A very interesting look at the role of the "Great" European countries in Afghanistan.
I have an idea. Let's really get France involved. We should convince them to be trainers for the insurgency. This would get them out of our hair, make them happy doing something to oppose, decrease military readiness of the insurgency and, best of all, support our textile industry.
After all, somebody has to supply all those white flags they will be needing. Perhaps they could give them out in lieu of diplomas as the insurgents graduate training.
