    Sometimes reality gets lost in the shuffle and explosions and screams of pain.

    There are ‘US Interests’ that need to get at the Lithium in them thar hills, and the gas and oil pipeline still to be built from the Caspian down toward the coast.
    The Empire has to have that country in full control for any of that to happen, din’tcha know?
    Even if it has to be empty of the tribes that happen to be there now… An old old story retold.

    You would think we would have learned something from the USSR’s experience over there. Who knows, if it weren’t for the expense of that debacle, they might not have given up the idea of countering SDI so quickly.

    You’d think EVERYBODY would have learn something from Britain’s experience there a couple of centuries ago – mo-one beats the Afghanis on their own ground. Ever.

    The native Afghanistan army becomes more and more like our own Continental Army at the time of the American Revolution against the Brits.


    The “graveyard of empires” proves to be the graveyard of the New American Empire. Compliments of Dubya Bush, Dick Cheney, Donny Rumsfeld, Dick Perle, Bob Kagen, Elliott Abrams, Paul Wolfowitz, Douggie Feith, Condi Rice, Scooter Libby, Billyboy Kristol, John John Bolton, etc., etc., etc.


    But Jeff Redfern, self-seduced by megalomania, rescues everything with THE RED RASCAL.


    And THE RED RASCAL seduces this doofus-in-the-NAVY-tee into following his own fey imagination off the mental cliff . . . .

    There are still Navy people there. Individual Augmentees are assigned to all sorts of landlocked places. Like AF people driving convoys. Also hospital people go there frequently.

    It may be the graveyard of empires, but the difference is all the other empires(except the USSR0 didn’t have the ultimate solution at their fingertips……….

    I thought we were leaving 30-40,000 behind.

    Certainly not if they get distracted by attacking Iraq at the same time…

    Well, all this time I assumed Jeff thought that the Red Rascal was really real – himself!
