    Six years Army, last two 101st Airborne. And I wasn't in some desk job either....I had two MOS's 45K, and 63W, with a designation of small arms specialist from when I was in Germany and ran the arms room in my company, and sat of the Battalion readiness board.


    Yours?

    Frankly, I also just dont give a **** anymore. With little to no true political agenda or guidance from their own gov't and the wishy washy attitude towards the people who are trying to help them, their serious lack of wanting to help themselves. I just dont give a rat's ass. I care about those standing in harm's way and pray for them, but that is the extent of my thoughts and emotions for this quagmire
    Yes, Democracy has to be desired and fought for by the inhabitants, or its just not going to take, I agree.

    I did not claim to know more than Panetta.

    Yes, and like Bush came to power in '00, Romney may come to power in '12, and someone will come to power in '16. It's called "democracy." Perhaps you've heard of it. It was the Greeks who thought of the idea some time ago.

    Karzai's administration is corrupt. It's worth remembering that that's how buisness has been done in Afghanistan for as long as anyone can remember. It's not going to change right away because we think it should. At least he's not a friend of al Qaeda. I realize that's the same thinking that got us into the current mess, and what led to the Islamic Republic of Iran, but I'm not sure what else to do with that.

    The obvious solution then is to go home and quit trying to run someone else's country.
