Bags of cash

PostBy: grumpy On: Mon Apr 29, 2013 10:43 pm

KABUL, Afghanistan — For more than a decade, wads of American dollars packed into suitcases, backpacks and, on occasion, plastic shopping bags have been dropped off every month or so at the offices of Afghanistan’s president — courtesy of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Just like the Good Old USA where you get the best form of Gov. that money can buy, they were molded the same way we operate. The biggest difference is the cost of American lives for nothing, truly sad.

It seems to me the beginning of the end of Karzai. Leaking this will justify an eventual deal with the Taliban.

Afghanistan has historically been referred to as the place where empires go to die. I believe it is more correctly the place where dead empires finally face the reality that they are dead.

We bargain with terrorists over oil continually. Everything we do in the middle east involves oil, and our desire to maintain control over a goodly share of it. Nothing our nation does these days involves morality or justice. Those concepts are merely smoke and mirrors used to bring the sheeple at home into line with the governments whims and desires.

"Ghost Money" fitting...considering it comes directly from an agency referred to as Spooks.

I'm not surprised.

And the sooner more people wake up to this, the sooner we can get back to the original intent of this country.

In Johannesburg, South Africa a multi-billion dollar company called 'Sasol' has been making about 30,000 barrels of oil per day from natural gas for decades now. Now that fracking is making natural gas like its going out of style, perhaps we can do likewise. The same process can also make oil from coal. Admittedly 30,000 barrels per day is childs play vs. the millions of barrels of oil that we need per day. Off the top of my head, 27 million barrels of crude oil daily needed for the USA alone comes to mind. 87 million barrels used per day for the world.

The two biggest US players that I've discovered playing in this ballpark are Rentech and Syntroleum. Both are effectively only future dreams compared to the reality of Sasol.

Does anyone believe that there will be an Oliver North type Inquisition over the tribute that we have been paying to Karzai?

Will the sequestration impact the tribute?

Questions, questions.

The CIA has assured Karzai that the endless drop-offs of bags of cash will continue. No sequestration disruption of the all important cash flow here. Let the American citizens suffer from sequestration. The crooks in the Afghan government (our chosen boys) must be satiated with cash.
