It should also be remembered that Russia was doing their fair share to counter any US efforts. And I should also point out that we are inviting a moderators warning for veering so far from topic. There is other threads that have discussed this in depth.
    I think the modest help referred to would include those items which are an effective counter to the force the rebels faced. Modest in this case would refer to an amount of assistance and not the nature of it. Were we to offer assistance to the rebels similar in kind to that the Russians have supplied Assad with, it would include some of the most sophisticated weapons in our arsenal. We did have an opportunity to offer meaningful but modest assistance of such a nature to the rebels before the extremist element compromised their effort, but we let it pass. That was a mistake.

    Do you? I'm not the topic of the thread either.

    Isn't it about Obama getting his propaganda from the media? But you guys keep telling us that the media is his propaganda. So which is it?

    I can only blame him for surrounding himself with people that would hide the facts and feed is propoganda.

IMO, the muddled outcome to date is not surprising. Mr. Karzai has been and remains a big part of the problem with his corruption, cronyism, and provincialism.

    There is no way to force the Afghans to like us. You really want us to "kill them all" which is even more ludicrous.
