Colonel Roy seems to have problem undrstanding who he is working for. Certainly, Afganastan is going to be a long time in getting itself together to function as a 21st century nation. Especially considering that it has nver been a nation, as we know that term.
We do not have, nor have we ever, the responsibility of bringing this people,or any other, into the present century. Neither do we have the economic or social resources to do so.
I appreciate that it is hard for military oficers to obtain promotions on this side of the ocean, especially in peace time. However, Idon't see that as a legitimate reason to spend our youth and resources.
