Truths behind the war in Afghanistan

Truth is war’s first casualty. The Afghan war’s biggest untruth is, “we’ve got to fight terrorists over there so we don’t have to fight them at home.”

The 9/11 attacks were planned in Germany and Spain, and conducted mainly by U.S.-based Saudis to punish America for supporting Israel.

Taliban, a militant religious, anti-Communist movement of Pashtun tribesmen, was totally surprised by 9/11. The United States should not be waging war on Taliban. However backwards and oafish its Pashtun tribesmen, they have no desire or interest in attacking America.

Al-Qaeda only numbered 300 members in Afghanistan. Most have been killed. A handful escaped to Pakistan. Only a few remain in Afghanistan. Yet President Barack Obama insists 68,000 or more U.S. troops must stay in Afghanistan to fight al-Qaeda and prevent extremists from re-acquiring “terrorist training camps.” Anti-American militants could more easily use Somalia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, North and West Africa, or Sudan. They don’t need remote Afghanistan.

Lastly, the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan is causing more damage to U.S. interests in the Muslim world — now 25% of all humanity — than Bin Laden and his few rag-tag allies ever did.

  1. Most people don’t really want to hear the truth about our war involvement, as true as it may be, because they are either busy trying to pay their rent, feed their family ,or, on the other end of the spectrum, busy greedily making more money than they really need at the expense of human lives, so they can live selfishly and be proud of it.. The Meek shall inherit the earth while the evil doers shall be rooted out of it. In time,, all in good time..
