Too much LSD?

The Earthbound Misfit points out that George W. Bush appears to have a long-lost European brother.

Russian troops. In Afghanistan. That gasping sound you hear from Moscow is the sound of a thousand Russian rulers after laughing their heads off for hours and shortly before asking NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, "Are you on fucking CRACK, or just the dumbest asshole on the planet?" The notion of Russia ever sending troops anywhere *near* the Afghan morass that destroyed their empire is on par with the notion of Russia's leaders voluntarily castrating themselves. Not happening. No way. No how. In no universe where the sky is blue and water is wet, anyhow.

  1. About now the Russians have to be quite happy we weren't paying attention 20 years ago. And they are probably already hoping to get the Chinese in there.

  2. The Taliban grew out of the Afghan Mujahideen, which we funded. Talk about hoist on your own fucking petard.

    In Viet Nam we took over a failed war the French couldn't win. In Afghanistan we took over a failed war the Russians couldn't win.

    The last 80 years, or so, of American foreign policy have been an unmitigated disaster. Real chimps couldn't have done any worse.

  3. God I laughed when I first heard this on the news. I said you got to be f#*kng kidding ! Who's in charge here or are things really that bad that you have to ask the Russians for help ? You’re right JzB, real chimps couldn’t have done any worse.

  4. Hi BT,
    Good post and well said. Earthbound is on a roll lately. I've been enjoying her blog.
