 A LOT OF ASSORTED NONSENSE ABOUT AFGHANISTAN FROM ERICMARGOLIS ANALYSIS BY MAJOR AGHA H AMIN (RETIRED)COMMENTS BY MAJOR AGHA H AMIN (RETIRED) IN BOLD BLACK WITHHIGHLIGHTED COLOUR
FACING THE WRITING ON THE WALL IN KABULby Eric Margolis26 May 2012 One of my favorite artists was the superb Victorian painter Lady JaneButler who captured in oil the triumphs and tragedies of the British Empire.Her haunting painting, “The Retreat from Kabul, ” shows the sole
 
survivor of a British army of 16,500, Dr. William Brydon, struggling out of Afghanistan in January, 1842. All the rest were killed by  Afghan tribesmen after a futile attempt to garrison Kabul.
THIS WHOLE ARGUMENT IS B____LL SH___T AND A ROMANTICISED VERSION OF 
 
HISTORY.WHAT REALLY HAPPENED WAS THAT A BRIGADE SIZE MUCH FAMISHEDCOLUMN OF 700 BRITISH TROOPS FROM HM 44 FOOT AND SOME 4500 NATIVE INDIAN TROOPS RETREATING FROM KABUL TO JALALABAD IN HEAVY SNOWFALL WAS HARASSED AND DESTROYED BY MORE THAN 30,000 AFGHANS.THE STORY DID NOT END HERE.BRITISH COMMANDERS NOTT AND POLLOCK ON THEIR OWN JUDGEMENT RECAPTURED KABUL AFTER THIS INCIDENT , BURNT IT AND WITHDREW IN GOOD
 
MILITARY ORDER BACK TO INDIA.A DOCILE AND BRITISH VASSAL KING DOST MOHAMMAD KHAN WAS PLACED ON THE THRONE IN KABUL.THIS KING COOPERATEDWITH BRITISH IN 1857 INDIAN REBELLION AT A LOW COST OF 13 LAKHS PER YEAR .AFGHANISTAN BECAME A BRITISH VASSAL IN FOREIGN POLICY TILL 1919 AND AGREED TO ONLY HAVE A BRITISH EMBASSY IN KABUL.ALL AT A LOW COST OF 13LAKHS PER YEAR .MY DETAILED ARGUMENTS TO TRASH THIS B____LL SH___T THEORY OGRAVEYARD OF EMPIRES IS APPENDED AT THE END OF THIS REJOINDER 
This gripping painting should have hung over the NATO summit meeting last week in Chicago to remind the US and its allies that Afghanistanremains “the graveyard of empires.” 
THIS IS NOT ABOUT GRAVEYARD OF EMPIRES.AFGHANISTAN WAS NEVER AGRAVEYARD OF EMPIRES.IN MID SIXTEENTH CENTURY IT HAD A MUGHAL HINDU GOVERNOR WHOSE ONLY WEAPON WAS A WALKING STEP.TILL 1747 AFGHANISTAN WAS RULED BY VARIOUS TURKIC TRIBES OR PARTLY BY MUGHAL INDIA ANDSAFFAVID IRAN.
The latest empire to try to conquer Afghanistan has failed, and is now sounding the retreat.
THE LATEST INVASION IS A GEOPOLITICAL STRATEGIC MANOEUVRE THAT THE NATO LED BY US HAS LAUNCHED TO DOMINATE THE STRATEGIC HEARTLAND OF WEST  ASIA.NATURALLY THE ANTI US INSURGENTS ARE GETTING AID FROM PAKISTAN ,
 
CHINA , RUSSIA AND MANY NON STATE MUSLIM PHILANTHROPIST 
 
BILLIONAIRES.NORTH AFGHANISTAN BY AND LARGE SEES NATO AS A SAVIOUR FROM TALIBAN WHO REGARD TAJIKS , UZBEKS,BALOCH , SHIAS,ISMAILIS,EDUCATEDPASHTUNS AS INFIDELS AND WOULD MASSACRE THEM 
 All the hot air in Chicago about “transition,” Afghan self-reliance,and growing security could not conceal the truth that the mighty USand its dragooned western allies have been beaten in Afghanistan by abunch of mountain warriors from the 12th Century.
THE US FAILURE HAS BEEN TO PLAN A PHASE THREE AND THIS NEEDS A DYNAMIC PLAN. COMPLETE WITHDRAWAL FROM AFGHANISTAN IS NOT THE RIGHT SOLUTION SEE THE ANALYSIS BELOW FOR OPTIONS 
 
The objective of war is to achieve political goals, not kill people.The US goal was to turn Afghanistan into a protectorate providing bases close to Caspian Basin oil, and to block China. After aneleven-year war costing $1 trillion, this effort failed – meaning amilitary and political defeat.
THERE NEVER WAS ANY MORALITY IN STRATEGY AND GEOPOLITICS.SO THE US OBJECTIVE OF WAR IS LOGICAL . MORAL OR IMMORAL . THAT IS SENTIMENTAL B__LSH____T.MORALITY NEVER EXISTED IN WORLD HISTORY.BE IT ANY RACE OR RELIGION 
The US dragged NATO into a war in which it had no business and lacked any popular support. The result: a serious weakening of the NATOalliance, raising questions about whose interests it really serves.The defeat in Afghanistan will undermine US domination of WesternEurope.Claims made in Chicago that the US-installed Afghan regime will stand on its own with $4 billion of aid from the west were pie in the sky.Once US support ends, the Karzai regime is unlikely to survive muchlonger than did Najibullah’s Afghan Communist regime in Kabul after its Soviet sponsor withdrew in 1989. Or the US-run South Vietnameseregime that fell in 1975.
THE THREE STATE SOLUTION IN AFGHANISTAN WITH NATO IN AERIAL SUPPORT CAN CHECK THE TALIBAN.THE ENGLISH EAST INDIA COMPANY DID IT WITH ONLY 13 LAKH RUPEES IN 1857 ! THE AFGHAN KING DOST MOHAMMAD KHAN WAS SUCH A DISGRACE THAT HE GOT HIS SON WAZEER AKBAR KHAN THE AFGHAN HERO OF FIRST AFGHAN WAR POISONED BECAUSE WAZEER AKBAR KHAN WAS ANTI BRITISH AND THUS ATHREAT TO DOST MOHAMMADS 13 LAKHS PER YEAR ALLOWANCE TO ACT AS THE ENGLISH EAST INDIA COMPANYS STRATEGIC P____MP IN AFGHANISTAN FOR POISONING OF WAZEER AKBAR KHAN SEE QASIM RESHTIAS BOOK
