Recently, a group of United States soldiers were brutally killed in a firefight in Afghanistan. The U.S. soldiers were attacked by terrorists linked to al Qaeda. This is one of the most serious problems that the United States has faced in Afghanistan and in fact, the whole thing is a disaster for America and all she is and has done in the past decade and a half. From a military perspective, it is an utter disaster and yet, the American people are completely oblivious to it.
Why is the United States attacked? What are the reasons given by the government officials and why are they so contradicting? Why did President Bush and his administration agree to give military aid to the Afghan government and at the same time hand out money to the Taliban? Why is our nation getting involved in another land war in the Middle East?
All these questions are easily answered, but they don’t answer the main question: Why did the United States to start the war in the first place? Why are the government officials and media constantly supporting the war? Why are they defending the actions of the Americans? Why are they stating that there is no future for the Afghan government? Why are they trying to convince the world that the attack on the United States was a mistake? Why are they trying to convince the American people that they have a right to attack the government of their ally?
If this doesn’t make sense to you, then you need to re-evaluate your priorities. I am sure that you understand that the government and the media are not interested in knowing the real reasons behind the war. They don’t care if the United States was attacking a terrorist organization or a government or a school in Afghanistan.
They care about one thing only: getting the blame for the failure of their mission. When they failed to accomplish their mission, they will turn around and blame the government of the United States. This may be completely true, but it is still not the most important issue. The most important issue is whether the government in Washington wants to alienate the people of Afghanistan, hurt the people of Afghanistan, alienate the country from the United Nations, reduce the country to rubble, and start an all over search for revenge amongst the people of Afghanistan.
It is highly likely that this aspect of the agenda will be on the agenda of all nations that are involved in the war. It will be used as an excuse to cut off aid to the people of that nation and to extract more money from them. It will be used as a weapon to intimidate the population. If the government in the United States or anyone else chooses to side with this narrative, they should be prepared for a major blowback and very possible sanctions against them and their sponsors. It would be a historic mistake if the United States starts giving money to anyone that starts a war, not even if they have a reason to do so.
Why is the military currently fighting in Helmand? It appears that there is an increase in fighting there, as the Taliban threatens to take the Karbala Pass. This is the road that supplies China with much of its food and supplies ammunition to the military and police force of the country of Pakistan. Whether this is related to oil, weapons, or supplies, it is important to know why the military is fighting in Helmand.
When U.S. citizens criticize the military for attacking a sovereign nation, they must be very careful about what they say. It is perfectly okay to criticize a military operation, but one must remember that every nation has the right to protect themselves. They cannot attack a nation just because they do not like the government of that nation. And they certainly cannot attack the United States of America or our Armed Forces. Please consider this.
