The Afghanda…. U.S. Paternalism with a touch of Manifest Destiny.

President Obama made much glowing talk about all the “help” that “we’re giving” Afghanistan, building roads for the use of “our” military transports, schools where “we” get to teach their kids to be Corporate Slaves just like the kids in Amerika. A centralized Police State government which is under “our” control.
The wonderful security enjoyed by prisoners everywhere.
Rescuing the Afghans from having to make decisions based on their needs rather than “our” corporate needs.
But, of course, “we” didn’t bomb them into rubble and then bomb the rubble and invade and control and kill any who “we” can’t control for the Glowing Purpose Mr Obama praised so highly, to help the Afghan people in any way.

It’s been said by many politicians in America that “we” need to control commerce in the world, that “we” need to have a global economy under “our” management. Capitalism, it seems, isn’t strong enough to stand alone, it requires Mandatory Participation by everybody, propped up by the expenditures of Government Money, obtained either through taxation of the citizens of the United States or, like in Iraq, Tribute Monies in the form of exclusive contracts for extraction of Oil and other resources.

Already there are many Desk Pilots on Wall Street practically wetting themselves over the prospect of mineral riches in Afghanistan “paying for the liberation of those Resources errr People”, yeah, that’s the official story line, People.

After all, if God hadn’t intended for “us” to be their Masters and Rulers Liberators and Guardians, why would He have put “our” oil and other resources under their ground?
And of course they’re too stupid to be trusted with the majority or even a sizable minority of the profits to enrich their own people, no, they’ll be given the same consideration “we” give other Puppet Dictatorship “citizens”, a wage scale so low they’ll never have the opportunity to compete with their Masters.

The most cogent reasons given for invading err “liberating” Afghanistan were given over the decade preceding the takeover and are very stark, very honest. Very Brutal. In the documentation of the Project for the New American Century.

Pure economic domination of the entire world. Tribute paid from all the world to the Mighty 1%,
Economic Development directed by, and for the benefit of, Only The Wealthiest. Who believe that their wealth comes not from convincing other people to go and fight and kill in order to rob other people of THEIR OWN RESOURCES but somehow, it’s their own industriousness.

Those who wouldn’t stoop to pick up a hundred dollar bill because it’s chump change to them, demanding that the people of the world, including America, accept whatever slave wages they offer, in order to produce the wealth that only The Richest will share.

Trickle Down “free market” Reaganomics at its naked core.
