General Scrooge McChrystal, head army guy in The Little Country That Could (Bring Down Empires) recently made the following gnomic statement
about the situation in Afghanistan, bringing military-speak tautology to a new height: “neither success nor failure can be taken for granted.” McChrystal went on to say that he would either "like a cup of coffee or not," "prefers boxers to briefs except when he doesn't," and "drinks to stay sober." Either way
, Afghanistan may or may not be going straight to hell
. Or heaven. And either way, McChrystal wants more, more, MORE soldiers to hang with.
