Gates: US Must Prove Afghanistan ‘Winnable’ in a Year

In an interview published today, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates declared that the American public is “pretty tired” of the seemingly endless war in Afghanistan, and said he believed that forces had to turn the situation around in a year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, SecDef Gates, just how do you define "winnable" here, when during the last 8 years, US and NATO forces have accomplished absolutely nothing, except bringing more misery on the already pretty miserable Afghan people?

And the US and NATO are supposed to "win" with just a little over 10% of the compliment the old Soviet Union had here to "pacify" Afghanistan with 500,000 pairs of boots on the ground?
