Afghanistan As Mudpie
a: State-building in afghanistan ~
b: baking a pavlova with mud
What: "The concept of state-building as part of irregular warfare or countering irregular threats is valid - so long as the makings are present in the state to be built. State-building in Afghanistan is like trying to bake a pavlova with only mud pie ingredients."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
