US Broke Afghanistan In 1979, Should Have Repaired It. But US Deep State Prefers Wars.


Afghanistan was calm in the early 1970s. Soviet and French influence was gaining, though, and that was not appreciated by some deep strategists in the USA. So the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s ISI, Inter Service Intelligence, entangled with the CIA, was unleashed against the secularists in Kabul, and their armies of schoolgirls. Bombing schools for girls became a favorite tactic. Well, thanks to present US policy, of withdrawal from decency, attacks against schools for girls are starting again. As NPR puts it: Afghanistan School Attack: Death Toll Rises, As Do Fears Over Sending Girls To School. May 10, 2021

Sayed Ul-Shuhada school in Kabul was once a place of tentative hope. Impoverished Afghan children studied there: girls and boys who worked as carpet weavers to pay for their books. An Afghan aid group donated a library and teachers helped students paint colorful murals.

On Saturday, it became the site of one of Afghanistan’s worst attacks in at least a year, when a series of blasts appeared to deliberately target its female students.

A car bomb and at least two other blasts detonated near the school gates just as the girls and young women were streaming out, says Sharifa Danishjo, an 11th grader wounded in the blast. More than 50 children were killed, most of them girls, as intended. Long live the Taliban, and those who gives it strength!

The US Deep State fostered Muslim Fundamentalism, in 1979, to destabilize the secular Republic of Afghanistan. Yes, 1979, 42 years ago! Carter’s National Security Adviser Brzezinski to French media: “According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahideen began during 1980But the reality, secret until now, is completely different. Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the [Mujahideen].

That secret operation was an excellent idea… giving to the USSR its Vietnam war… What is most important? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?

Thus the US brought a religious and tribal war in Afghanistan that is now 43 years old. A consequence was the 9/11 attack by ex US ally the Islamist Bin Laden. Bin Biden participates in the cover-up by withdrawing NATO troops from Afghanistan, 20 years after 9/11… Instead of 42 years after Carter’s attack on Afghanistan (that would be July 3, 2021).

The responsibility of the USA is clear, it cannot be escaped by letting more war, mayhem and infamy happen. One cannot just set a country on fire, and then wash one’s hands of the ashes, leaving after stoking another inferno. 

Collapse of New York’s 2 World Trade Center, 9/11/2001. President Jimmy Carter’s work, ultimately. And please do not deny history, just because you never came across it, or didn’t want to know it.

A full re-establishment of the country as the USA found it, before attacking in 1979, demands a secular republic. That’s not possible (the deliberately wrong decisions to make Afghanistan an Islamic republic, instead of secular one, was taken nearly 20 years ago… whether conscious or not, that was a self defeating plan…).

For the USA to facilitate another instauration of Muslim Fundamentalism in Afghanistan, by hypocritically refusing to provide a modicum of sufficient support, is more of the same fueling of religious war as the US Deep and Secret State fostered in 1979. It is one more crime against humanity. It will have dreadful consequences. The US broke Afghanistan, more than 40 years ago, it had to repair it. Instead, cynically, civilization is given to the dogs, so they can chew on it. And the US plutocratic Deep State chuckles: there is no civilization like exploitation, and war is its prophet!

As four star general Austin Scott Miller, present NATO commander in Afghanistan observed: “It is a political settlement that brings peace to Afghanistan. And it’s not just the last 20 years. It’s really the last 42 years,” Miller said… full blown civil war… polite code words for Taliban control, and infighting among mercenaries, looms. “As we start talking about how does this all end? The way it must end for the Afghan people is something that revolves around a political solution,” said Miller. “I’ve also said that if you don’t reduce the violence, that political solution becomes more and more difficult.”

Notice that general Miller is very precise and says a lot with that precision: Miller spoke of “the last 42 years“… That means general Miller is perfectly aware that it is the USA which started the mess in 1979… It is a bit risky to tell the US Deep State that one knows what they have been up to, but I hear that general Miller is very courageous, second to none. A career special operations officer with two purple hearts (wounded in combat), he is no shrinking violet…

This is more than clear, and Biden knows it… But the intuition of the US president on the matter (or that of his Deep State handlers) cynically extend further than war among “stirred up Moslems”. Muslim Fundamentalism has long been propped by the British and then the US Deep State, as a stealthy way to divide, and thus to control, much of the Muslim world and its mineral wealth. Under the guise of peace and wisdom, the US supervised feeding of Afghanistan to the Taliban is more of the same. 

For the US Deep State, this stealthy hereditary plutocracy, the favorable outcome of giving Afghanistan to the Taliban, is always further wars, civil or not, religious or not, throughout the Middle Earth. The Taliban victory is a victory of the tool the USA has long used for leverage in the Middle Earth, Muslim Fundamentalism, suitably obscurantist. Mission truly accomplished, same old same old.

