Today, the #Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs published an evaluation report of its contribution to the Resolute Support mission in #Afghanistan that *pulls no punches.*

I'll string together its primary findings in this THREAD. 1/n Image
(You can find the full report and an executive summary here:…) 2/N
Before the findings, a quick comment: the Dutch MFA produced this report b/c "Dutch contributions to missions under Article 100 of the Dutch Constitution are subject to an obligation to evaluate the deployment after it's been completed"

Wish the US had a similar requirement. 3/n

How to Research Western "Soft Power" Media Influence

A 🪡

Western governments, corporations, and NGOs devote a lot of resources to "research," "experts," and narrative control.

Of course, other governments do it too, but at this point others are pretty clearly labeled, and those governments being bad is drilled into our minds.

In some instances, someone may seem like a "#glowie" [fed] but it is impossible to prove.

However, ours is not a subtle age, and the Western soft power machine considers themselves the "good guys," so they commonly don't even obscure their activities; they boast of them

#Hindu Funerary Monuments:
Ordinary Hindus are cremated after their #death except for the saints. According to religious traditions, they are buried, and their shrines are called #Samadhi. The term Samadhi in #Hinduism also refers to an elevated state of mental awareness. 1/ Pic - Rajesh Avhad
Death by Samadhi usually involves inhumation rather than cremation on a pyre. However, samadhi memorials may or may not contain the remains of the deceased. This ritual occurs in 3 stages- taking Samadhi, the burial of the body, and site construction. 2/
The belief is that body of a saint or guru should be preserved as a symbol of sacred power. In this context, the #Hindu memorial is similar to the #Buddhist stupa, where relics of Buddhist teachers are buried and worshipped. 3/

Grand Chamber hearing in C-562/21 PPU at @EUCourtPress commences. The case concerns extradition under the #EAW from NL to Poland in light of the Polish muzzle law. -> Is due process still guaranteed? This case could put an end to the two-step test derived from the #LM judgement.
This was a lively hearing at the @EUCourtPress this morning with the #Dutch, #Irish & #Polish Government intervening in a case with vast significance for the continuance of the system of judicial cooperation within the European Union. (1/n)
The question was whether the two-step test for extradition established in the LM judgement can hold in light of the changes to the judiciary in Poland, and specifically amid the fact that many judges in Poland are appointed by the KRS which is not in accordance with EU law. (2/n)

What do an adder, an apron, and an orange have in common?

If it weren’t for the phenomenon of “rebracketing”, they would all three still be known as nadder, napron (cf. #French napperon), and norange (cf. #Spanish naranja).

@telegraaf @ADnl @volkskrant
Some may wonder why female #ISIS #Daesh members are given protection by their home governments, considering the literal GENOCIDE the Islamic State perpetrated against #Yezidi #Yazidi . Partly, it is because European states wrongly assess female ISIS members as not culpable.
Meanwhile, as these #ISIS #Daesh member is being brought home through the funding and protection of the Netherlands government, more than 2800 #Yezidi #Yazidi women and children remain unaccounted for in aftermath of ISIS's brutality and genocide

Personal health update: Got results back. All clear on the Xray and bloodtests. Nothing.

Got a referral for the stomach, gut and liver specialist to look at my gut next.

But i wanted to tell a story about #Healthcare in the Netherlands #WSS #Wallstreetsilver @WallStreetSLVR
First of all: Pain is no reason for expediency. I'm not even gonna list the empirical evidence for that i'll be here all day.

But, what i wanted to talk about is the conversations i *just* had with my GP and my father.

Ysee, the doctor asked me what i wanted to look at next.
And i said my gut, because if there's nothing wrong with my blood/stomach, then maybe that's the reason why *i can't eat anything*.

I'm on a diet of eating nearly only french fries cause it's the most i can handle.

She said she was worried about that, saying i should vary it up
