#2 Firstly, it is NOT the 'Pentagon' who is in charge of the War in Afghanistan or post-conflict events in Iraq. The people in charge can be found in the US Embassy.

Mr. Becker has his "endless" source of money correct. He just needs to follow it back a bit further. When you see the media headline caption "senior Taliban leader Shimwad Shym el Syadwazzi killed today" (one of the tens of thousands of senior Taliban leaders). Rest assured it wasn't a motorcycle accident, he was targeted for removal.

Ask yourself, 'who does the targeting?' You'll quickly discover who is actually in charge of the greater Afghan effort.

#3 Uh...I feel dirty. Yes, the war in Afghanistan will never be won because it has no win condition. Yes, the military-industrial complex is making a mint off this war and never wants it to end. Yes, globalists want a US troop presence in Central Asia because they want to conquer all the territories.

#4 Alexander couldn't do it. British couldn't do it. Russians couldn't do it.

#6 "We" aren't making money, the corporations that supply the military are making money.

Moreover they discovered lots of minerals in Afghanistan's hills. We're never leaving. Too much profit to be had for our elites.
