Counterinsurgency takes centuries, especially when it's Afghanistan. It has been called the "graveyard of empires" because all empires that settled there had to leave
@Nadim171 the Greeks never left, they are still there. The Mongols invaded and stayed there. Afganistan has traded hands between various empires for thousands of years. The graveyard of empires is more if a romantic myth. Truth is there is nothing worth much in India but it's on the way to rich lands. All any empire who truly wished to hold onto Afganistan had to do was kill enough of the population until resistance ended.
Truth is there is nothing worth much in *Afganistan* but it's on the way to rich lands. All any empire who truly wished to hold onto Afganistan had to do was kill enough of the population until resistance ended.
Well, the Greek empire fell soon to that, Alexander's mother sent him a letter asking why it took him so long in Afghanistan since he was fighting primitive way weaker armies, he sent her some dust from the ground and told her to put it around the palace. When some men came to the palace one said you enter first, the second said no you enter fist, the third said, no you first I insist. And the 3 men killed each other. Alexander said:"you see? Then the sand here is aggressive"
the place is a terrible location to live in. makes people want to kill each other. Makes sense.

Charles Lindberg was a Hitler loving outspoken Fascist,...
@Waffles731 He was an isolationist for sure, and he was anti-war. He also tried to limit the power of private finance over our country. I can assure you he was pro-democracy, but also a nationalist, at time where American nationalism wasn't associated with war mongering and foreign intervention. He also urged Britain, as well as france to be prepared for a Nazi invasion, and advocated that they avoid a war at all costs. He thought that they could avoid a war and defend themselves while Nazi Germany and the USSR entered warfare.You may be referring to Lindbergh's involvement in the Eugenics movement which was popular during his lifetime. Although Eugenics was integral to Nazi Germany's political agenda, it is unfair to call Lindbergh a "Hitler" lover. He certainly did admire some of Nazi Germany's economic and social policies.As far as fascism goes, its not intrinsically negative or evil. also it manifests differently depending on the nation in which it arises. I do appreciate that you at least know who he is, although we disagree on his character and intentions.
fyi.does anyone know the difference bwteen 7, and 2. 7. 2. someone with the name s6620 said someone had 7 accounts. the number is 2. 7. 2. 7. 2. an influencer (let's called them "influencers", with inverted commas), said someone had 7 accounts. the influencer was wrong by 5. 7 is not 2. 2 is 2. they are different numbers.but they gave the information of 7. they gave wrong information. one of the "influencers" gave wrong information. can you imagine that?apparently they are then shitting all over the site blocking people, and saying thank you!!! (did I use enough !'s) to anyone who agrees with them. presumably because they are an "influencer" and want their posts associated with them, they put up mytakes which don't allow anon. this means they can block anything which they don't agree with.do we expect this behaviour from "influencers"? yes... we do.
older than some soldiers will get to be x.
They should have picked a different job then to be bluntly honest if that was a big problem to them
Don’t try to elicit emotions from me like that. It’s not going to go well.
I wouldn't bother with you much
Then don’t respond to me anymore
some people are worth calling twats
Got that off your chest then? Yeah? Good :) now this twat wants to say bye bye 👋 to the emotionally manipulative, thin skinned little twerp. Blocked and reported.
Just block him there is an entire mytake on him and how he harasses people
Already did lol and reported him for such
He wasn't as Roy died in the 80s and the war started in 00s.
Not all conflicts are approved by congress. A good deal of those started in the late 70's..
