New World Order

 

“In Xi’s vision, a unified and resurgent China would be on par with or would surpass the United States.” And, in contrast to the imperfect but indisputably liberal foundation of the post–World War II system, Xi’s order is built on institutions, laws, and technologies that “reinforce state control, limit individual freedoms, and constrain open markets.”

Do we need borders? What is the difference between refugees and immigrants? BBC reports. People discuss the issue but do not conceptualize the Indian way of living in a multi-ethnic and language and economic system. Consider the development of Bihar / West Bengal and Punjab, Maharashtra, Gujrat, Kerala, Tamilnadu etc.

11 October 2021 Historical Memory

I wrote on historical memory in my media course. "Should historical memories be erased to achieve and maintain peace? In other words, should victims forgive people, peoples, and groups for the atrocities committed?
"The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; wise forgive but do not forget (Szasz, 1974, p.51)." I add: “to be wiser and maintain peace for the next generations alter historical memories of all nations, cultures and religions”. Can media and internet alter historical memories? ". I shall upload my writing on my website soon and add a link here.
Listen to the discussions of Vikram Sampath, Shashi Tharoor, and Aaj Tak coordinator Rajdeep Sardesai. Shashi Tharoor and Rajdeep belong and grown up during Nehru congress time, and Vikram Sampath is talking only as a historian. Shashi Tharoor is a politician and member of parliament representing Congress ideology. Rajdeep says history talk cannot evade politics. Vikram argues that history should be open and should not be modified and let readers decide what is right and wrong.

Democracy 

This book talks about democracy in India. I do not agree. But one can learn new language to talk about emotions. Some quotes are added Seema Chisti reviews this book. Enclosed some highlights to understand and read in detail. [Harsh and dark phrases are usually deployed to signal the end of democracy, but Debasish Roy Chowdhury and John Keane refreshingly use history, marshal facts and weave a complex and compelling narrative on why India’s democracy stands at a dangerous crossroad.]

[Roy and Keane invoke Periyar’s worldview, of the essence of democracy being equality and freedom for each of its members. It is not limited to elections where “bread and fish” secure votes and sap the system of its essence. A “well-functioning democracy requires a special kind of social life. Democracy is freedom from hunger, humiliation and violence... It’s freedom from fear and the right not to be killed. It’s equal access to decent medical care and sympathy for those who have fallen behind. Democracy is a learned sense of worldly wonder. It’s the everyday ability to handle unexpected situations wisely. It’s the rejection of the dogma that things can’t be changed because they’re ‘naturally’ fixed in stone.”]

This is not too far from Dr. Ambedkar’s warning in an interview to the BBC in 1953 that the authors quote. Frustrated by opposition to his plans to reform Hindu personal laws, he did not think much of the chances of Indian democracy surviving “for the simple reason that we have got a social structure which is totally incompatible with parliamentary democracy.”

[Keane’s The New Despotism on ills plaguing several democracies including India was valuable in understanding the contemporary crises, where he argued that elections and popular will were being used to conjure up support for despotic and authoritarian rule. This, he argued, was not just an imposition. A significant section of the population was willingly supporting the despot.]

[Democracy is ultimately “insubordination: the refusal to put up with everyday forms of snobbery and toad-eating, idolatry and lying, bullshit and bullying.” The problem that the reader is left with is, can this be done in the absence of social democracy? As the authors conclude, “if despotism replaces democracy then this isn’t because despotic power is somehow inevitable, but because citizens allow it to happen.” Citizens will have to be the proverbial Atticus Finch to prevent the killing of India’s democracy.]

14 September 2021 - Terrorism

Joanna Walters and Alvin Chang - 8 September 2021 in Guardian reports. Some how report does not inform why increase in right wing terror is proportional to jihadist terror attacks. Authors gave detailed report of terror attacks for both the groups. It is worth reading.

"Its report concluded that far-right extremists killed 114 people spanning more than three dozen violent attacks, while US-based individuals it terms “jihadists” killed 107 people across 14 attacks.

New America considered far-right domestic terrorism to consist of anti-government, militia-related, white supremacist, and anti-abortion violent threats and acts. The thinktank outlined domestic “jihadism” as those espousing versions of the late Osama bin Laden’s ideology aiming at global war to establish theocratic fundamentalist-Islamic regimes, and influenced but not funded or trained by overseas terrorist groups.

The report said: “Far from being foreign infiltrators, the large majority of jihadist terrorists in the United States have been American citizens or legal residents” including those involved in “every lethal attack except one” since 9/11."

