The UK Coalition Cling To One Strategy Born In The Oval Office?
This terrible picture shows the aftermath of Taliban attacks using sophisticated explosive devices our propaganda describe as "improvised". This is the same propaganda used to placate demands for withdrawal. I cannot find words to describe the horror of this or any war. I know that the Normandy beaches were every bit as awful as any casualties in this conflict. However, on that occasion a degree of moral justification existed. I regard the whole response to 9/11 has evolved exactly as the Islamic strategists envisaged. A long term decline of Western economic strength sapped by decades of wasteful fighting, fatalities and severe injuries, as the Bilderbergers jostle for whatever spoils of war they can garner for their own selfish greed. As for the propaganda about handing over to The Afghan Army of Karzai, I refer your attention, should it so desire to be diverted, to;
"The first step of the exit strategy was to transfer the burden of fighting the mujahideen to the Afghan armed forces, with the aim of preparing them to operate without Soviet help. Under Soviet guidance, the DRA armed forces were built up to an official strength of 302,000 in 1986. To minimize the risk of a coup d'état, they were divided into different branches, each modeled on its Soviet counterpart." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_war_in_Afghanistan
Then the actual daily attitude of The Taliban is shown here, http://www.newsweek.com/2010/06/23/what-the-taliban-thinks-of-mcchrystal-s-ouster.html
What a mess and little sign of leadership and direction from anywhere. I am favourably disposed to our new Coalition crowd yet here they just as woefully lack imagination and courage as the incompetents who got us here. Whatever post 9/11 demanded, we failed to see beyond vengeance and recognise the long term goals behind that atrocity. As they unfold, our whole way of life is threatened, not by terrorism but genuinely powerful intellects outwitting our clumsy political establishment, enthralled with Bilderberger greed.
We should not be sacrificing our troops to this weakness, bring them home, other than via Wootton Bassett. That would be a courageous move.
