Oh, how 2001

OMG, the Taliban is detonating bombs in Pakistan and threatening more bombs to be detonated unless Pakistan's military quits fighting them and gives them several provinces. And a Krispy Kreme franchise*. This has been going on for a few weeks since the Taliban decided that they weren't satisfied with controlling the massive portion of Afghanistan that Americans didn't control. And that bombing those American strongholds was getting b-o-r-i-n-g.

Not for nothing, but we've been at war with these bastards for, what, EIGHT YEARS? Why the fuck aren't they all dead? I mean, we have the strongest, best trained, best funded military in the world... how the hell are any of them still breathing? I guess the only possible answer is that the leadership in the US (President Bush, VP Cheney, Rumsfeld and the rest) were absolutely worthless.

No, this isn't just another diatribe about the failures of the past Administration. I just wanted to remind everyone of what a miserable failure President Bush was, but you probably already know that because of your repossessed car, foreclosed home and lost job. I also wanted to take a second to think about ways to end all this. The problem is, there isn't a quick and dirty solution. In fact, you're fighting people who are prepared to die. So, why not grant them their wish?

Seriously, give up on the economic reforms. In fact, give up on anything. The only real solution is to turn everyone against the Taliban and the only way to do that is with money. So, give $10,000 to ANY Pakistani or Afghani who brings you the head of a member of the Taliban.

That's gotta be a hell of lot cheaper, anyway.

*This is the first of what will be MANY gratuitous plugs for companies that I own stock in.
