The Soviet War in Afghanistan
I'm a little upset folks, but instead of crying like a baby, I decided to find the root of the problem, and rage against that. Who knows. It's a long shot, but perhaps it will make a difference if the right person reads this one day.
In the past, I have studied The Soviet War in Afghanistan, and I recently took an interest in it again, and I am thinking, if the Russians won their war, 9/11 and the wars that the U.S. were apart of that followed would have never happened if the Russians were left alone to do the job the U.S. had to do years later.
I understand why the U.S. helped the Afghans - They were looking for payback because the Soviet Union helped the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War. I get that, and I understand that, but that right there is why pride can be deadly because I have no doubt the Russians could have won their war against the Afghans if the U.S. didn't give weapons, (among other things) to the Afghans and we ended up shooting ourselves in the foot for it later. Now today, we suffer.
The Soviet Union, along with the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan were trying to make a better world for the Afghans by changing with the times, making things equal for everyone, bringing education to all of the people who desired it, and were looking stopping poverty. But the Muslim fanatics were against that because all of those ideas were against their religion. They felt Allah has decided how everything is suppose to be, and to change things was a sin against him. So instead of just living their way, and letting others live their way, those Muslim fanatics ended up terrorizing people who were looking for a change in their lives, and Bin Laden ended up getting all his training from the U.S.A. and he used those skills to kill people on 9/11, which caused my country, the United States of America, to go to war with him, and not only him, but Iraq as well, which cost us lots of money. Well, people like me, not the rich people who started the wars.
Just another example of a stupid religion messing up the world. It's amazing the power that a fairy tale can have. No one has ever seen or heard God, yet they will gladly kill & do other messed up stuff over a being they can't prove exists. I'm an American, but my country shouldn't haved help those terrorist rebels in the 1980's because we ended up paying for it on 9/11, and paid for a lot more.
I truly believe my life, and everyone else's lives would be ten times better if the Russians won. I also don't think communism is nearly as bad as what the American media has made it out to be. I'd like to live an Atheist country. Maybe there'd be less violence. I'd also like free health care. Most of the hate or misunderstanding, of communism and socialism, stems from the era of the Cold War when Americans for decades were brainwashed against these ideas in all forms of media. Movies, books, newspapers, the radio, songs, television shows, (including children's shows) and even a record that was voiced by then actor Ronald Regan containing anti communist/socialist ideas were all forced onto Americans.
It's all about power and control though. Our leaders know they can use the God angle to keep people in line, and at the end of the day, they don't give a crap about you. We're just slaves. Granted, things could be a lot worst, but they could be a heck of a lot better too.
Gorbachev begged the U.S.A. not to arm the mujahideen because they were Islamist fanatics, but the U.S ignored him. Afghanistan might have been under Russian control today if Russia won, but I think it would be a dang better sight than it is now in my view with the way women and children are treated. AND there would have been no 9/11, no money issues going on in the United States of America because of the wars, and all this other nonsense that was later caused because of Bin Laden.
To go back to what I typed earlier about how the U.S.A. trained Bin Laden and Bin Laden ended up using what he was taught to attack the United States of America on 9/11. - Well, today, children in the United States of America are not getting the education they are entitled to get, Americans are losing their jobs left and right, my hours at my job stink, I won't even be working this summer, and that's because of the economy.....well, what economy?..... too many U.S. troops have died....and more is going on in the U.S.A. and it's all because of Bin Laden - A man my own country trained. Our troops going after this man was very pricy. Well, pricy for us, not the rich people who started these conflicts.
Now I totally supported the hunt for Bin Laden for what he did, and I am glad he is dead, but what if 9/11 happened? What if another country was willing to do all the work? Well, the U.S. had that chance in the 1980's, but because of the country's issues with needing to be Superman all the time, they ended up screwing over the rest of us. The truth is, the Russians stopped being our enemies because they are too busy pointing their fingers at us and laughing! The U.S.A. got a giant wad of karma spit right on us for getting in the Russians way. Because of that, that raise you needed won't be happening for a long time, if ever!
If the Russians won - 9/11, the wars that the U.S. were apart of that followed, and all this other nonsense would have never happened if the Russians were left alone to do the job the U.S. took over to do years later. But it's all about power, control, and the all mighty dollar. It was like the U.S. and Russia were feuding over who got to invade the Middle East like how in prison, the Aryan Brotherhood and the Black Guerilla Family feud in the prison yard over who is going to rape the new sissy inmate.
The Russians were all atheists, and they were going to war with a bunch of religious fanatics who desired for the whole world to be like them, and were willing to kill (and did kill, and will kill) plenty of people for it. And the Russians were the first ones (in modern times anyhow) who were willing to get rid of these guys and planned to destory all that Allah garbage!
I read that the Russian troops use to rape and kill the women, and take the babies and throw them into fires because they didn't need to deal with another generation in the future. The Russians also use to poison the wells in Afghanistan, blown up the mosques, and run over Afghan civilians in tanks. Now that is some disturbing stuff, but sometimes, it's needed to win a war, and keep in mind - The Taliban would gladly do the same things to anyone else who is against their views if they were given a chance.
During the U.S.'s war with the Taliban, American troops deliberately avoided any civilian attacks, refused to attack any mosques - even when the Taliban would hide in them - and made it point to drop ethnically correct food supplies to help feed the Afghans who were being hurt by the fighting. No wonder it took the troops so long to find Bin Laden. If you would like to win a war against a bunch of savages, you have to be more cruel then they are, and because we're such a nice little country, it took over ten years, a lot of money, and more importantly - a WHOLE lot of dead American troops to get this job done when it could have been done a lot sooner if the U.S. troops would have went in there and made at least a half-butt effort to make General Sherman proud!
I am a proud American, but the one thing I really dislike about this country is we have a very bad habit of meddling in the affairs of other countries. Will we ever learn our lesson and stop trying to be a "super hero" all the time?
