The US government excels at creating migration crises for other nations to deal with. The expected Afghan migration into Europe may be its biggest yet. From Finian Cunningham at strategic-culture.org:
Regarding the Biden administration and its unctuous professions of transatlantic unity, the European governments must be wondering… with friends like that who needs enemies?
President Joe Biden vowed “America is back” when he took office, meaning that Washington would realign with and respect European allies under its global leadership after the years of Trump discord.
The European political establishment swooned and cooed like dutiful debutantes apparently having Uncle Sam’s affections and patronage again.
How quickly indeed has that supposedly rosy relation between the U.S. and the Europeans been ruptured with bitter recriminations following the disastrous collapse in Afghanistan. The EU is scrambling to cope with the potential fallout of mass migration from the Central Asian country after the return to power of the Taliban.
This is the militant group that Washington and its NATO allies spent two decades fighting at the cost of hundreds of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars – only for the militants to seize power amid a total collapse of a U.S.-backed regime in Kabul.
Yeah, America is back alright. Causing mayhem and political headaches for its supposed European partners.
