From today's Washington Post:
Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, cautioned troops on Monday to exercise greater discipline in Afghanistan to minimize civilian casualties and to win Afghans' support as they implement the administration's new war strategy.
The perfect send-off to "counterinsurgents" ordered into "armed social work," to win not anything like a war (for what? don't ask), but rather the "support" of 20-plus million tribalistic and barbaric Muslims.
Howz about if the good admiral goes first?
