What it takes to end a war

This morning I mis-read a NY Times headline talking about the Administration debate of a "Faster" pullout from Afghanistan. I read "Easter" - then blinked and realized my error. Too bad, I thought. Easter would be brilliant.

In the wake of the news of an atrocity, the nation is asking why we are still there. I'm wondering what it will take, what would be sufficient, to justify an end to this war. Right ot wrong at its outset, and I believe it was right then, it is terribly wrong now.

We all know it, so how can it possibly continue?

FEATURED QUOTE

"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."
