139 Years After Sherlock's Watson, Western invaders Of Afghanistan Are Still Being Taught Lessons

*

Arthur Conan Doyle's character Watson, Sherlock Holmes' partner

  was hurt in Afghanistan between 1878 & 1880. British soldiers in 3 different imperialist colonial invasions (1839–42; 1878–80; 1919) were driven out. Yet 180 years after 1st UK invasion, 4 US soldiers have died this year in the Bush Obama Trump war inAfghanistan.

 

Millions of deaths and injuries to people, animals, billions of birds harmed by bombs, the bombing of trees hastens global climate extremes, trillions to war profiteers as the people of the US have suffered from the immoral illegal wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen (providing air support for Saudi bombing and starvation of the people of Yemen), Syria etc.


Initiation of wars in Afghanistan, Syria, and assassinations in Vietnam, destabilization in Venezuela etc. are being conducted not by the Pentagon but the CIA.  Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John F Kennedy, and Jimmy Carter are 4 presidents who wanted either to abolish the CIA or to confine it to intelligence gathering, eliminating the agency's assassinatons, wars, destabilizations etc.
