I think today's commitment to 10 more years in Afghanistan sucks.
It's the worst news I've heard recently ... and the media is so glib in their delivery of the phrase "Twenty- twenty-four," as if their insistent suckling on the teat of alliteration excuses the insanity of what they are reporting. The reports I've seen state "twenty-twenty-four" as a closing remark, almost an afterthought instead of mentioning it up front.
President Wham-O had the nerve to state he is concerned about the various "costs" of the ongoing "war" in Afghanistan.
What's the invoice tally going to be in 2024 with "thousands" of "special forces" remaining despite the "pull out" in 2014?
Note to young people: Forget attending college, take a guaranteed shortcut to success by enrolling in DeVry's Drone Degree Program and learn drone repair and design, because that's some job security you can count on and as stable as becoming a mortician or opening a crematorium.
Drones create jobs! is the next credo I anticipate for bumper stickers.
"Our plant added 400 jobs last year, Diane, thanks to drones."
Imagine, Afghanistan drone operations until "twenty-twenty-four."
