    Time to get out of Afghanistan. The Mission has changed too much. Now they're conducting a Drug War against the poor Afghan farmers? That was not why we went over there. That was never part of the original mission. Can't stay there forever. It's time to come home.

    Poor BBC. They actually believe that their fellow Leftists here in America are going to be outraged over this. Not gonna happen. The so-called "Anti-War" Leftists are the biggest frauds in this country. Their Hopey Changey is in there now. They only feigned outrage over torture when a Republican was President. The BBC will figure this out very soon. What a scam.
