“Stupid is, as stupid does...”

My nephew is in the suck (Afganistan) right now...Sent this to him so he can get a good laugh...

He needs this...

What’s interesting is the activity in the region will now be on the increase because the “Opium (Poppy)” harvesting is pretty much wrapping up and the money those farmers get they use, or will be used to buy more “munitions” for their fight against us...

I don’t know what the President has been smoking, but this conflict is FARRRRR from over...

But hey, if the concensus is to cut-bait and let the others fish...Then lets do a mass exodus and let them kill each other...

I think a plan of containment, sanctions, of nothing in or out (to the best of our abilities and technologies) would be better...

When we’ve helped them to clean their own house up to a point, and the folks we are mingling with (their security and armed forces ) have infiltrators waiting for their chance to shoot our folks in the back...That tells me its over...We did what we could and they are not living up to the bargain...

Screw ‘em all...

Those opium poppys and their farmers...We need to get in there with A-10s and/or B-1s...maybe bring some F-111’s out of mothballs and lay some napalm onto those crops! Screw those farmers. If we can go after moonshiners here in the states then why not burn those bastards out of business in the Middle East and Mexico?

““Opium (Poppy)” harvesting”

The harvest is over where I'm at.

There is no victory on the war on terror.

Just like there is no victory over crime. It's an ongoing war.

The monies acquired from poppies will be spent on death, however, we are rather good at finding the cache's of death.

Side note: Not as many of the locals are that thrilled with the Taliban, which is why they need death squads to coerce some level of cooperation from the local population. Percentage wise only a few are dirtbags.
