    You mean they need a new excuse to "go in" Afghanistan?!

    It was completely unrelated the last time as well.

    And then, it seems the social engineering failed there. Their obstacle is probably that schools/media aren't the strongest institutions there. So what they pulled in Western countries can't work in a country like Afghanistan.

    Yes that's what I mean. But it may not be for years. If you read Russia Today, they suggest the main reason for the wars (and the recent overthrowing of several governments) was to help preserve the US dollar as the global reserve currency. You can see an interviewee making that claim in their new documentary at 32:40, but it's in every other article on RT.com:



    Also, when you can't get another country to attack you, you might have to invent a reason to attack them:

    https://www.rt.com/usa/nine-eleven-a...easons-towers/

    I'm not some moral crusader on this issue. The paper/money you print is either worth something to the rest of the world (to get access to their resources) or it isn't. If 'we' (ethnocentric Germanics/Whites) were in power, we'd undoubtedly end up having the same policy (re war), but we'd operate differently. We wouldn't have false flag attacks on our own soil to trick our countries into invading others. We'd just tell the other countries to keep using our currency or we'd bomb/nuke them (without getting a single one of our soldiers killed). That's horrid, but it's apparently what's needed to keep being the First World. North America, Europe, Russia would be in an alliance so there'd be no friction between us; and there'd be no real likelihood of attacking another country as I don't think they'd resist a NATO-Russia alliance. Six earths (for resources) are supposedly needed for every human to have a middle American lifestyle. Certainly allowing a few more Russians to have that lifestyle wouldn't be the end of the world, and the savings from no longer spending so much on our militaries would make up the difference. Russia asks to be a part of NATO every year so that the nonsense stops, but there are still too many selfish sick scumbags on our side that reject their requests who benefit from the status quo. I may not have time for more discussion. I wish everyone well.
    We need a reservation system for our people and our own ethnic-nationalist faith, where we'll have sermons about our people and nations, real history, science, philosophy, etc., in addition to our older religions. Throw in some open bar nights, comedy club hours, music and dance, etc., and it'll be a cracker barrel of good times lol.

    British Military Reportedly Spotted UK, US-Trained Afghans Among Taliban Fighters



    Sputniknews

    The reports of Afghan government forces switching sides instead of fighting the insurgents actively circulated in media in July and August 2021 during the Taliban offensive.

    Some Taliban* fighters, seen in numerous, show photos signs of having received professional military training, possibly from the UK or US, or from people whom these countries' militaries had trained, The Times reported, citing anonymous sources in the British military. They reportedly came to this conclusion studying the photos, including from the latest Taliban operation in the Panjshir Valley.

    The sources pointed to the fact that many fighters hold their fingers straight over the trigger guard when holding a gun, which prevents accidental weapon discharges.

    "This is the safety training we have […] An untrained force would normally hold the weapon randomly. But if your hand is behind the pistol grip and your finger is over the trigger guard, then you are not going to have a negligent discharge and no one else is going to fire it either", British military sources told The Times.

    This type of training is typical in Western militaries and could alternatively have been provided to the Taliban fighters by those who were trained by the American or British, the media's sources said.

    This adds to the feeling that the insurgent group has undergone certain changes over the past decades, becoming "Taliban 2.0", some of the sources said. Trigger discipline is one of these signs. Another is the reports that suggest the Taliban did not kill "loads of people" in the Panjshir Valley – the last stronghold of the opposition.

    "[The Taliban] is not the same hillbillies from the 1990s", one anonymous source said. The US and other NATO states have engaged in a lot of training of Afghan locals as part of the unsuccessful effort to build a military capable of at least keeping the Taliban at bay after the foreign forces withdrew. There have been numerous media reports suggesting that many members of the Afghan military chose to switch sides instead of fighting the insurgents, when they launched their summer offensive that resulted in the takeover of Afghanistan.

    As to the reasons why soldiers switched sides, there may be several explanations, Barbara Kelemen, an intelligence analyst at the security intelligence firm Dragonfly said.

    "Among reasons that would prompt some soldiers to join the Taliban are their previous ties to the group, economic incentives and even personal or family safety if they perceived defeat for government forces was likely". Barbara Kelemen, Intelligence analyst

    At the same time, an anonymous defence source rejected a notion in the interview with The Times, claiming that any "competent" force would have exhibited signs such as a "straight finger".

