Part of the problem with the UN is the fact that the world's largest most powerful nations have veto power because they have their tentacles spread out into countries around the world because of economic interests.

So like in the case of Syria now, even though the majority of the worlds nations may want greater intervention, because of Russia's interests there is nothing effectively being done.

I'm pretty sure it is this statement in the article that MF was referring to...

The decision to wage war in Afghanistan for more than a decade is the most obvious element of this new strategy...
Nothing "new" here. The Libs got us into Afghanistan and voted in favour of every extension while in opposition...

so one sentence about the war in Afghanistan = the entire focus of an article on creating foreign bases??

talk about cherry picking. the point of the article was not about Afghanistan. not even close.

Well it kind of discredits the credibility of the author when he states:

Which is completely inaccurate at every level... it is a false argument...

It makes it seem like his research is decidedly lacking and he was doing a fair bit of "cherry picking" of his own... looking for the most sour cherries he could find and if they weren't sour enough he was capable of "souring" some with a little extra vinegar, just enough to suit his tastes.
