New NATO Boss Promises to Finish Job in AFG

Good things coming from the new Secretary-General of NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

This, via Bloomberg news wire:

“I’m not in favor of setting timelines …. Let no Taliban propagandist try to sell my message as a run for the exits. It is not. We will support the Afghan people for as long as it takes.”

Even better, this, via Associated Press, during a visit to Afghanistan:

“I can assure you and the Afghan people that we will stay and support you for as long as it takes to finish our job.”

Now, let’s see how long the political stamina of individual member countries allows this to continue.
