Moore is right

He’s wrong about capitalism, but right about getting out of Afghanistan

30 years ago this past Thursday (Thanksgiving) the Soviet generals had a cool idea — “Let’s invade Afghanistan!” Well, that turned out to be the final nail in the USSR coffin.

There’s a reason they don’t call Afghanistan the “Garden State” (though they probably should, seeing how the corrupt President Karzai, whom we back, has his brother in the heroin trade raising poppies). Afghanistan’s nickname is the “Graveyard of Empires.” If you don’t believe it, give the British a call. I’d have you call Genghis Khan but I lost his number. I do have Gorbachev’s number though. It’s + 41 22 789 1662. I’m sure he could give you an earful about the historic blunder you’re about to commit.

    Moore is an idiot with money and an opinion. Judging by the content of his movies, it also apparent he should use some of that money to buy an education.

    Who the hell cares about what Moore says?

      That isn’t an argument, is it? You wouldn’t have commented if you hadn’t cared, either way? His argument is correct, this time. That’s all that matters.
