HAPPY HOUR | The intricacies of war

In the summer of 2009, during a presentation in Kabul, Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the leader of American and NATO forces in Afghanistan, was shown this PowerPoint slide.

It was supposed to depict the complexity of American military strategy.

His comment, as dry as a Martini: “When we understand that slide, we’ll have won the war.”

Now I know why the US is stuck there.
