Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The war in Afghanistan is self-perpetuating. The United States is funding both sides of the war with borrowed money while back home, the nation is locked in a long recession with high unemployment with no end in sight.

The U.S. intelligence community seems to be more interested in perpetuating its own interests in Afghanistan by drawing out the war as long as possible.

You make a compelling, if dispiriting, case.

We're screwed.
