The aid ought to have been offered before blowing the country apart in an illegal, belligerent war!
The USA alone spent more than $540 billion on this war. Of course the weapons manufacturers are impressed with their gross winnings. (Yes pun intended)
And now we're talking of $16 billion with 16 countries contributing as big money! A tiny, tiny amount when compared with the money spent on war and killing of thousands. Of course there's corruption in Afghanistan. First the USA helped get the Soviets to invade in about 1979 ( Carter and the notorious Zbigniew Brzezinski), then the creation of al Qaeda by (Carter and the notorious Zbigniew Brzezinski) to make sure the war was an extended one. Zbigniew Brzezinski has been quoted as saying he wanted to create Russia's own Vietnam----- no thought given to Afghanistan or the Afghans.
Osama bin Laden was tricked into thinking that his al Qaeda was to roust the Soviets and I can imagine his change of heart when he was so abused by the plotting of the USA.
Then, the USA invades, with its stupid NATO buddies, in 2001 to hunt down Osama bin Laden who the Afghans rightly said was not in Afghanistan. He had been, of course, but apparently for not a long time. End of war? Of course not, because they do not give a damn about Afghans.
Osama bin Laden was accused of 9/11. But, the true videos say he was not. But the USA always wants a scapegoat rather than the truth.
How many Afghans have been killed because of USA insanity? Many, many thousands and all because of the 2001 9/11 that has many, many stories full of holes.
Here's one very interesting read:
