Punxsutawney Trump

He stuck up his head and said.... more war...more soldiers.... no end in sight. And for added wisdom tells us he is going to escalate US participation and if he ever sees an end in sight he won't tell us about it because that is how Obama went wrong by warning the other side that we are just about done.

This time there is no pretense about it. We aren't "nation building".....just killing the "enemy". That's at least honest. It's kinda like a real life video game or like Vietnam in a war that is now at 16 years and counting. In Vietnam the idea was to prevent "communism" from spreading without really giving a crap about the corrupt Vietnamese government we were propping up. We saw how that turned out. Now it's to keep Muslim peasants, who have plenty of reasons to hate us and are given new ones every day with drone bombs, from taking up sides against us and the corrupt government we are propping up.

We seem to forget that the US won the American Revolution, not because we were good fighters, we got licked more times than not in open battle. We won because we were a long way from England and all we had to do was hold out to win. The same story played out in Korea and Vietnam with us on the foreign power side. The same story is playing out in Iraq. Why should Afghanistan be any different?

Seems to me like we have forgotten why we ever got sucked into Afghanistan to begin with.....if we really ever knew.
