Am I The Only One?

Jimmy Says One Thing, American General Another.

A top US general in Afghanistan has called for a revised military strategy, suggesting the current one is failing.
"I think the operation in Helmand province is showing signs of success," Mr Brown said.
"Our troops are making progress as they attempt to make the area safer. Despite the losses, our forces are doing a magnificent job in moving forward."
Further reading of these reports have Jimbo paving the way, one minute, for getting out, the next minute telling Obama he's going to increase troop numbers to train The Afghan Army. It seems he's so bewildered he's thrashing about for sound bites, drowned out by bugles. Get a grip man. Well, I suppose we know he is incapable of gripping anything but his rocking horse but no harm in asking!
As a final thought, I wonder when the possibility of defeat will become obvious to NATO and the politicians?

  2. I've just done a wee post including this. It'll be published in a wee while.

    It goes to prove the man went all the way to Afghanistan for a photo call because he obviously didn't listen to a word anyone said.
