So now for a change in the command of the military in Afghanistan. I thought I remember Barry saying he liked the current command situation a few months back, guess not. Well we shall see how this plays out but I'm gonna go ahead and say we will never win this war. The Soviet Union's collapse started with their failed war in Afghanistan what makes us think we are gonna be any different?
