As the clock ticks down til the balloon goes up at Great Satan's premier Warcraft Academy - tons of eyes and ears are waiting on 44 to announce the new, improved AFPAK.
Here's irony for you - the very name AFPAK may be ditched as "...it infuriates both countries..." and will most likely feature a two for one deal:
Doubtless, 44 will lay it out to play it out as designed and/or influenced by combat rock stars and leaks about France kicking in an additional 1.5k troops along with Great Britain's 5K may give small boon to the 30K Combat GI's (about 4 additional brigades).
Probably won't be spoken out loud - yet if corruption in Afghanistan is truly to be faced down - destroying or capturing those wacked, wild, wicked pop pop poppy fields has got to be on the menu.
Also, note Great Satan will be able to shape the violence on a regional scale with that much hard power in hand - a good sign to keep huge bits of Pakistan from falling into internat'l rec'vership - which after all is the Pak in AFPAK.Pic "Fighting to win!"
