I hear lots of conspiracy theories, and I don't know if they're true, but I expect some of them are true, and its important to look at things statistically and find which set of theories fits together consistently.

If this one is true, then the most important question we should ask is... Who benefits the most from funding both sides of a war? Maybe the banks, weapons businesses, or anyone who wants government to have an excuse to reduce freedom and increase government control.

One Map With All the Countries the US Has Invaded Will Make You Question Everything





Using data compiled by a Geography and Native Studies professor from Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, the indy100 team created an interactive map of U.S. military incursions outside its own borders from Argentina in 1890 to Syria in 2014.

To avoid confusion, indy100 laid out its prerequisites for what constitutes an invasion:

"Deployment of the military to evacuate American citizens, covert military actions by US intelligence, providing military support to an internal opposition group, providing military support in one side of a conflict, use of the army in drug enforcement actions."


But indy100 didn't stop there. To put all that history into context, using data from the Department of Defense (DOD), the team also put together a map to display all the countries in which nearly 200,000 active members of the U.S. military are now stationed.

There is one major reason for Trump changing his stance on war. The reason is this.

Most of the countries that the U.S. has invaded over the years, have been complete business organizations, while not allowing their individual citizens the opportunity to be big business.

America is different, along with Canada, the U.K., and Australia. These countries, while allowing and using big Government business, also allow individual big business among the people. In fact, it is the other way around with these countries. It is the people who allow Government the ability to do big business.

Some evidence for the above ^^^ lies below.

Donald Trump Eyes Afghanistan's $1 Trillion Mineral Reserves to Pay for...






US President Donald Trump is eyeing Afghanistan's mineral wealth to help pay for a 16-year war and reconstruction efforts that have already cost $117 billion. Investors who have studied the country, one of the world's most dangerous, say that is a pipe dream.

Ever since a United States Geological Survey study a decade ago identified deposits later estimated to have a potential value of as much as $1 trillion, both Afghan and foreign officials have trumpeted the reserves as a likely key to economic independence for Afghanistan.

As well as deposits of gold, silver and platinum, Afghanistan has significant quantities of iron ore, uranium, zinc, tantalum, bauxite, coal, natural gas and significant copper – a particular draw given the dearth of rich new copper mines globally.

Afghanistan, some reports say, even has the potential to become "the Saudi Arabia of lithium", thanks to deposits of the raw material used in phone and electric car batteries.

But a lack of basic logistics – paved roads and rail links needed to export copper concentrate or iron ore – pervasive corruption, a messy bureaucracy and a growing insurgency that has left much of the country beyond the writ of the Kabul government have stifled attempts to a build a legitimate mining sector.

Much of the basic data dates back to the Soviet occupation in the 1980s. And the cost of having foreign geologists and engineers visit remote sites to carry out new surveys is prohibitive when nothing is yet being produced to pay for it.

"There is no low-hanging fruit that could trigger rapid growth and foster self-sustaining development," said the government's own National Peace and Development Framework document, presented at last year's donor conference in Brussels.

Major projects such as the Mes Aynak copper mine, being developed by a Chinese consortium, remain at a standstill.
