Shakespeare Weighs in on Afghanistan

Henry VI, Part 1, Act 1, Scene 1
Messenger: Among the soldiers, this is muttered---
That here you maintain several factions,
And whilst a field should be despatched and fought,
You are disputing of your generals:
One would have lingering wars, with little cost:
Another would fly swift, but wantest wings:
A third man thinks, without expense at all,
By guileful fair words peace may be obtained.

Sounds pretty much like the Loyal Opposition.
