While America now processes the wasteful spending of lives and fortunes with the kind of clarity that only comes a day late, we’re reminded of the advice Shakespeare imparted to us through Friar Lawrence: These violent delights have violent ends.

More than 3,500 coalition soldiers have died since 2001, when this bloody and misdirected saga began, and there is some kind of twisted thinking coming from pro-war America that any future occurrence can justify those deaths. Whether or not an end goal exists that could justify the nearly 100 thousand Afghan lives lost remains to be seen.

With Saigon references aplenty, they’re surprisingly few comparisons being drawn to our eerily similar exit in Iraq: American trained armies melted away; friendly groups were slaughtered; advanced weaponry quickly fell into enemy hands. There is thought to have been 184,382 and 207,156 Iraqi civilians killed by direct violence since the U.S. invasion, with some estimates showing that several times as many Iraqi civilians may have died as an indirect result of the war, due to damage to the systems that provide food, health care and clean drinking water. This is what is sometimes referred to as Nation Building.

Reasons for failure

In the United States, high school graduates wishing to enlist in the Army or Navy are required to score a 31 or higher on a standardized test called the ASVAB; the score is roughly comparable to an IQ score on the Stanford-Binet scale to a bit less than 92. The average IQ in Afghanistan is 84.

When we consider that somewhere between 30 and 60 percent of Afghan soldiers deserted the fictitious Afghan army during or after training, often bringing with them weaponry and armor to sell, we see telltale signs of low IQ in action – with failure to delay gratification and an inability to connect actions with consequences being frequent criticisms of the military candidates.

During this same time period, as Americans were dying in futility, Afghanistan’s drug use rates skyrocketed. From 2005 to 2010, the number of regular opium users jumped 53 percent. Heroin use jumped 140 percent. One of the most shocking statistics in the report is the number of parents, hovering around 50 percent, who give opium to their children.

The war on terror became a gamble on not just America’s ability to nation-build – but our ability to people build. $2.3 trillion dollars, far too many people’s lives, and a vast arsenal lost to the Taliban later, the illusions of progress and structure have been overwhelmed by inevitable chaos, like ants engulfing the corpse of a rotting worm.

Conclusion

If anyone thought the end of our Afghanistan occupation meant the end of bloodshed, ten civilians – including several children – were killed in a US drone strike in a residential area of Kabul this past Sunday. The tragic action begs a question: Can a country be serious about winning over the hearts and minds of a nation and indiscriminately kill children? No amount of religious fanaticism achieves what a drone attack accomplishes in terms of recruitment efforts for terrorist organizations.

We have a strangely violent society that falls deeper into debt each day, and it’s time to consider whether or not it’s a coincidence our government happens to share those values so boldly and consistently.

  1. How many of these Afghan refugees did Biden bring into our country? Not to mention the border hemorrhaging millions of unvetted immigrants. It’s simple, destabilize the country, declare martial law and do away with those pesky old elections. Sounds like it came straight from George Soros playbook.

    Of course it was intentional for several reasons such as the following;
    The President:
    • Obviously, as it has been for many years, only cares about himself, his image and party politics.
    • Is only president because he can be manipulated by puppeteers, like his previous boss from 2008-2016, who have succumbed themselves to being driven by lavish worldly wealth, power &/or selfish pride.
    • Appears to have sold out not only his own soul but his fellow citizens & all people striving to build a good, strong character who George Washington emphasized was necessary to maintain liberty & freedom.
    We are now in the time long foretold when evil passes for good and good passes for evil.
    May Heaven help us!!!

  3. Intentional? The thought has definitely crossed my mind. Covid is losing it’s grip on the people. The communist dems needed a NEW CRISIS. Think when really was the last time you heard a new byline on covid. It’s been some time. First the communist dems are trying to RAM through a bill or two that are nothing more than HUGE bailouts of communist run states and cities. Secondly they must keep the FEAR FACTOR going until the midterms. NOW, what do you think?

  4. Old Joe Biden will take any advise he can from the Afghan leaders, hell they know he is about to take Americaa down, it was there goal all along. Talk about a FOOL, it’s hard to beat Old Joe.

  5. Who profits? Not the US, not it allies, now left in a vacuum of trust and power. Only the enemies of the US profit, politically and in their freedom to act, but only China has now acquired the virtual monopoly of rare earths, their own and in Afghanistan, and with it holds hostage the Lithium batteries market.
