Read fascinating article in Newsweek about the war in Afghanistan. It is now on the verge of being the longest war the US ever fought. Interviews with Taliban fighters about the history of the war show clearly the US is on the verge of losing big time. So how is Obama going to exist? The British and Russians got their asses kicked in....now it's America's turn.

After the Russians left the Taliban took over in 1996 with Pakistani help during a bitter civil war. By 2001 they were on the verge of taking over the whole country and Osama Bin-Laden fucked everything up for the Taliban by triggering an American invasion and the collapse of the Taliban government.

The US was on the verge of capturing Bin Laden, but he escaped. The Taliban and Al Qaeda were totally routed. Then the Bush administration fucked up and invaded Iraq. Giving the Taliban the breather they needed.

It's pretty clear that the Taliban are in no mood to help Al Qaeda again. Should the Taliban win. 9/11 is still fresh in their memory. But the Taliban is being helped by a corrupt puppet government in Kabul that is now unpopular and useless as hell and massive civilian casulties due to US fire power.

Drug money and big bucks from the oil countries are going into Taliban coffers and Pakistan is helping the Taliban secretly. With allies like these who needs enemies?

So will Obama pour more good money after bad? Waste more US troops?

The game is OVER.

Gambler for President!!!
I couldn't have said it better myself. I hope comes to his senses quickly. Does anyone feel like I do? There is something very wrong with our country right now. Probably not something you would expect coming from me. To be honest, I see the world going to hell in a hand cart and wonder if there is anything can stop it. *sigh*

Love based Peace
Who stopped the germans in the last endgame? Then who brought thier great minds home to plot a more encompassing strategy? This wasn't voted on, this wasn't democratically decided. This was money exchanging hands and deciding the fate of it's serfs.

Though the Taliban may have single-handedly committed 9/11, those in power here were documentably aware of thier intentions, they couldn't pass P-NAC without public support, interventionalism and impearialism create capital, so they allowed, nay, assisted in the tragedies so that they would get funds and support.

We are run by agencies which are not what we think they are. The government of america is a subsidiary (?) of the intentions built into those agencies which lay with and in her and all western/white (no racist intentions) nations.

I've said too much already, but i tell you something more.

Our technology cannot compare, the secrets we cant know about technology here are childs play to those of Japan and China. If we don't lead the way for love based peace, not capital based stability, but real peace based on understanding and love, we might not make it another hundred years.

Welcome to the final frontier.

No....
The Taliban had no clue about 9/11. They were ignorant peasants getting bribes from Osama Bin Laden. Had they known what was coming they would have given him the boot...
