I am expecting to get a lot of hate and a lot of unfollowing with this one. But I feel, and especially in light of recent events, it needs to be said.
If you totally hate me after this post, know that I am sleeping and “suffering” from side affect of the vaccine, lol
It’s time to put Sept 11 2001 in the past. Let this be the last year we “honour”.
We just essentially ended a 20 year war, that did nothing in the end. Because that’s not how you “win”. Violence only begets violence.
When you think about Sept 11th, it happens every day in countries like Afghanistan, Iraq.
Yes, it was the first attack by ISIS on Western soil. It hasn’t been the last time, and personally, I just feel like every time it comes up, everyone says to them that we’ll fight with a “Christian God”.
Well that “Christian God” has just been used as a excuse to ban abortions in Texas (despite God doing these himself). That Christian God, is why ISIS hate Westerns.
What have we learnt by going in and invading? Not much really. Well, one that was the beginning of the end for a lot of politicians. As THE PEOPLE DID NOT WANT TO GO TO WAR IN THE FIRST PLACE.
When will us Westerners LEARN that you cannot just storm in on old cultures and make them “better” aka make more them Western. IT’S NEVER WORKED!
It’s starting to come out now that when the allies went over, they decided to give them US style helicopters and weapons, and then … didn’t train them, that was over seven years ago. So while yes, the US left weapons in Afghanistan. The Taliban don’t really know how to use them, and they haven’t been trained in how to use them and upkeep. The Afghan National Army have been more trained in how to use them, and have enveloped some of the Taliban in it too. But why would you leave ANY weapons?
