The Old Vietnam Shuffle

Vietnam revisited…America is once again caught between abdication and overextension. In the process the ‘Good O’l U.S.A.’ Is bogged down in self-hatred and heading towards abdication.

Its leaders repeating the same mantras they chanted over the last days of the morally bankrupt South Vietnam regime suggesting Kabul slow down the Taliban’s momentum?

That’s not going to happen, Uncle Sam has backed the wrong horse once again and is finding their material superiority largely irrelevant.

Like defunct South Vietnam, Afghanistan is no thriving democracy nor does it want to be one.

Rather it’s a tribal hotchpotch of enclaves and villages loyal to family, clan, and tribe, and the next strongman capable of imposing a balance of power within Afghanistan’s borders.

For America’s sake next time they unleash the ‘Dogs of War’ its political and military leaders should have a clear understanding of the nature of the threat it will be facing and of the objectives, it can realistically achieve.

“Israel beware of fragile allies and superpower incompetence”.

Otherwise, you might be next!

Yosef Yigal Drever

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
