    are still broadcasting from your local right wing talk radio stations.

    and the same chickenhawks- limbaugh hannity beck and the local chickenhawks  are the loudest one's backing up mccrystal and pushing for more troops ASAP and obama is a traitor if he doesn't.

    IMO if the if the many afghanistan iraq protests i went to had been at the local talk radio megastations that did the groundwork for rove and bush they wouldn't have been able to sell them and intimidate/enable those politicians- 'we' wouldn't have gone in.

    ignoring the talk radio monopoly continues to be the biggest political blunder in decades

      all right.  But there are plenty of quieter ones that have much more power.  http://www.dailykos.com/...

        The bigger problem is the majority who don't believe we belong in Afghanistan - but continue make excuses to justify why we are staying.

        Sadly, far too many folks would rather sit on their hands and let young men and women continue to be maimed and killed to preserve a majority than pick up the phone, send an email or write a letter to let their democratically elected leadership know they disapprove of the way things are being handled.

        And THAT is a really big problem.

          I don't know what's the "biggest" problem, just that there are an awful lot of big problems!  ; - )

            Since I can't tell if Johnson is laughing...or preparing to vomit. (I would hope the latter).

            Obama looks none too pleased in the picture with Karzai....but the question remains will he continue to support the corrupt status quo (which actually predates Karzai)or come to the realization that the problem that exists in governance in Afghanistan IS NOT something the US Military or NATO forces can resolve.
