Thank you Obama, you will make Bush proud I am sure. The last forever war will go on forever it seems. Instead of ending in 2014, we now find out that we will have troops there till at least 2416 and beyond….thanks to an agreement Richard Engel got his hands on yesterday. To quote from the article linked above from MSNBC:

While many Americans have been led to believe the war in Afghanistan will soon be over, a draft of a key US-Afghan security deal obtained by NBC NEWS shows the United States is prepared to maintain military outposts in Afghanistan for many years to come, and pay to support hundreds of thousands of Afghan security forces.

The wide-ranging document, still unsigned by the United States and Afghanistan, has the potential to commit thousands of American troops to Afghanistan and spend billions of US taxpayer dollars.

The document outlines what appears to be the start of a new, open-ended military commitment in Afghanistan in the name of training and continuing to fight al-Qaeda. The war in Afghanistan doesn’t seem to be ending, but renewed under new, scaled-down US-Afghan terms.

A mouse in a world of shitSo it will not only cost us more American lives, it will cost us billions of American dollars. Billions we don’t have of course.

If this doesn’t bother you, I don’t know what it takes to get to you. We will continue cutting social programs here at home so we can pay for this fucking debacle over there. It’s wrong on ever level to me.

But the GOP will love it, you can bet you ass on that. And people call Obama a liberal…..I can’t stop laughing when I hear that now. It’s never been true and this more than proves it.

  1. The M.I.C. runs the country, no matter what happens in these little elections of ours.

    • M.I.C.? What dat? Oh, yeah. I get it.

      M-I-C…..See everything you do, say, think, so you better obey!
      K–E-Y…..Why? Because we own your fucking asses, that’s why!
      M-O-U-S-E Mickey Mouse! Mickey Mouse! Time to say bye-bye to democracy!

  2. Well, you just ruined my day, but that the hell.

    On a more important note, how are YOU doing, my dear?

    • Hanging in there m’dear. Cancer is currently in remission. The ball n chain is doin’ ok too. The son is living w/us, looking for a job…hope to hell he finds one soon. Love ya dearly Jerry Critter, thank you for asking dear heart. ;-)

      • It is great to hear from you, Dusty. Let’s hope this is the beginning of a great 2014 for you and the family.

  3. Actually, I heard the date 2024 kicked around with regards to this agreement.

    Speaking of dates, anybody remember 1984? Why remember when we’re living through it? This announcement reminds me of the perpetual war of 1984. But that’s just one of numerous similarities between Orwell’s book about a nightmarish future and our Orwellian present. (see drones, spying, indefinite detention, torture, etc)

    Note to self: Buy as much Military Industrial Spy Complex stock as I can afford. It’s “can’t-miss” at any price.
