Please read the whole article Here at Veterans Today Americans and Northern Alliance “Friends”…False Flag Terror, Drugs, Staged “Taliban” Attacks
by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

An insightful and timely piece given 9/11 anniversary just past. The truth of what is happening in Afghanistan to Afghans and people of the world.

To my mind, a people's history of the events that occured on 9/11 will be seen as the first overt act of WWIII an act of war on Human Nature, to strip away a sense of ourselves. History is usually written and taught to the masses by the victor. I hope that it will be written by the people, not some oxbridge/harvard business school don.

This Addendum sums up succinctly, The Afghan War

A Note on Training an Army

In 1968 and 1969 at the height of the Vietnam War, the United States Marine Corps maintained two training facilities, one at San Diego, MCRD, and one in South Carolina, Parris Island.

Each facility had one training Regiment with 48 training platoons each. There were a total of 96 platoons with 3 training NCO’s each, called “drill instructors.” These units turned out the best trained soldiers in the world.

The entire United States Marine Corps was trained by 288 drill instructors in 8 week sessions who turned out about 8000 Marines. Three sessions, totalling 24 weeks, was adequate to supply the entire combat contingent that successfully held the northern half of Vietnam.

These units, which included as few as 9000 combat soldiers at one time (casualties and rotation), saw the majority of the combat during the Vietnam War. When they left their areas of operation they had 100% control during the day and 65% control at night against an enemy that could conquer Afghanistan, Pakistan and probably India as well and have time for lunch.

During the Second World War, a similar force, abandoned with no fire support, food and little ammunition defeated half the miliary forces of Japan on the island of Guadalcanal. In 1918, the 5th Marines, a much smaller unit, stopped the entire German army at Belleau Wood. I belonged to both of these units. For each unit, this was their first combat experience, all were “raw recruits.”

We have been training the Army of Afghanistan and their police force using over 12,000 trainers for 11 years and have created a force that controls 10% of a nation when augmented with a massive US force.

On their own, they hold 0% of Afghanistan.

Great read! hi5.gif Lies upon lies, a war for control of drugs, oil and resources is all this war is, just like the rest of the vast majority of wars. A non existent enemy can never be beaten, therefore; it the so called war can be fought perpetually. Suicide rates among US soldiers are astronomical - they don't like what they are doing, it's quite evident. coffeetime.gif
