Afghanistan – A 20 Year War For Nothing
This week, one of America’s greatest failures has finally come to a head. After twenty years of war, hundreds of thousandsdead, trillions of dollars lost, the United States of America has finally pulled out of Afghanistan- leading to the prompt takeover of the entire country by the Taliban. There was no negotiation, no compromises, no conditions. It’s completely the opposite of a Jackpot Capital Bonus. There is no other way of saying it: The United States lost, completely and utterly.
The Afghanistan people have paid the price of one of the longest wars in history. Most wars throughout history are a series of battles and conflicts that are collated together and titled as a single “war”, such as the “Hundred Years War”. In contrast, America has been fighting in Afghanistan continuously since 2001.
And it was all for nothing.
9/11 and the Initial Invasion
All this leads one to ask, why the hell were we there in the first place? The answer takes us back to 9/11. Infamously, three thousand Americans died when Islamic Terrorists hijacked several planes and crashed them into the Twin Towers. An additional plane crashed into the Pentagon, and another crashed on route to Washington DC prematurely because the passengers fought back.
In response, America initiated the “War on Terror”. American troops invaded Afghanistan, where the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda were supposedly hiding under the protection of the Taliban government. Al-Qaeda, and its infamous leader, Osama Bin Ladin, cited US support of Israel, the presence of US troops in Saudi Arabia, and sanctions against Iraq as justifications for their atrocities.
So, the question is, why were we in Afghanistan? For a long time, the answer seemed to be that the United States was seeking justice for the thousands murdered in the name of Islamic Terrorism by hunting down those responsible. The problem was… it didn’t happen. The Taliban government was toppled, sure, and Al-Qaeda is gone… technically… but it didn’t last. Al-Qaeda became Isis, and the Taliban returned to power immediately after the US left.
In fact, the United States killed Osama Bin Ladin back in 2011- and he sure as hell wasn’t in Afghanistan. He was hiding out in Pakistan, our supposed “ally”, living the dream right up until Seal Team Six put him six feet under.
Mission accomplished, right? So, ten years later, why were we still in Afghanistan, the country that wasn’t even hiding the terrorists anymore?
An Then What?
To me, I cannot find a single, justifiable reason as to why we stayed there. Ostensibly, we’re helping the Afghanistan Government rebuild. In reality, we were propping it up. Anecdotal reports from soldiers who fought there described the Afghanistan soldiers as “cowardly, addicted to drugs, undisciplined…” There were stories of Afghanistan soldiers selling their guns for drugs.
A Pew survey from when the United States was still in control showed that 99% of Afghanistan civilians wanted to live under Sharia law, 96% say converting to Islam is a duty, 94% say the wife is obligated to obey the husband, 85% say stoning should be the penalty for adultery, 79% say death for apostates, and 39% believe suicide bombings are justified.
In other words, we accomplished nothing on any front. If we were they to build up an Afghanistani government, that obviously failed. If we were there to change the hearts and minds of these people, to turn them away from this radical ideology, we failed miserably at that too. To do so would require an active condemnation of the tenants of Islam themselves, rather than just shooting the “extremists”, something which the Western world seems terrified to do. Any Western leader that even tries is ostracized by the political establishment, no matter how many victims of the Jihad are left in their wake because of it.
In 2020, when President Donald Trump began negotiating a peace deal with the Taliban. In February of 2020, he agreed to pull out US troops from Afghanistan if the Taliban committed to halting all attacks against US, NATO, or other Foreign Military Forces. A deadline of May 1st was set, and everything seemed good for a while.
Then the election came through, and Joe Biden ended up in office. One of the things Joe Biden immediately declared was that the troops would be staying past the May 1st deadline. He cited logistical reasons for this delay and promised that the troops would be out by September.
Golly gee, I can’t see anything wrong with that plan.
