    From Alexander the Great to the Russians, nobody was able to conquer that barren and inhospitable land. What makes us think that we can do it?  
    It's not just Afghanistan, wherever we go, we stay there. As someone else once said, it's like the verse from the Eagles Hotel California. "You can check in anytime you like but you can never leave". Surreal.
    Do read Chalmers Johnson's "Dismantling the Empire". He makes a lot of sense.
