Barack Obama is rehearsing the speech in which he will tell the American due to the brilliant success of his stategy he can now announce victory in the war and another 30,000 troops are being sent to Afghanistan to help organise the celebrations. Mean while Boggart Blog has learned a little more of how bad things are out there.
The main supply route is through the Hindu Kush mountains where Taliban fighters, bandits and tribal warlords are attacking the convoys and stealing 70% of the supplies.
Sending more troops will only mean we have to send more stuff for the Taliban to steal. No doubt if they can’t use it all themselves they will be selling it back to us.
Talk about being shafted up the Khyber Pass.
