Former OMLT-eer on Surge for AFG

My fave bit of BruceR’s latest post at Flit regarding the possibility of more U.S. troops being poured into Afghanistan, specifically, the potential of pouring them into Kandahar Airfield (KAF) and having them drop by the neighbouring regions:

Experience has proved the only way you keep the Afghan police alive and honest long enough for them to make a difference is by living with them 24/7, not by driving out on alternate mornings to see if they’re still breathing. Putting more soldiers into KAF, by contrast, will increase the lineups at the French bistro and the Burger King, but will do absolutely nothing to help Afghans.
