Dear @SecDef #Austin, the Afghan Government "collapsed" because the US Administration cut a deal with the Taliban, not because of Taliban attacks which they countered for 19 years.

The Taliban made advances because they had a deal with the Adm that they will be the next power. Dear General #Milley, the best way not to "Americanize" any war is not to cut deals with the enemy, the Taliban in the case of Afghanistan.

As simple as that.

#CongressHearings: there was a third option between continous war and surrender to the #Taliban. Win that war, empower the people and reform the educational system. There was no option to go in, defeat the Taliban in 2001, and leaving with no change in society. Like going to n WWII Nazi Germany, and leave without establishing a democratic republic.

The fall of #Kabul is the fall of US foreign policy under the #Biden Administration. The Administration that claims it defends women, youth, minorities & liberals and fights fascism and fundamentalism is the one that threw women, youth, minorities & liberals in poor #Afghanistan to the #Jihadi fascists.

President #Ghani pressed by the Islamist lobby in Washington to resign, while the #Taliban advance on Kabul.

Will join @alarabiya to comment on #Afghanistan #Taliban forces invade the house of general Dustum in the north. Approach the suburbs of #Kabul.

Yes #Trump Adm envoys negotiated the #TalibanDeal in #Doha, fooled their own Adm, applied #Obama era pro Ikhwan agenda. But it's the #Biden Adm that has & IS implementing the surrender of #Afghanistan to the Jihadi #Taliban. The incumbent bear the responsibility of the disaster. Image US and Western officials are "warning" that "a civil war could start in Afghanistan!"

No kidding! And what is that whole #Taliban invasion if not a Jihadi civil war on the people of #Afghanistan? Politicians are just unable to admit that NATO threw Afghanistan to the #Jihadists. Image

A disaster thanks to the #IranDeal architects: Delaying changes in Iran, allowed the regime to sign a Soviet-style "25 year cooperation agreement" with China: strategic, military, trade etc. Tehran is now much better protected. This disaster is on the shoulders of Obama-Biden.. They knew about the #Iran-#China 25 years "Soviet-Style" Cooperation Agreement. Our intelligence, foreign policy teams, military, businesses, knew, yet the #Biden Adm was still racing towards the #IranDeal while #Beijing & #Tehran were producing their deal!

How can that be? 🤨

While the "impeachment trial" is hurdling and rattling on live TV, many foreign policy and national security decisions are being smuggled in the darkness of media night. Gradually, the #Biden Adm is projected to start putting pressure on the perceived "conservative" Governments in Latin America, such as #ElSalvador, #Brazil, #Colombia & others.

Excellent @TIME piece to read about the mighty, impeccable & integrated political machine - I've cited in #TheChoice back in September- that defeated the #Trump campaign during fall 2020.

#Republicans follow ideals, their opponents organize. However..

time.com/5936036/secret… The Time article is perhaps accurate on names, facts & very educative. But in the larger picture, it serves as a "mega decoy" to hide the wider more & deeper tale behind it. It's meat thrown to satisfy readers' hunger, filled with details, while the real dragon escape attention.

There are dozens of unanswered questions about the January 6 breach of #theCapitol that need to be answered, before the so called post Presidency Senate impeachment trial of a former president. None covered by the hundreds of videos shot during the events. Who will answer them? If the breach of #theCapitol on January 6 -that millions of Americans & people worldwide have seen from A to Z- was an #insurgency, therefore organized, what is the perpetrators' organization?
What is its name?
Who are its leaders?
When was it founded?
When was it launched?

If #SCOTUS finds out that the volume of disputed & illegal ballots have decided the elections in one or several states, and an organized effort was behind such acts, it should invalidate the vote in those states & order new elections, regardless of time. Better fair than illegal. As we see the dramatic numbers of complaints & lawsuits, we suggest that all votes in disputed state elections for Biden & Trump should be canceled & redone entirely: GA, PA, Michigan, WI, AZ, NV. If the current winners are confident in their voters, they should welcome it.

Let's call Florida ladies and gentlemen. Who is going to be the first media to do it? Red "Cuban" wave in south Florida hands victory to @realDonaldTrump, gives Salazar the seat of Shalala in Miami.

Two days from closing: #thechoice is now about freedom. If we don't reelect President @realDonaldTrump, regardless of all debates on all other matters, the alternative #Biden (Obama 3) Adm. will be severely influenced by radicals, foreign and domestic. An unrecognizable #America. Sunday night: focus should be on mass voting on Tuesday to get the votes needed within 24 h. Everything else, long term, medium term & issues to fix, after. It is a matter of national security urgency, an existential challenge beyond the person of the President.

#MuslimBrotherhood-linked #CAIR lobby group listed as a terror entity by the #UAE, is suing a professor in AZ (among other) for using my book #FutureJihad as 1 of the references to his lectures. This flagrant assault on the 1st Amd is a political version of medieval book burning. #CAIR smears me, using an #Ikhwan slander, describes me as "a known #Islamophobe who openly promotes anti-Muslim ideologies." I am a well known critic of #MuslimBrotherhood ideologies not of religion, in defense of a majority of Arabs and Muslims against Jihadism and Khomeinism.

In the @NYTimes piece against me they claim "that I "frequently appeared on #FoxNews to discuss the dangers of Islamic terrorism & Shariah law." Not accurate. I don't use the term "Islamic terrorism" but "Jihadism." A rebuttal @ #PittsburghPostGazette here
markets.post-gazette.com/postgazette/ne… I don't use the term "#Islamic" but rather the word "#Islamist." I carefully select my words based on academic research. I make sure it represents the meaning in English and #Arabic. The @NYTimes writers put words I haven't used (neither in my books or in the media) in my mouth.

#Qatar fully support the #Erdogan Gov attack on northern #Syria. Signaling an all out #MuslimBrotherhood war on the minorities in the Middle East. Now it is official. Washington cannot but stand with the beleaguered minority communities in Syria and the #Levant, because the American people support them, and it is an official policy of the #Trump Administration and the US Congress.
