Donald Trump Triples The Number Of Bombs Dropped In Afghanistan



Trump entered the White House saying “We have wasted an enormous amount of blood and treasure in Afghanistan,” and “Let’s get out!” questioning why the US was still fighting in Afghanistan. Now he’s ramping up America’s longest war.

The US army has unleashed 3,554 bombs as of October 31, 1,337 bombs in all of 2016, and 947 in all of 2015.

According to new figures, the US Air Force had dropped 3,554 bombs on Afghanistan in 2017, this is almost three times the 1,337 it dropped in 2016 and almost four times the 947 in 2015.

The US military opened a new front in its air war in Afghanistan, dropping thousands of more bombs, while Donald Trump had roundly criticized this war before taking office.

The experts warned of the risk of alienating the local population in Afghanistan. The increase in the number of bombs is the new strategy that Trump announced in August to see the presence of US soldiers expanded.

Trump entered the White House saying “We have wasted an enormous amount of blood and treasure in Afghanistan,” and “Let’s get out!” questioning why the US was still fighting in Afghanistan. Now he’s ramping up America’s longest war.

Trump wrote on Twitter on September 11, 2012: “84% of US troops wounded & 70% of our brave men & women killed in Afghanistan have all come under Obama. Time to get out of there.”

Earlier in September, 3,000 additional American troops were deployed to the war zone, bringing the total number of US troops there to at least 14,000.

Under Trump’s presidency, the US military has killed more Afghan civilians in the campaign against the ISIS than under his predecessor Barack Obama. Trump is only involving the US further in a conflict with no end in sight.

Previously, Trump opposed withdrawal, and despite the increase in bombing, the Taliban’s presence in Afghanistan has not waned and according to some experts, has continued to grow.

Recently this week, The International Criminal Court prosecutor asked for authorization to investigate reported human rights abuses in Afghanistan, including allegations of rape and torture by US military and the CIA, crimes against humanity by the Taliban and war crimes by Afghan security forces.

In spite of the increased bombing the Taliban’s presence in Afghanistan hasn’t diminished in terms of land occopied.

U.S. Army General John Nicholson, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, said recently that the number of Afghan districts controlled by the Taliban was “roughly the same as last year.”

However, Bill Roggio, a senior fellow with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, disputes that claim. He maintains that the Taliban now “controls or contests about 40 percent of Afghanistan — more than twice the area it had in 2015.”

The Afghan Taliban have also warned that Trump was “wasting” American lives with his new war strategy.


“If America doesn’t withdraw its troops from Afghanistan, soon Afghanistan will become another graveyard for this superpower in the 21st century,” Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid told Al Jazeera in August.

In other words Trump’s new strategy in Afghanistan could be doomed to failure. Like a replay of Vietnam or Iraq, where America’s reliance on overwhelming air superiority was not enough to secure victory on the ground, the U.S. doesn’t seem to have learned from these episodes.

Like they say, those who won’t learn from the lessons of the past are destined to repeat them.

  1. It worked just great in Vietnam didn’t it, Mr. President ?

    Germany almost defeated Britain by the attrition of British pilots and attacking strictly military targets, until Churchill baited Hitler by bombing civilians in Berlin.

    The war crimes of Dresden and other horrific acts by air warfare eventually ended the war in Europe by the most animal like method (The mark of great generals is how much they achieve by skill, not force alone). Bombing mud compounds endlessly with resulting huge numbers of ‘collateral’ civilian casualties will certainly succeed in uniting the country and the rest of the world against America, despite who owns the media. The Afghans took a million casualties to defeat the Soviet Union. Too bad America has 20th century generals in the 21st century.

    I’d suggest talking with India and Iran, and finding different routes for pipelines. Opium you can grow in many places.

    1. Pipelines and opium seem indeed to be the real motives of this protracted war. When Trump was still a candidate for the presidency he may not have been aware of that fact. Now things have been “explained” to him and he acts accordingly. Make the Deep State Great Again !

