17,000 more Americans go to Afghanistan

Well the “hype and change”, man has committed another 17,000 American troops to Afghanistan and “Uncle Sam” is running around asking other Nato member states to commit more soldiers. Now, it is not that they have just to commit more soldiers but they “hope, hype” man wants them in those parts of the country where they can kill and be killed and we are being told that they are desperately needed “to turn the fight around against the insurgency.”(1) They are, of course, irresponsible nutters the lot of them and with the Kyrgyztan parliament today voting by 78 votes to one to close the American base at Manas,(2) how, Mr. “Hype” are you going to supply the soldiers that are already there? Europeans steer clear of this man …. oops too late they have already been stung.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
