“Good Riddance to the War on Terror” – Lowkey on DDN

26 August 2021


London based rapper Lowkey weighs in on the ‘war on terror’ which seems to have come to a symbolic ending with the US military’s chaotic departure from Afghanistan.

This video from Double Down News is a wide ranging tour de force, which looks at the conflict from different angles, including the idea that the so called ‘war on terror’ could be seen as a vehicle for transferring wealth from everyday taxpayers to the already obscenely rich.

The Afghan War has cost not only almost quarter of a million lives but it cost the US government $2.26 trillion.

The US spent trillions and where did it go?

Into the bank accounts of some of the most wealthiest people in the world.
