It is still too early to predict whether or not the rapidly advancing Taliban will succeed in making a clean sweep of Afghanistan and imposing their rule on the whole country, but one thing is crystal clear, and that is the melting away of the US-trained Afghan national army.
This speaks volumes of the dismal standards of training imparted over the past two decades to the Afghan soldiers by the supposedly world-class American military forces.
Perhaps some may say the US occupation forces deliberately did not fully train the Afghan army or taught them the proper use of the superior American arms.
A close scrutiny, however, of the fleeing of Afghan soldiers and their laying down of arms instead of resisting the Taliban onslaughts, shows the substandard of the American trainers themselves, which in turn exposes the whole US military setup as full of cracks and ready to collapse when faced by determined opponents.
Afghanistan is not the only place where the chinks in the US armour have been fully exposed along with the obsoleteness of American supplied weaponry.
In Yemen, we have seen the shabby performance of the US-trained Saudi army against the locally trained and literally barefooted Yemeni soldiers. In frustration the battle-avoiding Saudis unmanly use their US-British air power to bomb civilians of a country that does not have a viable air force to confront them.
Before that we witnessed the collapse of the American-trained Iraqi national army when faced with the macabrely murderous takfiri terrorists, who were only routed by the heroic Hashd ash-Sha’bi or Popular Liberation Units (PMU) – thanks to the advice and arms they received from Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
The same is the story in Gaza where the self-trained Palestinian liberation militias have discouraged the Zionist army – a protégé of the US with American methods of training – from invading the besieged enclave.
Earlier in 2006, the whole world had witnessed the shattering of the myth of invincibility of the Israeli armed forces during the 33-day war in Lebanon by the legendry anti-terrorist movement, the Hezbollah, which draws inspiration from the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Even in Syria, the US-trained terrorists with their American arms are no match for the Syrian army and popular militias, which are fully capable of liberating, not just Idlib and the American occupied enclaves of Deir ez-Zore, but Israeli usurped Golan Heights when the moment arrives.
These undeniable facts, coupled with the US failure to defeat the Taliban, ought to awaken the interim government of Iraq which is causing widespread resentment amongst the Iraqi people, besides squandering billions of dollars of national oil wealth, by prolonging the unwarranted presence of Americans on the unconvincing claim of imparting training to the Iraqi army.
Nuclear-armed US, which is without the least doubt a criminal regime with a terrorist record of dropping atomic bombs on unsuspecting cities and massacring millions of people, is a coward to its very core and at the same time completely devoid of any manliness or humanitarian tendencies.
It maintains its illegal military presence around the world, solely on the inflated image of its military and so-called state-of-the-art weapons technology, which in case of confrontation will definitely be decisively defeated – not by big powers like Russia or China, but by small and determined countries (North Korea for example).
