The war in Afghanistan was planned long before 9/11, that war and Iraq too, wars were planned we haven’t even started yet and certainly will never live to finish.  War is a business and creating war, manufacturing reasons for war including staging acts of terrorism and promoting worldwide strife is seen by “insiders” as “business as usual.”

If you wonder why those who start wars never fight them, why their children never fight them and why everyone around them grows rich and fat from war, you haven’t been paying attention.  There is nothing to wonder about.

Today, an Afghan pilot killed 9 of his NATO allies.  This story is a breaking one as is the announcement of the musical chairs in Washington’s “land of deceit,” Panetta going to DOD and Petraeus to CIA.  These two stories and every other one, from the spurious collection of “cherry picked” and, as we now learn again, censored Wikileaks, to the endless reports, scares and conspiracies that pour into our heads the second we choose to expose ourselves to any type of media, these stories are worse than any narcotic.

Drinking poison would be safe, perhaps healthier too.

After 10 years in Afghanistan, nobody is really asking why we are there, we simply pick up the body bags and deliver the cash.  I am told we haul out tons of heroin in the process, but we can let that go for now.  The devastation of the drug trade that the corrupt press is told to blames on the Taliban, an idiotic assertion to anyone with common sense, is a minor issue.  This year, that “minor issue” will generate $80 billion dollars in revenue.  The Afghan heroin trade has its own air force and, most important of all, may be one of the largest banking and investment firms in the world, centered in Zurich, Dubai, Tel Aviv and New York.

Imagine that people are supposed to believe the Taliban do this?

This week, while Wikileaks is telling us that “terrorists” have hidden a nuclear weapon in Europe somewhere, set to go off at any time and has reconfirmed the usual rubbish, chickenfeed and carefully ‘seeded’ war mongering, congress has been discussion billions stolen by military contracting firms. (Intelligence reports indicate that the nuclear threat is greatest at airports managed by a company called ICTS.  Heathrow was mentioned.)

Don’t mistake the former soldiers working for these firms as at fault.  In fact, most of these firms were created specifically to bilk the government out of money, set up by political types, staffers, party officials and big contributors as conduits for fraud.

If you are wondering why you didn’t see this story in the papers or on television, you aren’t the only one.  It is a story, not only of theft but of cover-up as well.  How much is missing?  By 2005, the official figure was nearly $300 billion.  With the nation tearing itself apart over $75 million for Planned Parenthood, money primarily spent for cancer screening and prenatal care for the poor, well, you see where this is going.  America’s infant mortality rate is heading for “3rd world’ status while $300 billion, probably much more than that, sits in foreign banks, laundered through the offshore corporations that have been outsources to handle the spurious “War on Terror.”

The question isn’t just theft, it’s that nobody seems to care.  From the Press TV report:

The commission discovered that billions of dollars are missing, misspent, or defrauded by private contractors in Afghanistan, and questioned why companies caught cheating the US taxpayer have not been barred from doing business with the government, the Press TV correspondent in Washington reported on Monday.

So you say, “This very important story was reported and told very well.”  Yes, you are right.  However, are you aware that it was reported only in Iran?  Press TV is Iran.  What else is Iran telling the truth about?  Perhaps, is that why they are being called an “enemy?”  Oh, they have a nuclear program that is a threat against Israel, you say?  Really?  Now where did you read that?  See where this is going?


Some people called Korea “The Forgotten War.”  If ever the was ever a war the American people have forgotten, it is Afghanistan.  Many reasons were given for attacking Afghanistan.  Our current Wikileak is still selling the fiction of Al Qaeda and bin Laden, inventions of the collective psyches of Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and the gang at Project for a New American Century.

Others talk about Karzai and his connection to oil companies and gas pipelines and still more tire more every day of seeing photographs of American Marines walking through poppy fields, supposedly funding Taliban terrorism. Do note how carefully the Marines step, under threat of punishment if they damage leaf or stem.  But even opium wasn’t a reason but rather a side benefit.


Why did we attack Afghanistan?

The answer is simple.

Afghanistan is the worst place on earth to fight a war with the best trained and best armed citizens in the world, a people who would die before surrendering to a foreign power.

Bush and his cabal of criminals walked in there, put “Karzai incorporated” into power, the “Mayor of Kabul” and, ever since, it has been a given.  America will lose, just as Russia and Britain before them.  Nobody has beaten Afghanistan.

America has no vital interest there, there was no other reason than to start a war that was accepted from day one to be permanent, a meatgrinder that would create a backdrop for fascism at home, an endless stream of caskets returning to Dover Air Force Base and a minor distraction to keep the military busy.

After all, the Pentagon needs somewhere to play, somewhere to give out medals, somewhere to hide crimes, somewhere to kidnap and torture the innocent, somewhere to live out the sick fantasies that seem to affect so many that love flags and love uniforms but hate the world so much.

    Netanyahu Calls for “Coalition of the Willing” Against Iran
    April 20, 2010 • 11:33AM

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for “crippling sanctions” against Iran. Speaking on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Netanyahu raved that the Iranian nuclear program was “the biggest issue facing our times.” While calling for a ban on selling refined petroleum products to Iran, he demanded that if such sanctions can’t be passed by the United Nations, then a “coalition of the willing” be formed.

    Lyndon LaRouche, on hearing this, responded: “What a…. I don’t want to call him an asshole, since some ass holes may serve a useful function.”

