No Easy Answers

UPDATE IV: Still unsure what to do in Afghanistan, then consider some a historical lesson courtesy of the former Soviet Union. Read The New York Times, Transcripts of Defeat.

Still unsure, then think Napoleon and our founding fathers who were opposed to "ceaseless and senseless overseas wars. Wars for territory. Wars for defense. Wars for revenge. Wars because one religion was better than another."

UPDATE III: To Republi-cons, manliness is "quickly invad[ing] a country on the basis of half-baked intelligence." Read the Washington Post, Think before surging.

Tell me, who dithered through five draft deferments to void duty in Vietnam?

UPDATE II: After 7 years of 'dithering' and uncertainty on Afghanistan, Republi-cons are now armchair hypocrites. Read the Washington Post, Armchair Quarterbacks.

Republi-cons have no shame, and very short memories.

Remember Santayana's Law of Repetitive Consequences, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Then read the Washington Post, The Anguish of Decision.
