The communist party coup took place in Kabul on April 28, 1978

Afghanistan is a beautiful country, and only a few decades ago, people in Kabul were singing and dancing to live music and had fun. Kabul was probably much better than European countries. So, what in the world went wrong in Afghanistan?

Afghanistan had cinemas, restaurants and hotels, and people who lived in Kabul four decades ago describes it as romantic and better than Europe. They have high mountains and the weather is often sunny. It`s one of the best countries in Asia.

But something happened. Someone took the country.

In the 1960`s the King and the Queen opened up the country to the world after centuries of isolation. They also enabled women to partisipate in public life. They became feminists without even knowing what it was all about.

In 1964, according to the constitution, women also got the right to wote. Everything was fine and there was no segregation between men and women. Kabul was a modern city. People were dressed like Western people. They were listening to Western music and thought the Western style was the right thing for them.

People were poor but very happy, but then a lot of tourists came in to Kabul. And suddenly, it was time for a «hippy» era. Just like the West. Hippy music. Hippy fitness. A hippy style society. Tourists went to historical places to see Buddah.

But then, something happened.

A Western-style protest movement started in Afghanistan. Students began talking about Revolution. They talked about Communism and women`s rights. They said it should be more equality between men and women. Nor should it be discrimination.

Kabul became more and more like the Western world, but some people didn`t like that. And that was people in Pedesaan were 80 percent of the population live. Afghanistan had a conflict going on.

Pedesaan was way ahead of the modern city Kabul, and people didn`t like the changes. People in Pedesaan was more conservative and people were following tribal traditions and the teachings of Islam.

Women were isolated and could be forced to mirrage with someone they didn`t love. The Muslims were worried about the progress in Kabul. The problem at that time is that people were sleeping. They didn`t see the real problem. And the problem was their own «class difference.»

In the early 70`s, the first Islamic organisation was founded. Their goal was to protect their traditional lifestyle. It was the birth of the political Islamism in Afghanistan. This is the era were people in Afghanistan became divided in two groups.

Left and Right.

Communists on the left side, and Islamists on the right side.

The Islamist movement were blaming Communists, and Communists were blaming Islamists and the problems escalated. No one were able to guide the people and a blamegame started istead of keeping the great value of national unity among the people.

To everybody`s surprise; the communists managed to take power. First in 1973. It was a coup and they overthrow the monarchy. And now, the country became a republic with its first ever president.

Mohammed Daoud Khan became a President of Afghanistan from 1973 to 1978. Mohammed was a cusine of the former King, but in 1978, the communists desided that their time has come and seized power for themselves.

In just one night, they killed Daoud Khan and 23 members of his family. The communists called the bloody take over «april revolution.» (this is the same mindset as the Leninist communist in Soviet when they killed the Romanov family in their communist revolution).

The communist party coup took place in Kabul on April 28, 1978.

The new government tried to form the country into a new communist country thru radical reforms. People in Kabul had red flags and the communists took all oppositions. The communists first target were Muslims. (this is similar to the CCP today).

The communists arrested you if you were praying. You would also go to jail. This time was the most brutal time of the history of the country. Thousands of people was taken and all of the disappeared.

The communists took teachers that talked about religion. Many of them were dropped by a plane. Isamic activists started to build activist groups in 1979 and one of them was a group called Mujahideen (fighters of the holy was).

This revolution is an Islamic revolution, Islamist Party Leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar said. Their goal was to establish a pure Islamic system in Afghanistan. Freedom and liberation of Afghanistan.

In Moscow, former Second Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Leonid Brezhnev was worried. Afghanistan was a nabouring communist state, and a successful Islamic revolution could send a dangerous message to the 50 million Muslims in the USSR.

Brezhnev dicided to send in troops in December 27, 1979. and that was the beginning of a long and expensive war that led to bankruptsy.

10,000 prisoners were released in one day. For some it was hard to find back to their own family members. Afghanistan was under forign occupation.

Afghanistan changed like never before. People were leaving because it was not their country anymore. Others were chanting «allahu akbar» at night, and thousands were protesting on the streets.

The Communists in Soviet Union supported the brutal communist regime in Afghanistan and that wasn`t music for the people. The resistance among the people were growing and they distrubuted papers at night and wrote on the walls; Long live Islam.