      1. They’ve probably spent more money on the war (it must be well into the trillions by now) than they’ll ever get back from “pipelines and opium.”

        I think it’s just a case of “they do what they do because they’re evil”. They calculate, but their demon-possession guarantees their ultimate failure.

        1. Uncle Sam will NEVER leave Afghanistan, that’s because Afghanistan borders IRAN — Uncle Sam is drooling to start a war against IRAN and it’s always smart to have a military presence in a country right next to the country you got your sights on. Plus, Afghanistan borders Pakistan and Pakistan has Nukes. Just in case Pakistan decides some day to side with IRAN and no longer side with ZOG, ((( Uncle Sam))) is right there on Pakistan’s border to put Pakistan back in-line, just in case the Pakistanis ever decide to side with IRAN.

          Alot of people say the U.S. military is in Afghanistan to protect the opium/herion trade, and that’s true, but that’s not the MAJOR reason the U.S. military is in Afghanistan, that’s a side benefit to being in Afghanistan
          [ looking at it from a Deep State perspective ] . The MAJOR reason Uncle Sam is in Afghanistan and will never leave Afghanistan is because the country borders both Pakistan and IRAN, especially IRAN.

          It would be less expensive to pay each and every Afghani a million dollars each contingent on them immigrating to Europe, Australia, Canada, the United States, then Uncle Sam could have Afghanistan and turn it the place into a MEGA United States military base from which to launch THE WAR against IRAN the jews and jew Uncle Sam is so drooling for. It’s a good thing the U.S. is getting bogged down in Afghanistan, that makes ZOG weaker, it drains the U.S. military. That the U.S. is now bogged down in Afghanistan makes it less likely ZOG will start a war against Iran. The Afghanis are doing the world a favor by giving ZOG’s military such a difficult time. They’re certainly doing Iran a favor. Good for them.

          Its horrible that so much death and destruction is being inflicted on the Afghani people, just because the crypto jew, the wahabbi Osama Bin Laden, Osama Bin Laden in business with the Bush family and Dick Cheney and ZOG and THE CABAL in Washington who assassinated JFK, decided to call Afghanistan “home” for a little while. How convenient for ZOG that the wahabbi crypto jew Bin Laden whose wahabbi family is business partners with the Bush family decided to make Afghanistan his “home” at the same time 9/11 happened.

      2. Pipelines. Oh yes. Russia preventing one in the M.E. while defendíng its Russia-Europe gas line. Oh well, all for moral reasons Mother Russia. Sigh…..Putin abonded his wife of many years for a woman half his age. …..what a great guy….asshole….

    2. Germany could have walked into Britain – I know from first hand witnesses there was one old duffer or a raw recruit every 2 miles on the south coast.

      The bombing of cities more likely started out of archetypal buffoonery, characteristic of Churchill.

      1. We can call it Winston’s ‘arrested development’ when the money flow relies more on unproductive industries [arms, drugs and casinos] than on the productive ones [education, agriculture, transport, etc.], and not to mention the insane hidden “industries” of murdering the population.

  2. President Trump would not have been elected if not for the overwhelming support of the anti-war Right and the military itself. As one who still believes, “better than Hillary,” I am personally heartbroken. If he is impeached (and I hope he is not), will Christian Zionist Pence become a Peace President? Don’t make me laugh. If anything, he’ll be even closer to Israel – if that is possible.

    We desperately need a Third Party, but, with Jews in total control of the media, what are the chances of that happening? And are there any “good guys” in either of our dinosaur parties waiting in the wings to save the Republic? To ask the question is to answer it. Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich were the last two Presidential candidates with principles, and their campaigns went nowhere.

    If not Trump, there is no one on the horizon with the gonads to take on this hopelessly corrupt, rotten system. After Trump, why should anyone who is anti-war even waste their time by voting? The United States has committed suicide. Trump was our last chance.

