CLIMATE CHANGE? OR JUST A STRETCH OF BAD WEATHER?

What raises my hackles is the authoritarian bent of the GW believers. They KNOW they have the answers and they KNOW that you should shut up and comply.

It is scary.

There is nothing voluntary about any of the "solutions" that they support.They're talking about passing laws, issuing mandates and fining or arresting those who do not comply.

Not exactly what I would consider consistent with American values

WHAT'S IN A NAME?

One problem with deploying more troops to Afghanistan is the practical consideration of how do we supply them? Afghanistan is landlocked. All supplies have to come by air or overland through Pakistan or Iran. There are no ports in countries to the north close enough to make supplying through them remotely feasible. Consequently the Afghan War has been a "light footprint" war for reasons other than political ones. Right now we not only supply our troops but our "allies" as well. I'm sure we haven't reached the upper limits of the number of troops we could supply but putting together the logistical capacity to supply an increase in troop numbers would be a nightmare.