Far-right terror poses bigger threat to US than Islamist extremism post-9/11 | US news | The Guardian

I am interested in creating a welfare world. Scandinavia, Europe, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand states have welfare systems of different types. All states must provide free education, free medical aid, and comfortable housing to all citizens of the welfare world. 

वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम and सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनाः (the world is our family and all should be healthy, happy and comfortable). I found that there is no suitable word in English for Sukhi hona. 




How can we unite the people of the world? I am still discussing this with political leaders and academics. 


I am convinced that democracy is the reasonable and rational method to govern humanity. Non-violence is an essential tool to achieve democracy in non-democratic countries.


I believe that we all are human beings. All can not be educated, rich, healthy, happy, and comfortable. Some shall always be saints, altruistic, innovative, selfish, criminals, and creative. We act as per our destiny, which is governed by planets. Democracy and liberalism are the goals of civilized society. I agree with John Rawls that some are rogue states. Human rights are as important as human duties.

All religions preach methods to live happily. We shall teach humanity methods to eliminate the identity of religion, gender, territory, and color.

War causes genocide, mass killing, migration, hunger, rape, in other words, suffering to humanity. My dissertation aims to achieve and maintain peace, for peace provides sustainable growth, prosperity, and happiness. If we follow John Rawls's veil of ignorance and ask people of the world, I am sure that all may like to live in peace and prosperity.

But the question is how to achieve peace for the people of the world, who are 9 billion in number with different cultures, colors, races, and goals. Some are rich, educated, cooperative, generous, hardworking, nonviolent, democratic, and others are selfish, illiterate, jealous, power-hungry, rogue, and believe political power comes out of the barrel of a gun or with modern technology and weapons of mass destruction. Asymmetric war and hidden greed of war industries are tearing all boundaries of nation-states. Due to this conflicting nature, humanity lost 865 million fellow human beings from 1945 to 1990.

Nothing can be achieved individually. There should be teamwork and organization. It involves politics. Administrative reforms can tackle these politics and small conflicts. But what about the personality clash between state leaders and the power politics of corrupt political leaders in the states. The Westphalian system, league of nations, and United Nations failed to bring peace and prosperity to humankind. In Afghanistan United Nations, the British, Russia, the US with European powers could not bring peace and democracy. What should be the solution under new world conditions?

James Madison rightly said, “If men were angels, no government would be necessary.”

As of today, we all are dependent on each other. The world has shrunk to a small family. Information travels faster than light and in many directions.The world is spending a lot of money to maintain the sanctity of national boundaries. But states are independent. The environment is degrading. United Nations failed in managing sustainable industrial and population growth. Urbanization is causing social problems. Fear of nuclear war by AI Robots and Thucydides' phenomena may cause a conflict of unheard damage to humanity.

That is why it is essential to study the governing political methods adopted by India, China, and Europe. I shall research the governance structure adopted by MNCs. My dissertation shall explain, should humanity adopt a Unipolar, bipolar or multipolar world? Are[JD1]  there any peaceful methods to achieve a unipolar world? Even if we achieve peace, how long can we maintain that peace? I hope my dissertation shall answer the said questions. One should think beyond and create a new political system for a new welfare world for the next generation.

After retirement, I am studying how we can bring peace to humanity. [I am writing a dissertation on "theoretical and empirical comparative analysis of the potential benefits of the multipolar and unipolar systems for the world peace]."

28 October 2021
Russia has just concluded large-scale military drills with Tajikistan near its border with Afghanistan. The Taliban takeover there has been a cause for concern for some of its northern neighbors. Tajikistan has refused to recognize the militants' authority and has teamed up with Russia to beef up border security. The tensions come ahead of talks between the Taliban and regional powers. DW Moscow Bureau chief Juri Rescheto was invited as a member of the press to observe the joint exercises - although independent reporting is restricted. He sent us this report. Led by Russian troops, a total of four thousand Tajik, Belarusian, Kazakh and Armenian soldiers are practicing anti-terrorist maneuvers. In Tajikistan - close to the border with Afghanistan - Russia and its allies hope that these military exercises will send a clear message to the Taliban and the wider world. They want to show that their forces are united and committed to the fight against international terrorism. Fears that terrorism could be on the rise following the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan have led to the strengthening of military cooperation within the so-called Collective Security Treaty Organization, a Russian-led military alliance of several former Soviet Union states. Russia has had a long and dramatic relationship with Afghanistan and has kept its distance from the country after a failed attempt to install a communist government in Kabul in the 1980s. But after the Taliban seized power earlier this year, Russia has been trying to sell itself as a mediator - between the West and the new rulers. Analysts think Moscow is trying to seize the opportunity to exert its influence on the entire region - especially on the Central Asian states of the former Soviet Union: The Russian Foreign Ministry recently invited a delegation of the Taliban to Moscow for talks, despite the fact that the radical Islamists are officially considered a terrorist organization in Russia. But that could change. But until then, Russia is flexing its muscles in Tajikistan, on the border with Afghanistan - shoulder to shoulder with its allies.

