Overheard at Table Four: The Evening News

The say that the Taliban is gaining strength again in Afghanistan.  11 years, and we're back to square one.   Square.  One.

Numbers are not significant.  Small bands of insurgents can topple a country, especially when power is held by people who are generally unfollowable.

And who's this Karzai guy anyway?  He looks generally mean, but more of just one of those cowardly leaders who holds power by sheer crafty manipulation.   At least with the psycho dicatators, your Castros and your Chavez's, at least you knowwhere they stand.  This guy is one of those puppets that we always install, and are only useful until they fall.
