It’s time for a Viet Nam style protest. A true get out the masses young and old to finally put a stop to the war in Afghanistan. I’ve been without TV for a while, well a couple of weeks at least, so I use the interwebz to get the fix I need.
I like certain programs so I search out any web content of them to view. I enjoy “60 Minutes” so I went looking and watched the last episode. The one that really made me mad at the government and their efforts with the war was the Lara Logan interview with Amrullah Saleh the former intelligence head in that country.
What made me madder was the fact that our government knows now and has known for quite some time that what Mr. Saleh has said over the years and is saying now is not only true but so accurate in the details that without some action more of our young men and women, will die so as not to upset the relationship this country has with Pakistan. Mr. Saleh was asked by Ms. Logan what should we call Pakistan, an ally or a very good ally, Mr. Saleh without blinking an eye said terrorist nation.
Pakistan according to Mr. Saleh not only harbors al-Queda and Taliban principals but supports their efforts against our troops. He also told our intelligence agencies that the now dead Osama Bin Laden was holed up in a town in Pakistan which although was incorrect it was a town a short 12 kilometers from where he was found.
We provide billions of dollars to Pakistan, they take the money, flip us off and continue to aide and abet those who would dance in the streets when Americans die.
If you haven’t seen the interview go Google/Bing the episode of which I speak. If it doesn’t piss you off I pity you.
Unite brother and sister Americans, get the word out, get your Senators and Representatives to put an end to this madness. Write, cajole, scream, organize do whatever you can.
