If you enjoyed the excitement & tactical brilliance of Bush's Iraq escapade, you'll LOVE Obama's Afghanistan adventure! Robert Fisk discusses why Afghanistan will be a worse disaster for the US than Iraq was. Tom Hayden explains why there aren't enough US troops in the world to subdue Afghanistan, let alone "Af-Pak"! Steve Fournier shows how these bloodbaths based on lies are driving our soldiers--generally good, decent people--insane. Literally.
Fisk's remarks taken from an hour-long speech made available by TUCradio.org. Tom Hayden article from the Huffington Post (Jan. 29, 2009), edited & read aloud by KD.
