WHY ARE FOLKS Who OUGHT TO KNOW Better Starting to Agitate for a Go back to Afghanistan?

I dont think anyone can accuse me to be a simp for Joe Biden. Having said that, sometimes the proper things are done, and we have to give him credit. Among those things is following through on President Trumps decision to leave Afghanistan.

Despite the fact that Bidens execution of our withdrawal from Afghanistan was an utter dogs breakfast of failure on every level and demonstrated that the Biden White House, his woke Defense Department, and the white rage cult commanding our military forces weren’t around any task of any significance (Deputy Secretary of State Claims That the procedure Worked for the Afghanistan Mission and ALL YOU Know Is Wrong), your choice was 20 years overdue.

By enough time we left Afghanistan, we’d been at war there longer than a few of the soldiers fighting the war have been alive. Why were we there to begin with? As the plot to attack America on September 11, 2001, was hatched there by al Qaeda forces in training camps protected by the federal government. The mission of destroying those camps and removing the federal government that had protected them was articulated by President Bush in October 2001.

That problem have been solved by the spring of 2002. Then, in April 2002, George Bush gave a speech that organized an expansive arrange for fixing Afghanistan and rendering it a location where peace will undoubtedly be achieved via an education system for children which works, and develop[ing] an economy that may feed its people without feeding the worlds demand for drugs. That section begins at 23: 42 of the video.

Since we accomplished the mission of overthrowing the Taliban and routing al-Qaeda out of these camps, I’ve one question. Now what? What does a win appear to be when our objective is transforming Afghan society, culture, and economy? Just how do we realize when weve done enough? Did anyone think they might alter a society that treats women like chattel without resorting to repopulating the united states with individuals who weren’t Afghans? Did anyone think about the possibility that by meddling in Afghan culture and society, particularly at the household unit level, we may be recruiting troops for the Taliban? Did we believe by sending DEA agents to eliminate opium poppies, the only real cash crop obtainable in large places, we may be encouraging farmers to kill us instead of grow kale or quinoa?

In my own long-held view, our best play was to leave in 2002 and inform you that when things started regressing, wed be back again to kill people and break things. I believe the CIA whacking long-in-the-tooth, out-of-the-loop al-Qaeda chieftain Zayman al-Zawahiri is really a validation of the withdrawal (Al-Qaeda Chieftain Ayman al-Zawahiri Killed by CIA Drone Strike). Yes, the Taliban gave their word they wouldnt shelter terrorists through the negotiations process, but did anyone really believe it? We located al-Zawahiri, rumor has it he was ratted out by among the Taliban factions, and we killed him.

What concerns me now could be that Im reading individuals who call themselves conservatives that are criticizing Biden because al-Zawahiri arrived in Afghanistan. Give me a rest. Needless to say, terrorists are likely to arrive there. The question is, what do we do about any of it? Do we adopt the Bill Clinton strategy of tying ourselves in that legal knot that people stop ourselves from acting? Because make no mistake about any of it, al-Qaeda grew in Afghanistan because Bill Clinton and the over-educated cretins in his administration made proactive measures illegal. Dont take my word for this; read Ghost Wars by Steve Coll; I recommend it.

Tonight on Trey Gowdys show, he interviewed Wisconsin Republican Mike Gallagher. Gallager is on the home Armed Services Committee and expressed the opinion that al-Zawahiris appearance in Kabul showed the failure of withdrawing from Afghanistan and only an on the horizon presence. The unstated implication was that people needed an on-the-ground presence.

We shouldnt become more worried about individual terrorists taking on residence in Afghanistan than Antifa gathering in Portland. We’ve sufficient intelligence assets to make sure camps dont form and that the Taliban doesnt undertake a partnership with a terrorist group. If those ideas do happen, we’ve the strike capacity to solve the issue.

Im not saying we have to give Biden a spread the screwed-up stuff he does. He must be held to take into account the tragi-comic withdrawal from Afghanistan. Having said that, once we face China in the Pacific, the final thing we are in need of is really a needless war that doesnt have victory conditions. We did that for 20 years. We shouldve learned our lesson.
