Russia and China who play political games with the lives of Afghanistan civilians and U.S military personnel are quite content for Americans to lose their lives. Thus ensuring they can sell their products into the markets of the Western World which are able to operate with the current level of terrorism.
President Trump and Nikki Haley are one hundred percent correct. The United Nations needs urgent reform. It is not right that the security of the World should be ensured by the deaths of American Soldiers in the area where terrorism is centred.
However, President Trump also needs to appreciate that the Taliban are not going to be defeated. The Taliban do not want ISIS in Afghanistan nor I believe do Al Qaeda.
Ayman Al Zawahiri of Al Qaeda has made a public pronunciation that the deaths of women and children should be avoided wherever possible.
ISIS have never made that statement. Therefore, we need to engage both the Taliban and Al Qaeda in dialogue from a position of legal military strength.
We must also stop supporting corrupt Governments and Organisations.
We need a Philosophy to counter that of ISIS – mine has been totally and deliberately ignored by the U.K Government and U.K Media.
ISIS cannot continue to be allowed to use murder as proof of their followers allegiance to them and God.
I look to President Trump for leadership and direction in the defeat of ISIS because from the U.K Government there no positive action or policies to defeat the rapid growth of ‘National Terrorism’.
In my opinion the actions of the the U.K Government and its security forces are a security liability to the rest of the World. The actions of the U.K Government and the inaction of its Security Forces to ensure the law is enforced to everybody equally in the U.K. only serve to produce more radicalism.
I can foresee a time where the travel of U.K Citizens will be restricted due to more severe visa requirements – particularly to Europe and the U.S.A. This will affect U.K Business and Government.
In summary until there is a world combined legal military response independent of National vested interests ( which is U.N reform) a legal combined security system with border control including in the E.U and a philosophical response to ISIS misuse of the ‘Word of God’ then America has no option but to remain in Afghanistan.
