Arianna Huffington: Sunday Roundup

leave a comment »

The foreign press was told the week we invaded Afghanistan, (in the 1930s it might have been called an American Expeditionary Force as it was when we invaded Iran) that we were going there to clean-up the airports of leftover bomb-holes and broken USSR material. I heard this in the “Pointer’s Echo” above West Point Military Academy which just closed up tight after the 9/11 and anthrax appearing in the US Post Office. I was a crew member of an archeology testing where hurricane Floyd had damaged their forest grounds, needing new roads to haul trees thrown over by the wind. So, we had three, count them three, issues happen at once: 9/11 attacks, unknown anthrax attacks in the post office, first reported as “weaponized” later determined to be mistaken, and the invasion of Afghanistan,”Russia­’s Vietnam” according to one WWII veteran, my dad. We are only human and need to separate these events out as they finally and not so decidedly became part of our domestic and foreign policies. Citing the Supreme Court, which according to the WGA, determined the “national past-time” to be above the laws of monopoly, we were, “three strikes and you’re out” perhaps and need to reform our policy, and admit it was wrong and now will make it better or “right”.
