AFGHANISTAN AND THE AMERICAN MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.
Two trillion dollars spent in Afghanistan.
Two trillion dollars that could have been used in the US,
To eliminate poverty, build infrastructure, counter China, and
Mount vigorous climate mitigating actions.
Most of the two trillion dollars pocketed by US military hardware and
Software manufacturers; military contractors, corrupt Afghan officials and the
Remainder captured by the Taliban Islamists.
Same America that won’t spend $1 trillion to fix her infrastructure.
Infrastructure ranked 13th in the developed world.
Spending on infrastructure will break the bank, but
Spending on the military-industrial complex will
Build the bank and eliminate the deficit – Really?
It takes a corrupt government to fund foreign corruption.
After a twenty-year war or is it a military vacation,
The Taliban are back in control of Afghanistan.
Same fate that befell the Indians, the British, and the Russians has
Befallen the world’s greatest Superpower – USA.
Terrorists are celebrating in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, India, Iraq, Iran, Nigeria, Mozambique, and elsewhere while
Africastallestman is crestfallen.
