FACT CHECK: No, Biden is NOT Ending the War in Afghanistan, He’s Just Rebranding It

Americans on both the right and the left celebrated the words of Joe Biden’s April 14th speech in which he said, “ it’s time to end the forever war….It is time for American troops to come home.” After all, the idea of ending the brutal occupation of Afghanistan is appealing, but Biden was lying through his teeth.

“War in Afghanistan was never meant to be a multigenerational undertaking,” Biden said. “We were attacked. We went to war with clear goals. We achieved those objectives. Bin Laden is dead and al Qaeda is degraded in Afghanistan.”

Exactly what “objectives” the president was talking about remain unclear, however. Did he mean the epidemic of veteran and active duty suicides skyrocketing as a result of PTSD? Was one of the objectives to kill thousands of US troops and maim, mangle, and mentally destroy tens of thousands of others?

What about Afghanistan, was one of the objectives to destabilize the entire country and turn it into a pit of rubble? Because that certainly happened.

Was another objective to create a breeding ground for Islamist extremism by constantly blowing up innocent civilians ensuring an assembly line of pissed-off Afghans who justly call for the blood of those who dropped bombs on them for decades?

Was the objective to spend trillions of dollars in taxpayer money and future debt and get absolutely nothing in return?

If these were the objectives, by all means, the Biden administration deserves a pat on the back, because, for eight years, they helped to accomplish these objectives. Just like Bush and Cheney before them and Trump and Pence after them, the establishment’s objective of perpetual war did nothing to bolster the freedom and quality of life for Americans and everything to turn the Middle East into a hellscape of death, destruction, and suffering.

To be clear, no one here at the Free Thought Project disputes that it is time to end this war and bring the troops home. The American military never should have been there to begin with and America’s presence there has only served to further destabilize, destroy, and create a breeding ground for terrorism.

The Biden administration knows this. They also know that anyone who declares an end to the Afghan war is lying through their teeth, including Joe Biden. But don’t take our word for it, let’s see what the pro-Biden media has to say about it.

Not 24 hours after Biden declared the war in Afghanistan to be over, the New York Times reported “the Pentagon, American spy agencies and Western allies are refining plans to deploy a less visible but still potent force in the region.”

Wait what? I thought our lord and savior Biden said the war was over? How are all these facets going to remain and the war be over?

In the Times article, former CIA officer and counterterrorism expert Marc Polymeropoulos explained in essence that the war will certainly continue, it’s merely changing shape.

“What we are really talking about are how to collect intelligence and then act against terrorist targets without any infrastructure or personnel in the country other than essentially the embassy in Kabul,” he said.

With no “troops” on the ground, CIA and “black” special operations will continue, some of it based in neighboring countries, while a combination of “trainers,” contractors, and non-military assets (e.g., DEA, FBI, State Department) will continue. And of course, given that air and drone strikes are the epitome of counter-terrorism, high-value targeting will continue against al-Qaida and ISIS, and even the Taliban, just from remote bases.

How can Biden declare war to be over if he is still raining down hellfire missiles inside the borders of the country? He can’t. That’s why he’s lying. What he really meant to say is that America’s war machine is simply changing shape and death and destruction will continue to take place — in the name of “spreading democracy” — but it will happen remotely from Georgia, Maryland, South Carolina, and other states instead.

If you want a glimpse into the future of a “remote” war in Afghanistan, you need only look at the hellish scenarios produced by similar tactics in US proxy wars in Yemen, Syria, and Somalia.

What’s more, also absent from Biden’s speech is the fact that the US taxpayers are currently footing the bill, according to the Times, for “[m]ore than 16,000 civilian contractors, including over 6,000 Americans, [who] now provide security, logistics and other support in Afghanistan.”

Is it not considered war when taxpayer dollars flow to private mercenaries to carry out death and destruction in America’s name? If it is not war, then is it a conspiracy to commit murder on a massive scale by hiring thousands of hitmen?

According to a recent analysis from Brown University called the Cost of War Project, the size and scope of the suffering and debt caused by the Afghan war alone, is unfathomable and nearly limitless.

