Eight die in Afghan bombing as US loses 1,000th soldier

American Scofflaw

Memo to US General Stanley McChrystal: you understand, the Afghan people understand, and the world understands that the statement about foreign troops being in Afghanistan "to protect the Afghan people" is a complete, utter, and abominably transparent lie.

The US and NATO are in Afghanistan for two reasons, and two reasons only.

The are:

1. to "pacify" the Afghan population to the degree necessary to install the pipelines with which to to control Eurasian oil for private profit, and

2. To control production and the flow of drugs from which so many profit so handsomely.

The second outcome seems to have been well accomplished, to the point where the Russian government was complaining stridently last year about cheap heroin flooding the market in their country, destroying the lives of their kids (when you control the drugs, you control where the drugs wind up).

The first outcome is still absolutely no where in sight, which is why, 8 years on, we are at the painful milestone of 1,000 Americans killed in battle here.
