According to the neocon talking heads in their current disguises,
It must be Obama's fault that the British & Soviets failed to subdue the countryless place called Afghanistan.
And the idea of a time table for exit is somehow tipping our 'secret'
poker hand to the presumed 'enemy'.
Well guess what, after 9 years & at least 1/2 a Trillion dollars i am pretty sure they already know we can't stay there forever.
They can remember the Soviets, even if we are having a PRIDEFUL brain fart.
This fiasco was lost, if it was EVER winnable, which i very highly doubt, a couple of years & a couple of hundred billion dollars into it.
Just because with enough juice you can shock a frog corpse's legs to jump, doesn't mean the frog isn't already long dead.
Put a fork in it, & call it done. Use it as a learning experience, to differentiate between the Pentagon's fantastic sales promotions & their
complete lack of ability or understanding to actually accomplish it.
After 9 years we are actually less far 'ahead' than we were a year into this.
A negative number times any positive number of years & trillions of dollars equals a BIGGER NEGATIVE number.
That is if you aren't a math challenged tea-bag head or neocon criminal nut.
We can either stay there till we bankrupt ourselves like the Soviets did, or we can cut our loses & leave if we haven't already bankrupted these
What IS Obama's fault is buying into the same Pentagon neocon nonsense of subduing that territory in the first place.
He has exposed that he is all surface sophistication & gloss, but doesn't have any real common, skeptical sense.
Subduing Afghanistan is belling the cat.
The teapsychos want to blame Obama for making the cat too big. Call it 'Palin logic' if you will.
Now Boehner wants to reduce Social Security payments to help subsidize the eternal, impossible task of belling that Afghanistan cat.
What IS Obama's & Petraeus & McChrystal's & the Congress's treasonous FAULT, is not stopping this lunacy TODAY.
This is about pride, ego, psychosis, fantasy, insanity, graft & corruption.
DC is populated with egotistical whack jobs & corresponding corporate criminals, all of whom never had to work very hard for money.
Somehow the American people need to alternately bring the sanity, the logic, the common sense and the care & patriotic protection of the United States
and end it.
The American people have to be the adults,
clearly the DC psycho-children are not.
Now they & Panetta want to get us tied up in a new war with Iran.
