The Warfare State Lied About Afghanistan, Iraq, & Syria. They Will Lie Again!

Authored by Tho Bishop via The Mises Institute,

This week saw the Washington Post published a bombshell report titled “The Afghanistan Papers,” highlighting the degree to which the American government lied to the public about the ongoing status of the war in Afghanistan. Within the thousands of pages, consisting of internal documents, interviews, and other never-before-released intel, is a vivid depiction of a Pentagon painfully aware of the need to keep from the public the true state of the conflict and the doubts, confusion, and desperation of decision-makers spanning almost 20 years of battle.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At 70, I have a very clear memory of the Vietnam war; many of the young men drafted, who were my friends and sometimes brother and sister musicians, never made it back alive, or were mentally, or physically, or both, shattered beyond repair, for the rest of their lives.

I understood, that the premise under which this horrendous, genocidal war was being fought, had utterly no relationship to what we were told by the TV; Radio, and government-owned writers.

In short, what this US government does, is lie; obfuscate; and throw up smoke screens, so that the US citizens will not, clearly, be able to look at the long view, and see what is really going on.

It is generally the alternative media which does this, although kudos to WaPo, for having published this article, because it states, very clearly, what many Americans have suspected for quite some time now; politicians, in order to keep their buddies in the military industrial complex happy, is "arrange" for this country to be in almost perpetual war. Earnings boom for those companies, allowing them to give even more support to candidates who see the world as they do, financially, and this is their perspective, and philosophy:

1. Destabilize an existing, not-pro-US government with one which is.

2. Make sure that the resources of that country are expropriated by companies with which they are "embedded", for this kind of work, with the people living over or around those resources, getting precious little compensation for them, if any.

3. Insure that the funds in which these resources are sold, are only US dollars.

When Karl Marx made the observation that all wars are economic in their origins, the man was absolutely correct.
