  1. From the USA:

    Kucinich on Afghanistan: War is a losing proposition

    In Thursday’s report, “Kucinich’s Afghanistan resolution fails to pass,” Republican Rep. Mark Kirk, who served as a Naval Reserves intelligence officer in Afghanistan, claims the debate about the war in Afghanistan aids “the agenda of the Taliban propagandists.”

    Kirk has it backwards. Our presence in Afghanistan facilitates the Taliban, especially in their recruitment efforts.

    To illustrate, if a uniformed Taliban military invaded and attacked the United States with the overwhelmingly destructive and sophisticated firepower that we possess, you can be sure our military recruiters would have an easy time soliciting volunteers to fight the foreign invaders.

    It is impossible to win in Afghanistan militarily — a hard lesson the Russians learned years ago. Kucinich is on the right track. Let’s cut our losses and get out.
