"Afghanistan Gains." If ever there were an oxymoron, that is it.
Nothing inherently wrong with going after TRUE theats, the problem in Afg is "nationbuilding" (counter-insurgency).
The problem in Paki is the drones are aggrevating the populace to the point they are blocking US supply lines thru Kyber.
The problem in Yemen is radicalizing the local populace, to the point they give harbor to AQ.
The problem is mindless categorizing of "militants"/extremists"/AQ - without any discrimination.
INO words..."shoot first, ask questions later"

President Obama, bring them home now.
