#Iran's regime & the Taliban in Afghanistan are both extremist forces with fundamentalist mentalities.

L—stoning in Iran, 1992 (with voice of AP reporter)

R—stoning in Afghanistan by Taliban members, 2015

Iran's regime hasn't changed in 42 years. Neither will the Taliban.
Periodic reminder for those who argue the Taliban has changed:

#Afghanistan
L—Taliban in #Afghanistan has begun parading "black faces" to punish criminals.

R—Iran's police also parade & humiliate youths for petty crimes, such as shoplifting, all to create a climate of fear among the public.

Birds of a feather flock together.

Indubbiamente la #democrazia non si esporta.
Ma la calca drammatica in aeroporto a #Kabul, le contestazioni per la 🇦🇫, la resistenza in #Panshir, la richiesta #SanctionPakistan testimoniano che il #TalibanTerror NON È L'AUTODETERMINAZIONE DI UN POPOLO.⤵️
L'#Afghanistan senza le forze occidentali torna a dividersi tra le varie etnie.

La cinquantennale guerra ingaggiata sul suo territorio tra URSS e USA ha prodotto i #Taliban, prima finanziati dagli USA in chiave antisovietica e poi dalla Russia in chiave antiamericana. Col placet interessato del #Pakistan in chiave antiindiana ⤵️

This is *false*.

We present the #Caliph of the #Ahmadiyya #Muslim Community from #JalsaUK 2021 on how the #Shariah of #Islam PROTECTS women's rights

Meistens sind es US-Soldaten, die hier Waffen anwenden, um die Menschenmassen aufzuhalten oder Startfelder zu räumen, damit Flugzeuge starten können.
Die Rede ist von rund 10 Toten.

To all my American friends. Taliban is merely a tool in the hands of the enemy. #Pakistan is the enemy creating chaos that we are seeing today. Thats their ticket to relevance. Chaos makes them relevant for you. #Afghanistan #AfghanistanBurning

2) They harbored the Taliban and waited for the day you left to sow chaos and become relevant once more. Their economy is in shambles and they are on grey list of terrorism task force. They had to have a bargaining chip. Chaos followed.
3) Listen to your own officers on ground. He lost 17 of his men to Taliban terrorists coming over from Pakistan

Nothing has really changed since then. With the USA leaving, the drug routes just become easier for nefarious actors using the guise of religion to control and keep the country in a permanent state of paralysis.

In 2005, I wrote a piece in a now defunct publication, arguing that those who believed that the invasion & occupation of #Iraq & #Afghanistan had been ‘an disaster’ were misunderstanding the thinking of those who took us to war

For them it was a success.

Die Armee zieht sich nach #Kabul zurück. Dort wird es schon in den nächsten Tagen zum Showdown kommen.
Dass die Zentralregierung überlebt, glaubt mittlerweile niemand mehr.

Lots of Tory MPs and Republicans handwringing about #AfghanistanBurning right now. Some Labour MPs joining in. Some of these lamentations are aimed at Biden. Others bewail a more general ‘betrayal of Afghan women’/wasted British and U.K. sacrifice/NATO failure etc
No acknowledgement of the strategic failures that were obvious - to those who wanted to look - long before the collapse of the Afghan state. Or the horrific damage inflicted on Afghanistan by so many countries in the savage geopolitical competition for Mackinder’s ‘heartland’
Let’s go back to March 17 1979. The Soviet Politburo meets to discuss the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan, where the USSR’s communist allies are savagely suppressing and Islamist insurrection in Herat. Foreign minister Andrei Gromyko explains the situation
