[ Editor’s Note: These troop withdrawals are now melodramatic, as everyone knows that it will be canceled if US forces are attacked before the September 11 date, something that is quite easy to arrange by a number of entities on both the US/NATO sides and Afghanistan.

But it makes Biden look good, and when attacks do happen, he has cover by being able to say he did the best he could, and that will probably be true.

As VT has covered over and over, and something that well funded geopolitical media is well aware of, there can be no peace in Afghanistan without an ‘arrangement’ for who is going to take over the $100 billion of heroin trade production inside the country.

Yours truly is waiting for review of the feasibility plan on how this control is to be taken away from those who have had control over it for a long time, without so much as a name being mentioned. I do not think they will be going ‘quietly into the night,’ as the saying goes.

Until we see some real public dialogue going on about the heroin black money aspect of the war, consider this effort to be one in the theatrical realm… Jim W. Dean ]

Afghanistan has had internal rivalry for a long long time

First published … April 13, 2021

President Joe Biden plans to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by Sept. 11, 2021, missing the May 1 deadline he inherited from the Trump administration, according to two congressional aides and a senior administration official briefed on the plans.

The decision, which Biden is expected to announce this week, will likely prompt the Taliban to renew attacks on the roughly 3,500 American troops there, which have largely halted since the February 2020 agreement between the Trump administration and Taliban officials.

…The Biden administration “has long known that military force would not solve Afghanistan’s internal political challenges, would not end Afghanistan’s internal conflict,” a senior administration official told a small group of reporters on Tuesday. “And so we are ending our military operations while we focus our efforts on supporting diplomatically the ongoing peace process.”

…”The president has judged that a conditions-based approach, which has been the approach of the past two decades, is a recipe for staying in Afghanistan forever,” the official said, noting that the U.S. exit will begin before May 1 and will be completed by Sept. 11 at the latest.

…GOP hawks, on the other hand, were quick to deride the decision as premature and short-sighted and called on Biden to reconsider.

  1. Always remember, folks, Israel attacked us on 9/11 and got away with it. The “official” narrative of that event was that Osama bin Laden was holed up in the cave in Afghanistan directing 19 Arabs to fly planes into buildings, all lies. It’s not just pulling US troops out that will lance the still oozing boil that is 9/11, it’s coming clean about what really happened on that day. Sadly, that will never ever happen.

  2. Yes more sick theatre until 100 billion a year in profits heroin industry is shut down first…the Taliban did this already, and will do again immediately if the heroin industry protection force ever manages to leave the country.
    Lots of dead heroin farmers and dealers will be result and addicts will lose supply, so will need to turn to the pharmaceutical industry’s synthetic opiates.
    Drugs are just fucked up everyway you look at it.

    • They got Pat Tillman to leave the NFL and fight for the country. Then he wrote home, his company is protecting the Poppy Fields. Then Pat went crazy when heard about Jessica Lynch. The Female Solider that was captured and delayed rescue ? Pat was told Jessica is fine, being treated good. We will rescue her, soo as the Military Studio people arrive. They will get here with all the camera equipment they need to film her rescue. Sadly Pat planned on a tell-all story, soon as he came home. Yep! one of his own Squad members killed him, at close range. So, 911 was also a plan, to get patriots to join. It worked.

  3. Yes, as VT has made plain, America is in Afghanistan because it has something she wants; drugs and natural resources.
