If Ralph Peters Says It, Does That Make It Right?

Apparently so, if his new call to leave Afghanistan is to be believed. He calls it ‘Blood for Nothing’ and he most definitely has that part right. Seems a different tone than his demand last month to have the Taliban go ahead and kill a captured American soldier. There are three possible explanations, in my mind: 1) Peters is reading LRC, and actually learning something; 2) Prole Media has recognized how the public really feels about our useless, wasteful, and illegal occupations abroad, and is trying to salvage readership; or 3) US policy is going to change and state media tools, just as they paved the way for government-desired murder and theft in 2001 and 2003, are now paving the way for drawdown.
