Why America is losing in Afghanistan

Motivation. The Taliban, AQ et al have it in spades. American soldiers are brave and tough as they are don't have it to the same degree. Not at all. "This is not to denigrate", says Pat Buchanan, "the brave Afghan soldiers who have bled and died. But the Taliban have not needed U.S. training, U.S. arms, U.S. air and fire support or U.S. paychecks to go into battle. All the suicide bombers who give up their lives are — Taliban."
