Today the New York Times reports that President Obama “intends” to put forth

a new American approach to Afghanistan that will put more emphasis on waging war than on development, senior administration officials said Tuesday.

I wonder how long it will take until the “progressives” experience an acute feeling of buyers’ remorse. For me, stepping up the fight against Taliban is a great idea. But war versus development is a false choice, and a dangerous one. That is how we create new enemies and contribute to our own vulnerability.