In the United States, they were quick to react to the Soviet offensive.

Afghanistan became the new epicenter of the Cold War.

US President Jimmy Carter said in a speech that the Soviet invation was an extremely threat to peace. Carter also said that Soviet now can control much of the world`s oil supply.

Washington started to support Mujahideen with money and weapons.

US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brezezinski appeared to Afghanistan`s religion pride in 1980 when he visited Pakistan. One day, he said, you will take your country back because God is on your side.

The communists had big problems to fight back against the Mujahideen guerillas. The only place the communist had control was in Kabul. The communist government said no to women education. No freedom for women. So, women was used as a political tool. But people didn`t like it at all.

The Mujahdin used terrorist attacks in Kabul to destabilise the society. It was too dangerous to be there, so 3 million went to Pakistan or Iran to join their Muslim brothers. Peshawar near Islamabad in Pakistan became a hotspot of resistance.

They got the weapons they needed in Pakistan. And a Sudi also set up a camp there. His name was Osama Bin Laden. He recruited and supported all foriegn fighters from all over the Arab world to join the Afghan jihad. Radical Islam spread in the refugee camp. They started to brainwash the children and they are the one who became Taliban.

The countries that were involved trained conservative people and made monsters to get rid of the USSR. But the biggest problems was to know who the civilians and who the enemies was.

The war in Afghanistan was very expensive for the USSR, and in 1986, Mikhail Gorbachev desiced to withraw his troops. He said; «Counterrevolution and imperialism have turned Afghanistan into a bleeding wound.

We should like, in the nearest future, to withdraw the Soviet troops stationed in Afghanistan.» They took the troops out of Afghanistan in 1989.

People in Afghanistan were so happy. Finally, the USSR are going back home. And the people was feeling free. They won the war.

But, a lot of things happened. It wasn`t over.

The communist government still had control over Kabul, and was the final obstacle to become an Islamic republic. In other words; the war was not yet over. On April 24, 1992, The Mujahideen took control over Kabul.

It was a critical moment were the Mujahideen took over the presidential palace. The dream to become an independent Isamist state was on the way to be fulfilled. But instead, other groups of people started to fight against each other to take back the control. A new civil war started. Everybody was fighting against everybody.

Instead of confronting each other, they used civil women and child as tools in a brutal war. The fighters could have killed each other but they killed civilans instead.

Now, Kabul was stigmatized. Isolated from the rest of the world. Deserted by Westerners. The British embassy was closed. The US embassy was closed. The French embassy was also closed.

«My feeling is that the UN and the Western powers were interested in Afghanistan as long as we fought against the USSR. Against communism. It was a common enemy. Then their interest completely disappeared. They abandoned us,» Mujahideen Commander Ahmad Shah Massoud said back then.

Many different groups of people were fighting against each other but nobody knew why they were fighting. It`s between commanders they said. They attacked civilians and especially woman. They raped them and cut of their breasts.

In 1994, a new force emerged; The Taliban. An Arabic name for «students.» many of them came from Quran-schools. The Taliban promised to restore peace, order and morality. They had massive support from Pakistan. Many of them were grown up in refugee camps in Pakistan.

When Taliban came, they were welcomed by the people in Afghanistan. Finally, someone who wants to restore peace, order and morality. People thought that Taliban will take over the country and everything will be fine again. People supported them.

The Taliban took Kabul on September 27, 1996.

The Taliban changed Afghanistan repidly. The banned alcohol, films and all forms for entertainment. They smashed all Televisions on the streets. The Taliban ended the civil war and made peace.

But, they also took people`s freedom. What is peace without freedom?

Women suffered the most. They were fobidden to study or work. Girls were banned from school. They closed all the schools after the Islamic revolution. It was very sad for the kids, because the couldn`t learn to read and write.

The Taliban send people to the mosque and ban people from going out because these all are Islamic laws. They hunted all the women in Afghanistan. Why are you doing this? Why are you doing that? And so on. If someone say it is extremist, so be it, Taliban said.

Afghanistan became a hotpad for Islamic fundamentalism and it was under the Taliban protection that Osama Bin Laden returned to the country after a long war against the USSR. Osama Bin Laden founded the terrorist network Al-Qaeda to carry out a global jihad.

