    A war that should have never began ends poorly. Not a unique occurrence in history. Too many of our people and theirs are gone in such a wasted invasion. My opinion but others can disagree. No ill will to anyone who sees it differently.

    USA succeeded in settings up a Heroin Pipeline directly back to the States. I'm sure the increase in availability and overdoses since the war is just a coincidence.. It's a shame young Men had to lose their lives, fighting for "Freedom".

    The Afghanistan War has been going on my whole adult life - 9/11 happened a few months after I turned 19 and I think like most other Americans wanted revenge (youthful naivety) . If anything the war and subsequent occupation which cost thousands of lives and billions if not trillions of dollars should be a red-pill type collection of events. I always considered myself "based" when it came to matters of race even from a younger age. The patriotism I felt as a 19 year old as certainly waned through the years as I see this country more and more like a modern day Roman Empire as it began it's decline. Politicians, federal agencies, government contractors, three letter agencies, opiate dealers all came out big time winners in this war. By the time Bin Laden was supposedly tracked down and killed it was a very hallow victory. It was enough for the "Merica" crowd to ensconce themselves in an almost meaningless symbolic end to "the war on terror".

    The history of the region was ignored - the culture/traditions/religion/people of Afghanistan are very different. The ego of the US to think they could go in lay down some highways/strip malls and McDonalds to placate the Afghani people and make them one homogenous group showed very little understanding of the make-up of the different groups of people in the region. The "Graveyard of Empires" title given to Afghanistan was more than just a name given to the region, there was a reason and history behind it. These warnings were not heeded. I think we here all see the parallels between the US and collapse of the Roman Empire as well so I will not get into that.

    I'm glad the US is pulling out and in doing so watching the media try to spin it while the rest of the world mocks this country. At least there will minimal unnecessary deaths of US service mean and women who were treated by nothing more than pawns by those in charge. 20 years of failed foreign policy. How many refugees will get dumped into this country now though? I guess at this point it does not matter because nothing more than a miracle will stop the downward trajectory of this country.

    This is the Afghanistani people kicking out a foreign power who have a totally different value system than the Afghani people. It's happened in the past. Nothing new.

    From (voxday.net/2021/08/16/can-we-vote-for-them/)

    "The Taliban........have just issued a list of people who civilians need to report to them so they can be executed.

    Anybody who worked for the previous government
    Bankers and financial workers
    Anybody committing child abuse
    Feminists
    Women in political office
    Journalists
    TV presenters
    LGBT activists
    LGBT individuals"

    Afghanistan has been referred to as the graveyard of Empires.

    I think all the Taliban had to do was show a video of a San Francisco parade to motivate their troops.

    And Leonard Fan's post was spot on.

    The Talibans values are similar to the ultra right wing. The difference if that unlike us here they get sh** done. I don't agree with mass executions but taking
    by our country with morals and values would be a great thing. Vox Day and Owen Benjamin are two guys who have very good advice. I enjoy watching both
    of them. Especially O.B. as he is funny and he encourages homesteading, getting married, having big families and worshiping God!

    The airplane videos are fake as fluck. I don’t believe any of the nonsense stories regarding Afghanistan. All I know is the U.S. has no legitimate business over there.

    Its funny that many on the American far-right are now endorsing the Taliban, it doesn't take much. :D

    I think that if the war is truly over that is good, but TPTB might use it as an excuse for more refugees.

    well right now they are muslim, which is not their original religion or culture, and i'm pretty sure it was forced on the original afghans throught conquest


    as for their values it may look good to far right people on the surface because of how far the west has come and the media inflating everything that doesn't give every right to women and gays, but it is a very leftist and depraved culture compared with european culture
    they have divorce, men get married to second or third hand women (the prophet's first wife was married twice before marrying mahomet and way older than him), they have polygamy as a way to mix the different races :

    and ofcourse they have no room for any kind of racism, even america is more tolerant on racism

    I think the big takeaway here is that a bunch of primitive goat herders, with Soviet-era rifles and beat up pickup trucks, defeated the largest, most advanced military in the world. This is a huge L and an embarrassment to the globohomo USSA empire.

    It should also be heartening to people like us, who feel persecuted by this regime, that victory could be won if and when the time calls for it. After all, we are more intelligent and better armed than the Afghans. When people like Biden boast that “AR-15s are useless against the government’s nukes, fighter jets and tanks”, they are blowing smoke. Asymmetric guerrilla warfare has proven throughout history to be effective and they know this.

    Freethinker! I totally loved your post and actually out loud said a hearty "Amen!" and laughed before I headed out to work earlier. Great mindset, brother. Thanks for the good "report" from you. We may not realize how things we communicate can inspire or make others feel more encouraged by a passing word. Blessings.

    Thank you brother. I’m glad my post was uplifting.

    I really do think that this is a call for celebration. We didn’t lose this war. The illegitimate regime that runs, what used to be, our nation did. They are the enemy that we need to be free of. The Taliban isn’t our friend, but in this one moment, they performed a great service to every heritage American. May their victory inspire us and provide a game plan for when ZOG picks a fight at our doorstep.

    Yes, TPTB hope to use it as an excuse to bring as much of the Afghan population here as they can.

    I heard Wisconsin and Texas would be refugee destinations, great strategic placement.

    The elites don’t care about you, me or any Afghan refugee. All they care about is remaining in power so they can continue to make their fortunes grow. Biden doesn’t care if 50 thousand Afghan refugees are moved into your community and ruin it....his family will be just fine.

    Until these people are removed from power by force they will continue to do the same things over and over.

    Why "zzz"? U don't believe it? They say that Russia - the leader of t free world - is behind him. Of course Washington just gave the Taliban billions of dollars worth of military equipment - just like Washington was always "accidentally" dropping military supplies on ISIS, and all the US spy satellites never could notice ISIS' big convoys of Toyota trucks going across the open desert in broad daylight, and the "great" Trump set up and murdered the one man most responsible 4 defeating ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) in Syria, General Suleimani, and the US media said it was because the general was planning on killing US troops, and then suddenly the "conservatives" believed the US media! Anyway, I don't know, but i hope it's true. The best laid schemes o mice an' Juice gang aft agley!

    Insensitive people like to make fun of how backward Afghanistan is but they do have a National Pastime.

    Sorry there WW. I was tired that day and just sick of it all so I just did a drive-by post. I don't always agree with your posts but you do have an interesting viewpoint and think for yourself. I just feel bad for all the people there who put their trust in the increasingly inept and corrupt U. S. government.
