Afghanistan slipping away.
As we approach Day 1400 there are some ominous signs in Afghanistan. Bush never finished the job in Afghanistan and it looks like it may fall into chaos. Violence is increasing the Taliban shooting of a U.S. military helicopter and possible capture of elite special forces does not bode well. People who think creating a democracy in Iraq is achievable in the next 3 years of the Bush presidency should think again given what is happening in Iraq and Afghanistan.
