I suppose Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s heart is in the right place, but, um.
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on Wednesday the Western military bloc is seeking greater Russian assistance for international operations in Afghanistan.
Speaking to reporters after talks with President Dmitry Medvedev, Rasmussen said he was inviting Russia to step up its assistance in Afghanistan, including by supplying helicopters, spare parts and fuel, and by training pilots.
What could possiblygo wrong here? The last time the Russians stepped up “its assistance” in Afghanistan, the Afghan people went on to enjoy the fruits of Russian generosity and prosperity. NATO is right to underscore an essential continuity.
Rasmussen — seriously now — has rather uncritically embraced the Afghanistan war to date as NATO secretary-general, but this is a new plateau. He might need a quick history lesson before this goes forward.
