We don’t ever learn anything from experience.
The lesson of the Great War was that World War II could have been and ought to have been avoided. The lesson of Vietnam was not to occupy Afghanistan for 20 years. The lesson of the intervention in Somalia was not to resettle refugees from a vastly different culture in Minneapolis.
ZERO THOUGHT is given to the consequences of resettling refugees from war zones and particularly vastly different Islamic cultures in the secular and liberal West. We are ruled by grifters and emoting morons who repeat the same mistakes over and over and over again.
“As many as 100 Afghan evacuees flown out of war-torn Kabul are on intelligence agency watch lists, a United States government official warned on Tuesday as it was revealed one passenger flown out to Qatar has potential ties to ISIS.
The Afghans, potential candidates for Special Immigration Visas (SIV), were flagged as possible matches to intelligence agency watch lists by the Defense Department’s Automated Biometric Identification System, an official with the U.S. government told Defense One.
The Afghan who has potential ties to ISIS was detected by security screeners at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar after they were evacuated from Kabul Airport, another official told the outlet. There have been 6,000 Afghans taken to the air base. …”
We have a moral obligation to our “Afghan allies” who didn’t even fight the Taliban and surrendered in under a month! We have to go back into Afghanistan and retake Bagram Air Force Base so that all of them can be imported here! Give them their own city like the Kurds were given Nashville!
“In 2014, when waves of refugees began flooding into western Europe, citizens and officials alike responded with generosity and openness. Exhausted refugees spilled out of trains and buses to be met by crowds bearing gifts of clothing and food, and holding up placards that read “Welcome Refugees.”
This was a honeymoon that could not last. Some of the upcoming difficulties had been anticipated: that the newcomers did not speak the local languages, might be traumatized, would probably take a long time to find their footing, and had brought their ethnic, religious and sectarian conflicts with them, causing them to get into battles with each other. All of these things happened but—as Angela Merkel promised—were manageable. “Wir schaffen das.” …”
The Taliban itself germinated in refugee camps in Pakistan. Germany, Austria and the Netherlands are already plagued by Afghan criminals due to Angela Merkel’s decision to take them in 2015.
