Afghanistan for Dummies

"I’m going to ask for my money back. I’ve seen this Afghanistan movie before. The first time, Vietnam was in the title. And our protagonist, Gen. Westmoreland — sorry, I mean McChrystal — sees the situation as serious but salvageable. As Westmoreland did with President Lyndon Johnson, McChrystal is preparing to tell President Barack Obama that thousands of more troops are needed to achieve the U.S. objective — whatever that happens to be.

As in Vietnam, uncertainty about objectives and how to measure success persist in Afghanistan."

FLASHBACK - 3 1/2 YEARS AGO: -Did We Not Learn Anything From the Vietnam Experience?

-I Wonder If Some Day I Will Write A Post With The Title: 'Did We NOT Learn Anything From The Afghanistan Experience?"

I'm only posting this because I can't find a way to e-mail you directly

what we need is a national message from every artist, politician, and famous person that is five-fold.

first, we need to be subsidizing crops in proportion to the scientific food pyramid. Right now it's almost exactly an inverse relationship between the scientific food pyramid and the way we subsidize crops. I'm not saying necessarily give corn less money, but just raise the necessary funds to make it proportional.

second, the only way to stop global warming, and a great way for families to make a little extra cash, is to get solar panels, since most states now will pay you back for ALL the energy you add to the grid.

third, the only way to fight terrorism is with public transportation, cuz we get most our oil from Saudi Arabia and in the process give money to wahhabists (wahhabism is a hardline sect of Islam) which is what most the terrorists are.

forth, let every one know 1/3 of all women (that we know of) have been sexually assaulted and women need to take extra special care to make sure that it doesn't happen to them because men rape. that's what they do. not that it's any excuse for it.

and finally, if people want to know what more can be done to better the nation, to visit www.myspace.com/goodpolicysolutions
