The US is leaving Afghanistan, spending about two trillion dollars on the "democratization" of the country. On the Internet, they are joking that with this money it would be possible to build a decent house for every Afghan, buy a car, several heads of cattle, and train all the Taliban in Oxford, Harvard and Massachusetts.
Only the Taliban themselves (the Taliban are a terrorist organization banned in Russia) do not need either one or the other or the third. They need to be left alone - in that Muslim Middle Ages, where they slept for centuries, where women are stoned for treason, men are cut off their throats and hands for “wrong” faith, where pedophilia, bestiality and sodomy are widespread. And the most serious sector of the economy is the production and sale of drugs to the wrong "infidels".
About 140 billion dollars were invested by the Americans in various programs in the country - from educational to training of law enforcement forces, from building all kinds of infrastructure facilities to supporting the emerging "democracy". And now it turns out that all this money was thrown down the drain.
With the departure of khaki investors, the country is before our eyes returning to the dark Middle Ages with its animal morals and bloody traditions (Sultan Erdogan's Afghan intrigue). "Retrained" and armed to the teeth, the army and police scatter at the speed of a doe or surrender to the Taliban in regiments and brigades. "Democratic institutions" are taking shape like houses of cards, and helluva lot of smart and "democratized" people are mercilessly beaten with sticks in the squares.
Back in 2003, the head of the Pentagon, Donald Rumsfeld, arrived in Kabul and cheerfully declared that "the combat part of the operation has been fully and successfully completed." However, the losses of the Yankees began to grow every week, and four years later the number of American troops in Afghanistan had grown to fifty thousand against the original twenty.
Marshall Plan in Afghan
It seemed to the Americans then that they quickly won a military victory, taking full control over the country. However, they did not know what to do next with this defeated country. And by inertia, they followed approximately the same path that the Soviet Union and Great Britain had already "descended" before them.
The "Kremlin elders" wanted to build an Asian model of socialism there. Americans are democracy. The result is known.
Barack Obama, taking into account the experience of his predecessors, vowed to "get involved in building a nation." Then this slogan was picked up by Donald Trump. But it was under Obama that the number of American troops in the "enchanted region" of humanity reached a record high of 100 soldiers. And the brightest American political strategists were mobilized to build a new nation.
For comparison: the global - for the whole of Western Europe, the post-war "Marshall plan" cost America less. However, with the help of this plan, Europe rose from the ruins. And in Afghanistan, billions have been plundered by the greedy and corrupt elite.
The infamous multi-million dollar "industrial park" near Kandahar has remained on paper. The Afghan GOELRO, a global project for the electrification of the country, has failed miserably. Afghans did not even want to maintain greenhouses built by the Americans.
The biggest absurdity was the attempt to build a "democratic state" headed by a popularly elected president, and the attempt to create a strong centralized government in a multi-tribal country.
As a result, the "braces" of medieval obscurantism closed their jaws over all the attributes of the XNUMXst century that the American occupation brought with it. And this obscurantism, according to all the laws of social entropy, will surely spill out beyond the borders of Afghanistan, threatening the relative stability of the nearby regions.
Forward to the past?
So why do these or those nations and peoples so quickly and easily leave the road of civilization and progress immediately after the change of the regime or the termination of the next project of external supervision?
Isn't it time to honestly admit (at least to oneself) that there are nations and peoples in the XNUMXst century, to whom neither money, nor lessons of democracy, nor gifts in the form of infrastructure facilities will ever be used for the future. It's just that the time has not come for them to "grow up" yet. And, most likely, it will never come - as for the Amazon tribes. They already feel good.
And now the main question of the day - what to do with our die-hard "medieval" neighbors?
Introduce new peacekeeping contingents and continue the war with the Taliban all over the world?
Tackle the final solution of the "Afghan issue" by killing several million more Afghans?
Or build a wall like the Mexican one in the south of the United States on the XNUMX-kilometer border with Afghanistan?
These issues need to be tackled comprehensively, and the entire international community, bordering on the "black hole" of humanity called Afghanistan. Of course, the process of “exporting the Middle Ages” should be stopped as much as possible.
It is critically necessary to strengthen the borders by joint efforts, to hang a padlock on them. In solving this difficult issue, it is necessary to “zero out” as much as possible all the inevitable speculations on this topic by all Central Asian elites. And they will do everything possible to participate in the process as little as possible and “squeeze out” preferences from neighbors as much as possible. This is the essence of the East.
Further, it is necessary to decide in principle what to do with the colossal flow of refugees from the zone of "Islamic turbulence". It is necessary to clearly understand that some of these refugees are exactly the same religious fanatics as their persecutors. It's just that the stronger adherents of the Islamic Middle Ages killed and drove out the weaker ones.
The most optimal is the process of their resettlement along the border with their own historical homeland. Refugee men should be recruited en masse to the border service.
Well aware and assessing the danger of their yesterday's enemies, they will jealously guard their new homes. It is possible to attract to service at the borders of the units of the Chechen military police, who have proven themselves well during the peacekeeping operation in Syria.
So isn't it time, finally, to declare a real war on local drug dealers who previously supplied the "white death" to the north in tons?
With this traditional branch of the Afghan economy, an uncompromising war must be waged until it is completely destroyed.
There will be no more money
It is also necessary to zero all investment and economic projects in Afghanistan as much as possible. Not a penny in the Middle Ages zone.
Why pump money there, which will inevitably be plundered by the greedy local elite?
Why build schools with the wind within the walls?
Build greenhouses that will serve as corrals for donkeys, sheep and goats?
Raise factories and hydroelectric power plants, where there will be no one to work?
The answers to all these questions are obvious.
Is it worth starting the Great Silk Road through this territory?
And this question is more likely to China - it is the main beneficiary of the project. Maybe it's not worth it anymore?
So is it worth, in general, building further relations with the Taliban, is there any reason for this?
What constructive can they offer their geopolitical neighbors and humanity in general, besides the export of obscurantism?
And this is only the first set of questions to which fundamental answers must be given to all participants in the settlement process - voluntary and involuntary.
So far, only one thing is self-evident: the Islamic Middle Ages are hopeless from the point of view of exporting all the achievements of civilization and progress to its territory. And no less dangerous from the point of view of the counter export of cave manners, obscurantism and social turbulence. And we have to do something about it.
