The Way Forward in Afghanistan

Erik Prince, the founder of the private security firm formerly known as Blackwater, is making a new pitch for his proposal to turn U.S. combat operations in Afghanistan over to mercenaries.
Price promoted the plan in a YouTube video released Tuesday that coincided with the recent NATO summit in Belgium.
“The Pentagon does what it does and wanted to keep doing the same thing it has done for the last 17 years,” Prince said in the video. He said CIA officers and 6,000 mercenaries should take charge in the conflict.
Prince also said that President Trump has “stayed the course” in Afghanistan so far and that continuing a conventional war in the region is “reckless and it’s irresponsible.”
Prince’s comments come as he faces scrutiny from Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
In late June, it was reported that Mueller had acquired Prince’s communications. Prince, who is the brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, has said he is cooperating with the special counsel.
Mueller is reportedly looking into several 2017 meetings that occurred in the Seychelles during a time period when Prince met with a Russian banker there.
In an interview on Tuesday with The Independent, Prince said he had no concerns about Mueller’s probe.
Prince has pitched Trump before on privatizing the war in Afghanistan. But The Independent reported that senior members of the Trump administration have rejected the proposal.
ABC News reported that Prince hopes the new video reaches “decision makers.”
“We have to get it right. Pulling out of Afghanistan is not the answer,” Prince said in the video. “A smaller more unconventional approach is necessary.”
ABC News reports that Prince has a lot of experience building contractor forces in Afghanistan and other countries as the former head of Blackwater and as the current chairman of Frontier Services Group.
Across the U.S., heroin use has skyrocketed. But how are these drugs getting into the country, and is the CIA back to its old tricks, using drugs money to fund covert operations?
By Victor Thorn —
The tragic overdose death of Academy Award winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman on February 2, brought renewed interest to the subject of cheap heroin on America’s streets. Across the country, heroin use is on the rise, despite the billions of dollars spent by United States law enforcement fighting it. Recently, southwestern Pennsylvania suffered 22 overdoses in little more than a week’s time from tainted heroin, and dozens of users were hospitalized in Camden, New Jersey due to a highly potent batch that was being sold on the streets of that city.
One of the big questions asked by naïve media talking heads is: Where does all of this heroin come from? The answer is the same as it was a decade ago following a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-led invasion of Afghanistan: 75%-80% of the world’s heroin is exported from Afghanistan. In spite of the fact that the U.S. military controls a great deal of that mountainous country, production levels hit record highs last year.
Even though President Trump called for the death penalty for drug dealers, he is clearly not going to arrest any of the elite drug traffickers exposed by Dr. John Coleman, whose father was a member of MI6. Dr. Coleman had access to the British museum where he viewed documents containing secret information about the Committee of 300 before he relocated to America to expose the tyranny of the British Crown and the other elite “families” to the world.
After all, the CIA’s drug trade is propping up Wallstreet. We are expecting a collapse of the debt based fiat monetary “system” in the very near future, and the elite are grasping for straws.
With INTERPOL controlling the US Justice Department and FBI, we cannot even hope for an end to the criminality of the US government unless we fight back and restore the rule of law and the organic Constitution.
Blackwater is a disaster as evidenced by the recent capture of one of their commanders in Yemen (which is an illegal and unconstitutional war). I hate to think what would happen if Blackwater was unleashed on the United States due to the fake “war on drugs”.