    1. Ron Paul’s 2012 campaign might have gone somewhere, but was stymied by the GOP changing rules, refusing to count his delegates, and more. The powers that shouldn’t be will never let a candidate who doesn’t meet their approval reach the point of nomination. Same goes for a third party. The two party US system will never let a 3rd party get more than a fraction of the vote. (((They))) haven’t yet reached the point where all dissent is crushed, and some outlet for pent-up frustration is probably a good thing from (((their))) viewpoint, so third parties are allowed to make a showing of the US, and UK, being genuine “dumb-mock-crazies”.

      “It’s not the people who vote that count, it’s the people who count the votes” – Attr. to Stalin, but he was only re-stating a widely known fact.

      1. Carn,

        On top of that, Rand Paul threw his support to Romney BEFORE his father dropped out of the race. A naked political act on his part, that many of us on the anti-war Right have not forgotten. 2012 was a perfect time to go third party, but Ron blinked when he had the chance, no doubt because he wanted Rand to remain a viable GOP presidential candidate in the future. But, the anti-war Right remembered Rand’s betrayal and threw their support to Trump in 2016. Now we must live (or maybe DIE) with Trump’s betrayal.

  3. It is hard to reconcile the citing of the increasing “opioid epidemic” with the increased fury of bombing in Afghanistan. Someone is lying about some big part of it.

    1. The Veterans Administration was required to adopt CDC guidelines for opioid usage (none) to get funding. Those CDC guidelines were developed, apparently, with the help of a small group of doctors who – surprise surprise – run addiction treatment centers. The VA is required to wean veterans off opioids, and substitute “psychiatric and psychological counseling (addiction treatment centers – prescribing SSRI drugs), Tylenol, and yoga / physical therapy”. I’d say more, but it’s way off topic.

      Yes, it does seem “hard to reconcile the citing of the increasing “opioid epidemic” with the increased fury of bombing in Afghanistan” particularly in light of what the VA is doing.

      1. Carnaptious, we also remember Vietnam and how the Army simply released/discharged all those heroin addicts back into the general population.
        Many big city draftees with their 10% – 15% heroin funtime met the real thing (90%) with real predictable results.
        And the Army cut them loose. No treatment, no nothing. I sure do remember..

    2. Well if they were able to bomb the hell out of Syria without doing much damage to ISIS, I suppose they can bomb the hell out of Afghanistan without doing much damage to the crops.

    3. Gilbert,
      Most of the opioids made by big Pharma are synthetic. They don’t need Afghan opium. About 15 years ago I had an operation which required the fusion of two of my cervical vertebra. When I came out of the OR I was given an injection of 10 mg of morphine. Thereafter I was given useless Fentanyl for 5 days, which was expensive when compared to morphine which cost 1 baht $1=32 baht per 10 mg. It’s all a scam by big Pharma in cahoots with the CIA, DEA and politicians. You have the illegal drug industry which needs the drug suppression industry. The mules who get caught are exactly that, sacrifices to assuage the so called public. As they used to say in the old days.
      Corruption is like a bus and there are 3 ways to deal with it!
      One, you can run alongside. Which means you don’t go on the take, neither do you do anything about it.
      Two, you can get on the bus. Which means going on the take, getting rich and a fast track to promotion etc.
      Three, you can stand in front of the bus and get run over.

  4. Orange Clown wants to intervene and escalate conflict everywhere in the world…except here in the U.S., where we desperately need some serious conflict with communist gun grabbers, communist perpetrators of 9/11, communist warmongers, etc.

    But no; instead Orange Clown unjustifiably uses his presidential “bully pulpit” to criticize, insult and threaten foreign rulers; e.g., Assad, Maduro and Kim Jong-un.

    None of these rulers pose any threat to anything. They’ve done NOTHING to America. Kim Jong-un didn’t do 9/11. Assad doesn’t control the U.S. media and use it to tell lies. Maduro isn’t trying to disarm Americans.

