The Taliban Retake Afghanistan in 4 days after the US military pack up and leave.
By Dark Politricks
I guess the Taliban are now the worlds best equipped army with American weapons apart from the US, considering the American army just left Bagram Airbase full of stock, leaving everything behind as they left, forgetting to tell the Afghan army they had trained, that they were leaving.
Within hours looters within hours had stolen TVs, laptops and bicycles. When the Afghan Army finally got to the base they found a junk yard of rotting food and scenes that showed how quickly the US withdrawal was with half drunk cups of coffee everywhere.
Then within days, the Taliban moved on the base and took over billions of dollars worth of weapons, guns, rocket launchers, helicopters and Humvee's as the Afghan army forgot they were supposed to be fighting them and instead handed everything over and decided to join them on their march to Kabul.
I think the US really needs to plan their exit strategy better next time so they don't end up making a rag tag army of locals into a well equipped modern army that could take most countries on.
Do any of the Taliban know how to fly a helicopter though?
I suppose it doesn't matter, the Afghan Army, who the US paid billions of tax payers $$ to train, will show them how to.
Biden said recently that Kabul would not fall because the Afghan army was 300,000 strong, and the best trained and equipped as any in the world.
Shame nearly all of them just laid down their weapons to the oncoming Taliban and joined them.
Can you imagine if the Taliban decided they were really pissed at getting invaded all the time Russia->War Lords->US/UK/NATO and going all the way back to Alexander the Great and they went on the offensive with all their free US military hardware?
From their point of view, an invader is another invader, they have had lots over the years. Everyone just wants to bomb their weddings and blow up their homes and piss on their Korans and cause outrage around the world.
It is sad that the women will be forced back into cloth bags and 12yr old girls will be married off though.
Lets just hope they don't start blowing up more Buddhist statues and shooting people in football stadiums as they used to just before the US invaded them after 9.11, chasing shadows, and a man who was probably already dead if truly on kidney dialysis as was claimed.
In 2002 Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said bin Laden had kidney disease and had two dialysis systems shipped to Afghanistan when he lived there.
I really don't understand if he was on dialysis how he managed to traverse the mountains of Afghanistan holding a drip behind him. Who knows, maybe like Saddam Hussein he could have had many doppelgangers. The photos the US showed just before every election with new speeches from bin-Laden as his hair got darker and his nose got fatter sure do seem to tell that story.
If only those SEAL Team 6 soldiers had turned their cameras on their helmets on when they killed bin-Laden in Pakistan. A man whose neighbour claimed on TV the very next day but never to be heard of again was NOT bin-Laden, if only they could have taken a photo of him BEFORE they shot him.
That was the US excuse for not showing a photo, it was too bloody, but as all the SEAL TEAM 6 had camera's on their helmets they should have been able to take a photo before they killed him for the world to see.
I guess it was just unlucky that all their cameras failed to work at the same time, and then 22 SEALs from the elite ‘Team Six’ unit that killed Osama bin Laden lost their lives to a "lucky shot" by RPG's fired by the Taliban. I doubt it was any kind of message to "shut you mouth" to the rest of SEAL TEAM 6 of course, that would just be conspiracy madness.....
However compare the capture and parading around of Saddam Hussein, and even the videoing of him being hanged that snuck out, to the no pics, killing of a man who was supposedly the evil mastermind behind 9.11. Osama bin-Laden, who was just tossed in the sea despite Saudi Arabia saying they would take his body.
This master of evil behind the war on terror, who Obama said had to be killed before the war would end however was not the finishing point of the pointless war. Once he was killed, did the war end. No it just moved around the globe from coups in South America and Eastern Europe, to invading Syria and bombing Iranian diplomats at Iraqi airports.
However there were reports in Saudi papers of bin-Ladens funeral in 2001, and that his son visited his grave, also Benazir Bhutto claimed on an interview that "everyone knew" bin-Laden had been dead for years - so what were the US doing in the Stan apart from protecting poppy fields and importing them back on planes just like Vietnam.
I really want to know though if he was in the Stan, how he was able to outrun the NATO forces time and time again carrying his dialysis machine behind him - oh yeah - he had that massive cave fortress, that Dick Cheney showed us in that cartoonish picture. Fitted with hospital rooms, training facilities, bedrooms, gyms, massage parlours, the whole shebang - it was a miracle mountain hide out for any James Bond villain to live in.
