Taliban takes over Kabul without firing a bullet.

The bloodless coup in Afghanistan:

The President and vice President of Afghanistan have left Kabul, perhaps for Tajikistan. Everybody is wondering as to what happened?

First of all the President Ghani and his coterie were all incompetent and thoroughly corrupt. USA had announced that Afghan Army was 300 thousand strong. Actually USA was paying the bill for that number but half of them were ghost. Government officials were lining their pocket.

Secondly, no money was spent to garrison the areas to enable the army to fight an invasion which was known to happen from beyond redcliff line.

Thirdly supply lines were too long and army officials had no or little relations with local villages and they nearly starved and run away when supply lines were choked by Taliban with clever help of Pakistani Army. (The American contractors making supplies ran away immediately after a few killings)

Fourth and the most important. In a war between two Islamic armies of same sect (Sunni in this case) if they are equally poised, it becomes a matter of theological debate as to who is more Muslim entitled to rule.

It appears therefore that Islamic authority ruled in favour of Taliban and Afghan army as dutiful Muslims were to obey Islam first and they surrendered.

Welcome to Dar al Islam. House of Peace.

To know how Islamic politics works, wait for my next book which is coming soon.

Meanwhile Mulla Ghani Baradar, a close buddy of ex president Karzai was arrested by Pakistan in 2010 and was released only in 2018. He heads the Taliban today.

There is one more point. The democracy either must have roots in general population. Merely a periodic election of President is not enough if general public is not involved. The USA does the superficial work, where ever it attacks. This result in a power vaccum. The same thing had happened in Iraq and else where.

Spy Stories Inside the Secret World of ISI and RAW by Adrian Levy, Cathy Scott-Clark: A Review

Spy Stories Inside the Secret World of ISI and RAW written by Adrian Levy, Cathy Scott-Clark appears to be a sponsored work which falls under the category of propaganda.

The book is a disappointment because it borders on matching known facts with rumors and building a narrative. In doing this it conveniently ignores the facts and stories which hinder the narrative. That is the most disappointing.

To ask for neutrality in journalism is to sight a unicorn. An almost impossibility. But to be so far away from the home turf to write ghost stories which have no connection with half the truth is not an answer to the call of inner subjective bias but smells of hired propaganda. To quote from the same book:

” In the 1990s, the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.) decided on a facelift and appointed a Tinseltown liaison, Chase Brandon, a cousin of the star Tommy Lee Jones but also from the old order. Brandon had spent four decades in espionage, almost twenty-five years of it undercover for the Agency in regions including Latin America.
He got to work in 1996 engaging studio heads, directors, stars, and writers, encouraging them to project a different kind of spy in their scripts. In the two decades before, the C.I.A. had been accused of acting illegally, immorally, and without constraint, experimenting with
group conditioning and hallucinogens, doping volunteers, and spiking the unsuspecting. Abroad it was seen to have commissioned assassinations and coups, with officers involved in torture and death squads. Democracy appeared to be the flats of a stage, behind which the Agency toiled.
But now, Brandon maintained, the Agency had changed. “We’ve been portrayed erroneously as evil and Machiavellian. It took us a long time to support projects that portray us in the light we want to be seen in,” he said.”

What is interesting is the timing of this book on spies. Downplaying Pakistan’s ISI and alongwith it India’s R&AW while not forgetting to make few punches on Ajit Doval, India’s NSA at a time when fight is going on in Afghanistan by the proxies of Pakistan is even more interesting.

The fact that a section of media jumped at few stories from the book, almost instantly corroborates the point that it is a part of propaganda.

On a scale of 1 to 10 stars, I will give it 2 stars. One star is for the paragraph extracted above and second is for the rest of book.

Afghanistan under Attack: What is the truth about the war?

It is well known that Pakistan want dominance in Afghanistan under the pretext of strategic depth and they have pursued this policy ever since. They see the Taliban as a tool for themselves. USA left Bagram Base on 5th July 2021 and immediately Pakistan trained warlords inaptly named Taliban started capturing villages after village and even went on to proclaim that they had captured 85% of Afghanistan. The question is: What is happening?

What is happening in Afghanistan?

The Afghan intelligence agency had recently arrested a Pakistan army officer, who was sent to Paktia province in Afghanistan by Pakistan forces to fight alongside Taliban and conduct “destructive activities” in the country, local media reported citing an official.
The officer has been identified Azim Akhtar.

For India, a key security concern is the presence in Afghanistan of more than 7,000 Pakistani terrorists from groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed. These fighters are fighting alongside the Taliban in many areas. India’s concern is also linked with Afghanistan becoming a base camp for these terrorist organization.

DALDA desperate and flexes muscle.

National Investigating Agency has arrested Sachin Hindurao Vaze who is a police officer of the Maharashtra Police Force of India. Vaze is known as an “encounter specialist” with the Mumbai Encounter Squad and was involved with the deaths of as many as 63 alleged criminals. Vaze joined Maharashtra Police Force in 1990.

Vaze was arrested at 11.50 pm on Saturday, after being questioned for 12 hours by the NIA on the ground of placing explosive at the house of businessmen Mukesh Ambani on 25th February 2021. Imagine an on duty Police Officer working as a terrorist? The court has granted custody of Vaze till 25th March 2021. He is likely to be subjected to Narco Test, which is an euphemism for truth serum interrogation.

Let’s connect the dots. Ambani is publicly harassed, by one national political party repeatedly as beneficiary of the Govt policies without any details what so ever. Mobile towers of his company are vandalised in Punjab. Subscriber base of Jio falls to lowest in Punjab.

Income tax raids on Anurag Kashyap, Tapsee Pannu and others.

The Secret of making profit from flop movies:

Anurag Kashyap is a mediocre movie director whose last and only successful movie is remembered for the choicest expletives he inserted in it. The actress Tapsee Pannu is no different. She is relatively new comer and not a blockbuster by any standards. Yet both have their networth multiplied exponentially. For past three days incometax department is questioning them for sources of their income.

The Midas Touch of Wealth without SUCCESS.

The Income Tax Department had been monitoring these two for a long time. Their ever rising wealth has become a reason for raids especially the fact that it happened while their movies were constantly flopping. Two producers Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena have also similar track record. The IT department is searching the magical wand by which these people generate wealth.

Anurag Kashyap