Russia is challenging terrorism and doing military exercises near Afghanistan border with Tajikstan and other Russian allies.

1. Farnaz Fassihi writes in New York Times October 26, 2021: The episode has turned into a classic lesson in “be careful what you wish for.”

“Iran has come to understand that the enemy’s enemy is not your friend, and the Taliban are a more complex problem than Americans,” said Mohammad Hossein Emadi, a former Iranian diplomat who advised Afghanistan’s government and worked in the country for the United Nations. “The consensus is to deal with the Taliban very carefully and pragmatically.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/26/world/middleeast/iran-taliban-afghanistan.html

2. The collapse of the Afghan republic was no accident. It was the culmination of many collective failures, but at the heart of the tragedy was the role played by one country: Pakistan. https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-pakistan-won-in-afghanistan-taliban-india-borders-11635263372

The Taliban’s military victory in Afghanistan is only the start of the group’s problems. The new government will fail because the Taliban cannot be pragmatic and ideological at the same time. Efforts by the Afghan jihadist movement to strike a balance will be exploited by ISIS—a transnational jihadist movement—and other groups, imperiling regional and international security. When that happens, the U.S. and its allies will have to return to the war-torn nation.

Advocating democracy is good, but waging war for the expansion of democracy is not advisable. Peace is to be maintained to achieve sustainable goals for humanity.
Next-generation of the humanity of all states must understand that war destroys person, property, culture, and social norms. War inculcates sin in society. Science and technology have evaporated the boundaries of states.
Javier M. Piedra writes "Moreover, India has established red lines, which were evident when Modi told the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Dushanbe that “together, we should ensure that the territory of Afghanistan is not used to spread terrorism in any other country. SCO member countries should develop strict and agreed norms on this subject.”
China, Russia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Iran are all in agreement with India.
Modi appreciates the danger of India using its military to nation-build. Others have tried it to their grief. Smart diplomacy works better than geopolitical bullying, even when disguised under a thick overlay of humanitarian concern and ideological democracy promotion."
"Modi and Jaishankar know that India can handle its own affairs. It will not allow NATO-flagged “over-the-horizon” strikes into Afghanistan, even as it exercises diplomatic tact in its public utterances about Afghanistan, the Taliban, and Western policy."

Imran Khan confirms that the Pakistan army was training Jihadis and the Taliban. Imran Khan supports Haqqani group actions. (5:00) Haqqani is a tribe lives in Afghanistan and Their leadership was born in refugee camps in Pakistan. Haqqanies were refugees in Pakistan. Pakistan agency was supporting and training. According to Imran Khan Pakistan did not have money to train Haqqani or Jihadists. Money was given by the US only. We were hired by the US to wage a war against Afghanistan (12:00). The biggest concern is refugees in Pakistan. Second, we are flooded by terrorist Blochs and other Afghanis. If the world does not favor Afghanistan, Pakistan shall also be in trouble. Let Afghans decide their destiny. 

Imran Riaz Khan - TV reporter and analyst of Pakistan government - reports that Bradar group popular in Kandhar had verbal/actual physical fight with Haqqani group. Haqqani group believe that the army defeated the US. Haqqani must rule not the Barader group who were enjoying negotiations in Doha Qatar. 
It is informed that Barader is either killed or seriously sick in the hospital. Pakistan suffered due to US army drone attacks in Pakistan. Gulbadin Hukamtiyar appreciates Pakistan's help.

Last week, the Taliban announced it would allow 200 Americans and other civilians to leave Afghanistan on charter flights, according to a US official. The de-facto government set up by the Taliban will be led by Mohammad Hasan Akhund as acting prime minister, Al-Jazeera reports. Akhund was the foreign minister and deputy prime minister during the Taliban's previous time in power from 1996-2001. Since January, an estimated 270,000 Afghans have been forced from their homes amid Taliban advances, foreign troop withdrawal, and declining security, according to the UN refugee agency.

Summary till 14 September 2021
I was searching solution for the Afghanistan conflict. I was advocating Johan Galtung's peace formula that federally administered Afghanistan with a democratic center should be the right solution. But it did not happen. Taliban took over Afghanistan by declaring war. It is important to note that Bush declared war on terror on September 12, 2011.

