POSTED RESPONSE TO AN ARTICLE IN THE TORONTO GLOBE AND MAIL
Clinton is simply out of her mind.
Two dozen countries sending seven thousand troops?
And many or most not for combat?
That's an average of about 290 troops per country.
290 cooks, guards, and orderlies each.
Some world crisis.
Everyone clearly sees what a mistake Afghanistan is, except the government of the United States.
Of course those eager not to offend American sensibilities, or those whose assistance or favors from America are under threat, send their token contingent.
This whole matter is like one of those slightly absurd British comedies of four or five decades ago.
World crisis, civilization in peril, so we better send 290 troops.
The press should be embarrassed to even report such press-release fantasy as an event.
Clinton should be embarrassed to utter a word about these 24 mice roaring, but this woman is long ago beyond any possible embarrassment, having said countless absurd things in recent years or quickly backtracking what she has previously said, making absolutely no sense in most of what she says.
Were a major business run the way America runs wars and foreign policy, the economy would collapse.
