While there have been encouraging indications that the Taliban have suffered significant loses in Pakistan, in Afghanistan it's an entirely different situation with the Taliban now winning, according to Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top American commander there.
The general warns that the number of U.S. casualties in Afghanistan will remain high for at least several months to come.
Perhaps it's time to re-evaluate the U.S. policy toward Afghanistan. Presumably we are there in search of those who perpetuated the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The questions we should be asking are are we getting any closer to getting them, are they even in Afghanistan any longer and is it worth the price in additional American blood to be continuing this mission?
