    What the Brits, Afghanis, and USA do have in common is: "Foreigners Out Of Afghanistan in 2010." "Out of Afghanistan in 2010."

    Gordon Brown: London summit to decide end game in Afghanistan - Telegraph

    Gordon Brown is otherwise famous for discussing the concept of "credit," at the Davos meeting, earlier on in the year. Still, the former U. S. Colonials: Would Not Attend, and not because they had already heard enough about it! Uncle Sam Lee was still on board.

    President Obama, later in the year, would travel to Asia to meet with the newer concept, "Uncle Sam Lee:" Just possibly to try to calm the new lenders, propping up the U. S. federal government support of the "credit market(?)". In fact, it almost seems like, "Only yesterday," another concept that the West Wing Likes, from a Trajectory Time that caused the whole mess. The "Great Spirit of Entrepreneurship," has earned the disgrace it deserves.

    From an earlier time, Bush would eventually leave for the Ranch, and the borrowing binge, originally caused by the Reagan Trajectory, would get well underway again--mainly in the name of Iraq. That was in name only. The Ivy League educated, mortgage bankers: Would even go further with the same Trajectory: Claiming they were making viable loans, just like the Pentagon was enaged in a viable military strategy. The first was apparently Afghanistan(?), where the Taliban were put on the run(?). The second was apparently in Iraq, wherein internal stability would be replaced with near Civil War(?).

    Uncle Sam Lee was eventually tapped: To pay for it all(?), including the mortgage banking(?).

    And so there will finally be a likely meeting In London, at last. Al Qaeda is gone, which the Taliban would just as likely have done in on their own--eight years ago, at their own expense.

    Mainly, the Asians are now left holding, "Change You Can Believe In," created by the GOP!

    (What anyone learns from two Bush Family Presidencies? Clearly Two Wrongs can't get it right, especially given the basis Trajectory!)

    The predicament we are in doesn't belong just to Bush.

    Granted, when al Qaeda brought down the WTC, the proper response was just what Bush did, "Go after and Kill Bin Laden". al Qaeda was scattered and we had Bin Laden in our sights, then, inexplicably, Bush turned to Iraq and for some strange reason, the majority of Americans believed that Saddam was behind 9/11.

    Now the Republicans of today say, "Anyone who believed Saddam was behind 9/11 is a fool. No one ever said Saddam had any connection to 9/11".

    90% of the military believed Saddam was behind 9/11. Many enlisted to go after the perpetrators of 9/11. Where did they get that idea, and worse, where was the press?

    Just because Republicans said, "You are with us or with the terrorists", doesn't mean the press should be so cowed, and that they can't dispute what they know are lies.

    I almost understand the Republicans. They seem to have a mentality of fear and terror and scared so attack. But the press, I can't forgive. They knew Iraq was devastated after an 8 year war with Iran. They knew we pretty much destroyed Iraq’s military after the Kuwait invasion. They knew Iraq didn't have the manufacturing or industry for weapons production. They knew who Iraq bought weapons from and how much. Yet, they went along with this "war" that has cost this nation dearly in treasure and young people.

    Almost 90% think war is retaliation for Saddam's role in 9/11,

    Rdean(?) poster puts it as follows:

    "I almost understand the Republicans. They seem to have a mentality of fear and terror and scared so attack. But the press, I can't forgive.

    Usually, the combined resources of CIA, DOD, FBI, Interpol, United Nations, AEC, Mad Magazine, and all the sub-units of those and any others: Would have far better information than the United States Press Corps.

    These are an Ivy League educated people--who have no concept of information or data whatsoever! See, For Example, Bush Administration(?) reaction to U. S. Intelligence Estimates(?), and any Briefings(?)!
