"Irritatingly, for example, the second world war in Europe did not begin when the Nazis victimised the Soviets in 1941, but in 1939, with the German invasion of Poland. German aggression was aided by the Molotov-Ribbentrop (or Hitler-Stalin) Pact of the same year.

In its wake, Stalin assisted Hitler in carving up Poland in 1939, before waging war on Finland in 1939-40, and moving to take over Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, as well as Bessarabia and the Northern Bukovina in 1940. The brutality of these annexations – the arrests, deportations, executions – prevent an unambiguously positive narrative of the Soviet Union’s second world war."

https://www.history.com/topics/world-war-ii/geneva-convention Nazi Germany's U-boat followed the Geneva Convention during the extremely cold winter of 1939-1940. The U.S.S.R. under Stalin didn't sign the Geneva Convention so Nazi German military viewed and treated the Soviet civilians as subhuman. Not abiding by international rules has consequences, repercussions, and reverberations of revenge.

尽快从红色中国逃出来财富可以再次获得, 要自由则困难得多了。 Unifications are usually very bloody affairs: in China and in Japan; but not always, due to negotiated unifications as in 1990 Germany ( U.S.S.R. was the weakened great power nearby ) and 1997 Hong Kong ( Red China was the weakened great power nearby ). Now Red China "is strong," the old promises don't count anymore.

The U.S. must adhere to this Red China's rule of "being strong," and get any and all U.S. citizens, allies, endangered human rights activists, and workers and families safely out of Afghanistan. What's the big strong gun good for if not to serve and protect ? Impose Pax Americana. New Red Dawn. Let 43 to 0 winning score be reached if need be ( New York had its Brooklyn's Stuyvesant Town, Crown Heights, East New York, Manhattan's East Harlem, the Bronx's South Bronx, etc. for decade upon decade as crime scenes, burnt-down buildings and burnt-out rubble in "brown fields," and wee-hours' shooting galleries, etc. and there was bipartisan support so we can certainly support a sparsely populated version of these in Afghanistan for 50 more years; Detroit fared worse off than New York because it had its bipartisan support for shipping overseas the numerous dark-skinned folks' jobs { the U.S. didn't practice Rhine Capitalism, which has a labor representative on each corporate governing board, to force the huge corporations to compete, but instead let them capture the governments, leading to the demise of Detroit }; New York Chinatown's hundreds of garment factories were replaced by numerous banks to take advantage of Chinese Americans' savings but what was there to replace the automobile factories in Detroit ? )

Afghanistan can be extremely valuable for attacking Red [Fascist] China with from a different vantage point and new front ( the U.S. Army needs to have something high and dry to do to get at those far inland sanctuaries of the enemies while the U.S. Navy is doing the wet work on another front ). As for the airport, a rental fee may be appropriate for the days of usage stretching beyond the agreed-upon date if necessary.

Taliban needs money to shore up their takeover of Afghanistan to form a real service-providing government to the Afghan people, SARS-CoV-2 vaccinations being one of the vital services in addition to clean potable water, electricity, foods, sanitary sewage discharge, etc. Iraq "fell through the cracks" due to the unpaid [fired] civil servants turning into insurgents actively attacking and damaging the country's infrastructure to create hell for the Iraqis to demonstrate the incompetence of the U.S.-backed Coalition Provisional Authority which had an inexperienced [naïve civilian] Bushit appointee leading it initially after Bushit's "Mission Accomplished."

Bushit families' oil business interest might have something to do with why they wanted an incompetent leader to head up the reconstruction of Iraq. A puppet doesn't need to be competent because a competent leader may very well throw off the puppet master's control arising from oil interest. The insurgencies "won" by preventing reconstruction. Indeed the U.S. Military left by the end of 2011 but what a mess ensued with ISIL taking over Mosul and much of the U.S. military equipment left behind for the Iraqis to defend their country with. Things eventually got so bad that the Iraqis "invited" the U.S. Military back to quell ISIL and keep it away. Iraqis also invited Iran's Shia militias into Iraq so there was the peculiar situation in which the parties helping Iraq were sometimes attacking each other as U.S. and Iran have been locked in a virtual state of war ever since the 1979 Iranian Revolution deposing the Shah. Iran probably wants to incorporate Iraq as a new province so Iraq may well be making a rational choice to have U.S. forces there to counter Iranian Shia militias. Lebanon got some Shia militias ( with Iran's help ). Looking at Lebanon over the decades changing from "Beirut streets are [figuratively] paved with gold" to the present crazy mess over there, I believe that the Iraqis made a pretty good rational choice ( the U.S., being so far away and with Bushit's empire-quest crude-oil drunkenness gone human-bloody red, is unlikely to colonize Iraq but Iran being next door probably can and is much likelier.)

In Kabul, an airport in good conditions is important for the quick delivery of vital supplies such as vaccines.

Karma exists. Reliable imposition of accountability matters, not just for the steely one, Stalin, but for the imaginary-Christos X one, too.

When I first arrived in New York, there were these subway signs: No Littering, No Spitting.

After the late 1970s hellish-years' musical fecundity, this sign was added: No Radio Playing.

I suspect that the No Spitting signs had been added after much immigration from where it's common to spit in the streets ( probably due to an old habit arising from living with much air pollution.)

Actually, all three types of notice were irrelevant to me because I was trained not to litter or spit since childhood. I also didn't have any desire or money to lug around an expensive ¿heavy? boom box precariously balanced upon my shoulder with one hand while twitching my body to the rhythm of the booming music ( yeah, I wasn't a dark-skinned male youth.)

在来自红色中国的难民安定下来之后,香港的经济迅速发展。 有才华的人与众不同。 当毛泽东的错误政策使数以千万计的中国人饿死时,那些定居香港的亡灵帮助了其中一些人。 尽快从红色中国逃出来。财富可以再次获得, 要自由则困难得多了。

Wow ! The U.S. was so fortunate to have Trump at the helm for this pandemic. Emperor M@ caused the deaths of 35-55 million Chinese but Trumpery had saved at least 40 million Americans demonstrating U.S. superiority to the World. 西方红, 太阳升。美国出了个川普理。 Is it all going to be conversions to military dictatorships from hereon in via coup d'etats ? M@ wrote, "Power comes out of the barrel of a gun." The U.S. population is blessed with the ownership of the most guns per capita ( probably achieving yet another all-time high after the January 6th, 2020, insurrection storming the Capitol for a ¿slaughter? )

Trump had control of "the Big Red Button" but never pressed it thus saving at least forty million American lives. He's a God-fearing devout Christian who held on to the Bible with his right hand "in order to grab them by their pussies." The Proud Boys were prepared for the Revolution on January 6th. Why did the people chant "Hang my pants?" Did some dude piss in their pants? There was no Fruit of the Boom anywhere nearby.
