One of Brian’s Favorite Quotes

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.”
— Bertrand Russell (1872–1970)
 Marriage And Morals, 1929, Ch. 5

End Game: Afghanistan

President Obama will mark the end of America’s combat mission in Afghanistan by welcoming home service members

in New Jersey on Monday.

Denis Slattery of the Daily News writes that, in his remarks, the president will note that:

The war in Afghanistan is coming to a “responsible end.” 

Meanwhile, as Bill Roggio writes at Long War Journal:

The Taliban followed up two deadly attacks in Kabul earlier last week with a series of bombings, assaults, and suicide attacks in the capital and four provinces over the weekend. Twelve de-mining personnel, 11 Afghan soldiers and police, two Coalition troops, and a Supreme Court official are among those killed.

And as the AP reports:

Officials said Sunday that U.S. Army Spc. Wyatt J. Martin of Mesa, Arizona, and Sgt. 1st Class Ramon S. Morris of New York, New York, died Friday in Parwan Province, Afghanistan. The vehicle the men were in was attacked with an improvised explosive device.
