UN vs. US: Two Approaches to Lasting Peace in Afghanistan

Every so often an opinion piece strikes me as being both novel and dead right. Yesterday's New York Post column by Charles Santos is such a piece. It takes the U.N. to task for trying to impose a doomed centralized government on Afghanistan and endorses a more regionally based approach similar to the one used by the United States in toppling the Taliban government. The reasoning is sound, the writing is clear, and the conclusion is unassailable.
