The Bush/Cheney Neocons screwed the Afghanistan people and our troops who were fighting the terrorists who really did attack our country on 9/11 by running away from the ‘war on terror’ hijacking it for neoconservative desires.
The Taliban is regaining strength in Afghanistan. Osama Bin Laden is still free and in charge of Al Qaeda which is gaining strength and free reign in western Pakistan and throughout northern and western Africa. We can’t do anything substantial to curtail their growth because we are bogged down in Iraq while seriously running down the morale and readiness of our military.
Our continuing occupation of Iraq is harming us while allowing Al Qaeda to grow in organization, strength and territory to be able to set up training camps along with a platform to attack us.
So now along the Afghanistan and Pakistan border, where we should have had a strong presence for several years, the training camps are back in business. It was just such a training camp from the same region the 9-11 attacks were planned and launched from.

Police hunting London car bombers
Anti-terrorism police have launched a huge manhunt for the people who planted two car bombs in central London.
General Pervez Musharraf is a military dictator who acquired power by way of a coup. He’s just the latest example of ‘our dictator in the pocket’, at least until it all falls apart. Human Rights in Pakistan are horrendous, they have weapons of ‘mass destruction’, those who would attack us are educated, harbored and trained within their borders, and bin Laden is protected there.
We commit, allow and turn our backs away from many atrocities because of some short term political goal. Our government puts the best spin on these episodes whenever they see the light of day and claim it’s all in an effort to fight terrorism. But are we truly any better when we endorse the same human rights abuses as our foes? (the evil act of torture)
The fight against terrorism is more often a fight for economic influence disguised as a fight for freedom. When we support a country whose government mutilates human rights we hand an ideological victory and propaganda tools for those we call our enemies to use against us. Where they suppress speech we should encourage it. Where they use violence we should react with restraint, kindness, food and medical care. We should never provide military assistance or have close diplomatic ties with any country that violates the civil liberties of its citizens.
Human Rights Watch
If our presence in Iraq is futile or more destructive to them and us than our absence then we must leave.
I don’t want anyone thinking that I’m saying the Bushies weren’t involved in 9-11. At a minimum they were incompetent and desired something to happen to hasten their PNAC desires. I’m inclined to believe they wanted something to happen and they let it regardless of what it might be.
