Afghanistan War ironies and uncertainties

Amazing as it sounds, NATO, the world’s most powerful military alliance, may be losing the only war the 61-year old pact every fought. All its soldiers, heavy bombers, tanks, helicopter gunships, armies of mercenaries, and electronic gear are being beaten by a bunch of lightly-armed Afghan farmers and mountain tribesmen.

Why? Well, 10 years into the Afghanistan War, it has just come to light that fewer than one in 10 Afghans are even aware of the 9/11 attacks and their precipitation of the war in Afghanistan, says a study from an international think tank, International Council on Security and Development (ICOS) .

This report from ICOS shows that 92 percent of those surveyed had never heard of the coordinated multiple attacks on US soil on September 11, 2001.

It also shows that four in 10 Afghans believe the US is on their soil in order to “destroy Islam or occupy Afghanistan.”

Meanwhile, NATO nations have formally agreed to start reducing troop levels in Afghanistan in 2011 and hand over control of security to the Afghans in 2014. –But the US appears to have taken conflicting views on when NATO combat operations would end. A senior Obama administration official said the US has not committed to ending its combat mission in Afghanistan at the end of 2014.

One reason why the Afghanistan War so unnerves Washington: The defeat of Soviet armies in Afghanistan in 1989 began the collapse of the Soviet Empire. Could the same fate be in store for the American Raj?

  1. WHEN WE TAKE IRAN AND SYRIA OUT OF THE PICTURE THE MONETARIAL SUPPOT AND MILITARY WEAPONS GRADED TACTICAL CAPACITY OT THE TALIBAN AND AL-QAEDA WILL FADE AND IF CHINA GETS TOO PROBLEMATIC WITH THEIR NOSES IN THE SHIT THEY CAN START DEALING WITH NORTH KOREA AND TAIWANS PROBLEMS IN A HURRY. I WOULD REALLY BE WATCHING OUT FOR THE CHINESE SUBMARINES IN THE PERSIAN GULF TOO FOR THEY WILL NO DOUBT BE PRESENT AND MAY ATTACK TO BALANCE THE FIREPOWER IN THE GULF. SO WE NEED TO OCCUPY THEM WITH A SERIOUS CYBER ATTACK AS WELL AS MILITARY PROBLEMS AND BEGIN THE PROCESS OF SANCTIONS AND MONETARIAL INDEPENNDENCE FROM THEIR IMPORTS TOO. THIS WOULD BE A MASSIVE BLOW TO THEIR ECONOMY AND WE COULDBECOME MORE SELF RELIANT IN OUR INDUSTRIAL BASES TOO. WHICH THE WHOLE WORLD IS STARVING FOR AMERICAN TECHNOLGY AND WE COULD CAATER TO OUR ALLIES ONLY AS WWELL AS SHRINK OUR FOOD SUPPLIES TO THIS AXIS OF EVIL. THEN THEY WILL DANCE TO OUR TUNES AGAIN.. ALSO THERE HAS BEEN A MAJOR OIL RESERVE FOUND UNDER THE DAKOTA`S AND UNDER CANADA TOO.

  2. It’s not War it is a long term tactical occupation we are still in the first decade two more to go.

    It’s a simple statement based on facts.

    • Yes, good point, “long term tactical occupation” instead of simply “war”.

      General Sir David Richards, head of the British Army, and perhaps more honest than most military bigwigs, said he thought that Britain’s commitment to Afghanistan could last between 30 and 40 years.

      History is repeating itself in Afghanistan because America repeated the mistake made by the Soviets, and troops will continue to pay for the folly of the government/Pentagon overestimating themselves and underestimating the fortitude of the Afghan guerillas.

      Unfortunately it is so difficult for politicians and the Pentagon to admit they were wrong. It took 30 years for former US Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara to acknowledge that the Vietnam War had been a mistake.

  3. THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH FIGHTINGT THIS WAR IS THAT IT IS GOING TO TAKE A LONG TIME TO FIGHT IT AND WIN IT. WASHINGTON HAS SPENT BIG MONEY ON GETTING THINGS DONE IN A HURRY AND THAT IS WHAT IS TOO GREAT OF A PRICEE TO PAY. IS TIME. MONEY DOESNT SEEM TO BE A PROBLEM BUT TIME IS BECAUSE IT DETERMINES PRESIDENCIES AND POLITICAL MOVES THAT EFFECT THE GLOBAL FUTURE OF THE PEACE PROCESS. WE SHOULD TAKE A LOOK AT ISRAEL ON THIS MATTER AND LEARN THE LESSON THAT WE DONT HAVE TO BE THE MOST POPULAR OR THE GREATEST PEOPLE OR THE RICHEST NATION ON EARTH TO SUCCEED. WE NEED TO TAKE THE TIME TO DO THIS DEAL RIGHT AND PLAN A WAR THAT WE CAN WIN BY JUST BEING SPIRITUAL AND DETERMINED TO SERVE GOD FIRST ANF THE PEOPLE AT THE SAME TIME AND LET GOD USE US FOR HIS PURPOSE AND NOT OUR OWN GRAND SCHEMES TO RULE THE WORLD WITH FORCE AND AT THE SAME TIME BECOME HUMBLE ENOUGGH TO GAIN THE INTERESTS OF OUR FELLOW MANKIND THAT THINK ALONG THE SAME LINES AND DONT HAVE WHAT WE HAVE BUT SEEM TO BE DOING JUST FINE. THE EVIL EMPIRE IS GREEDY

  4. WE NEED TO FIGHT THIS WAR THE SAME WAY WE DID THE SOVIETS AND THE DRUG CARTEL THAT WE HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL WITH. WE CANNOT CONTROL EVERY MOVE THE ENEMY MAKES BUT WE CAN FORCE THEM TO COMMIT THE FATAL MISTAKES WHILE WE REBUILD OUR ECONOMY AND PLAN FOR FUTURE WARS WHILE WE JUST BUILD BIG CAMPS ON ENEMY SOIL AND WAIT FOR THEM TO MAKE ALL THE MISTAKES. WE NEED AS A CIVILIZATION NEED TO REMEMBBER THAT ISRAEL HAS BEEN FIGHTING THIS WARR FOR A VERY LONG TIME AND THEY ARE SUURVIVNG IT VERY WELL. IF WE WILL BAN TOGETHER AND SECURE THE FREE WORLD AND PROMOTE THE GOOD WILL OF GOD AND IGNORE ABOUT HALF OF THE ENEMIES PROPAGANDA AND FORCE THEM TO COMMIT TO EXPOSIER TO COMMIT THEIR EVIL DOINGS WE CAN WIN A POPULARR WAR FOR THAT IS THE TRUE ENEMY OF ISLAM IS FOR THE TRUTH TO HOLD POWER OVER THEIR LIES. THE TRUTH WILL SET US FREE.. GODS WILL BE DONE. NUKE EM IF THEY THREATEN US. THE ENEMY UNDERSTANDS GUNS, BOMBS AND SWORDS THEY WILL DEFEAT THE ENEMY EVERY TIME. BUT THE TRUTH WILL SET US FREE.
