Iraq and Afghanistan

Dry Bones cartoon - Iraq and Afghanistan
I like to use these two "barstool pundits" as observers of the news as presented on the small screen in a neighborhood bar.

I read these two news items this morning and thought to myself "well things don't seem to be going according to plan." The kind of dumb observation appropriate for the two... So I put it into their mouths.

Here's the Boycott story.

And this quote:

"Meanwhile, Afghanistan is on the brink of becoming a narco-state with drug cartels now posing a greater threat to the country's future than Taliban insurgents, NATO's top military commander in Europe said yesterday."
is from this Afghanistan story.

If you ask me, things are not going according to plan.
