Never sell any arms to Muslims

Reader comment on item: Reflections on the Debacle in Afghanistan: Interview
in response to reader comment: Afghanistan was the unwinnable war

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Sep 6, 2021 at 22:30

Dear Dr Pipes, United States spent 2 decades and tried to raise an Army for the Afghans. This army did not try to win a war that came to them. They did not even fire a shot. And, the weapons that were made available to them fell into enemy hands. I contend that the Army that the US raised never had any intentions to fight. The, so called, Afghan soldiers lived on the US salary for free and had fun for two decades. United States of America was duped flat and square.

The moral of the story is that the only military engagement that non-Muslims should have with Muslims is to defend us against them. In particular, we should never fight a war alongside them and we should never sell any arms to Islamic sources. I have hardly ever seen a weapon in a Muslim hand that has been put to a good use.
