Should the West give up on Afghanistan?


Afghanistan

On September 11th, 2001, the primitive religious fascists of Al-Qa'ida - supported by the barbarous, illiterate Taliban regime of Afghanistan - attacked America, killing thousands of innocent men, women and children.

America viewed this (quite properly) as a declaration of war, and attacked Afghanistan immediately. Within ten weeks of the Sept 11th attack, the entire Taliban regime had been destroyed, and Al-Qa'ida had been scattered, with thousands of jihadis dead. They have not staged a mega-attack since. By historical standards, it was a stunning victory.

Attack the West, and your regime will end. - This equation, and the skill and bravery of the American (and Allied) soldiers who enforce it, is what keeps civilization alive against the many savages and barbarians all over the world who would destroy it.

The war



Bin Laden admits 9/11

  1. First note that Bin Laden is an open liar. First in Sept 2001, in front of the world, he denied carrying out 9/11. Later, in front of the whole world, he openly takes credit for it. You have to understand that lying to infidels is not considered sinful by religious Islamists.
  2. Captured private video, Afghanistan, Dec 2001: "we calculated in advance the number of casualties from the enemy, who would be killed based on the position of the tower. We calculated that the floors that would be hit would be three or four floors. I was the most optimistic of them all. .. due to my experience in this field, I was thinking that the fire from the gas in the plane would melt the iron structure of the building and collapse the area where the plane hit and all the floors above it only. This is all that we had hoped for.".
  3. Public U.S. election video, Nov 2004: "I say to you, Allah knows that it had never occurred to us to strike the towers. But after it became unbearable and we witnessed the oppression and tyranny of the American/Israeli coalition against our people in Palestine and Lebanon, it came to my mind. ... And as I looked at those demolished towers in Lebanon, it entered my mind that we should punish the oppressor in kind and that we should destroy towers in America in order that they taste some of what we tasted ... It never occurred to us that the commander-in-chief of the American armed forces would abandon 50,000 of his citizens in the twin towers to face those great horrors alone, the time when they most needed him. But because it seemed to him that occupying himself by talking to the little girl about the goat and its butting was more important than occupying himself with the planes and their butting of the skyscrapers, we were given three times the period required to execute the operations - all praise is due to Allah."
  4. Public audio, May 2006: "I am the one in charge of the 19 brothers"
  5. Ayman al-Zawahiri video, July 2006
    • "About a year before the two raids of New York and Washington DC the leader, Abu-Hafs (may Allah have mercy on his soul), gave a lecture to a group of trainees about Palestine and the Muslims' conditions in Qandahar. At the end of the lecture the hero, Muhammad Attah (may Allah have mercy on his soul) stood up and asked the leader with seriousness and enthusiasm "what is the way to defeat the attack on Palestine?" and America knows very well the rest of the story."
  6. Video released Sept 2006 showing Bin Laden with the 9/11 hijackers.
  7. Video captured by US 2001-2, released Oct 2006, showing the 9/11 lead pilots Mohammed Atta and Ziad Jarrah at Bin Laden's camp in Afghanistan in 2000.
  8. Al Qaeda's Ayman al-Zawahri says they carried out 9/11, Apr 2008. He attacks 9/11 truthers. In his bizarre, hate-filled, narrow sectarian world, he accuses the Shia Muslims of spreading these conspiracy theories, such as that Israel carried out 9/11: "The purpose of this lie is clear - (to suggest) that there are no heroes among the Sunnis who can hurt America as no else did in history." Also here.
  9. Video of Ziad Jarrah in 2000:



Ziad Jarrah and Mohammed Atta, the smiling faces of modern religious evil.
Video still, 2000 (note, this is when Clinton was president).
The following year, these two starry-eyed religious young men attacked American civilian targets, killing 3,000 American men, women and children for no reason.




Bin Laden video and audio

From 2001 to 2011, the world wondered if Bin Laden was dead. There was very little video, and it did not seem totally conclusive. And there was audio, which I did not find convincing at all.

But it turned out he was alive all these years after all. The brave US military finally killed him in May 2011.




After the 2001 war


The Taliban and Al Qaeda remnants, 2001 to date

The jihad in Iraq and Afghanistan since liberation in 2003 and 2001 has killed tens of thousands, almost all Muslim, but has little concrete achievements.

The Taliban have now moved to Pakistan. Almost everybody they kill now is Muslim. These savage enemies of humanity will fight on for years.




The Taliban way of war



In 2009 the Taliban cut off the nose and ears of young Afghan woman Bibi Aisha because she tried to leave her abusive husband.
You can donate to support reconstructive surgery for her.



