MTpolitics, normally found here is having server problems, and the site’s proprietor, Craig, will be out of town this week and unable to fix it until his return. Fear not, for, in the interim, he is using a BlogSpot site, which can be found here.
It is time to take a serious look at our involvement there. Every day there are news reports about more deaths. Every night on the TV we see death and destruction. Why are we still there?
The land is too large to secure all of it. The people causing this death, damage, and destruction can roam anywhere, and we can’t possibly police the whole place. Why are we still there?
We occupied this land, which we had to take by force, but it causes us nothing but trouble. Why are we still there?
Their government is unstable, and in the process of changing. Why are we still there?
Refugees are fleeing by the thousands, driven from their homes. Why are we still there?
It will cost billions to rebuild, which we can’t afford. Why are we still there?
There are more than 1,000 religious sects. We can’t secure the borders to protect against waves of insurgents. Why are we still there?
And to repeat: Every day we hear of more Americans killed in this dangerous land.
It is clear. We should get out of California.
