Will The Graveyard of Empires Claim the US, Too?

"We've always been at war with Eastasia."

When Orwell wrote the line, he must have been thinking about Afghanistan.  He didn't know that he would be quoting any random US citizen in the year 2017--but he didn't have to know that.  Afghanistan is called 'The Graveyard of Empires' for a very good reason.

Now The Donald is thinking of slamming several thousand more US troops into that graveyard and extending the longest war the US has ever fought by a few more years, at the cost of $4 million/soldier/year.


To keep poppies from financing Mad Muslims?  Poppies or no, the Mad Muzzies have managed to carry out their war on the Crusaders very well, if only fitfully--so far.

Here's a thought for PDT: draft 'em and send the 9th and 4th Circuit Courts to Afghanistan,  Then implement the travel/immigration bans.  When the 4th and 9th forces win the war in The Graveyard, revoke the ban and bring those troops home.

Victory all around!
