I've watching events in our neighborhood since BD was born.
I've to add context to what Elizabeth has witnessed & narrates.
1. @INCIndia accepted partition of India but tried to overplay by saying
2 Nation Theory
is wrong.
2. Birth of BD simultaneously gave birth
to global Jihad.
3. Kissinger retailed defeat of Pakistan as insult to Islam.
4. OPEC was made to cartelize crude prices to generate petro-dollars for jihad.
5. Dollar became legal tender for global Trade.

7. Clergy were globally tasked to arrange HR to carry Wahhabism to fight socialist winds blowing in #Afghanistan

Russia and China were masterfully wedged by the Nixon Admin and Kissinger with the help of Pakistan, which was then led by Gen Yahya.
Now, history has brought the two Cold War Rivals closer.
This will create new Geopolitical, Geoeconomics and Geostrategic risks for the USA.
The biggest foreign policy and strategic failure of the USA has been that it didn't see the thaw between Iran and KSA coming
The entire Muslim world is now bifurcated into Russian & Chinese Camps
Hardly any Muslim nation will back America if a war breaks out between larger powers
Pakistan, the only Moslem Power with nuclear weapons, is the closest Chinese Ally not just in South Asia but the whole world.
It's akin to Italy under the Axis Power cosigned Pact of Steel or how Austro Hungarian Empire was buttressing the Kaiser.
BRI's epicentre is Gawadar.

Distract and divert: How Tony Blair screens his role in Iraq War

20 years on, #Blair lashes out at #Putin to divert public attention from the atrocities he was behind in #Iraq, not to mention his role in the #Afghanistan war.
This month, twenty years ago, the #UnitedStates initiated a large military invasion of #Iraq alongside its ally, the #UK, without a @UN mandate and in defiance of some of the biggest demonstrations ever seen in Britain.
It was the start of an eight-year occupation that resulted in the deaths of more than one million Iraqi.

La @BBCNews sta di nuovo ricevendo molte critiche nel Regno Unito, stavolta per un'inchiesta che ha denunciato come diverse calciatrici afgane arrivate nel paese in fuga dai talebani non sarebbero in realtà giocatrici di calcio.

Nel novembre 2021, 35 calciatrici afgane e le loro famiglie (130 persone in tutto) sono state accolte nel Regno Unito, dopo essere scappate dal loro paese in Pakistan, da cui poi hanno ottenuto rifugio in UK.

Ma secondo la testata britannica, 13 di esse non sarebbero in realtà state giocatrici del Herat Youth Team, come dichiarato nella domanda per il visto d'ingresso in UK. La domanda legittima è: fa differenza se fossero o no giocatrici di calcio?

Bier-Affäre in Afghanistan - Untersuchungsausschuss klärt auf! Ein #Thread. (…)
Von vielen vergessen & trotzdem wichtig. Heute tagt im Bundestag seit Stunden wieder der #Untersuchungsausschuss zu #Afghanistan. Ich will Euch zwei Geschichten daraus erzählen. Eine lustige - und eine traurige. Erst die lustige. (…)
In #Afghanistan hatten die deutschen Soldaten zeitweise sehr, sehr, sehr viel Bier, Wein, Alkohol. 23.000 Liter. Dabei galt - formell - zunächst die Zwei-Dosen-Regelung: Zwei Dosen pro Soldat pro Tag. Jedenfalls theoretisch. Dann wurde das einem General zu viel. (…)

"Je ne renverrai pas mon fils là-bas (NDR: en #Afghanistan) pour risquer sa vie au profit des droits des femmes. Ca ne marchera pas, nous ne sommes pas là-bas pour ça" (Joe #Biden, alors VP d'Obama à Richard Holbrooke en 2010)
2. On ne le répétera jamais assez mais la présidence #Biden et le président lui-même étaient très conscients de ce qu'il adviendrait des droits des femmes avec les #Talibans au pouvoir en Afghanistan. Mais pour lui cela ne justifiait pas une présence militaire US aussi longue... si le retrait US avait été décidé par #Trump puis par #Biden avec l'illusion du maintien d'un gouvernement non taliban à Kaboul qui s'effondre juste avant le départ des soldats étasuniens...

Pubblichiamo una riflessione della scrittrice e giornalista Marina Terragni, femminista e autrice di numerosi saggi sulle donne. Per il suo contributo alla campagna
#avvenireperdonneafghane, Terragni si è ispirata al ritratto di una sfollata della provincia di Herat, della fotografa romana Laura Salvinelli. La giovane vive in un campo nel mezzo di un deserto di sabbia e pietra senza nessuna assistenza da parte del governo afghano...
ragazza sembra una piccola regina che forse venderebbe il suo regno per una scuola. Ricordo bene cos’è stata la scuola, la maestra con il grembiule chiazzato di gesso che mi ha aiutato a capire chi avrei voluto essere. Nel campo dove la ragazza vive, sfollata in mezzo un deserto

#Afghanistan | 🧵

1/ On the evening of Feb 8, at least several hundred people gathered at #Kabul International Airport after rumours circulated of flights to Turkey being arranged for Afghans to support the earthquake relief effort, with all visa requirements being waived. Image
2/ On Feb 19, the Taliban’s GDI released a video showing the ‘confession’ of two #Afghan satirists, Imran Ahmadzai and Sadullah Didan, who were accused of spreading the rumours of the flights to #Turkey, as well as anti-regime propaganda. Image
3/ AW found three posts by Ahmadzai on Feb 8, when the rush to the airport was underway, and he pretended to be among the crowds. All the posts generated a reasonable level of engagement but not at a level likely to have been a major catalyst to the rumours of flights to #Turkey.
