Why is nobody talking about our current war? We are talking about doubling troops there, we are experiencing high casualty rates. Yet no media outlets are bashing Obama. Where is Cindy Sheehan, why is she not protesting against Obama? Why is the left not focusing on this.
When Bush was in office all we heard every night was the total body count and how we are losing the war. Im a little disgusted at how they treat this president. Im worried that Obama will send more troops in a we might have another Vietnam, which they will blame on Bush.
Im just ranting. But still these people do not make any sense.[/quote]
"Brzezinski himself has recognized how his gratuitous machinations in Afghanistan in 1978-79 produced the responses of al Qaeda and jihadi terrorism. Asked in 1998 whether he regretted his adventurism, Brzezinski replied:
“Regret what? The secret operation was an excellent idea. It drew the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? On the day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter, saying, in essence: ‘We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam War.’”
Nouvel Observateur: “And neither do you regret having supported Islamic fundamentalism, which has given arms and advice to future terrorists?”
Brzezinski: “What is more important in world history? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some agitated Muslims or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the Cold War?”
When he was asked whether Islamic fundamentalism represented a world menace, Brzezinski replied, “Nonsense!”
In 1809, the British Empire sent an army of 12,000 into what is now Afghanistan. It was a disaster. What they hoped to accomplish is still a mystery to me, as is why WE are sending anyone there.
