Death...the last new experience you will ever have
02:23 PM on 03/25/2013
We'll know when Afghanistan is anything but a war zone in spite of billions of our dollars and American lives expended there for way too long when someone from the US makes an announcement they are going to go there. Does anyone remember why we went there? Didn't we accomplish that? So why is the Obama Administration still paying the corrupt Drug Warlord infest Govt millions of dollars that they are squirreling away in their personal accounts?

Conversation Peace: Boycott Shell, Halt Oil War.
02:14 PM on 03/25/2013
'But Kerry told a joint news conference that "I am confident (Karzai) does not believe the U.S. has any interest except to see the Taliban come to the table to make peace."'

Wrong. Peace is the way to come to the table and make good agreements. Signing a secret "memorandum of understanding" within a cloud of paranoia is not the best way to come to the table and make a good agreement.

Kerry proposed a Middle-East summit while running for president in 2004. Let's have one now. A summit where truths like Exxon and Shell and et al's new Iraq oil lands are put in the forefront as to what the Oil Crusade War/Terror:Extremism War is all about. The oil can be had, and local sovereignty respected, without all the brutal sadistic and economically wasteful behavior.

Peace be with you...peace be with US all.

Oil needs to be removed from the conversation to have peace. Green power needs to be built for all the world. Oil fields need to be destroyed and drilling equipment must be destroyed so we can have a future.

With statements like that no wonder our country is such a mess.
03:42 PM on 03/25/2013
Well, that makes no sense. There's no oil in Afghanistan.

The United States has quietly unblocked almost $500 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority which had been frozen by Congress for months, a top US official said Friday. So we are borrowing more money from China to help our enemies.
Strange that we can send billions of our taxpayers dollars to Muslim countries during these hard times, isn't it? What the hell is going on that we are forced to sacrifice to our enemies?

'Kerry Arrives In Afghanistan On Unannounced Visit'

Please tell me that he's going to stay there.
03:42 PM on 03/25/2013
Why? He's doing a good job so far.

If they made a new Munsters movie, he is a dead ringer for Herman.

If they make a Karzai flick Ben Kingsley plays him.

last sentence---another $39 million in aid when White House tours are shut down and 90% of Afgans hate us. NO MORE AID TO COUNTRIES THAT HATE US.

We need to get out now and also get out of the very foolish "defense pact" that Obama entered into with the corrupt Karzai government which ties us down until 2024 with a min. amount of aid at no less than $4 billion a year.

Afgan was Obama's "good war". It is not a 'good war' now with Afgan soldiers and police shooting our soldiers like in target practice. Where did Code Pink go? Do they only protest when a Repub is in office? We have had 72% more casualties under Obama in far less time.

After Secretary Kerry handed-out $250M to the newest dictator in Egypt, I had hoped he would have left our checkbook in his other pants. But happily for the Afghans, there's another $39M coming their way.

No doubt our kids going without Head Start and elders without Meals on Wheels are understanding of our country's priorities.

talk to Congress.. The executive can't just swap money around. They have to spend it for the purpose for which it was appropriated,
02:24 PM on 03/25/2013
Of course they "have to."  Otherwise, it would be irresponsible.

That's how you know not only did we lose the Afghan 'war' but we don't even trust the government we installed there.

Kerry: what, you didn't get my text message announcing my official visit? Damn, AT&T! Sorry, Mr. President.

I wouldn't be surprised if Kerry walked in on Karzai collaborating with the Taliban. We all know that making peace with them will allow them to take over again. There is no use fighting wars in the Middle East. We leave and another extremist islamic group just rises again. Let them fight their own wars which we could do if we found another source for oil.

This is how these surprise visits work:
"Surprise!!!! I was in the neighborhood, flying over Sri Lanka I said hey why not, let's go have a beer with Karzai and see what he is up to these days, probably duking it out without those Talibans rascals, am I right, am I right?  'SUP!!! Hey, put it there, high five!  Are you surprised to see me or what?  So, you got any cold ones in this establishment?"

Just one more Republican screw-up that we're still having to clean up. Yeah, vote that party back into power real soon.
