We all know that the American Empire's longest war of 16 years in Afghanistan is a total failure. The lives lost can never return. The Trillion dollars (with a "T") spent can never go back into our pockets. But U.S. Presidents never like to admit defeat, so the war is passed from one administration to the next with the hope that taxpayers will just accept it as a fact of life.
The Empire doesn't even want to pretend that success in Afghanistan is measurable anymore. The Pentagon has announced that 'Progress Metrics' of Afghan Army size are now classified.
American taxpayers need only to pay up...and shut up.
Jason Ditz of Antiwar.com reports:
For the last 16 years, the Pentagon’s “progress” in the occupation of Afghanistan has been measured by officials through multiple different statistics, and one most often cited has been the size of the Afghan military. Those numbers have struggled recently, with Afghanistan not recruiting well nor retaining its recruits. So that’s not a metric anymore.
