The Taliban were created by the CIA in 1994, using their Pakistani ISI local gofers and Gulf oil mischief funds.......a la "al-CIA-duh" of the Arab Spring in Libya, Tunisia and Syria more recently.
In internet jargon they are what we term "Controlled Opposition".......the presence of the Taliban somehow tenuously justifies the JEWSA's presence in Afghanistan, so that the JEWSA can harvest the opium for the Jew Wall Street Bankers...and that's it.
For 11 years the Taliban has performed poorly in the battle field given that they lack heavy equipment (Ak-47, RPG's VS State of the art NATO/USA equipment), proper training, organization, logistics, planning, modern tactics and trained commanders.....and the ISI, their not so covert masters has not given them any aircover.....SAMs and light SAMs even.
However given that the Taliban is largely an ethnic based group representing Pashtuns who have traditionally dominated Afghanistan for 300 years, the Taliban provides aggrieved young Pashtun men a genuine channel through which they can vent their anger at the foreign occupation of their homeland, Afghanistan.
On the other hand since the Taliban is a "Controlled Opposition" it must play its part in the theater of Afghanistan set by the CIA......and that means attacking Kabul now and then to remind the everybody what a noble role the USA is playing on behalf of the world in that wretched country......so manipulated for 30 odd years by the CIA/ISI into war and destruction.
The recent Taliban attack around the country was probably a false flag attack. If it was a genuine nationalist attack by true local liberators, then they would NOT have attacked Russian and German targets.......and other civilian targets, but instead would have focused on the USA, the main actor in this tragedy.
If one man ever embodied all that is wrong with the mainstream media’s failing propaganda outlets, it’s Geraldo Rivera.
Presently, he’s masquerading as a journalist in Afghanistan, earning his salary as the media’s ultimate weapon of mass distraction.
Following yesterday’s Taliban offensive where a number of Afghanistan’s urban areas were hit in a coordinated paramilitary attack, FOX News aired its tenuous program entitled “Geraldo at Large”.
The tough-talking embedded reporter Rivera admitted that he didn’t see any of the action because (he claimed) he was helplessly locked inside the US embassy when the Taliban offensive took place.
When the smoke finally cleared, and it was safe to come out, FOX’s brave journalist emerged, this time on camera with an Afghan translator who was allegedly phoning a Taliban fighter for some post-attack commentary.
This is a spook media stunt
Rivera started in with, “Ask him how it feels to get his ass kicked…”
When the Taliban on the phone replied, Geraldo promptly interrupted him, ironically telling his FOX viewers not to listen because, “… it’s propaganda”.
A model of journalistic integrity, Geraldo finished off his segment with gusto by pretending to shout-down the Taliban through the phone, effectively calling them out from a safe distance:
”You jerk-off… what did you win?!”
“You killed no Americans…”
After being dumped by ABC and NBC, Rivera eventually landed his current position at the MSM’s dying flagship FOX News.
Rivera’s reporting in Afghanistan has since reached new lows from yesterday’s Taliban outburst – but not as low as previous reporting where he worked as a vacant apologist for the heroin trade in Central Asia.Pentagon Spokesman Captain John Kirby also went on to write off the attack, saying, ”I don’t believe they succeeded.”
At no point during FOX and other US television mainstream media reporting on yesterday’s coordinated nation-wide Taliban attack did TV news reporters mention the US military slaughter of 18 innocent Afghan villagers that took place in Kandahar only a few short weeks ago. It was because of this very massacre that the Taliban mounted their latest ‘Spring Offensive’.
This is a prime example of how the US media is able to erase the past, training their viewers not to think in terms of cause and effect, but only to see events as they are presented on the TV news conveyor belt managed by media cartel members FOX, NBC, ABC, CBS, and CNN.
Latest talking point: “Haqqani Network”
FOX pundits continued to shape their audience’s newly scripted reality in Afghanistan explaining, “This attack bares all the halmarks of the Haqqani Network“. Sound familiar? “Bares all the hallmarks of… (fill in the blanks).
The U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Ryan Crocker, also repeated the Pentagon’s latest talking point, explaining in an interview with CNN’s ‘‘State of the Union” program, that he also believed the attacks were carried out by the evil Haqqani.
As the alleged Taliban faction, labeled as the “Haqqani”, are supposedly based in Pakistan, the Pentagon’s new terror network allows the Washington to ramp-up their tough talk with Pakistan, as well as step-up drone attacks over the Afghan border.
Geraldo Rivera helped promote the US military’s protection of the Afghan heroin supply "business"
Under the Taliban, pre-2001 opium production was down to almost zero.
After the U.S. and UK forces invaded, however, production picked-up exponentially from around 700 tons in 2001, to about 8,000 tons in 2008, generating a black market profit in the region of $500 billion.
("For heroin the wholesale price for a kilogram in Britain was typically $US29,569, in America $US71,200, and in Australia a whopping $US221,304." The price of heroin depends on the country.....Iran, Pakistan, India, Central Asia, Ukraine, Russia, Europe or North America....courtesy of the Pentagon and their local criminal links.
One of the main reasons it is so cheap in the UK is because the British military working with the British police have been successful in flooding and controlling the flow of heroin into the UK, where the profits are laundered in the Jew banks of the "The City" in London and goes back to habits cultivated from the days of the East India Company, and the cultivation of Opium in India for the Chinese market. But do not expect any real focus or expose of the harm Afghan heroin does to millions of British people......either from the British government or the British media.
If a NATO member government has some feeling and a sense of responsibility for their people, all they have to do to curtail the menace of heroin from Afghanistan is withdraw their troops and their spooks...and they will mysteriously discover the flow of heroin suddenly declines in their country (2 + 2= 4).
Heroin cultivated by the Pentagon is a REAL MENACE that harms millions of people worldwide as a pose to the manufactured booga booga of the Taliban and "al-CIA-duh". Then it is about making REAL CHOICES around REAL ISSUES.
Patrick Henningsen otherwise excellent analysis I think exaggerates the claim of the retail value of Afghan heroin....maybe to push home a point...8000 tons x 1000 kilograms x $50,000 median street retail value around the world = $400,000,000,000.
I suppose with such profits for the Jew banker, why bother making cars, TV, or anything else......this is all easy money, and its all very smart and cunning isn't it?)
Few can rightly argue that: there does not exists a genuine link between the War on Terror and the War on Drugs.
Regarding the opium crops, instead of looking deeper than the Pentagon party line, Geraldo Rivera did just the opposite – as he ran cover for the US military’s involvement in the Afghan drugs industry.
