"Play it again, Sam."

“The situation in Afghanistan is serious, but success is achievable and demands a revised implementation strategy, commitment and resolve, and increased unity of effort.”
Gen. Stanley McChrystal
Commander of US and NATO troops
in Afghanistan

“History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.”

Short and sweet, and to the point. Sometimes you don't even have to say it, they say it for you. This might be a little farfetched, but increasing the troop strength in Afghanista and maintaining the troop levels in Iraq gives the US two fronts to attack Iran if the Isrealis should bomb. Just a thought.

Three guess on who that won't be. The same crew that didn't get the last laugh in Vietnam.
