America Leaves Afghanistan to the Mercy of the Taliban and Iran

Iran is waiting for the United States to flee from Afghanistan in order to take control of it and its resources.

A Workable Solution for a Region with Multiple Ethnicities

Throughout the course of its blood-soaked history, all the countries that have become involved in Afghanistan have failed, because all of them tried to resuscitate the dead political body that is Afghanistan. What the world should have done long ago is erase the borders delineated by British colonialism and its Russian brothers and mark new borders that would divide the country into homogeneous units based on ethnicity and tribes. The chance for each one of these units to achieve stability is immeasurably greater than the present situation, because it would be based on a homogeneous, cultural unit with a unified public consciousness, traditional and legitimate leadership, a system of generally accepted public conventions and common goals.

Stable and orderly units that recognize each other’s independence and sovereignty, would be able to enter into joint activities on the basis of agreements and interests, and even establish parent organizations, in order to achieve shared goals in areas such as security (for example the Gulf Emirates and NATO) and the economy (the European Union, for example).

A Failed State that Holds Elections  is Still a Failed State

The Americans and others acted correctly when they invaded Afghanistan in order to eliminate the rule of the Taliban and the al-Qaeda terror bases. This was a noble and necessary deed. But afterwards, the Americans and their comrades did not understand the need to dismantle Afghanistan, and therefore did not do the one thing that could have stabilized the area. Instead, they organized “elections” in which Karzai was “elected,” a leader whose legitimacy is highly questionable and who tries to rule the country by extremely problematic means: buying people with jobs and positions , bribing militia groups and their leaders and eliminating anyone who doesn’t agree to join the unstable coalition of bribery and corruption. Today, Karzai distributes dollars and uses American weapons. In the past, the money and the weapons were British and Soviet…

Resurgence of the Taliban

The war in Afghanistan in late 2001 brought down the Taliban regime within a few weeks, but the Taliban fighters have not been subdued and this remains an unresolved problem. They have reorganized, retrained, equipped themselves anew, acquired more ammunition and  aided by the difficulty of the terrain,  they began to fight back and cleanse the Islamic land of  the wine-drinking and pork-eating infidels. During the eleven years of the United States’ presence in Afghanistan, they have progressively lost area under their control, while the area that the Taliban control has continuously increased. Presently, the United States army controls little of the Afghanistan territory, and its soldiers are in a continual state of self-defense against a cruel and stubborn enemy. The Taliban manage to infiltrate their people  into the army and police force, and thus, during the year 2012, murdered about fifty American soldiers.

Iran is the Winner in these Failed States

The same mistake that the West has made in Afghanistan – to leave the state whole, but hemorrhaging – was made also in Iraq, another failed state that is composed of many ethnic, tribal, religious and sectarian units that do not get along with each other. After Saddam was eliminated in 2003 the world should have reorganized the artificial state into homogeneous units, but this did not happen. The inevitable result is that Iran penetrated the wounded and disorganized Iraq, and after the United States and her allies sacrificed more than four thousand soldiers on its soil and poured out more than a trillion (a thousand billion) dollars to stabilize it, Iran is in total control of Iraq today.

In recent years, huge deposits of metals and minerals have been discovered in Afghanistan. Iran – its western neighbor – is waiting impatiently for the United States to flee from this failed state in order to take control of it and its resources, exactly as it took over Iraq after the American army fled at the end of 2010. It is very likely that Iran will renew its terrorist presence in Afghanistan, but when it has nuclear weapons, no one in the world will dare to challenge it.

So, because of the folly and ignorance of Western policy, and because the leaders of the Western world are paralyzed with fear, Iran manages to control its neighbors, to control the oil, gas, mineral and metal reserves in these countries, and become a regional superpower with critical influence on the global economy.

  1. AS FORMER HEAD OF RABBIS FOR ROMNEY I SAY CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 70% OF THE JEWS WHO VOTED FOR OBAMA/.

  2. My father helped the Shah of Afghanistan to learn how to establish brush factories there about sixty years ago.

    Many people have tried to improve Afghanistan.

    But it seems highly probable that the Taliban will be only rulers within a few years.

    Afghanistan, where 911 was hatched, raises the question of what military responses can be taken against grave threats. Military occupation in large areas seem impossible. What can limit their aggression?

  3. Abu Hamza says:

    Well you come to afghanistan you may do beter as you are a close relative of the pashtoon. Perheps you can understand the nature of the people and region. Dont blame usa and their allies they did what they could.
