The New War

Well if you thought for one second that one of President Obama's goals was to descalate the two wars our country is involved in,well I have some good news and some bad news.
The good news is the real reason has now been reveled for being in AFGHANISTAN,VAST RICHES OF MINERALS HAS BEEN FOUND IN THIS WAR TORN COUNTRY.
The bad news is we will now have our military in that country for years to come.
Nothing good for the Afghan will come of this discovery,every crook on this side of chilly Jordan will be in that country,this afternoon!

You're right - the Afghans are in for a world of trouble from those riches. Now the United States has even more reason to "care" about "helping" the Afghans, the way the U.S. has "helped" oil-rich countries. And much the same way it has "helped" Latin American countries that just happened to be important to U.S.-owned companies like United Fruit and Coca-Cola. All that "help" will be, if not the death of Afghans, at least a great bane to their existence.

Since World War Two the U.S. has kept a military presence in every place its armies have fought a war, from Japan to Europe to Vietnam.

So you're right, the U.S. will be in both Iraq and Afghanistan for at least the next 100 years.

Stimpson:Thank you for stopping by,long time no hear from,your description of the role of the U.S.Military and Corporations in mineral rich counties is spot on.
Thanks for sharing your wisdom and don't be a stranger to these pages.
Val:I'm so sick of our young men and women lives being used for the profit of these multi-national corporations.
I'm sick of the lies told to the American people that they are fighting and dying for freedom of the Afghan people!
