Afghanistan Spring

All winter long American generals have been crowing about the "progress" they were making against insurgents. But that was winter when the wise Taliban stayed home warming by the fire. Let the Americans rule the brutal blizzards of the Afghan plains.
Now it is spring. The fields are greening.
The poppies are blooming.
And the Afghan insurgents are emerging, renewed and refreshed, with a winter's worth of outrages to seek vengeance against.
It's going to be a long, hot summer in Kabul.
