Afghanistan: Chance for a Positive Reorientation

Helga Zepp-LaRouche delivered a thoroughly composed analysis of how the world has changed since August 15, 2021, when the Taliban marched into Kabul, and the U.S. and NATO left. “A whole system is coming to an end. The policy has failed.” All the lives lost, the chaos in the country, and the money spent—and stolen—served the interests of a greedy elite, but benefited no one else.

She reported on the prescience demonstrated by participants at the Schiller Institute conference on July 31, and then the solutions presented in the follow-up conference on August 21. The solution begins with a rejection of neoliberalism and imperial geopolitics. Biden’s rejection of the demand by Boris Johnson and the Europeans that the U.S. remain in Afghanistan longer has provoked hysteria among the war hawks responsible for the catastrophe, typified by Tony Blair.

It is now up to the Americans and the Europeans to join with Afghanistan’s neighbors to forge a durable peace, based on economic development. This means the West must junk the delusion that the “Rules-Based Order” must be accepted by all nations.

    Afghanistan’s population is 40 million, not 30 million.

    MSM Loves Chaos for Afghanistan. Makes for Good Nightly News Footage. Expect Kalishnikov Rattling 5-person Police Cars to be featured for 9 more months.

    One Rebellion Scenario. An Afghanistan ANC arises, who are willing to carry out a ’Self Sacrifice Event, to get World Public Opinion against the Taliban.

    Who wants to idly speculate?

    NBC Nightly News says Taliban is in power ‘For Now’.

    I do feel there is another shoe to drop. Perhaps within 48 months.

    China and Taliban cooperating on Terrorism, may mean they will Export it, causing a Power Vacuum within Afghanistan.

    Taliban are Sunnis. But PNAC surprisingly turned Regimes like Iraq, Syria into Shiite Governments. Will International Cabal allow a Sunni Government to remain in Afghanistan?
