IGNORANCE and ARROGANCE of OUR
[Daily Mail, Friday, August 17,2007]
AFGHANISTAN is all set to become
Gordon Brown's IRAQ
It is liable to taint his reputation as
surely as Iraq tainted Tony Blair's -unless he is prepared to grasp the
nettle and pull out.
THE DEATH RATE FOR BRITISH SOLDIERS
IS HIGHER THAN IRAQ AND CAN BE EXPECTED TO WORSEN.
AS some of us who have followed this
doomed attempt to pacify Afghanistan warned months ago, this would not
be easier than Iraq as certain ministers claimed.
At least in Iraq, the biggest problem
is the locals murdering each other. In Afghanistan, the locals may be
all too ready each other - as they have for centuries in a traditional
lawless land - but they can and do unite in the goal of driving out
We should know, having fought three
and been bested in them when we
ruled India and disposed of powerful forces.
There seems no comprehension in the
Government about the grim prospects ahead. The full folly of our
approach is summed up in a piece by
FOREIGN SECRETARY -DAVID MILIBAND
His article: -
'WHY we are in AFGHANISTAN for
the LONG HAUL'
is at once
AND DEVOID OF
UNDERSTANDING OF THE COUNTRY
IT IS NONSENSE, OR PERHAPS WE SHOULD
Mind you, he has visited the place and
'seen for himself' the problems. This is typical politician's FANTASY.
Of course he has not seen for himself.
Do you imagine that he had trailed up and down the country's
dangerous roads, traversed its mountain passes, stopped off in villages
for the night, inspected farms in the poppy growing areas or visited the
competing warlords' territories?
HE DID NOT
-He talked - with various officials,
British and Afghan, under conditions of maximum security. He arrived on
July 24 and left for Karachi on the 25th. Political tourism -it's
Wednesday, this must be Pakistan.
In his article, he sees Afghanistan as
a country needing rescue, a place of considerable poverty -when was it
not? - and one which can only be a 'success' with help from outsiders to
'rebuild' its infrastructure (such as it is). According to HIM on his
'you can sense the quiet pride of
the Afghans' in their determination to rebuild their country.
IN THAT CASE,
WHY NOT LET THEM
GET ON WITH IT
rather than our troops act like a
magnet for militants all over the Middle East?
ARE THE AFGHANS SUPPOSED TO BE
TOO STUPID IDLE OR INCOMPETENT TO BUILD SCHOOLS OR RESTORE ROADS OR
INSTALL POWER PLANTS THEMSELVES?
YOU MIGHT THINK SO FROM THE TENOR OF
We might also note that a
$1.2 billion contract
for rebuilding infrastructure was last
year granted to
2 American Firms
- Well! -there's a surprise!
[Would one be the Halliburton
company which supplies virtually everything needed in the

Apparently the Afghans also need our
guidance in establishing effective(Western-style) political institutions
(Of the Tony Blair variety which shows the world
how to destroy a unique Nation-State of parliamentary democracy
from within by undermining its foundations, institutions and
Miliband claims that under our
guidance, progress has been made in establishing a constitution,
elections and a GOVERNMENT.
But the writ of the government under
President Karzai has scarcely run outside the capital, Kabul at all.
Moreover, the crop of poppies this year , the basis for so many drugs,
has risen to record levels.
[AS for all Mr Miliband's claptrap
uttering will some kind soul let him down lightly and let him know that
very little has changed in Afghanistan for centuries -except the name of
the capital -once referred to Cabal when brave British/Indian regiments
were cut to ribbons and when as in Iraq today when they had a victory
the fruits of that victory were on many occasions later given up to the
defenders. Not much has changed in over 150 years.]
However, we and the others from NATO
insist we will help with
LAW and ORDER
[Something we don't have in ENGLAND
at the present time.]
We will 'train' the Afghan police,
which is as condescending as it is
Afghans know their own country-its
faults and weaknesses.
[In ENGLAND they should be known but
nothing has been done about it, possibly we should invite a hill tribe
of Afghans to come here to frighten the life out of our millions of
DO YOU THINK
-any senior British bobbies can teach
them much of real use beyond how to install speed cameras and parking
IF YOU SAY, 'but we can teach Afghan
policemen how to fight', then that is
since half the problem with Afghans is
IS IN THEIR BLOOD.
And weapons are everywhere, as they
have always been.
According to Miliband, we must keep the
Taliban (among others) at bay to prevent Afghanistan becoming a training
ground for guerrillas.
BUT THAT IS PRECISELY WHAT WE HAVE
Islamic militants, whose numbers we
continuously boost, can go to Afghanistan and receive basic training
(there are numerous sight-seeing tours from
Britain to enable them to visit their relatives and gain on the holiday
training in demolition and how to fire entrances to airports or what
have you. ) in how to shoot ,make explosives,
plant bombs and all the rest
WITH BRITISH TROOPS PROVIDING PERFECT
[ALL FOR FREE FROM THE BROWN-
MILIBAND TOUR COMPANY OR SHOULD IT BE OIL COMPANY?]
All the while we are also feeding the
militants' propaganda machine. Such has been the casualty rate among
civilians from aircraft strikes that Nato says it must use smaller bombs
According to military commanders and
Nato politicians, the answer to the country's security problem, which
President Karzai complains has now been deteriorating for two years, is
more troops. The British Government seems to concur in this as it
transfers men from Iraq to Afghanistan.
WE HAVE HEARD THAT BEFORE
-We have seen it fail in Iraq where
the death toll sets new records.
We heard it all the time in Vietnam
where a force of 16,000 American advisers eventually became a
It is hard to believe, alas, that we
will have an effective
