Check out “Before & After” #USA Meddling: From #Iraq to #Afghanistan #Libya & #Syria. Missions Accomplished? Numbers & Facts. - - - “Nearly 4,000 Afghan civilians killed or wounded in first half of 2019, UN says” sabahdai.ly/1dh6z9
...And then define that “Mission”. Interestingly, 3 out of 4, targeted the “Only” Secular nation’s in the #MiddleEast: #Iraq #Libya #Syria & Brought to them #Extremism. Now compare these to #USA chummy allies: #SaudiArabia #Kuwait #UAE.
How can you let them tell you “liberation” when in action it is supporting, spreading & sustaining: #Wahhabism #Sharia #Extremism #Terrorism (aka #alQaeda #ISIS)? How can anyone with half a gram of brain swallow and allow these atrocities in their name & tax-money?!

I missed it when #China’s Embassy in #Afghanistan tweeted this two months ago, but it’s very interesting to see the #CCP fretting about #PanTurkism & #PanIslamism. The former would be a bulwark against Chinese expansionism into #CentralAsia, while the latter would be a disaster…
… for all of humanity. #China’s lucky in the sense that #Turkey’s #Erdogan isn’t a true pan-Turkist, despite his attempts to style himself as some kind of neo-Ottomanist. His alignment with #Iran’s oppressive regime, which is funded by Chinese oil purchases…
… is completely antithetical to the ideaology of #PanTurkism, as #Tehran treats the Turkic #Azeris/#Azerbaijan’is living in #Iran terribly, taking their taxes & neglecting areas where they’re a majority. #Erdogan’s ideology isn’t pure or consistent. It’s merely self-serving.

#Samosa A dish with a savoury filling, such as spiced #potatoes, onions, peas, or lentils.
It may take different forms, including triangular, cone, or half-moon shapes, depending on the region.

The word #Samosa
(Hindi

can be traced to the #persian #sanbosag ( سنبوساگ)
The #pastry's name in other countries can also derive from this root, such as the crescent-shaped #Sanbusak or sanbusaj in the #Arab world. Or
"#Sambosa" in #Afghanistan
