With all the fake uproar over the deficit and birthers and all that, it's easy to forget that there are a few wars on.

As everybody (except our feckless press) knew would happen, our latest adventure in killing brown peopleliberation is ramping up toward the seemingly inevitable long-term ground war.

Iraq continues to be a complete cluster fuck that nobody wants to talk about.

And the original forgotten war, rages on.

You'll note all those links go to The Guardian in the UK. That's obviously because the US press is moronic, inane, and vacuous.

Thankfully, there are exceptions. Believe it or not, McSweeney's has been running a great series on Afghanistan written by a US service member serving there. It paints a mostly bleak picture, but is an amazing read. Check it out: In These Deserts.
