AFGHAN'S TALIBAN GEARS UP FOR ANOTHER IRAQ
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
The Taliban's shooting of 132 schoolkids in schoolrooms takes a special kind of Islam, the Saudi Wahhabi kind, the same kind that ISIS espouses and the same kind that Australian Muslims are breaking their necks to join overseas, but when their passports are cancelled they are forced to commit their terrorist attacks on home soil instead.
The latest drug seizures in NZ and here involved massive amounts of heroin from the fields of Afghanistan, just a small part of the $60 billion cash crop that finances Taliban atrocities.
The Melbourne raids led to the arrest of Ali Aydin, Mohammad Osman, Rami Margus, Kazem Hamad, Mohammed Baset Wahab and Mohammad Danesh.
Now, at the risk of sounding a fraction Islamophobic, those names do seem rather Islamic and in particular Afghani, even more particularly, Taliban. Of course our soft Left legal system will ensure they are all back home planting poppies in no time or happily on welfare here.
Obama has left 9,800 troops in Afghanistan ready for a complete withdrawal of all combat troops by the end of 2016 and the Taliban is refinancing in readiness for a slaughter of civilians that will make Iraq’s ISIS look like another “isolated Islamic incident”.
Failing to learn from the Russian experiment, the Yanks’ terms of engagement included leaving the heroin trade in place... and that seems rather odd because all wars involve targeting of supply routes and eliminating means of financing. In this case it is the Taliban’s only means of financing and one that constitutes over 90 per cent of the world’s heroin trade. More than 200 ton of the stuff is exported through Pakistan every year.
From Pakistan the heroin traverses the Balkan route to Iran, Turkey, Greece and Bulgaria, across South-East Europe to the Western European market, with an annual street value of some $20 billion.
The northern route runs mainly through Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan to Kazakhstan and to Russia. The size of that market is estimated to total $13 billion in street value per year. The Australian market is supplied through West Asia and is extremely valuable as it commands three times the street price of elsewhere in the world (thus the explosion of cheap, locally manufactured, hideous methamphetamine, "ice").
Had the Yanks done their homework before invading Afghanistan they would have discovered that you can’t win the heart and mind of the enemy by destroying his only source of income.
It has been another impossible war to win: Spray the rural farmers’ filthy poppy fields and force them to join the Taliban or ignore the poppy fields and ensure the Taliban is flush with funds.
The stupid Yank solution was to ask the farmers to grow carrots and cabbages instead. Yeah, right, they sure jumped at that!
So here we are again, on the precipice of yet another ideological Islamic holocaust with a blind Australia being used as a staging post.
While the soft Left insists there is no evil in Islam the rest of us simply anticipate the next, "not necessarily Islamic, isolated incident”.
The only nation State that can sit back and enjoy the coming genocide from a distance is the instigator of the $3 trillion halal scam, and financier of this decadent form of Wahhabi Islam, oil-rich Saudi Arabia.
“Oh, but the Royal House of Saud agreed to be part of the coalition against ISIS”, you say. Agreed, yes they did, but only because the ISIS was threatening to raze their many golden palaces.
You see, there is no space for loyalty in the doctrine of Islam.
And the Saudi contribution to the war on the ISIS? Well, they have agreed to Obama’s fawning request to allow US training camps on Saudi soil, but only for “moderate” Syrian rebels.
“Moderate” means you want to kill Bashar Assad too. So would all the “moderates” please line up here and all the crazy bastards we want to kill, all line up over there.
Fair dinkum, if it wasn’t so serious this would be a better comedy than Sony’s latest attempt.
