Kabul has fallen. Rudyard Kipling must have turned in his grave because Kabul ever was the limit to the white man's dreams and ambitions. There Alexander the Great 's vision of uniting the West to the East turned into an oriental mirage. History repeats itself.
August 15 th 2021.The Talibans are slithering into the city. Following the English Imperialists, the Russian Communists, the idealistic Americans are in turn laying down the white man's burden and leaving on their tiptoes.
Beyond the political and human consequences, the fall of Kabul has a huge symbolic echo. It illustrates the victory of Islam over liberal democracy.
It was indeed predictable that those who were ready to die for God would defeat those who did not want to fight and relied on us to do the fighting. They were supposed to be supporting our liberal democracy. But as a matter of fact they were often corrupt and merely saw in our lifestyle cell phones, crazy music, easy money and easy girls.
Not all fortunately, but are we supposed to welcome them if they are not ready to go back home to resume the fight ? If their sole ambition is to stay with us the way they want and at our cost ?
We are responsible for this mess because we misused our science and technology, as well as our moral liberty in the ignorance of God ans His laws.
Now it his in His Name the West has to fight back, just to survive and not to impose a decadent libertarian liberal democracy, the very model which caused our defeat. Our defeat, because the American defeat is ours. It is the defeat of this western Empire France is part of, this France from which we may expect a healthy reaction and renewal in the name of Almigthy God.
T like Talibans ? No like Templars !..
