The Deadly Bureaucracy

10 07 2021

For at least a century now, the United States has been the leading superpower; both economically and militarily. Since the Spanish American War, the USA has maintained a strong military presence, with few exceptions, in every theater of war we have fought.

South Vietnamese Marines leap in panic aboard a cutter from an LST in Danang Harbor in Da Nang, Vietnam, April 1, 1975 as they are evacuated from the city, shortly before its fall to the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese…

We occupied the Philippines since 1898, until 1991, and a short few years later were asked to return in light of perceived ChiCom threats in the South China Sea. We still have a major military presence in South Korea, along with Japan (Okinawa) and Germany, where there have been no active military threats for decades.

As the United States walks away from one of the most strategic and hard won military installations ever established, the Taliban ravages the Afghan countryside taking back villages and subjugating people who had experienced a momentary reprieve from raw tyranny, filling the void left by the United States. The schools and infrastructure established with US help, where girls and women were allowed to attend, will be systematically destroyed, and resistance eliminated.

Our cooperators, those Afghan people who aided our forces by providing intelligence, or interpretation, and any ANSF soldiers, trained by, and fighting with the US who resist, or refuse to join the retaking of Kabul, will be killed along with their families. (Terrorists don’t always come directly at you; they threaten your families in order to make you comply.)

This morning I watched an Afghan interpreter who came to the United States after his invaluable service, speak about the failure of American Immigration Bureaucracy. He applied for asylum in 2009, through our embassy in Afghanistan. He was not permitted entrance to America until 2014. He was a true, and dire textbook case for asylum, as his life was in danger. Today there are 2500 Afghan Nationals who allied, worked for, or otherwise assisted the US government over the last 20 years, waiting for an even more ineffective bureaucracy. The Biden administration refuses to allow these people entrance onto American soil until the red tape is all completed. They will most likely be dead by then.

Meanwhile, tens of thousands of unidentified migrants flood across our southern border, among which are human traffickers, drug traffickers, cartel members, and cartel conscripts, along with people from all over the world, in an unmitigated humanitarian disaster, where, not only is bureaucracy ineffective, but ICE, CBP and other DHS and law enforcement field officers are ordered to stand down, are reassigned to provide aid and comfort, or release captured subjects into America with little or no expectation those people will ever see the inside of an immigration office.

None of these migrants, or invaders, have ever done one thing for the American People, United States, or it’s Government.

Our installations in Afghanistan are not only security and economic support for Afghan nationals, but the strategic location and proximity to Iran, Russia, China and Pakistan is highly advantageous in monitoring intelligence and the ability to launch counter or defensive operations in any future conflict involving any of those countries. (The Biden’s cozy relationship and lack of criticism of ChiCom dictator Xi, and American Communist organizations like BLM and Liberty Road, who celebrate Communist China openly, leaves fertile ground for conspiracy theories galore.)

It may take a year or two for Kabul/Bagram to fall, but like other Islamo-fascists as well as Communists, the Taliban are very patient. Obviously, it pays off, especially when dealing with a fickle US Government.

Think. What country or people would ever trust the US government to protect them or adhere to treaties or alliances, when American policies change after every election? (American Tribal Natives were only the first to experience this fickle betrayal.) Why should they? Ask the South Vietnamese about the vacuum left by US forces, after our government promised RVN forces full military hardware support upon our departure and it never came. Defunded. Afghanistan is a landlocked country with no infrastructure or mass transportation. There will be no “boat people”.

Saboor was fortunate. He had US military personnel keeping him secure while he waited for US government bureaucracy to process. 2500 of his fellow countrymen are watching that very security force being ordered to abandon Afghanistan, leaving them at the mercy of two merciless foes:

The Taliban, and the United States Immigration Bureaucracy.

Thank you Kirk for raising the very real issue with inhumane human cost. Just one more on the sea of injustice. A voice here, a cry there is a start. A spark. Thank you.
