THREE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS A DAY on the war in Afganistan!!!!!!!
This whole damn country ought to stop what they are doing tomorrow and march up to Washington until something is done about this fucked up country and it's greedy sons of bitches, and yes I am yelling this!!!!!!

WE NEED TO STABILIZE AFGANISTAN OR WE WON'T HAVE A SECURE SUPPLY OF SAND AND HEROIN! I was yelling too but I'm done now.

Didn't see the program, but just got done reading "Hot, Flat, and Crowded" by Thomas Friedman. A lot about how government could be spending more constructively.

Carol Ross said...

Yeah, I saw 60 minutes, too. The military guy in charge says there's no way we'll really be out of there in 2014... WHAT THE FUCK? WE NEED TO GET OUT OF THAT HELLHOLE NOW. Thanks, needed to do that.

Couldn't agree more! The Russians are laughing their asses off. They took a big licking there and we just never seem to learn - too arrogant I guess.
The Afghanistan government is purported to be corrupt (no kidding!), and that's putting it mildly. We protect their poppy fields. I read one soldier complaining that they'd get in big trouble just stepping on those fields! Bomb those fields and give the farmers money one year to make up for years work and tell them we'll keep bombing those poppies until they grow food. Give all the women a chance to leave and leave the country to the corrupt and the Taliban.

Our country, Canada, was frowned upon (and worse) for not joining in the war against Afghanistan. Our soldiers are there, "peace keeping mission" they call it. It costs way too much money and there are still way too many soldiers (kids really) wounded or killed and our leaders hold their heads high saying "Canada is not at war". Assholes, the bunch of them.
