Big Day

Whoa. Today was a big day. HUGE.

First, the stimulus bill was signed into law (finally!) yay!


Second, we're awaiting the President's announcement on sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan.

Personally, I'm in favor of this. We created a mess in Afghanistan and then basically abandoned it to create a bigger mess in Iraq. Afghanistan touches too many countries that we depend on and its ability to house terrorrists is too great for us to keep ignoring the instability there. Not to mention that the Afghan people are seriously suffering because of our neglect and its going to get worse.

For more on Afghanistan, you can check out the most recent issue of the Middle East Bulletin, a progressive Middle East publication that I work for and happen to think is awesome.
