“According to the Costs of War Project at Brown University, the Afghan war has cost the American taxpayer $2.13T dollars and over 2,000 US soldiers’ lives. And yet the US has offered financial aid couched in the terms of humanitarian aid to the same people we were trying to kill just 2 months ago, The Taliban leaders. Why? Well it seems that the US is worried that the Taliban may not be able to contain the Islamic State which the US claims is the greatest threat emanating from Afghanistan says Kathy Gannon of the Associated Press. The Taliban has just fought 20 years to eject the US from Afghanistan and 9 years before that fighting Russia. I think they can handle the Islamic State by themselves. They do not need US aid. When will we ever learn?” (10/12/21)