One of the attacks is said to be September 11. President Bush started a new war in Afghanistan. A few weeks after the attack on twin towers, the British and US soldiers attacked Al Quada leaders and their training camps.

The end of the Taliban regime ended on November 13, 2001.

People in Afghanistan was happy. Now, they are free. Taliban is gone and the United States will bring peace and freedom to Kabul and Afghanistan. Finally. People could go back to school again. Women could start to work again. They were free.

On a NATO command, 52 countries were placed in Afghanistan and in 2003, people voted for a new government. They tried to establish a new democracy. They were working hard to develop a new constitution.

December 17, 2003 – Constitutional Convention.

Millions of dollars were sent to Afghanistan to rebuild the country and establish a new democracy. But the money came into the pockets of the war lords who had, once again, returned to power. Rich people built supermarkets and houses like the one in Europe. Poor people remained poor.

Corruption started to emerge and new conflicts was rising. Corruption to access education, health care, jobs and justice. That alone has huge impact on the election and the politics.

Taliban recruited new members and prepared a new comeback. Despite the escalating violence, 2014 saw the withdrawal of most international coalition troops. Many aid organizations likewise left the country.

In February 2020, the US signed a peace agreement with the Taliban and announced the complete withdrawl of its troops within 14 months. But the Taliban have subsequently taken advantage of the resulting vacuum and the fragility of Afghan democracy to overrun the country.

The future and security of Afghanistan and its women is once again in jeoparady.

In August 2021, the Taliban overruns nearly all major Afghan cities in just 10 days. On 15 August, they enter Kabul. The Afghan government hands over power to the Taliban.

Afghanistan is the land of endless wars. They fought against Alexander the Great, Djengis Khan and Britain. Now, they are fighting against Taliban. 80 percent of the population is depressed. They have lost their hope and dreams. Does it stop here, and what is the next chapter?

Toxic Pentagon leaders are lying

The establishment said everything is fine. Everything is calm. And president Biden said that Taliban will not take over Kabul. Right after that, Taliban took over Kabul and the rest of the country in a short period of time.

Retired Army Colonel, Dough MacGregor said on Fox that Pentagon leaders are lying to Americans and the rest of the world. Well, I`m not surprised at all. I have repedetly said that in decades.

We all remember the days after 9/11. Former president George Bush said to the Americans and the rest of the world that Iraq and Saddam Hussain have weapons of mass destruction. He went to a brutal war based on that information, but it was all a big lie.

The president is a puppet.

A president doesn`t know whats going on in Iraq all the time. Or Libya or Afghanistan or other places on this planet. So the information must come from someone.

Trump is probably one of the few who understood this, and that`s why he was sceptical to the establishment and Intel. That is also why he got problems, because they are all toghether powerful enemies. But someone had to do that dirty job, and Trump was choosen.

Now, Biden is in the Oval office, and he isn`t Trump. Biden is more like a puppet who is controlled by those behind the scene. Trump is more like John F Kennedy. Nor did JFK like Intel much. He wanted to crush CIA.

Kennedy warned you over 60 years ago. He warned you all about the Military Industrial Complex.

The military-industrial complex (MIC) is a nation`s military establishment, as well as the industries involved in the production of armaments. MIC describes the relationship between a nation`s military and the defense industry that supplies it.

JFK was more like Trump in many ways. They both didn`t like war. Trump is one of the few who didn`t go to war because he wanted peace and prosperity. So was Kennedy, but that was also one of his biggest problems.

In June, 1963, Kennedy said he wanted an end to the nuclear arms race, and that got more coverage in the Soviet Union than in the U.S. In September, the same year, JFK offered to convert the «Moon race» into a cooperative effort with the Soviet Union.

JFK`s change of approach on the Moon race was part of an effort to end the Cold War. And that was not music in MIC`s ears. Not at all.

Not only that. Right before he was shot, Kennedy wanted an end of the Vietnam war. What would the U.S and the world look like if JFK`s order on October 11, 1963 be like if they started the withdrawal from Vietnam?

And what would the world look like if the Cold War had ended with JFK in his second term, as planned, freeing up resources for peaceful purposes?

What society would we all live in today if we had chosen global cooperation instead of endless warfare?