    "We have no evidence to support reports that western-trained former Afghan Security Forces have joined the Taliban", the source said.

    North Korea Insists US ‘Be Brought to Justice’ for ‘Atrocities’ in Afghanistan



    Sputniknews

    The last US troops left Afghanistan on 30 August after nearly twenty years of war and occupation. The country’s pro-Western government collapsed suddenly in mid-August, just four months after Washington and its NATO allies announced that they would be withdrawing, and ten days after the Taliban captured its first major city.

    The US-led war in Afghanistan constituted “gross violation of human rights” and gave rise to a host of “inhumane crimes” which must not be left unanswered, North Korea’s foreign ministry has said.

    In a statement on its website Sunday, Pyongyang indicated that the two decade-long US-led ‘counter-terrorism’ operation in Afghanistan “came to an end with the hasty flight of US troops”.

    “At this moment in time, the world is raising the voices demanding that US troops should be brought to justice at all costs for its atrocities of mass destruction committed against innocent people in this country and that a stern judgement be made on the criminals,” the ministry said.

    Pyongyang recalled recent statements by officials in Iran and China regarding the US occupation and the crimes against civilians, including deaths and injuries caused by US drone strikes, and other acts of violence.
    “The US should be brought to justice at all costs for its crimes of killing innocent people in different parts of the world behind the veil of the ‘judge of human rights’,” the ministry said, suggesting that “all the places trampled upon by US troops [are] reduced to the barren land of human rights.”

    In another statement related to Afghanistan earlier this month, the foreign ministry pointed to the recently held 31st special session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, at which it said “many countries pointed out that those responsible for crimes against humanity in Afghanistan,” and demanded that they be called to account. “They stressed that the US and its allies left no other legacy in Afghanistan but the death of 241,000 people, including 7,792 children,” Pyongyang recalled.

    “It is clearly shown that the US and the Western countries, though they advocate ‘protection of human rights’, are the stranglers of human rights, mercilessly trampling upon even the right to life, the basic right to human rights, and that they receive unanimous denunciation from the international society,” the foreign ministry argued.

    Pyongyang emphasized that there are “no statutes of limitations for crimes against humanity and the criminals who have violated human rights [cannot] evade the stern judgement of the international society."

    The foreign ministry’s statement comes amid the continuing deterioration of relations between North Korea and the United States. The country test fired a new type of long-range cruise missile over the weekend, with the test the first of its kind since March. The earlier test followed the US decision to move forward with large-scale military drills with the South Korean military. North Korea views such exercises as rehearsals for an invasion of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), the country’s official name.

    During his presidency, Donald Trump took steps to improve ties with Pyongyang, with the ultimate goal being the demilitarization of the Korean Peninsula and the curbing of North Korea’s nuclear programme. Kim Jong-un and Trump established a personal rapport and met several times throughout the latter’s presidency, but no firm agreements were reached.

    The Biden administration has faced no such fortune, with the two sides returning to hostile rhetoric, and Pyongyang urging Washington to drop the “lunatic theory of [the] ‘threat from North Korea’ and groundless rhetoric about complete denuclearization.”

    President Biden’s comments on the campaign trail criticizing Trump for meeting with Kim, and his characterization of the North Korean leader as a “thug,” “tyrant” and “dictator” prompted North Korean media to blast Biden as an “imbecile” and a “rabid dog” that “must be beaten to death with a stick.”

    Last month, Kim Yo-jong, Kim Jong-un’s sister and vice-director of the information and publicity department of North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party, warned that US and South Korean preparations for fresh military drills “facilitates instability” and will prompt Pyongyang to “strengthen [its] national defence and strong preemptive capabilities.”

    Taliban Executes British-Trained Afghan Sniper in Front of His Family



    Taliban Executes British-Trained Afghan Sniper in Front of His Family



    Former British Army Col. Ash Alexander-Cooper, who served as an adviser to the Afghan Ministry of Interior Affairs, reported on Tuesday that an Afghan sniper who worked with British special forces was hunted down by the Taliban and brutally executed in front of his family in Kabul.


    Alexander-Cooper told the Times of London the slain sniper was a 28-year-old father of five who had been hiding in Kabul since the Taliban takeover. The victim, identified only as “N” to protect his family from further brutality, belonged to an elite Afghan military unit that was “very effective and mentored by the British.”


