    I find it mind boggling that an attack that managed to take down more US aircraft in a single day than anything since Vietnam is not the leading story on all the newscasts.

    Fuck Hamid Karzai and Afghanistan, let Karzai fend for himself. Obama has made the situation worst, we should just get the hell out. Theres not many news stories on this because our great leader Obama is running the show…Pathetic

    If they ever check the lip prints on Obama’s bony derriere, the will find traces of DNA for Chris Matthews, Anderson Cooper, Rachael Maddow, Arianna Huffington and the rest of their colleagues in the liberal MSM.

    If Joseph Pulitzer were alive today, he would not believe how the press has degenerated into nothing more than a propaganda machine for one of the most corrupt and incompetent administration in all of history. Pulitzer know that only unbiased, alert and aggressive media could protect the citizens of this country, Here are two of my favorite Pulitzer quotes:

    "There is not a crime, there is not a dodge, there is not a trick, there is not a swindle, there is not a vice which does not live by secrecy. Get these things out in the open, describe them, attack them, ridicule them in the press, and sooner or later public opinion will sweep them away. Publicity may not be the only thing that is needed, but it is the one thing without which all other agencies will fail."

    “Our Republic and its press will rise or fall together … An able, disinterested, public-spirited press, with trained intelligence to know the right and courage to do it, can preserve that public virtue without which popular government is a sham and a mockery. A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press will produce in time a people as base as itself. The power to mold the future of the Republic will be in the hands of the journalists of future generations.”

    I am convinced there is not one single problem this country has, whether it is with the economy, education, crime or international relations, which would not be quickly resolved if our media were dedicated, honest and diligent. Unfortunately, there is no chance of that happening any time soon.

    Another reason to get the hell out of Astan.

    Leave that shithole to the Taliban.
