AFGHANISTAN, WAR ON DRUGS, CIVIL WAR, HUMAN NATURE
Biden lives and speaks staff advisor words. The Biden staff numbers in the 100s with dozens of sub-committees — mostly elite Ivy League graduates. The core Taliban not only lacks formal education, they lack blue collar skills like farming, carpentry, wielding, plumbing, logistics, etc. For the Taliban the choice is fight and control or be totally irrelevant and starve to death. Disdain for education, women is just default mechanism of survival by establishing “religious” code in name government that esteems their norm — which is basically what we would call a red neck who doesn’t even know “southern engineering” (duct tape, vise grips, gardening, pocket knife) skills.
Biden’s staff — raised mostly in affluent families with often little manual labor or common people skills are completely clueless about even a fist fight, let alone barbaric kill or be killed — hence clueless about military evacuation of Afghanistan.
In essence we have 100s of Talibans from Mexico south to Bolivia and Venezuela, they are called “cartels” or “narcos”. There is no way an Afghan army puppet of American Empire with no cultural traction was going to stand. Look at our 50 year “War on Drugs”. Right. Biden staff can’t understand it to construct a response, they went to Harvard and Princeton and focused on SAT scores. The only path I can think of to cut our 1/4 Trillion $ annual expenses for military practicing in Afghanistan would have been to identify a small easily defended and supplied area (Afghanistan is land locked). Put the US backed Afghan government and army there with a small US military base. Let drones protect farmers and from mortars at perimeter of small “Free Afghanistan” country. We could have monitored Taliban from this small base area. We actually should pick this tactic still and go back in to create a “refuge” zone which could become “People’s Of Democratic Afghanistan” (PODA). This is too way outside the box for preppy Ivy Leaguers and well beyond the cognitive skills or constitution of Joe Biden.
Moreover, we (the USA) are in a Civil War (again) it’s just that in 2021 wars look really different. On one side is the Democratic Republican Party (DRP, every legal citizen votes for representatives then the reps actually do public service government). On the other side is the “MAGA Party” which is a fascist nationalistic party which has a spokesperson but oddly the spokesperson is old. There is a 3rd party, the American Socialist Party with an old white guy and some young women leaders. The MAGA Party is sorta anti-vax, pro-religion, anti — minority/women/LGBTQ, racist when convenient for the same reasons as the Taliban — religion and revolutionary chaos is better than irrelevance and destitution. The DRP will win by shear numbers and technology (just like north in 1861–1865) but not with Biden, it will get bad enough the DRP will accept an outsider that none of the power likes or is comfortable with but is needed for survival.
