Thread Name: OBIT: Taliban--Gen. Franco (similarities!?)
Subject: RE: OBIT: Taliban--Gen. Franco (similarities!?)
Parallel with Spanish Civil War is that Afghanistan is a war of complex alliances--what happens on the ground really is a reflection of who has worked out what with who--The secret to resolving this, for once and for all, will be in keeping control of governing process after the Taliban are gone--if we hand everything over to anyone and walk away, things will be a mess again soon--
