I'm not buying this Afghanistan rhetoricSubmitted by ohionurse on Tue, 03/13/2012 - 00:32
Suddenly so many of the neocons are for "seriously re-thinking" the Afghanistan strategy and hinting at finally pulling out. True, the horrible attack over the weekend is atrocious and almost unspeakable; however, these neocons have never given a flying flip before about what happens to civilians in the countries of these middle east wars. Something is up. They know something and/or suspect something. Are they posturing for the Paul and Independent vote? Are they wanting to pull out all the stops in Afghanistan to gear up for Iran since our resources are strapped? Something is up. What happened to how important it supposedly is/was that we don't allow Afghanistan to become another breeding ground for Al Queada? That argument seems to have fallen by the wayside. As far as I'm concerned this recent reposturing just proves that was never the true reason for staying in Afghanistan all this time in the first place. Maybe if the troops leave, the drug money can flow more freely as so many eyes won't be around and then there will be more money to fund the next war, which appears to be right around the corner.
