    For decades, our foreign policy seems to have been “let’s find the worst way possible to deal with this, and see if that works.” it’s like releasing rattlesnakes in your house because you saw a mouse in the kitchen. You don’t foresee a problem later on?

    We have a long history of Texans starting or escalating wars. First LBJ with Viet Nam, then Poppy Bush with Gulf War I, fought for……..some reason, and then GWB with Gulf Wars II and III concurrently, fought for…..some reason. We should be glad that Rick Perry isn’t the Republican candidate.

    With as much experience as we’ve had in wars dealing with tribal factions, I can’t figure out why the government can’t figure out how to keep that portion of the female anatomy that keeps getting caught in the wringer out of the wringer.

    Maybe Mitt can make his Time Machine available? You know, the one he used to “retroactively” retire from Bain Capital?

    -
    Perhaps some organizations make a serious amount of money while these wars are going on.
    -
    Not that any of that money would be funnelled back to the ones deciding whether or not to go to war. Or anything.

    Ever hear that idea that Brzezinski represented the ruling families in the world who are trying to bring about a one world government?

    My understanding is that one of the purposes of all this military action in oil-producing regions is to keep them terrorized into leaving the US dollar the reserve currency, so they can’t make deals without it, as that would have a severely negative effect on our economy.

    Afghanistan is the historic tar baby!

    We just can’t understand what NO! means.
    …waiting for Karzai ’s apology.
    Bring them home tomorrow.

    The Maru part of the name refers to the common practice of giving Japanese ships names ending in Maru. A semi-accurate translation would be the Japanese ship that is SNAFU.

    Give Ted enough time and he’ll start claiming the Taliban are “American Puppets” as well. Created, no doubt, during WWII, to fight the Nazis.

    CANUCK: Al Qaeda didn’t form until ‘89. The Soviets withdrew from Afghanistan in ’88.

    ===
    Leon Penetta, the Secretary of Defense, said last Friday that Afghanistan’s President Karzai should thank the Allied Forces that are fighting and dying there, instead of criticizing them. Remember, he works for Obama. Just throwing that out there.

    Check your sources (or those below). Al Qaeda has its origins in the uprising against the Soviet Occupation (which was much earlier). Check Muslim Brotherhood and the Mujahideen.

    The Soviets withdrew from Afghanistan in early 1989.
