Afghan Diary: "A dumb ally is worse than a smart adversary"

"A dumb ally is worse than a smart adversary." -Pashtun Proverb

Many American soldiers out here probably would nod their head in agreement when they discuss the actions and inactions of soldiers from other countries.  While some countries stand and fight others with the best of the Americans others like the Poles have surrendered much Ghazni Province to the Taliban without a fight, Canadian soldiers fight tough but their commanders shut down after every causality, and the Germans refuse to fight.  Time Magazine has a good article on this subject.
