Recent headlines read: Karzai suspects U.S. is behindinsurgent-style attacks!
Well holy Tonkin Gulf Resolution, Batman!
And remember the Maine, Robin!
Mr. Karzai must have (and if not then he should) read this article by a former Israeli Paratrooper:
The Strategy of Disintegration: False flags, dirty tricks and the dismemberment of Iraq by Israel Shamir.
All imperial powers engage in false flag operations as a pretext for invading and occupying other countries.
This strategy almost never fools the invaded and occupied but they're not really the intended target of the fraud.
It's the citizens of the imperial invader country that need to be fooled initially and continually to support these wars and occupations abroad.
But why is Mr. Karzai only now complaining about this?
He is like a Vichy Frenchman suddenly outraged about German war crimes.
Ah well....Noam Chomsky got it right: 'Colonialism is a nasty business.'
And god dammit....the US needs to control the world's opium market....just like the Brits did with their Opium Wars there in the 19th Century....the money is just too good!
That's why the Brits are with the US there now .... for the same reasons they were there then (with Irish graves galore).
Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda were simply the pretext used by the US and Brits to re-invade and occupy Afghanistan because the Taliban had outlawed and by 2001 completely shut down opium production for religious reasons.
This was well known at the time:
Where have all the flowers gone?
Besides, the Taliban government offered up Osama and Al-Qaeda to George Bush on one condition....that Bush provide them proof of Osama's guilt.
But Bush refused because he didn’t have it. See this from Chomsky:
In April 2002, the head of the FBI, Robert Mueller, informed the press that after the most intensive investigation in history, the FBI could say no more than that it “believed” that the plot was hatched in Afghanistan, though implemented in the UAE and Germany. What they only believed in April 2002, they obviously didn’t know 8 months earlier, when Washington dismissed tentative offers by the Taliban (how serious, we do not know, because they were instantly dismissed) to extradite bin Laden if they were presented with evidence—which, as we soon learned, Washington didn’t have.
Hence the invasion and occupation in October 2001 and consequently the flourishing of opium production in Afghanistan once again .... and world-wide heroin supplies restocked indefinitely:
Sound crazy? Well....it is…but don't think of it as the War on Drugs but the War for Drugs:
Opium Production in Afghanistan Hits Record High
And the on shore banks which own or control the off shore banks are going to need an army of accountants and financiers to help launder all the loot. A kind of jobs policy for cops & crooks!
The politics of heroin …. it was ever thus.
And likely always will be.
After all, drugs, like oil and gold, are just another highly demanded colonial commodity.
And any lie or excuse will do to get it.
Even if that means Navy Seal Teams getting their asses kicked like Custer in land locked countries.
But no one should go there and get their balls blown off:
Because that’ll just increase the demand for pain medication and the need for more wars there.
In the meantime watch for Karzai to go the way of Diem, etc.
There is just no room for independent nationalists of any stripe in old or new world orders.
They got no right to destroy our buzz.
