Bloody Loss For US: “We can’t Beat Taliban” – NATO General

From RT America, January 21, 2019

Rick Sanchez discusses a recent decimating attack that wiped out an entire company of Afghan Security Forces, part of a consistent pattern of the retreat of US and its proxies in the face of a resurgent Taliban. He reports on the grotesque reason for continuing US presence in Afghanistan – that no matter the death and suffering in the conflict, US military contractors and the politicians in their pocket make millions of dollars in blood money. In this “privatized war,” there are twice as many military contractors as there are soldiers. He is then joined by activist, author and journalist David Swanson, who argues that the real enemy is “the institution of war” and not the supposed “bad guys” designated by any government.

    Afghanistan…the graveyard of empires. How many more soldiers have to perish before this is finally understood?
