At least 500 Afghan tribal leaders, who were against the invasion of the country by US-led forces, have been suspiciously killed in Kandahar in the past eight years.
According to a list received by Press TV's correspondent in Afghanistan, more than 500 tribal leaders in the southern provinces of Afghanistan especially Kandahar have been killed in suspicious manners after the US invasion of the country in 2001.
The list cites the names of the killed Afghan figures, their tribes, their place of birth and the place they were killed.

That's not what I'm saying at all. I posed the question of whether the US really wants stability or not, which is a fair question to ask. I have said for years that the only good thing going for Afghanistan, is the elders. They also just happen to be an obstacle of continuing chaos and if US corporations are interested in making big bucks from the war in Afghanistan, they need chaos.
I then further postulated that this could also be due to the heroin trade. The tribal elders are famous for their opposition to poppy production.

I knew a LERP who had jobs assasinating leaders in Cambodia. We are using the same tactics we used in Vietnam. We create disorder by taking out the leaders. I didn't work in Vietnam and it ain't gonna work in Afghanistan.
