Ray Traudt : Tales of War in a Kabul Restaurant China has simply purchased what we wanted to grab in Afghanistan, the things that Cheney was negotiating for with the Taliban c. 2000. China now owns the critical rare earth metals mined there, and the planned NG pipelines from Central Asia have been rerouted directly to China instead of through Afghanistan. We bring less freedomandliberty than destruction and fear and hatred, creating enemies. 27 seconds ago - View -
Mark Miller : Why Would They Kill Children? Tales in a Kabul Restaurant Don't let the media fool you. The war in Afghanistan is not over. Obama sent an additional 50,000 troops there a couple years ago. There are now more than 100,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan. This story choked me up. "Four years ago, he tried to bring first aid as an early responder to a wedding party attacked by NATO forces. Only he couldn’t, because there were no survivors. 54 people were killed, all of them (except for the bridegroom) women and children. 'It was like hell,' said Dr. Jamaludeen. 'I saw little shoes, covered with blood, along with pieces of clothing and musical instruments. It was very, very terrible to me. The NATO soldiers knew these people were not a threat.'” http://rain.org.za/why-would-they-kill-children-tales-in-a-kabul-restaurant/ 1 minute ago - View -
Christopher Harris : Timeline Photos Conservative Logic 101 WOW!!! Yeah, because, pushing paper, talking on the phone, sending emails, and sitting in a climate controlled office during staff meetings is totally comparable to being in combat out in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Linda Stoops : White House Leaks Threaten Lives President Obama’s team “put a target” on the backs of the Navy SEALs who killed Osama bin Laden, says Karen Vaughn in this 2012 video that suggests her son died three months later as a result of White House national security leaks.
“How dare they?” Mrs. Vaughn asks. “They put a target on my son’s back and even on my back. But a little over 90 days later, my son was dead.” Aaron Vaughn and 21 other Navy SEALs, “most of whom belonged to Team 6, the unit whose members were involved in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden,” died in Afghanistan when a helicopter he was riding on was shot down.
The video, released by the conservative Veterans for a Strong America, shows Joe Biden talking about the raid during a public event and Defense Secretary Robert Gates complaining that an agreement to keep the raid details secret “fell apart” as the result of such comments.
“Aaron called me,” Mrs. Vaughn says, referring to her son, Special Operations Chief Aaron Vaughn, who was killed on August 6, 2011. “He said, ‘Mom, you need to wipe your social media clean. Get rid of everything, any reference to me or my buddies, because there is chatter and all of our lives are possibly in danger, including yours.’” The national security leaks from the Obama White House threaten American lives and those of our allies. The parents of fallen Navy SEAL Aaron Vaughn, Billy a... Watch the video: http://youtu.be/I8jbhrQs-64 2 minutes ago - View -

Imperfect Parents : JEOPARDY QUESTION 20 (Don't forget to start answer with who is, what is, etc)
The material cost of this war was greater than all other wars put together
Greg Parsons : Ok omfg the Crime on the British streets today was foul.
I agree this crime was beyond atrocious. It is sick and ugly and wrong to the highest decree. I equally respect your opinions and hear the points being screamed about mixing of race. I just cannot agree that race should not mix. Sorry my friends but my children go to school, mix and love others from every possible race denomination and they love them all. There is good and bad in every race and every belief. Equally and worse crimes have been committed by westerners in their countries so, what's the difference. Are people suggesting here that I turn my children against their friends or just tell them to watch their backs? I don't want to live in that kind of world.
The Australian thugs driving their cars at 190km down suburban streets are more a threat to my kids lives than the muslin living next door and by far out number them.
Again I agree hideous, sickening crime but committed by less than .000000000001 % of the race. Extremists exist in the Christian world too. 10 minutes ago - View -

Nixon (Cambodia, Laos, Watergate) Reagan/Bush (Iran-Contra, Afghanistan ~material & CIA aid to 'Mujihadeen Freedom Fighters, including OBL~ anti-Sandinista campaign in Nicaragua) Bush I/Quayle (Manuel Noriega & 1st Gulf War) Bush II/Cheney (way to numerous to enumerate, let me 'borrow' what a journalist said: one long continuous eight year scandal) All the Right Wing Heroes would be convicted War Criminals.

Greg Clever : Bazra Parsons - " very much. however; i believe this is where 'law' needs to be real (and it has seldom been so). if laws applied equally to the wealthy 'elite' as they do the poor 'useless eaters' there would be no problems. However, since 'law' has become nothing more than a rubber stamp for the 'elite' and a taser to the poor in most countries, 'law' has fallen into disrepute. IF states treated TREASON seriously, as was once the case, and such perpetrators were punished to the full extent of the law things could be different. But while secret societies and social engineers rule behind the scenes and a corrupt, compromised media plays daily scripts to the masses sometimes it seems nations and people need to be shocked into epiphanies. Just look at what has happened in britain overnight, Hayden. a 'terrorist act' has taken the focus of david cameron's corrupt national government. Mossad has been implicated in such monstrous 'events' as 9/11, 7/7 (london subway attacks), Madrid train bombings and Mumbai ... and that's just a few off the top of my head. their motto/slogan is "By deception ye shall make war' and that has been precisely their gambit. iraq, afghanistan, etc. that's why 'our' soul diers are in those countries, making war for 'israel' and guarding poppies for the true drug kingpins.

Tom Murda Mcdonald : As we get closer to memorial day, I get hit more and more by guilt, every year it's the same. I get an overwhelming feeling of guilt that I never did enough. The guilt of not being in Afghanistan now and never getting the opportunity to go after Iraq, the feeling of "I wish it was me and not that guy, he had a wife and kids...", the feeling that I can't do enough to support my brothers still fighting while I enjoy fast food and my own personal toilet...it's hard not to get sad and dwell in self loathing, but I owe it to the surviving families of our lost brothers to bite my lip, keep mowing and do what I can to make sure they never have to worry about being forgotten. It's Memorial Week, help honor our fallen. 15 minutes ago - View -
