Trump’s Afghan War for “miniskirts”

Trump’s Afghan War for “miniskirts”

News has emerged of the nature of Donald Trump’s long meeting with Defence Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, in which Trump discussed with his top Generals, the efficacy of a troop surge in Afghanistan.

According to the Washington Post , one of the decisive factors in swaying Trump towards agreeing to a troop surge was when General McMaster showed the US President a photo of women walking down the streets of Kabul in the 1970s. The women who would at that time have been living in The Republic of Afghanistan, a secular state, were showed wearing what the Washington Post describes as “miniskirts” while their hair and faces were fully exposed.

The following is believed to be the photo McMaster used in his ultimately successful attempt to persuade Trump of the virtues of war. The photo has been circulating on the internet for several years as an example of Afghanistan’s more secular outlook prior to 1992 when an Islamic Republic was declared.

This incident bears a frightening coloration to the time when it was said Ivanka Trump, the President’s daughter, cried in front of her father when viewing footage of the almost certainly staged chemical attack in Idlib, Syria in April of 2016. Ivanka’s tears were said to be the motivating factor in persuading Donald Trump to bomb Syria on the 6th of April. The story was corroborated by Ivanka’s brother Eric. 

These stories would indicate that Donald Trump’s military decision making process as America’s Commander-in-Chef is widely predicated on emotion’s. it is a dangerous precedent that does not bode well for geo-political stability.

Making matters worse, it is one thing for a man’s daughter to unconsciously tug at her father’s emotional heartstrings, but for a grown man, a seasoned US General and a National Security Advisor to engage in similar behaviour is not only unacceptable but unconscionable. It is a manipulation tactic used against a man who is clearly easily emotionally manipulated.

The role of a National Security Advisor is to offer clear, objective and realistic advice on what moves constitute the best interests of a nation and its people. McMaster clearly sold a President who clearly has an emotional attachment to secularism, a war based on the totally unrealistic goal of changing the character of Afghanistan through bombardment and conflict.

Ironically, in Syria, women do dress in skirts with their hair and faces in full view. The Syrian Arab Republic is a secular, Ba’athist state, one that Donald Trump bombed in a move which implicitly favours jihadist forces who are the opposite of secular and pro-woman.

It seems that Donald Trump is not only a leader guided by emotions but that his emotions don’t always correspond to the facts on the ground.

While legally, the President is ultimately responsible for his final decision, H.R. McMaster apparently conducted himself in a manner that is not fitting of the serious nature of his role.

And another. But if like bush the III, you wanna go looking up skirts….

“…The so-called “exceptional nation” – the one that never tires
of proclaiming its lofty democratic virtues to the rest of the world –
has degenerated into a military-corporatist state. Trump’s betrayal is
complete and stands out as one of the biggest cons in modern political
history.”

Your last sentence is sure saying a lot given the con the US put up with the previous eight years!

I think it’s called “bait and switch”. The “club” that George Carlin spoke of, and that the US people are not part of, has become a master at this tactic of “societal control” with regards to elections.

The other tactic is to make the people fight each other like chickens, while they, the “roosters” rule over all.

This is really deadly ridiculous. With this Trumpus surge we will have “miniskirts in coffins”. More will die for the ego of the “Borg Collective”, aka US/EU/NATO gang.

You haven’t even seen the whole package yet. Mr. Dumb is just warming up. But it is not all bad. Imagine horrors if Mr. Dumb didn’t win. Alt rightards would be like, if Mr. Dumb won then this that and the other thing. Although many of them in Usadistia will not admit what is going on some are having chance of recovering, partially at least.

Nazis, Taliban, Al Qaida, ISIS you name it the US will train them and fund them even create them (white helmets?) to fight against socialist socially secular governments (after all they’re all commies!). Such governments who would wish to control their own resources and make their own decisions to benefit their people. Russia (well they’re still commies pretending to be capitalists), Cuba and North Korea (absolutely crazed commies). Of course it’s nothing to do with the imperialist’s belief (a mantel now donned by the US) that they have a god given right to take by force what ever they want.… Read more »

The US government consists of an idiot dauphin under the control of a junta of generals who, in turn, serve the war industry and Zionists. Only possibility of US population waking up will be if Americans start coming home in body bags at the rate of several hundred a week. Unless that threshold is reached, Americans will sleep until their doom at the hand of our own “government.”

Again, you are unfortunately correct. It’s incredible how this servile mentality has developed in the US.

My disgust meter is off the scale but I cannot find any words to adequately describe this charade for a decision-making govt. I do not agree at all with mcmaster (read patraeus) but I at least thought he was a mature adult-I was wrong.

As I’ve said before, the whole “miniskirt” story is total BS. It’s intended to make Trump’s decisions “human centered”, rather than being all about the MONEY for the military-industrial complex, the MONEY the US might extract from Afghanistan’s mineral wealth, and the ego (on both McMaster and Trump’s part) to not want to admit the US has failed in Afghanistan.

It’s a story for public consumption and never happened.

Actually that photo was taken in the 1970s when Afghanistan was under a progressive socialist government which had given women full and equal rights. America preferred Islamic radicals, however, and backed the Mujahideen which brought them down.
