Because it is normal

Max has a good rundown of some of the ongoing failures of US foreign policy and endless war: Hoist that rag:

It’s one thing when host-nation partners turn coat and shoot you in the back. That is just the cost of doing business. In 2012 the US instituted the “Guardian Angel” policy, under which soldiers interacting with host-nation forces were required to have their own guards to stop insider attacks. Now our own guys are turning on one another over slush funds and hookers.

If this all seems sickeningly normal that’s because it is normal.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
