Mortar Shells Hit Kabul Residential Areas; at Least 8 Dead ...]
Mortar Shells Hit Kabul Residential Areas; at Least 8 Dead KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — About 23 mortar shells slammed into different parts of the Afghan capital on Saturday, killing at least eight , 23 wounded.

The Taliban control 90% of Afghanistan.
After so many years since bush ignored the warnings in his pdbs , then 9-11, then it was off to 2 wars.
bush allowed 9-11 , now we're mired in another quagmire like Viet Nam.
How'd that turn out?
At least chenny saved halliburton from impending bankruptcy.
America lost so much liberties, the wholesale spying on us started, and with the patriot act the DHS can disappear people. No rights under the charge of domestic terrorism.
Department Of Homeland Security- sounds like a Nazi bureau to me.
The Republicans have been all about power, and fascism, dump was a devotee of hitler, kept his book in his bedside table.
The Republicans show over and over as right now, they chose power, party over our Constitution and laws.
A soft coup is ongoing right now right in front of all of us.
dump lost by over 6 million popular votes, but is trying to steal the election.
The majority are so tired of the Soviet era speak- fake news, don't trust what you see, hear, only trust dear leader.
The Covid non response shows a sociopathic party that chose $ over human lives.
Over 255,000 dead the expected death toll is 500,000 by Christmas.
The Republicans are obviously a party of sedition, they are traitors, as the Confederate states were before the Civil War.

It's up to us, the majority to stop this NOW.

      Viet Nam
      What was the outcome of the war in Viet Nam?
      The US withdrew- in other words- the US lost, and left.
      The conditions are very similar- both were civil wars.
      The US corporations and local economies now depend on endless wars.
      War is America's largest GDP.
      Until this sociopathic mindset- profit from killing others ends, we aill have the blow back of killed, maimed soldiers, destroyed families lives, suicides the human toll on Americans for what?

      What was gained from Viet Nam?
      What was gained from Afghanistan?
      What was gained in Iraq?

      The big lie - keeping America safe must be ended.

      We need military for defense, not corporate profits, the Pentagon budget is rife with waste- $Billions spent on what?

      We need an economy built on rebuilding America, which will have a pay back, nothing is gained from dumping $Billions into military material,which sits and has no pay back.

      Enough is enough. End the wars for profits corporate cash cow.

I spent 13 years on active duty in the U. S. military, about half of it spent in the Middle East. Negotiating with the terrorists of the Taliban lends them legitimacy. Trump and Pompeo are psychotic idiots who desecrate the deaths of our troops who fought against terrorism. Bush’s war wasn’t legit, in any way, but ridding the Middle East of the terroristic like the Taliban was the one righteous thing that I could hold on to during my overseas service. Trump is negotiating with the Taliban so that his handlers in Russian can eventually take over Afghanistan.
