“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”
– Dwight David Eisenhower, “Military-Industrial Complex Speech” 1961
Recomendo que leiam e vejam algumas fotos do que era o Afeganistão antes da invasão da ex-URSS, provocada pela da entrada da CIA do mentor de Obama, Zbigniew Brzezinski, seis meses antes, que criou a Al-Qaeda (base de dados dos mujahedeen) de Bin Laden (Tim Osman), ele próprio um elemento da CIA.
Imaginem, se conseguirem, como estaria hoje este país caso duas potências não o tivessem invadido e destruído a sua estabilidade de forma completamente ilegal e criminosa, ainda por cima com a quantidade de riquezas que possuem no seu subsolo.
Se estes acontecimentos não tivessem ocorrido, com grande probabilidade ainda hoje teríamos mulheres a serem respeitadas e a poderem usufruir de uma vida de estilo ocidental.
E por certo não teríamos assassinos idiotas como o ex-CEO da Blackwater/XE a dizer estas barbaridades e Liam Fox (‘British Defense Secretary’):
“On a recent trip to Afghanistan, British Defense Secretary Liam Fox drew fire for calling it “a broken 13th-century country.” The most common objection was not that he was wrong, but that he was overly blunt. He’s hardly the first Westerner to label Afghanistan as medieval. Former Blackwater CEO Erik Prince recently described the country as inhabited by “barbarians” with “a 1200 A.D. mentality.” Many assume that’s all Afghanistan has ever been — an ungovernable land where chaos is carved into the hills. Given the images people see on TV and the headlines written about Afghanistan over the past three decades of war, many conclude the country never made it out of the Middle Ages.”

E a propósito da nova invasão, a mais recente, desta vez levada a cabo pelos EUA e forças da NATO nas quais se encontra o nosso triste país, não era a captura de Bin Laden o grande objectivo?
Ou talvez o combate ao ‘terrorismo’?
Parece que não, como se pode depreender deste tipo de desinformação dos media papagaios.
So now the cheerleaders for war would have us believe that they are more concerned for the welfare of Afghan civilians than are those who wish to end the US occupation.
A half-century ago, Afghan women pursued careers in medicine; men and women mingled casually at movie theaters and university campuses in Kabul; factories in the suburbs churned out textiles and other goods. There was a tradition of law and order, and a government capable of undertaking large national infrastructure projects, like building hydropower stations and roads, albeit with outside help. Ordinary people had a sense of hope, a belief that education could open opportunities for all, a conviction that a bright future lay ahead. All that has been destroyed by three decades of war, but it was real.
Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.
Shortly before his untimely death, former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook told the House of Commons that “Al Qaeda” is not really a terrorist group but a database of international mujaheddin and arms smugglers used by the CIA and Saudis to funnel guerrillas, arms, and money into Soviet-occupied Afghanistan.
