Towards A Good Samaritan World

Thursday, July 07, 2005

An e-mailer to Andrew Sullivan has an interesting idea:

Brits will demand that we hand over the calm south to Iraqis and move troops (in particular SAS) to Afghanistan. There are some people in the mountains that we need to settle a score with.

That's a thought about how we could repay the British for their friendship. We could call up a few more troops to relieve the British in southern Iraq, so that they could move them to Afghanistan, which has tended to be neglected. Maybe we could ask the Aussies to contribute a few more too, out of solidarity with the British. And we could use the Londond attacks to pressure Musharraf to let the campaign against al-Qaeda move into the northern Pakistan.

However, I'm mouthing off about things I don't know much about. I better stop before I write something stupid.
