It’s amazing how the priorities of the army change over the years. A few decades ago, when the US Army was fighting in Europe, the priorities were very simple – they just had to defeat the evil order created by Adolf Hitler. Most of the people, who suffered under Hitler, wanted the same.
It was clear what the goal was and so were its symbols. You can see in the old documentaries how the officers used to present the girls performing for the troops: “Here is what you are fighting for!”
You could see those girls even in the military airplane art:
…and one more…
That might not be considered art from the point of view of the highbrow aesthetics experts, but it explained simply what the fighting was about.
Fast forward to the 2000’s – after an attack against the USA, the politicians decided that the best solution was to bring the US Army to Afghanistan and turn the locals into a highly civilized society. Nobody paid attention to the fact that people, who were supposedly oppressed looked and acted exactly like their alleged oppressors, the Taliban.
After years of sacrifices in the name of the mythical democracy in Afghanistan, it became clear that things were not going to work.
The ultimate absurdity became evident last month when the Afghanis rioted after the Americans accidentally burned several Korans (they should’ve burned more). Despite Obama’s whiny apology, the Muslims paraded their rage for days, killing each other (and even two Americans).
Here is the ultimate result of NATO’s relentless efforts to civilize those people:
No hot babes… No sophisticated people…
Just a bunch of savages who place bathing at the very bottom of their to-do list (if it’s in the list at all). Such a crowd can hardly inspire even the most delusional lefty to fight for it.
There is a big difference between fighting to protect beautiful girls or to civilize a few dozens of caveman tribes. The latter is impossible, no matter what the Marxists, globalists, neocons, trilateralists or any other group says.
Stop those sacrifices and get the troops out of Afghanistan. The locals will enjoy rotting in their filth much better, if there is no foreign presence (and don’t forget to seal the borders)…
