Government is simply the word for those things we choose to do badly together.
Excuse me but I'm sick and tired of people calling any group of scumbag "Militia"Quote:"A purported Taliban statement Wednesday said the hardline militia would open "new fronts" in its fight and threatened "severe" action in the coming days."End Quote:Lets be clear, THEY ARE NOT MILITIA! Militia are what's need to address this problem.Quote:The dilemma for Afghan and coalition forces is countering the Taliban tactic of striking far-flung towns with a limited security presence before the insurgents blend back into the desert and local communities whenever a formidable threat appears, only to surface again in another area.End Quote:Lt. Col. Paul Fitzpatrick nails the problem on the head.Quote:"There are challenges because at the moment there are a finite number of security forces -- Afghan and coalition -- and the real solution is providing Afghan security and that has to be grown," Fitzpatrick said."End Quote:You cannot sustain a standing force sufficient to cover an entire country from guerrilla attacks indefinitely. Just ask the British from 18th c America.The only way to defend against such incursions on an ongoing basis is with a local militia, that is regular citizens drilled and practiced in the use of small arms, defending their homes and families.Such is the nature of a militia.
