From an American hero in Afghanistan
I've said it before and I'll say it again: This
country blows, man. It's not even a country.
There are no roads,
there's no infrastructure, there's no government.
This is an
inhospitable, rock pit shit hole ruled by eleventh century warring
There is no civilization here.
I've been living with these Tajiks and Uzbeks and Turkmen for over a month and a half now and this much I can
say for sure: These guys, all of 'em, are cavemen.
Actual, living cavemen.
They LIVE to fight. It's what they do. It's ALL they do.
They have no
respect for anything, not for their families or for each other or for
They claw at one another as a way of life.
They play polo
with dead calves and force their five-year-old sons into human
cockfights to defend the family honor. Cavemen, roaming packs of savage,
heartless beasts who feed on each others barbarism.
Then again, maybe I'm just cranky.
I'm freezing my ass off on
this stupid hill because my lap warmer is running out of juice and I
can't recharge it until the sun comes up in a few hours.

Do me a favor.
Write a letter to CNN and tell Wolf and Anderson and that awful,
sneering, pompous Aaron Brown to stop calling the Taliban 'smart.'
They are not smart.
I suggest CNN invest in a dictionary because the
word they are looking for is 'cunning.'
The Taliban are cunning, like
jackals and hyenas and wolverines.
They are sneaky and ruthless and,
when confronted, cowardly
Muslims are nothing but hateful, malevolent parasites who
create nothing and destroy everything else.
Smart. Pfft. Yeah, they're
real smart.. They've spent their entire lives reading only one book
(and not a very good one, as books go) and consider hygiene and indoor
plumbing to be products of the devil.
Talking to a Taliban warrior about improving
his quality of life is like trying to teach an ape how to hold a pen;
eventually he just gets frustrated and sticks you in the eye with it.
Covering my tracks in the snow takes a lot of practice but I'm good at
Please, I tell you and my fellow Americans to turn off the TV sets
and move on with your lives.
The story line you are getting from CNN
and other news agencies is utter bullshit and designed not to deliver
truth but rather to keep you glued to the screen through the
We've got this one under control.
The worst thing you
guys can do right now is sit around analyzing what we're doing over
here because you have no idea what we're doing and, really, you don't
want to know.
We are your military and we are doing what you sent us
here to do.
