The Living Force
Lorraine said:Maybe that's one of the reasons American troops are in Afghanistan. They are preparing a safe house for the elite. Its inland, mountainous, safe for tunnels, rich in minerals (not sure about food though). Just a thought. ;)
Or it cold be;
1-Dispersion of majority of army all around the world to keep them busy on something not so important but easily exploited via marketing.
2-Dispersion of potentially dangerous military force, who could turn against the same elite in US in the time of real crisis.
