President Obama announced that the U.S. will keep 9,800 troops in Afghanistan at the end of 2014. Currently, 32,000 troops are stationed there. What a pathetic game Obama, his zionist masters and pentagon generals are playing with the American public. Is there anyone naive enough to think that America is ever going to leave Afghanistan? Not if the neo-cons in Washington, London, New York and Tel Aviv have anything to say about it.
Any talk of draw-downs, withdrawals, retreats, and exits is just gibberish spewing from the mouths of politicians. The grand chessboard, with central Asia as the most prized possession, is ever front and center for Kissinger, Brzezinski, and their proteges in Washington DC.
Incredible as it may sound, there are still hard-core Obama apologists existing in what is known as “the Left” in America. Scarcely remembering that they elected this man on a platform of bringing peace and prosperity back to America after the naked war-mongering of Bush Jr. , they live in a world of make-believe where whatever Obama does is somehow good, because he is , well…not Bush.
If we do in fact see a reduction from 32,000 down to 9,800 by the end of this year (not a sure thing, only a promise), it is only because those troops are badly needed in the next theatre of war, whether that will be in Asia (see: Asian pivot), the Caucasus (see: Ukraine) , or Africa (see: Boko Haram, Tuareg, Somali insurgents ad nauseum).
One thing is for sure: the flow of opium profits from Afghanistan must be maintained at all costs. If they can do the job with 10,000 soldiers, great. It’s an investment that will more than pay for itself. Meanwhile, Obama will throw a bone to the American public every 6 months or so about reducing troops here or there, but the empire will march on, as long as it can.
