USA in Afghanistan, China not - US has HUGE Deficits, China has HUGE Surpluses
You want to see what a right-wing lying machine most of US Media is, what lunatics Republicans are and how most Democrats (in Congress) are little different than the Republicans, then all you have to do is to consider the reasoning given by Obama, Bush and the US Media for the never ending US War and occupation of Afghanistan. And also consider the fact that Republicans and the right-wing lying US Media, over the last few years have all of a sudden started saying: "The debt bomb...", "The HUGE deficits leading us into another Greece..", "We are borrowing from our Grandchildren" etc. etc. fear-mongering about Debt & Deficits. But these same Republicans that are supposedly so worried about the "Deficits and the debt bomb..." instantly approved and approve the $200-Billion per year to be spent on the totally unnecessary Afghanistan War/occupation, a country that is more than 10,000 Kilometers from US. A War so unnecessary, a threat so non-existent, that China that borders, repeat borders, this same Afghanistan has spent and is spending ZERO Dollars or ZERO lives to fight.
1st reason given to us by ObamaBush for Afghanistan War
Obama said on his trip to Afghanistan the other day:
"We are never again going to let Afghanistan to be a base for the Terrorist to launch an attack on US..."
Which is exactly the reasoning given by Bush for continuing the Afghn War, after the 1st year, the 2nd year, the 3rd year, the 4th year, etc. leading to this Afghn War & occupation now being longer than WWII and WWI combined!
So what freaking attack did the "Terrorist launch on US from Afghanistan..."?
I mean how many missiles did they fire at US from Afghanistan? ZERO.
How many Fighter air crafts did they launch at US from Afghanistan? ZERO.
So what freaking attack is ObamaBush talking about that was launched from Afghanistan? Because NO such an attack was launched at us from Afghanistan. If ObamaBush is referring to 9/11 that was a bunch of people, mainly from Saudi Arabia, who boarded commercial planes in US and committed suicide with these planes. Even what flight training these people got, they got that from US flight schools. They even bought the $5.00 Box cutters that they uses to take over these Commercial flights from US stores. I mean they did not even bring their Weapon which was a $5.00 Box cutter from Afghanistan.
2nd reason given to us by ObamaBush for Afghanistan War
The 2nd reason given to us for the never ending Afghanistan War & occupation are that if we leave then the "bad Evil monster Terrorists in Afghanistan.." will take over Afghanistan and threaten us from there.
Before debunking this reason, 1st consider these ABSOLUTE FACTS:
1- China has a border with Afghanistan
2- US is 10,000+ Kilometers from Afghanistan
3- China has HUGE Surpluses
4- US has HUGE deficits
5- Most of the US deficits are financed by China
6- Afghanistan/Iraq cost US Tax payers (aka Government) $1Trillion Dollars to date
7- Afghanistan will cost at current rates US Tax payers $200Bill per year - More Details
8- A typical US state gets about $10Bill from US Government in typical year
9- China is now the 3rd largest economy in the World
So based on above FACTS this reason is a preposterous reasoning and patently absurd for if there were really these "bad Evil monster Terrorists in Afghanistan.." THEN why have they never bothered China which has a border with them? Or if there really were these "bad Evil monster Terrorists in Afghanistan" THEN WHY has China NOT sent in any troops across the border via trains and trucks to crush these "bad Evil monster Terrorists in Afghanistan.."? BUT instead China does not have 1 soldier in Afghanistan, China has not spent $1 fighting these "bad Evil monster Terrorists in Afghanistan".
So just thinks how insane this is: here is US 10,000+ Kilometers from Afghanistan and it has 100,000+ troops in this poor desolate country at the cost of $200Bill per year to US Tax payer WHILE China that borders Afghanistan has ZERO troops in Afghanistan and has spends ZERO Dollars in fighting these "bad Evil monster Terrorists in Afghanistan.."
Why China has ZERO troops in Afghanistan even though China borders Afghanistan?
Because there is in fact ZERO real threat from the "bad Evil monster Terrorists in Afghanistan". And the ONLY threat that they pose is due to the fear-mongering and war-mongering by US Media, but no real threat, certainly NO threat that would warrant having US troops there.
To see what a pathetic of a nothing threat Taliban/Alqaeda (aka Terrorist) are consider these FACTS:
How many Tanks does Alqaeda have? ZERO.
How many Fighter Planes does Alqaeda have? ZERO.
How many Ships does Alqaeda have? ZERO.
How many Missiles does Alqaeda have? ZERO.
How many Helicopters does Alqaeda have? ZERO.
How many Submarines does Alqaeda have? ZERO.
How many Naval basis does Taliban or Alqaeda have? ZERO.
How many Air Force basis does Taliban or Alqaeda have? ZERO.
etc. etc. ZEROS are the arsenal (the threat) from Taliban or Alqaeda.
Indicating that the fear we need to have from Alqaeda/Taliban should in fact be near ZERO. And that is why China has ZERO troops in Afghanistan that borders it.
