Veteran journalist Tariq Ali said this morning that the war in Afghanistan is lost.
Specifically, he said that British intelligence has concluded that - no matter how many troops are sent in - the war is already lost and is unwinnable in the future.
Ali also said that, should Obama follow through on his campaign promise to send more troops into Afghanistan, it would be a foreign policy blunder as big as Bush getting us into Iraq.
No one since Alexander the Great has conquered Afghanistan. America and England will not break that losing streak.
