Afghanistan is the military graveyard
of empires, from Alexander The Great
down to our own time.

For ten years the U S has been involved
in a military action there.

The rationale was that after the 9-11
attack by Jihadists, we were going to
deny them a training camp base.

The bitter irony is that they have a
safe haven in neighboring Pakistan
and worse still, Jihadists have come
to our land, legally and illegally, and
have established terror recruitment
bases all over the USA, recruiting
native born malcontents to join their
ranks, to plot and train for the day
that they will strike.

They have safe havens in the USA
because the erstwhile Commander
in Chief, and his inept administration
have failed to secure our borders and
ports; and because states, cities and
local governments, offer political
sanctuary to the tens of millions of
illegals who have invaded our land
among them, many foreign terrorists.

Time to bring the troops home, secure
the Mexican border and prepare to
defend the homeland from attack
from within and without.

Failure to review, revise and police
legal immigration policies and practices
including "student" visas, "green cards"
and the like allows Jihadists to legally
enter the USA.

New York State and  City and the
majority of local political jurisdictions
therein, are exhibit A. Politically
correct to the point that all New
Yorkers are in grave danger.

Afghanistan is not a nation, it is a
tribal region.

We delude ourselves to think that
we can buy their allegiance.

Afghans have historically played
one foreign intruder against another.

There are never any winners in this
forelorn land, including the natives

Our would be Commander in Chief
has announced a gradual withdrawl
of our military from Afghanistan.

Our foes know this and are stepping
up actions against our military to
inflict as many casualties on us as
they can.

The Afghan tribesmen know that
their survival depends on duplicity
and double dealing with the U S
Taliban and Al Qaida.

It is a major tactical mistake to
operate on the premise that we
can use a greatly drawn down
military cadre to train Afghan
police and military to defend
themselves and their land from
the Taliban and Al Qaida.

We squander the lives of our valiant
military and waste billions of dollars
at a time when we face economic
collapse at home.

All for what?

The Middle East will soon go on fire.
Pakistan will fall , cutting off vital
supply lines to our troops in a land
of cruel winter, leaving them to face
the same fate as the British army in
Afghanistan in the First Anglo-Afghan

Iran will overrun Iraq and the oil
fields of the Middle East, denying
the U S the lifeblood of oil ensuring
economic collapse.

The  Jihadist sleepers, both illegal
and legal, now in our land ,will 
spring into action, along with their
allies of flash mobs of native born
domestic, antisocial malcontents.

Not only do we have an inept
Commander In Chief, but we have
and elected Congress , and a
complicit media ,which is enabling
him to destroy America.

Government can't save us. We must
save ourselves, the government and

When we fail to study history and
fail to see the peril of blind partyline
adherence to smooth talking
incompetent, politically correct
"leaders", we doom our Nation
and ourselves.

Consider the reflections of  one
of the few survivors regarding the
outcome of the First Anglo-Afghan
War in the 19th Century.

Keep in mind that, at that time
the British homeland did not face
the grave internal peril that Britain
Europe, America and all Americans
now face at home.

In 1843, the British army chaplain Rev G.H. Gleig wrote a memoir of the disastrous (First) Anglo-Afghan War, of which he was one of the very few survivors. He wrote that it was "a war begun for no wise purpose, carried on with a strange mixture of rashness and timidity, brought to a close after suffering and disaster, without much glory attached either to the government which directed, or the great body of troops which waged it. Not one benefit, political or military, was acquired with this war. Our eventual evacuation of the country resembled the retreat of an army defeated”. [10]
