This is only the beginning.
Expect the barbaric bloodbath to continue.
“We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay.” — President Biden (August 26), after the latest carnage on the streets of Kabul, The US Prepares To Strike Back.
Latest news based on multiple news reports from different mainstream sources:
— At least 60 people killed and 140 injured in suicide bomb attacks at Kabul airport.
— Young children among the victims as Afghan families tried to flee the Taliban rule.
— 12 US servicemen among the dead after Isis explosions near American and British forces.
— Huge crowds of Afghans build up at border with Pakistan as people try to escape overland.
— Faster withdrawal of remaining US troops ahead of Tuesday’s deadline now more likely.
— More Western nations say they can no longer rescue their citizes amid airport chaos. These include Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Hungary.
— US and Britain continue airlifts . . . but UK’s final civilian flight could take off today.
— Britain gets the booby prize for its farcical incompetence in dealing with this humanitarian crisis. A special helpline launched by the British government last week for vulnerable non-British nationals trapped in the Afghan inferno redirected all callers to a washing machine repair shop in Coventry. Presumably these frantic individuals stranded abroad were then locked in dialogue with helpful workers anxious to advise them on the virtues of various laundry products. Repeated calls failed and led them next to an answering machine for the hardware chain Wilco, according to a report by The Courier. The government apologised profusely and blamed it all on a “technical glitch”. Labour MP David Lammy tweeted angrily: ‘You can’t make this up. This government’s incompetence is ludicrous and dangerous.” (See “Isis-K Jihadist network who think the Taliban soft, The Independent [‘U’], 27 August 2021, p. 7).
— After the surprise attack on the Afghan capital on Friday at 6.30pm local time, Biden issued a grim warning to the terrorists: to expect the United States to hit back soon and take its revenge. “We will hunt you down and make you pay!”, he threatened, his voice shaking with emotion. (Scroll down to the 1-minute video featured HERE).
It is important to stress at this point that the latest terrorist attacks were carried out by Isis-K, a terrorist organisation banned by the Pentagon in January 2016. This is a relatively small group of fanatical extremists, numbering perhaps 1000-2000 at the most, who regard the US-backed puppet government in Kabul as “dangerous liberals”. Unbelievably, they think the official Taliban regime too soft and easy-going in its approach.
It has already been suggested by imaginative conspiracy theorists that the official Taliban government and Isis-K are secretly in cahoots, working in collusion to establish Sharia law and impose it forcibly on the rest of the world. As things stand, there is no basis whatever for this exciting conspiracy theory, given that hard facts and common sense contradict it absolutely. However, this will not prevent this thrilling theory from gaining ground among those who prefer fantasy to fact.
Here are some verifiable factual details about Isis K that need to be considered carefully before we proceed any further.
Founded in 2015, Isis-K was the local Afghan branch of the notorious global network known as “Al-Qaeda”. Its specific aim was to establish an Islamic caliphate across Khorasan — hence the initial ‘K’ — an historic region covering vast tracts of central Asia. This fictitious country does not as yet exist. In this sense, “Greater Khorasan”, as it is known to its devotees, is remarkably like “Greater Israel”. It exists only in aspiration, in the minds of those who long to see the dream come true and turned into a reality.
The territories that comprise Greater Khorasan consist not only of Afghanistan as its hub and centre but extend also to Pakistan, parts of historic Persia (Iran), Turkmenistan, Tajikstan, and Uzbekistan. These currently independent countries, which have no wish to be gobbled up by Isis-K and become puppet statelets within Greater Khorasan, are targets for takeover by a hardcore of zealots who set no value on human life, including their own lives. Dying in battle is for them the crowning glory. Every single member of Isis K — and that includes women and warrior children as young as 12—is only too happy to commit suicide for the glory of Allah.
Suicide in battle, after all, is not only the noblest of deaths according to this ancient code of honour, but also happens to be the quickest way to get into heaven — where everlasting bliss is guaranteed.
It seems on further examination, however, that Khorasan is only a stepping stone to a far vaster Islamic caliphate in which Sharia law and “the banner of al Uqab [will be raised] above Jerusalem and the White House“.
The map below will give you an idea of the shape of things to come — if all goes according to plan:
This is only the beginning. Our children and grandchildren have an exciting life ahead of them. One thing is for certain. They will not die of boredom.
All we can do now is wait and see.
This poem of mine expresses my deepest thoughts on this subject.
