  •  The weapons testing is one angle. (0+ / 0-)

    You have to have somewhere to test these weapons on people.  Somewhere other people will buy you killing them, for whatever reason you say.

    •  Who will guard the sands of Afghanistan... (0+ / 0-)

      ... that allegedly have One Trillion Dollars worth of valuable metals and lithium and whatever else if weapons have polluted those sands with things like depleted uranium from US bombs...?  We were told about the poppy fields and that the export of opium has increased since the US invaded, but we were not told how "valuable" the sands of Afghanistan are alleged to be.  I picture US mining corporations salivating over the riches they would like to claim.

      I, for one, do NOT approve of testing weapons in Afghanistan - or anywhere else in the world, inside or outside the US.

      They're asking for another four years -- in a just world, they'd get 10 to 20. ~~ Dennis Kucinich
