Joe Biden: America Has No National Interest In Afghanistan

YES.

Exactly.

It is their country, not our country. It is on the other side of the world. As long as no terrorist attacks on our country are being launched from Afghanistan, we are good. That’s the deal.

Who cares if the Afghans want sharia law instead of liberal democracy? Who cares if Afghanistan becomes an Islamic emirate? Who cares about women’s rights in Afghanistan? Why should we import all the cosmopolitan liberals and cowards from Afghanistan who didn’t fight into this country?

The Week:

“As Judd Legum writes at Popular Information, big outlets have almost exclusively turned to critics of the Afghanistan withdrawal in their coverage, and in virtually every case people who supported the invasion and occupation. A public relations specialist told Popular Information that TV bookers were straight-up refusing to have anyone on who supports the decision to withdraw. Indeed, as Eric Alterman writes at The American Prospect, many people now being given a platform to hector Biden about his supposed failures were not only directly involved in the catastrophically bungled occupation but were revealed in The Washington Post‘s “Afghanistan Papers” to have blatantly lied to the public about how well it was going. The Post itself is not innocent either — a recent David Ignatius op-ed compared Biden’s team ending a war to the infamous Vietnam-era “best and the brightest” who started one.

It goes without saying that until this outbreak of hysterics, the mainstream media had almost totally ignored Afghanistan for the last decade. Nobody except a handful of intemperate critics read the dozens of Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) reports showing the occupation was a cataclysmic disaster through and through. The main evening news programs on broadcast TV spent a grand total of five minutes combined on the country in 2020, and even before the pandemic barely more than that. As Jim Lobe writes at Responsible Statecraft, “the three networks devoted a total of only 362 minutes to Afghanistan in the preceding five years, or just two hours of coverage per network, or an average of only 24 minutes per network per year.”

It seems the media thinks it’s fine to flush trillions of dollars down the toilet and get hundreds of thousands of people killed in a spectacularly doomed occupation, so long as the brutality is relatively easy to ignore. …

Finally, there is the fact that wars are extremely profitable for a small group of elites with deep connections to the press. Much of the tens of billions of dollars in occupation money was gobbled up by corrupt defense contractors who turned in shoddy work or straight-up fleeced the taxpayer. These contractors have hired dozens of former military officers who then go on television without disclosing that they have a direct financial interest in the conflicts they invariably advocate prolonging.  …”

Many people have noticed this.

The media didn’t get angry with Joe Biden until he did something right. He made a wise decision which was based on experience and reality.

  1. Dementia Joe does have his moments of clarity occasionally. The Deep State didn’t count on that. They have a plan for that too called President Cackling Kamala, Cackler in Chief.

  2. “Who cares if the Afghans want sharia law instead of liberal democracy? Who cares if Afghanistan becomes an Islamic emirate? Who cares about women’s rights in Afghanistan?”

    You are implying that Afghans don’t want or are incable of anything better than Islamic feudalism. Remember that Afghanistan was an independent SECULAR socialist republic until WE overthrew it. Afghan women WERE going to school, and to college, even in mixed gender classes, and many were wearing Western dress in the urban areas, when the U.S. decided to hire and trained Pashtun tribesmen – the Mujahideen – to go into Afghanistan to overthrow the Russian-supported republic and establish “radical Islam,” and drug warlord-y, in its place: https://starkrealities.substack.com/p/zbigniew-brzezinski-godfather-of

  3. I totally agree. Also the Taliban are not engaged in international terrorism. They are only interested in their own country and to rule their own country. I dont care what they are doing over there, as long as those savage hordes stay out of Europe

  4. Barely-there Biden didn’t do this because it was the right thing to do. He was ordered to do this by his masters, the banksteins.

    This is all about China’s BRI and the long-term creation of a Eurasian super state. Biden will do NOTHING that puts America first. Absolutely nothing.

  5. But the newly formed Yankee Empire under Lincoln surely had/has national interests in the South.

    Before the War for Southern Independence the South was paying 85% of the taxes and then that anti-South pro-North government was taking that tax money and spending 75% of it up in the North.


    Southerners seceded to govern themselves. They expected to live in peace, but Lincoln could not allow that and the reason was 100% economic.

    If it wasn’t, Northerners like The Chicago Times would not have said things like:

    In one single blow our foreign commerce must be reduced to less than one-half what it now is. Our coastwise trade would pass into other hands. One-half of our shipping would lie idle at our wharves. We should lose our trade with the South, with all its immense profits. Our manufactories would be in utter ruins. Let the South adopt the free-trade system, or that of a tariff for revenue, and these results would likely follow. If protection be wholly withdrawn from our labor, it could not compete, with all the prejudices against it, with the labor of Europe. We should be driven from the market, and millions of our people would be compelled to go out of employment

    The Northern economy was largely based on manufacturing for the South and shipping Southern cotton…

    Without the South, the North was dead economically.

    Without the North, the South, with 100% control of King Cotton, would ascend to dominance in North America, and Lincoln knew it.

    Southerners were already paying 85% of the taxes yet 75% of the tax money was being spent in the North. Secession meant turning all that money inward, back on the South.

