General Stanley McChrystal, military commander in Afghanistan, was summoned to the White House by President Obama after the General publicly disparaged top administration officials. His remarks appear to reflect his frustration over being put in charge of an unwinnable war.

As is so frequently the case, the point of the Afghanistan campaign is not to defeat an aggressive enemy, but to prolong a conflict that is profitable for the politically connected.

Richard Holbrooke, Obama?s special envoy to Afghanistan, laid out the matter bluntly in an interview with the German press in which he frankly said that those who support the occupation will get a cut of . Afghanistan?s considerable mineral wealth

Among them are what the New York Times calls ?a network of warlords ? who are making millions of dollars escorting NATO convoys? in a Mafia-style protection racket. But the whole undertaking is nothing but a vast criminal enterprise.

Gen. McChrystal will almost certainly be sacked. A better choice would be to end the Afghan war.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
