I love it, your ending sentence did all the talking and cut to the chase -- "The question of the week is irrelevant. pl"

I like the ending sentence, it speaks volumes. Question now is, will the COINESTAS listen, or will they continue to function with their ears full of wax and refuse to let go of their 'failed religion'?


In my humble opinion,knowledge and experiance,I have to say no.We are in a no-win no-lose position and can only continue between those two points.A perfect or even a satisfactory ending is not within our present timeframe.As even the experts are calling for decades,can we invest in that?I think not.There ae many more inportant things our country needs to do than Afghanistan.


I like the allusion to "The People of the Lie". The author of that book, and of "The Road Not Taken", was notoriously unable to even remotely follow his own advice. In addition, "The People of the Lie" lapses into a kind of fugue about exorcism.

But... but... "The People of the Lie" is must, must, must, must reading. It very briefly covers the central component of human pathological psychology better than anything else. Must reading.


There he goes again, our pleasant, hyper-active, Sydney J. Freedberg Jr..

arbogast, I found the "people of the book" of COIN, but no "People of the Lie". What am I missing?


I thought it was going to be some boring old post, but it really compensated for my time. I will post a link to this page on my blog. I am sure my visitors will find that very useful.
