I have long held the view presented in this excellent, re-blogged article and encapsulated in this quote from it:
“Given post-WWII history and our current state of affairs Western governments and institutions clearly exist as criminal entities which function outside the rule of all recognized morality and law, domestic and international.”

The US "can't leave" Afghanistan (or Iraq for that matter), simply because that would be "self-defeating", in their own words. This post inspired by LA Times op-ed: Yes, the U.S. can leave Afghanistan Photo: President Obama announced this week that he will keep 5,500 U.S. troops in Afghanistan when he leaves office in 2017.

I just found something to talk about, but I think I will let Jim Kunstler do the talking for me. We haven't heard much at all in the news about Ukraine and what those nasty, interfering Russians are doing there, and how NATO is standing ready to save the day, lately, have we? There's a...
