The Department of Defense has announced that the US is now going to begin arming and supplying the so-called “anti-Taliban factions.” And I had to laugh because this is the same policy that’s gotten us into trouble before – arming today’s “freedom fighters” who become tomorrow’s “terrorists.” That’s how we created “Osama bin Laden” and now we’re doing it again. We consistently do this under some vain hope that we can control these factions. It never happens. Every faction we have ever armed in the days when they were the “freedom fighters,” later turned around and fought us. The United States fails to appreciate the fact that this is an area with over two hundred factions, all of whom are hostile to each other, none of whom have been able to make an alliance stick for more than three minutes.
