An unlikely book, Three Cups of Tea, is making the rounds among our military leaders in Afghanistan. Apparently it helps reinforce the need to engage the Afghan elders to build bridges with the civilian population. One of their main concerns was casualties from stray American bombs. I’m not sure why we need a book to figure this out but then…I’m not a General.
The General said “Three Cups of Tea”
Is useful in helping us see
That we’re viewed with disdain
When civilians are slain.
I don’t need the book to agree.
