US Marine marksman, Sangin district, Helmand Province, Afghanistan, June 2011

Sangin is falling or has fallen.

What is Sangin?  A 200-square-mile petri dish inside the 250,000-plus-square-mile Afghanistan laboratory of for failed nation-building/COIN experimentation in blood overseen by George W. Bush, Barack Obama, David Petraeus, Stanley McChrystal and other mad political/military scientists while our own nation's borders remained, and remain, undefended.

A few notes from along the way.
