Erik Prince Lays Out His Vision For Afghanistan

Published

on

Blackwater founder Erik Prince laid out a new competent vision for Afghanistan in a recent interview with Fox News star Tucker Carlson.

Prince decried the constant U.S. leadership changes over the course of the 15-year conflict, and stated that the Afghanistan campaign needs one solid leader to negotiate with the Afghans and build trust.

“We’re spending as a country $42 billion there this year,” Prince told Carlson. “There’s 8,000 troops. Three quarters of them never actually leave the base…We’ve been through seventeen commanders in fifteen years.”

Prince supports an idea similar to the British occupation of India, which was outsourced to private companies and cost relatively little.

Since the U.S. invasion in 2001, Afghanistan has been plagued by sectarian warfare and recurring Taliban resurgences, and Afghans live under the constant watch of militarized U.S. drones. ISIS has also apparently cropped up in the country, as evidenced by President Trump’s use of a MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) in the nation.

Prince has long been on the cutting edge of Middle Eastern affairs, stating to this reporter in a bombshell expose that the U.S. consulate in Benghazi under Hillary Clinton was buying back weapons from a covert scheme to arm the Syrian rebels. The Syrian rebellion, of course, birthed ISIS.
