And, still, in order that I fail in my mission, all it takes are 20 seconds out of a 24 hour period, in which a stone is thrown.

Our longer term response—meaning a year to a year and a half—we must complete this new road. That’s the first item. The second item is to increase the number of soldiers on this road.
