Why did America come to Afghanistan?
Sixteen years ago, on October 7, the United States launched a raid on Afghanistan, which broke out in the wake of the collapse of global towers in the United States. Al-Qaeda terrorist group led by Osama bin Laden claimed responsibility for the attack, after which the former president of the United States told the world that “the world is either with us or against us,” and the worlds stood with the United States, they came to Afghanistan to attack the Taliban and fight al-Qaeda to eliminate terrorist groups.
It’s been 16 years since this, more than 40% of Afghanistan’s territory is under the control of the armed Taliban, the highways are not safe and there is no legitimate government, why did it happen? Why did not the Americans who made the Taliban in a few months but failed to eliminate this group over sixteen years?
Why World Trade Towers in New York? And how they collapsed?
Four passenger airliners operated by two major U.S. passenger air carriers (United Airlines and American Airlines) all of which departed from airports in the northeastern United States bound for California — were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists. Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed, with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the World Trade Center complex, including the 47-story 7 World Trade Center tower, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense) in Arlington County, Virginia, leading to a partial collapse of the building’s western side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, initially was steered toward Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers. 9/11 was the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed respectively.
The total number of kidnappers was 19, and the nationality of the kidnappers was 15 Saudi nationals, 2 nationals of the United Arab Emirates, one Egyptian national and a Lebanese citizen. The operational team of the 9/11 incident was entirely Arab and a member of the al-Qaeda organization.
But it is said that the US government was involved in the collapse of these towers or deliberately did not prevent the incident from happening because they wanted to come to Afghanistan for some reason and get this geography and create base.
The companies that carried out the security of the airfields were said to be related to Jewish companies, with about 4,000 Jewish workers working in the same place, but only five were killed.
Why did the United States invade Afghanistan and what was its outcome?
The US-led NATO launched a long-term free-rider operation on October 7, and after a month the Taliban regime collapsed and held the Bonn conference. Despite the fact that Satar Serat had gained 9 votes and should have been the President, but they selected Hamid Karzai with just three votes, and with the presence of Karzai and the United States, the river of money was swept through Afghanistan, they began their struggle against terrorism, but until now, and by passing of 16 years, what did America really achieve? In 2001, Afghanistan was involved with a terrorist group, but now after 16 years, with support of dozens of foreign countries, Afghanistan is involved with 21 terrorist groups.
The strategic reason that the United States has come to Afghanistan relates to the past years, which pledged to Pakistan to flare up civil wars in Afghanistan, and the war caused the Taliban to emerge. The Taliban was reportedly created by Pakistan with the financial support of the United States, when the Taliban failed to defeat the North Front, and this indirect battle became costly for America, with the assassination of Ahmad Shah Massoud, the national hero of Afghanistan, the opposition front broke up in Afghanistan and with the collapse of Commercial towers in New York legitimized the war in Afghanistan.
There is a statement that during the visit of Ahmed Shah Massoud to Europe and his attention to the international community was kind of promoted to cause no one to oppose the presence of the United States.
The United States arrived in Afghanistan and wanted to restrain the Asian powers by creating several bases that failed, Russia and Iran in Syria crushed the United States, and Pakistan is a long-standing United States ally to China and now lies among the countries that did not count for a while.
What did Afghanistan have for sixteen years and what did it get?
Afghanistan did not have security before the US invasion, there was no regular electricity, the capital was not safe, it was not a legitimate government? And while sixteen years have passed since the American presence in Afghanistan, with the consumption of more than $150 billion in Afghanistan, only a few high buildings were constructed and a fake democracy; despite the consumption of billions of dollars in Afghanistan, even the capital has no regular electricity; in the capital, more roads are not asphalted, there is no security, the government is not legitimate, and the thousands of other problems that the Afghan people are facing daily.
More than anything else, the existence of more than 21 terrorist groups in Afghanistan, that was the only American achievement over the course of sixteen years, apart from the fact that the casualties of military and civilians’ increased over the years.
