Afghanistan War: a picture tells a story

When I saw the following graphic in Anthony Cordesman's report The Afghan-Pakistan War: A Status Report(Center for Strategic and International Studies [CSIS]) 05/12/08, p. 15, the line from an old Rod Stewart song started running through my head, "Every picture tells a story, don't it?"

The story here is about the Afghanistan War. After over six years of war and endless talk from the Cheney-Bush administration about how we "liberated" Afghanistan, the green areas show the parts of Afghanistan where the national government, on whose behalf the US and NATO are still at war and escalating, actually exercises full authority.

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
