Accountability for Afghanistan
In times of extreme stress and incredible loss of rational thinking among the leaders of a people, a few men or women rise up from the destruction with voices of pure sanity that are actually needed under these dire circumstances so that citizens can have hope that not all is lost.
Marine LTC Stuart Scheller is such a voice. He demands accountability from the American leaders who allowed the worst military humiliation to occur since the sickening fall of Saigon to the Vietcong.
For daring to stand up for his fallen fellow soldiers and their families, who were murdered unnecessarily by the Taliban at the airport, the military brass decided to sanction him for not going through the channels of command to voice his concerns.
What channels of command? Which commanders? The ones who vacated Bagram air base, the most strategic property in central Asia, in the middle of the night like cowardly thieves?
The ones who are more concerned with Critical Race Theories, “White Rage” and alleged White supremacists in the military while ignoring their primary duty to focus on the Taliban and how to leave Afghanistan in an orderly and safe manner?
In WWII, the commanders who did not anticipate or were prepared for a sneak attack at Pearl Harbour were instantly removed from office although under the circumstances pertaining in that year, no one could have even predicted such a scenario.
Other generals were later removed during the war for failing to be aggressive enough in the face of the enemy.
In the case of Afghanistan, it should have been crystal clear to the lowest ranking officer, that vacating Bagram base before saving Americans and allies would have been an utterly insane choice.
Yet, this was exactly what was done. The questions that historians and authors will have to determine is how culpable the military leaders, the intelligence apparatus, State Department and Biden were.
Did Biden – because of his incredible and irrational obsession to overturn every single one of Trump’s achievements – overrule his military advisors and if so, Biden should be impeached and followed by a court martial.
There were 2500 troops in Afghanistan who had not suffered a single loss in 14 months. Why was it so urgent and necessary to remove them while the USA has had over 80,000 in Japan for the last 76 years; 28,000 in South Korea for 68 years and over 35,000 in Germany for the last 76 years costing US Taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars? True there are no active shoot outs in these countries but it can happen any time in Korea and then what?
Bagram was so well defended the Taliban could not take it over under any circumstances. It was because of Bagram’s infinite reach that for the previous 14 months, not a single American was killed and also that the Afghan army was willing and able to stand up to the Taliban. They –contrary to Biden’s blatant lie and unacceptable insult, lost over 66,000 dead fighting for their country (26 times greater than US losses and this does not include wounded usually x 8).
The instant Bagram was vacated, neither the Americans not their allies had the air cover necessary to hold the Taliban at bay. The 13 who were murdered recently happened after Bagram was handed over to looters.
The die is now cast. America is out of Afghanistan with incredible degrees of shame, regrets and betrayals.
The US military should immediately strike and destroy all the vehicles, planes and other military assets worth billions of dollars and the best technologies they left for the Taliban, the Russians, Chinese and Iranians. These should not be allowed to be used by her enemies now or in the future. This requires a decision by all the top military leaders in the USA with the consent of the spineless Biden.
No matter how Biden and his Democrats will spin these cataclysmic events, Afghanistan will become the breeding ground of almost every Muslim terror group on the planet who will then go back to their countries to spread their Islamic faith with terror.
To fill America’s vacuum, the Chinese, Russians, Iranians and Pakistanis will avail their support, financially, politically, religiously and militarily. China especially will attempt to control her strategic rare mineral resources that Biden so cavalierly abandoned.
Americans should at last realize that there is only one Islam. There are no shades in Islam. A Muslim is only a Muslim if he/she follows Allah’s Sharia. All what you read from the media and apologists for Islam are pure, unadulterated lies because only Sharia compliant Muslims are true Muslims. All other sects or shades of Islam are called hypocrites by Fundamentalist Muslims who are the purest of Muslims such as ISIS, Taliban. Hamas, Hezbollah, al Shabab, BokoHaram and others. They are not extremists, militant or radical; they are Sharia compliant Muslims (like Ilhan Omar).
Although Shia and Sunni Muslims hate each other, they nonetheless abide by one Quran and therefore they both hate and despise non-Muslims equally and with the same degrees of contempt until all of humanity either submits to Allah’s Sharia or be exterminated.
Even the Afghan who helped the allies in their fight against the Taliban did not all do so for love of country, but because they were very well paid and taken care of. I am not insulting them but pointing out reality. Therefore, those who are being vacated, not all of them have love for America or gratitude in their minds. They need to be vetted. Those who come to the USA and start attending mosques regularly, will become dangerous because it is precisely in mosques that they are indoctrinated by the imams to follow Sharia; the nemesis of all known freedoms and the exact opposite of the US Constitution.
Why should Afghan women who escaped the Taliban continue to wear the Hijab in the USA? After all, the Hijab is the worst symbol of oppression of Muslim females, so why continue wearing it unless these females follow Sharia? The very belief system that is ruling Afghanistan with terror and oppression.
Have Americans woken up yet to the fact that Muslim leaders – especially males – use terror and only terror to control the minds and actions of their citizens? Why would ‘peaceful’ Islam slaughter any Muslim who wants out of Islam, if Islam is such a great religion? No other religion on Earth mandates the murder of any citizen who changes its mind regarding their belief whether religious or political. Only in Islam does one find these draconian rules. After all Muhammad did declare on numerous occasions that Allah made him victorious with terror.
Bukhari Hadith 2977: “Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.”
Do Americans even know that in Europe especially, the imams in their mosques tell the Muslims that what Europeans are doing to integrate Muslims is not charity but actually a form of Islamic Jizya (an onerous penalty for not accepting Islam); meaning that the European Christians are only submitting to Sharia and have nothing to do with the decency or benevolence of Christians. The same is being told in American mosques.
Sharia compliant Muslims can never integrate or assimilate nor be loyal citizens among non-Muslims/ kuffar/ infidels
