So this is how we "end" Forever Wars: through inflicting by inflicting catastrophic economic damage as an American policy choice. Call it population-centric vengeance.
Just a reminder that if one doesn’t limit the idea of war to military actions, we’ve been at war against Afghanistan since 1978 when Carter and Brzezinski enabled and empowered the mujahideen to overthrow a secular state of the kind the Blob later envisioned but did nothing to bring about. And then things got worse.
For all your traditional Korean instrument-noise rock-shoe gazing needs, Jambinai can help!
Increasingly, I define 'American Exceptionalism' to mean exceptionally cruel and exceptionally hubristic - that is, our 'leaders', our people much less so. But I guess that, just as the Beltway believes Afghanistan is getting the government it deserves and thus washing its hands of any responsibility for the death, hardship, chaos, and dependency we have engendered, we Americans are getting the government we deserve by not loudly protesting and voting the sadists out of office.
Forgot to add - the Ak Dan Gwang Chil band is great! Fascinating instruments that create wonderful sounds. Thanks.