I tried to find the comical picture we were shown on TV at the time but it's almost as if it's been wiped off the web. Now who would want to do such a thing?
The nearest I got was this image about how the US troops cleared out bin-Laden's Tora Bora mountain strong hold. Now just imagine this picture without the soldiers and lots of little rooms on 3 levels throughout the mountain, that would be more like the picture we were all shown of his hide out in the mountains.
Did we ever get to see a real life image of this massive hollowed out mountain with secret entrances and hospitals inside? I can't remember seeing anything but dusty old hollowed out tunnels, but then the US politicians such as Cheney and Powell said it existed, just like the WMD in Iraq, so I guess it must be true......
Biden said that this was not like the fall of Saigon, and you would not see helicopters rescuing American diplomats from the roof of their embassies then guess what, lots of video came out showing exactly that.
Invading other people's homeland's on any pretext just isn't right unless that country like NAZI Germany is threatening to go off and take over other countries.
If we actually DID fight for the oppressed and to help the people of the world we would be at war with China now, who are keeping a million ethnic Uighurs and other Turkic-speaking Muslims being held in Xinjiang’s concentration, oh sorry, re-education camps, according to a U.N. report released in August.
But no, war these days is about making money for the lobbyists that fill the halls of Washington, pushing for the invasion of this country or that, just so they can fleece the American tax payer some more by over charging them for weapons and kit.
We may not like the Taliban's 12 century Islamic ideals but we cannot force democracy on a country that does not want it. I think the last 20 years of a failed attempt in Afghanistan proves that point.
All the Taliban asked for was some "proof" that bin-Laden was behind the 9.11 attacks, which he wasn't, even the FBI most wanted list didn't list that crime against his name due to the lack of evidence.
However the US were too gung ho to offer another country some proof that their guest had committed the attacks when apparently after 190+ water boarding's we find out it was all KLM's idea anyway. That is of course if you don't want to really look into 9.11 and see all the Israeli and Saudi involvement in the attacks.
I think the USA should give the constant war against a word, "terror", a miss for a while.
Americans and Brits have lost liberties and freedoms that Bush claimed the Taliban hated us for, and we just handed them over to the government and said "protect us".
Therefore taking George W Bush's speech at face value, the US basically lost their war on terror as soon as the PATRIOT act was signed.
They have lost in Afghanistan, lost in Iraq, and lost in Vietnam. I guess just having the best fighting toys in the world doesn't mean a toss if you're fighting a guerrilla war against a people who one minute sit down and drink tea with you then the next are shooting at you.
All the locals see is another invading army wanting to change their customs and kill them.
From Wikipedia that 100% fact checked and totally honest log of history comes a list of invaders of Afghanistan over the years....
Afghanistan is a mountainous landlocked country at the crossroads of Central and South (Southern) Asia. Some of the invaders in the history of Afghanistan include the Maurya Empire, the Greek Empire of Alexander the Great of Macedon, Rashidun Caliphate, the Mongol Empire led by Genghis Khan, the Timurid Empire of Timur, the Mughal Empire, various Persian Empires, the Sikh Empire, the British Empire, the Soviet Union, and most recently a coalition force of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) troops, the majority from the United States, which entered the country in the first-ever invocation of NATO's Article 5 "an attack on one is an attack on all" following the September 11 attacks in the United States.
The country is now entitled the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and has a democratically-elected government. However since American withdrawal, the Taliban has regained 100% of the territory. > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invasions_of_Afghanistan
Can we just leave the country alone for a bit, I know it a key area in the Grand Chessboard, and has been used for attacks on India but really, no-one ever manages to keep the country, and they are all eventually defeated.
We can not introduce Western Values by bombing weddings and funerals and firing $500k hellfire missiles into mud huts that had already been struck multiple times by similar weapons.
The only winners in this war were the MIC, who made billions from inflated prices, arming the US military, over-charging them for bombs and guns, boots and kit.
They must be looking at a globe in their Washington offices at the moment just trying to pick out a new enemy in their never ending war OF terror.
