    Just the latest development on the incident...can we please just leave? Loss of two US soldiers is sickening. How are we supposed to work with these kinds of people? And thats something that should have been apparent even without something like this...I have heard nothing or read anything that makes me believe that these people are willing to change to make their country a better one. Still firmly believe that our presence there won't change anything in the long run...

    Read it when it came out. Kennedy has some good points but I don't quite buy that its military expenditures that's driving us to rack and ruin right now. It is a good read though and I'm sure some folks will agree with him.
