Afghanistan Lost

28 June 2021
Panama City, Panama
Mind burst, sans-edit

Just go back to 2006 and read my dozen major dispatches on losing the war in Afghanistan. At that time, millions of people regularly read my Iraq and Afghanistan. And at any one time, about half hated me or said I was wrong.

But now we can open the time capsule and see who was right and wrong on Iraq, Afghanistan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Japan-Korea relations, and Chinese information war.

Start with my 2005 archives. Imagine investing in my reports. Check my 2006 reports from Afghanistan: https://www.michaelyon-online.com/monthly-archive.htm

I finally slammed the door on Afghanistan in 2011. I never went back. I continued going into combat, but not in useless, wasted combat.

The idea that we are there to promote women’s rights is at best naive. We cannot even keep Atlanta, Portland, Chicago, or one square mile around the White House safe.

I just sent significant time in D.C. and witnessed up close the events on 06 January 2021.

The three top US military ‘leaders’ are Biden, Austin, and Milley. Three overt racists more concerned about ghosts than about those who burned neighborhoods across America last year, and will do again this year. Watch. Write it down. Come back a year from now and check my words.

2022 will be worse in the United States. I see no sign this is letting up. We have three racists in charge who are destroying the US military.

Now, if those who try to sell Afghanistan would change from the bullshit about women’s rights and democracy, and shift to what this actually is about: Economics, energy, and power projection — I might agree in full that having bases there is very important check against Iran, or one. And China and more. But they lie.

They lie like the Fauci-mask-lie. And Surgeon General Jerome Adams joined the same lies.

The United States military is melting from within. Milley was in a perfect position to take a stand and be fired or resign. But he chose to negotiate with the ones who wish to see him hang, and alienated people like me who until days ago was open to him.

America is famous for this. Predates us all. We are famous for lavishing gifts on those who attack us and crapping on supporters. This has been portrayed in movies, books, and I saw many people in Iraq, Afghanistan, Thailand, Hong Kong, and other places, say similar.

I published about a picnic I had in an Afghan village, a hundred miles from nearest US forces (Maybe 70…not sure), and I was with Tim Lynch in the village and the Balooch commander asked why we support Pashtun so much when they fight EVERYONE. Even other Pashtun. They are like brown-Scottish, and Scots and Afghans who know either know what I mean.

Funny thing is, I actually like Afghans on whole. And I realize we cannot change Afghanistan in any meaningful way with less than a century of effort. But there is something about even Pashtun that I very much like and respect. Such as that they put their lives on the line to protect their way of life. Like or not their way of life, I respect them.

And the Balooch commander, we were in the desert close to Iran, said half jokingly they had discussed attacking their American friends just to get quality attention.

Meanwhile, General Mark Milley rolls over and offers his throat. Milley could have said “To hell with this! America first! All races are equal! All people are equal in the eyes of our Creator and must be so in the eyes of the law!”

And in doing so, and getting fired and dragged from sea to shining sea through mud and fire, Mark Milley might have become President Milley and garner massive support. Likewise with SecDef Austin. But both proved morally weak. Gave it up. The pander to terrorists!

They pander to the very people who do not respect them will string them up given a chance, and they snub people like us, who would have supported them to the end if they were AMERICANS, not just US citizens. Americans believe in equality for EVERYONE.

Japanese pre-World War II were in similar predicament. Chinese waved Bibles and Americans would say, “those poor Chinese, they need our help,” and Japanese did not wave Bibles, but were open and desirous for relations until the Evil Roosevelt (the 2nd one — The first one, Teddy, was fantastic, and loved Japanese but mistrusted Russians aplenty!) — the Evil Roosevelt did his best to pick a fight with Japan. Japan, in desperation, foolishly took the bait and attacked at Pearl Harbor and across Asia. Americans, still victim to that World War II information war by Roosevelt and crew, still blame Japanese who also lost the information war in a huge way. (Japanese are the worst in the world at information war. Like teaching an elephant to fish. The Olympic medals for information war go to Chinese, Russians, Americans, and now Social Media who must be taken down.)

And thus we lost a perfect chance to ally with Japan against communists. China got America going against Japan, in large part by waving Bibles, and Japan simply sucks at information war. Then, and now. Japanese seem to think that if you just be good, the all knowing universe will know you are good.

Japan at the time was very anti-communist, but today is being mulched from within like United States. And believe it or not — Japanese Christians (about 1% of country) — are heavily communist.

