Re: COIN, or folding money?

No, instead you pretend that the history of the United States' meddlesome involvement in the various governments of the world is NOT the cause of our problems. You keep wanting to treat the symptoms...

Re: I agree with Wright on Afghanistan

well on these forums, I would define all the rah-rah for continued war-making in the middle east (and as I suspect, anywhere else) as neo-con.

I agree with Wright on Afghanistan

Re: COIN, or folding money?

Re: COIN, or folding money?

Re: COIN, or folding money?

no I didn't overlook the fact the Taliban didn't turn them over.... you think it was possible for them to turn Bin Laden et al in?

Re: COIN, or folding money?

Howabout letting the people of Afghanistan decide whether they want the Taliban in power? The Taliban didn't attack us on Sept 11... Saudis living in Afghanistan instructed Saudis living in the US...

Re: The Afghanistan Fog (Robert Wright & Ann Marlowe)

Re: The Afghanistan Fog (Robert Wright & Ann Marlowe)

Jyminee.... I couldn't agree with you more.