After capturing Kabul on 15 August Taliban declared "war is over". Taliban leaders were trained by Pakistan and before announcing the Afghanistan government ISI chief visited Afghanistan. At the last minute name of the prime minister was changed from Barader to Hassan.

The United States negotiated peace with Pakistan and the Taliban. Defense Secretary and Home Secretary took active part and agreed and announced in Doha Qatar. Both thanked Qatar Amirs. The fate of Saleh - ex-vice president/acting president once Ghani flew and Masoud of Panj Shir is not known. It is informed that they are in Tajikistan and Panj Shir. According to me, information is not declared by the Taliban fearing mass revolt in Kabul. I wish both are alive.

Taliban invited Turkey, Iran, China, Russia, Pakistan and Qatar to the final oath-taking ceremony. Turkey took an active part on behalf of NATO as well as Pakistan as a Muslim country. Most of the leaders in the new Afghanistan government are well-known designated terrorists by the United Nations and America (Democratic countries).

According to Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Afghanistan "Afghanistan’s problems run so deep, have been so long-lasting, and are so dire that it is the collective responsibility of the whole international community to offer assistance, he said." New York times informs.

Taliban is telling us that they have not changed, an opinion by Toby Harnden 10 September 2021 New York Times Opinion article. "We didn’t just lose to the Taliban. We left them stronger than we found them" wrote Michelle Goldberg Sept 9, 2021 in New York Times opinion article.
"Time and again we see how cataclysmic news overturns the world we know. And catastrophes follow an unassuming morning paper. Which is why quiet mornings can seem especially foreboding, especially if the sky is a perfect blue" wrote Ralph Blumenthal 10 September 2021 New York Times "A time capsule in two front pages".

Afghanistan's population is 38 million. Exact senses are not available. Pashtoons are around 40-43%. Tajik around 35%, Hazara 10%, Uzbek and Turk around 10%. Afghans are more loyal to their tribes than to Afghanistan. Language, tribe, and memory imbibe loyalty.

14 September 2021
Major Gaurav Arya interviews Major General Dhruv Katoch (Retd). Katoch emphasizes more on the ideology of terrorism that is religious and mysticism. These goals are absolute and irreconcilable with political negotiations. Hardly 0.1% of Muslims can create havoc in democracy. Other Muslim populations may be silent spectators. This is a great challenge for Indian democracy.

The underpinning ideology is Salafi jihadism. Salafi jihadists fight on local fronts and are taught in Madrasas.

Every action is equal to an equal and opposite reaction. "We Americans kill with Inchoate fury, the evil we do is the evil we get" Chris Hedges 11 September 2021, Geopolitics 101.

Chris Hedges writes  "America was attacked because the virtues we espouse are a lie. We were attacked for our hypocrisy. We were attacked for the campaigns of industrial slaughter that are our primary way of speaking with the rest of the planet. Robert McNamara, the Secretary of Defense in the summer of 1965, called the bombing raids, which would eventually kill hundreds of thousands of civilians north of Saigon, a form of communication with the communist government in Hanoi. 

The lives of Iraqis, Afghanis, Syrians, Libyans, and Yemenis are as precious as the lives of those killed in the Twin Towers. But this understanding, this ability to see the world as the world saw us, eluded Americans who, refusing to acknowledge the blood on their own hands, instantly bifurcated the world into good and evil, us and them, the blessed and the damned. The country drank deep of the dark elixir of nationalism, the heady elevation of us as a noble and wronged people. The flip side of nationalism is always racism. And the poisons of racism and hate infected the American nation to propel it into the greatest strategic blunder in its history, one from which it will never recover". 




11 September 2021
"The war against terror was not successful in the way it was conducted. The war against terror was counterproductive and in the end, led to more terror. In the end, it helped the Taliban to return to power. (9:11 to 9:50). Let us not view everything as just a militaristic problem. Let us not combat terror with weapons only. It needs a different approach. It needs diplomacy. It needs development. It needs dialogue" Sandra Petersmann DW Correspondent said. Look at Bin Laden report page by Sandra.

Indian, Pak, Chinese, Russian, European, German, United States, and other countries' news channels do not inform facts. Representatives of many news channels depend on their sources, which zero to the same informer. All news channels twist the news and create differences between the people. Unluckily each state thinks for the benefit of its citizens. No state thinks for the benefit of humanity.

Why should I object if China or Pakistan wants to send food and medicines to Afghanistan if I think beyond the matchbox? People must understand that we reap what we sow. Every action is equal to an equal and opposite reaction. In social sciences, the intensity of the reaction may increase or decrease for good and worse. The reaction is also known as a grievance in social science. Greed instigates action, and grievance causes conflict.

