    Interesting piece from the British press.

    Independent Online Edition > Asia

    I'd say the conspiracy theorists of the Queen/Rothschild Bank/East India Company will have a field day with the 2nd half of this article. LOL!

    You gotta start what you finish. Afghanistan will be a failed state if we pull out. And that will be a big problem on us in later years.

    Wars in Modern America are no longer won, they just continue on forever in some capacity. Even as a veteran, I could only speculate on what possibly could be an honest objective in Afghansitan or Iraq.

    Some people believe we are guarding the poppy fields (the only source of revenue for the region) from the gangsta Taliban and Isis.

    It is thought that Pat Tillman took "friendly fire" because he was about to speak out on the issue. The cat's out of the bag now.

    RIP Pat Tillman.

    Nothing "creative" or "funny" about it.
    Things happened in the jungle of Vietnam that aren't talked about or publicly known but since you all are experts on the subject I'll back off.

    I was under the impression that Afghanistan is s all about Pakistan and the nuclear weapons there.

    Do you know any that cry about not being recognized and demand that strangers on the internet thank them?

    Actually he's just saying he served as a rebuttal to being told he didn't. DIDO is twisting words again.
