Forgotten by the media--
subsequently, too, from the public view--
Afghanistan, that war torn country
of the year past.

Still trying to recover and fight the militias.
Our troops still in there too,
being shot at by rag-tag infantry,
of the old regime.

Our government, to our chagrin,
not living up to its promises to
Afghanistan, that war torn country,
of helping the government adjust.

Forgotten by the media,
they are not forcing the issue as they usually do
for our government not to defy
its pledged support.

To be frank enough, I hate your war-thirsty government. I feel it as a Monster which is a blood monger. Morals and Ethics are the words which are not in their dictionary.

Islamic Two-Headed Beast by Will Clark

Radical Islamists loudly proclaim they will destroy America - and Israel. Should we not believe them? Should we not stop their evil plans?..
