On April 13th, 2017, the U.S. military dropped a massive 21,000-pound bomb on ISIS tunnels in eastern Afghanistan called the Mother of all bombs or moab. It cost 16 million dollars to make, and 300 million to develop. It has a 1 mile blast radius, and broke windows hundred of miles away. It was the first time we have used a bomb this large in combat since WW2. Trump has checked off another campaign promise to “Bomb the shit out of ISIS”.
The ISIS cave network we bombed was built by Osama Bin Laden with the help of the CIA. When we were paying the mujahedeen to fight the Russian occupation in Afghanistan, Osama brought in dozens of expensive construction equipment from his fathers construction company to create the network of caves and hideouts.
“The cave complex had been so refined that it was said to have its own ventilation system and a power system created by a series of hydroelectric generators. Tora Bora’s walls and the floors of its hundreds of rooms were finished and smooth and extended some 350 yards into the granite mountain that enveloped them.”
Makes you wonder where the middle east would be without the CIA meddling in its affairs. In this instance, we wouldn’t have had to waste 16 million dollars destroying a cave network we funded the creation of. We spent over 500 million dollars on this future ISIS group. The group that claimed responsibility for 9/11.
After 9/11, the US decided to stop funding the terrorist organization it had created, but the bill was picked up by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, and others.
“Everybody knows the money is going through Kuwait and that it’s coming from the Arab Gulf,” said Andrew Tabler, senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. “Kuwait’s banking system and its money changers have long been a huge problem because they are a major conduit for money to extremist groups in Syria and now Iraq.”
After we took Saddam out of power, we told his baathist political party they were not allowed to be a part of the newly formed government in Iraq. So the former ruling elite, with no place to go, joined up with ISIS. This was after Obama pulled our troops out of Iraq in 2011.
The CIA then orchestrated the Arab Spring in Yemen, Egypt, Tunisia and Syria. Using the same tactics they used to destabilize South American countries in the past. We paid for it with the 8 billion dollars lost while “rebuiling Iraq”. They objective was just to create chaos and disorder, therefore strengthening our ally Israel. The same ally we spend 3 billion a year on, who has over 200 nukes, refuses to let UN inspectors in, and regularly commits war crimes with the use depleted uranium and phosphorus weapons.
The fall of Libya was orchestrated by the US as well. First we funded the rebels that were against Gaddafi in 2011. The newly funded Ansar Al-Sharia then attacked our embassy and killed our ambassador as well as his security force. Hillary Clinton had provided the funding to these rebels to oust Gaddafi, which they did successfully. Now Libya is a failed state just like we wanted. With it being controlled by three rival rebel groups, the real power lies in the hands of armed militias. The slave trade is now alive and booming in Libya as well.