    Southerners wanted desperately to manufacture for themselves to get out from under the North’s inferior goods that were greatly overpriced because of tariffs. In the meantime Southerners could buy from Europe at much lower prices than they had been paying.

    The Morrill Tariff, passed by greedy, economically ignorant Northerners in the U.S. Congress after the Cotton States seceded, raised the rate for entry into the North to as high as 60%, as compared to the South’s low 10% tariff for the operation of a small federal government in a States Rights nation. This threatened to shift the entire Northern shipping industry into the South overnight as Northern ship captains beat a path to the South where free trade reigned and protective tariffs were unconstitutional.

    The loss to the North of their captive Southern manufacturing market, together with the damage to their shipping industry by the Morrill Tariff, was a one-two punch they would not be able to recover from. That’s before even considering the loss of the 85% of tax revenue the South had been paying…

    With everything Southerners had to gain economically by independence, it is absurd to say they seceded to protect slavery.
    — Kizer, Jr.,Gene, “Robert E. Lee and Me”, Abbeville Institute, 04/06/2021

    So guess how the North covered their greediness in unconsitutionally invading and conquering the states that seceded in the South? At first Lincoln tried to make the claim he was just preserving the Union by conquering the South but when the North started losing the war Lincoln finally had to play the slave card and join those false abolitionist “ministers” who were falsely accusing the South of sinning by allowing the institution of slavery which is an accepted institution sanctioned in the Bible.

    “Why, then, in the absence of all control over the subject of African slavery, are you agitated in relation to it? With Pharisaical pretension it is sometimes said it is a moral obligation to agitate, and I suppose they are going through a sort of vicarious repentance for other men’s sins… Who gave them a right to decide that it is a sin? By what standard do they measure it? Not the Constitution; the Constitution recognizes the property in many forms, and imposes obligations in connection with that recognition. Not the Bible; that justifies it. Not the good of society; for if they go where it exists, they find that society recognizes it as good…”
    –Jefferson Davis, speech in Boston, 10-11-1858.

    “Let the gentleman go to Revelation to learn the decree of God – let him go to the Bible. … I said that slavery was sanctioned in the Bible, authorized, regulated, and recognized from Genesis to Revelation. … Slavery existed then in the earliest ages, and among the chosen people of God; and in Revelation we are told that it shall exist till the end of time shall come. You find it in the Old and New Testaments – in the prophecies, psalms, and the epistles of Paul; you find it recognized – sanctioned everywhere.”
    –Jefferson Davis

    “It was necessary to put the South at a moral disadvantage by transforming the contest from a war waged against states fighting for their independence into a war waged against states fighting for the maintenance and extension of slavery…and the world, it might be hoped, would see it as a moral war, not a political; and the sympathy of nations would begin to run for the North, not for the South.”
    — President Woodrow Wilson, “A History of The American People”, page 231

    And…


    Of the seven Cotton States that first seceded and formed the Confederacy, only four issued declarations of causes for their secession. In fact, those four declarations of causes were the only four issued by any of the 13 states represented in the Confederate Government…

    The four declarations of causes do mention slavery along with numerous other grievances including economic, constitutional, and the hatred used by the North to rally its votes in the election of 1860.

    That hatred was the primary reason for Southern secession. Northerners had supported murder and terrorism against the South. They had financed John Brown and sent him into the South to murder Southerners. He had hacked pro-South settlers to death in front of their families in Kansas.

    Lincoln’s party also used Hinton Helper’s The Impending Crisis as a campaign document. They had hundreds of thousands of them printed and distributed coast to coast. It called for slave insurrection and the throats of Southerners to be cut in the night.

    Would you allow people who hated your guts and were already at war with you to rule over you? What kind of stupid, cowardly people would do that? Certainly not Southerners.

    — Kizer, Jr.,Gene, “Robert E. Lee and Me”, Abbeville Institute, 04/06/2021

    So the Yankee Empire now mellows out a little under Joe Biden and gets soft on Afghanistan but they still love to keep pounding on their conquered territory in the South by keep accusing them of sins they never committed and promoting Blacks and 3rd worlders over them whenever they can and approve opening up our Southern border so the Whites in the South can be eventually be driven out all the while overlooking the crimes of domestic terrorists on the Left and pointing the finger at those on the Right (many of whom live in the South).

    And meanwhile some of the states up in the North have white populations of over 80% ***. (Please fill these “lily-white” states up in North with every non-white “refugee” you take in from now on. Thanks.) And why didn’t all the freed slaves move into the Northern states and get free handouts to keep them from starving? Probably the same reason that the Underground Railroad ran all the way up into Canada and didn’t stop in the North and plus the Yankee Empire needed stooges for their puppet governments in the South as they recently had in Afghanistan.

    So, you can withdraw your Yankee Empire military from the South after 150+ years of occupation since you are in wimp mode now and fleeing your puppet fake government(s) leaving them holding the bag while you prepare for other nations to invade and pollute with your godless “gay” rights and the murdering of unborn children “gospel”.

    May God Save the South!
