Bring The Economy Home - 3

In a recent post, Bring The Economy Home - 2, we gave some estimates of the impact it would have on the U.S. economy if we did not have the nation building economy we call the war in Afghanistan, where "your money" becomes "their money".
Everyone knows of some of the corruption in Afghanistan, but it is the actual degree of the corruption that is breath taking:
Billions of dollars are being secreted out of Kabul to help well-connected Afghans buy luxury villas in Dubai. Amid concerns that the money could be the result of corruption, American politicians have temporarily cut off aid to the Afghan government.
(Der Spiegel). The main stream media of MOMCOM is unlikely to say a whole bunch about the Afghanistan war, except to parrot the pentagon talking points propaganda.

Bring the economy home stupid.
