Like a criminal setting fire to a house to cover the fact that he shot the inhabitants, we may have to blow up the world to cover up our messes, stories of which seem to be leaking right and left. Perhaps that’s why the push to engage Iran.
Or at least maybe we move out of Afghanistan, where things are totally FUBAR - and we are not “winning” - into Pakistan. And replace al Qaeda with Haqqani. Al Qaeda is running out of “leaders.”
No wonder our presidents stay in bubbles. They’d go mad quickly if they had to deal with reality.
Especially when the reality is insane.
....but hey, do what you want....you will anyway.
