The relentless beating of a terminally ill whore may be deemed unproductive by those with an insatiable appetite for breaking news- but there are two such hopelessly diseased prostitutes which I shall continue to flog until their putrid odor ceases to torment my weary and oppressed nostrils.
The first, of course, is the Kenyan imposter camped in the Oval Office. Not since the British burned the White House in the summer of 1814 has there been such a vicious affront to that hallowed edifice which symbolizes the US Presidency.
The other abomination is the Afghan War. As a military bugler and cook, I am by no means an expert on modern warfare- but I do have one area of expertise which at least entitles me to defiantly speak out whenever “I damn well please,” as me dear departed father would say.
I can’t remember the first military funeral I presided over with my horn- like you can’t remember the first time you tied your shoes or brushed your teeth. Nor can I begin to tell you how many times I’ve sounded Taps in my long military career. Such repetitive actions tend to blend in our brains as a single experience. I do remember, however, that there was a single day in 1967 when I “officiated” at 25 such funerals at Golden Gate National Cemetery- and I also testify that each military funeral since then has not become easier for me to bear.
But before I again explain why the Afghan War cannot be won, please read Doug Hagmann’s piece in the Canadian Free Press of 27 September 2011.
1. Afghan culture is both tribal and hopelessly corrupt. It will never be capable of unified and righteous governance any more than a cesspool, especially one servicing myriad toilets, can produce potable water.
2. For those who would conquer Afghanistan, it is comprised of perhaps the most unforgiving terrain on Planet Earth- not to mention it is heavily populated with landmines. Many centuries of warfare have proved the Afghan landscape impervious to lasting victory by any foreign aggressor. Ask the Russians. The chronic risks to human health in Afghanistan and our Stinger missiles only facilitated their eventual defeat.
3. The American military-industrial complex of which Dwight David Eisenhower warned us has no genuine interest in winning the Afghan War. There is just too much money to be made.
4. Just as the Soviet Union bankrupted its treasury in Vietnam and Afghanistan, the United States has similarly squandered its national wealth in both countries, much to the satisfaction of the international banking cartel and their corporate affiliates- AKA the New World Order crime syndicate or whatever else you wish to call them. Moreover, these globalist predators who seek unlimited wealth and power are the only ones really winning in Afghanistan. They have no desire to kill such a golden goose.
5. As the Red Chinese added to our woes during the Korean War- and as the Russians provided aid and comfort to our opposition in Vietnam- our enemies in Afghanistan will continue to be reinforced from innumerable hosts of militant Muslims. Moreover, we could kill every last enemy combatant in Afghanistan- and two weeks after we declared victory, a new wave of extremist Islamic roaches would infest the land.
6. Our all-volunteer American military is not a limitless resource. Our collective American military family has been stretched to the breaking point by deployment after deployment since Desert Storm- and it makes no difference whether a military member is regular, national guard or reserve. Moreover, the miasmic stink currently emanating from the White House does little to improve military morale.
7. Even if we could secure lasting victory in Afghanistan, for all practical purposes we would still lose the Afghan War due to its Pyrrhic implications. Our treasury will be bankrupt beyond reasonable hope of redemption. The cumulative effects of failing to properly secure our southern border (due to the Afghan War and other global military commitments) pose an overwhelming threat to our national security. Please understand that our modern technology will never replace the need for “boots on the ground.“ US nation-building (and Obama’s current bent toward nation-demolition) carry a heavy price at home. Most importantly, our human cost has already exceeded acceptable limits. And what price can one place on American life and limb?
8. High treason is rife in both the White House and Congress- and throughout our lamestream media. Yes, the deck is stacked against us even at home- and the trail of treason leads from Kenya to Washington to Kabul.
And yes, whether a dying whore or dead horse, I suppose it’s all the same- but neither silence nor acquiescence is acceptable in defense of liberty.
