We’ve now spent more not rebuilding Afghanistan after an undeclared war than we did rebuilding Europe after something widely known as World War II. In inflation-adjusted dollars.

Seems like something good could have been done with that money. Like rebuilding Europe after we destroyed it with a banking crisis. Or heck, just rebuilding the long-neglected infrastructure here in the US. Or having universal health-care.

Also, the NSA has broken the internet. Not unreasonably, since the NSA has shown that it will hack hardware to install a backdoor, or simply issue a NSL to have the company do it in hardware or software, China is demanding to see the source code from any company wanting to do business there. I’m sure this works out to China’s advantage and they’re working it for all they’re worth, but the NSA gave them the hammer and took off their shoe and said there’s the big toe.
