I would say the same to their leaders. Put up or shut up.

Hellfire missiles do cause a lot of butthurt in addition to the regular hurt.

Yes, because if anyone can say they have been successful, it's the tally tards. It's not like they have been raped by the thousands now, and have become a token derp spewing force.

Kind of hard to react with righteous indignation when you routinely use civilians as human shields and are HUGE fans of human rights violations. Also, I'll take one Prince Harry in an Apache over every single Taliban "soldier" in existence. Those people put the "shiat" in "cowardly sacks of shiat".

To be fair, though, we're leaving, they'll still be there, and they'll probably be able to take over again.

Actually I have read that modern computer based combat can be very similar to video game play, that the military train on computer game like consoles, and that the military might even recruit top gamers.

Maybe if they would stop pretending it is the 7th century they could develop a Playstation of their own.

According to most observers who have spent time with the Taliban, the majority of their free time is taken up with drugs and butt-sex. No homo. Just good old "I love you like a brother" butt-sex.

This.

Militarily they are shattered and gutted. We've killed their leadership so many times over that they are down to the also-rans running the show. They have no ability to be a cohesive fighting force, they are little more than a heavily armed street gang at this point. The only thing propping them up is copious finances from the fact that they pretty much own the global opium trade, around 90% of the entire global opium/heroin trade is Taliban run, and heroin sales worldwide are pretty much what is keeping them running.

Our biggest worry about Afghanistan in the long term should be trying to build a stable and sustainable Afghani government that will survive without the US there to prop it up. That's a challenge when many of the locals, especially outside Kabul and Kandahar, think of themselves first and foremost as members of their tribe and not as Afghanis, and they have no cultural concept of electoral democracy. If they have a problem, they don't think to go to the government, their Weeners is to go to their tribal elders. The elders tend to be very archaic in their ways, very distrusting of outsiders, and don't seem to grasp the entire concept of a Republic either.

Until the USSR invaded in '79 and they got dragged into international affairs, they really had been culturally and politically untouched by the 20th century.

Just getting that nation to the point where they believe they can solve political issues at the ballot box instead of with guns is a challenge.

Most "top gamers" are either big fat slobs who couldn't run a 100 yards or skinny dweebs who couldn't do a pushup. Neither type could smooth a silk sheet if they had a hot date with a dame...

I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing that the US government refuses to treat indigenous tribals the same way they have in the past.

/I'm going to go with "good thing", because people, no matter how ass-backwards, don't deserve to be treated like that

I can't remember who said it, but someone pointed out that the last person to conquer Afghanistan was Alexander. We aren't willing to do what Alexander had to do (nor should we be).

I feel bad for Prince Harry on this one. I imagine the last thing on earth he felt like doing after being in Afghanistan for four or five months was sitting down with the media for a puff piece. It was because of an agreement the MOD came to with the press- that they wouldn't report on his whereabouts and compromise his safety and the safety of his unit if they could get an interview there on the day he was leaving to come home.

Yea, that agreement was apparently necessary.  Because the press suck that much.

The dude is right. The military is designing controls for the current generation with video game controllers in mind. It is just practical engineering, not a commentary on the state of affairs.

Well, I'm over here right now, and I'll just say that I wouldn't bet on the country's success after we leave.
