The one writing here “recently has heard from many young people, with whom he is networked in Afghanistan, how big the fear of 2014 is – the withdrawal of NATO troops.
And - NATO is speaking once more of a “change of strategy”. When this continues like that, in 2014 a new catastrophe will hit the country – the next war of War- and Landlords – this time armed even much better. “ 42
Soon the author of these lines receives a mail: “…today’s message from A.: “ I’m in Afghanistan, but am hidden. I don’t have any contact with nobody. Because of the threats I’ve lost my family and I don’t have any idea about them” … . These are the results of “our” Peace mission. A sad story. I don’t know any more, how I could help him.”
The one writing here again addresses these and the following words to the close friend – the friar at Kabul :
“The big ignorance obverse the Afghans – I have always noted that, when I was working there.
Once I told “my engineers” – if Germany after WW2 had been treated the way, Afghanistan was treated still 8 yeaars after the invasion – in the 1960s we would have had a new war in Central Europe – most likely soon also over and above.
It cannot be, that the West there is acting lacking any responsibility!
What is still left there from humanism and charity, when they let everything go down the drain!
In my passport Kabul is my place of residence.
I’m ashamed of it being a German passport.
If I hadn’t noted this increasingly rankly performing fascism globally in these last years – I would immediately ask for political asylum at another place.
Because – here people should know best, what it means, when more and more dominos fall and the sound of battle is growing louder and louder.
Because – in effect it was Obama’s undoing, Merkel (ultimately and irrevocably?) committed with her silly “saving=austerity dogma”.
That was the ultimate weapon of Tea-Party-fascists against the US-American people.
When this is continuing like that, dear brother – then – good night.” –
That way he assails the poor spiritual brother.
The first sentence – one is increasingly more tempted to insert the Greeks and other Southern European peoples instead of the Afghans.
Ignorance is the sister of stupidity and cowardice – and – irresponsibility.
How long do the chancellor and her technically aswoon executors stand that?
The following reply of the spiritual brother – his words sound exhausted.
The answer from the one writing here:
of course I know, that you – particularly you yourself are living and working in Afghanistan since quite a long time and – I admire your work and your staying power.
Whenever I told people here about you, they listened attentively. Because – ultimately judgment day over Afghanistan and the Afghans has already been long time ago – the verdict has already been handed down.
Nobody has put it in a nutshell the way Ulli Ladurner did that in his ZEIT-article in late September 2010: “They are Incapable for Democracy! – The West Denounces the Afghans and Detracts from his own Failure (- his own Breakdown).” 6 – I absolutely wanted to get to know him and Can Merey7 from dpa – German Press Agency, located in Delhi – there in Afghanistan and both have become close friends of mine. Ulli has had quite some trouble as a freelancer at the ZEIT for still gaining something after that article was edited.
You’re talking about thousands of containers of nuclear waste, the Russians have drowned in the Northern Sea. In our propaganda press though it’s not mentioned any more, how much oil is spilling the Gulf of Mexico everyday, because the drill hole of the Deepwater Horizon could never completely be closed and – the true radiation datas from Fukushima are as well almost completely kept secret in Western media as well.
ALL OF THEM are plundering and despoiling the planet – Mother Earth – the Americans first of all ( the Chinese, we not any less at all – all of us).
But – everybody’s just pointing a finger on the others.
Nothing is done for changing – for improving things.
Well – you’ve experienced all of them – all three totalitarian systems there in Afghanistan – the Soviets and their invasion, that gave the Warsaw Pact some 12 more years, the Taliban with their perverted interpretation of the Qur’an – now the West.
Carl-Friedrich von Weizsäcker and some others predicted that subtle dictatorship, which now steers us into recession or downfall long time ago.
The crazy thing about it is – Miss Merkel there is almost powerless – we’re quasi observing the implosion of the Pax Americana in real time and – we must prevent, that it becomes an explosion.
Your personal bottom lines – I deeply respect and honor them. But I have given life to two kids, I have sent into that world.
Every father – parents, who love their kids want, that they are well – that they will have chances for living a good and fulfilled life.
This isn’t guaranteed since long time.
Germany goes the most extreme way in fulfilling an ideological agenda – as it has always done within the last 90 years.
A Mafia leadership, where everything bit by bit is destroyed, what also my parents have built up with many others.
Education and experience are unconditionally punished in such a system.
Or – do you think I gained some money here in Germany after my job was cancelled in Kabul?
Most doors, I knocked on (gently, but certainly decided) weren’t even opened a bit – others were just closed in my face.
But – no particular case.
Insofar – the Armageddon, you’re describing – there will be more and more people standing up against it – they are already doing that.
It won’t be easy, but – we just have inherited that world from our children – for once quoting that phrase.
There’s a lot of truth in that – and – some incentive.
Embracing you heartily and -
With not any less cordial regards to your brothers – sf”
At another point he yet had written:
“My books regarding that – weak point analysis of the hitherto existing procedure there (in Afghanistan) and development of pilot projects with precise assessment of demands – as I could study all that for 1 ½ years on-site – not even one publishing house had the courage to edit that yet.
Entrepreneurial risk versus Peaceful initiatives for enabling a broad discussion –
in Neoliberalism always the entrepreneurial doubt wins –
the improvement of living conditions there – rebuilding concepts between socio-economical analysis and Engineering sciences – nobody there is interested into that.
Thus – let them just be at war with one another – or – does one even not think that far any more?
Well – I suppose, we have to be afraid, that the ones, deciding there don’t even think that far any more.”

7 http://www.perlentaucher.de/buch/can-merey/die-afghanische-misere.html - also just German - The book by Can Merey “The Afghan Misery” was edited in September 2008 - just at the time, when things moved more and more significantly towards decline. Told my colleagues from the UK and the US at Kabul about the brilliant analysis, contacted the publishing house - it rested a provincial thing - like everything there within the “international community”, that couldn’t compete with the urgence of needs at a war zone since 30 years.
