Guys, maybe it's just time to take our toys and go home. Or at least quit lying about it.
On a related note, can anyone see any irony in the following statement concerning the latest murder of Afghan civilians, and possibly any relationship to where we are domestically, here in the land of "they hate us 'cuz we're free"?
"US soldier who killed civilians during shooting spree faced no resistance because residents are now used to night raids."
That's called conditioning, folks, and it's going on here in the US, too, although I have to say that there was likely also no resistance because the murders occured at three in the morning.
That single US soldier just created scores more people who now "hate us because we're free".
Were someone to murder my family or friends, I'd hate them because they...killed my family. I would not stop until that blood debt was repaid or I was killed, were I in those shoes.
Is the US to blame as a nation for what happened? Are all US soldiers to blame for one man's actions?
I can say this for sure... Keeping our folks over there in the situation they are in makes events like this more and more likely to happen, for a variety of reasons. People are people, and war is war.
This Afghanistan thing?
It's become a perversion that drains our nation's youth, changes them irrevocably, harms the "recipients" of US "benevolence", and drains our broke nation's treasury, leading to further debt enslavement of us and future generations.
Time to pack it up and come home, boys.
