Afghanistan Strategy?

I am more than likely not too popular with Leftists and centrists: I firmly believe there is only one way to win the theatre of war in Afghanistan. America needs a WWII mentality to do whatever it takes to win a war even if civilians (who more than likely support their leaders) are harmed in collateral damage. Now it is obvious that eight years of war fighting non-national entities that are transnational terrorists is a bit too long to go without a decisive crippling of the enemy.

Carpet bombing of training camps and terrorist managed opium fields used to generate narco-bucks needs to take place. Then one may ask: “What about the Tora Bora cave system that is used as an effective terrorist hideout for the Taliban and al Qaeda?” It is time to use surgical nuclear strikes equal to a little lesser than the Atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. That’s correct. I said the politically incorrect of nukes. Also I am not just speaking of the mountains of Afghanistan but also the mountains and training camps of Pakistan.

Will Pakistan protest? More than likely that would be the case. Will Pakistan use its nuke arsenal in retaliation against American in Afghanistan or Iraq? A Pakistani nuke reprisal would be a foolish strategy since America is capable of blowing our erstwhile ally off the map. The old Cold War Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) is something the Pakistan military would comprehend (unlike the Mullah-Messianic dictatorship of Iran).

Anyway, here are some previous posts I have utilized concerning an Afghan strategy:

    · “Comment: Can We Win in Afghanistan,” by Gary H. Johnson, Jr.

    · “
    Resolve 9/11,” by John R. Houk

    · “
    Is This Obama’s War?” by JudgeBob.

Now Ben of Ben’s Blog has a radical view on Afghanistan. Ben’s post is really a critique of a Col. Tom Snodgrass post at American Thinker. Ben has some agreement and disagreement which I feel is worth the read.
