CAITLIN JOHNSTONE on “The ‘Republicratic’ Afghanistan Puppet Show”

Republicans and Democrats are all talking about the Afghanistan withdrawal completely differently than they would be if it had happened in exactly the same way under Trump. The extent to which you are able to recognize this is the extent to which you are unplugged from the partisan puppet show. Imperial narrative managers like to spin war as this super complicated, esoteric thing that nobody but the most elite scholars can understand, and many unfortunately buy into it. Really it’s the easiest thing in the world to understand: mass murder for power and profit is wrong. The answer is the US government needs to stay the fuck out of all other nations. Doesn’t matter what the question is.” – Caitlin Johnstone
