Meet Our Afghan Ally: Stealing Money, Selling Heroin and Raping Boys

Just when President Barack Obama looked as if he might be railroaded into sending tens of thousands more US troops to Afghanistan the American envoy to Kabul has warned him not to do so. In a leaked cable to Washington sent last week, the US ambassador to Afghanistan, Gen Karl W. Eikenberry, argues that it would be a mistake to send reinforcements until the government of President Hamid Karzai demonstrates that it will act against corruption and mismanagement. General Eikenberry knows what he is talking about because he has long experience of Afghanistan. A recently retired three star general, he was responsible for training the Afghan security forces from 2002 to 2003 and was top US commander in Afghanistan from 2005 to 2007.

Sounds like a normal friday

Sounds like a normal friday night down at the DNC... Doesn't surprise me their foreign policy would mirror their domestic policies.

Here is the reason we are in Afghanistan...

when I first learned this everything finally made sense:

is a CFR goon. This is all smoke and mirrors.

Thank God!
And pray for our leaders' wisdom, strength, protection, guidance and courage to make righteous decisions in the face of evil.

Thanks for the post Belle

"training the Afghan security forces from 2002 to 2003 and was top US commander in Afghanistan from 2005 to 2007. "

I'm still trying to piece the puzzle together here on my end. After much thought and deliberation; I am still fluxed.

I can't for the life of me figure out why, for the past what.....20 years or so, we have been in Afghanistan or other similar nearby country's "propping up repressive regimes".

Evidence says top secret US entities go to the middle east and strategically put these governments into power. Later, these country's allegedly, and collectively turn on us in a hateful murderous manner (because we are a free people, is what we are told, not because we use the power of the CIA or FBI to bring a desired government to power within said region). In turn we launch a full scale invasion into every one of them, one by one, at a costs of many, many trillions of dollars (factoring in the full length of the war and all the details the MSM leaves out when they tell you it's costing 50 billion~ or so), and at a loss of over A MILLION human beings, (not that you would want to...but can you imagine how many dead bodies that is....unconscionable to even begin to imagine my country is responsible for this, and it quite possibly has only just begun)

What we need to figure out, rite now, not tomorrow, at any cost, is the responsible entity for being there in the first place to prop these regimes up. Next, why did they prop these regimes up?

It's my opinion that once these two question are answered, all of the other pieces to the puzzle will become clear, finally everything will start to make sense in a reasonable and logical way. We need to figure these thing's out, at any cost, else there will be a higher cost, for you and I.

Who? The Ruling Elite. Why? Power, Greed, Control

Empire, Global Dominion.

The best way to achieve support of the people for wars is by creating enemies. Just like any other "threat or crisis" they are the ones that create it in order to solve it. By "solving it" they always end up with more power,control and wealth.

The wars are not costing "them" anything ...they print the money and tax us for it! War is profitable for the ruling elite and that is why you see so many private contractors raping the treasure of the US citizens. Look who has interest in those companies and it is in thier best interest for profits to keep the war machine rolling. Follow the money and who benefits. It surely is not the soldiers, civilians and people that pay for it. As an added benefit they are able to further erode our liberties ( to keep us safe) and killing millions also helps with the population control.

Yes, there will be blowback ..but that is also a tool they use to perpetuate fear. It's a vicious, evil cycle and the whole of humanity suffers for the greed of a few.
