Harper pledging $110 million in 2015 and beyond -- rather than soldiers training Afghanis -- is more like guilty conscience money than a lifeline for a secure future.

Regardless of one's outlook, it's pretty hard to see anything emerging from Afghanistan or the Middle East that doesn't represent defeat for America's foreign and military policy.
