Afghanistan & Suicide Squad!

The government sends the most dangerous supervillains in the world — Bloodsport, Peacemaker, King Shark, Harley Quinn and others — to the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Armed with high-tech weapons, they trek through the dangerous jungle on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Col. Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave.

I can’t help but see the obvious connection between the events of the new edition of the Suicide Squad series, and what is happening in Afghanistan right now.

In the film, the United States ally with a dictatorial regime in one of the countries of its southern neighbor Latin America for a single interest, to preserve dangerous technology coming from space, and to keep it isolated on foreign lands, and once the need for that is no longer needed, that alliance is immediately dispensed with and that country goes to hell, nor It does matter how much chaos, murder, and bloodshed this small country will be.

The United States and its allies are currently making an announced withdrawal from Afghanistan (a very fragile state) after nearly twenty years of occupation (immediately after 9/11), without any carelessness about the re-fall of the country to the Taliban (whose forces are approaching as you are reading this post from its capital, Kabul).

In fact, the American cowboy does not care about democracy, nor human values, and only understands the language of green dollars, and direct interests, and sells their allies at the first bend in the road.

Dealing with American politicians is essentially a “suicide” job, a big joke, just like the movie.