How many American-born communist Christians do you know? I know zero. But Al Johnson and I flew to Japan and found Japanese communist Christians. Cannot make up this stuff.

When I meet a Christian or America or Panama or Thailand, I am far more likely to think this probably is a good person. In Japan, when I meet a Christian, I go “SHIELD’S UP CAPTAIN. SET PHASERS ON STUN.” This despite that of all groups on earth, I find Japanese as a whole to be most trustworthy.

Bottom line — I have to go get a silly PCR test now for flight to Africa with Chuck Holton. Masako Ganaha will fly back to Japan tomorrow. Chuck and I will miss her. I even saw Congressman Burgess Owens send Masako a note yesterday with much gratitude. Everyone loves Masako.

Masako has been very concerned about immigration issues, information war, and communists in Japan. American and Japanese who value their freedom must come together on a personal level. Go visit each other. Form personal relations. Exchange information and ideas.

We must face many Dragons, like these racists Biden, Austin, and Milley — who do the bidding of our enemies.

I must got. PCR test…more information war. Thank you for your support. Sorry no edit!

In Arizona...

…border is completely open over a surface area the size of Connecticut (tribal land) with fewer than twenty agents on patrol. No technology. No one manning the checkpoint for months. Biggest meth, fentanyl, and high caliber weapons (going south) transport lanes on the continent. The entire northern and southern borders are similar other than the show-places for media. This war will be intense, long, transformative.

Meanwhile, Chinese share such videos showing how to invade USA:

November 02, 2023

NOW, Mexico— DAY of the DEAD and “Vaccines” at front door of Walmart. Cannot make up this stuff.


Israel — China milking the cow:

1) Use the Israel/USA to clear out Gaza
2) Take the energy
3) Build the canal
4) Destroy USA/Europe and take it. Genocide across the Americas and take all the Americas. Clear out the Israelis and mass genocides across Africa, etc.

Lots, lots more. So many plays in motion. Central America is being taken.

Can take significant time but the ball is in motion

Important— I went to Groningen, NL in March warning they may shut Groningen gas field. Groningen is biggest gas field in Europe. And now they shut Groningen. This is in part to create famine by shutting down nitrogenous fertilizer production. Now they going for USA: https://foxnews.com/politics/un-delegates-circulate-petition-shut-down-us-natural-gas-production-global-climate-summit-kicks-off

Israel doing similar as America with information war suicide. Literally seem to be working overtime to make enemies in their neighborhood with people who will absolutely kill Israel when America cannot or will not help. Those days are coming. Israel has little longterm prospects.

Anthropological warfare is real. Israel is used to playing the game on many Americans but China is playing same.

Cooties Kill
Beware of Lice — the Government, and Typhus

29 March 2023
Yonezawa, Japan
Mind Dump, sans edit

This is important.  I am in a rush to meetings so this is sans edit:

I am in Yonezawa.  Scene of great historical famine.  I have come  by bullet train to study famine and a man named Yozan Uesugi.  Yozan was adept at spotting famine in advance and getting his people through famine.  

This morning, I write from a small Japanese cafe.  On breakfast menu is akadewa "tea".  A bean tea that I am drinking.  This tea was used during the great Tenmei Famine.  Encouraged by Yozan Uesugi.  Yozan.  The people still drink the tea and have many other "famine food" items on local menus. 

Now in 2023, conditions for global famine are growing.  Japan is at great risk.  

Some things always go with Famine.  War, Pandemic, and HOP.  

HOP is the Human Osmotic Pressure of migration.  The tidal push and pull of humanity.  

In famine, most people die not from starvation but from disease.  Diseaes such as Famine Fevers.  One of the most serious famine fevers is Typhus.  Not to be confused with Typhoid.  Typhus and typhoid are entirely different.  Even medical professionals mix the names.

Each morning years I receive daily typhus media updates from Google Net Alerts.  Below is my actual Net Alert from yesterday:

I track Epidemic Typhus because Epidemic Typhus travels with war and famine.  Not to be confused with scrub typhus or murine typhus.  I do not pay attention to murine or scrub typhus.  I pay full attention to epidemic typhus.  Epidemic typhus is spread by head lice and by body lice.  

Epidemic typhus is a no-kidding super-killer when it hits critical mass.  Or, as Dr. Chris Martenson might say, "case case case, cluster cluster BOOM!"  During the last century we seldom see a BOOM of epidemic typhus because.  We see many cases such as in American homeless camps.  And some clusters.  But not many BOOMs at this time.

