Afghanistan - Back to Square One

Anyone studied history knows not to try and conquer Afghanistan! Just don't!

 

I haven't followed too closely. But on the face of it. It seemed odd that I didn't hear anything of the Taliban for couple of years, then they seem to have managed a full scale invasion operation in the most inhospitable places on earth (one of), presumably from quite some distance away (sure they weren't staying next door to the americans) - without anyone noticing. Just turned up on the doorstep! Surely intelligence/ media could see this coming quite some while away and could have notified those trying to escape and also inform the public about this.

I agree about history with Alexander the Great, the British, the Russians, the Americans etc.

 

I don't believe they wanted to conquer it this time though, but instead just create a pretext for lots of other bullshit, like creating more resentment towards westerners and then opening the floogates to them.

I don't understand why they don't try and fight? Do they not have weapons?

 

Not sure what the views of the average local are in Afghanistan to be honest. I'm sure a lot of the pigheaded men might welcome the Taliban because they get their state enforced brides, but there must still be a lot of folks that don't want to live under Westerners or the Taliban. I guess it just depends how many, and whether they even have a chance at putting up a fight anymore.

According to that great military genius Joe Biden, the Afghans have 300,00 trained troops and an air force to boot. He said that a week or so ago when asked if the Taliban would take Kabul. Have we heard from Bush yet? Has he commented on the debacle?
