Even Karzai Knows Better

My Way News - Karzai: War Not Getting at Terrorism Cause:
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - One of America's closest allies says the war on terrorism fails to address its root causes.

Experts agreed with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, saying Friday the major military offensive against the Taliban will not fix Afghanistan's larger crises - a lack of reconstruction and jobs, a booming drug trade, and a weak government.

'You won't win unless you can convince people that progress is being made,' said Marvin Weinbaum, a former State Department analyst now a scholar at the Washington-based Middle East Institute.
Gee, you mean bombing and shooting and making speeches doesn't convince people that progress is being made? Has the pResident been notified?
