And people are fighting over it!
Let's just pull all our people out and let them fight it out.
They have jack shit natural resources. Nobody wants the country except them, so let the various tribes fight it out amongst themselves.
I have a bunch of pictures and for the most part it looks like Arizona in most places but really dirty... Go past Gold canyon on the US60 towards Queen Valley and you are in Afganistan!
War is God's way of teaching Americans geography.

I see you also have an eye for ambrose quote. I dont know jack about him but I have had this quote for a long time. Glad you like it. O and welcome to gunslot. hope you like our little coner of the internet world.
Bierce was an interesting individual from the late 1800's and early 1900's... He tried many career paths and even servied in the infantry during the civil war. He is most notably known for his criticism of pretty much everything from being born to politics...
There is only one honest impulse at the bottom of Puritanism, and that is the impulse to punish the man with a superior capacity for happiness.
— H.L. Mencken
You are right Bob. USA, lock the borders and protect them. Afghanistan-Lock the borders and let them fight it out amongst themselves.
Imagine what our country could do with that money if it were a tax rebate to us... Reduce taxes and stay the heck home... I have been all over the world and seen no real use in most of our incursions other than cool scars and stories to retell later for me... I don't want my son fighting or dying for things I don't care about...
Support the troops, fire the politicians...
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed – and thus clamorous to be led to safety – by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
— H.L. Mencken
all that fighting will be on our land, make no mistake about that...we're just not sure if we will be fighting Muslims or our own out-of-control government.
I don't know that there will ever be any real fighting in this country... Not against our own government at least... There are too many people who talk alot, but not many that do anything...
Just my humble honest opinion
If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy. Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is perhaps the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. The loss of liberty at home is to be charged to the provisions against danger, real or imagined, from abroad.
— James Madison
What makes the American government think
we can stop those wars.
We have been allies with every country over there
at one time or another and at war with them some
We train and equip their armies and then go to war with them
Makes perfect sense to me. But what do I know, I'm just a
poor blue collar worker who jumped when they said jump.
Nicely put! I agree!
Remember the little moment in time called "The Holy Crusades"? People have been trying to influence these people for seemingly all of time. The onle personal successful that I have heard of was Alexander The Great mostly due to his great armies adn the fact that he would dessimate anoyone who opposed him. We are bound by some many moral objectors and rules of war that we are just wasting time in my humble honest opinion...
The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule.
H. L. Mencken
or the mescans, I think a war with mexico is imminant.
War with Mexico would last 4-5 weeks at most... Their army is so poorly paid and plauged by moral that a proper Psy Ops program would defeat them almost immediately with limited bombings required...
I am not really talking about our government..Muslims in America already intend to takeover...a confrontation is coming, it's just when. And the worst thing that anybody can think, in my opinion is, IT will never happen here...Socialists are pushing us in a bad direction right now.
that, at some point in my life, I will either shoot a muslim or be shot by one.
kill or be killed remains to be seen.
