    What a surprise! How do you think we financed the "Freedom Fighters" that kicked out the USSR? And what happened to the USSR's Karzai?

    If he's foolish enough to stay in Afghanistan after we leave he won't have much time to spend it.


    Er, just which U.S. businesses (aside from heroin importers and dealers) are exploiting their resources?

    That money is used to bribe the warlords, we'll continue giving it to him after the troops leave. That's our insane foreign policy, buy the leaders to allow our corporations to exploit their resources and maintain our ability to undermine the rest of the region.

    That's the main one, but there are many companies drooling to operate in Afghanistan.

    Your source is a CofC booster rag, not exactly hard evidence.
