The past 2 years have been busy, so I apologize for not maintaining my blog. At this point blogging (to me anyway) has become the equivalent of Nero's fiddle. Rome is burning for sure, just listen to the news, or watch PBS news, and you will see the pardigms shift from "We hate G.W Bush" to "We Still hate G.W Bush but look how brilliant our engenue POTUS is, and look how well "Hope and Change" has worked for Him personally." "Hope and Change"(mere campaign slogans) and a bit of skillfull telepromter reading has earned Barack Hussien Obama(we can use "Hussein" now, because he finally admits to his Muslim heritage) a Nobel peace prize, which surely marks the low point in the history of the prize considering the fact that Mohandas Ghandi was nominated 5 times without ever receiving one. The lastest fire set in our "Shining city on a hill" has been the Afghanistan situation in which we have a cabinet filled with leftwing college professors advising a weak and indecisive dove of an executive to ignore the warnings and requests of his commander on the ground in that war theatre about the resources he requires to win the fight. With winter coming to Afghanistan, there will be a pause which the Taliban will use to consolidate their positions of strength, and expand their areas of influence. This is the time when Gen. McCristal's requested troop surge would be able to deny this ground to the Taliban. What is certain is that The Taliban has a better war-plan than Barack Obama does. That matters to the entire world, and in the big picture, the world will be much better off with a mildy corrupt Karzai government, than it will with a resurgent Taliban.
