Proof it’s easier to start a war than end one

Arianna Huffington: I’m in sun-and-creativity-soaked Cannes but can’t stop thinking about Kabul — specifically President Obama’s looming announcement of how many, or how few, troops he is going to bring home from Afghanistan as part of his long-promised start to a complete withdrawal by 2014 (that’s 13 years after the war began, for those keeping score at home). We know that it’s easier to start a war than to finish one — and we are seeing a case study of this in Afghanistan despite the fact that there’s a clear, widespread, and growing consensus on the value of us getting out. Indeed, even as we approach the mere announcement of the pullout, the pushback parade has begun — an aggressive campaign designed to ensure that the number of troops the president brings home is as small as possible.
