The Government has shut down.   Why not shut down the Afghanistan War!  This way we can save  some $$$$$ Save a Life, Save a Marine for his wife.   106 Soldiers have died in Afghanistan so far in 2013.  We have 15 months to go before the war is official over.  Unfortunately the war is over for 2272 U$ Military soldiers, hundreds of other Nato Troops and Thousands of Afghans.    The last soldier should have died in the war yesterday!    Who will be the last soldier to die for a mistake?    28% support the war and 90% don't even know the war is still going on????  What are you doing to end this insanity?

I took a long time off because  I have retired 2 years ago!  The time goes by so fast and all I do is a half fast job.    Of course the Job of Retirement is like a man named JOB or a Job.   It is wonderful to find my Blog is still here.  I thought it was lost in Cyber Space.   I am sure there is not enough space for my Blog in the Cyber World???.    Now my subject for today Are the Wars America is involved in.  The most important War is the War against Apathy and Ignorance.    Most people will tell me.   When it comes to this war,  I don't know and I don't care????/     In the Vietnam War's 12th year was the height of the anti War Demonstrations.    1959 is when the first soldier killed on the Vietnam Wall.   The last was in 1975,but there was a 21/2 years without a death.      January ,1973 the Paris Peace Accords were signed by the North and South Vietnam!  All U$ Soldiers left Vietnam.   The Casualties in 75 were at the embassy as the American Embassy was being evacuated?   Why was that done on the last day as the North Vietnam Soldiers were pouring into Saigon????    This should have been done a few days before Saigon was overrun????      Well 1971 was a turbulent year in American Streets.   Students, Workers, Anti War advocates were pressuring the government to end the War.   The  American Streets are empty today of any one protesting the Afghanistan War.    The reasons are simple.   There has been no story of  the Afghanistan War in the News Media~!!   There is no draft for the military.   There is no Tax to pay for the war.   All these have combined to damp down any protests.   The soldiers now die at a lower rate than in Vietnam.    Although for the soldier who dies all this doesn't matter.   They died for a lost Cause like Vietnam, Lebanon 1983, and Iraq in 2011!     We have 16 months and 8 to 10 Billion Dollars A month until 2015 when the last combat soldier leaves.       How can we tell the last soldier killed in Afghanistan, that he died for a lie.   John Kerry used this quote about Vietnam!    Ironically the last soldier killed in Vietnam was from Woburn, Mass.

The Afghanistan War is still going on Folks.     Over 2148 U$ Soldiers have been killed.   Many 1000's have been seriously wounded.   The Suicide Rate in the U$ Military for 2012 is one successful incident a day  and many attempts.   During my days in Vietnam there were many officers murdered by enlisted men. This was called "Fragging! "   A long protracted war with no end in sight is the perfect storm for self destruction.   The soldiers are like toys where the Pentagon sends them to Iraq and Afghanistan many times during their enlistments or until they break!   The American public believe the lines fed to them from the leaders in Washington.  "We are making progress and we will be leaving Afghanistan in 2014.    Then the Afghans will have to stand up to the Taliban on their own...   Al Qeada is never mentioned and neither is the American (contract worker or soldier)being killed today.  This 2014 pull out is much too late for her./him!  How many more soldiers need to die in Afghanistan.?   The Soviets left Kabul  after 8 unsuccessful years of war.  There have been comments heard on the streets.   "The Russians got  their butts kicked in Afghanistan!"   Unfortunately the triple Amputee who threw out the first pitch in the World Series didn't come home in tact after his tours of Iraq and Afghanistan?  The U$ will be leaving Afghanistan like the British, Soviets and Alexander the Great did in the cover of darkness so the Afghans won't shoot them on the way out.   That is what happened in Iraq almost a year ago.    At least there was a sign in Oakland Army Base saying to the Vietnam Vet.  "Welcome Home, USA is proud of you.   I didn't hear of any parades or celebrations with the last troops out of Iraq?   Unfortunately there will be NATO Soldiers killed in Afghanistan who were 3 years old when 911 happened in New York in 2014.    What Achilles said at the Wall of Troy after 10 years of war.   "By the way, what are we doing here!" This could be applied to the Afghanistan War.   Smedley Butler famous quote sums up the Wars in Iraq, Vietnam and Afghanistan.   "War is a Racket,  few profit and the many pay!"    How can the American people Stand Afghanistan!   10 Billion Dollars a month and 17 US soldiers killed there this month of October?       The Presidential Candidate did not talk about the war except for Ron Paul  The American People don't talk about this war as the few peace vigils have fewer people every year the war goes on.  Rod Serling would have a Great Twilight Zone Show.   "A 12 year War rages and the American People Ignore it's very existence!"

