Intercontinental Hotel Attack

Quote:
As the transition draws near, the attack on the hotel has only reinforced the belief of Afghans and foreigners that Afghan forces are not ready to take over security responsibilities. "We heard shooting and we saw the police dropping their weapons and running from the area," says Noor Mohammad, a member of the National Directorate of Security who was still in uniform and had been at the hotel for his boss' birthday party. "I can't trust them. How can I trust them? They dropped their weapons because they heard some shooting. How can they ensure security for us? How can they fight against the Taliban? No way, I don't trust them at all," he says quietly as he cradled a hand that had been cut by barbwire as he helped his boss' children escape down the hillside.

I think the point they tried to make was that Afghan security can't even protect Kabul.

Hopefully it's obvious we have no viable role there. The people have no confidence in their government or military. They should seal that country up for a 1000 years and then peak in to see if they have evolved or killed themselves.

I pictured this all in my head. Like wrapping a tent around them. Then just barrrrrely opening it, like sneaking a peek when your parents were wrapping your gifts from 'santa'.

good analogy, both are delusionally based concepts.
