There is Another article this morning in the NYT about the Afghan war.
The readers' comments are worth reading as usual. Although I haven't read all of them, an overwhelming majority calls for America to withdraw out of that absurd, insane, neo-colonial military entanglement with no chance to achieve anything whatsoever but final disaster.
Save for a tiny minority of Europeans and Americans diehard warmongers or those gullible enough to believe in the politicians' outright lies, a vast majority of the American as well as European people demand and end to this sheer madness.
To no avail of course since people have no say in any matter in our so-called democratic countries...
The Germans, the French can't stand that their countries are involved in that far away land which has no connection to them. But the media, particularly in France, have decided not to play any role in conveying the French people opposition, as these media have long renounced to play their part as fourth power.
And after all, only 45 French soldiers have been killed over there, which is insignificant after 8 years on the ground.
Since the economic crisis is striking everywhere next to everybody, the war by far is not a major concern for Europeans and yet, how much do the costs of this war weigh on our economies?
E la nave va...Gods of all civilisations are speechless in front of human stupidity! Only when they'll decide to put an end to the lunacies of their creatures will wars no longer happen on earth.
Except that there are no gods!
