The real story here imvho, is that China has won the prize, access to Afghanistan's vast mineral resources, lithium, copper etc. And it has done so using soft power. Probably a lesson in there for us somewhere if we care to dig around.

But never fear brothers, the neocons have already selected their next target for regime change and that country is none other than Turkey. Before we know it we'll have completely forgotten all about this project and will have immersed ourselves in the next one, a country orders of magnitude larger and more powerful than Afghanistan.. John Bolton is already on the case and I have absolutely no doubt that this Turkey project will be every bit the smashing success that all of the other neocon regime change projects that have come before it have been.

With a foreign policy track record like the neocons have it is little wonder their ideas continue to shape US foreign policy Smile

So where did all those trillions of dollars go anyway?

This is Uzbek warlord Rashid Dostum's pad. These kinds of palaces are a common site around Kabul. It was a giant slush fund.

US Treasury Freezes Billions In Afghan Reserves, Depriving Taliban of Cash



Biden freezes Afghan government reserves held in U.S. bank accounts, and blocks the Taliban from accessing billions of dollars held in U.S. institutions, according to the Washington Post.


The decision was made by Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and officials in Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, the people said. The State Department was also involved in discussions this weekend, with officials in the White House monitoring the developments. An administration official said in a statement, “Any Central Bank assets the Afghan government have in the United States will not be made available to the Taliban.” The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss government policy not yet made public.


As of April, the Afghan central bank held $9.4 billion reserve assets according to the International Monetary Fund – roughly one third of the country’s annual economic output. The vast majority are held outside of the country, according to the Post, billions of which are in the United States.

No surprise considering they withdrew our troops before evacuating our citizens. Huh

If the Taliban plays their cards right, and so far they have proven remarkably skillful, they could be looking at formal recognition of their government in Moscow, Beijing and allied regional countries. They could then be fast tracked into the Eurasia system, at which point Chinese reconstruction funds and expertise would begin to flow into the country. This could happen very quickly if, as I said, the Taliban continues to play it's cards skillfully. The US slush fund days are over, but that money never really got out into the country beyond Kabul anyway, that all went to various local power players.

The Biden regime owes us answers ASAP about how they will be vetting the refugee applicants from Afghanistan.

We are dealing with a part of the world that is a hotbed of terrorism and need to be incredibly vigilant.

— Lauren Boebert (@laurenboebert) August 17, 2021


If anything, the Representative from Colorado is being too kind. It’s not just that the region is a hotbed for terrorism. It’s that Afghanistan is the source of and training grounds for some of the most despicable and effective terrorists in the world. It’s a cesspool of anti-American ideology that has always been able to groom suicide bombers with ease. They will do anything, including dying, to push the anti-American message to the world.

And we’re about to open the floodgates with no meaningful way to differentiate between the good guys and those who want to kill us.

One can debate whether or not it’s our responsibility to bring in even more refugees, but we must be certain we’re not importing the source of our own demise in the process. Proper vetting is absolutely essential and the Biden regime seems to have no plan in place.
