Why can't the "world's greatest military" win against a group of men armed with nothing more than home-made bombs in Afghanistan?

What's wrong with them?

Lack of intelligence? Lack  ...



It is a very thought provoking -dare I say - poignant - topic.

A nation bursting at the seems with the very latest high tech arsenal - complete air supremacy - high mobility with helicopter airbourne - thousands of "special forces" infiltrated around the country dressed as and posing as Afghans and laser painting potential targets as well as continuing the old "Phoenix" program of assassinations in the middle of the night.

A nation with constant surveilance of anyhting moving on the ground from the network of satellite and AWAKS aircraft - a nation with remote control AUVs ready to launch deadly missiles in surprise long range attacks.

A nation that trains it's ground troops to advance until engaged then withdraw and call in a massive air strike to take out a couple of freedom fighters.

A nation that crows of the high degree of accuracy for it's laser guided bombs and missiles.

Yes a good question - why do they have so much difficulty overcoming a small poorly armed enemy?

It could be that it serves US purposes to keep a massive military force stationed in the region, ready to attack the next victim they choose to fall upon.

It could be that it serves their purpose to keep their Zionist control defence industries soaking up mega billions of dollars which they could not do if the world and the US in particular were at peace and living in harmony.

Politically they are happy because the body armour and low contact rate is keeping KIA numbers down - always a sore point with the US citzens - but politically the US has manufactured virtually an endless supply of "enemies" to keep the pot boiling for as long as they want to.

If we consider the factors mentioned above we should ask why is there so much killing of innocent civilians?

Precision guided weapons do not go astray to find a wedding party - but what a bonus in killing so many innocents - it ensures the children and relatives who survive will take up arms against the murderers of their families. Just as it did in Iraq. The US was able to drag the war and occupation out for a long time - making sure they had plenty of time to build up their numbers in the region and of course gain invaluable experience for its pilots and ground forces - blooding them in relative safety yet preparing them for what may be a much tougher road ahead.

One only needs to look at the ruthless aproach the US had when it served up two nuclear bombs to Japan thus ending WWII in the Pacific. But now they go to war with the goal of installing a regime of lap  and making sure of a prolonged and profitable conflict.

The lies used to justify the wars become part of the equation.

But if we look deeper into the US machine we also uncover a wealth of hideous programs such as MKUltra.

Did the US stage all of the preliminary stages using people they had taken into deep mind control programs and set them up for such things as the attack on the WTC and Pentagon?

Did they take Arab men and women and subject them to mind control programs and then turn them loose to be suicide bombers that they could summon when required?

I for one would hope not - just as I would hope they do not deliberately prolong these conflicts to keep the massive defence industry rolling in $$$$.

But if there is one thing that 64 years of watching the manouvering of the political machinery of the world it is to expect the worst from them - if it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck then it most probably is a duck.

Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.

not real

US dropped bombs on Japan for their cowardly attacks and continuous refusal to surrender. If Japan would have surrendered when they agreed within the first few times they agreed... then US would not have dropped the big bombs.
That was back in time where other countries were involved in a race to invent the first big bomb... US won that race by a very short margin... Please research history in the making of those bombs and why they had to be used before stating false assumptions.
And the other BS isn't even worth dignifying a response... Specially if you think man created the universe?!?  Enough said! LOL!

Impossible by definition!

A War on drugs?

A war on crime?

A war on obesity?

A war on smoking?

No one is supposed to win wars anymore!



How would anyone call the conquest of the Middle East a War?

Did Alexander the Great have any wars, or just a series of conquests?

well that was a war because the Nazis had run into a formidable opponent.

But there was no war on Poland from Nazi Germany

No war on France from Nazi Germany , neither!

The French might have declared war and then sat in their fortified line of bunkers waiting for it to happen, but it didn't!
