    Afghanistan

    Despite our noble intentions there, I think we need to end our combat operations in Afghanistan. This is a compelling piece on that subject. Thoughts? (Maybe Ma’ake and I can agree on this!)

    "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
    --Antoine de Saint-Exupery

    "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold."
    --Yeats

    “True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”

    --John W. Davis, founder of Davis Polk & Wardwell

    This is my biggest issue with Obama. He initially campaigned on getting out of Afghanistan, then added more troops when he got elected. Get the $!*#? out of that country.
