Military Planning Food Drops in Afghanistan

So far so good. Dare I hope that they'll get it right
this time? I have this horrible sickness in the pit
of my stomach that they won't. They never have
before. (Except for that turkey shoot in Iraq, but
then, Saddam's still there, and how many innocents
have suffered in the last ten years because of that?
Fuck! It's hopeless. Here we go again.) Maybe it's
statistical. You know, blind luck, random chance.
They screw up ten thousand times in a row, and then,
by total accident, they get it right.

Oh, the utter irrationality of hope in the face of
desperation. I find myself praying. Praying!!!
Accidentally. "Oh God, please, let it not be as bad
as it CAN be! Please let me be wrong--very wrong,
please!--this time."
