...When you have to soldier through the "Bush still hasn't caught Bin Laden" discussions at family functions:
Afghanistan is a very large country that's rife with every terrain conducive to avoiding capture. If you transposed Afghanistan over the US it would span from Cincinnati to Atlanta --and DC to New Orleans...as illustrated by my handy little map.
Of course this "Bush hasn't caught Bin Laden" line of thinking pisses me off anyway because Bush isn't over there scaling treacherous mountains looking for Bin Laden --or inoculating children in rural warlord lands to ingratiate himself and glean information. Our troops are doing that -and this argument and line of thinking degrades them and their efforts.
