The United States has been fighting a tedious war against terrorism in Afghanistan for over 17 years. The troops of America, its funds, and its humanitarian works in Afghanistan are failing due to the rampant corruption here. According to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), a watchdog of the US in Afghanistan, till date billions of US dollars have been abused and wasted.
Businessmen of the Middle East and neighbouring countries set up their firms in Afghanistan, knowing illegal trades can flourish there easily due to corruption and lenient legal system. One businessman, Tony Abi Saab of Lebanon set up his construction firms here to swindle the US money. His companies Bennet-Fouch and K5 Global were fake, which embezzled 5 million dollars of federal government. He used the fake alias “Sarah Lee” to procure important military contracts.
Tony Abi Saab is mainly an illegal arms dealer who sells weapons to terrorist organizations through his company Brescia Middle East. Terrorists are using guns and weapons to kill civilians of Syria, Iran, and Afghanistan. He makes possible the movement of the guns and weapons through the border securities.His shell companies are also involved in the illicit arms trade namely Umarex gmbh & co KG - Germany, Noble france sa- France, Osmanli Arms, Istanbul and Konya, ATA Av Tufekleri,KOMANDO AV SAN TIC Ltd., - Turkey, Emran arms -Bangladesh, Kula Ltd., Tiblisi - Georgia, LOBASTAV IVAN, Baikal Ltd., Izhevsk City- Russia, Condor - Brasil, Arsenal- Bulgaria, MSN Group & CSG Group - CZ, Berkut Ltd - Ukraine, Armeria brignoli silvio & c snc, BLS, Fiocchi munizone, Benelli Armi, franchi division, Brixia Shotguns SRL, Armeria Amelio Gamba SRL, Beretta, Tanfoglio- Italy. Despite inhuman activities in Syria, Iran, Yemen, and Afghanistan by the terrorists, there are some businessmen like Tony who are helping them and arming them with hi-tech weapons just for the fake of profits.
Tony Abi Saab is not a normal businessman; he is an avarice and greedy person. He influences people to take wrongpath for their own profits. He was brought to the US court in 2011 to stand a trial against him. His company Brescia Middle East was indicted for money laundering, running ghost companies such as K5 Global, Bennet-Fouch, G2 Armory, Brixia, Tactica-Ltd, and SIMAINT. BME was charged for money laundering, fraud, supplying weapons to the terrorist organization for the profit and running several ghost companies in the Middle East and Europe.
People like Tony are the main reason why military is failing in war-torn countries.