On top of more than 2 trillion in taxpayer dollars paying for decades of senseless violence in Afghanistan, the human toll is soul-crushing. The analysis estimates that 241,000 people have lost their lives in the Afghanistan War, including 2,442 US military service members, nearly 4,000 US contractors, and more than 71,000 civilians.

However, these numbers are likely five to ten times higher or more because they do not take into account indirect deaths due to hunger, disease, water shortages, and more that stem from the horrors of the US conducting war in the region.

After two decades of fighting, neither al-Qaida nor the Taliban have been eliminated, ISIS has emerged, and radical Islam has expanded. Countless veterans suffer daily and so do the families of those who never came home — and it was all for nothing. When will this horror actually end?

Anything short of a complete withdraw of all US funding, assets, contractors, troops, equipment, and yes, remote operations, would be a complete insult to the lives lost in America’s longest quagmire. Anyone who claims the war has ended without explicitly naming everything in this list is lying through their teeth. And that includes the Commander-in-Chief.

      So glad that I did not have children in this country where the governments, health care sector, and corporations are perpetrating extortion and cold blooded murder en masse in broad daylight! I know that taxation is referred to as extortion, which it is, because people do not have an option other than prison, but this level of extortion far exceeds that. Now, since most people no longer have money that can be extorted by them, they are extorting data, dna, histories, health records, and anything that they can. Obviously the lock downs were used as forms of extortion to force businesses and property owners into bankruptcy to sell on the fly at rock bottom prices as well. 

      If you are a woman in America of child bearing age, do not have children. The people running this country are cold blooded mass murderers and extortionists, and they have tons of helpers that they have enlisted. These people are sadistic. They do it for the sheer thrill of watching their victims suffer.

      Evil, crazy, retarded, serial criminal psychopaths is now the norm in America.

      Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia.

      You ultimately have to make peace with the fact that you cannot rescue any of these people from a one-dimensional, one-track, careerist, political, or ideological mentality, past some point in which they have arguably parted with their humanity. And, when I say arguable, don’t. Radicals, addicts, and personality cultists.

      Everything about data farmers and spies is instinctually resistable. 
      Everything about data farmers and spies is as resistable as leprosy.
      Everything that data farmers and spies do is a crime against humanity.
      Everything about data farmers and spies is totally parasitic.
      Everything involving data farming and spying is theft.
      Data farmers and spies have posed a clear and present danger to humanity.
      There has never been more sureveillance and there has never been more crime.
      Data farmers and spies cannibalize their victims and then want to kill and destroy them after farming their victims for their own fraudulent consumption and narcisstic glorification.
      It is either the data farmers and spies, or everyone else. everyone else cannot coexist with data farmers and spies anymore than they can coexist with flesh eating bacteria.

      Data farmers and spies know that what they are doing is 100% illegal, so they deny it and say that their victims are imagining it and mentally ill, which is libelous and slanderous, in addition to bearing false witness and perjury. Data farmers and spies are psychopaths. I am surrounded by them. Data farming and spying is not new and it is not normal. Only people with deviant personality disorder and psychopathy are data farmers and spies. The crimes of data farming and spying require that data farmers and spies have no respect for the rights of others. It is sick as hell. It rewards the corrupt and the mentally incompetent at the expense of the competent and innocent. Either the data farming and spying will stop, or the data farmers and spies will destroy the world and everyone in it because they are completely mentally incompetent and completely corrupt. They would not be data farming and spying if they were intelligent and honest. Data farmers and spies are genetically inferior mutants. Their actions and life styles are the only proof required to prove the last sentence. Now the data farmers and spies are claiming tbat they are spying on viruses. Data farmers and spies have diseased minds. Data farmers and spies try to claim that they are data farming and spying on people to advertise to people. Data farmers and spies do not have any right to invade people’s lives to try to sell them something. It is also a lie that that is why they data farm and spy. They do it for data theft purposes because they are unimaginative mentally incompetent thieves, not for advertising purposes. Only people with diseased minds would claim that they are data farming and spying for the good of the public, or for advertising. That would be the most cost ineffective advertising imaginable! Pouring through tons of data to get someone to click on an ad or to order a pizza?! Who in the hell do you think that you are kidding?! These are the rationalizations of addicts. They are addicted to data farming and spying. If drinking a glass of wine is good for your heart, drinking three bottles of wine will really make you super human. Is there really any difference between taking narcotics after surgery or getting a splinter? Cocaine was originally used by dentists, which are doctors, so doctors recommend using cocaine. Bill W. had his spiritual awakenning on LSD, so if AA is really going to be effective, everyone has to drop acid at AA meetings.

