Good Articles from the Left
I was skimming some liberal blogs, as I often do to keep up with what's going on in left-wing world, and I found a post at Beautiful Horizons called, "Afghanistan & Obama." It has links to two articles by David Corn, who writes for Mother Jones. Naturally my expectations were very low, but both pieces by Corn are excellent. The first is titled, "Obama Sending More Troops to Afghanistan, But It's Mission not Numbers that Counts." Good title that's difficult to argue with. The second is "Taking the "War" Out of Afghanistan," which makes an argument for a more realistic strategy with limited goals. I'm not often in agreement with David Corn about much of anything, but Afghanistan appears to be an exception.
