NEW: @DoD_IG report on US-#Afghanistan raises questions about Washington's "over-the-horizon" #counterterrorism strategy

Need for US planes/drones to fly long distances, loss of human intelligence "has significantly reduced the DoD’s
capacity to track terrorist targets"
"As of the end of the quarter [March 31], the DoD had not conducted any strikes on terrorist targets in #Afghanistan since its withdrawal last year" per @DoD_IG acting IG Sean O'Donnell

re: #ISIS #alQaida
#ISIS-#Khorasan estimated to have 2,000 members operating in #Afghanistan, per @DoD_IG citing @DefenseIntel

That's about half of estimates shared by the @UN in February

#سی_آی_اے پاکستان کے ہر شعبے کے کرتا دھرتاؤں کی پتلونوں میں گھسی ہوئی ہے. امریکی حکومت میں سی آئ اے اور فوج کے پرانے افسران اعلی عہدوں ہر بٹھاۓ جاتے ہیں جبکہ #پاکستان میں سی آئی اے کے ایما پر فوج اور آئی ایس آئی کے افسران کو جان بوجھ کر متنازعہ بنایا جاتا ہے.
غدار سیاستدان، انتظامیہ اور اعلی عدلیہ اس کاوش میں اپنا پورا حصہ ڈالتے ہیں. اب تو #آئی _ایس _پی_آر بھی اس فتنے کو اِگنور کر کے اصل میں اس کام میں مددگار بن گیا ہے.

یہ کیا ہو رہا ہے؟ جان بوجھ کر کیا جا رہا ہے؟

#OnThisDay, in 1951, the famous Somnath Temple in #Gujarat was restored to its former glory. In the words of the then President of India, Dr Rajendra Prasad, it proved that “the power of reconstruction is always greater than the power of destruction". 1/9

The Somnath #Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva as ‘Lord of the Moon’, has been one of the most sacred shrines in #India for over 1,500 years. Due to its fame as a centre of wealth, it was attacked and plundered by Sultan Mahmud of Ghazni in 1026 CE. 2/9

Neden gizlice resi çekiyorlar, neden bunu yayınlıyorlar ve neden böyleler? #Pakistan'a birkaç defa gidip ülkenin genelini gezmiş birisi olarak bu floodda bunları açıklayacağım. Ülkenin geleneklerini ve bu konulardaki açlığın, sebeplerini. Konu aslında nüfus ve gelişmişliktir.
Arkadaşlar Pakistan, nüfusun okuryazar oranı %60'ı geçmeyen bir ülke. Bu oran erkeklerde %70 iken kadınlarda %40 küsurlardadır. Eğitim ise ülkede bir imkansızlık çünkü ağır gelenekler ve ülkede çok yaygın olan sufi ve tasavvufi inanışlar Pakistan'ın elini kolunu bağlıyor.
Bizde de kimi tarikatların (hepsi değil) kızları okula göndermediklerini bilirsiniz mesela ismailağa tarikatı (Halidi kolu) böyledir ve yine biliyorsunuz ki evlere TV sokmama kuralları vardır. İşte bu tarikatlardan Pakistan'da da bolca var. Peki eve Tv girmeyince ne olur?

Since this article on #import duties as implicit #export taxes went to 'print', I received some very good feedback, so let me add two points below to add clarity mechanisms at play here. 👇👇
1\ An 'innocent' 10% #import duty on bikes increases the relative profits of selling domestically versus #exporting by 40%! thus deterring new #exporters [assumptions are based on @PBSofficialpak numbers!]
Table below takes you through it. #Pakistan #Trade 👇👇
2\ From a #policy angle, how do you shift from an #ImportSubstitution mindset (which is the same as saying #Export substitution one) to an #Export led growth one? All of a sudden? No. Here are some ideas. #Pakistan

PS: thanks to @MOPasha84 for helping make the case clearer.

By all accounts, the NRF have launched a major offensive against the #Taliban across #Panjshir today -- taking multiple districts.

No doubt the #Taliban can respond in force, but it's yet another sign (beyond #ISKP) that #Afghanistan's new rulers are far from unchallenged.
NEW - x7 rockets fired into #Tajikistan from #Afghanistan.

In one month, #Pakistan, #Uzbekistan & #Tajikistan have all been hit by cross-border attacks, and #Iran affected by border clashes.

Tajik incident comes amid NRF (long associated with #Dushanbe) offensive in #Panjshir.
#ISKP have claimed today’s cross-border rocket attack on #Tajikistan.

This comes weeks after a similar volley was fired into #Uzbekistan & amid #TTP cross-border attacks into #Pakistan & clashes along the #Iran border.

#Taliban coming under mounting pressure.

Really! Read the truth here👇
Its not Congress who built IITs, AIIMS or IIMs

1- #IIT was the brain child of British Officials - back in 1946 when Sir Jogendra Singh of the Viceroy's Executive Council set up a committee whose task was to consider the creation of Higher
Technical Institutions for post-war industrial development in India. The 22-member committee, headed by Nalini Ranjan Sarkar, recommended the establishment of these institutions in various parts of India, along the lines of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (#MIT),
with affiliated secondary institutions.
2- #Pakistan made a better #nuclear weapon way before us irrespective to who paid for it,its their property,
3- Pakistan had way better roads during the Congress reign in India.. we did not have a single highway where a fighter plane

Ci-dessous un traduction directe en fil🧵des conclusions du chapitre 11 sur ce sujet!

