Resistance to occupation

Why haven’t I heard anything in the last two weeks about the “War in Iraq”?

Everything on the nightly news is about the war in Afghanistan and the immediate need to escalate with additional troops.

Maybe it is time to take a breath, forget the sensational headlines and take a look at history…

One hundred years ago, the British failed to occupy Afghanistan.

Thirty years ago, the Soviet Union spent 8 years making the same mistake.

Maybe after 8 years after the “George Bush” war, it is time to take a second look.

Is it possible that the people of Afghanistan look at the Americans and other “United Nations” counties as outsiders that are occupying their country?

Before we react and escalate with additional troops, maybe it is time to look at a non-military solution.

I fully support President Obama. But it is time to think carefully.

God bless America. And God bless our whole world!
