POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

Yes, indeed, Mr. Manley, but I’m afraid the gap is in the intelligence is in people like yourself who help to keep this bloody, pointless war going.

Afghanistan has always been nothing more than an American vengeance operation, and once they had control of the place, America did not even know what to do, except kill more people and break down doors all over the countryside.

And you, Mr. Manley, American wannabe as you’ve shown so clearly in the past, have only helped keep this going.

Why else on earth do you think Harper, Bush’s most abjectly servile friend, picked you to do a report?

This prison break very much reminds me, albeit on a smaller scale, of the Tet Offensive in Vietnam which dumbfounded Americans who thought they had everything going nicely with killing Vietnamese.

You simply cannot suppress a major part of a population indefinitely – unless you are willing to act like Stalin – and you cannot in a few years change the habits and culture of a thousand years.

To say anything else is to be as blind and stupid as Bush.
