Everyone in the world knows America’s invasion of Iraq was a lie, an oil raid, from day one. Everyone who stood against Bush and Cheney is dead, in jail or in hiding.
Similarly, anyone who, from day one, knew 9/11 had a “smell” about it was eliminated, down to academics, diplomats, intelligence agents, anyone who spoke up and thousands did ON 9/11.
In truth, we never knew their beliefs anyway. They began as US allies and the only reason we invaded is because they wanted too much money for the right to build oil and gas pipelines across Afghanistan.
This is what we thought. Nobody imagined that America would build 98% of the world’s heroin empire there as well, an empire that has contributed to the 15 million Americans now in prison or under some aspect of custody.
With “privatization” of that industry, keeping heroin flowing into America has two benefits, it fills private prisons, whose owners fund the GOP and it keeps laundered corporate drug cash flowing into the GOP as well through “Citizens United.”
What has the US done in Afghanistan? It is simple.
We sent in special operations personnel, who joined with organized crime, a failed oil company hack, a group of burned out former communists and set up a dictatorship while building a drug empire, staging terror attacks to blame on the Taliban.
We allowed India and Israel to run terror operations against our ally Pakistan and trucked thousands of tons of drugs into Russia. In the process, we made heroin so cheap any American child can afford addiction, one of mine did. He is dead now.