    Orange Clown’s willing to risk starting a potentially world-ending nuclear war over the non-existent threat posed by imaginary “enemies”, but when the domestic enemies to the constitution take the most brazen act of treasonous aggression against the constitution that I think I’ve ever seen in my life time, he sits there mute.

    Just a few days ago for example, the U.S. supreme court basically gutted the second amendment:

    This will most likely now have the effect of opening the floodgates for a torrent of embarrassingly unconstitutional jew-inspired gun control legislation at the state level. Ultimately the average American will have no more right to own a gun than the average peasant in any other corrupt third-world banana republic.

    Where’s the U.S. attorney’s amicus brief demanding that the court hear the case? Where’s Orange Clown’s proposed legislation to protect what remains of the second amendment? Why isn’t Orange Clown availing himself of the “bully pulpit” and flapping his ugly jowels to admonish the supreme court for its treason? How about just a little tweet? Not even a tiny little verbal slap on the wrist? Is that asking too much?

    Our 4D chess player’s ready to risk ending all life on earth if Bashar al-Assad rubs hims the wrong way, but when incontrovertible evidence emerges that 9/11 was an inside job, or when the supreme court brazenly trashes the rights that our ancestors died for, he sits there totally inert – like the piece of traitorous dog sh*t that he is.

    1. Thanks for that link, Harold. The SC’s non-decision may have far reaching consequences. Gun grabbers will be emboldened… confiscation of semi-auto firearms now seems feasible. That would put a lot of people, almost all gun owners I would think, except black powder only enthusiasts, in a “use it or lose it” situation. The alternative would be to bury semi-auto firearms, which seems to accomplish the gun grabbers goals for them. Once the firearms are gone, it won’t be long before the round-ups begin.

      It’s truly bizarre to see the SC’s “military firearms” exemption to the 2nd A. No military uses semi-auto only firearms, and an activist court – half or more of which is composed of usual suspects – finds language in the 2nd A that exists only in their imaginations. Grrrr.

      1. I wouldn’t call it a “non-decision”. I would call the deliberate refusal to hear the case a very calculated act of treason. They knew exactly what the likely consequences will be and that’s what they want.

        The fourth circuit’s decision (which now stands), directly contradicts and now overturns an earlier ruling which IIRC held that the 2nd amendment protects only “military style” weapons.

        Our masters are now openly and shamelessly trashing everything and daring us to stop them. Thank goodness for our 4D chess player who heroically sits there watching the slow-motion train wreck from the sidelines.

      2. Our Satanic masters are squandering everything of value in their hopeless pursuit of complete world domination and control. They’re trashing our economy and making our dollars worthless; they’re making the rest of the world hate us; they’re taking away all of our “rights”; and before it’s over (if they’re not stopped and soon), it’ll very likely cost many or most of us our lives, during the final phase of the physical destruction of “America”.

      3. I think what we need now more than ever, is for at least one of the states in the union to secede (or try to secede). By this point in time a state wishing to do so could come up with a breathtaking list of grievances:

        (1) We don’t want your unconstitutional wars and interventions.
        (2) We don’t want your CIA subversion, FBI harassment, NSA spying, TSA groping, color revolutions, coups, false flag attacks; etc.
        (3) We have no quarrel with the rest of the world and we want no unnecessary enmity with other countries.
        (4) We don’t want a nuclear war with Russia, China or anyone else.
        (5) We don’t want our assets looted, our economy trashed and our money made worthless in support of your expensive imperial adventures, “foreign aid”, etc.
        (6) We don’t want your unconstitutional laws, e.g., gun laws.
        (7) We don’t want your rigged elections.
        (8) Etc.

