Quote Of The Day

From Robert Gates:

Villagers need to “see that it’s their army that we’re helping. It’s not us kicking down their door. It’s an Afghan who’s kicking down their door”

Uhh, if the United States Army [or the local SWAT team] comes kicking down my door, I’ll probably be less upset than if, say, the Chinese army does so. But I’m still going to be pissed off about the whole matter.

    Robert Gates might want to look up the word “quisling” in a dictionary.

    If Afghans are kicking in doors at the behest of Americans, it ill still be blamed on Americans since people are not so easily fooled.
