News


Something is up.

Hillary is
in Afghanistan
talking to
General McChrystal.

Obama is
in China
and has commented
that a decision
on Afghanistan
is near.

No mention
of Karzai.

There was
another comment
from Washington
that we are
considering
not sending money
to the corrupt
Karzai regime
and sending it instead
to the regional
tribal governments
who really control
the country.

My gut feeling is
that Hillary
is telling
the general
what has been
decided.

Let's hope
that Hillary,
Obama and
McChrystal
all realize
what happened
to President Johnson
when he decided
to radically increase
the force in Viet Nam.

50,000
American boys and girls
were killed
and we still lost
a very unpopular war
and Johnson
literally
stepped down.

Let's hope
they remember
history.

Let's hope
we don't
repeat history.
