State Department official: Africa Operation could take "several years"

We have got to find a way to stop our out of control MIC! No one I know is in favor of our aggressive foreign policy and yet our government claims "The American People" approve of us helping every nation's citizens that get into a pissing contest with their ruler. How do we stop the gears of war from continuing to grid away the lives of our young people and destroying our freedoms here at home? Our children and grandchildren are going to pay a heavy price for the death and destruction that we have rained down on 1/2 the world. With Bernanke printing up funny money ad nauseum, there appears to be no way to stop the funding of all these damn wars! The Federal Reserve needs to vaporize into dust particles.

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) - The French-led military intervention in Mali could take years, a U.S. official warned on Monday.

A State Department official for Africa said the U.S. would like to see an African-led, -owned and -directed operation like the one that successfully pushed militants out of Somalia's capital after several years of warfare. But Don Yamamoto warned that intervention could take years before finding success.

"This is only the first phase. It is going to take time. I think people should not be into the illusion that it is going to be quick," said Yamamoto, the principal deputy assistant secretary of state for African affairs.

"It is going to take a long time and time means that it could take several years. And you got do it right," Yamamoto told The Associated
Press on the sidelines of the African Union summit in Ethiopia.

I'm pretty sure the leaders of those countries were supporting Gaddafi and his plot to create a new gold-backed currency for Northern Africa. Can you imagine what the Federal Reserve thought about such an idea?

The day that you think our government gives a $h!t about the citizens of those countries is the day you should call yourself a fool.

So I guess to answer your question...

"How do we stop the gears of war from continuing to grid away the lives of our young people and destroying our freedoms here at home?"

Stop the Federal Reserve.
