Stand with The Libertarian Institute

The Empire has us on the brink of nuclear Armageddon. The central bank has us flirting with economic-social collapse. Americans are increasingly paranoid of one another and simultaneously invested in wielding the state against one another.

The voices of the establishment are legion. The voices of dissent are few. Make your stand for liberty by supporting The Libertarian Institute today.

5 More Years in Afghanistan

by | Feb 28, 2019

Dang. Thomas Gibbons-Neff says the Khalilzad deal will be to keep troops in Afghanistan for 5 more years, under the “Biden plan” for limited “counter-terrorism” and training missions while calling a truce with the Taliban and integrating them into the Kabul government.

Fer Chrissakes. Why even bother with this charade at all? The Taliban are supposed to agree to this? I don’t believe they will.

The war is lost. Just forget it and end U.S. involvement there now.

Update: Wait. 2019. Five years. That’s 2024. Where have I heard that before?
