The swamp's most prestigious creation, the ‘ass is us’ of the USA, has swallowed Afghanistan hook, line, and sinker. We've been reeled in by our news fishermen to flounder in a quagmire that, essentially, begs the question:
Has anyone ever beaten himself to death in a suicide? No! But factions, in control of the U.S.A. at the time, have attempted our murder by slow suicide in a playground called Afghanistan.
When General ‘BetrayUS’ (otherwise known as Petreas) gave that August 21st 2017 (der Spiegel) interview for the European EU consumers, he said:
"We went there to ensure that Afghanistan would not again be a sanctuary for al-Qaida or now ISIS as it was when the 9/11 attacks were planned there and the initial training of the attackers was conducted there."
That's the hook. That's the line; and that's been the sinker: tyranny via historical fraud. Like the Reichstag fire of 1933, it created the drama needed. Lives are, of course, meaningless to the "cannon fodder" crowd.
Donald J. Trump has been lauded for explaining his initial campaign assessment of the war in Afghanistan, calling it “a complete waste” and advocating walking away from it.
Then, later, he said that he understood our frustrations but had come to the conclusion that “the consequences of a rapid exit are both predictable and unacceptable. “Now POTUS is faulted for trying to win there. Well, unwinnable is a term very much dependent on who fixed the fight! Nevertheless, the fight may take a new direction because the very ring around it is rapidly disappearing:
OBOR (my Belt and my Road) and its Chinese grand design for globalization may be a “Beijing plan to entrap the world in its grasp even as China looks for ready export markets for its tottering state-owned enterprises” as Singapore’s majority PAP Party News claims, but Donald Trump’s Artful deal making is never above using some surprising martial arts moves. How these might effect Pakistan and then tremble through to Afghanistan, remains to be seen; but, you can be sure, if it does anything at all, it’s guaranteed to bring the whole coliseum circus down.
