Top 5 winners and losers of 9/11! ! !

Original work: Niu Danqin, Source: Sina News, Source: This day completely changes the world! The top five winners and losers of 9/11

Time makes you grow old, a year Another year. In a flash, 20 years have passed since 9/11.

If we look back at the most important events of the 21st century so far, in my opinion, there are no more than five things:

9/11 Terrorist Attack, International Financial Crisis,

COVID-19,

Color Revolution,

p>

The east rises and the west falls (the rise of China).

The benevolent sees the benevolence, and the wise sees the wisdom, but no matter how it is arranged, it cannot be denied that the 9/11 incident has completely changed the world.

This largest-scale terrorist attack in history completely destroyed the invincibility of Americans. The economic landmark of the United States - the World Trade Center was completely destroyed. The symbol of military power, the Pentagon, was also attacked.

Those who commit strong beauty will be punished even if they are far away.

Following horrific retaliation, Bush Jr. immediately launched the war in Afghanistan, and then, in one go, turned the war into Iraq. From Central Asia to the Middle East, the regimes of many countries have been overthrown, a large number of soldiers have been killed in the battlefield, and more civilians have been displaced and even massacred.

9/11 changed America, changed the world, and, of course, changed China.

911 incident was also the beginning of my career. The first interview in my life was in Afghanistan, in 2001. The joys and sorrows are indescribable.

Looking back at this incident 20 years later, it can be clearly seen that there are winners who seized the opportunity and made a fortune, and there are losers who have been impacted and become a losing country. , Of course, 20 years is enough time for winners and losers to change each other, during which there are valuable experiences and more painful lessons.

At the node of the 20th anniversary, revise the previous article, at least five winners and losers:

1Israel

Israel is the winner. 2001 was, 2021 can be said to be.

After 911, anti-terrorism has become the main theme of the world, completely changing the geopolitical situation in Israel. Israel took the opportunity to take the boat, and Hamas's bombing attack was naturally attributed to terrorist acts.

Subsequently, the Middle East fell into continuous wars, and some of Israel's former strong enemies, such as Syria, Libya, Iraq, etc., collapsed one after another. After Trump came to power, he was extremely partial to Israel, and even moved the embassy to Jerusalem and brokered one Arab country after another to establish diplomatic relations with Israel.

Even if Biden takes office, the situation will not change. Since its founding more than 70 years ago, Israel, which has been surrounded by the Arabian ocean, should have never felt more secure than it is now.

Of course, the Taliban is coming back, and it is also reminding Israel: some forces cannot be completely eliminated, cannot quell the hatred of the Arabs, and become a life-and-death enemy with Iran. Israel can really Is it always safe?

2Russia

For Putin, 9/11 An important respite.

After the disintegration of the Soviet Union, Russia and the West had a honeymoon, but after Putin came to power, Russia became the main opponent of the West. With NATO expanding eastward and bombing the Yugoslavia, Russia faces a strong squeeze from the United States.

After the 911 incident, the United States suddenly discovered that the biggest enemy was not Russia, but terrorists. Putin also weighed the situation, supported the United States in countering terrorism, and voluntarily surrendered several military bases in Central Asia.

Russia and the United States ushered in a short honeymoon. While the United States was busy fighting against terrorism, Russia relied on the oil bull market, the treasury was full, the people's livelihood improved, and the regime was stable, and finally began to walk out of the shadow of the disintegration of the Soviet Union, and had the confidence and strength to continue to challenge the West.

In recent years, despite the full force of Western sanctions and damage to Russia's power, its strength and potential should not be underestimated. Think more about it, Prussian has already gotten rid of Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama, and Trump, and does he care about one more Biden?

3Iran

Iran, the country America hates most in the Middle East.

The Tehran hostage incident made Reagan disgraced. The recent U.S. withdrawal is so embarrassing, more or less, it has the influence of the Tehran incident. The United States is afraid that the Americans who stay behind will become the hostages of the Taliban...

But the 9/11 incident The result seems to be helping Iran.

On the surface, the U.S. army went straight into Afghanistan and then into Iraq, causing Iran to be attacked by the enemy. But in fact, the United States is really making wedding dresses for others, and it can be said that it has helped Iran create a new diplomatic situation.

You must know that in Iraq, it was the enemy Sunni Saddam Hussein who used to be in power; now, it is the Shiite ally who was in exile in Iran. The Syrian civil war has made Iran a staunch supporter of the Bashar regime.