After the American University address, John F Kennedy and Nikita Krushchev began to act like competitors in peace.

They were both turning. However, Kennedy`s rejection of Cold War politics was considered treasonous by forces in his own government. We all know what the Media Mob said about Trump and treason. In other words; JFK and Trump had a conflict with the establishment.

By the way; Dr King had a speech exactly one year before his assassination at Riverside Church. He was calling for an end to the Vietnam War. Coinsidence?

We all have to wake up when retired Army Colonel Doug MacGregor talks about toxic senior military leaders. Toxic because they simply don`t tell the truth.

«A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falshood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people,» JFK said.

This is why Trump made the words; «Fake News.» He went to a war against the Media Mob. He also went to war against the establishment. So, it`s not only a war against other countries, but also a war within. Surpringly, Biden is joining the club. He also wants to end the war. It stops with me, he said.

Trump wanted an end to the war in Afghanistan and made a deal with Taliban. President Joe Biden extended it, but made chaos when people wanted to get out from the country. Anyway; the war is over and the worlds biggest narko-state will be left alone in Afghanistan. Arthur Miller once said;

«An era can be said to end when its basic illusions are exhaused…. A sort of political surrealism came dancing through the ruins of what had nearly been a beautiful moral and rational world.»

Biden`s disastrous misadventure with Afghanistan

Former president Donald Trump was a commander-in-chief, but the Hate Media attacked him every single day. No matter what he did or say. The same cannot be said about President Joe Biden. Media loves him. No matter what he say or does.

A commander-in-chief or supreme commander is the person who exercise supreme command and control over an armed forces or a military branch. As a technical term, it refers to military competencies that recides in a country`s executive leadership, a head of state or a head of government.

Trump confronted China, defeated ISIS and depleted Iran. He did this because he wanted to protect the United States of America. Trump also created security at the boarder with Mexico, while Biden made a lot of chaos, but the Hate Media doesn`t talk much about that.

Steve Hilton think Trump was a strong leader with a peace of strength leadership, but Biden and the failed establishment is nothing but chaos through weakness. Rep Jackie Speier said on CNBC that the chaos is an «Intelligence failure.»

On July 8, Biden was questioned over intel before Afganistan collapsed. «Your own intelligence community has assessed that the Afghan government will likely collapse,» a journalist said. «That`s not true,» Biden said. Experts are claiming Biden lied and the Democrats is trying to shift the blame on the Intelligence community.

Wait a minute. This is similar to the chaos former president Bush created. He said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, and went to war on that. But it was all a big lie. The chaos started after the attack on twin towers, 9/11, 2001.

For all I know, Bush has never been in Iraq. So, who told him that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction?

We all know the chaos in Afghanistan, but who is talking about the leadership that created it? Very few, but Steve Hilton does, and he is angry. President Biden gave the government to Taliban only days before the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

This is a war England lost. This is also a war that Russia lost. They got bankruptsy in 1998 because of the war in Afghanistan. Now, the US gives up too. Billions is lost. Thousands of soldiers are killed, and there is nothing left.

This is embarrassing and Taliban declares the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. It seems like the democracy in Afghanistan is working, if democracy is «control of an organization or group by the majority of its members.»

Biden`s latest $1,8 trillion plan rejects the old social contract of work for benefits

Let`s face it; Joe Biden is the most popular president in the United States ever. More popular than Barrack Obama. More popular than Bill Clinton. What people actually voted for is bigger government, more government spending and more taxes.

Biden is not talking much to the Media, but after 100 days, he held a speech, and that speech scared the hell out of many people in the United States. One of them is Lindsey Graham. Biden scared the hell out of me tonight, he said.

He look weak as a commandor in chief, and he embraced socialism, Graham said.

The Media Mob attacked Trump for his border policy, but only a few is talking about the border crisis they have now. Biden talked about problems like racism, guns, virus and money, but didn`t say much about the border crisis they`re facing now.

He attacked rich and wealthy people that created the wealth in the United States. He want them to pay more money, so the government can grow bigger. If Biden`s policy works, why are GDP per capita in the U.S better than socialist countries?

