    We are in a bad situation in Afghanistan, and no amount of intelligence, hard work, or bravery can make it right.
    There is only one right way to go.......Out! Now!

    How do you deal with the  insanity of fighting on, after 11 years, with conditions getting so much worse, a US soldier dying each day, and  borrowing 2 billion a week?

    Paying for 68,000 troops and over 113,000 private contractors, as our country implodes....

    There is no win, there is no "smart diplomacy", there is only leaving, and leaving now.

      have any skin in the game, don't have loved ones or know anyone serving in Afghanistan.  And the media has made it out of sight out of mind. Hell botched referee calls, and Big Bird now matters more than the fact we got people getting killed in a war that no longer has justification. And even on the "progressive" blogs anyone who brings up the war and the effects on all who are suffering(including the civilians) are scorned as purity trolls calling for rainbow unicorns.
      This is sad state of this country.

        I was talking with a friend about the insanity of those, our military brass and the WH, who set policy, and the war enablers in congress, who never come up short for funding wars, and saying I just can not understand the silence of citizens, the media, those in congress, that the USA is starting its 12 year of war.

        He said, I try not to worry about something I have no control over.

        He was not alive during the Vietnam war, was against the Iraq war though never marched in the streets to protest it like many of us.

        And yes, This is the sad state of this country.
