And yet we refuse or have the courage to discuss it! Who is funding the Afghan Taliban? You don’t want to know Instead of financing bothsides of a war and losing our own young men and women, I vote we gather all the politicians, all the Washington bureaurats, policy wonks, lobbyist, think tankers, etc. put them all on some far away distant island with no means of getting off, armed them all to the teeth and tell them that whoever wins can rule the island. I think then we could actually get a whole lot more good done here at home by the larger majority of folks in this next truism.
