…What the Hell are we fighting for?!? Are we even fighting these sheep bangers?

It seems that we have deployed to Afghanistan, to help kick Taliban @$$, the National Guard Agribusiness Development Teams. Whiskey … Tango … Foxtrot…. Not ordinary citizen-soldiers, these farmer-citizen-soldiers are now “plucked from the field” to go halfway ‘round the world, to do what? Teach the Taliban how to grow goats? Poppies? While the US suffers under the worst drought conditions in recent memory.

I’ve been chewing on this for a few days trying to put together a coherent post, but I just can’t do it. It would be funny if it weren’t so sad. I need input from you guys, to try to wrap my head around it, but I have some questions to lead off with:

-Why does the NG even have “Agribusiness Development Teams?”
-How much is that setting us back ($$$)?
-When did they get there? How long have they been deployed? What brainiac sent ‘em?
-Is plowing under fire really a different skill set?
-Why the heck is any American in Afghanistan?
-Does Afghanistan produce anything other than sex slaves- errr, goats- and heroin?
-What else goes on that we don’t know about?
-and-
-Please, please, tell me that US troops are not helping grow poppies!

This is weird. This is complicated. I don’t get it. Maybe it is simple, tell me. So, I will just leave y’all with a couple of links to the NG ADTs:

If that’s too much for you, maybe you’d rather attend the “Virtual Diversity Conference.”

Sorry, no music… I can’t think of anything that goes with this one!

    We ned the NATIONAL GUARD back here in america to proect us from the terrorists NBPP,OWS,SEIU, and the LEFTISTS

  2. These people should be allowed to rot in the fourth world stink hole they live in. We should have gone in and viciously killed all the enemies of the US and then allowed the rest of them to enjoy their 4th century lives. Oh God, what is the matter with Americans.

  3. Lets get the hell out of there….and nuke the god damn shithole….its nothing but a god damn shithole….get out and then nuke it……

  4. “-Please, please, tell me that US troops are not helping grow poppies!”

    Ding, ding, ding… no more calls please, we have a winner!

    NGADT’s. They are also going to be on the front lines in combating ‘GLOBAL WARMING.’ (dramatic reverb effect turned on)

    While our country goes down the drain, our military is teaching goat herders how to farm in the DESERT!!!!!(more reverb)

    Remember the National Civilian Police Force that The Anointed One spoke of during the 2008 campaign? Yeah, THAT ONE.

    While the military is explaining to these cave dwellers how to maximize crop yield, the aforementioned National Civilian Police Force is mustering in the dark recesses of our Nation, and planning their conquest of the downtrodden disaffected and marginalized proletariat.

    Sleep tight America…

    • MT,

      No longer the country I grew up in… I say it is time to bring all military home and let the world know; you f%ck with us and you’ll be on your way to heaven or hell.

  5. Burn it. Burn it all.

    “Hearts and Minds” warfare at its very worst. A different war from “mine”, I guess.

  7. SPURWING PLOVER

    Let their own nations keep the peace we need peace here in america

  8. I have said it from the beginning we should have nuked them or carpet bombed them . we should have not left a single man ,woman or child living in Afghanishit.That way they cannot seek revenge.

    In a perfect world, there would be no war. In a perfect world, the $1 trillion we have spent on feeding and teaching agriculture to Africans would have worked and they would be feeding themselves. In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have assisted Iran in getting where it is and Egypt in putting the Muslim Brotherhood in place.

    I used to have an inner battle with myself with regard to whether we should intervene with other countries or not. The humanitarian part of me thought that rescuing countries from others was not simply good but compulsory. Now, I realize that there is no real sense in that and there is absolutely no sense in trying to rescue a country from ITSELF.

    Certain factions have come to the forefront in the world and they are actually making people ignorant and violent at the same time, a most dangerous combination. We can think that we’ve determined who the enemy is and we can fight them all we want but we can never make them think and therefore, behave, a certain way.

    At this juncture, I’d actually like to see us pull out of everywhere, build up our own defenses again, and let it be. The idea that America should be like missionaries, setting up camp in poor, embattled areas of the world and preach the Gospel of Democracy, is dead. They don’t want to be free, they don’t want prosperity, and they don’t want education, clearly. My heart has always gone out to my fellow man but when you hand them guns to defend themselves and they shoot you with them, it’s time to get out for good.

