John Mueller in a comment that appeared in the NATION points out more than few inconvenient truths for American military who want to continue to devastate Afghanistan.

“. . .the “safe haven” myth is like the “dominance” myth repeatedly promulgated by promoters of the war in Iraq. That one held that if Saddam Hussein could just lay his hands on a chemical bomb or two, or maybe on fancier “weapons of mass destruction,” he would be able to “dominate” the Middle East. Rarely considered were the inconvenient facts that the impoverished, hated and pathetic dictator controlled only a shard of his country and that he so distrusted his army (which he would presumably need to “dominate”) that he issued it little ammunition and wouldn’t allow it to enter Baghdad with heavy equipment. . .”  SOURCE

HOW MANY TIMES DO THE LEADERS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HAVE TO GO AGAINST THE WISHES OF THE MAJORITY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE* AND CONTINUE TO WAGE USELESS DESTRUCTIVE WARS SO THE MILITARY, RIGHT-WING NEOCONS WITH THEIR FANTASIES OF WORLD DOMINANCE, AND MUNITIONS MANUFACTURERS GET TO HAVE THEIR WET DREAMS OF POWER?

“The answer my friend is blowing in the wind.  . . .  When will they ever learn?”

*IN 2006 WE ELECTED A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS TO BRING OUR TROOPS HOME AT THE END OF 2008.  And look at what they have NOT done.  In 2008 we elected a democratic majority to the SENATE AND THE HOUSE and a so-called Democratic President whose big rhetoric was that he spoke out against the Iraq war.

and what have they done since taking office almost a year ago now to bring out troops home now and end the war in the Middle EAST.

WHAT THE HELL KIND OF GOVERNMENT DO WE REALLY HAVE?  IT IS LOOKING AT LOT LESS LIKE A DEMOCRATIC ONE BY THE DAY!
