The real central front

By Creature

While politicians debate their big, face-saving, one last push into Iraq the real central front in the so called "war on terror" is spinning out of control. Today's NY Times details the creation of a "Taliban mini-state," where suicide bombers line-up to sign-up and the terror training goes unabated. As Matthew Yglesias notes: "The sad factor of the matter is that if we haven't already passed the tipping point in the Afghanistan/Pakistan area, we will have very soon." And Bush will leave another mess for his predecessor (or maybe his daddy) to clean up.
