"Suspected Taliban militants have launched an attack in the Afghan capital Kabul, setting off explosions and sparking a gun battle."
The picture is of a Vietnam battle. It could be from Kabul today. There is little doubt that the corruption of the foreign powers in bribing The Taliban and buying protection for contractors has ruined the "hearts and minds" weak and ineffectual policy. The Taliban have lapped it up. They control this land because it is theirs. The Afghan people automatically lean towards the home grown dictatorship rather than the foreign. As in Vietnam, the fading Western morality is not able to withstand a greater discipline, just as in Vietnam. Our Bilderbergers fail dismally to understand the fundamental human condition of fairness and seek power through violent aggression in trade and financial globalisation with a belief military power can back it up.
