WHO sneaked into USA empire's neoColonial outpost for the 4th time?
Once again, the sitting WHO(White House Occupier) had to secretly sneak into Kabul in the middle of the night, in order to hector his Invading force, that their service for Operation Enduring Fiefdom in Afghanistan was appreciated by the cabal of Pentagon & Wall Street ruling elite. But the symbolism of Obama's "sneak-and-peek" mid-nite lecture couldn't be more stark for the world to see--here was the "Commander-in-chief" of the world's most lethal War Machine, having to sneak into an American air base in total darkness and secrecy, because the Afghan security situation--after 12 years of military occupation by Washington--is still so precarious that no top official from the USA empire could afford to arrive in broad daylight unmolested by the Afghan Resistance. Evidently, Obama's modern-day Imperial dictum seems to be, "I came, I saw, and I (had to) Split!"
Even more revealing of the true neoColonialist nature of the Empire's AfPak project is the fact that the Colonial Master Obama didn't have either the courtesy--or the "audacity"--to speak directly with any Afghan citizen! What kind of an "ally" is the Washington regime when its head of state would simply barge into a foreign capital and fail to meet with either the local government or even its citizens? Yet the Yankee chief of drone assassins unabashedly announced that the Empire intends to keep nearly 10,000 troops in Afghanistan after 2014, BEFORE he even had acquired the formal consent from the Afghan side(don't the locals have any say in the matter?)!
But back at home, the corporate-bin-Laden media sycophantically re-gurgitated the official Washington line with no critical review. So once more, the American Public is fed the typical Imperial spin/lie that America's benevolent foreign assistance in the AfPak theater is turning a new page, to one of military "advisors" and "trainers" in order to transition to a budding Afghan "democracy." Does anyone hear echoes of "Vietnamization"??
