The illustrious Vigilante has a fantastic post on the recent remarks of Robert Gates, our defense secretary. His comments were, "I'm worried we're deploying NATO advisors that are not properly trained and I'm worried we have some military forces that don't know how to do counterinsurgency operations. . . Most of the European forces, NATO forces, are not trained in counterinsurgency; they were trained for the Fulda Gap."
The Brits, the Dutch and--on behalf of Canada--the Toronto Star quite rightly and eloquently told Gates to shove his comments up his Fulda Gap.
