Get to D. Chopra

Setting aside the trademark question-begging and grotesque solipsism, this column echoes many of my own thoughts on the subject.

America’s “war of necessity,” whether you agree with that or not, has disrupted a society that was already deeply traumatized and divided. Afghanistan is incredibly poor and fatally unstable. We are rich and stable in comparison. If this conflict can be conducted in such a way that the Afghans are helped toward a minimal stability and put on anything like the right path to security, don’t we owe it to them?

So it looks like I’ve been in favor of continued military involvement in Afghanistan for reasons more or less identical to those espoused by Deepak Chopra.

Precipitous withdrawal it is, then!

That is one huge “if” there. Not that I’ve ever heard of a conflict being conducted toward stability. He’s really a piece of work, isn’t he?

So, no offense Mann, but did you get a severe beatdown by a roving band of New Agers wielding spirit crystals back in the day or something?  Cause you really seem to have it in for our boy Deepak…
