Afghanistan, Helmand Province: It's Different, When You're in Charge

The American president has 'carelessly' and 'unilaterally' involved America in another war, sinking this country in yet another 'quagmire' (or, as of this year, 'quicksand') of doom and despair.

But, since we've got a new president now, that's not the angle we're seeing in the news. Yet, anyway.

As I've written before, "it's different, when you're in charge."

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
