Yellow Headed Concern

“Oh, what will happen now,” she asked because her newspaper told her to be concerned about the people of Afghanistan now that the USA was leaving.

She hadn’t been concerned about the people of Afghanistan for the past 20 years of bombs falling and hellfire missiles from drones wiping out homes, grandparents, children and a few neighbors and friends because a suspected militant was suspected of entering the home.

She hadn’t been concerned about the Afghans when the USA dropped the 10.000 kg Mother of All Bombs on Afghanistan to threaten and terrorize the people about what they could expect if they resisted the efforts of the USA to help them.

She hadn’t been concerned about the people when doors were kicked down in the middle of the night and mercenaries took the son for questioning, shot the father for protesting and raped the daughter for being attractive.

No. twenty years of occupation, destruction, terror, death, torture and depravation hadn’t awaken any concern, but now that the natives were about to defeat the super powerful aggressors and occupiers, her concern bubbles forth for the people about to be ruled by their own people, because her newspaper slapped a scary name on the liberators.

It seems her education never taught her that an empire always, without exception, paints their opponents in evil colors while decorating themselves in shiny goodness.

It seems her education never taught her about empires, but encouraged her to trust the information pouring down from imperial heights, turning her grey matter into obedient yellow.