      CG, again, this site needs a “like” button! Sounds like you’re turning Paulian!

      Truth is, we won’t defend ourselves. Not at this stage. Never mind can or can’t.

      I don’t know, but I sense that you are fairly young, so let me clue you in on something- we are headed toward WWIII. Get ready for “disarmament.” Not a treaty, not a unilateral or bilateral program, but about 60 minutes of getting rid of our armaments. The big’uns! Portabello style.

      • Cinnamon Girl

        It would definitely surprise me if the U.S. used nuclear or other missiles on a large scale. I would be shocked if they were used for anything other than retaliation for a very, very egregious attack against our own here at home. Am I naive?

      • With all respect; What we are headed towards is right OUT of THE BOOK of REVELATION. Wake UP! READ the WORD OF G-D. All the answers are there.
        “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8;32.
        Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14;6
        To be carnally minded is death,but to be spiritualy minded is LIFE and Peace. Romans 8;6.
        Now flame away; Because I’ve already been warned about scoffers and mockers. 2 Peter 3;3.
        “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It is going to rain,’ and it does.
        And when the south wind blows you say ‘its going to be hot’,and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the aappearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don’t know how to interpret this present time? Luke 12;54-56.
        Here’s a freebie; Agenda 21= One world government.
        Bio chips = easy way to “recieve the MARK OF THE BEAST.” Just a couple of things to think about. I know most of you turned off with my first sentence. I pray thats not so.
        G-d bless you all.

  10. wouldn’t be so wasteful if we actually got some sex slaves for our effort.

    Inagada,
    Well, its another complicated issue…Mr Bush wanted to spread democracy – a bit of a high-minded goal, especially when dealing w/ certain cultures that simply don’t care about it – and he went beyond the “war on terror” to get to that point. That’s why we have “agribusiness teams” from the Nat.Guard out there. The State Dept couldn’t do it; they don’t have the means. Private business can’t, there’s no profit in it for them (unless the gov’t makes it a ‘contract’ situation…and then they’ll come out of the wood work…but who’ll guard ’em ??)….
    QED, you send the military. Always the last resort. And sometmes not the last one…

    But…the active military is kind of tied up right now. So, ok – send the Guard.
    The bottom line is its all a waste of your $$ and their time. But its also a bit of a WPA thing, in this economy. Lots of part time soldiers – “weekend warriors” – at loose ends and unemployed. Send ’em on over! and get them on the gov’t dole !

    But it won’t work. Growing a bale of hay or a bushel of corn will never reap the profit of a bag of poppy seed or whatever it is they make heroin out of. So the growers will go back to that cash crop, just as soon as the USA stops subsidizing their profits….which we should stop, immediately.

    HR
    “Get a haircut….Hippie!”

    • Inagada Davida

      HR, I thought about the “cash crop” angle… I mean, the USA wouldn’t be the USA if it weren’t for tobacco. So you’re right that it won’t work.

      As far as “… a bit of a WPA thing, in this economy. Lots of part time soldiers – “weekend warriors” – at loose ends and unemployed.” -I don’t think so… somebody correct me if I’m wrong, but being a farmer is a pretty decent business right now, ya? I mean, that’s what these guys are, productive citizens.

      • Hippie Ripper

        As you know, Ina, very few people are in the farming industry anymore, in the US…Its no longer a labor industry…
        And that leads to another funny thing – just how many of the Guard troops know anything a-tall about agrimiculture??
        They prob know less than the afghan farmers they are over there to ‘advise’…
        Its just another gov’t scheme…scam….

  12. “This is weird. This is complicated” – Inagada

    This may also be the answer… Some things just defy explanation.

  13. Hippie Ripper

    Oh yeah,
    Heres another one… http://autos.yahoo.com/blogs/motoramic/u-army-names-three-finalists-replace-humvee-5-135209870.html

    I guess its inevitable…we’ll have to come up w/ something better, sometime….but one wonders about the $$$….
