US Defense Secretary Robert Gates, water carrier to the most delusional administration in his nation's history, has called into question the committment of some NATO nations to "winning in Afghanistan."
This jackass, whose own nation created the mess in Afghanistan by bailing out of that country to create an even greater mess in Iraq, told a group of senior US officers, "The failure to meet commitments puts the Afghan mission - and with it, the credibility of NATO - at real risk.''
These comments attempt to perpetuate Washington's self-serving myth that Afghanistan is NATO's mission, not its own. It's America that has some 30,000 soldiers in Afghanistan compared to 160,000 in Iraq - all of it on a deranged, diseased, bald bastard's wet dream. It's America, and Gates' very own Pentagon, that have created two losing wars and now stand on the verge of opening a third.
If the other NATO nations need any advice about maintaining their credibility, best that advice come from a country that can still claim some credibility itself.
