U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Monday that the Afghan war against Taliban guerrillas can never be won militarily and urged support for efforts to bring "people who call themselves Taliban" and their allies into the government.So the war in Afghanistan wasn't fought to avenge 911 or to catch Bin Laden. Now it appears it wasn't even fought to overthrow the Taliban, or more accurately, it was fought to knock them down a peg or two?
The Tennessee Republican said he learned from briefings that Taliban fighters were too numerous and had too much popular support to be defeated on the battlefield.
"You need to bring them into a more transparent type of government," Frist said during a brief visit to a U.S. and Romanian military base in the southern Taliban stronghold of Qalat. "And if that's accomplished, we'll be successful."
These right-wing politicians are going NUTS!!
