On Conflicts of Interest #72, Kyle Anzalone discusses the recent attack on US troops in norther Iraq. The attack left one contractor dead and an American soldier injured. Hawks are claiming Iran was behind the attack and the US must respond. The link between Iran and the group that carried out the rocket attack is unclear. However, the ongoing occupation of Iraq is a provocation to some Shi’ite militias. With or without Iranian support, American troops remaining in Iraq makes them targets of militant groups.

The Afghan Study Group released a report calling for the US to extend its two-decade war past the May withdraw date agreed to in the US-Taliban Agreement. The Group’s report claims that leaving Afghanistan creates a risk for a civil war. Afghanistan has been in a state of war for several decades. The Group’s conclusion that the US war must go on may reflect the deep monetary connect to weapons makers. Of the groups three co-chairs and 12 members, military- industrial complex companies paid nine employees $4 million.
