Stories like this from the AP demonstrate beyond a doubt that we are in a full scale LIC (low intensity conflict).  The seriousness of this goes beyond Vietnam analogies.  The fact is that no major conventional power has ever won a LIC in the last 50 years.  Period.  We will lose if we stay (and humiliated if we stay or withdraw).  This foredrawn conclusion is due to a variety of complex factors, but the result is that we are likely already outmatched (even by this rabble).  Any ideas on exit strategies?  [John Robb's Weblog]
