The Fruits of US Foreign Policy

The war in Iraq was so bad for so many reasons, many of which most people already understand. But the subsequent occupation took the insanity to a whole new level. Who remembers the pallets of cash that vanished in Iraq? All the money that just disappeared?

And then in an even greater attempt at pure folly, someone thought it would be a good idea to train the Iraqis to defend themselves, so that we could bring the troops home. This was actually a talking point at one point. What a great idea!

Except that it was a colossally stupid idea. Who were we training? Who were we dumping all that money on? How could we possibly expect them not to roll over in a few years after enough arms and supplies have been built up in the region? And low and behold, that's exactly what has happened. One of Iraq's largest cities has fallen, without resistance. They just rolled over and gave al qaeda god knows who hundreds of millions in cash and we can only speculate on the amounts in arms. This is by far the biggest blunder in this farce that is called the "war on terror". Need I remind you that 9/11 was supposedly funded with just a small fraction of the money that has been captured in Iraq in the last month alone?

So now we have potential terrorist groups with access to enough funds to sponsor a hundred 9/11s. We have no idea where that money is going to go, or how it will be used, to say nothing of the weapons. And if you've read my writings on steganography, you already know that the NSA cant do a damn thing to intercept communications of those who use steganographic encryption. The amount of money that has the potential to blowback onto the american people is increasing exponentially. It is only a question of how, when, and at what point the american people demand that this folly be stopped.

We know that the US government has been directly implicated in arming the enemy in Libya. But this takes it to a whole new level. What do you call it when you invest billions of dollars arming a country like Iraq, when you know damn well they will just roll over when pushed, and hand over all that we foolishly gave them? What do you call that? Washington may think they used plenty of CYA ointment for this little debacle, but I dont see it that way. The proper people need to be held responsible for this predictable chain of events, as well as the consequences bound to follow.
