The invasion of the middle east is what's called a classic "cluster fuck." We have such a gigantic mess over there nobody can even come up with anything like a solution to the mess we've made. This is why my country shames me. That our citizenry can support such an absurd recreant act by electing the president who did it to a second term is cause for hang-your-fucking-head shame.
Go ahead you ignorant moronic proles. . . vote another corpo-fascist republican into the White House.
4 Marines die in Afghanistan; 870 inmates escape
By NOOR KHAN and JASON STRAZIUSO, Associated Press Writers
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan - About 870 prisoners escaped during a Taliban bomb and rocket attack on the main prison in southern Afghanistan that knocked down the front gate and demolished a prison floor, Afghan officials said Saturday. And in western Afghanistan on Saturday, a roadside bomb exploded near a U.S. military vehicle, killing four Americans in the deadliest attack against U.S. troops in the country this year, officials said. . . .
The bombing comes one day after U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates told his counterparts in Europe that for the first time, the monthly total of American and allied combat deaths in Afghanistan exceeded the toll in Iraq during May.
