Afghanistan: Finished Before We've Re-Started?
With all our problems with civilian casualties, Karzai, and warding off the Taliban (even in the Helmand town we supposedly secured already), the question is: might today’s US attack on a civilian bus in Kandahar, the key prize in McChystal’s strategy and the heart of the enemy, represent a tipping point even before the surge is fully in place?
Specifically, in circling the bus are the Afghans circling the wagons against American intervention?