As for the war in Afghanistan, the Taliban overthrown by the United States belongs to the conservative Sunni faction and has always been at odds with Iran. Of course, now that the Taliban is back in power, Iran also faces new challenges. But it's better than having an American military base beside it.

4India

Last year, India was a big winner; but this year, it is somewhat doubtful, but let’s put it on the list.

A very simple thing, after the fall of the Taliban, which country has influence on the streets of Afghanistan?maximum?

Russia, USA, China? neither.

I have worked in Kabul for a while, and one feeling is: cheap goods, of course, are made in China the most; but the influence on the street is India—— Indian video discs are everywhere. Afghans like watching Indian movies and listening to Indian songs.

The Taliban was originally an ally of Pakistan and naturally a thorn in the side of India. The fall of the Taliban made India the happiest, and thus made a lot of money in Afghanistan. When Trump wanted to withdraw from Afghanistan, it was not Pakistan or China that he wanted to borrow most, but India.

I don't know, the development of the situation is jaw-dropping. Therefore, when the Taliban comes back to power, the most anxious is the United States, followed by India.

The first 19 years were all winners, but in the last year, the chess game suddenly changed. India, who thinks itself as the winner, probably hasn't gotten over it yet.

5China

For the past 20 years, the US has been busy fighting wars and China has been busy building. US hard power and soft power are damaged, but China has emerged as the world's second largest economy.

Therefore, in the eyes of many Americans, China is the biggest winner, or more precisely, China is the first beneficiary of the international geopolitical upheaval in the post-9/11 era. .

Recall that in 2001, Sino-US relations were once tense, and the plane collision in the South China Sea almost brought the two countries to the brink of war. However, the sudden 9/11 incident changed all this. Anti-terrorism has become the top priority of the United States, and the United States has to seek help from China.

Of course, China also took the time to adjust its relations with the United States quickly. Dramatically, Sino-US relations began a 180-degree turn, entering the most honeymoon period in 20 years.

In 2008, Bush Jr., on the eve of his resignation, took his whole family to Beijing to watch the Olympic Games with great interest. It is estimated that such a scene will not happen in the short term.

But this morning, I saw a passage from an expert, and I think it is still very true: China's rise has nothing to do with the war in Afghanistan or Iraq itself, and the relative decline of the United States But it has to do with the war there and its enormous cost.

This is actually the price of military hard work!

America's "War on Terrorism", how many young soldiers were killed and how many were made The tragedy of "Poor Wuding Riverside Bone, still a person in a spring boudoir's dream"!

1 Afghanistan

This is the biggest loser, no one.

Even if the U.S. war in Afghanistan fails completely, it does not change the fact that Afghanistan is the biggest loser.

It is also a bit injustice to say that the Taliban's policy was very extreme at the beginning, and they also destroyed the Bamiyan Buddha, but after all, it is not terrorism. It's just too righteous, what tribal tradition to follow, bin Laden is a friend, and a friend came to flee, how could he be driven out or handed over to an enemy?

But the United States did not listen to the explanation and immediately went to war. You know, the Taliban had basically quelled the civil war at that time, but the United States had completely smashed Afghanistan, and it took 20 years for a dozen.

Today, when people count the war in Afghanistan, more American casualties are counted. Although there are many, there are only more than 2,000 people.

But what about the Afghans? That is the greatest suffering in the world. Ten million Afghans became refugees, nearly 200,000 Afghans were killed, and 72 percent of Afghans were living below the poverty line.

From 2016 to 2020 alone, 1,600 Afghan children were killed by NATO troops. not long ago kabIn the bombing of the airport in Seoul, yes, 13 US troops were killed, but more than 100 Afghans were killed. What is more pitiful, many people were shot to death by the US military indiscriminately.

This is truly a human tragedy.

2Iraq

Saddam felt even more wronged. He survived Bush's first Gulf War, I don't want to meet the stunned young Bush Jr. again.

After Bush defeated the Taliban, he made a random excuse and began to look for Saddam's bad luck. Three to five and two, Saddam, who ruled Iraq for decades, was finally sent to the gallows.

It's just that once the Pandora's box is opened, the situation can't be cleaned up. First there is Al Qaeda, then the Islamic State, and there are also mutual bloodbaths between Sunnis and Shiites. Iraq People want to cry but have no tears, just got rid of the dictatorship, but ushered in the disintegration of the country and unprecedented war.

