St. Andrew Is Done With Afghanistan Now, Too

This last few weeks, it has been mildly amusing to watch Andrew Sullivan gradually step away from his earlier position that Afghanistan was where the real war was. Of course, since The One* is starting to waffle on the issue, St. Andrew has been preparing the intellectual space on his blog to accept the idea that we should get out of Afghanistan as soon as possible. He hasn't said that yet but he will just as soon as The One* says so.
Well, today in a post called, "Condie Cranks Up The Fear" there's this:

She tells Fortune magazine:

"The last time we left Afghanistan, and we abandoned Pakistan," she said, "that territory became the very territory on which Al Qaeda trained and attacked us on September 11th. So our national security interests are very much tied up in not letting Afghanistan fail again and become a safe haven for terrorists...It's that simple," she declared, "if you want another terrorist attack in the U.S., abandon Afghanistan."

Josh Marshall jumps in

The 'safe haven' argument just doesn't seem to add up. The safe havens or rather the training camps in the safe havens, where so many would-be terrorists apparently did an endless stream of calisthenics on those iconic monkey bars, were neither a necessary nor a sufficient condition for the 9/11 attacks. They were funded through too loosely guarded global financial networks, planned and organized in cities in Europe and executed right here in the USA.

Apparently, according to Andi, the existence of an unharrassed base in which to train and prepare an attack had nothing to do with the succeessful attack on 9/11. Nope, it would have been just as easy to organize the most intricate terrorist attack in history without a safe haven.

Now Andi, you've obviously been into your whacky tobaccy again today so let me try to put this in terms even you will understand:

Your writing is, due to its painful obsessions and lack of logic, a form of mental terrorism. Unharrassed, you manage to produce seemingly unlimited mounds of the fetid bullshit every day. You sitting at your desk with your typewriter and giant water bong (filled with milky loads) is similar to Al Queda and the Taliban sitting in Afghanistan with no one to annoy them. Their terrible productivity was only limited by their god-given ability.

Now, imagine a group of men kick in your door and start kicking the shit out of you. Further imagine that they tear out all your communications devices and force you into hiding in your closet.

How much fucking writing would you do then? Yeah, not much. Especially since they allowed you to keep your giant, cock-shaped milky loads bong.

So, in what fucking universe does us leaving Afghanistan NOT increase their opportunity to attack us? What magical, invisible dark-force hampers their productivity in the absence of thousands of dedicated, American military ass-kickers?

P.S. Palin still has a vagina and is happy and you still don't and aren't. Enjoy coming to our country and breaking our laws and sliding because of your connections you piece of shit. I hope every Mexican that was deported last year for drug offenses kicks you in the dick.
