Remember the Good Old Days?
Just after 9/11, even we liberal doves could kind of see why the U.S. needed to invade Afghanistan and kill off all the al Qaida in sight.
I mean, we knew most of the 9/11 terrorists were of Saudi nationality, but they trained in Afghanistan, and we knew Bush wasn't about to invade his employers' palaces in Saudi.
So, Afghanistan had to take the whipping for allowing Saudi militants to train to be terrorists on their soil.
Once American troops landed on Afghani soil, BushCo realized they could be of much better use attacking Iraq, where there was oil to be plundered and plenty of post-invasion money to be made for his daddy Dick's bosses at Halliburton.
Bush ordered the troops in Afghanistan to be cut to the level of the Lukenbach, Texas police department.
He left the task of hunting for 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden to a few Afghan nomads, who probably hurt themselves laughing at the very idea of capturing their hero and handing him over to BushCo.
Nothing to see there, move on.
Now that American troops are all but depleted in Bush's vanity war with Iraq, Afghanistan has become overrun again with record opium crops and a sturdy new al Qaida.
Bush has done more to develop and foster a league of Uber-Terrorists than bin Laden could have ever hoped.
Afghanistan has actually become more of a shithole than it was before we invaded ...and that, my friends, is saying something.
But for those of you who value a fabulous heroin rush, Bush has nation-built a country that delivers the finest smack in the world, with plenty of security lapses to ensure its fresh, regularly scheduled delivery to America.
I couldn't be more proud of Our President.
