What can you tell me about Oregon Representative (2nd district) Greg Walden?

Thanks for the awesome gift to the U of O. Will there be more like this in the future?

Forgive me, but I haven't seen a response to the well-posed question regarding the recent move by the Ismaelis to re-constitute their militia, re-arm & take over the defense of Herat. Reports of other war lords re-organizing tribal or regional militias are on the rise. It does look a lot like the "Vietnamization" program years ago that failed so miserably to train the ARVN to take over from US troops during the end-stages of the Vietnam war. Do you have any confidence that Afghanistan will end up any differently, given these recent developments? And if the war lords all re-arm, won't civil war be a given?
