Tayyip Erdoğan przyjechał do USA, aby wystąpić przed ZO ONZ (i rozdać swoją nową książkę "Bardziej sprawiedliwy świat jest możliwy"). To dobry moment, żeby przyjrzeć się stosunkom #Turcja i #USA. Co w nich nowego? Czy Stany Zjednoczone nadal traktują Turcję jako "tak zwanego Image
partnera strategicznego", jak jeszcze niedawno mówił o Turcji sekretarz Blinken? Co zmiany w stosunkach turecko-amerykańskich mówią nam o nowej administracji USA? Co wynika z tego dla #NATO i #Polska?

Długi wstęp, czyli będzie długa nitka 👇
W czerwcu doszło do spotkania na szczycie - prezydent Biden rozmawiał z Erdoğanem. Mało było retoryki z czasów kampanii, gdy Biden nazywał Erdoğana autokratą, sekretarz Blinken też jakoś zamilkł ze swoją krytyką Turcji. Wszystko dlatego, że USA miały do Turcji nie byle jaki

@thezambologist It's #climateChange, not global warming (see floods & extreme temperatures both summer & winter with dumps of thousands tons/day #CO2 and other toxins by #UK .gov & #NATO over #Britain and #Europe)

#COP26 is a con trick @beisgovuk

@LanceForman random ➡️twitter.com/search?q=%40de…
@thezambologist @beisgovuk @LanceForman I've literally watched it happening

I'm a plane spotter, not a climate change activist

But this year of literally solid #CO2 dumping coming from .gov and #NATO has to be the biggest con-trick ever played on the public

@thezambologist @beisgovuk @LanceForman @LanceForman - these planes cost hundreds of millions of £ / € a day to run) typically go nowhere. They're in the air from the early hours until well after dark

Those planes could have helped to get the "assets" out of #Afghanistan in a timely manner (3 months into 3 weeks)

Ich frag mich ja schon, warum die #SPD, #Grünen und #CDU/#CSU immer so rumnölen über die Kritik der #Linke'n an der #NATO.
Das "Bündnis" beweist einmal mehr selbst, dass es am Ende angelangt ist, ausgelaugt und zerrüttet. /MS
Die "alte Weltordnung" ist faktisch tot. Die #USA sind isolationistisch geworden und fokussieren sich höchstens noch auf #China, #Großbritannien dreht nach dem #Brexit (und auch davor schon, siehe #FiveEyes) eh sein eigenes Ding, die #Türkei ist 1 Diktatur, die #EU zerstritten/MS
Die #Linke hat insoweit sachlich recht: die #NATO ist ein überholtes Modell, das in sich zutiefst zerstritten ist (alleine Türkei vs Griechenland), und spätestens seit den #Irak-Lügen der #USA keine Zukunft mehr hat. /MS

Speaking of major #NATO allies with federal elections this month, last Thursday's 🇨🇦Canadian🇨🇦 Leaders Debate featured a robust several minute long rebuttal by opposition party leaders of PM @JustinTrudeau's handling of Sino-Canadian Relations.

bbc.com/news/av/world-…
Sino-Canadian Relations seemed unimaginable to be a sticking point in Canadian politics just a few years ago, but have been hastened the status of:

☑️The Two Michaels
☑️Uyghur Genocide
☑️Huawei Telecoms Kit
☑️PRC-backed Political Interference
@CPC_HQ Leader/Leader of the Opposition @erinotoole's criticisms even garnered pushback from the CCP tabloid, the Global Times: Image

The #Left party in Germany put together a government programme for the first weeks of a hypothetical #SPD-led coalition with the Green and them. Some fun stuff in there. /thread
The #labour market programme is a stronger version of SPD and Green ideas, but nothing the 3 parties could not compromise on. Min wag: Left 13 Euros, the other two 12 Euros. That sort of thing. /2
Welfare same: higher basic welfare (#Hartz IV) rates, end to welfare sanctions and a generous basic income for kids (bit more generous than SPD and Green proposals). /3

Wie Jan #Böhmermann aufzeigt, liegt der Verdacht nahe, dass der #CDU-Bundestagsabgeordnete für #Baku (#Aserbaidschan), Olav #Gutting (@olavgutting) seinen #Wikipedia-Artikel manipuliert, damit seine Verbindungen zur Diktatur nicht weiter publik werden. /TN
Hier noch der Artikel des @BR24 dazu, der ziemlich dünn ist und einzig das Foto mit Diktator #Alijev aufführt. /TN
Olav #Gutting sprach u.a. auch von der langen demokratischen Historie, die das Land #Aserbaidschan hat. /TN