World war from European doors (the 1940s) is shifting towards Asian subcontinent (2020s). Past experience teaches humanity that scientific and technological development increases the severity of war effects.
The new generation must devise new methods to counter asymmetric proxy war, leading to full-scale war.
Many leaders discuss "the war on terror" started by the United States and "the war is over" declared by the Taliban. But, who did support the Taliban? Taliban was a group of terrorists, not even a government/state. But Taliban could defeat the greatest and wealthiest state of the world. CIA, KGB, RAW, MI 6, and many others discuss this issue and learn from each other who fooled whom.
China - Pakistan - Afghanistan nexus has opened the door for new alignment for the new world order. The fate of Amarullah Saleh and Ahmad Masoud is under speculation.
“We should make an objective assessment of the history of the Afghan issue and call on the United States and its allies to learn profound lessons and assume their due responsibilities on the Afghan issue,” Mr. Wang was quoted as saying by the Chinese government. New York Times writes https://www.nytimes.com/.../afghanistan-kabul-airport...
“The aid does not represent recognition of the Taliban,” he said, adding, “China is particularly concerned about whether the Taliban can cut ties with Al Qaeda, as well as protect ethnic minorities, women’s rights and fulfill its promises.”

Matthieu Aikins, Salman Masood and 
"The Taliban, who witnesses say crushed several small protests around the country on Wednesday, have been rounding up scores of demonstrators and subjecting them to abuse in overcrowded jails, according to journalists who were present. The repression followed a Taliban announcement Tuesday that protests would not be allowed without government approval".

Who are the Taliban's new government leaders?

7 September 2021

"India must act fast. India should not leave her friends." Major General Bakshi talks about the strategy India must adopt under the new environment. According to General Bakshi, the United States and NATO can withdraw from the war on terror but it may be the necessity of India to fight the war on terror.
All said and done, I appreciate Imran Khan Prime Minister of Pakistan, and Narender Bhai Modi of India. Listen to the speech of Imran Khan.

Pompeo: Taliban likely to continue 'vindictive' revenge killings.
According to AAJ Tak report (23:44) Many people were killed during this very costly war. American Service 2448, American contract people 3846, 66000 Afghan Police, 1144 NATO people, 47245 Afghan Citizens, 51191 Taliban and Northern Alliance, 444 help workers, 72 News Reporters, after spending trillion dollars war on terror returned by empowering Taliban (including assistant of Bin Laden).
I am of the opinion leadership must decide. One can criticize the method or timing of the withdrawal, but the mistake committed must be rectified by the leader in power.
Should there not be any criticism? No action taken is as harmful as any decision taken in haste. In a democracy, all leaders are right and correct, till leaders do not adopt violent means. Motive is more important in this case.

Afghan conflict teaches humanity that corruption is the root cause of conflict. It also proves theories advocated by scholarships that greed and grievance cause conflict.
I am of the opinion that the Taliban must cooperate with Pakistan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikstan, and China. Interests of Russia and India must be considered to bring peace. It means Afghanistan opens borders and practices democracy. To achieve peace give and take is a reasonable approach.
Ground realities are explained by Indian and Pakistan TV news channels. Nothing is clear. Humanitarian aid to Panj Shir should be dropped at the earliest.

I wrote a long time back that India can talk of peace only. War is not in the Indian blood. Indian Kings were attacked many times, but Indian kings fought just war. Invaders were always cruel, looted, and raped. Indian (Hindu's) Sanskrit and other south Indian languages explain the Indian psychic of non-violence. In addition, Indians are by birth democratic.
Demographic change in Kashmir facilitated Hindu migration. Buddha statue was blasted in the Hazara district of Afghanistan. India must coordinate with democracy and maintain close cultural relations with China. India must strengthen its tested friendship with Russia.
India missed many opportunities during Sonia's political time.
"India’s never exported war, conflict, or terror. She is best known for her Gurus, the Vedas, meditation, yoga, and wisdom and when a westerner is looking to answer the big questions of life, they travel to India. Yet the whole history of India is the west trying to civilize her" Patrick Braumann.

Mr. Borrell is the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, and vice president of the European Commission.

"The task could not be more urgent. The Taliban’s return to power brings with it the risk of renewed terrorist attacks, a growth in drug trafficking and a large amount of irregular migration. We must be resolute in combating these threats, as well as in responding to a changed regional landscape. China, Russia and Iran will have greater sway in the region, while Pakistan, India, Turkey and Gulf monarchies will all reposition themselves. We cannot let them be the only interlocutors with Afghanistan after the Western withdrawal. Europe, along with the United States, has to reframe its engagement....Some events catalyze history: The Afghanistan debacle is one of them. We Europeans must learn its lessons".

