Happy Entire Decade of Failed U.S. War In Afghanistan

Of course, the utterly random Afghanistan Occupation has been ahugesuccess for the military contractors from Blackwater to Pepsi, and a massive WIN for the death-machine & drone industry. And we guess it has given otherwise unemployable youth something to do with their time, and also it's been good for the global slavery business and opium trade. So, uh, bright side?

Oh yeah, how are the Afghan People thanking us for freedom today? Let's see, there's a video youtube clip somewhere around this browserWHICH IS SWIMMING IN DELIRIOUS/CALMING COLOR SWIRLS... uhh:
