The war in Afghanistan was planned long before 9/11, that war and Iraq too, wars were planned we haven’t even started yet and certainly will never live to finish.  War is a business and creating war, manufacturing reasons for war including staging acts of terrorism and promoting worldwide strife is seen by “insiders” as “business as usual.”

If you wonder why those who start wars never fight them, why their children never fight them and why everyone around them grows rich and fat from war, you haven’t been paying attention.  There is nothing to wonder about.

Today, an Afghan pilot killed 9 of his NATO allies.  This story is a breaking one as is the announcement of the musical chairs in Washington’s “land of deceit,” Panetta going to DOD and Petraeus to CIA.  These two stories and every other one, from the spurious collection of “cherry picked” and, as we now learn again, censored Wikileaks, to the endless reports, scares and conspiracies that pour into our heads the second we choose to expose ourselves to any type of media, these stories are worse than any narcotic.

Drinking poison would be safe, perhaps healthier too.

After 10 years in Afghanistan, nobody is really asking why we are there, we simply pick up the body bags and deliver the cash.  I am told we haul out tons of heroin in the process, but we can let that go for now.  The devastation of the drug trade that the corrupt press is told to blames on the Taliban, an idiotic assertion to anyone with common sense, is a minor issue.  This year, that “minor issue” will generate $80 billion dollars in revenue.  The Afghan heroin trade has its own air force and, most important of all, may be one of the largest banking and investment firms in the world, centered in Zurich, Dubai, Tel Aviv and New York.

Imagine that people are supposed to believe the Taliban do this?

This week, while Wikileaks is telling us that “terrorists” have hidden a nuclear weapon in Europe somewhere, set to go off at any time and has reconfirmed the usual rubbish, chickenfeed and carefully ‘seeded’ war mongering, congress has been discussion billions stolen by military contracting firms. (Intelligence reports indicate that the nuclear threat is greatest at airports managed by a company called ICTS.  Heathrow was mentioned.)

Don’t mistake the former soldiers working for these firms as at fault.  In fact, most of these firms were created specifically to bilk the government out of money, set up by political types, staffers, party officials and big contributors as conduits for fraud.

If you are wondering why you didn’t see this story in the papers or on television, you aren’t the only one.  It is a story, not only of theft but of cover-up as well.  How much is missing?  By 2005, the official figure was nearly $300 billion.  With the nation tearing itself apart over $75 million for Planned Parenthood, money primarily spent for cancer screening and prenatal care for the poor, well, you see where this is going.  America’s infant mortality rate is heading for “3rd world’ status while $300 billion, probably much more than that, sits in foreign banks, laundered through the offshore corporations that have been outsources to handle the spurious “War on Terror.”

The question isn’t just theft, it’s that nobody seems to care.  From the Press TV report:

The commission discovered that billions of dollars are missing, misspent, or defrauded by private contractors in Afghanistan, and questioned why companies caught cheating the US taxpayer have not been barred from doing business with the government, the Press TV correspondent in Washington reported on Monday.

So you say, “This very important story was reported and told very well.”  Yes, you are right.  However, are you aware that it was reported only in IranPress TV is Iran.  What else is Iran telling the truth about?  Perhaps, is that why they are being called an “enemy?”  Oh, they have a nuclear program that is a threat against Israel, you say?  Really?  Now where did you read that?  See where this is going?


Some people called Korea “The Forgotten War.”  If ever the was ever a war the American people have forgotten, it is Afghanistan.  Many reasons were given for attacking Afghanistan.  Our current Wikileak is still selling the fiction of Al Qaeda and bin Laden, inventions of the collective psyches of Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and the gang at Project for a New American Century.

Others talk about Karzai and his connection to oil companies and gas pipelines and still more tire more every day of seeing photographs of American Marines walking through poppy fields, supposedly funding Taliban terrorism. Do note how carefully the Marines step, under threat of punishment if they damage leaf or stem.  But even opium wasn’t a reason but rather a side benefit.


Why did we attack Afghanistan?

The answer is simple.

Afghanistan is the worst place on earth to fight a war with the best trained and best armed citizens in the world, a people who would die before surrendering to a foreign power.

Bush and his cabal of criminals walked in there, put “Karzai incorporated” into power, the “Mayor of Kabul” and, ever since, it has been a given.  America will lose, just as Russia and Britain before them.  Nobody has beaten Afghanistan.

America has no vital interest there, there was no other reason than to start a war that was accepted from day one to be permanent, a meatgrinder that would create a backdrop for fascism at home, an endless stream of caskets returning to Dover Air Force Base and a minor distraction to keep the military busy.

After all, the Pentagon needs somewhere to play, somewhere to give out medals, somewhere to hide crimes, somewhere to kidnap and torture the innocent, somewhere to live out the sick fantasies that seem to affect so many that love flags and love uniforms but hate the world so much.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
