Australia has no business in Afghanistan : Comments

By Bruce Haigh, published 5/1/2009

Afghanistan: increasingly much of the opposition is focused on getting rid of the Western foreigners as much as it is around ideology and religion.

Only Bruce Haigh has the gall to squeeze David Hicks, Haneef and Guantanamo Bay into an article about Afghanistan.

However, his overall theme of Australia having no business being in the rat hole of Afghanistan is correct.

Again, the question must be asked: Why does Labor think it is bad to be in Iraq, but good to be in Afghanistan, where we have lost our eighth soldier in a totally hopeless endeavour.

If Australia kept out of these foreign wars not even in our region we wouldn't have these so-called refugees and illegal entrants turning up here, thinking that we cared about them when all we are doing is keeping sweet with the US.

We never learned the lesson of Vietnam and that stupid, stupid man, Malcolm Fraser who first sanctioned boat arrivals after another needless, lost war.

If Afghanistan people wanted our assistance they would be supporting our army. There does not seem to be much evidence that this is happening. The opposite is true such as many countries throught the ages have shown us, no outside army can win.

One thing for sure, the people are the ones that pay the price.

So what do we do ?
Let the Taliban set up their training camps with the aid of the
Al Quaeda again ?

Have you all forgotten that the Bali bombers trained in the Afghan camps ?

Well, let me hear what you propose to do if we all left and they
reestablished the training camps. Don't sqwib answering this question
because it is at the crux of the matter.

There does not seem to be any evidence that we are getting rid of Taliban. Any way are they in Afgran now. As I seem to recall they came from many Arab countries including Saudi.

No Flo, Al Queada are definitely Arab but they had close contacts
with the Taliban and were allowed to set up the training camps by
the Taliban. They were involved together in the camps.

Birds of a feather.

Contrary to what Bazz writes, Al Qaeda was set up by the CIA and remains a CIA asset to this day.

That it was set up by the CIA to fight the leftist Government which came to power in Afghanistan in 1978 is not disputed.

That Al Qaeda subsequent turned on the US is a myth and can be shown to be such. What it is is a largely phantom terrorist organisation conjured up by the CIA to justify the fraudulent "war on terror" to achieve the sociopathic world goals of American neo-cons. This is discussed on the forum "War: not in my name" at http://forum.onlineopinion.com.au/thread.asp?article=8306#130548

Whilst Al Qaeda may have facilitated the recruitment of patsies to perform the 9/11 hijackings, the masterminds behind the 9/11 'false flag' terrorist attack were in the White House and not Afghanistan.

For further information see discussion of "9/11 Truth" at http://forum.onlineopinion.com.au/thread.asp?discussion=2166#51675 http://911oz.com http://911blogger.com http://911truth.org http://ae911truth.org

Just some of the many credible well-credetnialled people who dispute the official US government version of th 9/11 attacks are listed at http://www.911truthgroups.org/911Truth101/Step2ProminentSupporters/tabid/633/Default.aspx

I actually defended the war in Afghanistan because I accepted George Bush's Big Lie of September 11.

I only began to question it about 18 months ago. About 4 months ago, I began to seriously studied the issue and have reached the firm conclusion that the whole justification for the war in Afghanistan was a lie.
