The bottom line is clear: Our vital interests in Afghanistan are limited and military victory is not the key to achieving them. On the contrary, waging a lengthy counterinsurgency war in Afghanistan may well do more to aid Taliban recruiting than to dismantle the group, help spread conflict further into Pakistan, unify radical groups that might otherwise be quarreling amongst themselves, threaten the long-term health of the U.S. economy, and prevent the U.S. government from turning its full attention to other pressing problems. -- Afghanistan Study Group

Sadly Sue doesn't seem to have the intellect to discern the difference between a radical position held by a few citizens and a radical position that is held by a high ranking government official AND is an official government policy.

The ones making threatening phone calls will be prosecuted if found. But in Iran, such radical positions are rewarded with high government posts and religious elevation.

thewiz does not even have the intellect to learn my name, even after years and years of hanging out on this blog.

He is also blind to his deep racism to those of the Muslim faith.

No.. the Wiz doesnt hate Muslims. He is seperating the goats from the sheep and placing the "evil"(justified through the top 10percent American paid in society) into their box until they conform to Americanism or R dead.

And this is a problem within democracy especially within Americanised cultures where people become ants. At .01 dmg per day the majority of average people will never differenciate between criminal activity very well or have an ability to change much without murderous killing and rapes or genocide of their own victims.
