AFGHANISTAN - QUAGMIRE
assassination of Vice-President Haji Abdul Qadir
signaled that their is a new phase in Afghan politics. This new phase was a loss
of the only Pashtun in high office in the new Afghan government. The Pashtun
ethnic group is beginning to feel left out of the new government and this will
cause ripples through-out southeast Afghanistan. Qadir had walked out of the
recent negotiations in Bonn, Germany because of his Pashtun loyalties, but would
later rejoin the talks not wanting to be left out entirely. The power bases of
Afghan society are still divided among the tribal system and in my opinion the
tribal system will not be able to controlled by a centralized Afghan government.
Guerilla attacks are increasing against American interests and I see no
abatement of these attacks. So I believe that a point of diminishing return has
been reached and I see increasing chaos and dangerous situations for American
troops. The oil pipeline benefits will be divided up among the tribes and little
benefit will accrue to any centralized government. In the end more radical
muslim factions will eventually reassert their authority and all foreigners
except those providing foreign aid will be out. The only reason that American
soldiers might linger on is the danger of losing the pipeline deal if all
American troops were ever ordered out.

Now some closing statements.
"Know Thy Self"
"Know Thy Thoughts"
"Know Thy World"
The first "Know Thyself" was a saying used by Socrates to teach. This saying helps one to understand their own personality and character traits so that one might be able to reform those negative traits.
The second, "Know Thy Thoughts" denotes a process of being able to observe ones thoughts as they are unfolding and how those thoughts mold one's actions.
The third "Know Thy World" is a journey of discovery of worldly things. We should endeavor to discover those systems that control us through a systemized state of debasement.
In the end we must expose and reveal truth, so we might speak for freedom, a freedom built up by a belief in God, humbling oneself, bending thy knee to a higher power and redirecting of one's soul in a new direction where worldly things are unimportant and Godly things the only path, the only way, the only direction.
In Closing remember these words:
BE GOOD TO YOURSELF AND OTHERS!
