Afghanistan on brink of starvation

Apparently 22 million are in the next few months about to starve. Obviously Afghanistan has other problems causing this monumental disaster, but is this just a sign of things to come. If so why is the world not preparing to secure food. They seem more bothered about anything other than food right now.

How crazy are these poloticans and civil servants

the yanks only get involved when oil is threatened but dress it up as humanitarian. Most politicians like a little war to boost there egos and show they are patriotic and willing to be strong for their country. All while someone father,son,brother mother or sister get thrown under the bus as a causality of democracy. if they aren’t careful they’ll pick a fight with a big dog and get the sh1t kicked out of them. China has millions of it population with f all to loose and no respect of the western world.
 
Afghanistan is just another of the many examples were the western empire lead by the good old 'US of A' destroys entire countries and sows chaos destruction and poverty around the world and the only mainstream pushback is the opposition to the arrival of immigrants who are fleeing the devastation.

Not soon after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 the British government was discussing how they could get funds and military support to the ‘Islamic resistance’.

In 1981 Margaret Thatcher travelled to the Pakistan/Afghanistan border and addressed the Mujahideen. She told them “the hearts of the free world are with you” and that “we in Britain will continue to help you in every way we can”.

The Taliban was formed in the early 1990s by an Afghan faction of the mujahideen. What you reap you sow.

that was a case of 'the enemy of my enemy' though i suppose.....the ultimate demise of the ussr making the world a safer place IMO

some 'questions in the world' can't be answered sadly....i mean how do you help ppl controlled by a regime that cares nothing for it's population

As long as there is religion in the world there is going to be famine and war in the world.

I am sure the talibans sky wizard would much rather they concentrated on making sure families had something to eat rather instead of shooting people in the face for singing or cutting peoples hair.

But then how can someone who believes in their own sky wizard criticise someone else’s sky wizard? Good old religion eh.

Because non religious states have never carried out any humanitarian atrocities.....
