    Scary, Very Scary

    It's pointless, it always was. Now it's just a matter of time before we have to admit defeat (no way we'll ever admit we were WRONG) and then what? Iran? I get so frustrated over it all. We screwed up, why can't our illiterate, greedy and arrogant president just face it?

    War Is An Anachronism

    Are we still savage beasts fighting over a carcass? Our brains haven't caught up with the reality of the world today. War is ancient and brutal. We are supposedly evolved. When do we stop doing this ancient ritual?

    Me Too!!!

    Meanwhile, the person responsible for attacking us is completely forgotten. And our brave troops don't get any time off for family or much needed rest!

    "As Long As War Is Regarded As Wicked, It Will Always Have Its Fascination.- Oscar Wilde

    The war as it is, makes no sense at all ( maybe only to those who profit from it ) and if there is money and power involved , I dont see the end of it coming any time soon :-( .

    Is This Really Needed....

    No invader in the history of Afghanistan has had any lasting effect.  Russia, Britain, Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great.  The country -- if it is that -- has always been a loose collection of warring tribes.  When the US leaves, it will return to that.  We are wasting our...
