Anybody who knows anything about history, and has been paying attention to the events that have unfolded during the 20th century in particular, should, and with very good reason, be very worried about what is happening in the world right now.
Because if they really were paying attention, they will be acutely aware that history always has a nasty habit of repeating itself, as lessons are very rarely learned by those who have held the reins of power throughout the world, and therefore, have controlled those events, and the narratives that have been woven around them.
They would also know, that the 20th century, particularly during the period between August 1914, and the fall of the Berlin Wall during November 1989, was, without a doubt, the bloodiest time in the whole of human history.
There was more death and destruction caused by wars, diseases, famines, plagues, natural disasters and pogroms implemented by both political and religious ideologies, than at any other period in time … ever!
If your first response is to question that claim, or simply find it far to difficult to even consider as a possibility, then you really have not been paying attention.
You may have, in all probability, been otherwise engaged, or distracted somehow by any number of the things that have been carefully crafted to demand all of your time and attention.
The never-ending streams of wall-to-wall ‘entertainment’, perhaps, or you have been kept busy, chasing after the latest and brightest and shiniest bit of kit that has been created, just to keep you continually plugged-in and always connected.
And connected to everything, and anything, other than what you really should be looking at, listening to, and learning about.
Would that be a fair assessment?
Would that be an accurate analogy?
So taking that a step or two further, the question must be asked, what does the future have in store for us, what comes next?
Is history really going to repeat itself yet again, and is the 21st century going to be any different than the last?
Does anybody really know the answer to that, can the future be predicted?
The future can certainly be steered in a certain direction, and as easily as the destruction of millions upon millions of human beings between 1914 and 1989 has shown, which was the end result of a chain of entirely manufactured events that began on 28 June, 1914, in Sarajevo.
Would somebody like Elon Musk know, for example?
According to the Daily Mail, where that article was published on 24 August, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO’s references to ‘The Guns of August’ are ‘unclear’, and could refer to Musk’s ambitions to develop AI (Artificial Intelligence) which ‘will surpass humans in every way’, which is a fair assumption to make I suppose, and could become a reality if Elon Musk gets his way, but what if you exchange Sarajevo in 1914, for Afghanistan in 2021?
What could the future hold for us then?
Could what US President Joe Biden has just done, (withdrawing the US military presence from Afghanistan, while leaving billions of dollars worth of state-of-the-art, and technologically advanced weaponry), been a deliberate act, and one that could, in all probability, begin a chain of events, that will make the 20th century appear peaceful by comparison?
Going on any number of accounts, the military hardware that has been left behind by the United States in Afghanistan, includes the following:
- 2000 Armoured Vehicles, including Humvee’s and MRAP’s.
- 75,989 vehicles in total
- 45 Black Hawk Helicopters
- 50 MD530G Scout Attack Helicopters
- Military Drones (Scan Eagle)
- 30 Cessna light aircraft (Military Versions)
- 29 Brazilian-built A-29 Super Tocano Ground Attack Aircraft
- 208+ other aircraft
- At least 600,000+ Small Arms, M16s, M249s, SAWs, M24s, and 50 Cal Sniper Systems
- 1,394 M203 Grenade Launchers
- M134 Mini Gun
- 20mm Gatling Guns and ammunition
- 61,000 M203 Ammunition Rounds
- 20,040 Grenades
- Mortars and 1000s of rounds of ammunition
- 162,000 pieces of Encrypted Military Communications Equipment
- 16,000+ Night Vision Goggles
- Latest Technology Night Vision Scopes
- Thermal Scopes and Thermal Mono Goggles
- 10,000 2.75 inch Air to Ground Rockets
- Reconnaissance Equipment (ISR)
- Laser Aiming Units
- Explosives Ordinance C-4, Semtex, Detonators, Charfes, Thermite, Incendiaries, AP/API/APIT
- 2.520 Bombs
- Encrypted Cell Phones and Laptops (all operational)
- Pallets loaded with millions of dollars in US Currency
- Millions of rounds of ammunition
- A large stockpile of Plate Carriers and Body Armour
- US Military HIIDE, for Handheld Interagency Identity Detection Equipment Biometrics
- Tons of heavy equipment, including Bulldozers, Backhoes, Dump Trucks and Excavators ….. and much more.
There are also reports circulating, that several high-security storage warehouses have been abandoned, which needed top-level security clearance to enter, and contained a variety of ‘special’ military equipment, such as shoulder-carry ‘STINGER’ and anti-aircraft missiles.
One more thing, if the Taliban now being in possession of any or all of the above was not worrying enough, it has been claimed that they now also possess US Military Drone Jamming Apparatus, which are designed to do exactly what it says on the tin….
So, as you are reading this, it is highly likely that high-ranking members of the Chinese Communist Party, and troops of the People’s Liberation Army, and perhaps from Moscow and Tehran, all have boots on the ground in Afghanistan, negotiating to buy anything that they find interesting, which they will take away to analyse and possibly reverse-engineer, and reproduce.
The laser aiming systems will certainly be analysed, as the capability to jam or neutralise missiles, means that anything laser-guided can be re-steered away from its intended target.
The US-built Military Communications Technology that was abandoned, is encrypted in such a way that the encryption cannot be broken, it has no ‘back doors’ built into it, and if that technology is used against the US or any other country that is perceived to be an enemy of the Taliban, ISIS, Al Queda, or the CCP, it cannot be spied upon or even monitored.
Moving onto the wider world, it is estimated that every terrorist organisation around the world, will have un-crackable, heavily-encrypted communication facilities within a matter of weeks, and once the shoulder-carried Stingers and Ground to Air missiles get into the wrong hands, civilian aircraft will not stand a chance against them, as they can be used from any location, and certainly without warning.
America may not survive what Joe Biden and his administration have allowed to happen in Afghanistan, nor will its allies, and the wider world has now become a much more dangerous place for everyone.
So the question I ask, is Joseph Biden so completely inept, so clueless, so away with the fairies, or so dangerously incompetent, that neither he, or anyone in his administration was not aware of the consequences of his actions.
Or did they know exactly what they were doing?
Perhaps Elon Musk knows the answer.
