About three months before most U.S. and U.K. troops are scheduled to withdraw from Afghanistan, the future of the Central Asian country looks increasingly uncertain. Taliban fighters seized control of a strategic district in the province of Ghazni, southwest of Kabul, Friday, Al-Jazeera reported. Their military victory comes at a time when political instability in Kabul…

Fears Of A Taliban Takeover Of Afghanistan Growing

    Its funny to me that anyone out there is stupid enough to think that the corrupt and incompetent govt of Afghanistan won’t collapse to the Taliban or a group just like it shortly after we leave. Like the rise of ISIS is Iraq after we left, there are some people who seem to be surprised it happened. Or rather, seem to be implying that Obama didn’t know that was going to happen, which he clearly did. Are they going to do it all over again when the Taliban take Afghanistan?

    No govt over there is legit until we leave them to their own devices. And since the people who took over were installed by the Bush administration, they are therefore incompetents who can’t rule their own country, there is going to be war when our soldiers leave and they have to provide their own law and order. Extremism is simply too virulent over there for locals to maintain control. We still need to leave so the actual rulers of that country can establish themselves, then we can deal with that.

    Of course they will.

  • And this is supposed to be a surprise? Anyone paying attention could see it was inevitable.

    Afghanistan disintegrated after the British and Soviet Union left after their occupations. What were the neocons thinking when they went into Iraq and Afghanistan in limited numbers. Then we threw around millions to billions in cash like drunken sailors.

    Corruption in Afghanistan is a widespread and growing problem in Afghan society. Afghanistan ranks 174 from 176 in Transparency International’s 2012 Corruption Perceptions Index.[1] (North Korea and Somalia were ranked as equally corrupt.)

    Iraq is only 5 spots up in the CI at 169.

  • (CNSNews.com) – Seventy-four percent of the U.S. military personnel who have given their lives serving in the Afghan War died after Feb. 17, 2009, when President Barack Obama announced his first increase in the number of U.S. troops deployed in Afghanistan, according to CNSNews.com’s database of U.S. casualties in the war.

    Bush took his eye off the ball. Apparently, Obama took his eye off the ball.

    In baseball, batting .333 make you a slam dunk Hall of Famer.

    America is not batting .333 in the Middle East (bushes, Obama or those before them).

    In scoring, a “K” is a strikeout.

    Lots of strikeouts in the last decade + that cost thousands of American lives.
