Transport de fortifications
Comme pour donner du goût à la cuisine sécuritaire du moment - illustrée par les jolies frises de T-walls qui se trimbalent dans la ville vers les lieux à transformer en bunkers - les medias décortiquent la nouvelle mission de l'OTAN en Afghanistan et assaisonnent celle qui se termine. Une certaine Svetlana de l'agence Sputnik - ça ne s'invente pas et frise le bobard - m'a adressé depuis Moscou une liste de questions avec demande de commentaires... Menu fretin je suis, mais prise tout de même.

Quitte à passer à la moulinette de la guerre de l'information, ma contribution est aussi bien ici dans sa saveur originelle et je vous la livre donc en primeur...: As was previously proved - and the Soviet army experienced it in Afghanistan, no armed intervention can defeat an insurgency with popular support. Although the Taliban are not well regarded by the Afghan people - who remember their time in power - the insurgency feeds on popular resentment. More than a decade of international focus on state-building lacked tangible results for life improvements: power outages are a daily curse; education is for a happy few; each individual relies on its kin for emergency support.
The NATO operatives - with their obsession on terrorism - failed to understand that Afghanistan is a margin area, a place on the world grid where empires meet, overlap and fight. The people living here know that a central state emerges with support from a faraway foreign power center, only to crumble when its motivations and resources are exceeded by those of another power center from another part of the planet. Living in this area implies a never-ending security stress, reliance on strong survival skills and the necessity to fight to defend one's kin. Every occurrence of 'collateral damage' increases the insurgency by a whole family.
Making the world more secure would start with investing in development in Afghanistan - profitable for all neighbouring countries - rather than in the military - profitable only for one side's security concerns. It would start with solving problems arising from imperial competition, such as the differing railway gauges on each border (Iranian, Russian, Chinese, Indian). But world leaders find it easier to act tribal than to act in cooperation.

Prise de vue pour prise de vue, je me suis livrée tout à l'heure à un exercice sur chat et tapis persan(s), décohérencés ou non. Les préférez-vous en crise ou en p(o)ause ? Cela a-t-il un rapport avec le sujet précédent ?
