INTELLIGENCE BRIEF: THE AFGHAN SUMMER OF BLOOD


My intelligence analysis seems to bring forth a picture that this upcoming Afghan Summer is going to be the most fiercest and deadliest to date in the history of Western forces in Afghanistan.

As promised, I thought I should discuss what I have been promising for the few past days, the nature and character of the failure of the Afghan war.