P/S 1: Some all too transparent souls have suggested that the generals who personally disagree with the Afghan withdrawal, the way it is conducted by NATO presently, which is tantamount to a transfer of Afghanistan’s control to the Taliban should… resign. It is not clear whether the USA would have strategically minded generals left then…

To suggest smart generals should resign just because they disagree with civilian authority is in error. In a democracy, the army is supposed to be the best, and that means, obey orders… From civilian authority… As long as gross violations of the Constitution or viability of the democracy are NOT in question (so German generals should have intervened against Hitler in 1937-1939, as they very nearly did). I will hopefully detail this in a future essay.

Giving Afghanistan to the Taliban, as the Biden administration is doing, does not endanger the security of the USA, far from it. Instead it fosters the “Great Game” some more. China, which is friends with Pakistan, will not like to have some “stirred up Moslems”, to use Brzezinski’s expression on the other side of the Hindukush, astride from the Tarim Basin and its aggrieved Uyghurs… So Pakistan-China relations are going to get tense (Pakistan supports the Taliban). Shia Iran is not going to be happy with belligerent, arrogant Sunni Taliban next door…

So, militarily, giving Afghanistan to the Taliban, as Biden is doing, is more of a cynical military opportunity… the US is not in danger, all the more as the peaceniks (who do endanger the US in particular and the world in general) are going to be proven wrong in short order…. Which could only help the US military and the security of the US (while the Chinese dictator Xi launches himself in gory poetical evocations:

China’s rise is a “historical inevitability“. China will no longer be “bullied, oppressed or subjugated” by foreign countries, its chief, Xi Jinping, said Thursday while commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party. “Anyone who dares to try, will find their heads bashed bloody against a great wall of steel forged by over 1.4 billion Chinese people,” added Xi, in bashed bloody comments that later were softened in the government’s own English language translation. His own translators seem to feel their great leader is wacko…

P/S 2: President Joe Biden grew visibly irritated Friday July 2, 2021, when questioned about the state of Afghanistan, where a formal withdrawal is nearly complete, and a major US air base was officially handed over even as US generals warn of a looming civil war. This seems to mean that air support can only come from a distant carrier in the Indian Ocean, carrying a few dozen bombers.

I want to talk about happy things,” Bin Biden said as a reporter asked a third question about the winding-down of America’s longest war.”I’m not going to answer any more questions about Afghanistan,” Biden said later after detailing his drawdown plans, his hopes for the embattled civilian Afghan government and his view of US air support.

Look, It’s the Fourth of July,” Biden said, gesturing with his hands in exasperation. “I’m concerned that you guys are asking me questions that I’ll answer next week. This is a holiday weekend, I’m going to celebrate it. There’s great things happening.” Great things happening, like the “Great Game” starting again? Give Afghans to the Taliban, so as to bother Xi?

Well, Biden knows very well that the US intelligence agencies were given an order of total attack, to add to the attack of many of Pakistan’s 30 (thirty) intelligence services against the secular republic of Afghanistan, in 1979… Biden was a Senator at the time, and not so long afterwards, in the same spirit of creating a mess throughout the Middle Earth, Biden would press to attack Iraq… As the all-powerful chair of the US Senate Foreign Committee… Differently from Trump, Biden can’t plead innocent of what happened decades ago… Diverting huge human and material resources to attack Iraq prevented to do the right thing in Afghanistan. But, of course the right thing in Iraq and Afghanistan, got the US deep plutocratic state is what conventional morality considers wrong. Sabotaging Iraq, and Afghanistan, was more like it, in the guise of helping them. Sabotaging Iraq made US fracking profitable. Afghanistan gave the USSR its Vietnam… Could it give some Vietnam to China and Iran too?

More than cynical… Giving Afghanistan back to the… Taliban? How progressive is that? From Bin Laden to Bin Biden… The Afghanistan “Great Game” is starting again, with a new twist… Similar tactics were used to extirpate Native Americans, let’s not say the US Deep State did not learn from history…

    So much for giving everyone the right mot choose their own life – ll they have is the right to obey the religious fundamentalists. The US seems to be paranoid about Iran, so it fosters something far worse in Afghanistan. The CIA is simply a blundering monstrosity with too much money and no sense of responsibility.

    Of course it is bad for India which has put a lot of effort to establish civil society in Afganistan(long ago a part of Vedic culture and later Buddhism) and on friendly terms with India with India educating its students, teaching them skills and so on. Taliban and Pakistan the bane of India, infiltrations into India and constant attacks makes India help Afganistan to protect itself.The other is China which has become a problem for all civilization.India has much to worry.