  5. @Harold Smith,

    You may have seen Gilad Atzmon’s article, at Truthseeker yesterday, in which Atzmon points out that Jews in the Diaspora are getting tired of Jews in Israel making them look bad. 🙂 I have a lot of respect for Atzmon because he has renounced his connections to Israel and Jewishness, but I’m not sure I agree with the title of this article “Diaspora Jews have had enough of Israel and Zio-Barbarism”.

    I surmise that many of those Jews in the Diaspora who object to Israel making them look bad do so not because they object to what Israel is doing, but only to the fact that it reflects poorly on Jews in the Diaspora. That is, they are quite OK with the IDF brutalizing Palestinians as long as they cannot be connected to the crimes. Nut N’ Yahoo makes that difficult when he claims to speak for all Jews. Good article, and only a couple of minutes worth of reading.

    “it’ll very likely cost many or most of us our lives, during the final phase of the physical destruction of “America”.” Yep, and I don’t expect to be one of the survivors, but that’s OK with me since I have no kids. I will gladly give up my life if necessary to secure the existence of European people, and a future for their children.

    I live in a part of one of the states that make up the “Northwest or American Redoubt”. This area may yet secede, and I’d vote for it, and every one of the grievances.

  6. On the other hand this is how it works when the American military apparatus bombs places like Afghanistan: Trump (or Obama or Bush ) AUTHORIZES the air force etc. to PREVENT terror against America by any means necessary and when the army asks the commander in chief “what if there are civilians killed by mistake, dear leader?” “Well” he goes “you know what to do”
    So, after bombing a whole village because they shot in the air which is custom when there is a wedding and after killing two or three hundred people (bride and groom included) they come on tv and say some shit like ….
    like the general who was (thank God !!)later shot and killed by Juba the Baghdad sniper said..
    The Jews are even worse because they only smile at the camera after bombing the same school TWICE WHILE UTTERING SHIT LIKE
    “THE STATE OF ISRAEL IS A LIGHT UNTO THE WORLD, OUR CONDOLENCES GO TO THE FAMILIES OF THE JEWISH FAMILIES OF THOSE WHO DIED IN A HORRIBLE SUICIDE ATTACK THREE MONTHS AGO” but when you go and check what really happened AT THE KIBBUTZIM where a explosion occured three months ago, YOU FIND OUT THAT some 74 YEARS OLD lady from Russia had left the gas in her kitchen on while cooking some knishes and BOOM the whole fucking trailer home exploded.
    And so on
    when will all this stop?
    when Nuclear Bombs can be manufactured in a microwave oven or when some other mean of LITERALLY LIFTING A WHOLE NEIGHBOURHOOD IN BLUE AND PINK FLAMES is discovered, But i guess that when they figure out that this IS possible they will say (yes some MORE shit) like … “Muslims are good people, OH GOD they are so good” then they will make a movie or two where they will depict muslims as good people (and make some more money in the process) just like they did after they were done with the blacks, the natives and the vietnamese …
    and this is planet earth for ya

  7. Trump is a Zionist Trojan horse and a Zionist controlled puppet who is protecting the heroin production in Afghanistan for the CIA and the MOSSAD and MI6. The heroin production has increased ever since the Zionist controlled U.S. got involved in Afghanistan.

    Please read the book THE POLITICS OF HEROIN IN SOUTHEAST ASIA by Alfred McMcoy, it can be had on

  8. “The experts warned of the risk of alienating the local population in Afghanistan.”

    No “YUGE” problem there. Just destroy them.. “BIGGLY” with bombs.. so they cannot complain about any stinkin’ alienation…

    MORE BOMBS.. and MORE $$$ for replacements by US bomb companies..!!!

