Daniel Ellsberg: “No Victory in Afghanistan. Just take the Pentagon Papers and use the word Afghanistan instead of Vietnam, and you have the same thing.” Ellsberg points out that it will take about 600,000 to 700,000 troop increase (Afghan Military and U.S. and NATO troops) to have an effective counterinsurgency in Afghanistan. Ellsberg says that the only reason that we are stil there is the Pipeline from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan and Pakistan. [See our Pipelinestan stories here.] Ellsberg believes that President Obama will cave in to the McCrystal request of 40,000 troops because he will not want the Military to revolt against him. He picked these military leaders, gave them the task of coming up with a “plan”, and now that they did, Pres. Obama is stuck with adding more troops. This will only lead to more deaths on all sides.
[Ed. Note: Please pass this on to all your friends. It is a “MUST SEE”, and see if you can get it up the chain of command to your military friends and government official friends. Send a copy to your members of Congress and U.S. Senators. Demand that they listen to Daniel Ellsberg, the man who is responsible for the Vietnam War ending with the release of the Pentagon Papers]
Final thought: There are people in the know that have information like the Pentagon Papers. Please step forward and End the War(s) NOW. Your country will be grateful.
