Hundreds of Jihadis Protest After Taliban Arrests One of Their Own

Protests broke out in Maimana, capital of Afghanistan’s Faryab province, on Thursday after the Taliban arrested one of their own commanders, Uzbekistan-born Makhdoom Alam. A veteran battlefield commander and “shadow governor” of Faryab under the Taliban’s “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan,” Alam was the highest-ranking Uzbek in the Taliban hierarchy.

How Feminists Can Support Afghan Women Living Under the Taliban

WASHINGTON (Jacobin) — Since the Taliban took control of Kabul and the central government on August 15, efforts to support Afghan women have become extremely challenging. According to some prominent U.S. feminists with strong ties to Afghan women, the Taliban “has no legitimacy beyond the brutal force it commands,” and governments, the United Nations and regional actors should not recognize or work with it. For some, this means isolating the Taliban by continuing to freeze Afghan funds held overseas and suspending any assistance that is coordinated with a government agency. But does that position really help Afghan women? There’s little question that gains made by Afghan women over the past 20 years, particularly urban women, have been rolled back—at least temporarily. Since coming to power, the Taliban have said girls would be allowed to go to school, but in some parts of the country, girls are being kept out of grades 7-12. And while female students have continued to attend private universities, most women enrolled in public universities have not been attending classes due to fear, canceled classes or Taliban restrictions. Even though Taliban spokesmen insist that women can continue to work, there are also frequent reports of Taliban militants

General Milley Orchestrated Coup, Committed Treason – Execution is Penalty for Traitors

If you look closely at the actions of General Mark Milley in recent years, what you see is the highest-ranked member of the US military empowering – and even arming – the enemy, whether it be the Taliban, BLM or the CCP. As Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Milley presided over the Communist military coup which stole the 2020 Election and then installed 35,000 troops in DC to protect the senile puppet. Treason has been normalized under Milley. Will Milley get a $5 million book deal and be allowed to retire to Martha’s Vineyard, lionized as a Globalist hero or will he be subject to the law? Colonel Christopher Miller, who was the acting Defense Secretary at the time of the calls said: “The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is the highest-ranking military officer whose sole role is providing military-specific advice to the president, and by law is prohibited from exercising executive authority to command forces,” Miller said. “The chain of command runs from the President to the Secretary of Defense, not through the Chairman. “If the reporting in Woodward’s book is accurate, it represents a disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination by the Nation’s

On Propaganda and Failed Narratives: New Understanding of Afghanistan is a Must

For twenty years, two dominant narratives have shaped our view of the illegal US invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, and neither one of these narratives would readily accept the use of such terms as ‘illegal’, ‘invasion’ and ‘occupation.’ The framing of the US ‘military intervention’ in Afghanistan, starting on October 7, 2001, as the official start of what was dubbed as a global ‘war on terror’ was left almost entirely to US government strategists. Former President, George W. Bush, his Vice President, Dick Cheney, his Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld and an army of spokespersons, neoconservative ‘intellectuals’, journalists and so on, championed the military option as a way to rid Afghanistan of its terrorists, make the world a safe place and, as a bonus, bring democracy to Afghanistan and free its oppressed women. For that crowd, the US war in an already war-torn and extremely impoverished country was a just cause, maybe violent at times, but ultimately humanistic. Another narrative, also a western one, challenged the gung-ho approach used by the Bush administration, argued that democracy cannot be imposed by force, reminded Washington of Bill Clinton’s multilateral approach to international politics, warned against the ‘cut and run’ style of foreign

We’re Set Up Right Now For a Mass Casualty Attack

First, I want to post a correction to a statement I made about Germany placing a 2-week moratorium on the vaxx. This was based on a video being shared by several European Twitter users. It turns out, this video is intentionally misleading. (Why would somebody make a fake video like that?) In fact, Germany continues to fiercely advocate for the vaxx. There is no moratorium in Germany. *** Combat journalist, Michael Yon joins Steve Bannon with a report, via Lara Logan that the State Department has been making it more difficult for Americans to get home from Afghanistan, having denied clearance and changed paperwork at the last minute multiple times. Yon believes the United States is funneling Americans through the Taliban to get them killed on purpose. “Our forces are within small arms range of the Taliban right now and they have the same weapons that we have and they’re very well-trained, because we trained them. “Or own Special Forces trained them. They’re actually quite good fighters now. So, they easily can take out our aircraft now.” Yon believes this is a set-up for a mass-casualty attack and that all of the Americans and allies left behind will be