Bei Treffen der #EU-Verteidigungsminister habe ich klargemacht: Die nüchterne Wahrheit zu #Afghanistan ist: Wir Europäer haben gegen die Entscheidung der #USA zum Abzug kaum Widerstand geleistet, weil wir mangels eigener Fähigkeiten keinen leisten konnten. 1/9
Es stimmt: In #Afghanistan hat der Westen einen schweren Schlag erlitten - ob es wirklich eine dauerhafte Niederlage ist, entscheiden die Schlussfolgerungen, die wir jetzt in #Europa und den #USA ziehen. 2/9
Wenn die Schlussfolgerungen aus #Afghanistan eine Spaltung zwischen #EU und #NATO oder zwischen #Europa und #USA wären, oder ein Rückzug aus dem internationalen Engagement, dann hätte der Westen tatsächlich verloren. 3/9

👉 During today’s press conference Polish FM @RauZbigniew summed up 🇵🇱 successful evacuation from Kabul (1232 ppl)
& two decades of Poland’s engagement in #Afghanistan 👉 He said that it was a spectacular foreign policy success for a number of reasons [thread 1/9]
After #9/11, PL declared allied solidarity with the United States. A NATO member since 1999, Poland dispatched troops to Afghanistan, thus becoming a contributor, and not just a consumer of U.S. & #NATO security guarantees. 2/9

press.armywarcollege.edu/cgi/viewconten…
.@NATO was expected to „get out of area or out of business". Poland considered strengthening NATO to be in its vital national interest. All presidents, PMs&FMs since 1999 have been working tirelessly towards that goal. Afghan operation was central to it.

Il portavoce della NATO Jamie Shea ha detto che tutti i rapporti ricevuto dalla NATO indicavano che quanto stava accadendo in Kosovo era un master plan organizzato da Belgrado.
Ha asserito che si trattava di un modello di violenza secondo il quale i carri armati serbi circondano i villaggi, poi intervengono i paramilitari che radunano i civili sotto la minaccia del fucile, si separano gli uomini giovani dalle donne e dai bambini.
Le donne e i bambini sono poi cacciati dalle loro case e spinti verso il confine. Dopo che hanno lasciato il villaggio le case vengono saccheggiate e poi sistematicamente date alle fiamme.

1/9: #Afghanistan is a stark reminder that in foreign policy you need both to be clear about your goals and to execute them well. Over years the #US and its allies fell short on both counts.
2/9: The intervention was legitimate & justified (unlike Iraq). An act of self-defence to halt a clear international terror threat. The first purpose was not to end #Taliban rule, but to deal with a consequence of it. Of course the two rapidly merged.
3/9: Inevitably once we were there new goals were added. Suppressing poppy growing for opium, protecting & supporting #Afghanwomen, nation building, training armed forces. All laudable goals, but where to draw the line & how to define success?

Hindsight on 🇦🇫
-Trump wanted out
-Biden inherited & honored deal w/ #Taliban
-“Ending the war” slogan fit Biden’s domestic agenda
-Taliban acted shrewdly:
*didn’t target US in 🇦🇫
*cont’d & stalled diplomacy in Doha
*bought time to enhance its territorial control
1/5
-Trump & Biden “informed” #NATO Allies of their decisions. No pre-consultation or collective decision shaping.
-🇺🇸 decided, #NATO followed
-“conditions based” approach replaced by “out together”
-US & NATO narrative shifted to: “counter terrorism goal in🇦🇫 achieved”
2/5
-poor implementation triggered unexpected problems
-put burden primarily on Biden admin
-lessons also for #NATO & Allies
-overall intelligence, diplomatic & military failures
-US decision sealed in April 2021 but no one planned accordingly and all underestimated the Taliban

Seit 14.08. mache ich fast nichts anderes, als Menschen aus 🇦🇫 auf eine Evakuierungsliste zu bekommen. Ich habe mir Urlaub genommen, um mich bestmöglich um die Menschen kümmern zu können. Ich war für viele Menschen Berater, Freund & Psychologe zugleich. 1/13
Ich weiß nicht, ob ich mich jemals zu 100% von Trauma werde erholen können,dass wir als Deutschland & Europa viele nicht privilegierte Menschen, die #Afghanistan verlassen wollen, im Stich gelassen haben. Doch meine Sorgen sind nichts im Vergleich zu denen der Menschen in 🇦🇫 2/13
Trauriger Höhepunkt waren die gestrigen Explosionen am #Kabulairport, bei welchem unschuldige und verängstigte Menschen ihr Leben verloren haben, verletzt und für immer traumatisiert wurden. 3/13

