Afghanistan failure just goes to show...

The Surge Principles that worked in Iraq simply won't work there - Senator Biden a-told me so! That whole Anbar Awakening thing - a myth which, even if somehow true, could never be repeated, especially in Afghanistan, because the Taliban and al-Qaeda are one in the same, whereas Sunnis and secular Saddam and al-Qaeda and religious Shiites - c'mon, people, you know what I'm saying: Bush LIED! People DIED! Do I need to spell it out for you outside of the reality-based community?!

Well, uh, there's a new reality:

Taliban leaders are holding Saudi-brokered talks with the Afghan government to end the country's bloody conflict -- and are severing their ties with al Qaeda, sources close to the historic discussions have told CNN.
Funny, that. We were distracted from the "real" war yet somehow appear to be winning it anyway...
