Blackwater founder “4,000 troops will make no difference” in Afghanistan, as Taliban “is winning” war (Video)

Erik Prince: “At 10:00 tonight this will be Trump’s war.”

Erik Prince is a former U.S. Navy SEAL, best known for founding the government services and security company Blackwater USA, now known as Academi.

Speaking to Tucker Carlson before the US POTUS’ Afghanistan speech…Prince outlined that the President’s goal should be to “deny terror sanctuary and leave”, noting that the US has been in Afghanistan for 16 years and has spent over one trillion USD, now adopting the “Soviet Union’s battle plan.”

Prince, who was recently in Afghanistan describe the present day situation as “much less stable” than in 2002.

Finally Prince warns that “at 10:00 tonight this will be Trump’s war,” further telling Carlson that “after 16 years of war,” and because the Taliban do not leave the war zone…“the Taliban have survived.”

“They know exactly how the Americans plan, and target and move and communicate. And they are operating inside our decision loop…and that is why they are winning.”

Erik Prince makes a lot of sense in his assessment of Afghanistan, but we urge some caution when listening to the founder of the mercenary group Blackwater…he may be lobbying for a smaller US military footprint so as to secure more mercenary contracts for Blackwater.

The Taliban have not just survived – they have grown in numbers, strength and reputation (PR offices in Doba FFS) while the Americans have done exactly the reverse,

Blackwater, or Academi, is a gang of professional killers, who operate with a ‘license to kill’ from the CIA. I wouldn’t even read, least watch the killer-in-chief.

Even if it is for his own benefit, he is right about the outcome. Nice to have a so-called professional validate my post in the Trump sends 4000 troops to Afghanistan thread.

Prince states that a complete pull out would mean that Afghanistan would become a complete failed state .
So what about all the other places that USriel has been involved in ,Libya etc…..The invasion of Afghanistan was under a bogus reason to begin with .OBL was not involved with 9/11 ,that whole story was a sham .Oil /opium and resources was what it was all about.The rest is bull$hit .

Just FYI, Mr. Prince’s most recent corporate incarnation is dubbed Frontier Services Group. He has been working for China, clearing people away from the One Belt, One Road route in SE Asia, according to the last information I saw.

Trump Admin is secretive not only about the wars, but also stopped publishing the log of who visits the White House. Lots of secrecy is maintained, from that alone.

Embedded advisors without American uniforms in Afghan units? I’d say this suggestion by Prince is clearly a push to secure more contracts for his mercenaries. That a contractor of mercenaries advised the POTUS to adopt a policy which would incidentally offer the former more profits is representative of how US foreign policy is formulated, even if Prince is correct about the final outcome of the war.
