    How to fix Afganistan

    1) Bring significant amounts of their children here to be raised and educated. When they are of age send them back with the mission to uplift their degenerate culture.

    2) See to it that every Afgan has access to satellite television and the internet and give them programming that will lift them out of their degenerate culture. Something similar was done with this country. We were seemingly in an inexcapable well of racism. Due to imersion of Americans in a different culture (television) we were lifted out of that well. There is no reason why we can't do the same there.

    Re: "And the sooner we un-do eveything Bush did, the better."

    You mean, things like keeping us safe after 9/11?

    What actually needs undoing is everything Obama has done since his election.

    And, we can't wait 'til President Romney gets started on it.

    In other news....

    Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, after falsely taking credit for saving the entire American Automobile Industry, says taking military intervention into the sovereign nation of Iran is a very real option if he were elected to be President - stating that Iranian oil deposits are just likely to insight terrorism against America as Iraqi oil was.

    We never leave anywhere, ever. Why are we still in Germany?

    The U.S. created another mess by intervening in a country on the other side of the world. Rather than think things through, including a more tactical approach such as the one Biden proposed years ago, the neo-con Bushies invaded with no plan or strategy. They should have thought more about the mess the U.S. created in Iran in the early 1950s when we overthrew a democratically elected government and for which we are paying dearly 60 years later.

    Glad the Seattle Times mentioned the withdrawl and immediate demise of South Vietnam.

    And the sooner we un-do eveything Bush did, the better.