La Casa Bianca ha chiesto al Primo Ministro israeliano Naftali #Bennet di non recarsi ancora all'incontro previsto con #Biden in quanto il Presidente è ancora impegnato in riunioni per seguire quanto successo a #Kabul.
Un altro drammatico video proveniente dall'ingresso dell'aeroporto di #Kabul colpito dall'attacco terrorista di oggi. Il terreno è letteralmente bagnato di sangue.
I #Talebani confermano che ci sono diverse vittime anche tra le loro guardie.

#Biden's decision to stick to the Aug 31 deadline is bold -- it raises 2 key risks:

1) We'll be leaving people behind, certainly 1,000s of #Afghans & quite likely, a few Americans in hard-to-reach spots.

2) Other G7/NATO states have been rebuffed again by #Biden -- more anger.
"#Biden's decision to pull out troops was backed by most Americans, 53%-38%. But almost two-thirds, 62%, disapproved of the way his administration has handled that withdrawal."

Overall approval rating now 41%.

New polling on #Afghanistan's impact:

BREAKING -- The US military has begun re-withdrawing from #Afghanistan, per US officials.

Very worrying sign for the 10,000s of those left behind - mostly #Americans, but some U.S. & European nationals too.

Die Türkei will weitere Raketenabwehrsysteme vom Typ #s400 aus Russland holen.
Russ. Vertreter erklärten, dass ein entsprechender Vertrag schon bald unterschrieben wird.
Die Verhandlungen seien in der Endphase.
Zuvor führte ein ähnlicher Deal zu massivem Streit in der #NATO
(1/4)
Zur Erinnerung.
Im Jahr 2017 vereinbarten Moskau und Ankara die Lieferung der #s400 , was zu massiven Verwerfungen in der #NATO führte.
Washington äußerte massive Sicherheitsbedenken, führte Sanktionen gegen die Türkei ein und schloss das Land aus dem #F35 -Programm aus.
(2/4)
Das #s400 gilt als eines der fortschrittlichsten Abwehrsysteme der Welt.
Apropos.
Mittlerweile gibt es schon den Nachfolger - das #s500.
Codename: #prometheus .
Das System soll sogar in der Lage sein, Satelliten aus der Umlaufbahn abzuschießen.

Today is the day the #US will decide if it is going to evacuate everyone, or stick to #Biden's self-imposed deadline in #Afghanistan.
This messaging from the State Department about the #Taliban having pledged to allow #Afghans who helped us leave the country even after the #US military departs is either criminally naïve or a horribly cynical way of consigning thousands of people to death
The Pentagon messaging matches up with that of the State Department: very much looks like the #US is preparing the ground to leave #Afghans it owes a duty to behind, but to pretend there's some kind of process or agreement to get them out

Kabil havaalanının işletme ve güvenliği sorumluluğunu 🇹🇷 çerçeve ülke olarak birkaç yıldır başarıyla sürdürüyor. Bu sürede başka hiçbir #NATO müttefiki gönüllü olmadı. Kabil havaalanı 🇦🇫’ın dünyaya açılan yegane kapısı. Afganlar ve uluslararası toplum için kritik önemde.

🇹🇷’nin bu görevi yeni dönemde de sürdürmeye hazır olduğu anlaşılıyor. Cbşk. Erdoğan’ın🇬🇧 Başbakanıyla görüşmesinin içeriği ve Sav Bak. @HulusiAkarTC’ın açıklamaları bunu gösteriyor. 🇦🇫‘da artık muhatap #Taliban. Dolayısıyla bu fikri benimsemesi gereken onlar.

There's lots of first-hand accounts of this from recent days -- intensifying over time. For now, the window's closing/closed for #Afghans, as the U.S. & others prioritize their citizens' evacuation.

This was all inevitable given the tight timeline, and it'll worsen too.
More than any other aspect of the #Afghanistan withdrawal, this is what should have been 100% avoidable.

And as @RepAdamSchiff has just stated, the IC *did* warn of a swift #Taliban victory -- this was *not* an intelligence failure, it was a political/decision-making one.
@RepAdamSchiff The #Taliban aren't stupid; they know the U.S. (& #NATO allies) are under pressure -- #Taliban fighters have significantly increased their intimidation of Afghans outside #HKIA - countless reports of beating, whipping & even gunfire.

And they're blocking known meeting points.
