Yankee Come Home

I found this Bill Moyers interview on Glenn Greenwald's site. The comment about the US current version of the mission in Afghanistan is particularly prescient.

...[N]ow they say we’re going to be there to build a nation – we’re not good at building other nations – we’re hardly good at building our nation. If you're an Afghani and look up and see Arnold Schwarzenegger and the California legislature coming to build your nation, you’re going to run – you’re going to put up a No Trespassing sign. We need to come home.