So why the lies about this unnecessary Afghanistan War
The obvious question that you may have after reading the above FACTS is then why would the Big (Wall Street backed) Media in US lie and lie and lie to us about justifying this totally unnecessary Afghanistan War?
The 1st obvious answer of course is due to what General Eisenhower warned us about, which is the military industrial complex. After all to see how Gargantuan US Military budget has become and thus the US Media has had to lie and mislead to enable this Gargantuan US Military budget is to consider these FACTS:
1- US Military budget is larger than Military budget of all other countries on earth combined while today US economy is NOT even 15% of World economy
2- US Military budget was about 400Bill when the Soviet Union existed because, we were told we need a 400Bill Military budget to defend ourselves from Communist Soviet Union which has a Military with 50,000 fighter Jets, 300,000 Tanks, 5Mill soldiers, etc. etc. Well Soviet Union on its own disbanded, it has taken its Military budget down to about 20Bill per year, and how much did the US Military budget go down as a result of the threat of Communist Soviet Union not being there? Astonishingly US Military budget rather than being cut down from 400Bill per year, because the threat of the Soviet Union disappeared, it has risen to the mind bugling level of $600Bill year!!!
The 2nd answer, even more insidious than the 1st answer, as horrendous as the 1st answer is, is that the (Wall Street backed) Media, aka right-wing Media, has to engage in continuous fear-mongering to distract the people's mind from realizing that in fact the Republicans and the right-wing Media that they control, are the real enemy of the American people, as per the ABSOLUTE FACT that US does not have something as basic for her people as Universal nationalized health care, something that would SAVE the lives of at least 50,000+ Americans per year, SAVE 2Mill+ Americans from going bankrupt, while SAVE the US Government/People 50% on cost of health care, and that is why ALL Conservative parties, repeat the Conservatives parties, in Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia, etc. are 100% for their Universal nationalized health care systems - More Here.
It gets even worst - at the End China is going to Win in Afghanistan
As bad as the above facts are, as much as they indicate that Republicans and the right-wing Media, which is 98% of US Media, will say any LIES and non-sense to get away with the Con Job that they are running on American people, the even worse fact, well prediction which is based on facts, is that at the end of US wasting $1-Trillion of American Tax payers money on the totally unnecessary Afghanistan War, it is predicted that China will be the real winner in Afghanistan given the facts that:
1- Afghanistan has enormous natural resources which can be only brought to market by substantial outside investments, sort of things that China has been doing from Africa to Brazil
2- China borders Afghanistan - remember this fact
3- Afghan people do not hate the Chinese as they hate the Americans now for 8 years of occupation and killing of their civilians
4- While US has been wasting American Tax payers money on one unnecessary war after another and a Gargantuan Military resulting in HUGE deficits in US, China has been investing in infrastructure during the same time so she can readily move the Afghanistan natural resource from Afghanistan to World markets
In fact the prediction that China will at the end be the real Winner in Afghanistan is made not just by liberal thinkers, but even by the right-wing Media. More on that here:
Who’s Going to Win in Afghanistan? China.
So just think how insane the above facts are, in summary they mean:
1- Us is borrowing $1Trillion from China to fight a totally unnecessary War in Afghanistan, a country that borders China, to bring some stability to Afghanistan - at best.
2- China meanwhile has been using the interest payments on these Trillions of Dollars that it has loaned to US Government for unnecessary Wars in Afghanistan & Iraq to turn China into a modern and thriving economy, where it is the 3rd largest economy in the World and growing MUCH FASTER than US
3- And at the end of this unnecessary War in Afghanistan China is going to be the real winner in Afghanistan
Truly only the REAL ENEMY of American people, would be for the above FACTS, which means that Republicans, Republic-rats and the right-wing Media are the true enemy of American people. What other conclusion can there be?
It gets even Worse: Romney wants to carry the Afghanistan War even longer
Now just think as bad as the above FACTS are, consider this additional FACT that Romney the Republican candidate is even opposed to the Obama Admin indicating that they will (sort of) end the Afghan War by 2014. Since Romney has indicated that this would be "giving to the Terrorist" and that "we should stay the course" and "not cut & run", etc. typical Republican lunatic non-sense. But what else do you expect from them and the right-wing lying US Media! So think what lunatics Republican are, what TRUE ENEMY of the Nation they are, that they say "We are broke", "Deficits Deficits Deficits", "Cut Spending", in opposing any investment (aka Spending) in American People, Cities and States while they instantly approve Spending $200-Bill per year in Afghanistan fighting an enemy that has ZERO Planes, ZERO Ships, ZERO Tanks, ZERO etc. real Weapons, an Afghanistan that borders China, in which Afghanistan China has spend ZERO Dollars in fighting these so called "Terrorist" as a result of which China has a HUGE Surplus vs US having HUGE Deficits, as a result of which China is making 100s and 100s of Billions of Dollars of investment (aka Spending) in High Speed train, Renewable Energy, etc. as a result of which China has 9% growth rate, 4% unemployment, home prices going up nicely, almost ZERO foreclosures, etc. good economic news vs US having high unemployment, low growth rates, record foreclosures, etc. economic misery news.
