Word on the street is that the US and the Taliban may have come to a peace agreement. Which is why Republican politicians in America hate it. Why? Well, for one, because they’re horny for war (and war expenditures), but also because they’re really, really dumb.
Here’s a Defense News story that gives you the full smorgasbord of terrible quotes: https://www.defensenews.com/congress/2019/08/12/liz-cheney-republicans-voice-skepticism-on-possible-us-taliban-peace-deal/?fbclid=IwAR1p5YRIwb566foKFSXhURrdB5ZsaWBtnxpAOiIz2Q2-n3yxJlwlPdN0VJU
As a palate cleanser, we also discuss a story about how a soldier in Germany got drunk and tried to use land-navigation skills to get back to base, except he wound up on the tracks of Germany’s high-speed passenger train (don’t worry!
