General Sir David Richards: allied failure ‘would intoxicate terrorists’

The new head of the British Army, General Sir David Richards, also warned last night that Nato had yet to find the right formula for success in Afghanistan. General Richards also warned that defeat for the international coalition would have an “intoxicating impact” on extremists around the world. Failure for an alliance as powerful as the NATO presence in Afghanistan would convince terrorists that “anything might be possible”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder how Sir David Richards defines "victory" in Afghanistan; because from where I sit, the only "winners" in this war right now are the defense contractors and the drug dealers.
