Matthew Hoh's letter indicating US mission in Iraq is not a moral mission.

Brother of Afghan Leader Is Said to Be on C.I.A. Payroll
By DEXTER FILKINS, MARK MAZZETTI and JAMES RISEN
Ahmed Wali Karzai, the brother of President Hamid Karzai
and a suspected player in the opium trade, has gotten
payments from the C.I.A. for eight years, American
officials said.

2.  once again the west applies their values to Islam, they can do anything to drive out an invader

from their land, once you kill a muslim on their land it ratchets that up even worse. there are some dictates from Allah about it, but the 'Sunnah', the Book of what the Prophet said, has a lot to say about it. and contains all we need to know about why we should GET OUT NOW.

DEFINATION: MORAL
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/moral1 a : of or relating to principles of right and wrong in behavior : ethical <moral judgments> b : expressing or teaching a conception of right behavior <a moral poem> c : conforming to a standard of right behavior d : sanctioned by or operative on one's conscience or ethical judgment <a moral obligation> e : capable of right and wrong action <a moral agent>
2 : probable though not proved : virtual <a moral certainty>
3 : perceptual or psychological rather than tangible or practical in nature or effect <a moral victory> <moral support>

get out of Afghanistan NOW.. it's much worse than they let on..it's a BLACK HOLE

the Muslims are not going to change how they been running the place for the last 1200 years, the Theocratic Oligarchy makes the rules and they aren't gonna change to help a bunch of peeons they now profit from by using them as slaves,... it is a Feudal State, they arent going to shame themselves and their clans by doing what an Infadel tells them to do. they will just suck up as much money as we are stupid enough to give them. then turn on us when the sun goes down.

hopefully Obama is wiser than the Generals on this

"snip...There is a logic inherent in the current situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan that says clearly to the administration of President Barack Obama, "Don't go any further with this one."

It is simple. It is impossible to fix Afghanistan without fixing Pakistan. It is impossible to fix Pakistan. Thus, Afghanistan is and will remain an impossible sinkhole.

It will, in fact, be the same kind of quicksand for the United States in terms of unwinnability that the Vietnam War was for more than a decade.

The further implication for the Obama administration is that, as was the case with the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson, all of its great objectives to meet the short- and long-term needs of the United States at home will go over the falls as it wrestles to find the resources and energy to contend with an expensive war that it cannot win and does not have the courage to end

Afghan tribes are taking up arms against their foreign occupiers. I saw this happen during the 1980s, when growing hatred of Soviet occupation forces ignited a national uprising.
