The democracy that we have exported to Afghanistan...
... is on par with the democracy we once established in South Vietnam.
Now I'm down to waiting a few years to watch scenes of the last American helicopters departing Kabul, because Harmid Karzai is turning into the Taliban's secret weapon.
My only remaining questions are:
1) Is Karzai best considered as Ngo Dinh Diem, Duong Van Minh, or Nguyen Van Thieu?
2) Who will ultimately emerge as the Taliban's Vo Nguyen Giap?
3) When will the first parallel biography comparing Robert McNamara to Robert Gates be published?
