Dying for Crooks: US Troops in Afghanistan
Posted By James Bovard On November 18, 2009 @ 8:27 pm In News | Comments Disabled
Transparency International reported yesterday that Afghanistan is the most corrupt nation in the world – except for Somalia.
Heckua achievement, if the only nation on earth that is more shady is one that is full of piratesâ€¦ Karzai is making Marion Barry look like Mother Teresa.
The Washington Post reported today that one of Afghanistanâ€™s top ministers took a $30 million bribe to give a special deal to a Chinese mining company.
The New York Times reported: â€œEverything seems to be for sale: public offices, access to government services, even a personâ€™s freedom.â€
So what do Army recruiters say these days? Why in Hades would any American agree to risk his neck to prop up this band of thieves ?
