Leftist Democratic idiot Joe Biden at work in this story. But you already know that.

He is the one that removed the troops, like stopping your antibiotics mid-course, not a good idea.

So now your re-infected, duh! Who woulda thunk it?

I have yet to see where we in the West have been able to enrich ourselves with all this supposed gold mine of resources that leftist idiots always ignorantly refer to.

20 years wasted!?!!! This is the American way.
No win in any wars since WWII.

The only winners here in this war were Raytheon, North American Rockwell, Dupont and all the independent contractors who were charging the US government $1,000.00 dollars per gallon for fuel and $500.00 per hot meal served at bases.

Like I said--this is the American way now.
And how about the US Constitution?! Pfffft! It's just a joke. An old scrap of paper to shit upon.

Even the Russians when they invaded in the late 70's were smart enough to get out after 9 years.
But Americans--noooooooo.

This is the same people who gave you the Pinto and The Bonfire of the Vanities movie years back.
Trump was completely correct when he said our government was being run by a gaggle of pinheads and fuck-sticks.

We poured trillions of dollars into a country who's people are still living in the 3rd Century BC.
Most of them do not know how to operate a flush toilet--let alone stand up against tyranny.

Half (or more) of the dough we ploughed into the Afghan military and police was squandered, stolen or wasted.
Now their so-called military is fleeing as we saw in Vietnam--shedding their gear and uniforms.

It is a complete replay of Vietnam in 1975--only this will be far worse.
The Taliban are going to massacre hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of people who they deem undesirable.
It will mirror Cambodia and the killing fields.

So why should we stick with failed policies made by knuckle-heads, implemented by military fuck-tards' who are more concerned about their post retirement deals with the military industrial supply chain (who's cocks they have sucked their entire careers).

Afghanistan was lost on the first day we stepped foot in the country.
After 911, we should have blanketed the Taliban and Al Quaida strongholds with tactical nukes and left the country to smolder.

We should have gone total Ghengis Kahn on these goat fuckers--replete with heads on poles.
That should have been our strategy.

It is clear throughout The Art of War that victory is explicitly related to the strength of an army’s leader. Sun Tzu’s advice for generals and commanders applies to many kinds of leaders.

20. “The general who wins a battle makes many calculations in his temple ere the battle is fought. The general who loses a battle makes but few calculations beforehand.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

30. “Maneuvering with an army is advantageous; with an undisciplined multitude, most dangerous.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

32. “Move not unless you see an advantage; use not your troops unless there is something to be gained; fight not unless the position is critical.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Quotes on War and Strategy
Just like Sun Tzu’s ideas about leadership, his strategic counsel can still be used in the 21st century. Whether you are creating a business strategy or devising steps to pursue a personal goal, these quotes from The Art of War may offer some valuable insights and guidance.

40. “Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

41. “If equally matched, we can offer battle; if slightly inferior in numbers, we can avoid the enemy; if quite unequal in every way, we can flee from him.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

42. “Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

45. “You can be sure of succeeding in your attacks if you only attack places which are undefended.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

46. “O divine art of subtlety and secrecy! Through you we learn to be invisible, through you inaudible; and hence we can hold the enemy's fate in our hands.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

49. “In making tactical dispositions, the highest pitch you can attain is to conceal them.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

50. “Carefully compare the opposing army with your own, so that you may know where strength is superabundant and where it is deficient.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

51. “To take a long and circuitous route, after enticing the enemy out of the way, and though starting after him, to contrive to reach the goal before him, shows knowledge of the artifice of deviation.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

52. “Let your rapidity be that of the wind, your compactness that of the forest.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War


53. “In raiding and plundering be like fire, in immovability like a mountain.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

54. “Place your army in deadly peril, and it will survive; plunge it into desperate straits, and it will come off in safety.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

56. “Walk in the path defined by rule, and accommodate yourself to the enemy until you can fight a decisive battle.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War


57. “At first, then, exhibit the coyness of a maiden, until the enemy gives you an opening; afterwards emulate the rapidity of a running hare, and it will be too late for the enemy to oppose you.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

58. “If it is to your advantage, make a forward move; if not, stay where you are.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

As America exits, history repeats itself in Afghanistan
BY SIMON HENDERSON, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR179
The views expressed by contributors are their own and not the view of The Hill
TWEET SHARE MORE
What are the parallels between the U.S. troop drawdowns in Afghanistan and Vietnam? Everyone, it seems, chooses their own reference point when discussing history or events that may prove to be “historical.” Washington is obsessing over the comparisons with what happened in Vietnam in 1975, but it could be argued that, at least from a policy point of view, the experiences of the Soviets and the British before them in Afghanistan are perhaps even more useful in the learning process.

I speak with a certain fondness for Afghanistan. Although my experience there is dated, my memories are still vivid. The beauty of its mountains is hard to forget, and the comfort of its climate compared with the oppressive humidity of the summer monsoon season in Pakistan was extraordinary.

ADVERTISING

But the detail of my memories is bloody. Within the space of a couple of years, my Afghan diplomat neighbor in Islamabad died in the dungeons of the Pul-e-Charkhi Prison in Kabul; an American friend blew his brains out after a career setback in the city; and a Pakistani friend was shot dead by hijackers and had his body dumped onto the tarmac at the airport.

It is painfully obvious that most Afghans do not desire Liberty & Freedom. The women and girls are just beginning to get an education, but that will cease once again after the Taliban is in control. 20 years was never going to be enough time to effect change, how about a century?

I sat awe struck decades ago when the commie gooks over-ran South Vietnam.
And all the while the fuck-tard-commies in congress were doing the same shite as now. Nothing but yack.
Most notable Bella Abzug (commie-slug).

We are next going to witness a replay of the killing fields--totally ignored by the MSM.
You will only see drips and drabs of it leaked out on alternative sites.

Trump was correct in the fact that our government is run by sexual degenerates, slugs, dunderheads and traitors.

As a side note to Max:

I contacted Jen about taking over the forum later in the year when I work past some health issues I am facing right now--giving me little time to learn about the in's and out's of technically running a forum. She was amenable to the idea and we will move forward slowly over the next few months.
