Can't even the most naive who knows only the last ten years of American history conclude the Inspector General of the U.S. is pulling a fast one on you?
Didn't we go into Afghanistan following 911 to 'fight terrorism', destroy Al Qaeda, and get bin Laden? That's what we were led to believe by our government and media. [whether the terrorists came here because we're over there is another matter].
But, were those really the objectives of our invasion of another sovereign country which posed no threat to our national security?
On the other hand, seeing that we are going to have US troops in Afghanistan (and elsewhere) for "extended stays" we believe our presence is to ensure the security and profitable cultivation of opium for the criminal corporate drug cartel. Afterall, aren't our troops going into these non-threatening countries and continents to grab the resources for our corporate and banking cabalists - - it certainly appears so to this 'deductive reasoner'. "Fighting terrorism" is a lie that is slipping away from rational belief, but US taxpayers still get the protection bill for "defense".
Inspector General Warns that with Opium Production Skyrocketing, Afghanistan Could become "a Narco-Criminal State"
Saturday, January 18, 2014
“The people I spoke with in Afghanistan in my last few trips talked about two possible outcomes following the 2014 transition in Afghanistan: a successful modern state, or an insurgent state. However, there is a third possibility: a narco-criminal state. Absent effective counternarcotics programs and Afghan political will to seriously tackle this grave problem, that third outcome may become a reality.”
