Bovard: Bringing Freedom & Prosperity To Afghanistan

Read all of James Bovard's scathing article.

As a wise man once said to me:

One good thing about these wars -- they are sending hundreds of thousands of well-trained and completely-disillusioned-with-government combat vets our way.

Lemonade, from bitter lemons...

On the other front, 85% of the billions of dollars sent to rebuild Iraq ... is unaccounted for.

God bless WikiLeaks for taking the lid off this garbage can.
Troops are kicking in doors looking for "militia materials"? Uh oh.
Looks like no one gets the benefit of the doubt. No one was shooting, taking cover or running, yet "Light 'em all up."
The guys who enjoyed shooting people standing around, then shooting the pieces, and looking for an excuse to shoot the dying news guy again -- he MIGHT have had a pistol under his broken body, a big threat to an orbiting helicopter, as we all know, even when you're trying to hold your intestines in -- not to mention those in the van who came to help... they better not bring that attitude home.
Afghanistan and Iraq are being so mismanaged. The "good guys" we're backing are nothing of the kind. Big Brother needs perpetual war.

Corruption, money, murder. This is Viet Nam all over again. The only thing missing is Air America muling heroin out of the Golden Triangle. And, the biggest fear is "disillusioned combat veterans" coming home and going to work for Blackwater or F-Troop.

Thanks to Brock for the link. Excellent material.
These soldiers can't cope with the fact that they know they are doing wrong, and yet the stupid among them ridicule them for questioning this. Why do we have the highest suicide rate in all of history from this war? We need more soldiers and Marines to stand up and speak the truth of all the death and corruption they see every day, and put an end to our gov't invasions.
For those of you unfamiliar with Gen. Smedley Butler USMC, please read his book "War is a Racket". Even 100 yrs ago he says he was just a muscleman for American corporate interests and in the 1920's he stood guard for Rockafellar Oil in China. Nothing has changed and we must stop sending our youth off to die for corporate greed.
And that doesn't begin to account for the needless civilian deaths we have brought upon these nations. No wonder they hate us so much. Not that long ago the world loved and envied the U.S., now they despise us as Murder, Inc.
As Defender said too, look at the 'lost' money and corruption that comes from this. We don't try to hide it anymore, and the public doesn't even care. Hard earned tax dollars thrown down a bottomless well to feed contractors and foreign bribes.
At least some of our soldiers are waking up and seeing through all the patriotic bullshit and flag waving. They are just pawns for big business. The rest of the country now needs to see the truth. But even most of them don't want the truth either. Living the lie is the American way.

This is the problem when empire reaches too far. Young men struck by a wave of post 9-11 patriotism join the military and unwittingly becoming the tool of the New World Order, socialist, globalist elite. Perpetual war for perpetual peace is the future.

So many mighty empires before have failed in the harsh barren wilds that are Afghanistan. Democracy and Republican form of government to these tribes is un-heard of and untenable.

The soldiers come home bitter, disillusioned and cynical... or they come home and become cops with military methods and training to inflict their new found manner of "insurgency elimination" here in the home land.

The war profiteers make their wealth on the suffering of innocents. The pawns are played and quite expendable.

Who are you going to serve? Truth or the merchants of death.

Defender is mistaken with "Afghanistan and Iraq are being so mismanaged."

This is no mistake, this is part of The Plan.

Huge events like the US military fighting multi-decade wars overseas is advancing the objectives of the Puppet Master Global Elite. Each big step is happening well-enough. The USA is becoming a police State, a failed State, perhaps even a former State (although even Mugabe's Zim survived hyperinflation).

Their error is in believing that they can sufficiently insulate themselves from the unintended consequences.

1. They have to be here in the first place. If this Iran/Pakistan war jumps off, guess what-they're dead.

2. The enemy knows the vets are a threat and so does their utmost to wreck their health in the sandbox, excascerbate their condition with the VA, and generally tries to disarm them for... whatever reason.

3. Those that are too stupid to know better or are/have become demons are given promotions, become mercenaries or when they're out of service become your town's newest heroes... you know the one that shoots your dog when they do a dynamic entry for a bogus pot warrant or beats up on your scrawny 10 year old kid for skateboarding or if they like a challenge join a urban police department for that n*gger hunting license.

They all need to self-evacuate from there...

I've been watching the domestics send good American men to wars since I was born and none have been worth the cost since 1950.. all they have accomplished is to deplet our nation of the blood and genes from the cream of the crop in every generation and leave our nation to be run by the pussbags and degenerates presently poisoning our nation from its core.. All those wars have accomplished is to weaken our nation by destroying the warrior class nations depend on for their survival and empower the corrupt and illegitimate to move in and take their places.. we have no business sending men to war while not giving them free reign to succeed and come home victorious but we chose instead to allow our enemies to regulate how we will conduct ourselves while the quisling guards of our enemies reign over our soldiers with rules and threats of punishments for imagined violations.. Yes, our men will come home disillusioned but they will be just as disillusioned with us for allowing them to be abused as they will be with the domestics who abused them.

You said "the only thing missing was Air America muling heroin...."
You are wrong. That is the main reason we are in Afghanistan. Do you have any idea how many alphabet goons are working there? Since Vietnam, the CIA has learned that dope is the greatest source of FREE money in the world. We send in narco teams(DEA,etc) to seize illegal drugs and then turn around and sell said illegal drugs on the black market in exchange for other goods. Steal and sell=FREE. The drug fiasco going on over there is beyond comprehension, many CIA agents themselves became drug lords following Vietnam.
Take a good serious look at Afghanistan. Have we made any huge, planned operations to find and finish the Taliban or even Bin Laden? Fuck no! We keep this small military presence driving around in their convoys, going over the same roads for years on end, acting as IED magnets, and even stage a small operation now and then to make it look like we are trying to do something. It's a front for war. The main reason is drugs and if we pull out, the Chinese become the new corner drug dealer. Along with all the mining interests we are keeping the Chinese from acquiring. They have been scarfing up every mining claim they can locate. This isn't about the Taliban, it's about drugs and mining. Do a little homework and you'll see where this is all going. Yup, Wall Street and the banks again.

You may know that Oklahoma City federal building bomber Timothy McVeigh was part of Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf's elite protection unit during the first Gulf War.
What did he see and hear and know, that made him do what he did?
Hi, pdxr. I should have said "sabotaged" or "intentionally mismanaged." Even the most gross incompetence couldn't explain ALL THIS.
I can't wait to see what the Saudis -- the origin of the Wahabist 9/11 hijackers -- do with the billions of dollars in fighter jets our government is selling them.

The Afghan opium trade has GROWN by 200%, last report I saw, since we went in.
A win-win for BigGov. They get the profits PLUS they get to tighten the thumbscrews on liberty because "we're losing the War on Drugs!"
