James Corbett knocks it out of the park again with this clip, which so succinctly and eloquently explains one of the major reasons why the US military’s occupation of Afghanistan continues on the eve of its 15th anniversary, despite the CIA bogey man having been dumped into the Indian Ocean in accordance with “Islamic Principles” (sic).

Most people would be surprised to know that the perversely-named Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) comprises several subordinate operations:

Operation Enduring Freedom – Afghanistan (OEF-A. Now called Operation Freedom’s Sentinel)

Operation Enduring Freedom – Philippines (OEF-P. Formerly Operation Freedom Eagle)

Operation Enduring Freedom –  Horn of Africa (OEF-HOA)

Operation Enduring Freedom – Pankisi Gorge (Georgia Train and Equip Program [GTEP])

Operation Enduring Freedom – Trans Sahara (OEF-TS)

Operation Enduring Freedom – Caribbean and Central America (OEF- CCA)

Operation Enduring Freedom – Kyrgyzstan

…and we’re only talking about OEF! Don’t forget the roughly 800 US military bases in foreign countries and the major US-NATO Operation Baltic Fortress, which  includes discussions with US defense contractors to create a regional anti-aircraft missile shield to protect against Russian aircraft – which can easily be adapted into an offensive array…and God knows how many other secretive operations ravenously consuming the US Treasury, plunging the Empire into uncharted debt.

  • The world is clearly divided between the East and the West, and this dichotomy has been in conflict for over 6,000 years now. Nobody on earth even knows what started the war. Who is orchestrating this nightmare?