      It appears as though the cops were responsible for the Wisconsin Oneida cassino shooting last night, like the cops were responsible for the 10/01/17 Life is Beautiful massacre.

      Cassinos have a ton of cash on hand, which would certainly be a motive for the cops to do that.

      Conflicting reports are surfacing from initial reports. Initially the police stated that they had the suspect in custody. Now it is being reported that the cops killed the suspect.

      Initial reports were that there was a shooter with an AR-15 and that at least twenty shots were fired. 50 police cars quickly swarmed the area and cops entered. Now it is reported someone saw the cop walk in with an AR-15. I have never seen a cop carry an AR-15 before on duty before in my life.

      The name of the deceased suspect has not been released yet. I realize that next of kin is always notified before the name is released to the press. Police claim that they believe that the shooter intended to kill a specific person that worked at the cassino. Previously it was reported that the shooter was a disgruntled employee, which has disappeared from headlines as well. Police are also claiming that since the intended target was not present at the shooting, the shooter just shot friends and co-workers of the intended target instead.

      Oneida also said last night that they would be closed until further notice. This morning they said they have reopened for business. 

      It was noted that at the Life is Beautiful Massacre, CEO David Muren and George Soros shorted stock prior to the massacre. If both of these cassinos were in financial trouble they may have resorted to such evil behavior. The mafia is known to be involed in cassinos. Ironically, both shootings occured during key events in the Netenyahu corruption scandal. The Mossad sent a letter to the State Department warning of Jewish mafia involvement in cassinos, which was on Wikileaks website. The cops are trained in Israel now also. It is not uncommon for LEOs to be on both sides of the coin in organized crime, tragically, it is the norm rather than the exception. The police state surveillance state is a magnet for the most evil, unethical, unscrupulous, deviant psychopaths, which explains why America is the way that it is.

      D.C. politicians often lie to the Citizenry. Tyler Durden recently wrote about a phrase of which I was NOT familiar. The phrase was COBRA EFFECT. Decide for yourself if the governance of the USA today is not rife with this problem.

      I really have to laugh at the Europeans, Asians, and Latin Americans for saying that America suffers from systemic racism, considering that America elected Obama, Kamala Harris as VP, and has many black and black and Hispanic politicians, business leaders, and rich and powerful people in the entertainment, music, and athletic industries. If America suffered from systemic racism, this would not be permitted. America has passed the days of Jackie Robinson. I have to agree that today, now more than ever that the “soft bigotry of low expectations” is the most prevalent form of systemic racism practiced, and it really has to stop immediately.

      They are panicking because they know that their narrative of systemic racism has been blown to smitherines. Of course there are racist people in America. It has been duly noted that the current racism that is being practiced is anti- white Christian racism in addition to anti-Islamic discrimination.

      A proof in point of the hypocrisy is that in 2014 Spain had a town named “Castrillo Matajudios” or “Fort Kill The Jews”, They voted to change the name, but as far as the Spanish town Valle de Matamoros or “Kill the Moors Valley,” America suffers from systemic racism. 

      And there is also the Mexican city named Matamoros, or “Kill the Moors.”

      Imagine if a white American Christian proposed such names for towns, streets, schools, or anything else for that matter.

      It is just another day in America of being slowly tortured and cannibalized to death by the psychopaths in the surveillance state. It is only going to get worse, unfortunately. It is HUGE, unfortunately, and it is also only getting HUGER! America will never be great again. It is just not in the cards. Anyone who says otherwise is lying point blank.
