The Taliban know what they’re about; do we know what we’re about?

Regarding your post on the continuing murders of Western troops by their Afghan supposed allies, I just read this article on CNN and there is quite an assortment of quotes from various official parties. Sarkozy’s observation that “The French army is not in Afghanistan to be shot at by Afghan soldiers” is nice, but of course he doesn’t identify for what purpose the French Army (and other Western militaries) is in Afghanistan. This is probably because the intended outcome can’t be articulated beyond the nebulous concept of “stability.”
