Obummer declared victory recently against getting rid of "al-CIA-duh" out of Afghanistan from where according to him 9/11 was planned and undertaken, and the defeat of the CIA created Taliban.
Apparently "defeating" ones own created holograms and entities, armed with nothing more than AK-47 and RPG's is considered a great military feat. NOT.
There was never a victory to win in the first place, but merely to ensure the Afghan Opium was significantly harvested out of that wretched country. All the CIA needed was sufficient imagination to create enough ever changing narratives of cock and bull to sell to the masses of the importance of Afghanistan, and why the USA had to be there.
The Afghan Opium has been harvested for 11 straight years, worth to the Jewish laundering bankers in London and New York at anything between $800 billion to $2000 billion, and 12 more years to go, if the CIA has enough imagination to swing the scam out of the USA, otherwise a quick exit of one years notice of either participating party.
Mean while the war criminal Pentagon/CIA will play indispensable global heroes protecting the world from the menace of "Islamic terrorism" emanating from Afghanistan. They will in the process kill many more civilians unchecked, attack wedding parties in the guise of gay revenge, prayer meetings, village meetings, funerals, alleged targets in Pakistan, wreck and destroy another Third World country, based on more sanctimonious BS, and pure lying....and so on to keep up the criminal facade for another 12 years.
Unless the USA destroys itself before that juncture.
We hope it does.
The war has not only failed, it will continue for another decade
by John Glaser at antiwar.com
In his weekly address, President Obama promised to withdraw U.S. troops by the end of 2014 and to start wasting money here at home, instead of over in Afghanistan.
“After more than a decade of war,” he said,” it is time to focus on nation building here at home.” He added that America has been successful in Afghanistan, and that he is bringing the war to a close victoriously.
But the President’s remarks were misleading and carefully phrased to benefit his reelection campaign. The truth is, the war has been an utter failure, it will continue long after 2014, and it will continue to cost the U.S. exorbitant sums of money as Americans struggle in a down economy.
After recalling his recent trip to visit U.S. troops in Afghanistan, Obama claimed “the tide of war has turned in Afghanistan. We have broken the Taliban’s momentum. We’ve built strong Afghan Security Forces.” Except none of those things are true.
The tide of war has not turned. For virtually every six month period since the beginning of the surge in 2009, the rate of bloodshed and violence has increased considerably. Last year saw a rise in overall violence for the fifth year in a row.
As for the Taliban’s momentum, it has not been broken. In a report submitted last Tuesday to Congress, the Pentagon acknowledged a “resilient” Taliban and many analysts have predicted at least a partial return to power by the Taliban.
In January, the National Intelligence Estimate concluded the war is still a “stalemate,” that the Taliban are still strong, that Washington has propped up a government plagued by pervasive corruption and illiberal policies, etc.
Finally, the Afghan security forces are neither strong, competent, nor independent. Afghan troops consistently get into gun battles with their American and NATO counterparts and less than 1 percent of them can operate independently, without NATO guidance.
Obama also misrepresented this so-called withdrawal date of 2014. The deal he signed with Kabul would maintain a significant U.S. presence in Afghanistan until at least 2024.
