So, let me get this straight. The US, a nation which has supplied and trained every major terror organisation currently active on the planet, or made
their existence possible by way of its foreign policy, and sells weapons to cartels across its southern border, cartels who have killed US citizens
and law enforcement agents, not to mention dealing drugs all over the continent, is concerned that Afghanistan has too large of an arms surplus?
Sometimes, it appears as if the US government has no ability to remember its own actions, its own failures. With all their data collection
capabilities, well publicised and extensive as they are, it is a constant source of fascination to me that this can be the case. The powers
controlling the USA these days, spend vast amounts of money on things like surveys, opinion polls, fact finding, audits and all sorts of things which
measure the way the government is seen by its people. If it spent nearly as much time and money on remembering the hideous balls ups it has made,
perhaps the US government would realise that until the log of unholy proportions lodged in its occular cavity has been removed, it has no business
concerning itself with much that happens beyond its borders.
