Afghanistan : Recent Quote By Peter MacKay

Post by AGENT-784 » Wed Feb 11, 2009 3:28 pm

"Afghanistan was the largest exporter of terror in our lifetime so our efforts there to bring about some semblance of security and democracy continue to be a very worthy cause," MacKay told reporters.

Canadian Defense Minister Peter MacKay said on Monday that the rising cost of the country's military mission in Afghanistan was worth the expense, even though the economic crisis is starting to bite hard.

That quote should cause Canadians to wonder about the origin of Mr. MacKay's assertion.

Have people forgotten that the CIA covertly supported the Islamic ideaology of the Mujahideen prior to the Soviet intervention ?
Have people forgotten that Hamid Karzai, was a CIA operative, allied with the Taliban, Osama bin Laden, and by default, al-Qaida ?
Have people forgotten how harshly the Taliban regime dealt with "evil" Communists ?
Have people forgotten how the Taliban regime had eradicated much of the opium harvest by 2001 ?
Have people forgotten that Hamid Karzai rejected a proposal to end poppy production with the use of herbicides ?

Is the root cause of this military occupation actually as popularly advertised...Is it about Terrorism...Is it about Security for the Afghan people...Is it about Democracy for the Afghan people ?

Do people think that the CIA were just a bunch of nice guys when they acted as the cornerstone for the Afghan resistance to Soviet occupation...Never forget that the CIA was created to protect the interests of private corporations...It was never created to protect the interests of the American people.

The CIA support was largely a down payment from the OilCorps...The rest of the deal was a pipeline to be installed through Afghan real estate...The Taliban regime would not allow it...

So what are the players left with ?

Afghan people...Precious little, unless misery and depleted uranium count.
Corporations...The Dick Cheney gang get to funnel massive tax dollars through the war pipeline.
Warlords...Poppy fields.
Victims of 911...Justice, NOT a chance.
American people...Unrivaled militarism, debt, lies.
Peter MacKay...like the rest of us, sadly in need of an unbiased, unshackled news source.

imo, we should at this point try to make preace, not war, with the Taliban.

we bombed the crap out of them, maybe its time to talk and try to turn them to own side aginst bin laden and Al Queda? would be a blown to them, and they tried the same with europe (thur the euros turned them down).

And if that unbiased, unshackled news source shows everything you wrote to be mistaken?

Bin Laden and the Taliban bear a striking resemblance to Goldstein.

Read into that what you will.

If that is to be the case, then all Canadians should completely believe Peter MacKay's statement, and allow him complete, unlimited spending of fellow Canadian's tax dollars in Afghanistan. Don't bother to factor in the state of the economy, domestic, or otherwise.

If that is to be the case, then all Canadians should completely believe that the CIA is a charitable organization...whose covert operations, past, present, and future...not limited to drug trafficking, murder, and cover-ups on foreign soil are all noble deeds...which can never be defined as the "export of terrorism"...not by the filtered media, or anyone else.


If that is to be the case, then all Canadians should completely believe that the endless military operations in Afghanistan has brought, and will continue to bring Justice to the Victims of 911.

You know these people because the corporate media, and the wealthy who filter it, rank them as "news-makers".

On the other hand, Goldstein, who is acknowledged in another topic on this board, holds no such rank, mostly because he doesn't generate the mind-numbing advertising dollars.

From my point of view, he's just another "enemy" of the state, a dime-a-dozen, "evil", communist conspirator. Never mind any of the insights which he provides.

Actually the Goldstein that I was referring to was the Party's propaganda boogey-man in Orwell's 1984.

Lets not forget that a short 30 years ago kandahar was a very green lush bustling city. Lets not forget women used to be treated with a little respect, now there are lower then a dog. Lerts not forget ,that koran says nothing about women having to wear a face covering, now they do because the men want total domination over women. Afghanis women are the most oppressed women in the world, but not a peep out of women organizations, unless they are critizing the harper goverment. Some of these women groups I think only worry about themselves ,and to hades with the rest in the world. Any women in this country that is not supporting the cause in afghanistan are very selfish.IMO
