Editorial: Afghan war effort is out of justifications

My, my, how times have changed.
    It was only a couple of years ago that the unnamed Courier editor was lambasting the Obama administration for "twiddling" over the decision to send yet more troops into that famous graveyard of empires, Afghanistan. Today's editorial sounds remarkably like the sort of advocacy that in '09 he excoriated as an attempt to "appease the far-left wing of the Democratic party."
    Back then the right-wing commenters piled on for more troops. Today the right-wing commenters are piling on to bug out, demonstrating the old saw about how Republicans fall in line.
    Consider how the world would be different now had they seen this same light as we wacko lefties did back in '02.
     Here is my response to the previous editorial, and below is the very first graphic to appear on this blog.
