Trump wants to privatize the war in Afghanistan because, you know, we're out of money.

This is ludicrous.

Check it out.

Trump Considering Plan to Privatize Much of War in Afghanistan

And this is for what reason? So he can give tax cuts to the wealthy?

The United States has become a buffoon nation with a buffoon for president. This would be laughable if it wasn't so pathetic.

We export war. That's all we do. It's sickening. War for profit now. A new industry is born with the blessings of the White House.

The U.S.A. is a for-profit,  mercenary nation. We are a laughing stock with nukes. Zero moral authority. ZERO.

Trump is getting more pathetic every day. I am ashamed that I voted for this asshole.

Mike he wants ALL of these USDs back:

Over $6T...

Hard to see how he is going to do it... maybe around wars like this... Get Japan and SK to buy missile defense, etc... he just did a $100B + deal with Saudis they have 134B puts a pretty good dent in it...

If he gets really good terms of trade for it then else equal will work as BULLISH USD infuence imo... Trump is a real wild card...

And the way to get those USD back is to inveigle or force others to buy US weapons. :o

Then you need some wars to use them up and order new ones. Or create an arms race so that everyone has to continually upgrade.

Trump isn't driving the bus. The Deep State / MIC is firmly in control and completely without any checks and balances.