The Taliban, justifiable pissed, vowed that they would renew the attacks if the agreement wasn’t held. Well, the agreement wasn’t held. The Taliban made no deals, no conditions, and no compromises. And this week, the US troops were finally removed, under fire, while the Taliban swarmed the propped up Government, leaving Afghanistan in an even worse state than the one we had found it in (The Taliban hadn’t conquered everything back then).
It would be completely justified to call this the modern Saigon. At the end of the Vietnam War, the United States pulled out of that country via helicopters at Saigon, under fire, and limped home. That was forty years ago. There is a famous photo of the US helicopter taking off from the embassy. Jump to 2021, and the US forces had to flee Kabul, via helicopter, under fire. There’s even a similar photo, just to rub it in further.
At long last, we’re finally out. Not triumphantly, not with a bang, but with a pathetic whimper, with our tails between our legs.
Twenty years of pointless war is going to hurt far more than our wallets. According to AP News, this war has cost:• 2500 American Servicemen• Nearly 4000 US contractors• 66,000 Afghan Military / Police• 1500 Allied Servicemen• 47,000 Afghan Civilians• 500 Aid Workers• 72 Journalists
For comparison, the Taliban lost 50,000 men.
Oh, and obviously, all this was on the taxpayer dollar too. The AP News tallies the total debt of the war to number around two trillion dollars, with the interest costs adding an additional 6.5 trillion dollars by 2050. Gotta love deficit spending.
All this to fight an enemy who wasn’t even there, to provide help to a population that didn’t want it, and to overthrow a regime our “allies” were protecting.
We have yet to see the long-reaching consequences of this war, but there are some more immediate effects that are already coming to a head. The first being the fall of our propped-up Afghanistan government. The Taliban basically waltzed into Kabul without firing a single shot once the US was gone. There are horrifying videos of Afghanistani civilians swarming the airports, and trying, in their desperation, to cling to the outside of airplanes as they’re taking off in order to escape.
The Taliban has already started implementing the Islamic Code of law. For example, they’ve been going door to door, informing everyone that any girl above the age of fifteen is going to be assigned a husband.
How this will affect the Western World has yet to be seen. There could be another wave of refugees and immigrants who will soon be pouring across Europe and the West. Will the Taliban continue to fight the US and the West in other parts of the world? Who knows at this point. I’d guess the odds are quite probable.
Then there’s Pakistan’s role in all of this. They hid Osama Bin Ladin for nearly a decade. They airlifted the Taliban out when the US had them surrounded. They funded the terrorists and provided them with arms and munitions, and God knows what else. I’m not suggesting yet another middle-eastern war, but dammit, there should be some sanctions on the bastards at the very least.
You know, since before I was alive, the term “Military-industrial-complex” has been thrown around. For a long time, I considered it to be stupid. I put it in the same category as “George Bush is responsible for 9/11” kind of theories. I mean, were there really people in the West so willing to throw away US lives for the sake of profit? I thought the West was better than that.
However, as I’ve grown older, and hopefully wiser, and hopefully not just more cynical, I’ve realized that, yes, there are people with so little morals. There are people in the world who can and will say or do anything if it keeps them in power for just another day.
Do I believe that George Bush invaded Iraq for oil? No. I think he and many Americans truly wanted to avenge those that died on 9/11. However, as the war dragged on- far away and out of sight for most Americans, politicians, and people within these inner circles began to wheel and deal. No mustache-twirling villainy, perhaps, but a moral compromise here, a compromise there, money spread around… and you end up with a group of power elites each looking the other way as the other does compromises and compromises until there is no moral compass left in any of them. These kinds of people are too involved, too compromised, to see who gets hurt, to see the bigger picture… and, perhaps, they don’t want to.
What Material Makes Fire Resistant Workwear?
Fire-resistant workwear is a type of clothing designed to protect workers from the hazards of fire, heat, and other related risks in the workplace. It’s an essential component of personal protective equipment (PPE). The law requires the workwear to be fire-resistant in industries where workers are prone to fire risks.
