Obama is adding Quagmire #2, Afghanistan and Pakistan, to Quagmire #1 (the Middle East.) He’s adding 20,000 troops to Afghanistan. This is only the beginning of a wider and deeper conflict. The Taliban is nearing Islamabad and gaining turf in Pakistan. Each Taliban victory in Pakistan reminds me of the way that Castro took over Cuba. Pakistan has nukes. Major war is visible on the horizon.
