The Tarbabies

Quietly, last week, the US attached itself to the central tarbaby of western civilization- Poland. For centuries Poland has been at the epicenter of disaster in foreign affairs. Traditionally incapable of governing itself, the Poles have repeatedly invited invasions and sparked wars.

As if being in Afghanistan weren't enough! Our money, supplied lavishly to terrorists and warlords in Afghanistan during the 80s, paid to destroy the elements (educated people, women, schools, clinics) that formerly made Afghanistan the most advanced society in the region. Now we're supposedly there until we make it all better. Like that's going to happen.

All that's needed now to complete the trilogy of doom is an open-ended commitment to some nation in the Balkans- right, been there, done that, got the permanent base in Macedonia and the drug-smuggling white slavers of Albania on our side. With friends like these, who needs enemies?
