Afghanistan

Can you tell me why we’re in Afghanistan? Are we really looking for Bin Ladin? The same old tired answers. The Taliban, Bin Ladin, what? Certainly it’s not that we’re opposed to sharia law as we’re allowing it to infiltrate our culture. Why do we even have such an army? Someone on the radio the other day said it was mandated by the Constitution to protect us. I can’t find that crap anywhere in our Constitution.

The real answer to our middle east problems is to get the heck out. These people have been at war for thousands of years and maybe that’s why the world thinks we’re arrogant. Because we think we’re going to go in there and end all this.

The first thing I always hear when I suggest this is, “What about Isreal?”. My friends let me tell you about Isreal. It’s not Isreal that needs protecting from us, they can take care of themselves. If anything we restrict them from having their way in the middle east. Isreal is a military powerhouse not to be triffled with that would make quick work of any invading force if not for our meddling. I said ANY invading force.

Why then are we in the middle east? This question has always puzzled me since I was very young and first found out what was going on there. As long as I can remember we have had a military presence there. The obvious answer is oil but that don’t seem to be adding up. We go in there and tear up and spend billions of dollars and all we get is higher gas prices. No, oil doesn’t make sence either.

How about control, are we trying to control some thing or some one? I don’t really see that happening. Everytime we go in there we seem to lose control. No, I think that if you’ll think about it you’ll find that the only thing happening here is a redistribution of wealth.

WHAT? Well think about it.

We have made the Saudi’s very wealthy. Every street urchin there has pockets full of American dollars. Oil money. As well as Viet Nam, Korea, Japan. Need I continue? WTF? Don’t listen to Hanoi Jane and her ilk on this. Those people are so much better off than they were that it makes me sick. Go there. See for yourself. Ask them. They will tell you.

The media goes in and finds all the hard luck stories to tear at your heart but the real story is that we brought these countries out of the middle ages and into the present. Has anyone been paying attention? The best thing that can happen to these third world holes is for us to drag our big, dumb, military butts in there and stimulate the heck out of their economy.

REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH! It has been going on right under your nose for your entire life and you didn’t even realize it.
