America’s Leadership Has Presented False Choices in Afghanistan

Covers almost all military aspects. Do spare a minute to read it in entirety.

Tenacious Hellpussy

Note that an edited, and much-abbreviated version of this appeared in Foreign Policy on 16 August 2021. This extended piece has more details.

U.S. President Biden has abandoned the Afghans to fend for themselves against the Taliban. By following a course of policy established by his ignominious predecessor, President Donald J. Trump, Biden has defiantly asserted that he does not regret his decision to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan even after provincial capitals are falling like dominos to the Taliban and even as Kabul itself expected to fall within weeks. The United States begged the Taliban for assurances that they will not attack the US Embassy as the United States callously scrambles to evacuate US personnel, leaving our long-standing Afghan partners to fend for themselves as the Taliban hunt them down and their families. American officials are busy offering sanctimonious repines that justify America’s exeunt from the country. They…

America after exit from Afghanistan.

For a superpower to fall on its knees thrice within a year should be enough to take away the ‘Super Power’ card it flaunts.

First it was China. Inspite of it’s deceitful imposition of corona virus in collusion with WHO, the USA, the worst affected country could not dare to blink an eye on China. Only because Government is more interested in protecting business interest of corporations doing business with China. Last I checked, protecting business ignoring life of citizens was not part of Governance.

Secondly, USA surrendered before the pharma industry. Half useless (60% only)  vaccines were foisted upon citizens and the President of USA himself told people that there was no need to wear mask after vaccination when it is common knowledge that this vaccine is ‘introductory’ type which only prevent shock and death therefrom. It still is helpless.

Now it has surrendered again before Taliban proxies of Pakistan. Only to ensure that the monkey of Pakistan keep bleeding India by terrorism. Let me explain.

Pakistan was created by British only to keep a colony type asset in which they may have base and they keep a physical boundary between India and Soviets (Russia now). It was a good move though a million dies and ten million displaced due to hurried, ill planned partition on religious lines.

Having learnt the lesson of management of Islam from UK, the USA  experimented all over Middle East. Where ever Islamist went against it, they were killed. Same as Gn Zia Ul Haq of Pakistan in 1989.

There is another reason for failure of USA. It has elected a President who can only be elected by fraud. Joe is palpably suffering from dementia. His words and expressions do not match. His legs are left behind too often. He should be resting. But he is dragged around by deep state (Obama?) to pretend as President.

Now USA is troubled by Pakistan which is the mother ship of global terrorism but the desire to keep a check on India is even more pressing. Therefore USA entered into a stupid deal with Taliban in following stupid terms:

“The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan which is not recognized by the United States as a state and is known as the Taliban will not allow any of its members, other individuals or groups, including al-Qa’ida, to use the soil of Afghanistan to threaten the security of the United States and its allies.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan which is not recognized by the United States as a state and is known as the Taliban will send a clear message that those who pose a threat to the security of the United States and its allies have no place in Afghanistan, and will instruct members of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan which is not recognized by the United States as a state and is known as the Taliban not to cooperate with groups or individuals threatening the security of the United States and its allies.”

I will extract the entire agreement dated Feb 2022 below. What kind of agreement is this? I make an agreement with John and yet in the agreement I my say that I do not recognize John as John?

What USA politicians  do not understand is that if properly taught, life in Islam starts after death. It is called principle of Akhariyat. It will be just another 5 years when Karma will catch up with USA. Islam will catch up with it.

Incidentally the Taliban formed the government in 1996 and we all know what happened in 2001. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and wait. Though we hope this suicide mission of USA fails.

Full text of Agreement:

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.
