A poor sap who doesn’t get politics

by

Bob Rae writes about the extension of the Afghanistan mission.

It’s called doing what you think is right, talking to the public about it, and worrying less about who gets credit.  There’s something almost pathological about the state of our politics, to say nothing of political commentary, if we can’t have that kind of conversation.

There should continue to be a debate about Afghanistan, Pakistan, and how to deal with the range of failed and fragile states that are emerging across the world.  But enough with the nonsense about who played the partisan game better.
