Mike, at The Questionable Authority, has a valuable
perspective on what
I wrote earlier, in First,
Do No Harm, Part II. He corrects some of my sloppy
thinking on the matter, plus, he knows more about the subject than I
do. I replied that, even though he has more direct
information than I do, I still think I am right.
The question is whether we should stay, or get out, of Iraq and
Afghanistan. I am not claiming to know what we should do, but
I am putting forth my opinion anyway. I’d be curious to hear
what a neutral third party has to say about the exchange. Not
that it would settle the matter, but I am sure that there are others
out there with more direct information that could help us figure out
which is the correct perspective.