Des changements à long terme dans les statistiques des températures extrêmes de courte & de longue durée, notamment l'intensité, la fréquence & la durée, ont été détectés dans les observations & attribués à l'influence humaine à l'échelle mondiale et continentale.
Il est extrêmement probable que l'influence humaine soit le principal facteur contribuant à l'augmentation observée de l'intensité et de la fréquence des extrêmes chauds et à la diminution observée de l'intensité & de la fréquence des extrêmes froids à l'échelle mondiale

*Treachery and Betrayal...Bajwa Doctrine. Part 4 - Time to go home, General!*

*-Haider Mehdi*

To see a dozen chaps waving green placards captioned "Pak Fauj Zindabad" saddened my heart.

Saddened me that Gen. Bajwa's poor attempt to redeem his tattered @umeed0604
reputation and legacy has come to this laughable spectacle.

Square placards cut in perfect "military precision"dimension.

Perfectly calligraphed slogans in white over a green background carried by burly men clad in white shalwar kameez"mufti".
@GreenBerets38 @Rashid_Aviator
What a mockery of the great institution! What a humiliation of the Army!

Is this what Gen. Bajwa's attempt at redemption has come down to?

Is this an example of Gen. Bajwa's sorry and pathetic attempt to win the hearts and minds of people of Pakistan by hiding behind the

The amount of anti-#Pakistan online content generated inside the country, mostly by supporters of a Pakistani political party, has for the first time surpassed similar content produced by troll farms linked to neighboring #India. /1
The quality and sophistication of the anti-#Pakistan content generated from within the country in recent weeks is more sophisticated and powerful than anything similar produced inside #India in recent years. /2
The sophisticated nature of the recent anti-#Pakistan campaign generated inside the country is in many ways at par with military-grade PSYOPS that states mount against each other, targeting key institutions of the country for internal collapse . /3

Actions and policies of ousted ex-PM #ImranKhan and his #PTIGovernment have led to arrests, denial of jobs, travel bans, and deportations of Pakistanis from #Turkey #UAE #France #SaudiArabia #China. All in just three years. The latest is Saudi crackdown on pro-Khan Pakistanis. /1
In April, ex-PM #ImranKhan's incitement was responsible for Pakistanis getting radicalized in two countries: #Turkey+#SaudiArabia. 🇹🇷 arrested 27 pro-Khan Pakistanis on Apr 12. 🇸🇦 has repeatedly arrested Khan sympathizers in 2019+2020+2021 & 2022. /2
In 2020, PM #ImranKhan's followers launched online campaign against #Arab-#Israel peace agreement #AbrahamAccords, radicalizing young Pakistanis in the #Gulf who protested on streets in #UAE & #SaudiArabia, leading to loss of jobs, expulsions, visa bans/3

The people who want an independent #JammuKashmir are not people who are hostile to #India and #Pakistan but people who are talking about ending the enmity between India and Pakistan. We want you to make Kashmir a bridge of friendship and both recognize the status of this region⏬
Today, after 75 years, the people of Pakistan are chanting slogans of independence. We are not slaves of anyone. We saw that last week the Prime Minister of Pakistan was chanting slogans of independence.⏬
So if Pakistanis want to be free they can call #Europeans and #Americans #AbsolutelyNot then what is our problem why they want to keep us slaves.

Ex-PM #ImranKhan dragged #Cuba into domestic #Pakistan politics by using sanctions on Cuban people as something Pakistanis should look up to. This cynical analogy was unfair to both great nations. One more damage from the previous govt added to PM @CMShehbaz's repair list.
Federal Minister @betterpakistan represents many Pakistanis who believe #Pakistan should not be like #Cuba/#NorthKorea; and is within his rights to respond to the statement by ex-PM #ImranKhan who advised Pakistanis at an international forum to learn to live under sanctions.
#Pakistan and #Cuba enjoy excellent ties. But first the ex-PM dragged Cuba into Pak politics, and when a Minister @betterpakistan responded to the ex-PM, the Ambassador of Cuba apparently indirectly came to ex-PM's defense. This looks like an attempt to meddle in 🇵🇰 politics.

#Pakistan's new de-facto finance minister @MiftahIsmail and his team had 3 meetings with IMF in D.C., Friday. They're meeting again Sat. Ismail said his govt had two priorities: get back on track with the IMF program and get out of FATF grey list. He seemed hopeful about 1/5
achieving both goals by June. As for IMF demands, Ismael said the fund wants fiscal and tax measures(the same ones as before) plus reversal of recent subsidies provided by @ImranKhanPTI.Ismael called those subsidies, in particular the recent subsidy on petrol and diesel, 2/5
"debilitating" for Pakistan's fragile economy. He called it a "subsidy from poor to rich."

He said his admin would have reversed the subsidy without IMF asking.

Saying that renewal of the program was very important for Pakistan, Ismael said his govt was ready to 3/5
