Don’t Know Much About History

If you ever wanted to know why I could never be a Democrat, it’s because of statements like this (h/t the Weekly Standard’s blog):

Rep. John Murtha said Tuesday the situation in Afghanistan is so challenging that he estimated it would take 600,000 troops to fully squelch violence in the country.

The Pennsylvania Democrat, who chairs the powerful subcommittee that funds the military, said his figure was based on the country’s history of rigorous fighting and its size.

Let’s ask the last country who put a large ground force in Afghanistan how that went, shall we?
