KABUL, Afghanistan – A new strategic partnership that commits the U.S. to defend Afghanistan militarily for 10 years after most foreign forces leave in 2014 is intended to signal that the U.S. will not tolerate a resurgent al-Qaida or attacks launched by militants from neighboring Pakistan......

The agreement also says the U.S. will help support Afghan economic development, health care programs, education and social initiatives, and stresses that the U.S. remains committed to defending human rights and the right of free speech.

The late Edward Bernays coined the term "public relations" almost 100 years ago. It's just another word for propaganda.

The sociopaths who rule over us have just become extremely slick and clever in their use of manipulating memes. Why do you suppose that "doublethink" is so widespread in supposedly educated adults today?

* "doublethink" is the ability to hold two contradicting opinions in the mind AT THE SAME TIME!

This is so much BULL.

So is Afghanistan the lsat place on earth Al Queda could train terrorists if they so choose?

Please.

In fact if you believe the official government account of 9/11, they did a lot of training right here in the US of A.

This flawed policy of trying to tamp down terrorism wherever it pops up in the world won't work.

What WILL work is to CHANGE THE FOREIGN POLICIES SUCH THAT THEY WON'T BE MOTIVATED TO TERRORIZE US.

But like Jill said: It's really about enriching the war-profiteers and world central bankers.

Makes me ashamed to say my name is associated with these policies since our government does it in all our names - WITH all our money - like it or not.

Much like the UN's concept of a "Peace Force"

How can you have peace with force? "Here ya go people, I'm gonna force my peace on you! Then all will be well with the world."

That is an oxymoron if ever there was one.

lol nice!

Who gave our government this

Who gave our government this authority?

a nod's as good as a wink to a blind bat

I do not know who ever gave

I do not know who ever gave them authority to borrow from Communists, let alone this...

They took it. The correct

They took it. The correct word is they USURPED it. Because we let Truman ignore the constitution on going to war without a declaration of war by the congress. From then on the government was no longer bound by it.

well, someone has 2

Hells Bells! Nothing surprises me anymore but

I had not heard that we were even considering staying there for another decade. It's insanity but the global financial meltdown will surely hit by mid 2013 (probably right before or right about the election this year) so I think it's unlikely we will be able to fund much of anything after that happens...

Don't be fooled..

..this isn't the US helping Afghanistan....this is private enterprise and war profiteers helping themselves.....to YOUR money.

You have to be kidding

Free speech is being demolished here and they claim to be spending money we dont' have and sacrificing our youth to defend it elsewhere in the world?

Healthcare???????????????????????????????? Sorry, I am furious, when will America wake up and take our country back.

"When will America wake up and take our country back?"

When the supposed "men" of this country stop guzzling cheap booze from the corner liquor store and watching other grown men play with a ball on tel-LIE-vision.

when..

the TV tells them to do it.
