I have to say that a continual war with Afghanistan’s Taliban is a no-win situation. Moving troops from Iraq to Afghan is committing wholesale slaughter. The mountains of this land is rugged. Tanks or heavy equipment is useless. Physical condition of each and every troop has to be at it’s best. What is going to happen here will be worst than Iraq. This is their land and they know them well. Obama better wake up because he is sending young men to the slaughter house. Should this be, he is no different than Bush. STOP!… STOP and THINK before you send our troops to their deaths.

I say talk is the best solution. No one, not even Obama, knows the real truth behind the bombing of the WTC. And no one has tried to talk with these warriors. I say back-off and think Obama before you send those brave young souls to their doom. They have parents and family. YOU BETTER THINK CAREFULLY!

At first they are raising the Mujahedeen when they provided money and arms through Pakistan to them to fight the Soviets and now they are fighting these people which are now called terrorists which they have raised and supported. Ronald Reagan discribed the Mujahedeen as freedom fighters comparable to their ancestors who faught for Americas independence. Now these people are causing problems and have to be defeated in the so called .
Americas is also losing support from Pakistan because it accuses Washington of bringing up the fundamentalists which are now out of controle and they can not handle. Pakistan helped the US back then against the Soviets but by doing so they have now the problems and even the US their ally is now posing a threat to Pakistans sovereignity.
If the US continues this policy then it will have a lot trouble to face in future.

No mystery there, just an excuse for Myra to earn a buck by rehashing the story.

Isn’t it yet obvious? –As you sow shall you reap!

Especially when we are facing the largest melt down in economic history in the USA. Of course, there again the press ignored the obvious truth, with Secretary Snow testifying before Congress in 2003, 2005 and 2006 that the economy would be gutted by Fannie May and Freddie Mac’s shell game with real estate.

Ouch. Let’s add the war in the Congo, that has killed as many people as were predicted in a nuclear war. Or Burma, which is being squeezed by China, Thailand and India in ways that produce genocidal behavior by Burmese leaders. As someone recently said, in today’s journalistic world, only areas easily covered from 5-star hotels will be on the news. Reporters don’t really want to be uncomfortable.