Companies often use branded apparel programs to provide their employees with fire-resistant workwear that is both functional and stylish. However, not all types of workwear are created equal, and choosing suitable materials and manufacturing techniques is essential to ensure the highest level of protection.
Common Materials Used in Fire-Resistant Workwear
Fire-resistant workwear is made from various materials designed to protect workers from the hazards of fire and heat. Here are some of the most common materials used in fire-resistant workwear:
- Cotton: Cotton is a natural fiber used in fire-resistant workwear. It’s soft, comfortable, and breathable, making it ideal for clothing use. Cotton fabrics can be treated with fire-resistant chemicals to enhance their protective properties.
- Wool: Wool is another natural fiber commonly used in fire-resistant workwear. It’s naturally flame-resistant, meaning it does not need chemical treatments to provide protection. Wool is also warm and comfortable, making it ideal for cold environments.
- Aramid fibers: They are synthetic fibers known for their high strength and heat resistance. They are common in fire-resistant workwear, particularly in high-heat environments. Aramid fibers include materials such as Kevlar and Nomex.
- Modacrylic: Modacrylic is a synthetic fiber used in fire-resistant workwear. It’s flame-resistant and has a high resistance to heat. Modacrylic fibers are blended with other fibers to enhance their protective properties.
- Nomex: Nomex is an aramid fiber brand widely used in fire-resistant workwear. It’s known for its high heat resistance and durability. Firefighters, military personnel, and other workers exposed to high heat and flames use Nomex in their clothing.
These materials are used in various combinations and blend to create fire-resistant workwear that is protective and comfortable. The specific materials used will depend on the level of protection required, the type of work, and the work environment.
Manufacturing Fire-Resistant Workwear
Manufacturing fire-resistant workwear involves several vital steps to ensure the clothing meets safety standards. Here is an overview of the manufacturing process:
- Material selection: The first step in manufacturing fire-resistant workwear is selecting the appropriate materials. The materials must withstand high temperatures and flames while providing comfort and durability.
- Design and pattern making: The next step is to create a design and pattern for the clothing. The design must consider the specific needs of the workers and the environment in which they will be working.
- Cutting and sewing: Once the design and pattern have been created, the fabric is cut into the appropriate sizes and shapes. The pieces are then sewn together to create the final product.
- Quality control: Workers check for quality control checks before distributing clothing to ensure it meets the necessary safety standards.
Proper manufacturing techniques are crucial for maintaining the fire-resistant properties of the clothing. For example, if the apparel is not sewn together correctly, it could create gaps in the material, allowing flames to penetrate.
Manufacturers must follow strict guidelines and standards when producing fire resistant (FR) workwear. It includes using certified materials, following recommended manufacturing processes, and conducting regular quality control checks.
Advancements in Fire-Resistant Workwear
Advancements in fire-resistant workwear have led to the development of new materials and manufacturing techniques offering improved protection and comfort for workers in hazardous environments.
Here is an overview of some recent advancements:
- Advanced materials: New Kevlar and carbon fiber have been developed, offering improved heat and flame resistance. These materials are also more durable and lightweight than cotton and wool.
- Nanotechnology: Nanotechnology has created fabrics resistant to heat, flames, and chemicals. These fabrics are also more comfortable and breathable than traditional materials.
- Advanced manufacturing techniques: New techniques such as laser cutting and ultrasonic welding have been developed, allowing for more precise and efficient production of fire-resistant workwear.
- Comfort and fit: Manufacturers are now focusing on improving the comfort and fit of fire-resistant workwear, making the clothing more breathable and flexible. It can help workers stay comfortable and productive throughout their workday.
By using advanced materials and manufacturing techniques, you can protect workers from the hazards of fire and heat. This added layer of protection can reduce injury risk and increase safety in hazardous work environments.
Fire-resistant workwear is a crucial investment in worker safety and can help companies comply with safety regulations while avoiding costly fines and lawsuits. By using high-quality, properly fitting, and comfortable fire-resistant clothing, workers can be better protected from the hazards of fire and heat, reducing the risk of injury and increasing overall safety in the workplace.
