“Merci” French Ambassador Bernard Bajolet for his Honest Swan Song on Afghanistan:“Catastrophe”!!
Once again the American spin machine about improved military, political, and economic progress has been shown to be a DEFINITE LIE! It is once again a discredit to our military personnel everywhere, every time.
As usual our top brass who probably never heard of the US MILITARY CATASTROPHE called VietNam and our so-called successful body count reporting has once again gone into SELF-DELUSION.
Here is what our new US Marine Corps Commander General Joseph F. Dunford, Jr.[‘Fighting Joe’] said of US and international efforts to make Afghanistan free of corruption and independent:
“Very soon the Afghan National Security Force [A.N. S. F.] will be RESPONSIBLE [my emphasis] for SECURITY NATIONWIDE”.
And adding insult to injury, once again our Senior Military Officers including his predecessor US Marine Corps General John R. Allen who was summarily dismissed for ‘inappropriate communications’ whatever that means- have insisted on maintaining lies to the US CITIZENS about the so-called ‘SUCCESS’ of their respective military campaigns.
This statement comes on top of US Marine Corps General Joseph Matthis [“Mad Dog”] assurances of stability in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
Next we have a slew of other SELF-DELUSIONAL Military Leaders: Admiral Mike Mullen; US Army General David Petraeus; US Army General Martin Dempsey; et al.
You get the idea, my dear readers. The greater the amount of FRUIT SALAD on their respective chests---the GREATER the HYPERBOLE and LIES.
So what prompted this blog?
The French Ambassador to Kabul, Bernard Bajolet, the next Director of Frances Direction Generale de la Securite, it’s foreign intelligence service [extremely good from my experience—often called ‘la piscine’] made the following summation of the situation in Afghanistan:
--He called the Afghan Situation a PERFECT STORM of political, economic, and military failures.
--‘We do not have enough distance to make an OBJECTIVE ASSESSMENT [my emphasis], but in any case, I think it crucial for the AFGHAN HIGHEST LEADERSHIP [read ex-Maryland Deli owner , CIA/Unocal operative—Hamid Karzai] take more VISIBLE and OBVIOUS OWNERSHIP OF THE THEIR ARMY’
--Afghan Govt has to cut CORRUPTION which discourages investments, and DEAL WITH DRUGS and BECOME FISCALLY SELF –RELIANT.
--He said what everyone else but our own US GENERALS/POTUS would not admit that “Afghanistan has become the world’s LARGEST SUPPLIER OF HEROIN!!!!!”
And more IMPORTANTLY, he added,“Heroin trafficking in AFGHANISTAN causes more casualties than terrorism!”...
