we should all just move there

David Sirota brought this to my attention:

The 34,000 troops Obama will send will not be enough to saturate Afghanistan, which is the only way the U.S. could "win" the occupation. "The U.S. Army's recently revised counterinsurgency manual estimates that an all-out counterinsurgency campaign in a country with Afghanistan's population would require about 600,000 troops." Get that? 600K, folks.

There is stupid. There is unforgivable. Then there is stupid and unforgivable.