    Trump follows orders… and Stocks go UP..!! 🙂

  9. TJ, also lives “in a part of one of the states that make up the “Northwest or American Redoubt”. I would to meet you sometime, Carnaptious.
    TJ was listening to an interview on the ministry of the American government propaganda, Public Radio. Some “expert” was being interviewed about the opioid epidemic in America and elsewhere. All this “expect” would talk about is all the heroin grown south of the border and coming through Mexico. Not one single word that at least 95 percent of all the world’s heroin comes from the poppy fields of Afghanistan.
    Of course it’s all about basic economics. Where there is demand for, in this case heroin, and all the big pharma opioid clones, then the supply will be ginned up. The jolly Taliban would like to eradicate the poppy fields. Whereas the big banks, that depend on the untold billions of illegal and legal drug money that keeps them propped up, along with the illegal world wide American arms sales, has deemed that the American imperial
    storm troupers under the command of banking stooge President Trump and his generals must not only maintain the present, but must increase the production of heroin in Afghanistan, the grave yard empires.
    When Alfred McCoy wrote his book THE POLITICS OF HEROIN IN SOUTHEAST ASIA much of the worlds heroin was coming out of SE Asia, much of it shipped into the U.S. in the body bags of American service men. Former MKUltra mind controlled Cisco Wheeler’s Uncle, general Wheeler, was the ramrod of much of the Vietnam heroin importation. That was then, this is now.
    Although there may be other less important reasons for American shook and awe bombing of Afghanistan, poppy production is at the top. TJ has said this before and will say it again. The Government of the United States is one vast criminal enterprise. And TJ can’t wait for the reaction of the American snowflake when Russian, Chinese, etc. make their move to slice and dice America. And we all know who will be standing on the borders and shores of America with open arms just like they did upon the Islamic invasion of Iberia so many years ago.

  10. For the Jewish paradise to go ahead, the world outside Greater Israel must become a prison and eventually Hell. This will be done using a frogs in boiling water approach. Jews will distance themselves in every way from the goyim so that they as God live in Heaven, after having first raped the planet and monopolized its resources.

    The humans who persecuted them so much (sinned so badly against God) will be mixed with Blacks and poisoned in all manner of ways, living eternally in Hell, which will be all the world except the Jewish paradise of (Greater) Israel. Then it will make more sense when Jews say to the Lord, “Thank you for making me a Jew!”

    It goes without saying that Whites have no place in the world to come. They must be eradicated. They want people who can’t ever resist, who are permanently, eternally enslaved. These concepts are very exciting to Jews.

    Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 348: “All property of other nations belongs to the Jewish nation, which, consequently, is entitled to seize upon it without any scruples.”

    “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel.”

    Jews see themselves collectively as God. Judaism spells out how they are to make this world and also features ready-made laws for once that world to come is finally achieved.

    Holohoax museums all over the world will poignantly remind the goyim of the worst atrocity in the history of the world.

  11. Dropping bombs on people is insane. The entire military industrial complex is Jewish to the core.

  12. From the article:


  13. As Gilbert Huntly said, someone is lying about the bombing.

    Here is the other side of the story.

    “Trump’s opium war: US begins bombing Taliban drug labs as new Afghanistan strategy takes hold” – 11/22/17

    “The strikes marked the “first significant use” of legal authorities granted August 21 by the Trump administration that will allow the Pentagon to target Taliban revenue streams, said Army General John Nicholson Jnr, the top US commander in Afghanistan. Previously, the US military carried out strikes only when facing imminent threat or working directly with Afghan forces.”

    “Nicholson said that the strikes were not carried out until now, nearly three months after Trump approved his new strategy, because it took extensive preparation and observation by surveillance aircraft to assess the targeted sites.”

    For sure, the (((establishment))) does not want the opium flow out of Afghanistan to be impeded. Assuming that opium labs are being targeted, it’s another reason why the (((establishment))) has increased attacks on Trump during the past three months.

    Who’s lying about the bombing? Time will tell for sure.

    1. Ungenius, I think that destroying Taliban’s opium laboratories, while leaving the poppy farms intact, enables the CIA to take over and bring more poison to the US, in the same way that abolishing the estate tax enables the corporations to take over the US agriculture by becoming impossible to compete with. It’s all about the global monopoly over resources, and global depopulation.
