The Only Way to Win in Afghanistan

Does the President have the stones or the sand to win? I don't think so. Captain's Journal
Force Projection is necessary. We must go after them where they live, where they traffic their supplies, and where they recruit and train. We must shut down their logistics, kill their fighters, and cause them to live in fear. We must cause them to stay on the run such that they have neither the time nor supplies to construct or emplace IEDs. Only then will they be so preoccupied with staying alive that they forget the population. Then we will have won. IEDs will no longer be a problem because the Taliban aren't a problem. They go hand in hand, and one will not be defeated without the other. We cannot first defeat IEDs and then the Taliban -- just like it was in Iraq. -- Herscherl Smith @ The Captain's Journal
