More in Sorrow than Anger

WASHINGTON (AP) — The violence that has surged for two years in Afghanistan reached a new high last week, and more difficulty lies ahead, the commander of U.S. troops in the Middle East said Thursday.
Gen. David Petraeus said the number of attacks in Afghanistan over the last week hit the highest level since the December 2001 fall of the Taliban.
That would be the Afghanistan where our deployment might be completed without a shot fired in anger according to John Reid all those years ago.
