As the United States is only halfway through finally withdrawing from the horrendous war on Afghanistan, the military-industrial complex has come forward confirming the unfortunate yet unsurprising — Even when it’s over, it’s never REALLY over.
According to The Defense Post, on Tuesday, June 8th, acting Air Force Secretary John P. Roth revealed to members of the Senate Appropriations defense subcommittee that the Air Force was “preparing for ‘over-the-horizon’ strike capabilities in Afghanistan following the withdrawal of American troops from the country”.
“Post-withdrawal strike capability”, in other words, meaning “even after we no longer have boots on the ground, we’re still going to bomb you into oblivion”….
This comes as no surprise as the Biden Administration has openly fed the war machine since taking office. On the very first day of Joe Biden’s presidency a large US military Convoy was documented entering into Syria.
Shortly thereafter, not even 2 months into the presidency Biden followed in the footsteps of his predecessors by authorizing (illegally) an explosive bombardment in Syria.
Just as much then, as it is now with the news of these prolonged bombardments in Afghanistan, more than likely much to the delight of recently appointed US Defense Secretary, Lloyd Austin — Formally a board member for a weapons manufacturer Raytheon, who has been handing out billion dollar contracts to his former employer like candy.
