SORT BY Relevancy
So a few weeks ago, I mentioned a highly troubling document I found online. I have sat on this document, debating upon sharing it. With all the present-day confusion as to what is Real Afrikan Spirituality and what is not, I have now been moved to share this document and also discuss its present-day ramifications, esp. for those pursuing liberation down a specifically Afrikan Centered Pathway.
THIS DOCUMENT NOR THIS TALK IS/WILL BE A JOKE!!!
The document is linked below for all listeners to have in their personal archives.
ALL THE b.s. THAT HAS BEEN TOUTED AS REAL AFRIKAN SPIRITUALITY should go away after a proper listening to this show!

The way things are going in Iraq and Afghanistan, the prospects for lasting victory are fading with worse long-term consequences than Vietnam. The human cost of the Vietnam War was far greater than it has been in Iraq and Afghanistan, but I choose to believe that our warriors did not die in vain in Vietnam because we ultimately won the Cold War of which the wars in Korea and Vietnam were part. Still, we lost the Vietnam War and suffered lasting consequences as a result. What's at stake in the Middle East is greater than what was at stake in Vietnam.

Counterinsurgency Training Center - Afghanistan is the only school training Afghan National Security Force coalition forces and civilians in the same class. There are also residential courses as well as mobile training teams. Through these courses students learn about counterinsurgency operations and stability operations/stability assistance.
So, which is it? Do we forget our history and are therefor doomed to repeat it, or are we always preparing to fight the next war?
As we finish up the final chapter of our participation in Afghanistan after well over a decade, and reflect on the changes in the arch of the Muslim world from the Atlas mountains to Mindanao - what do we need to intellectually, retain for what is coming "next?"
With one eye on historical patterns and another on developing economic, demographic, and political trends - what do we need to do to man, train, and equip the armed forces best positioned to address what we think we will face, but will be flexible enough to flex to what we don't know?

The United States has fought three counterinsurgency wars in the past half century, all of which have or are about to turn out less than resoundingly victorious. You would think America would get the hang of counterinsurgency warfare, getting it right eventually; but there are lessons American political leaders never learn.
What is the significance of this new Argentine Pope? How could this humble and simple man from Buenos Aires (Jorge Mario Bergoglio) the impact Pope John Paul II had on world affairs? It’s difficult to imagine President Barack Obama and Pope Francis working in tandem against today’s threats.
Lieutenant Colonel John Lewis Cook, United States Army (Retired), “served as the Senior Advisor to the Ministry of Interior in Kabul, Afghanistan, with responsibility for developing the force structure for the entire Afghan National Police. As of 2012, this force totals 157,000. From March 2008 until August 2012, his access and intimate associations with all levels of the Afghan government and coalition forces have provided him with an unprecedented insight into the policies which will determine the outcome of the war. It is this insight, coupled with his contacts and associations throughout Afghanistan that form the basis of Afghanistan: The Perfect Failure.
John Cook graduated with a B.A. from the University of Delaware & has a Master’s Degree from Boston University. He is considered an expert in counterinsurgency, having written doctrine on this subject for the US Army Intelligence Center & School. He is the recipient of the Silver Star, 3 Bronze Stars, the Purple Heart, Legion of Merit, Meritorious Service Medal, Vietnamese Medal of Honor and several other combat and peacetime awards..
John Cook is not new to war zones. In addition to 4 1/2 years in Afghanistan, he spent over 2 years in Vietnam as an intelligence officer & became the youngest District Senior Advisor in Vietnam. He was one of the first intelligence officers in Vietnam responsible for the implementation of the Phoenix Program, the most successful counterinsurgency program ever initiated by the U.S. military. Upon his return from Vietnam, he authored The Advisor: The Phoenix Program in Vietnam, recognized as one of the premier texts on defeating insurgences, now in its third edition. He has served as the publisher and editor for the Vietnam and Gulf War Veterans Journal.
Interview w/COL Daniel S. Roper, Director, U.S. Army and Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Center
in Self Help
In his book Funding The Enemy, award-winning, independent journalist Douglas A. Wissing makes the case that with the vague intention of winning hearts and minds in Afghanistan, the US government has mismanaged billions of development and logistics dollars, bolstered the drug trade and dumped untold millions into Taliban hands. Wissing's vivid narrative takes the reader down to ground level in frontline Afghanistan. It draws on the voices of hundreds of combat soldiers, ordinary Afghans, private contractors, aid workers, international consultants and government officials. From these contacts it became very clear, as the author details, that US taxpayer dollars have been flowing into Taliban coffers, courtesy of scandalously mismanaged US development and counterinsurgency programs, to calamitous military and social effect. This is the first book to detail the toxic embrace between American policymakers and careerists, Afghan kleptocrats and opportunistic Taliban. The result? US taxpayers have been funding both sides of the disastrous Afghanistan War. Join us live or send your thoughts and comments ahead of time to email@example.com