This is why:

1) Thanks to smart people, we now know lice spread epidemic typhus.  So fight the lice.  Thus Army/ Marines -- short hair.  (Coincidentally, ivermectin is used against lice).

2) Typhus is caused by bacteria that is effectively fought back with antibiotics.  Unfortunately, this is 2023.  Supply chains are breaking down.  And those antibiotics come from drug companies.  Drug companies are openly killing people

These are the two most recent books I read on typhus.  One is from 1868 and might be considered outdated, but it's not.  There is much to learn from old books such as how we still behave in the face of the unknown while we fumble around searching for answers.  We bump into things a lot.  

In famine, most people do not starve to death.  We tend to die from disease long before we burn our final calorie.  

A main culprit of famine death is Epidemic Typhus.  Epidemic Typhus occurs in cold, hot, wet, dry.  Doesn't matter.  The lice live on us.  And they mate like crazy and spread madly.  

Epidemic Typhus is one of the famous Famine Fevers.  Relapsing fever is another.  

Famine Fevers onset usually some months after famine sets in.  

At issue with Epidemic Typhus is that it does not need famine to spread.  Famine only creates conditions for lice to spread.  

Epidemic Typhus has many names such as War Fever, Famine Fever, Ship Fever, Naval Fever, Camp Fever, and Hospital Fever.  This might provide a clue as to how it spreads.

This typhus is found in homeless camps in places like California.  It's there right now.  But is down to the case-case cluster-cluster level only because society has not broken down at this time.  There is nothing on earth stopping another vast outbreak of epidemic typhus -- other than lice control, and antibiotics whose supply, quality, and efficacy, are in question.

This bacteria is endemic to large swathes of earth such as in Texas and can spread as quickly as airplanes fly with body and head lice.

Cooties is an old term for lice.  And so the cooties game we learned to play was survival training.  For most modern children, cooties is just a game.  But in upcoming years those homeless camps and millions of hungry "migrants" will not be a game.  Epidemic Typhus can kill millions.  

The Dutch hate typhus on a deep cultural level.  Dutch even use diseases for curse words.  A Dutch person might say "optyfussen!"  Typhus off!  (If you look up optyfussen online, notice how often typhus is confused with typhoid.)  

Typhus is so under control today that most doctors I have mentioned it know very little about typhus.  I only pay attention because I study war -- and famine goes with war like smoke with fire.  And typhus goes with famine and war...like smoke with fire.

I sense we are heading into a period during which typhus will make a comeback and will kill massive numbers of people.  But people who study typhus even for a couple hours will have a serious advantage.  Beware the Cooties!  

Epidemic Typhus is like a giant mindfield.  But this mindfield is also marked by signs.  Read the signs.  Walk around the mindfield like it does not exist.

Even leftist media admit the homeless camps are typhus camps:

Curiouser and curiouser -- this website below identifies itself as the American Academy of Pediatrics and now recommends not sending home from school children with lice.  Are they going Medieval in creating more Epidemic Typhus?  
I do not find this surprising.  Not surprising because my paradigm is that WEF/CCP are intentionally depopulating most of the world population.  At times when you find yourself astonished, this can be a sign that it's time to reexamine your paradigm.  Surprise is an indicator that a paradigm needs adjustment or even to be thrown out.  Or at least to be recalculated.  By this time, it should be clear that democide is unfolding globally.

The same website promoting lice breeding by leaving cooties-ridden children in school, also promotes death jabs for infants and children: 



In closing, I have some research appointments on famine here in Japan.  This mind-dump sans-edit was sparked by a Texas friend who happens to be in Charlotte, North Carolina.  She remembers our conversation in Texas about lice and typhus.  She messaged this photo today from North Carolina -- which really got me going.  And she found this website:  https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/hair-fairies-opens-newest-location-in-charlotte-300500636.html

[Please excuse the roughness of this dispatch...in a rush.]

Links to the "pediactric" murder website: 


In closing....this research is very expensive.  Please support!

Am not out shamelessly raising millions at the big, drunk dance parties.  Seems like every political event I witness, such as Project Veritas in Miamia, or whatever, ends up being big drunken party.  I do not drink, smoke, or any of that.  I only work, and alert about big things in non-flashy ways fueld by tiny funding.  Others raise millions at the drunken bashes and end up in trailor-park fights, or in highly suspicious circumstance and scandal.  I am just a simple war correspondent and researcher.

Thank you for all support -- there are many methods at these two links:
