Due to the difficulty of fighting in Afghanistan, it has been called the Graveyard of Empires. For almost 150 years, attempts have failed, first with the UK and Russia and then with the US in the 1980s. Following September 11, 2001, Americans were forced to pursue what President Biden called a “forever war.” Consequently, citizens should refrain from writing letters to the families of American military personnel unless it is vital to protect American lives and rights. No nation-building has ever been possible in a region characterized by a loose alliance of tribes that frequently switch allegiances. The Biden Administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan has a striking resemblance to Rudyard Kipling’s “That Day.”
The Taliban would never dare to approach American Soldiers in open combat. According to reports, the Taliban now appears to be going door to house in search of collaborators. Reporters assert that the country should have evacuated its civilians before, rather than following, Biden’s August 31 withdrawal deadline. It is not the first time the United States has abandoned allies to terrorists and repressive governments. Former VA Secretary Robert L. Wilkie outlines why the US withheld military assistance to South Vietnam following the communists’ violation of the 1975 peace agreement.
As demonstrated by the Communists’ treatment of South Vietnamese, Pol Pot’s mass murders in Cambodia, and Mao Zedong’s government’s extermination of tens of millions of Chinese, That is why, despite its promises of autonomy, Communist China openly thrashes its people. A question was raised that if Taiwan, Israel, and Japan should Build Nuclear Weapons? However, Israel should develop nuclear weapons if it does not already have them. It is the only way to ensure that “Never Again” truly means Never Again.
Moreover, if Iran or other evil actors attempt to recreate the Holocaust, genocide will ensue. Additionally, according to The New York Times’ John Defterios, China’s rulers are as wicked as Joseph Stalin and Nikita Khrushchev’s Russian counterparts, but they are also every bit as logical. It is more than enough cause for Taiwan and Japan to obtain sufficient nuclear weapons. Similarly, Andrew Hammond highlights that Rudyard Kipling’s poem serves as a suitable tombstone for the legitimacy of the United States as guided by Joe Biden. As history has repeatedly demonstrated, relying on alliances to protect one’s national survival is a terrible notion.