A Twitter user who should be captured or killed.
The Taliban post messages on the infidel invention Twitter, and they even debate the allies on it.
The Jawa Report says: "While the twitter fight between the Taliban and the ISAF is interesting, couldn't we just settle this like men and bomb the hell out of Qari Yousef Mohammad and "Dr." Zabihullah Mujahid (the Taliban spokesmen)? ... As enemy combatants, killing them is not only legal under the rules of war ... but it just seems like the right thing to do. I mean, we've all wanted to kill someone over the stupid things they've said on twitter. Now is our chance!"



Jews are falsely blamed for poisoning the water during the Black Death persecutions in 1349.
From here.
The Jews were entirely innocent, but the modern Taliban actually do what the Jews were accused of doing.
The Taliban poison children at school in pursuit of their sick and deranged religion.




Prince Harry - Symbol of western nobility and honour

As we see in the Taliban way of war, the jihad has no honour and no morality. It has no rules of warfare. Any depravity, including sexual depravity, is acceptable.

The West provides a great contrast in morality and warfare with honour. The "secular" West has far higher standards of morality than the Islamic religious fighters, who have no morality at all.



The impressive Prince Harry of England is a symbol of the West's long-term commitment to this global struggle against Islamist terror.
The West is a formidable enemy. In the 20th century, it destroyed Fascism and Communism. And now Islamism is in its sights, and will also in turn be destroyed.
Saudi princes live a life of pleasure in their palaces. Enemy leaders Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri hide unseen in caves and Pakistan safe houses. But Prince Harry, the younger brother of the future King of England, and maybe even the future King himself, risks his very life in Afghanistan in this struggle of decency against evil. He has been in combat. He has actually killed enemy Islamist fighters. This is the most impressive act by a member of the Royal family in many years.

The nobility and heroism of the US military:
Dec 2011: US soldier Dennis Weichel comes home from Afghanistan to surprise his beautiful children.
March 2012: Dennis Weichel gives his life to save an Afghan child.
Heartbreaking. His poor children.

Here's a challenge for leftist jerks reading this page: Name any time ever when a member of the PLO/Fatah or Hamas or Hezbollah or the Iraqi resistance or the Taliban or Al Qaeda ever saved the life of an enemy civilian. Ever. Tell me here.




Opinion Polls in Afghanistan



The future




Galway Alliance Against War - Irish leftists still protesting the liberation of Afghanistan from the Taliban, Nov 2008.
They are unimpressed by the destruction of the Taliban regime. They are unimpressed by the destruction of the Al Qaeda camps. They are unimpressed by the 2004 election. They are unimpressed by the fact that girls can go to school. They are unimpressed by the heroic allied soldiers that have died to make this happen. They are unimpressed by the fact that the majority of Afghans support this.
No, these western leftists have a theological belief that all western involvement in Afghanistan must by definition be wicked, and they are uninterested in any empirical evidence to the contrary.




The Abdul Rahman case - What is the future of Afghanistan?

The toughest job in re-building Afghanistan and Iraq is to ensure that democracy and modern freedom replace the backward, traditional tribal and religious laws. This may be impossible, I know. The pessimists and isolationists may be right. The Afghans may not be ready for freedom. We may have to wait decades, or even centuries, before Afghans are ready for the modern world. I hope this isn't true. Even if it is true, the war was still worth it for many other reasons. A pro-West Islamic state is still a major victory over a pro-terrorist Islamic state. But it is a much bleaker scenario.

I don't believe it's true, and it's far too early to give up now. The struggle isn't over yet.



What I and others said when Abdul Rahman was threatened with death:


Pessimism - If Afghanistan becomes a regular Islamist state, should it be abandoned?

Should America really withdraw its support for the Afghan government if things go wrong?



"Look, he has a Bible!" says the Islamic fascist judge Ansarullah Mawlazezadah.
Brave allied troops died for this?

Should the West give up on Afghanistan?

Should the West give up on Afghanistan? The sharia that has been implemented in Afghanistan since 2001 is sickening. The Afghans spit on the sacrifices that western soldiers have made for them.

Perhaps we need to be patient, for decades. Afghanistan is freer now than it was before 2001, and the movement is in the right direction. If regular peaceful elections and a diverse press can continue for decades, the culture war will follow, and the fundamentalists will eventually lose. Let us see the Abdul Rahman case, and the other disgusting sharia cases, as part of the long struggle within Afghanistan. The struggle goes on. But America must express its anger with Afghanistan again and again. Each of these cases should bring new threats and sanctions from America. I still say the West should not give up on Afghanistan. But the Afghans aren't helping.





The difficulty of identifying even a single ally in Afghanistan:
Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton celebrate Afghanistan's only female head prosecutor, Maria Bashir, in 2011.
Bashir is under constant death threat for opposing domestic abuse. She received a "Women of Courage" Award in 2011.
Unfortunately, it turns out that Bashir also jails women for adultery.
