Secret U.S. Military Report – The Taliban Is Set To Retake Afghanistan

The very word 'secrecy' is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings.  -- John F. Kennedy

A free society can never be free with a secret government.   Instead, our republican government is replaced by the motives of the state.   Shouldn’t a free society be informed of the issues so that it can make the appropriate decisions?  Shouldn’t this report have been available to the American people rather than reading that it was leaked on a foreign news source?  The empire and its endless secrecy is crumbling.   That will eventually be good news for democracy.

The war state spends more in air conditioning in Afghanistan and Iraq than the budget of civilian space program NASA.

The mounting cost of war.  (These are hard numbers.  There are no costs of loss of life either civilian or military or many other factors.  As we cited on here before, the real number is substantially larger.  It is now most likely approaching $4 trillion.)

When your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail……

The republican is the only form of government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind. – Thomas Jefferson
