“I Was Living Like Scarface”: The Ludicrous Costs of the War in Afghanistan Revealed in New Documents, Testimonies
“Holy cow, I was living like Scarface…I was paying out anywhere between $300-400,000 per week to $5 million per week at times. All in cash.” Matthew Hoh, U.S. Marine Corps Captain and former State Department official
A newly published study from the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) — a U.S. government body — lays bare the waste and corruption of the whole affair, drawing parallels with famous satires such as “Catch 22” and “MASH.” Uncompromising in its frankness, the 124-page report outlines the incompetence, venality and dark absurdity of the whole endeavor. “When you look at how much we spent and what we got for it, it’s mind boggling,” one senior Department of Defense administrator admitted to SIGAR in 2015.
If you want to know why the Taliban want the same old government and contractors to stay, just read this. All the pieces will continue to fall in place from a free fall of gravity over time. History. They know the money will follow them.
New in coming commanders went to Afghanistan with duffel bags of cash, this is old news to the awaken. It paid for corruption, much of it leading to a few being able to manage to take over the poppy crops to further enrich themselves.
Not only were the men and women basically sent to Afghanistan and Iraq to be murdered over lies, with the help of fake news from MSCM, the wars were fake also.
What you read here is basically the same thing going on in Iraq today. The terrorist that the westernized society created are being fought and controlled by the Iranians and other proxy groups. Our men and women are merely targets for terrorist to keep going after if they leave camp. And as a threat to the Iraqi government, also corrupt, to tow the line. As long as air power is subdued and money keeps coming, no one gives a shit about troops in a camp. Or the civilians now facing the oppression of capitalism and the democracy they won't get.
But keep voting the same type of representation in if you're happy with this indoctrinated society made for the few. VERY
