Wow, after so many of our young soldiers and Afghani lives lost, and several hundred billions of dollars spent, we, the US, are at square one with Afghanistan.

Where is the man who architected all this and now my social security check is in jeopardy?

I bet he is relaxing in Houston or Crawford and traveling around in corporate jets.

How about the left wing guy that has kept us there all these years?

Where is he at?

Oh yeah. The White House.

Don’t complain about the guy who used to have the job if the guy who has it now isn’t doing any better…

Ah yes, the Taliban.

Another reminder that murdering innocent women and children is their territory, and they’ll kill as many innocent people as necessary to maintain their turf.

There’s more to Afghanistan’s problems than the Taliban. Its time we see the country for what it is. Afghanistan is a hold over from the 7th century. Its a land stuck in time. From ZERO infrastructure to social clans with archaic rules that makes us all scratch our heads. The leap for Afghan people to a modern nation is just too great. Even if we could help them get over the plague of having no natural resources (except for the stuff needed in batteries the Chinese want), no industry beyond poppy growing, an uneducated population, no communcations grid, etc. , etc…….we STILL would have to bring this society kicking and screaming into modern day respect for life and women’s rights. We are trying to make a silk purse out of a pig’s ear. Its one step forward followed by 3 steps back into the dark ages. War is THEIR WAY OF LIFE. There is nothing else for them to do. Its why the Taliban uses it as a base. Its the wild, wild middle east. Its time to cut bait and stop throwing our treasures down this black hole. Modern man has got to learn some societies will never be modern.
