2 BILLION in Military Aid to Pakistan?
Original post made by Not Good on Oct 22, 2010
Curious how and why we continue to shell out Trillions in "Aid" (borrowed money) at the tax payers expense, while our own nation is sinking economy wise and we are a County in Severe DEBT.
Curious that it's a known fact that Pakistan funded the terrorists that pulled off 911, however being "allies" we invaded another Country that had nothing to do with 911.
Curious that Osama Bin Laden operated unfettered out of Pakistan and that Pakistan refused to take any measures related to all the Al Qaeda training camps on there soil in the border regions.
Curious that we find out recently to no surprise that the U.S. CIA has paid billions to the Taliban in exchange for "safe passage" of out supply trucks. CIA is handing out CASH like candy all over the world.
Curious that the U.S. had LOST track of billions in CASH and weapons in both of these wars.
Curious that when we invaded Afghanistan, DICK CHENEY'S HALLIBURTON was indicted for BILKING the American Public for trillions in past wars, however the company received a NO BID open ended contract fro both Afghanistan and Iraq. We bomb entie infrastructure and Halliburton rebuilds at astronomical over priced fee's.
In essence, in both Countries we are FUNDING the very insurgents that continue to maim and kill our troops! This is a BUSINESS and a vicious cycle at best.
War is BIG Business and Big Business prevails.
We as U.S. Citizens are PAWNS in the greater corrupt scheme of non partisan Government corruption.
