WASHINGTON -- My, it is surely nice, after the cordial, cooperative visit between President Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai last week, to finally have some clarity sprinkled over our confusing wars.

Unquestionably, the American president's words were the most reassuring as he spoke Friday at the White House: "The reason we went to war in the first place is now within reach: ensuring that al-Qaida can never again use Afghanistan to launch attacks against our country.

"Starting this spring," he said, "our troops will have a different mission -- training, advising, assisting Afghan forces. This sets the stage for the further reduction of coalition forces."

How wonderful, one thought, reading this. Yes, much of the last 12 years has been wasted, young lives have been lost that should be blooming, and history shoul
