This Will Not End Well by George Will

George Will writes:

The president’s party will not support his new policy, his budget will not accommodate it, our overstretched and worn down military will be hard-pressed to execute it, and Americans’ patience will not be commensurate with Afghanistan’s limitless demands for it. This will not end well.

A case can be made for a serious, meaning larger and more protracted, surge. A better case can be made for a radically reduced investment of resources and prestige in that forlorn country. Obama has not made a convincing case for his tentative surgelet.

George Orwell said the quickest way to end a war is to lose it. But Obama’s half-hearted embrace of a half-baked nonstrategy — briefly feinting toward the Taliban (or al-Qaeda, or a “syndicate of terror”) while lunging for the exit ramp — makes a protracted loss probable.
