There are certain professions that can’t ignore reality the way politicians, social “scientists” and even economists can and so often do.
Those are engineering and the military. Case in point, NATO troops (read, Anglosphere troops as they’re the only ones who do any fighting) have stopped running joint missions with Afghan troops. Why?
Afghan government troops — our allies — have turned their guns on NATO forces 36 times this year, killing 51, most of them Americans
Motherfuckers. My new Afghan strategy is looking better and better.
My new Afghanistan strategery is to drop a bunch of FAEs around the country to show them what happens when you piss us off and then get out of Dodge, tell Blackwater (or whatever they’re calling themselves these days) and other mercs to get out and tell the Afghans they really don’t want to fuck with us again cuz next time we’ll just send B-52s and bomb them back to the stone age (about 100 years regression in other words).
Karzai will be dead about 20 minutes after he loses his foreign bodyguards and the Taliban can move back in.
I would even be in favor of a nuke or two along the Afghanistan/Pakistan border as a message to both Afghanistan and Pakistan to not fuck with us. Sign deals with India saying that an attack on them is an attack on us and let those two shitholes be shitholes.
Kinda like FrnakJ’s “Nuke the Moon” strategery except “Nuke Islamic Shitholes” strategery.
Ahhh, now remove just a couple of strategic parts and that’s all about teh win.
