Looks like ISIS is at it again. I guess we wouldn't consider them our brothers - right?

Kabul Airport Attack Kills 12 U.S. Service Members, at Least 60 Afghans.

ltr
170 people, including 13 US troops.
And apparently lost one of theirs (a suicide bomber).
That is a very efficient way of killing,at 1 to 170 ration.
Unsure why they call it
Kabul Airport Blasts: World leaders react to 'cowardly'
any of those brave leaders would be able to sacrifice their life for something that they truly believe?

Wow! Serious statement!
“China has been a trustworthy friend of Afghanistan. The Afghan Taliban is willing to continue to promote friendly relations between Afghanistan and China and will never allow any force to use Afghan territory to threaten China’s interests,” Hanafi said, according to a statement from the Chinese foreign ministry.”

Michael Moore is doing a free streaming of Fahrenheit 9/11 ... you can watch for free on Friday, September 10 at 9 pm eastern.

Moore has been speaking out against America's purposeless, endless wars ever since the Iraq war started. How sad that the US wasted all this money and had so many people killed for no actual reason. Even from the start, it was clear that there was no real mission here, nothing to gain.

Thankfully Trump and Biden finally had the backbone to put an end to this war and pull Americans out.

Here's how to watch the movie for free:

The truth of Afghanistan is that there is no reason for the US to stay any longer. The 1990's and 2000's and the US wars on Iraq and Afghanistan are very tied to American total dependence on oil from those countries.

How the tables have turned thanks to American engineering. 15 years after pioneering hydraulic fracturing in a way that could be mass produced, the US is now actually the largest producer of oil in the world and adding in Canada and Mexico means North America is effectively energy independent. This means the US has the freedom to let the Middle East sort itself out.

You could say that hydraulic fracturing has made it predictable and perhaps inevitable that American interventions in the Middle East would disappear.

15 years ago, Americans were borrowing money from the Middle East and selling assets to them to buy oil. Today, the Middle East is borrowing American money and selling assets to maintain their way of life. It's a very interesting turn of events 15 years in the making.

That's part of the story, but there is also the warfare industry in America (and many other western countries) that keep lobbying for war.

So whether or not there is any good justification for war, these corporate interests keep pushing for it. They've become unbelievably rich through warfare, basically just taking money from the public. The taxpayer funds all of these monsters:
  • Thales
  • Airbus
  • General Dynamics
  • Northrop Grumman
  • BAE
  • Raytheon
  • Boeing
  • Lockheed Martin
And countless other defense contractors, like Blackwater. Tons of rich people getting even more rich off the backs of the taxpayer. All they need are some people to blow up.
