Blames deposed government for current woes

I mean, the Taliban is a bunch of theocratic murders but they're not entirely wrong that the former government was a bunch of corrupt thieves.

/Though, that's also like 90% of the reason they took of the country so quickly
 
2021-11-27 10:34:08 PM  
This is on the US.

It would be a real shame if some Taliban leadership dudes started coming down with Havana syndrome.

He blamed Afghanistan's famine, unemployment and financial meltdown on the US-backed government he helped depose.

It's the ciiiiiirrrcle of life

But guys when we took over the country we thought we were gonna a get the money too but we didn't get the money allahdamnit! GIVE US THE MONEY!  Please? *Puppy eyes*

Biden before farking up Afghanistan withdrawal:

"The jury is still out. But the likelihood there's going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely"

Bravo.

He blamed Afghanistan's famine, unemployment and financial meltdown on the US-backed government he helped depose. that suddenly skedaddled after propping up their economy through corrupt local warlords as an excuse to perpetuate their ongoing raping of America's national treasure to benefit the even more corrupt Anerican military industrial complex.

There, fixed it for ya.

Conquest is easy. Governing is hard.

Its horrifying to read about children being sold into slavery to feed their families; but there's an easier fix than war: the Taliban just has to stop being reactionary dicks.

I wonder if they will do that?
 
2021-11-28 5:41:38 AM  
Assign someone or a tiny team to release the funds for specific emergency programs.

Our problem is the government, not the people. That maintains pressure on the government for the most part.

Yeah, completely at Biden's feet since he invaded in the first place, used it as a massive opportunity to enrich contractors, started giving up strategic advantages to our adversaries, and released a crap ton of prisoners before withdrawing, and made an arbitrary date to leave. It's not like he had Homeland Security tell people to GTFO, pushed back the deadline at the risk of more conflicts, and extracted as many as possible. By the way, are we still hearing about people left behind? Fox has gone silent on that, sooo...

Biden's not perfect, but if you're thinking it's on him, then you deserve a bravo yourself.

Afghanistan will, in all likelihood, become China's headache, now -- let them bleed themselves dry for 20 years...

You say you want a revolution, well, you know, we all want to change the world, but when you talk about destruction, don't you know that you can count me out?  You ask me for a contribution, well, you know, we're all doing what we can, but if you want money for people with minds that hate, all I can tell you is, brother, you have to wait.
 
2021-11-28 6:11:15 AM  
Alright. I'll offer help.

Extend that help to women in need and women who need education first.

Make a pledge to combat ISIS (this should be a gimme - you both seem to despise each other).

Reduce your hold on illegitimate religious claims.

Promote people on the basis of merit not on the basis of trust.

There's your roadmap. Then I will help you.

They've spent 20 years resisting all previous US attempts to affect such social policy. Especially on education for women -- it was the #1 thing on their "To Do" list, after securing the airport and taking over Radio Free Kabul.

They are sitting on literal mountains of rare earth metals, the Chinese will be happy to rob them blind in exchange for aid.

Hmm. You would need to get zillion tons of heavy mining equipment in and another zillion tons of ore out through endless series of mountain passes, each one controlled by a different tribe who hate each other with passion. So either you pay through the nose to keep the road open or occupy the country.

Oil/gas pipe through Afganistan or turning it into worlds biggest strip mine is one of those things that looks great on paper.

Yep. Afghanistan doesn't even have a railroad network. It will cost 10s of billions to industrialize.
There are reasons opium is the #1 export.

It's not that funny of a joke. Fathers in the hills are literally selling their daughters for child brides for enough food to feed the rest of the family, and in the hope the girls will be treated well and have food and a decent place to live. The girls are as young as six. The parents are living in empty huts with nothing but their older children and the clothes on their backs.

That's the reality of Afghanistan now, so making snide comments about anyone only shows your stone ignorance.
 
2021-11-28 7:54:15 AM  
Well shiat in one hand and wish in the other or slide up to China and get in on their while belt and road program and they will end up owning most of the country in 10 years anyways.

The old addage about hammers and nails holds true. If they wanted their people fed, no doubt aid groups would be willing to deliver goods directly to communities provided they could bypass funding the government.

So, is the looming humanitarian disaster the Terrible Trump Plan or the Flawless Biden Execution of the Terrible Plan?

Biden's people/advisors, just like previous US Presidents, either have no farking clue about the region's mentality and culture or they don't give a fark. Maybe a bit of both?

Nadie_AZ: This is on the US.


GFY

This is mostly on the f*cking Taliban.  They want to go back to the 12th century, they get the bad with the "good".
Partially on the Afghan people, who had 20 years of help to stand up and defend their country.  They had lots of help, and many chances.

It is now, what it is, but most definitely NOT the US's fault.
 
2021-11-28 8:22:19 AM  
'You asked for it, you got it. Taliban.'

Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it.

We probably should release their funds though.

But then they'll find out just how little a one time payment of $10b solves.

Is that any different than what they had in 2000?

Oh wait, no, because they just got finished having a war after having a war after having a war.

What Russia didn't destroy, they destroyed themselves.

You know, the default state of that country.


Oh, and when you have to help terrorists to prop up your economy, that's a big fat stinkeroo.

If it was possible to actually build the needed infrastructure to be able to get the rare earth minerals the United States would have gotten them already. See how long a railroad last.
