“Prepare a place to slaughter his sons for the sins of their forefathers; they are not to rise to inherit the land and cover the earth with their cities” Isaiah 14:21

Our fundamentalist Christian Pentagon should take note of the words of Isaiah, in the Old Testament they have adopted, with its rivers of blood ascribed to the will of god.

More importantly, reasonable and sane people should examine how it is we are bled as a society, as we bleed other societies, by criminal personalities in charge of policy pursued by our extremist Christian Taliban generals; people who precisely fit a maxim of Einstein: We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them

In short:

In 1987, former Obama Secretary of Defense and career CIA man, Robert Gates, who is practically a son of George H.W. Bush and brother to George W. Bush, had organized and was coordinating the expenditure of $630 million (nearly 1.5 billion, adjusted for inflation) and its related delivery of 65,000 tons of weapons and ammunition per year, into Afghanistan. This effort both; drove out the Russians and left Afghanistan in the hands of armed to the teeth war lords.

Then, the general population of Afghanistan, desperate to be rid of the war lords, supported the rise of the Taliban.

The Taliban in turn terrorized the population of Afghanistan and many Afghans welcomed the subsequent American invasion.

In turn, the Americans, instead of understanding a tribal society and focusing on strengthening rural stability based on existing social structures; with focus on improving health and education in decentralized tribal regions, preferred propping up a corrupt central government. And the Americans stayed on to be certain that artificial, alien and fraudulently elected corrupt institution exercised authority over a tribal culture that rejects the very concept, causing widening hostility and loss of good will.

As more and more Afghans became alienated to the American presence propping up the alien and corrupt central regime’s structure, Afghanistan’s indigenous Pashtun nationalism became an enemy recruiting blessing, strengthening and rebuilding the Taliban. Our generals then became more aggressive and this enticed more recruits to the Taliban, resulting in Bush buddies Robert Gates, General McChrystal and General Patraeus talking their new lap-dog president into ever more aggressive but failed tactics, with the result of empowering the Taliban yet more.

When Susan Rice states American support of the war in Afghanistan is essential to Afghan women’s rights, seldom has a greater political lie been told.

With the American military occupation of Afghanistan, heroin has flooded the world, as it has everywhere the CIA has been involved with conflict in favorable opium climates.

Since 2009, seventy percent of retiring American three and four star generals have moved into the military contracting business where immense profits are to be made.

From 2001 to 2011, nearly four trillion dollars had been spent by the USA in wars including Afghanistan. It is well over four trillion to now.

Meanwhile, sincere persons that might have brought peace that would have cut into the profiteering are murdered in night raids by special operations forces whose views have been shaped by our Pentagon’s Christian Taliban.


And finally we are back to square one, with the Americans arming and turning the effort back to the Afghan war lords.

The USA’s Afghanistan efforts are shining example of repeatedly failed policies that can only be described as The Greatest Criminal Endeavor, EVER.
