Both Not-Mohammed and Hermann the Humann agree….
“Nixon was a brilliant politician who suffered a moment of ego.
Obama is a brilliant ego who is suffering a moment of politician”.
In 1970, under expertly applied political pressure, President Nixon developed an exit strategy to the war in Vietnam based on the idea that communist aggression could be effectively countered through “Vietnamization.” This strategy was contingent on the belief that the Army of the Republic of Vietnam had both the resolve and the ammunition to resist the aggression of the North Vietnam People’s Army, the NVA. They had the ammunition, they didn’t have the resolve. Also, they were completely infiltrated by NVA intelligence agents. By knowing western plans in advance, the NVA was able to avoid large scale suicidal confrontations and instead conduct debilitating small scale raids against betrayed forces clearly superior to their own.
Fast forward to Afghanistan. To what extent do you believe the west is able to infiltrate the army of the Taliban? To what extent do you believe the army of the Taliban is able to infiltrate the army of Afghanistan? How often will the west know of the Taliban’s planned movements and intentions versus the Taliban’s knowledge of the west’s? Regardless of troop numbers, winning this conflict is primarily contingent on intelligence. If we have it, we will. If we don’t, we won’t.