John Pilger: Afganistan, The Great Game of Smashing Countries

As a tsunami of crocodile tears engulfs Western politicians, history is suppressed. More than a generation ago, Afghanistan won its freedom, which the United States, Britain and their “allies” destroyed. In 1978, a liberation movement led by the People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan (PDPA) overthrew the dictatorship of Mohammad Dawd, the cousin of King Zahir Shar. It was an immensely popular revolution that took the British and Americans by surprise. Foreign journalists in Kabul, reported the New York Times, were surprised to find that “nearly every Afghan they interviewed said [they were] delighted with the coup”. The Wall Street Journal reported that “150,000 persons … marched to honour the new flag …the participants appeared genuinely enthusiastic.” The Washington Post reported that “Afghan loyalty to the government can scarcely be questioned”. Secular, modernist and, to a considerable degree, socialist, the government declared a programme of visionary reforms that included equal rights for women and minorities. Political prisoners were freed and police files publicly burned. Under the monarchy, life expectancy was thirty-five; one in three children died in infancy. Ninety per cent of the population was illiterate. The new government introduced free medical care. A mass literacy campaign was launched. For women, the gains had no precedent;

Freezing Afghanistan’s Wealth: US Scrambles to Hit Hard with “Soft” Power

WASHINGTON — In keeping with President Joe Biden’s pledge to withdraw from America’s 20-year war in one of the poorest countries on earth, the U.S. government has yet to present any plan for future relations with Afghanistan, as it is reportedly scrambling to freeze Kabul’s wealth for fears of it falling into the hands of the Taliban. In the midst of the sudden collapse of Afghanistan’s government and the subsequent return to power of the Taliban this Sunday, the U.S. troop presence at Afghanistan’s Kabul Airport has reportedly increased to 4,500 strong, with a further increase planned to 6,000 in coming days. Having abandoned its embassy in the Afghan capital and vowing to maintain a presence only at the country’s airport, the U.S. government has severely miscalculated the pace at which the country was destined to fall into Taliban control. The lack of a contingency plan, in the case that such an insurgency was to overwhelm the U.S.-backed government of former President Ashraf Ghani, has led to an embarrassment of the U.S. military and a stark decline in Biden’s approval rating at home.   The hard impact of U.S. “soft” power “Any Central Bank assets the Afghan government have in

Chinese Foreign Minister Lectures Antony Blinken on Afghanistan

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi lectured American Secretary of State Antony Blinken in a phone call Monday for the allegedly “hasty” American withdrawal from Afghanistan and warned him not to seek help from Beijing on the issue while working to “contain and suppress China.”

Dr David Clements – Bad Actors EXPOSED, Coup Attempt REAL, All Lies REVEALED!

Joe Biden had intended to hide from the press at Camp David and had no plans to publicly address the nation until Wednesday, but there was no way that he could get away with that, as the Leader of the Free World, so he was flown back to the White House yesterday afternoon to give a bumbling 10-minute speech, in which he blamed Trump for the fall of Kabul and he refused to take responsibility for his decisive role in the disaster that is now unfolding.  He was promptly flown back to Camp David. The Mainstream Media and all of the Globalist-controlled politicians around the world – and even people like Leon Panetta – came out of the woodwork to join the chorus of opprobrium against Biden, which is a signal that the Biden Removal Op has begun. After shamelessly propping up Biden since he declared his candidacy in 2020, the gravity of Afghanistan is such that he is toxic to them now. As News max reporter Emerald Robinson says, the fall of Afghanistan is not just a crisis of credibility for Biden but for the Brookings Institute, the Council on Foreign Relations and for the entire Neoliberal foreign

Afghanistan: Media Gives Cover to US Troops’ Slaughter of Civilians Fleeing Taliban

WASHINGTON (Substack // Alex Rubinstein) — As the United States departs from the country it occupied for 20 years it leaves on a note just as savage as some of the worst moments of the war. The United States and its fallen puppet government in Kabul have committed crimes on par with anything the Taliban has ever done. The US has bombed hospitals, dropped the biggest bomb ever since Hiroshima and Nagasaki, supported death squads, and in some months killed more civilians than the Taliban. There were some months where the US and the Afghan military it trained and equipped killed more civilians than the Taliban. That’s according to the United Nations. And since the Taliban itself were an offshoot of the CIA-sponsored Mujahedeen, it’s not difficult to also lay partial blame for the group’s atrocities on the US. As I reported here a few months ago, since then-Vice President Joe Biden’s promise in 2011 that the United States would be leaving Afghanistan in 2014, the US dropped more than 25,000 bombs on the country. Last year, what was supposed to be a US drone attack on a Taliban splinter group killed 60 civilians. The absurdly corrupt fallen puppet government of
