Meanwhile in the War Formerly Called Good

News out of Afghanistan is sparse--shark summer taking priority in reporting, of course. But Strategypage has an update on the war.

One bit of good news in light of our failure to do this in Iraq after 2011 is that our special forces and air power (drones mostly) are still in the jihadi-killing business.

Afghanistan is a patchwork of tribal entities rather than a real state. But that doesn't mean we can't win in the territory called Afghanistan.