I am reproducing highlights of the message "Afghanistan is not going to become Talibanistan; it will remain a pluralistic state, country ....Taliban are a group. Let’s force them, let’s force their backers, to engage in meaningful negotiations for a political settlement. Let’s force them not to mistreat the Afghan women. Let’s force them not to mistreat civil society organizations, NGOs, and others who are still engaged to safeguard humanity, to safeguard the rights of the ordinary Afghan people.... The solution is not abandonment. The solution is not losing hope. The solution is not surrendering to darkness. The solution is standing tall, believing that no force, no force on earth, can and should be allowed to subdue humanity, to crush it.

$85 billion worth state of Art Military Equipment gifted to Taliban by Joe Biden. This Equipment, in fact, is reserve for PAKISTAN Forces. All given free, unaccounted and on a platter by Joe Biden. Do you still believe one is being over-imaginative?

BREAKING: Pres. Biden says he's ordered his commanders "to develop operational plans to strike ISIS-K assets, leadership, and facilities."
"We will respond with force and precision at our time, at the place we choose and the moment of our choosing." http://abcn.ws/2WsLA2a

I wrote on 17 August 2021 that It may be too early to say that Afghanistan solved its political, economic, and social problems, and there shall be peace. I shall be adding information as it changes.In 10 days situation changed in Afghanistan. On 26 August 2021 evening US, Britain, and Russia informed us that within hours we are expecting violence near the airport. It happened. Biden is criticized. Biden told that we shall take revenge and terrorists cannot escape. The situation may change soon. Afghanistan resistance of Panj Shir may prepare himself to take action against the Taliban.

Read new player in Afghanistan known as ISIS-K 

Who is ISIS-K, group behind Kabul airport bombing, hated by US and Taliban by Jamie Ensor in Newshub, NZ dated 27 August 2021. "ISIS-K, also known as Islamic State-Khorasan Province, is an affiliate of Islamic State active in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The group gets its moniker from Khorasan, a historical region covering what is now Afghanistan and other parts of central Asia.

It was formed in 2015 after six members of the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan Islamic militant group broke away and pledged allegiance to then-Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Its focus is to control the Khorasan region and set it up to be part of Islamic State's caliphate."

Afghanistan's population is 36 million Afghanis. The crisis is who is now in charge? What is the main crisis now? It is airlifting crisis. All are worried about their people? The international staff has already left. There is a women crisis, humanitarian crisis, as there is no electricity, water, no government in Afghanistan. Taliban did not follow the agreement. Intelligence informed the US, but President clicked to his decision. Withdrawl decision and planning were wrong. America decided to go alone to attack the US. Now they could not ask the UN to take help. Mistakes were committed by the US and allied who followed blindly. America spent money in Afghanistan, but money was used by American contractors. In Afghanistan UN failed, but the UN was overlooked by the US.
The NRF's ultimate goal is a decentralized form of governance in the country. Johan Galtung and I were advocating for a long that decentralized federal power-sharing is the only solution for the diverse ethnic population of Afghanistan. People are divided by mountains, rivers, and their neighbors.
"The NRF believes that for lasting peace, we have to address the underlying problems in Afghanistan," he continued. "Afghanistan is a country made up of ethnic minorities; no one is a majority. It's a multicultural state, so it needs power-sharing - a power-sharing deal where everyone sees themselves in power." And I add equal.
Listen to Fox News and its criticism of the President of the United States of America. I am reproducing as it is being circulated in WhatsApp news around the world. Media is the fourth pillar of democracy, but she is invoking anger and hatred. I do not like it. But perhaps this is the power of the internet.

"Moscow has sent four military transport planes to evacuate more than 500 people, the defense ministry said on Wednesday, including Russians and citizens of Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Ukraine." — Financial Times
27 August 2021
Russia withdraws 500 Russians from Afghanistan. Uyghurs fear the Taliban more than Chinese.

27 August 2021
The Taliban’s military victory in Afghanistan is only the start of the group’s problems. The new government will fail because the Taliban cannot be pragmatic and ideological at the same time. Efforts by the Afghan jihadist movement to strike a balance will be exploited by ISIS—a transnational jihadist movement—and other groups, imperiling regional and international security. When that happens, the U.S. and its allies will have to return to the war-torn nation.

Afghan lives matter. Black lives matter. Muslim lives matter. All lives matter. 
I dream of democracy without borders and people without borders.

