Afghanistan Collapse: Letter to the Editor

Letter to the Editor

Today, 8/15/21, the Taliban has overrun Kabul, Afghanistan, to take total and complete control of Afghanistan.  Boy, I did not see the rapid collapse of the corrupt, American-backed, Afghani government coming once American troops left [yeah, right!].
The American trained 300,000 man Afghan army has collapsed in a little over a week following the withdrawal of American troops.  In our illegal and immoral 20 year occupation of Afghanistan (falsely claimed by President Bush and others to have been responsible for the tragedy of 9/11) over 2,400 US soldiers have been killed and 10s of thousands of other US soldiers have been crippled, maimed, and injured, and this does not consider the hundreds of thousands of Afghanis killed and injured (many of whom were civilians).
We have spent over 2 trillion (yes, trillion) dollars on this deliberately failed campaign.  In economics there is a principle called “opportunity cost.” What it means, simply put, is that money spent in one place cannot be spent in another place.  Just imagine if those trillions were used instead to fund national health care or enhanced social security retirement benefits for the general public.
While I never supported the missions to invade Iraq and Afghanistan neither did I want to see our servicemen killed or injured.   I shutter to think of surviving paraplegics and quadriplegics who now realize that they were mere sacrificial pawns who were fighting a proxy war on behalf of Israel and American Zionists.  Their service, and the service of all American and allied soldiers, was in vain–to put it mildly.  I only hope there is not a spike in suicides among surviving crippled American veterans.
Viva la revolution!

  1. Afghanistan is Vietnam redux. Right down to Afghan employees of US trying to jump on departing planes. And, here comes the long line of ex and current military losers talking about al qaeda on the MSM. Braindead Americans will believe any garbage spouted by a uniform with ribbons. Really, one of the dumbest populations on the planet.
