From a piece written by Alfred de Montesquiou about the offensive action going on in Afghanistan.

“Also Tuesday, U.S. artillery fired non-lethal smoke rounds to disperse Taliban fighters in Marjah _ the first time cannons have been used in the fight to drive the militants from their logistical and opium poppy-smuggling base. Commanders refused a Marine request to fire deadly high-explosive rounds because the unit on the ground could not be sure civilians weren’t at risk.”

This happened after we warned everyone that the attack was coming. Then we refuse to use our best weapons. Truly we have lost the will to win in Afghanistan. We should wave the white flag and go home. Political correctness and Washington politics have lost the war for us.
