Obama: "The first thing I will do as President is get our troops home. Take that to the bank."

Quote: "I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank. " - Barack Obama Campaign Promise - October 27, 2007



This bears repeating, since OBOMBA will announce today a significant escalation in the 'Wars for Wall Street and Israel' by sending tens of thousands more of our kids over to Afghanistan.

And bringing up eight yo stories about the dead guy, Bin Laden escaping into Pakistan, will help seal the deal. Gotta chase that dead man down or else!

Maybe they'll find another 9/11 'mastermind' while in Afghanistan and occasionally slipping into Pakistan?

Rumsfeld let Bin Laden escape in 2001, says Senate report

The only thing we're securing in Afghanistan are those poppy fields for Wall Street banks to make 50+ billion a year from the sales of opium and heroin and surrounding and threatening another of Israel's 'existential' enemies, Iran with Pentagon bases, soldiers and marines.... And slowly creeping towards those Caspian Basin oil and natural gas fields.

Americans Are Deeply Involved In Afghan Drug Trade 

“U.S.-allied drug dealers are put in charge of the police and border patrol, while their rivals are placed on American hit lists.”

If you’re looking for the chief kingpin in the Afghanistan heroin trade, it’s the United States. The American mission has devolved to a Mafiosi-style arrangement that poisons every military and political alliance entered into by the U.S. and its puppet government in Kabul. It is a gangster occupation, in which U.S.-allied drug dealers are put in charge of the police and border patrol, while their rivals are placed on American hit lists, marked for death or capture. As a result, Afghanistan has been transformed into an opium plantation that supplies 90 percent of the world’s heroin.

An article in the current issue of Harper’s magazine explores the inner workings of the drug-infested U.S. occupation, it’s near-total dependence on alliances forged with players in the heroin trade. The story centers on the town of Spin Boldak, on the southeastern border with Pakistan, gateway to the opium fields of Kandahar and Helmand provinces. The chief Afghan drug lord is also the head of the border patrol and the local militia. The author is an undercover U.S.-based journalist who was befriended by the drug lord’s top operatives and met with the U.S. and Canadian officers that collaborate with the drug dealer on a daily basis.

The alliance was forged by American forces during the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, and has endured and grown ever since. The drug lord, and others like him throughout the country, is not only immune to serious American interference, he has been empowered through U.S. money and arms to consolidate his drug business at the expense of drug-dealing rivals in other tribes, forcing some of them into alliance with the Taliban. On the ground in Pashtun-speaking Afghanistan, the war is largely between armies run by heroin merchants, some aligned with the Americans, others with the Taliban. The Taliban appear to be gaining the upper hand in this Mafiosa gang war, the origins of which are directly rooted in U.S. policy.

Right on the money again...I have mates that are former colleagues that are guarding poppy-fields as we type! When they are not harassing the locals and then shelling their homes, of course!
