Roger Kimball at PJ Media commented on this in a post that ran March 22, titled "How to lose a war, Afghan desk". In it he posits a couple of alternative scenarios of how this might work, neither of which is good for the US effort. They're actually a bit funny, in a morbidly cynical way. I agree with his conclusion. You should go read it--it's only five short paragraphs.
I'm reminded of this quote, which you can find in the left sidebar if you scroll down: "People who try to be sensitive in a war have a tendency to die, and to take their nations with them." -- Steven Den Beste, 21 Sept 2002. It was true then, is true now, and will be for eons to come.
