(worse ones, of course. like that erik prince and mullah omar are cousins in business together, urging the other cousins to keep those bucks spilling into the 'ghan'stan. how would that do ya for the whole global illuminati mind-fuck romp?)
the 'gon sends money taliban way through protection -- a basic mob op -- via those ubiquitous subcontractors, who pay out something on the order of 200-400 million pentagon-sluiced us taxpayer dollars per year to Taliban and linked forces.
seems, also through a network of shadowy contractors (amazing really, all the great benefits that privatization is having!) the Taliban have taken up host in US military bases as security guards, and, if that, probably every other kind of contractor, too. Nato supply line drivers, etc..
so, us taxpayer dollars are wending their way through the black box of the fucking pentagon, and into sub-sub-subcontractors hands, who happen to be Taliban dudes. paid by the pentagon to guard us military bases.
a thoroughly modern F Troop.
The Pentagon’s oversight of the Afghan guards is virtually nonexistent, allowing local security deals among American military commanders, Western contracting companies and Afghan warlords who are closely connected to the violent insurgency, according to the report by investigators on the staff of the Senate Armed Services Committee.of course, we've also got the marvelously profitable opium industry doing big business under cover of war, keeping more than a few banks afloat during some uncertain times recently. opium futures apparently were a stable hedge.
The United States military has almost no independent information on the Afghans guarding the bases, who are employees of Afghan groups hired as subcontractors by Western firms awarded security contracts by the Pentagon. At one large American airbase in western Afghanistan, military personnel did not even know the names of the leaders of the Afghan groups providing base security, the investigators found. So they used the nicknames that the contractor was using — Mr. White and Mr. Pink from “Reservoir Dogs,” the 1992 gangster movie by Quentin Tarantino. Mr. Pink was later determined to be a “known Taliban” figure
then comes the wondrous tale of how NATO sub-contractors are blowing up their own NATO fuel trucks, which have been emptied of NATO fuel in black market deals, and receiving insurance money from NATO: sell the gas in truck, pocket gas money, blow up truck, get new truck from NATO.
and, for all we know, these guys blowin' up the NATO trucks are sub-sub-subcontracted taliban dudes who are more than happy to blow up, and to keep blowing up, NATO fuel trucks, sell the fuel beforehand, and collect the generous NATO insurance for a brand new truck. that those same taliban dudes can then rehire to NATO all over again. rinse, repeat. truly, the work of Allah.
sweet deal. and what a great scam. 'cause, taliban dudes have attacked and do attack NATO supply lines. no stretch you got nailed by those taliban muthufuckas. 'lessin' anyone looks around the wreck, maybe finds some bombs parts stuck here and there. fuck. who'd do that? inspect? fuck that shit. taliban! only, the bad ones. not the ones driving your NATO trucks.
afghanistan is now one monstrous illicit, money swirling, scuz-filled scam pot, players across the board and all sides, raking in the cash that pours into afghanistan, precious little of which actually pours onto many afghans, other than as those money-making hellfire missiles. it is, or will be, a self-perpetuating money making enterprise, much of it on the backs of the us taxpayers, and the rest of those taxpayers governed by idiots still maintaining pretense enough to publicly claim that the war in afghanistan is "worth it."
problem is, they never tell you what "it" is.