September 1, 1939 was the first day of World War II in Poland. Today is the first day the American Army will not conduct combat operations in Iraq! Unfortunately there are 50,000 U$ service men in Iraq until next year on 31 Dec 11 when the last U$ soldiers are suppose to be brought home. Unfortunately Millions of People did not live to see 2 Sep 45 when the Japanese signed the treating ending World War II. Unfortunately there will be many U$ soldiers in Iraq who will not live to see the end of next year! I returned to the U$A from my tour of Vietnam in Oakland, California with a sign " Welcome Home the U$A is Proud of You!" in 1972! I wonder if the last combat brigades will have a sign like this when they return to the U$A? The American People were duped into this war with lies and now the war official ended with more lies. The taxpayers are still spending billions into Iraq while we are eating bad eggs. That is no Yoke! The soldiers killed in Iraq were buried in the wrong grave sites. The wounded soldiers were given substandard rehabilitation at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington DC. Multiple tours of combat in Iraq created a very high suicide rate among the soldiers. The Commanders of the units had to instruct the soldiers to watch for early indications of potential suicides among their buddies! Iraq still has not functional government. The last soldier has not be killed in this war yet? Remember on May 1, 2003, and the famous "Mission Accomplished" speech by President Bush! Obama is making an Instant Replay of his speech last night only 7 and a half years later.

Iraq and Afghanistan

Combat Operations ended in Iraq on August 1st 2010. Yesterday a U$ soldier died north of Baghdad? Was this an accident or a combat casualty? May 1. 2003 was the end of the war in Iraq according to Commander in Chief G W Bush! The only real end of Combat operations will be when the last U$ soldier leaves Iraq! Leaving 50,000 soldiers in Iraq will lead to more combat deaths! The end of 2011 will be the day the U$ is required to have all the soldiers out of Iraq? Why not today be the end of combat operations in Iraq? I wonder what the last soldier to die in Iraq is doing now? Is he enjoying his last summer holidays before joining the army? Is she a reservist in some National Guard Outfit? How will that family feel when they receive the word that their family member will not be coming home alive? Why do U$ taxpayers have to pour $10 Billion a month into Iraq? The real question is why the American People are allowing this to happen?? This is a perfect example of what Smedley Butler's famous quote. "War is a Racket , Few profit the many pay! The big corporations are milking the last bit of profit from this war, before it ends. The American People are paying through the nose seeing their own economic situation crumbling before their eyes. That is if they have them opened to seeing what is really happening around them??? The U$ Tax payer and the American Military since 19th of March 2003 have been between Iraq and a Hard Place!
Afghanistan will send the most bodies back to the U$A this year than any other year of the 81/2war! The U$A is withdrawing from Afghanistan one body bag at a time. The protest against this war is muted due to the fact that we will withdraw from Afghanistan in July 2011! The American People still believe the Afghans landed the planes in the World Trade Towers. "Fight them over there so we won't fight them here!" is the famous quote of the supporters of the war. We spend $708 billion in defense so how can 2,500 Al Qeader land on the West Coast and take over the country???? That is the only response that is out in the public to justify this disaster. When soldiers are brought back mangled by road side bombs they are quoted in the Newspapers, "I want to go back and be with my buddies!" Of course they want to justify why they lost arms, legs, and eyes. The public still want to blame Bush for the war. Who is signing the sympathy cards to the families in the White House???? Obama is playing the same role as our last President only with more troop. He is droning on and on in Pakistan! Now with the threatening posture with Iran the U$ seems to think that the Military has all the answers. The Military budget and Wars are the reason that the U$A economy is going down the drain. "Live buy the sword, Die buy the sword!" The U$A is buying too many swords. I am trying to get my point across. The end of the Soviet Union was through Kabul and the U$ is taking that same route! Afghanistan is Killing U$

Full of KarBull

President Karzhai and President Obama are in a Love Fest in Washington DC! Let By Gones be Be By Gones! Obama was pointing the finger at Karzhai for a Corrupt Government! When ever you point your finger at someone, don't forget that 3 fingers are pointing back at you! Obama is the President of the most corrupt government in the history of the entire world. The amount of dollars stolen by defense contractors dwarfs any corrupted government in the world today! The bank bail out was another case of U$ taxpayers money stolen by the CEO's of these financial institutions that were bailed out! Now Obama and Karzhai have kissed and made up! In the 60's there was a slogan "Make Love Not War!" These guys are doing both,"Making Love and War" at the same time! Peace is never on their lips! How can a man send soldiers to die in a two wars that have pull out dates. 2011 in Iraq was too late for 27 soldiers killed there this year! 2012 is too late for a soldier killed everyday this year in Afghanistan. " Who wants to be the last soldier to die for a lie!" John Kerry in 1971! The more things Change the More they stay the same. Cows may come and Cows may go but the Karbull goes on for eternity for the Soldier killed there today and everyday until 2012!

Health Care!

The U$A is very ill. WE need health Care to get better. We are addicted to War! One soldier killed is too many and 1000 is not enough. In Vietnam the soldiers could not tell the good Vietnamese from the bad ones. In the U$Army today is the same story. We can't tell the good Muslims from the bad ones. We are between Iraq and a hard place. The Health Insurance companies make out like Bandits. The Banks are robbing U$ Blind and Military Industrial Complex is reaping the Profits from all these Wars. The American People belong to the 4 H club. Hapless, Helpless, Hopeless and Haggard ! 34% of the wealth is owned by 1% of the population up from 27% of the wealth. The American people are suffering the first economic depression caused by a war! The Biggest Crime in U$ History kicked off 2 wars. I always thought the police were sent in to solve crimes not the Army! If we don't have some health care soon the U$ prognosis could be Bleak!
