    Re: America’s Dumbest War, Ever

    I am hating the Liberal talk hosts for this very reason.

    With the exception of Norman Goldman, the liberal hosts are totally censoring themselves with regard to Af-Pak/Libya/Syria. Its a disgrace when they spend hours on Bachman, Herman Cain or indocrinating to score cheap political points on:

    abortion, greenhouse gases, the tea party, race, religion, polling, gun control, the election horse race, the long gone Bush Admin. etc., and being partisan/govmnt lackeys like on MSNBC, the hired guns for the Democrat Party, going way out of their way to provide cover for this failure of leadership, the tabloid TV provides propaganda for Washington DC politicians, complete with government produced news segments on public television and elsewhere.

    At Norman Goldman.com you can read "the 14 Points of Fascism," but one he missed was that one sign of fascism or a dictatorship is that the government controls all the mass communications channels.

    I find that when someone says "why isn't the liberal media reporting on X!??" it is almost invariably one of two things:

    1) X is complete horse**** and only conspiracy nuts are talking about it.
    2) Literally every media organization is, in fact, talking about X.

    America's dumbest war ever is the war on obesity. Look at old pictures and see how many Type II diabetes candidates you see in them v. how many supermodels you see in them.

    America's dumbest war ever is the right wing war on FDR and the New Deal.

    That's been a failure domestically and internationally. We never got a sniff of the MDGoals. We poured money on dictators thinking that at least something good would happen but it often caused more bad than good despite any intentions. Even food aid has been corrupted and recurves risk and problems created domestically.

    Development neo-exodus; own 'poverty' (lack of human rights) so we can fix it.

    You appear to not have read the letter in the OP.

    Obama has buried our military's head in the sand and hung their asses out to dry. Quite similar to what happened in Vietnam.
