Eh, don't get so upset, it's only 900 million $!

Another Bailout Looms, But This Time It's For Kabul

Afghanistan is rated by Transparency International as the third most corrupt country in the world. But that does not seem to be affecting U.S. aid to Afghanistan, which continues to grow.

The white whale of graft is Kabul Bank, which needs a bailout that may top $900 million because of bad loans made to friends and relatives of high-ranking Afghan government officials.

Of course, with little revenue of its own, an Afghan government bank bailout really means a bailout by the international community, and more money from the United States.

Anyone voting for this should have his/her assets stripped to pay for it.

It is cool with me.
The PTB just have to keep in mind that if the dollar collapses, some people will see the politicians as the reason for said crash.
I'm sure said people would then look for vengeance, and borders would matter not.
We the people have entrusted them with our country, i hope they do not screw it up.

Brilliant stuff,
There are suitcases full of millions of dollars arriving in Dubai airport from Kabul Airport every week.
Wish I worked baggage on the tarmac in Dubai Airport....
