    Showing, once again, that Obama extricated the US as carefully as he promised from Bush, jr’s wars. All combat troops are gone from Iraq and will soon be gone from Afghanistan (we can’t count those heavily armed support troops that must remain in both countries to keep us safe from the goatherds who have been proven irrefutably to be plotting to overrun the US and impose Sharia Law; if the US President says it, under US Law it’s TRVE; if the US President finds someone guilty, their Guilt is automatically inscribed in the Book, and they must be punished and punished severely, and this is simple justice, and all to the good. Thrasymachus is the wise philosopher who guides all US exceptionalism: never has any nation done so much good for the world or had such honest and just and beneficent leaders, as long as one takes the only valid definition of ‘good’ and ‘beneficent’ and ‘just’, which is Thrasymachus’).

    Let’s just cut to the chase, Obama needs to cut the military to spend the money on “stuff.” Of course, that “stuff” is well, important stuff but we’ll never see any benefit from it because it isn’t the right stuff of which Obama has none.

    And THIS is a good example of why “Military Intelligence” is a true oxymoron!

    Let’s also admit that: Fewer Troops=More Drones. And if the Taliban takes over, possibly allout air strikes.

    Not quite. Most reporters went to Afghanistan with the troops. They had a pretty cushy job, since the Government Information Office provided all their articles and photos while they got to stay in a heavily guarded four star hotel.


    Mr Rall went with some friends, and was free to see whatever he wanted to see and write whatever he wanted to write. So he foolishly put his life at risk and had to do his own drawing and writing. And, in the end, he told a story that is 180 degrees from the official story told by all the MSM reporters. And, since whatever the official Government Information Office says, under the authority of the President, is TRVTH (under US Law), law abiding Americans know to neither read nor believe what Mr Rall wrote.

    With 800 military bases around the world, does anyone still doubt MLK’s contention that “the United States is the geatest purveyor of violence in the world today.”?
    Disband the entire US military establishment, and substitute for it a citizens’ militia, chosen by lot like jury duty and rotated regularly.

    The combat troops are rechristened as “support” or “advisors” and “security.” And the thousands of mercenary soldiers are not mentioned at all. ZERO.

    Even oxymorons have meaning. And “intelligence” in this case is really espionage.

    Sounds very like the late, unlamented “Draft”…ask the folks of the Vietnam era how desirable that was. Ask certain “Leaders”, present and past, how influence and $$$ can allow one to avoid such lifestyle-limiting complications.