    Alexander-Cooper said the victim was “shot multiple times, executed in front of his family” when the Taliban found him. He noted all of N’s children are under 9 years of age, and the youngest is a ten-day-old baby. “For those leaders still unsure, this is not a game, ‘N’ was executed by the Taliban in cold blood just a few hours ago. His crime? Years of loyal and professional service, mentored by British units,” he
    said on Twitter.


    “There is no amnesty. Abandoned by us, this murder will not be the last,” Alexander-Cooper warned. “This is the reality of the ‘new’ Taliban. Talk of inclusivity, diversity and amnesty is a joke and some are falling for it. Wake up,” he said.


    A second source, a former Afghan interpreter named Rafi Hottak now living in the United Kingdom, confirmed the details about “N” and said he was a member of an Afghan special forces unit designated CF333. Hottak said “N” was on his list of “700 Afghans who wanted to come to Britain but had been left behind.”


    The Times of London additionally reported a former interpreter who worked with British forces, a 25-year-old father of four named Sharif Karimi, was kidnapped and beaten by Taliban fighters when he tried to reach the Kabul airport for an evacuation flight. Karimi was released after local elders helped his family pay a $21,500 ransom.


    The UK Daily Mail on Monday reported a “former frontline interpreter with UK troops” named Mohammad Khan was able to escape from Afghanistan by crossing into Pakistan with his wife and three children, aided by Japanese officials instead of the British government. “Mohammad said Japanese officials – he had worked with Tokyo-backed aid programs – helped orchestrate his escape and, unlike the British, had been in regular contact with him,” the Daily Mail wrote.


    The Taliban constantly promises it will not engage in “reprisal killings” to keep international aid flowing, and tells Afghans who worked with Western governments they have no reason to flee the country, even as accounts of vicious retaliatory assaults, kidnappings, and murders pile up.



    On Monday, a group of Western-trained Afghan pilots who fled to Afghanistan began relocating to the United Arab Emirates, evidently unconvinced by Taliban promises they would be welcomed if they returned home and have no reason to fear retaliation.



    See the Taliban is a nicer more compassionate Taliban.
    Instead of cutting off his head in the soccer stadium, they did it in front of his family so they could know his last words.
    Biden, Austin, Blinkin and Milley are MURDERING WAR CRIMINALS.


    No such thing as the "new" Taliban...same old savages...anyone who doesn't recognize this fact is a fool.


    The vids of peoples heads being sawed off with dull knives, burned in cages, thrown off cliffs etc. are coming.


    Hey Biden, you sign off on those checks to the Taliban yet you pos.

    Oh, it's of course a clever ruse to extract aid as well. And if you've noticed, the story is 100% unverifiable. Writing badly about the Taliban is allowed. Not that I have sympathies for them, but as long as they are on their own turf, I won't worry too much.

    Boris Johnson Contradicts Joe Biden With Claim of Intelligence That Taliban Could Take Kabul

    Sputniknews

    In August, President Joe Biden was stunned by the rapid advance of the Taliban through Afghanistan as US troops began to depart. In the weeks since, new details have emerged that intelligence officials in the United States and the United Kingdom were warning that the Taliban could advance quickly on Kabul.

    In an interview with Savannah Guthrie on NBC’s “Today” morning news program, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson admitted that intelligence officials had warned him that the Taliban was in a position to advance on Kabul swiftly.
    “There was a spectrum of predictions from the intelligence people, amongst which was the possibility that Kabul would fall very fast and the Taliban would take over very fast.”



    Johnson spent much of the interview defending the Biden administrations’ handling of the withdrawal.

    The public stance that the Biden administration was surprised by the Taliban’s swift advance has not held up to scrutiny. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken admitted that he had received a cable from Kabul in July warning of rapid advance by the Taliban.

    Details from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa’s book “Peril” present a similar story. As early as March, Blinken and US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin warned that if the withdrawal did not slow down, the risk of a swift Taliban advance remained an ever-present danger.

    No one likes collaborators. The Brits did not cry when the French executed 10 000 (or so) Frenchmen who had collaborated with the Germans during WW2. So why are they so upset now?

    They need to stop whining. No one likes a sore loser.
