The three-day personnel problem ended as well as the White House could have wanted, but, because it’s a symptom of the larger problem of the war, the McChrystal uproar is going to resonate long after sniping about the old soldier—and about Vice-President “Bite Me”—has faded away.Well, except that Vice President "Bite Me" is going to live a very long time.
Those not worried about Afghanistan are not paying attention. Further, how Afghanistan ends will be important for determining how the "Long War" ends. How the Long War ends will be important for determining how Islamist Extremist Terrorism winds down in the United States and across Europe (and the UK).
