Afghan War A ‘Total Failure’ – Should We ‘Privatize’ It?

We are approaching the 17 year anniversary of the US war on Afghanistan. It is a slow-motion disaster, with our “enemy” the Taliban gaining more ground each year. Spending four trillion dollars and wasting thousands of lives in a war we are losing has led many, including Blackwater founder Erik Prince, to declare the Afghan war a “total loss.” Prince has a plan that he claims would “win” the war by using far fewer US troops and spending far less money. But what is “winning”? What is the policy? Why are the Taliban our enemies in the first place? Tune in to today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

  1. I suppose we grant him letters of marque? This will give Blackwater the right to plunder Afghanistan all US government troops and US government spending would stop.

    Somehow I expect he wants the USG to pony up $$$. Can I underbid him? I can lose this war for less money than you can!

  2. Pay attention to this. Once the wars are privatized private corporations and the share holder economy completely takes power. It’s a short path back to slavery from there.
