Opinion: “Out of That Damned Spot”

There are some things that are true, and will always remain true. One truth is that you cannot create a modern, secular society from a primitive theocracy, controlled by tribal leaders and war lords, infested with corrupt politicians, and drug trafficking thugs. Added to this toxic misery a violate populace of desperately poor, uneducated, hysterics.

There is no Aristotelian syllogistic necessary to prove that Afghanistan is not worthy of any more American lives. The country, if it can truly be called a country, rather more a geographic space lost to time and evolution as the more appropriate description of Afghanistan.
