As the sun sets on yet another abject and costly political and diplomatic failure of Western incompetence, despite billions of dollars and many thousands of lives squandered, another death stains the already very dirty clothes our "leaders" wear.
This latest killing, by what in all common sense, is a freedom fighter in his own land, proves, as if proof were necessary, that our meddling is just about as bad as it gets. The reaction to 9/11 to root out terror camps was the right thing to do. To engineer very badly regime change in order to seek financial gain for arms and other global, corporate henchmen has proven disastrous.
My only beef with this is I have the dishonour to have my Nation and taxes plundered to pay for these gross mistakes. Even that pales into insignificance at the fatalities employed for little more than arms dealers, drug dealers and their compliant political masters benefit and personal gain.
That we are to get a very bloody nose from this Afghanistan and Iraqi is almost acceptable except for my personal lack of freedom to have had a say. Gives representative politics a very bad name for the clowns it produces.
