I’m not going to add anything, I’ve been saying what this video, and the series Robert Greenwald is putting together for eight damn years, and I haven’t been alone!!

Rethink Afghanistan (Part 6): Security


The war in Afghanistan is increasing the likelihood that American civilians will be killed in a future terrorist attack.

Part 6 of Rethink Afghanistan, Security, brings you three former high-ranking CIA agents to explain why.

There is no “victory” to be won in Afghanistan. It is the most important video about U.S. Security today.

    6 US troops die in Afghanistan ahead of election

    The U.S. military said Wednesday six American troops were killed in Afghanistan, as militants killed six election workers amid growing fears on the eve of the presidential election that insurgents would mar the vote.

    Two troops were killed in gunfire in the south on Wednesday, the U.S. military said, while a third was killed in an unspecified hostile attack. The U.S. also said a roadside bomb Tuesday in the south killed two troops, while another died of noncombat-related injuries. No other details were released.

    The deaths bring to at least 32 the number of American troops killed in the country this month, a record pace…………….

  1. perhaps in the second half the economic motivation for imposing “Shock Doctrine” will be discussed.

    At its second annual peace rally, hosted a speaker who explained that the goal of US & western forces is to control pipelines running through the -stans.

  2. What better time to strike, as we did in Iraq.  

    Afghanistan is poor, yet it sits on and is surrounded by wealth — the Caspian Sea is loaded with oil and natural gas — natural gas pipelines are being vied for constructing to run to Afghanistan.  Afghanistan is loaded with natural minerals, gold, cooper, uranium, etc.  So, the United States will plunder and kill in yet another country for it’s wealth and to gain control over it’s land.  Of course, fighting the war lords and the Taliban isn’t easy, so the United States would like to remain there for another 50 years.  Yep, another 50 years to exploit all the potential wealth of that country.  

    Thanks, jimstarro, for this — I have seen these videos and they should be distributed around — why not to Obama, too?
