Yesterday President Obama gave the go ahead on a US Marine offensive into Helmand province south of Afghanistan, which is a Taliban hotbed. Weeks prior the President launched an equally bold offensive here in the United States a hotbed of anti-national health care forces. Mr. President be sure and read the history of LBJ's tenure as President and the mistake he made decades earlier after launching his Great Society initiative. President Johnson became entrenched in a war in Vietnam and the resources and attention needed to accomplish his noble Great Society policy became diverted to supporting a corrupt and undemocratic government in South Vietnam. Some say that parts of the government in Afghanistan and Pakistan are similarly problematic and unfit to receive U. S. foreign aid without sending a forensic accountant attached to it.
