"According to US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta on December14, 'we are winning this very tough conflict here in Afghanistan.' Well, he and his followers might imagine they are winning their war, but in addition to Washington’s sacrifice of 1856 American soldiers (so far) in a futile conflict, what the geniuses of the Pentagon and the aid industry have also lost in their ten years of war is a very great deal of US taxpayers’ money. And they intend to waste much more in years to come." (12/21/11)
