WIN WHAT?

General McChrisystall our leading General in Afghanistan says we will need 500,000 boots on the ground and many years to win in Afghanistan.  Win What?  Like Iraq , all kinds of arguments exist on why we have to win this battle, never mind that has never been done by anybody.  But go beyond that and ask if we would win exactly what would our prize be.  Osama and his boys have left the country so getting them is no longer an Afghan problem they are rumoured to be in the high country of Pakistan but nobody knows for sure.  So who in the hell are we fighting now, a small part of the insurgency is Taliban (the guys that were running the country before we got there (and incidentally offered up Osama ) if we would try him in a neutral country, but know we wanted to blow em up.  So we took two month to get our shit together and by that time any self respecting terrorists had split the country.  Kinda like the insurgents are doing now, we load an area where they are active with additional troops and they relocate. The make up of the rest of the insurgents are the Northern Military Alliance who along with other Warlords control the country now as they did before.

So back to win what?  There’s not a lot of natural resources including oil and gas in the country, rumours were it was to protect a proposed pipeline from the Caspian Sea oil fields , but that will never happen. To fight the bad guys , hell we don’t even know who we are fighting.  Gee , maybe it’s to control the drug trade, but no we wouldn’t do that the trade belongs to President Karzai and his friends.  So the latest why we are there came from a reporter who just left Afghanistan who was told by our leaders in the field “WE ARE THERE BECAUSE IT IS THE CROSSROAD TO ALL OF THE MIDDLE EAST”.  If this is the crossroad it doesn’t need even a stop sign.  We do not have access to bring supplies into the country if the insurgents decide to close the Khyber Pass as they have done at times now.  It’s such a great crossroads we had to go begging Russia to allow us to ship through their country.  Don’t know about you but it doesn’t like much of  cross road to me.

I still haven’t answered Win What.  The truth from my vantage point is it beats the shit out of me if we could win (which we can’t) there is nothing there we need.   Oh the die hards say “We are there for the Afghan people especially the women. (yep the same women the Afgan president just ruled can be raped if they don’t put out to their husbands every third day ) If you buy that shit I have a bridge for sale.

SOME FACTS YOU DON’T HERE ABOUT AFGHANISTAN:

THEY PROVIDE OVER 90% OF THE WORLDS OPIUM

97% OF THE OPIUM TRADE IS CONTROLLED BY Karzai  AND HIS BROTHER AND CROONIES.

THE TALIBAN MAKE UP 3% OF THE INSURGENCY

THE LAST BUDGET FOR THE AFGHAN WAR WAS 90% MILITARY 10% HUMANITARIAN AID. (SOME HELP)

SO WITH NUMBERS LIKE ABOVE ARE YOU READY TO SACRIFICE YOUR SON, DAUGHTER, FATHER , BROTHER, SISTER , COUSIN TO THIS STUPID , STUPID CAUSE.

So if I was the president , I would bring McChrystal”s

proposal straight to the people in an open country wide Initiative.    It will take 500,000 troops and many years to win in Afghanistan.  It will obviously take a draft to field that many people.  Yes or No is the option.  If you vote no , do you favor immediate withdrawal.?
