    Fantastic article here from Dexter Filkins (author of "The Forever War" a book that I've heard is fantastic as well but haven't gotten to read yet) detailing the situation that we're facing right now in Afghanistan.

    Lot of good insight on how McChrystal says he plans on fixing things if he's able to get the resources he needs.

    "The Forever War" is a great book, I highly recommend it. Filkins did a pretty good job of presenting the war in an unbiased fashion, and the dude is a great writer.

    I plan on picking it up here in my next round of books along with "The Looming Tower" by Lawrence Wright.

    Yeah, I'm on a little bit of an Afghanistan/War on Terror in general kick right now.

    Compelling stuff.

    It's just more of what I've been saying for years that this war is about making money at the expense of human life. It's obscene.

    Iraq for sale should be mandatory viewing for anyone about to sign up for the military.