By the way, the fate of Saddam and Gaddafi once prompted other countries to desperately seek nuclear weapons, which has laid a hidden danger for the crisis in Northeast Asia.

But what does the US gain?

3 Pakistan

India Pakistan India Ba, what an enemy. Former winners are becoming losers; former losers seem to be winners again.

Be aware that Pakistan has been under enormous pressure from 9/11 for the past 20 years.

After the 9/11 incident, the United States was going to attack Afghanistan. Bush threatened that Pakistan would blow it back to the Stone Age if it did not cooperate.

In desperation, Pakistan had no choice but to board the pirate ship of the United States, and its ally, the Taliban, was tragically abandoned. Afghanistan has also changed from a friendly neighbor to a kind of enemy. To make matters worse, the war in Afghanistan spilled over, a large number of refugees poured into Pakistan, the border areas of Pakistan were out of control, and terrorist attacks became the norm.

The September 11 incident has put Pakistan in a difficult position, but the West has always questioned Pakistan's incompetence in counter-terrorism, and the United States has even despised Pakistan's sovereignty. .

What we call Pakistan iron is considered by the West as a failed country. But finally, with the withdrawal of the United States and the return of the Taliban to power, the situation in Pakistan has improved, and it is possible to take a breather.

4The West

Not just the US, but the entire West, is the loser.

After the 9/11 incident, the West shared the same hatred as the enemy.

What about the final result?

The lives of young soldiers, the loss of a lot of money, the moral taint, the pain and hostility of the Afghans, and in the end, the Taliban is still in power.

Taking Germany as an example, in order to follow the United States, Germany sent the largest post-war army to Afghanistan, but it also paid a heavy price, about 60 German soldiers forever Stayed in Afghanistan, not to mention a lot of money.

Let's not talk about the United Kingdom. Nearly 500 people died. It is indeed an American hardcore. There is also Australia, which is more brutal than Americans in Afghanistan, but also hated by Afghans for its brutality. Nearly 40 people died in Afghanistan.

In the cemetery of empires, not only empires such as Great Britain, the Soviet Union, and the United States are buried, but also a bunch of empires' younger brothers.

Not to mention, the counter-terrorism efforts have not been successful. More and more terrorist organizations are fighting in Afghanistan, and the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain and other countries have suffered tragic terrorist attacks one after another.

Also, finally fromThe hasty withdrawal of Afghanistan has become a moral crisis for the West. In addition, how to resettle a large number of Afghan Muslim refugees is a new problem that the West must face next.

5 US

In the first few years, the United States was indeed unchallenged, and it could fight whoever it wanted. Attacking the Taliban on the left, slashing bin Laden on the right, and hanging Saddam by the way.

But what about the result?

It's the same joke, said very vividly:

If you sometimes feel like you're not getting anywhere,

Then don't forget, there is a country called the United States,

changed 4 presidents,

Two trillion dollars spent,

2000+ soldiers died,

played 20 years of war,

successfully changed the Afghan regime from Taliban to Taliban.

There is no doubt that the US military left with disgrace. Especially in the final evacuation, 13 US soldiers died, the largest casualty of US troops stationed in Afghanistan in 10 years. The Taliban have obtained Black Hawk helicopters, Humvees, M16 submachine guns, etc. sent by the US "transport captain"...

Shame, shame. In Putin's words, America's 20 years of war, the result is zero, if not negative.

But it's just the war in Afghanistan, don't forget, there's the war in Iraq, Syria, not to mention the American-style anti-epidemic with more deaths.

In the past 20 years, many Americans believe that the biggest mistake the United States has made is that it has been involved in one war after another, and all kinds of nonsense, while China has It is peaceful development and making a fortune in silence.

911 changed America. The world has completely changed.

History has too many painful lessons. More than 1,000 years ago, Du Mu said in "A Fang Gong Fu": Qin people have no time to mourn for themselves and others to mourn, and the latter do not learn from it, so that the latter will mourn the latter again.

Life, how many 20 years?

The lessons of post-911, there are at least three points, applicable to the United States, but also to China and the world:

First, we must not be soft on terrorism. The result of being soft-handed will be a big disaster and become a serious problem for the confidants.

Secondly, no matter how big a country is, if it is warlike, it will perish; although the world is at peace, if one forgets to fight, it will be in danger. Can't ignore it!

Third, thirty years Hedong, thirty years Hexi. A little careless, the previous winners may all be losers. The lesson is too deep.
