What: "That time-line the GOP hawksters are decrying: it seems to have jolted Afghanistan's leadership into less complacency. __ One weird contradiction in current conservative thought. Isn't an open-ended commitment of arms and money and troops to a weak foreign country a dangerous form of dependency-generating welfare? If we can have welfare reform domestically, why can we not have it internationally?"