Facebook writings about Afghanistan on 24 August 2021

23 August 2021 History of Afghanistan 2000-1500 BC onwards
1. The history of Afghanistan explained by Epimetheus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6usr-C3lcQ
2. Afghanistan was alright. During the cold war period, Russia and China used to interfere in other countries with socialist and communist ideology, including the ideology of Mao that political power comes out of a barrel of a gun. Russia invaded Afghanistan and propagated a government supported by Russia. During this period, the US was doing the same in South America. Read Al Jazeera and statement of Mrs. Laura Bush (First Lady of USA) and action of US in Argentina. (To pick one example from an endless multitude, there was that time in the 1970s that the US gave the military junta in Argentina a carte blanche to go after its own “terrorists” – in this case, some 30,000 suspected leftists who were dropped from airplanes to their maritime deaths or otherwise dispensed with- Al Jazeera 21 August 2021 - Belen Fernandez)
To counter Russian influence, the US created Al Qaeda, Mujahideen, and Taliban and used Pakistan ISI as a tool. After 9/11, Bush used AI Robot Planes and killed many Muzaideen and Taliban people of FATA. Pashtuns felt sorry to help the USA and took a position against the US. Taliban and all terrorist activities were against the US. Ghani also acted like a slave to the US. People of Iraq, Iran, and other Arab countries, including Pakistan opposed the US. Ultimately Trump decided to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan. This withdrawal has unstabilizing effect in this part of Asia. 
West is facing more threats. Pakistan and many Jihadists are celebrating. Pak used US money to defeat the US (1:00) onwards. Friends may consider the US as not a relied partner than China and Russia. Col said in Fox News on 23 August. Retired colonel warns Jihadists around the world are celebrating. According to Col, President Biden should not be impeached but court marshaled as he is the head of the Army. This shall change US position around the world. Pakistan Ex general said on Tv Show that it will be said that ISI defeated the Soviet Union in war by taking money from the US. It will also be said that ISI defeated the US by taking money from the US. Dunya News. Lt General (Retd) Hamid Gul (32:12). [Hamid Gul is a very good speaker. I heard his speech and talked about Kissinger's book on one world order www.darsequran.com (Pakistan Aur Allah Ka Qanoon). It looks he was the founder of ISI. Constitution of Pakistan provides on Insaniyat. (Speech is only 7:50).  https://twitter.com/ChBilal735/status/1430087780978282507

22 August 2021
Pakistan wants to be a partner in peace. Pakistan is a victim of the war on terror. We suffered 80000 casualties, two million IDP, and hosted Afghan refugees. (0:39 to 1:40).  Nobody listened to us. If you waste one year in Doha, Pakistan is not responsible. We were not consulted for with drawl of US Army. Still, we are trying our best to evacuate people. Whom do you hold responsible for Afghanistan crisis? Minister answered that Ghani told that things have gone wrong for Pakistan sent 10000 people. How could the Taliban move so quickly? It is a mistake by Ghani. Here are in my office, leaders of the northern alliance met, and we are trying our best to agree on an inclusive government. Pakistan can be the most trusted interlocutor in this evolving situation, said the minister. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aPZk2O2qNc
But Fox news information informs different positions in Kabul.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Qx-4LgxsTs
Biden is responsible for lying. 

1/. "Afghanistan: It is an awkward feeling to read all these articles by so-called peers & journalists NOW parroting in unison with at times slight individual thematic deviations on the issue, all the problems IN HINDSIGHT, that are, from my point of view, unheeded early warnings." https://twitter.com/JohanGaltung/status/1429400386188763141 Galtung said federal Afghanistan is the only solution.
https://twitter.com/the_hindu/status/1429398090914557953
Indian channels are showing different opinions of people than Pakistani media. Worth listening to Geo News about the role played by weapon industries. Most of the leaders who assembled in Pakistan at the request of the Pakistan army and foreign minister agree that Ghani and Ghani associates, corruption, and America failed the Afghani government.

"Panjshir is one of the thirty-four provinces of Afghanistan and is divided into seven districts with 512 villages. As of 2021, the population of Panjshir province was about 173,000. Bazarak is the provincial capital of Panjshir. Ahmad is the eldest among Massoud senior’s six children, and he is the only son. He has launched an anti-Taliban front from the picturesque valley of Afghanistan's Panjshir province along with Amrullah Saleh, who was the Vice-President of Afghanistan in the Ashraf Ghani government and now claims to be the caretaker President".

 86% of refugees are in developing countries. 

Taliban must negotiate peace with the acting President of Afghanistan to save Afghanis from bloodshed. In addition, the Taliban must learn lessons from history.
Federal democracy is the only solution for Afghanistan. So do not lose time, and don't be hubris.

Internationally it is accepted that ISI and Pakistan supported the Taliban. Taliban is the ground reality. China, Russia, and Iran already accept it. Taliban has gained militarily.

