Mission Never-to-be-Accomplished

 Gen. John R. Allen, supreme allied commander in Afghanistan, describing his hopes for withdrawing American forces from that country,
We want them to miss us because we were special to them. We don’t want them wiping their brows and saying, ‘Thank God they’re gone.’
But they will say exactly that, only the thanks will be to Allah.  Many Afghans wish they could say those words now. 

So do many Americans.
