Jason Ditz, managing news editor at, discusses how Joe Biden was caught talking out both sides of his mouth on the 2014 Afghanistan withdrawal date; how Gen Petraeus is now claiming progress in small and lesser-known Afghan cities after poor performances in Kandahar and Marjah; polls that show a record percentage of Americans dislike the Afghan War (not that it matters); and why Benjamin Netanyahu is displeased at the (relative) infrequency of US military threats against Iran.

  1. Good man, Ditz.

    General Westmoreland–er, uh, General Petraeus, our commander in Vietnam–er, sorry, Afghanistan–is a four-star neocon hack. President Thieu–er, President Karzai–is a corrupt, ineffectual tool of the Americans.

    Of course Joe ("It's good to be home again") Biden speaks with a forked tongue–he's a career political hack, a lifelong denizen of the District of Corruption. Life in that iniquitous shithole degrades a man's character, now, doesn't it?

    Israel's NuttyYahoo is up to his usual shit, demanding that the U.S. Government pump up the volume of threats against Iran. Well, given that he controls our "Middle East" policy, O-Bomb-a and Hillary Clinton should take note, I suppose. . . .

  2. NO invader of Afghanistan has ever truly 'won' a war in that country which is known throughout History as 'the graveyard of soldiers and of empires' – why would we stupidly expect anything better from our invasion?

  3. 9 scientists, one of them Niels Harrit, UNI of Copenhagen, found nano-thermit in the rubble from WTC. He said on Danish TV 2 news that nano-thermite and not the planes brought down the three (!) towers. Science is science. Or what ? Who have access to nano-thermite ? Hardly OBL. And the Israeli "art students" celebrating the event on a hill outside N.Y. as it happened ?

  4. Excellent post !
