    Maybe Roland should cover sports in Kabul, like he did in Saigon.

    Just in.
    Kabul, 16 April 2012. The day after massed Taliban attacks on diplomatic enclaves, military strongpoints and other targets across the embattled Afghan capital, NATO spokesmen said confidentially that these attacks prove the weakness and desperation of the Taliban. “We’ve done them so much damage across the countryside”, Brigadier General T Alls Tory said, “that they have no other option but to assault the cities. With every day that passes, they retreat forward and the situation gets better and better.” As he spoke, plaster from explosions rained down from the ceiling.

    Maybe Bush should of completed the job in Afghanistan first- including getting Bin Laden- before diverting manpower and resources to a war based on lies in Iraq.

    But Saddam didn’t embarass his daddy in Afghanistan.

    Time to give Obama another Nobel Peace prize; and throw in the Medicine, Economics, Physics and Chemistry Prizes while they are at it.

    Must be faux noise. Roland knows what his bosses expect to hear from the field. Therefore he now thinks like they do. It’s called self censorship.

    The war in Afghanistan was hardly based on truth either.

    Sod ’em Insane certainly wanted the world to THINK he had
    WMD,s, and would not hesitate to use them [as he used poison gas on the Kurds during his little unpleasantness in
    Iran.]

    I’ll wager we didn’t find them because he sent ‘em all to
    Halfass A. Sod over in Syria, and asked him to keep an eye
    on them “just until this blows over, you understand.” And
    I’ll bet they’re in Syria to this day.

    I’m shocked, spin and self censorship at Fox. Gambling at Ricks?

    But it WAS supported by the rest of the International Community.

    Even Iran extended a hand in solidarity against Al-Qaida.
    But instead of taking a chance on opening a bit of diplomacy Bush slapped thim in the face by calling them a part of the Axis of Evil and they were totally against us again.
    Probably wouldn’t have worked anyway, but he should have TRIED.

    The US fought a high tech war against a low tech enemy in Iraq and did not succeed. Saddam for all his faults/atrocities was a stabilizing force in the region. Iran and Iraq probably would have been at war with each other for much of the last decade.

    You would think we learned something from Vietnam. When you get into a fight between brothers, you end up fighting them all.

    If we had waged war based on where the vast majority of the 9/11 terrorists were based, we would have taken over Saudi Arabia, and gas would probably be a buck a gallon again.
    No, that couldn’t happen. George W. Bush was close friends with the Saudi royal family, not to mention the bin Laden family. Could that be why we never got bin Laden when Bush was in office?
    I clearly remember the headline on the front page of the May 2, 2011 edition of the Philadelphia Daily News when bin Laden was killed: “WE GOT THE BASTARD

    Unbelievable how cheap heroin has become in the USA. What’s the holdup on cheap hashish?
