It is known as WAR PROFITEERING, and it has been around since the first war.

The difference with Afghanistan is how millions upon millions of dollars went unaccounted for, and there were many profiteers in many countries who got rich off of this so called war. Let alone the complicity in the drug traffic.

The old saw, "follow the money", is an impossible game of chutes and ladders with snakes eating their rattlers, but it was FOR A SELECT FEW, the greatest business opportunity of their lifetime.

Just as Vietnam was for LBJ Texas cronies.
Hi Gordon,

One thing I love about you is you tell 'em like you see 'em, and you don't hold back!

I haven't looked into the profiteering in the Afghan war, but you're right, undoubtedly there was a truckload... jumbo-jet load... maybe aircraft-carrier load? of profiteering going on...

So, for the profiteers, the war was most likely a huge success...

Best wishes,
