  1. Heard a commentator who described of war strategy in Iraq and Afghanistan as killing our way to victory.

  2. vkobaya, that IS what war IS…………….killing those who's stuff you are taking…….. Land, oil, way of life, pipeline rights…..

  3. “how Obama is following the game plan of the worst president in recent history” Bush was a pawn and so is Obama… Neither one of them wrote the “game plan”. They are just puppets following orders.

  4. Nobody put a gun to anyones head and told them they HAD to do anything. There was no knife to their or their families throat saying if they didn't march into the white house and lie like the dogs they are while collecting their salary and benefits that they'd soon be swimming with the fishes. They both know/knew full damn well what they were doing and for them to claim or anyone else to defend their actions as "I was just following the game plan" is ludicrous. People were hanged for such a defense at Nuremburg.

  5. Read this brief account of the Roman Empire and its economic policies.

    You will then get a basic understanding of why America is waging endless war with whoever. It is to retain the present status quo at any cost… In the words of Emperor Septimius Severus: “Ignore everyone else.”

  6. <"People were hanged for such a defense at Nuremburg. ">
    Well… That's because they picked the wrong master to bow to. The Japanese that did(and still do) a lot worse things were let free in Tokyo trial on such defense. They(and/or their descendants) are still doing things not mentionable to one of saner mind til current days.

  7. Thank you for the link. I read it with great interest as if contained information I have never before
    seen. My understanding of economic policies has expanded as a result.

  8. Heard a commentator who described of war strategy in Iraq and Afghanistan as killing our way to victory.

    And that worked so well for them in Vietnam, no?

  9. Sadly ironic isn't it. I agree with you. Seems that if you were a scientist or person of interest then you may very well live another day to carry out your diabolical fantasies. Same goes for the greater rats up the ladder.
