I have noticed that the elections in Afghanistan are not going well. I notice, for instance, that the United Nations has declared the victory of Mr Karzai a fraud.
I am largely ignorant of Afghanistan. All I know is that our brave young men are dying there in support of a bent puppet leader. I fail to understand why we are there, knowing full well that historically, the country has been resistant to conquest and we are conducting an un-winnable war for very little demonstrable reason.
Karzai, as I understand it, was put in place by the Americans. Well, I know one thing for sure.You cannot interfere with the evolution of a country. The Prime directive (as Trekkers would say). We will lose this war and Afghanistan will return to a lawless society propped up by the production of heroin that is destined for the Western World.
If you believe in the retribution of God, which I certainly do, you may notice that it is the decadent Western World, with its voracious appetite for getting off its face on drugs, is propelling the state of Afghanistan into a haven for super terrorists, who will one day come and bomb us. We shall die by our own hand. You have to admit, there is a certain sweet irony about it all.
