But that isn’t the only reason for revisiting this highly unusual raid.Signed May 2, 2012, the BSA dictates rules and “laws” of conduct pertaining to U.S. assistance with the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) af [...]

sgtreport.com
Yeah, this kind of thing sure is hard to figure. Why would not an Afghan farmer with 8 kids to feed not want to grow the usual vegetables and earn maybe $50 a month when he can grow opium poppies for the local warlord with US military connections for $500 a month? Yep, sure beats hell outta me. /sarc/off [...]

Is the War in Afghanistan Really Over?
feedproxy.google.com
Joshua KrauseActivist PostOn February 15th, 1989 Soviet General Boris Gromov stoically walked across the Afghan-Uzbek  border, as camera crews filmed the momentous event. He was the last Soviet officer to leave Afghanistan, marking an official end to a nine-year war that had killed nearly 15,000 soldiers, and had drained the coffers of a crumbling communist regime. While it was a somewhat dignified end to the bloody quagmire, nobody had any illusions as to what this meant for Russia. [...]

The war inside the war in Afghanistan
feedproxy.google.com
image sourceJon RappoportActivist PostWell, there are several wars inside the war in Afghanistan. Ensuring the flow of opium to the world. Having US bases close to Russia. Protecting and gobbling up vast mineral reserves. Keeping alive the proposed oil pipeline. Still another war is quite different. It’s a test program, through which the US Armed Forces is trying to obtain a biometric record of every human living in Afghanistan. It doesn’t take a genius to connect the dots, to realize the pr [...]

The Corporate Colonization of Afghanistan
feedproxy.google.com
Ulson GunnarActivist PostA recent TIME Magazine article featured the “US NGO” Roots for Peace, which it portrayed as a victim of a regrouping Taliban bent on subjugating a newly “democratized” Afghanistan. This organization, funded by the US State Department and USAID, claims to be turning “battlefields into bountiful orchards.” But a lack of transparency makes it unclear as to just how they are doing this. With USAID using “aid” to usher in the corporate colonization of Afghanis [...]

Failure to Withdraw: The CIA, the Taliban, and the Strategy of Tension in Afghanistan

Of course, NATO does not measure the outcome of its mission by reasonable standards. They have their own entirely different yardstick by which they gauge their operations, and by that standard, the Afghan war has been an unqualified success. Find out about NATO's interest in Afghanistan and why they are working with the Taliban to make sure that [...]
