The Real ACME Pipe Full of Fun Kit

Operation Enduring Pipeline
by Don Bacon

With John McCain and Barack Obama now arguing about widening the Afghanistan war and invading Pakistan, the TAPI natural gas pipeline has a better chance than freedom ever had. It would be an American-controlled cash cow that would hurt Iran. All the US needs to do is pacify Afghanistan with more troops (to safeguard TAPI) and balkanize Pakistan (to stymie IPI) while widening the war and antagonizing India. Freedom be damned. Freedom was never an option anyhow, especially when there’s money to be made by endless war.

Afghanistan crisis worse than Iraq
by Haroon Siddiqui

There’s a lot we know about Afghanistan and a lot more we don’t. An expert who knows much more than most of us – whose prescient insights I have benefited from for a decade and whom the John Manley commission consulted last year – says Afghanistan will get worse in the coming months.

  1. That was a good interview, and it’s become pretty clear that the only solution in Afghanistan is to negotiate with the Taliban, unfortunately Bush is more likely to listen to someone like Frank Gaffney, who’s solution, as stated on the BBC the other night, is to “kill them all”, than to listen to anyone sane and who actually knows the region in any type of detail.

  2. Joe did a great job on the focus there. I just happened to run across it last night right after he posted it, thanks to your youtube channel. ; )
    the willful blindness of these dupes is astounding.

    just heard on Gard’s show that he had Angela on last hour, and his podcast has been non-existent for the past week… dammit!
