"Afghanistan's not worth a mullah's hemorrhoid."
Putting the bulk of our effort into Afghanistan amounts to attacking a crisis in California by rescuing Nevada. It's Pakistan that lies (and lies and lies) at the heart of this problem.

Why on earth should the Pakistanis help us when we reward them lavishly for screwing us?