It may be too early to say that Afghanistan solved its political problem, and there shall be peace.

"I appreciate Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan. His speech is worth listening to. He is explaining about English language and the chain of slavery thoughts in Pakistan. He is appreciating Muslim culture and about Allah. Allah ordered us to follow the path of Nabi. One should learn from HIS character. People will understand the goodness and the philosophy of life if they follow Allah.
Imran Khan said, "it is challenging to break the slavery accepted and tuned by the mind."
Pakistan society is divided into three segments due to education. He also spoke about environmental degradation and the greed of elites. Education with ethics is important. Some use religion for brutal deeds. All religions teach humanity. All teach truth and love for humanity. He congratulated the organizer. According to Imran Khan, he dreamt this for many years. Imran Khan is a noncorrupt leader of Pakistan as Narender Bhai Modi of India."

"Pakistan or America, who helped Taliban? । TALIBAN । AFGHANISTAN । ALOK JOSHI बिना एक भी बूंद खून बहाए तालिबान ने फिर काबुल जीत लिया। तो बीस साल से अमेरिका ने अफगानिस्तान में किया क्या? तालिबान को कहां से मिली इतनी ताकत, और कौन दे रहा था उसे शह? आलोक जोशी से वरिष्ठ पाकिस्तानी पत्रकार शाहज़ेब जीलानी की दो टूक बातचीत। The Taliban again conquered Kabul without shedding a single drop of blood. So what did America do in Afghanistan for twenty years? From where did the Taliban get so much power, and who was giving it support?

Mullah Baradar was in jail in Pakistan and was released, as per this tweet. "It needs confirmation. Mullah Baradar, head of the Taliban, was in jail in Pakistan until he was released at the behest of the US. I shall again post this picture from 1983. Criticizing the Taleban is not supporting US imperialism. It’s the US that has supported the Taleban".

Johan Galtung writes after the Taliban took over Kabul. "Absolutely fascinating regression in the official & journalistic discourses of the west: No, this is not the moment to bash them, this is still the opportunity to reengage dialogue with the Taliban. Who on here knows what the Taliban want economically, politically & regionally?"

Given the deteriorating security situation, we support, are working to secure, and call on all parties to respect and facilitate the safe and orderly departure of foreign nationals and Afghans who wish to leave the country. Those in positions of power and authority across Afghanistan bear responsibility—and accountability—for protecting human life and property and for the immediate restoration of security and civil order.

Afghans and international citizens who wish to depart must be allowed to do so; roads, airports, and border crossing must remain open, and calm must be maintained.

The Afghan people deserve to live in safety, security, and dignity. We in the international community stand ready to assist them."

Pakistan news information. 

3 million Afghans are refugees in Pakistan. These refugees are going back to Afghanistan and returning back to Pakistan. Pakistan can't control it. We have recently built a border fence. Earlier, there was no fence. What is the interest of Pakistan to take over Afghanistan? Earlier, it was the interest of strategic depth, for India had an interest in Afghanistan. Afghanistan had a history that it does not accept other party's dominance. So it has to be independent. President Ghani of Afghanistan did not want people coming from Pakistan. What can Pakistan do with them? Taliban leaders have families in Pakistan. What can we do with them? We shall not do any military action in Pakistan or Afghanistan. It is in our interest to maintain peace in Afghanistan.

one million people were internally displaced when Pakistan took action in Wazirabad after a lot of pressure from America to take action in Wazirabad. How can the US achieve peace by having bases in Pakistan? The US could not do anything while remaining in Afghanistan.

We Pakistan and Afghanistan need each other. So it shall be mutually beneficial for both countries. There was a strong linkage between Pakistan and Afghanistan earlier since a long time (25:00)

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan talks about Afghanistan in an interview with PBS hour news.
He agrees that it should be the decision of Afghans. Pakistan never favored a military solution. The people of Afghanistan must decide. Pakistan is not supporting the Taliban.



20 July 2021

Pakistani Ambassador to the USA informs about the situation in Afghanistan once the US left the country. "Khan pointed to the Troika Plus Declaration — made by Russia, China, Pakistan, and the United States — as an example of this regional consensus, which, among other things, asserts that the Taliban and the Afghan government will need to come to a common understanding and reach a political settlement to end the war.

Pakistan’s complicated relationship with the Taliban has long been a point of discord between Washington and Islamabad. Islamabad has been widely criticized opprobrium for providing support and safe haven to the Afghan Taliban". https://www.usip.org/publications/2021/07/us-pakistan-convergence-afghanistan-says-pakistani-envoy
