“What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other arm-chair, weekend warriors in this Administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne.”
Yet the war in Afghanistan is ideological. It serves the goal of protecting and expanding energy capital investment in the Caspian Sea area,and uses the cover of protecting US and the west from ‘terror’ of the Taliban.
At the same time Obama is together with the Israel Lobby pushing Iran into war,for the above reasons,and to protect Israel’s hegemony in the Mideast..