    Now that Bin Laden has been killed and security against terrorism attacks in the US has improved, if you are wrong about the reason for invading afghanistan, our troops there should be returned and the money saved to further improve security of our borders and people. I don’t pretend to understand world politics, but I think it is interesting that European countries seldom initiate military action during the last couple of decades.

    well said. ppl overlook the fact that there’s a war for mind control which is succeeding quite well especially against most American families. What is being taught at schools from gradeschool and beyond should be scrutinized but instead we let it slide since it’s ‘free’ education – and beggers can’t be choosers right? We are failing tremendously with our youth – do you see how many come to audition for American Idol? Nobody it seems wants to work for anything and would just like to catch their big break and that’s whats preventing our people from getting involved in issues that matter; everyone is out for their piece of the pie and now more than ever are people willing to give up their freedom for a quick buck – and it’s only getting worse.

    Must we mention the Merhav Group every time out? ( They’re a Mossadnik consortium that owns much of the nat gas in Turkmenistan and demanded that TAPI pipeline )..Must we mention all the contractors that have gotten rich off of Afghanstn and Iraq? Halliburton, KBR, Bechtel? Must we mention Unocal’s unsuccessful negotiations with the Taliban? Etc, etc…Gordon is just pre-supposing that you already have the kind of background knowledge you should have…

    Since WWII all wars, including WWII have been created based on the world economy…which is in the control of the one world elites…Nothing is “just happening” all the uprisings, chaos, riots and wars…have been planned that way..Since and before WWII.

    Gordon Duff in 1998 I told friends in Texas and California that the neocons headed
    by Zionist mentor will succeed in creating a new order in America.Some believed others just shrugged their shoulders.When Joe Liebermann stood as Gore’s Vice most
    thought that he would enforce the new order.But When Cheney put his arm over GWB’s
    shoulder we knew the detonators had been set for explosions across the world.Three
    places which came to mind were Afghanistan connecting to Pakistan,Iraq to Iran and
    Sudan to Libya.With Panetta being handed the mop for the Pentagon and Paetreus at
    Bush Center with his broom I can imagine the storm drains bursting in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    … and this will “fix” the system? Will you be able to vote for the man or woman you want? Or will you only be allowed to select “one of the above,” those few selected ones whom you are offered when you a walk into the polls, just as you do today?

    The demolition of twin center was also planned long before, since they both contained toxic materials and had to be decommissioned ( the same toxic material that first help responders are dying from ) it would of course had cost millions if done properly, instead they just used their Al Qaeda buddies and used the hall incident as an emotional catalyst to get the public support for the long planned wars, and to scam insurances companies ( the scam of the century, i like how Silverstein sued the insurance and got payed twice )

    Another delivery of unvarnished truth! I have not been following for awhile but can see you are still kicking ass! Too bad that most Americans are too caught up in the govt. lies and subterfuge and frankly, I fear, too dumb or uncaring to do anything about it.

    Oh yeah…I guess we finally got the culprits behind most of the nations problems…Wisconsin teachers.

    War is a Racket and Afghan has but one purpose, to slowly drain the US Economy like it has done of every nation who has went to that God forsaken place.

    With Iraq, the Criminal Wall Street gang, National Security spending and the soon Stock Market bubble will put the final nail in the coffin.

    Will the American’s be brave enough to not take the world currency alternative from GOD himself the IMF. Because we know how central banks stabilized the economy… right!

    Gordon, do an article on Jesse’s appearance on that idiotic morning show they have on Fox..Jesse played it a little too nice, it seems. Are those the ground rules going in? He showed more patience than that guy deserved..He should have simly sd; the supposed hijackers didn’t turn off the transponders on the 4 planes-it takes multiple classified access codes to do that..The Muslims didn’t control demo 3 towers in lower Manhattn…the Muslims didn’t make Flt 77 disappear, Army Spec April Gallop was blown fm her desk when the missile hit the Pentagon, she grabbed her injured baby and crawled through the hole created by the missile and didn’t see any wreckage of a 767..Does that douche-bag on Fox know more than Spec Gallop? At the end he should have sd Mossad/Mossad asset/rogue CIA false-flag terror op…CASE CLOSED!

    The new technology was supposed to lead to increased leisure time and a more creative life for everyone. The only ones with the leisure time now are those out of work and on the breadline. Once upon a time a family had one breadwinner. The whole thing is by design. Wages are deliberately suppressed so that we are all enslaved. Who else would they get to empty their bins?

    Thank you.

    Well, too bad we can’t arrest all the PNAC (fdd) signatories and put them all on trial!

    What a scam being played on Americans…. Just bend over Americans and take it! (sorry if that is heavily worded but we are being gang raped by these lunatics!)…, All this money could have provided so much for US citizens but the 50 or so lunatics who decide for Americans decided to attack Afghanistan (and iraq) and send all our jobs to India(maybe they like India because their god is not christian or muslim??) not to mention the trillion $ handouts to banksters (in a country that hates handouts) while regular government employees have to take furlough days.

    Afghan blood was used to rid the world of soviet communism and this is what we do to return the favor… We are the new soviet union! And one last thing it would seem that most of these wars are on Muslims but Christian Americans have been just as much victim as Muslims.. Just turn on the tv to see what perverted crap is force fed your children and how terrible their education is, whose taking yer homes people and making u work 60hr weeks just to make ends meet when we have email and file servers that should have made work easier then it was 20yrs ago? Do you think Muslims in Muslim countries get on airplanes and have to worry about shoe bombers? let’s just blame it all on mexicans….. Sorry if I got carried away and this sounds like an annoying rant but damn how can we be so dumb! Spread the word to yer neighbors!

    I think the slickest hustle of them all, and I`m sure they laugh about it all the time, was putting someone with dual citizenship in charge of our “Homeland Security”. It would be very nice if we could get all these “dual” nationals out of our government. Loyalty to America should be #1, not loyalty to israel.

  26. george beres  April 27, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    Best way to minimize the unlawful platform of the rich in our society is to begin FULLY public-financed election campaigns. Then the bribery money will be taken out of the equation for sucked-in candidates. It also will take away from Israel the means of “legally” bribing candidates.
