Gore Vidal On The Sad Skidmark in the Pants of the World, Kwanstainia

Yet now, he says, it is clear the American experiment has been "a failure". It was all for nothing. Soon the country will be ranked "somewhere between Brazil and Argentina, where it belongs." The Empire will collapse militarily in Afghanistan; the nation will collapse internally when Obama is broken "by the madhouse" and the Chinese call in the country's debts. A ruined United States will then be "the Yellow Man's Burden", and "they'll have us running the coolie cars, or whatever it is they have in the way of transport".

Tex, although Gore Vidal may be right about this, for me he's a hypocrite. He's spoken on various interviews how being the offspring a family which had members in the Senate, granted him insider info to the real reasons of America's engagement in WWII and how Pearl Harbor was a false flag attack. He even said "Everyone knew that". Back then because the Left opposed America's entrance to the war, he opposed it as well. But when the Left later saw it as a good thing because "Hitler had to be stopped", he changed accordingly. Justifying the sacrifice of the few who died in Pearl Harbor for a "greater good". I take everything he says with a grain of salt.

Afganistan would be one of the best locations in the world to isolate an military force, cut their supply routes and totally annihilate them very quickly without too many people finding out.
