With the Republicans led by the nose by the Taliban Tea Party & the Democrats on a homosexual promotion binge, the United States has one last hope of assembling a little martial integrity. This hope lay in Afghanistan. Sell the A-10 Warthog Fleet to the Afghan National Army (ANA).
My hunch is that’s what the U.S. Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, has in mind. I hope he’s not too timid to pull it off. Lately Hagel has been talking about downsizing the military and in doing so, eliminating the Warthog aeroplane fleet. If this comes to be, we can sell the fleet for one dollar or so to the Afghan National Army who, with us leaving the premises, is in dire need of air support against the Taliban enemy out of Pakistan. It could make the difference in the war.
Instead, it looks like Hamid Karzai, the president of Afghanistan, and Barack Obama, the U.S. president, are abandoning the ANA, which is a pity, a shame, and very possibly a mortal sin. It looks like this is why MSNBC, the Democrat channel on American TV, has only been blathering about queers & a tub of lard in New Jersey & ignoring the Afghanistan War.
Maybe its too late for martial integrity. Maybe it’s all in Pakistan. Sometimes my personal paranoia taints my perspective. Sometimes I don’t see too straight. But, also, I am occasionally right on target.
