Burial Grounds of Empires

Yes I know i may sound like a broken record, but this is no laughing matter. Soldiers are dying, frankly unnecessarily, in Afghanistan while its head of state is fighting to the last soldier -- of the West which he despises -- while he steals money directly from US taxpayers, by far the largest providers of cash and while his brother, the opium king, is selling it to addicts in mostly higher income addicts who are, as you guessed it, mainly westerners, which Karzai also despises.

What to do? The report here cannot be more clear. Kabul has got the West by the balls.

Karl Marx, of all people, would be laughing behind his stupid beard. Afterall it was he who uttered those immortal words: "History repeats itself first as tragedy second as farce."

The US foray in Afghanistan is a farce. But actually it's worse. People, soldiers, innocent civilians, enemies, are dying everyday. But the enemies are dying at a slower rate than the "Good Guys".

This movie can only end in a farcical tragedy.