Wall Street Journal Editorial Board had this headline earlier this week; «Biden`s Cradle-to-Grave Government.» His latest $1,8 trillion plan rejects the old social contract of work for benefits. Something that have worked under Clinton, Bush and Obama. But now, it seems like it is a new era. A socialist era.

All the people behind Joe Biden assume that the people who voted for him love his tax hikes and bigger government. In November 2022, we will find out if they are right….

Investments in the South China Sea are at risk

There is a lot of fish, oil and gas in The South China Sea, but who are the real owner of the sea?

China has claimed for years that about 90% of the South China Sea is their own territory. A document from 1940 stated that the sea is China`s. China and The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) agreed to start negotiating with each other before any move in 2001.

China want the territory and have started to build islands on the sea and claiming them as their own. They can do that because they have one simple strategy; ignore the law. People with Asian trade interest doesn`t like that. Neither do Indonesia, Brunei, Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam.

Investors in that area should consider to get out as soon as possible.

 

SouthChinaSea

(Picture: South China Sea)
The South China Sea is a marginal sea that is part of the Pacific Ocean, encompassing an area from the Singapore and Malacca Straits to the Strait of Taiwan of around 3,500,000 square kilometers (1,400,000 sq mi).

The area`s importance largely results from one-third of the world`s shipping transiting through its waters, and that it is believed to hold oil and gas reserves beneath its seabed. The sea and its mostly uninhabited islands are subject to competing claims of sovereignty by several countries.

South China Sea is the dominant term used in English for the sea, and the name in most European languages is equivalent, but it is sometimes called by different names in China`s neighboring countries, often reflecting historical claims to hegemony over the sea.

The English name is a result of early European interest in the sea as a route from Europe and South Asia to the trading opportunities of China. In the sixteenth century Portuguese sailors called it the China Sea (Mar da China).

The majority of the sea came under Japanese naval control during World War II following the military acquisition of many surrounding South East Asian territories in 1941.

The South China Sea contains over 250 small islands, atolls, cays, shoals, reefs and sandbars. The region has proven oil reserves of around 1,2 km3 (7,7 billion barrels) with an estimate of 4,5 km 3 (28 billion barrels) in total.

Natural gas reserves are estimated to total around 7,500 km3 (266 trillion cubic feet). A 2013 report by the U.S Energy Information Administration raised the total estimated oil reserves to 11 billion barrels. In 2014 China began to drill for oil in waters disputed with Vietnam.

Several countries have made competing territorial claims over the South China Sea. Such disputes have been regarded as Asia`s most potentially dangerous point of conflict.

Both, People`s Republic of China (PRC) and the Republic of China (ROC, commonly known as Taiwan) claim almost the entire body as their own, demarcating their claims within what is known as the nine-dotted line, which claims overlap with virtually every other country in the region.

China and Vietnam have both been vigorous in prosecuting their claims. China (various governments) and South Vietnam each controlled part of the Paracel Island before 1974. A brief conflict in 1974 resulted in 17 soldiers being killed, and China has controlled the whole of Paracel since then. Seventy Vietnamese sailors were killed just south of Chigua Reef in March 1988.

In July 2010, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for the Peoples Republic of China to resolve the territorial dispute. China responded by demanding the US keep out of the issue. In January 2013, The Philippines government said it will take China to a UN tribunal under the auspices of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, to challenge its claims in the South China Sea.

In May 2014, China established an oil rig near the Paracel Islands, leading to multiple incidents between Vietnamese and Chinese ships. Now, China has started building two military air strips on Subi Reef and Fiery Cross Reef.

«China has convinced itself that it is the rightful owner of almost the entire sea» author Bill Hayton said, which is the author of the book The South China Sea.

China want to be the owners of the islands because that will be the first step of owning 1,4 million square miles of sea, which is full of fish, oil and gas. The value of the natural resources in the sea gives the potential for disagreement and a conflict over territory in the South China Sea.

International Law under the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea, says a country can only own an area of a sea if it owns the land adjacent to it. A country that owns an island can claims 12 nautical miles of seabed around it, and has the rights to the resources (but not the territory) up to 200 nautical miles around it.

The Bush administration didn`t do much, but Obama was forced to take a stronger stance on the contested territory last friday. The Pentagon is discussing sending warships in the region.

Investments in the South China Sea are at risk.
