John Glaser, Assistant Editor at Antiwar.com, discusses the profound disrespect shown by US Marines toward dead Afghans and the ho-hum response of Americans; yet another pending military investigation that will drag on until the scandal is forgotten, at which point all parties will be exonerated (except the occasional low-ranking soldier); how the latest National Intelligence Estimate on Afghanistan contradicts 10+ years of “progress” reports; and why the Obama administration ignores “insurgent math” and maintains the status quo, knowing full well Afghanistan policy is counterproductive.

John Glaser is Assistant Editor at Antiwar.com. He is a former intern at The American Conservative magazine and CATO Institute.

  1. Taliban Party — Political class war

    25% Most wealthy — Ruling Party
    25% Educated middle-class — Opposition Party
    50% Uneducated laboring-class — Taliban Party

    City people are the 25% most wealthy, out on the farms and high on the mountains dwell the uneducated laboring class and their Taliban heroes, and in-between the landlords and the slaves we have the educated middle-class, those we laboring men call the stuck-up slave-driver class.

    Now not withstanding the third world country of Afghanistan being worlds apart from Empire USA, they have precisely the identical political system. For the voting majority, in our take all you can take global society, this is the 51% most educated in wealthy. A most self-evident fact, as they always vote to enslave and impoverish the laboring-class lower half of society. Comes now the perfect solution —

  2. MORAL DEMOCRACY
    The 25% most wealthy must NOT be allowed to vote or have any involvement in politics. As this would give the impoverished lower half of society 50% of the vote, half the control, and prevent the 51% most wealthy from having a monopoly on government. Also it would stop the rich ruling class from hoarding 80% of the wealth.

  3. The Marines' act was cowardly and immature–like the American foreign policy that brought them to Afghanistan.

  4. 'Hatred is growing rapidly': Afghan soldiers killing more of their US allies

    Excerpt:

    “Lethal altercations are clearly not rare or isolated; they reflect a rapidly growing systemic homicide threat (a magnitude of which may be unprecedented between ‘allies’ in modern military history),” it said. Official NATO pronouncements to the contrary “seem disingenuous, if not profoundly intellectually dishonest,” said the report, and it played down the role of Taliban infiltrators in the killings.
