don’t worry if you don’t get it

like somebody said-

it takes one year to understand this country,
and two years to understand that you never will.

  1. ah, too true

  2. And here I was under the impression one could spend a week embedded with some Marines, become an *expert*, and make tons of money off the articles and book…

  3. On the other hand, the idea that Afghanistan is a very complicated place can be taken too far in very sinister directions, as in “Afghanistan isn’t like *any* *other* *country* after war/s and Afghans are an incomprehensible bunch we’ll never understand, so let us apply policies here that we would never apply elsewhere.”

  4. wise!
