What a fabulously informative segment, I am sorry I have missed the previous segments. What does Sarah think about Obama's focus on Afghanistan?

the reintroduction of corrupt and discredited political entities BACK into a "liberated society is a specialty of USA rule . It was done that way in Korea in 1949 and many other US occupations. The Soviet nations muslim or not dont seem to suffer these woes ... why is that ?

The United States should have never supported the Anti Soviet Taliban. ALL the former Soviet Muslim countries are no threat or trouble to the world, yet Pakistan and Afghanistan are? What's the OBVIOUS difference?

Corruption in Afghanistan? The selling of cases in the judicial system? Well after all isn't that what the US stands for? Free market EVERYTHING?
Let the market decide.... EVERYTHING! "Spreading the justice " like "spreading the wealth " would be socialism... corruption is just a sign of healthy free market capitalism "doin it's thing" Justice is private property.. why do you think they call it JUST (us. ;)
