the 40+ year U.S. Imperial project in Afghanistan(started by the Carter administration back in 1979, with Uncle Sam's backing of Usama binLaden--UBL--and his band of jihadists) is now collapsing like a house of cards, sending shock waves in Washington and on the Public airwaves, especially in the NeoLiberal "Corprorate-bin-Laden" media.

Nazi USA's military made 5 passes over the Doctors without Borders (MSF in French) hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan and bombed only the hospital, nothing else, despite the fact that huge flags on its roof identified it as a hospital. IT WAS A DELIBERATE ATTACK, and when it comes to the US military, IT IS ALWAYS A DELIBERATE ATTACK.
