This @NYTimes article by @AndrewKramerNYT is distorting the situation in the #LittlePamir in #Afghanistan.
No, “war has [not] found” the Kyrgyz in the Afghan Pamir. (1/5)
The article itself states that “[t]he #Taliban have not yet entered the area with force” and only mentions some Taliban “envoys”. Both statements are true, as a man in the Little Pamir to whom I spoke directly today confirmed. HOWEVER (…) (2/5)
(…) the man in the Little Pamir also said that these envoys only stayed briefly and have left again and that, as of today, everything is calm and fine in the Little Pamir. (3/5)

.@SIGARHQ released its latest quarterly report on #Afghanistan today. Some key points in this THREAD.

1/n

sigar.mil/pdf/quarterlyr…
@SIGARHQ Data from @USFOR_A shows that enemy-initiated attacks increased significantly since the signing of the US-#Taliban Agreement. During the past quarter (March – May 2021), USFOR-A reported 10,383 enemy-initiated attacks and 3,268 effective enemy-initiated attacks. 2/n
@SIGARHQ @USFOR_A Most ANA corps refuse to execute missions w/o spt from the ANA Special Operations Corps (ANASOC), according to NSOCC-A. When ANASOC forces do arrive, they're misused to perform tasks intended for conventional forces such as route clearance, checkpoint security, & QRF. 3/n

Thread on Iran-Taliban relationship:

1- Historically, Taliban and Iran were arch-enemies. Iran supported northern alliance with cash & weapons in the 1990s, and the Taliban retaliated by killing 10 Iranian diplomats & a journalist when they captured Mazar-e-Sharif in 1998.
2- The Taliban delegation visited Tehran at least four times in the past two years to normalize the relationship. It seems both sides are willing to forget the past and start a new chapter. The Q is what they get out of this relationship?
3- Iran wanted the US out of AF. The US is finally leaving and Iran is appreciative of Taliban for making it happen.

4- The Taliban are stronger than ever & they will likely become an important part of next govt. That is why everyone wants to befriend them now, including Iran.

Dit is geen #complottheorie 🧐

In weerwil van Erdogans beleid maken veel mensen in Turkije zich dezelfde grote zorgen over de Arabisering en Afghanisering van de Turkse samenleving, zoals de Europeanen voor Europa.
Of met andere woorden: #omvolking.

Welke zijn de actoren in het #chaosplan van de omvolking?
Er zijn 4 tumoren die samen 1 kanker vormen:
- Regressief-links
- Islamisme
- Georganiseerde misdaad
- Neoliberalisme.

Regressief-links deconstrueert de Westerse beschavingswaarden ten voordele van #cultuurrelativisme.
Daarmee opent het niet alleen de culturele poort voor #islamisering, maar ook de fysieke poort voor barbaren, zoals de #Taliban en #IS - onder het mom van asiel en migratie.

Moslim-privilege in Europa.

Je wordt lid van een terroristisch leger dat Lebensraum verovert in een arm land, de inheemse bevolking uitroeit en je krijgt 2 buitgemaakte huisslavinnen.

Slechts 4 jaar! En na 2/3 van je straf kun je al vervroegd vrijkomen.

In de Duitse pers geniet de licht veroordeelde #IS-terroriste Omaima A. het privilege dat haar familienaam en gezicht niet gepubliceerd worden.
Een privilege dat Omaima Abdi niet geniet in de Koerdische en Arabische pers.

Sommige Europese kranten (waaronder een paar Belgische) publiceerden wel haar foto's en familienaam in 2019.
Omaima Abdi heeft 2 slavinnen gebruikt toen ze in Raqqa woonde, waaronder een 13-jarig meisje, maar zij beschuldigde de media van een heksenjacht op haar.

1. As I predicted #Taliban are murdering the people who teach girls. This is clearly terrorism and the @StateDept and @WhiteHouse must move to re-list the Taliban as a FTO. If the measure is that they are not directly threatening an attack on the US, then why is the
2. #PKK listed? Taliban terrorizes civilians. The PKK is supported by the civilian population in Northern Kurdistan and along Iraqi border. Turkish occupation forces are the party conducting what could be defined under US law as terrorist operations in Kurdistan not the PKK.
3. The use of the listing process for political expedience IMO voids every charge under FTO listings because it is used as a mechanism to advance US policy goals and not a legitimate definition of an element of a criminal offense. It is used to impair first amendment rights of US

The #Afghan #Taliban organization has been able to take control of provinces, outposts and military bases with astonishing speed with the withdrawal of #US and #NATO forces from Afghan soil. What are the reasons for this successful conquest? Taliban explains: 1/12
@ICT_org

This lovely #ISIS gentleman from #Tajikistan just moved to #Afghanistan and invites others to join him.

Tajikistan security folks told me that they are not afraid of #Taliban but are afraid that Taliban pushes #ISIS to their border and ISIS would have no option but to cross it.
(2) at the same time #Tajikistan just repatriate a hundred of #ISIS members from #Kabul (I have access to them). They surrendered to government being overrun by #Taliban…. Yes it is That messed up :)
(3) according to official #Tajikistan information on April 2021 there are 1300 Tajikistan citizens fighting in #Afghanistan (in #Taliban and #ISIS).

There’s been a lot of discussion lately about the level of #Taliban control in #Afghanistan, so this is a brief THREAD on that topic. 1/n
The debates about district control go back a long time. I was first involved in these during my time @CENTCOM circa 2009. At that time, ISAF was producing district control maps, as was CENTCOM & @DefenseIntel (among others). None of them agreed on methods or results. 2/n
@CENTCOM @DefenseIntel Later, while with ISAF & at the command’s request, I wrote an internal memo laying out the challenges with the various methodologies involved with assessing "control" at the district level in #Afghanistan. 3/n
