This classified CIA analysis from March outlines possible PR strategies to shore up public support in Germany and France for a continued war in Afghanistan. After the Dutch government fell on the issue of Dutch troops in Afghanistan last month, the CIA became worried that similar events could happen in the countries that post the third and fourth largest troop contingents to the ISAF mission. The proposed PR strategies focus on pressure points that have been identified within these countries. For France it is the sympathy of the public for Afghan refugees and women. For Germany it is the fear of the consequences of defeat (drugs, more refugees, terrorism) as well as for Germany's standing in NATO. The memo is a recipe for the targeted manipulation of public opinion in two NATO ally countries, written by the CIA. It is classified as Confidential/No Foreign Nationals.

The summary said “For France it is the sympathy of the public for Afghan refugees and women. For Germany it is the fear of the consequences of defeat (drugs, more refugees, terrorism) as well as for Germany’s standing in NATO.”

So France is more susceptible to liberal emotional manipulation then Germany? If find it intersting that they prey on conservative fears for Germany. Its also possible the the CIAs analysis and action are just incompetent.

I really hope people won’t use this as an argument to through women under the bus, because “emancipation is shit lib and CIA propaganda”.

Of course the CIA uses what ever means to justify war crimes.

Here’s the position of an women organisation form women of afghanistan:

"From the very beginning we could predict such an outcome. On the first days of the US occupation of Afghanistan, RAWA declared on October 11, 2001:

“The continuation of US attacks and the increase in the number of innocent civilian victims not only gives an excuse to the Taliban, but also will cause the empowerment of the fundamentalist forces in the region and even in the world.”" http://rawa.org/rawa/2021/08/21/rawa-responds-to-the-taliban-takeover.html