Preservation of Natural Resources is Essential for Energy Transfer’s Operations, Says Kelcy Warren
Energy Transfer, a firm that operates in 41 different states, is well-known for the extensive pipeline and energy holdings network that it maintains. But what some people may not know is that the Penn Virginia Operating Co., LLC, which is wholly owned by the parent company of Energy Transfer, is in charge of the management of about 675,000 acres of property in West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana and Virginia. This part of the operations includes the business of selling timber at retail, managing royalties from oil and gas production, and leasing land for use in agricultural and industrial endeavors.
The depletion of the mining sector in certain places has resulted in economic decline. However, under the leadership of Executive Chairman and co-founder Kelcy Warren, Energy Transfer’s Natural Resources Operations have helped to reverse this trend in important areas. This work encompasses 3,500 acres of land used for the cultivation of corn and soybeans, in addition to 1,200 acres used for the keeping of cattle.
Kelcy Warren states with great pride that Energy Transfer is one of the largest landowners in West Virginia, and that the operations of the company generate a significant amount of tax income for the state. He further commented that they acknowledge the weight of their role in administering natural resource operations in four different states and are devoted to conserving and restoring the region’s natural beauty.
Preserving Nature through Collaboration
“The preservation of our land is of great significance to us,” says Kelcy Warren. “Our certified foresters are responsible for administering forestry initiatives, tracking the growth of trees, and controlling timber activities on the nearly 249,000 acres of forest located in Kentucky, Virginia, and West Virginia. We make certain that all timber operations remain productive so that harvesting does not surpass the rate of development of the woodlands.
For a long time, we have worked with a variety of entities that have utilized our land for a multitude of objectives, ranging from college research to National Guard drills, and recreational activities such as clay shooting and hunting leases. Additionally, we have partnered with state and local governments in order to plan for industrial development which can generate new jobs and foster economic growth.
For over three decades, we’ve collaborated with Virginia Tech University to investigate the restoration of plant and tree types on land that was used for coal production as a component of the 1,000-acre Powell River Project. This endeavor has had an impact on the regulations and strategies for reclamation laid out by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.”
Farming of lavender on soil that has been previously used for mining purposes is becoming increasingly popular. This type of agricultural practice has been embraced in many parts of the world, and is seen as a way to bring life back to places that have been impacted by the mining industry.
The Appalachian Botanical Company, founded by Jocelyn Sheppard in 2018, is an example of Energy Transfer’s extraordinary leased land accomplishments. Set on reclaimed coal land in West Virginia, The Appalachian Botanical Company cultivates lavender and nurtures bee habitats, then turns their harvests into essential oils, lotions, and other health and wellness products. The company strives to accomplish two objectives: to offer a viable, financially secure way to restore mining areas and to create jobs for people with difficulties finding traditional employment that pays more than minimum wage.
The hardiness of lavender enables it to thrive even in the rocky ground typically found at former coal mining sites. This type of plant is able to survive without much water, is pest-resistant, and does not need a lot of fertilizer. The mining organization has remediated the area and conducted tests to confirm that the water and soil on the premises are pure and free of pollutants.
The Appalachian Botanical Company is presently cultivating 75 acres, and intends to expand. This offers a valuable opportunity for work in a region that has endured the displacement of countless jobs in the coal industry over the past decade. Sheppard has a long-term plan in mind, hoping to have a positive influence on the local area and become the greatest commercial-scale provider of lavender in the United States.

Steps In Filing a Wrongful Death Claim
The loss of a loved one is a life-changing event that often leads to a profound amount of grief. The pain of this loss can feel even greater if the cause of death was something that could have been prevented. When a loved one has died due to the negligence of another, the need to seek justice can feel overwhelming. In such a situation, you may be able to do just that and get the justice your loved one deserves by hiring a lawyer to file a wrongful death claim. To file a wrongful death claim, it’s important to understand how the process works and the associated procedures.
How To File a Wrongful Death Claim
- Determining Eligibility To File: in a wrongful death claim, there is a chain of eligibility defining who has the right to do so based on availability. The first right for filing a claim falls to the spouse of the deceased, then children, and parents, and if none of the previously mentioned parties are available, the executor of the estate may file on behalf of the next of kin.
- Defining Wrongful Death: a wrongful death is accidental in nature and due to the negligence of a third party. Common causes include car accidents, sports accidents, medical malpractice, construction accidents, assault, workplace injuries, defective products, and others. A general rule is that if the accident was non-fatal, then a personal injury claim could be filed.
- Pre-Trial: in this step, your attorney will take the needed steps to bring your case to trial. This can include the filing of needed paperwork, setting up an estate if needed, the collection of evidence, verification that a negligent party owed a duty of care they did not meet, and proper notification of involved parties about the case and the pursuit of legal action.
- Negotiations and Settlements: not every wrongful death case goes to trial. In many cases, to avoid a trial, the other party will offer a settlement. This should be given full consideration as even with strong evidence, trials are stressful and time-consuming. Your lawyer will negotiate the terms of the offer and provide you with all the information needed to make a sound choice.
- Filing a Lawsuit: this step only occurs if your case is going to trial. If negotiations and the chance at a settlement fall through, or you cannot come to an acceptable agreement, the next step is court proceedings. Your lawyer will handle the paperwork for you and the other party will be properly served.
- The Litigation Process: litigation is an involved process and your case does not immediately go to trial. During litigation, your lawyer will continue negotiating with the other side to see if a settlement is possible. Information will also be shared between both sides during the discovery process. Also, a mediator will step in a final attempt to reach a settlement if disagreements continue. If all attempts at settlement fail, your case will then go to trial.
If a family member has passed away due to the fault of another, you deserve a day to court to fight for justice on their behalf. With the assistance of an attorney, you can rest assured that the involved parties will be held accountable, and a conclusion will be reached either in settlement or, if needed, a trial.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Pre-Painted Fenders
Pre-painted fenders are a popular option for car owners who want to replace their old, damaged fenders with a new, fresh look. Pre-painted fenders come already painted in the same color as your car, saving you the hassle of having to find a paint shop and getting your fenders painted. However, like any other product, they have both advantages and disadvantages. In this article, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of painted car fenders.
Advantages of Pre-Painted Automotive Fenders:
- Saves Time and Money: Pre-painted fenders save time and money because you don’t have to take your car to a paint shop to get the fenders painted. This means that you can install them right away, without having to wait for the paint job to be completed.
- Color Match: Pre-painted fenders are painted in the same color as your car, ensuring a perfect color match. This means that your car will look as good as new, without any visible signs of repairs.
- Convenience: Painted fenders are more convenient than non-painted fenders because you don’t have to go through the process of painting them yourself or finding a paint shop to do it for you. They also come ready to install, which means you can have your car back on the road in no time.
- Quality: Pre-painted fenders are typically of high quality, as they are painted using the same paint and techniques as the factory. This ensures that the paint job is durable, long-lasting, and looks as good as new.
Disadvantages of Pre-Painted Car Fenders:
- Limited Selection: Pre-painted fenders are only available in a limited selection of colors, which may not match the color of your car exactly. This means that you may have to compromise on the color of your car or pay extra to get a custom paint job.
- Cost: Pre-painted fenders are more expensive than non-painted, which may not be feasible for those on a budget. You may also have to pay extra for shipping and handling, which can increase the overall cost.
- Fit: Pre-painted fenders may not fit your car perfectly, especially if you have a rare or unique model. This can result in a poor fit, which can affect the appearance and functionality of the fenders.
In conclusion, pre-painted fenders have both advantages and disadvantages. While they save time and money and offer a perfect color match and convenience, they are also more expensive, have limited color options, and may have quality control issues. Ultimately, the decision to purchase pre-painted fenders depends on your individual needs, budget, and preferences.
