I don't know how I missed this:
The US government just dropped the most destructive non-nuclear bomb its military has in it arsenal on Afghanistan. The bomb was supposedly dropped to destroy an “ISIS tunnel” system in the Achin district of the Nangarhar province in Afghanistan.
What is interesting is that it was in this very province where the CIA financed the construction of tunnel systems for the Taliban as a fortress in their fight against the Soviets. Edward Snowden has identified the “ISIS tunnels” as the same tunnels that the CIA financed ...
You can read the rest, including Snowden's tweet, here:
So once again, we fight "enemies" we created who are using the weapons and facilities we paid for and built for them.
Would Hitler have come to power without US and UK support?
Did Mao benefit from the Yale in China program?
If we hadn't goaded Saddam into waging war with Iran, would he have invaded Kuwait?
If we hadn't backed the mujaheddin against the Soviets, would 9/11 have occurred?
And if Truman hadn't foolishly created the CIA, would we even have enemies?
This is all so damn silly.
