Like so many actions...

As to Afghanistan and Pakistan, if the Obama administration continues its current policies, following the December policy review, it is going to have to recognise that, like so many actions by the United States since 9/11, seeking military superiority over the Taliban may prove to be deeply counterproductive, both to the region and to its own wider security needs.

Counterproductive to all our needs.
Wouldn't it be nice if our world "leaders" grew up? Or better still, if we chose those with wisdom to run the ship?
