Det sidste droneangreb ser udtil at have ramt civile istedet for IS. Ironisk nok er den afghanske familie nogen der arbejdede for amerikanerne.

U.S. Investigates Kabul Airstrike; 10 Afghan Civilians Died, Relatives Say: WSJ


Citer:
A missile that day killed 10 civilians—all relatives of a former interpreter who had been seeking a U.S. special immigrant visa because he feared retribution from the Taliban, family members and a neighbor said.

Emal Ahmady, who said he worked as a translator for an American company from 2011 to 2014, said in a telephone interview that five children in his extended family were killed, along with five adults. He wasn’t home at the time, he said.

A neighbor reached by telephone said that Mr. Ahmady’s brother had just pulled his car into the yard of the family home when children crowded around the vehicle to greet him. Some adults were also standing nearby, Mr. Ahmady said. Then there was a deafening explosion, the neighbor said.
Citer:
U.S. defense officials said Sunday that they had hit a vehicle containing would-be suicide bombers. In a statement, U.S. Central Command, which is responsible for military operations in Afghanistan, said there “were substantial and powerful subsequent explosions resulting from the destruction of the vehicle, indicating a large amount of explosive material inside that may have caused additional casualties,” adding: “It is unclear what may have happened.”

Mr. Ahmady said his neighbors told him there were no secondary explosions. A neighbor told the Journal the same thing.

De seneste dage har vi brugt på at mærke stemningen på landet. Vi kan ikke kun se på Afgh. fra byen. Faktisk er landet det, der definerer folket. Og der er det en anden fortælling. Om en modstandsbevægelse der siden 2001 har hadet besættelsesmagten. Og Kabul... betalt af US.

Hvordan får man afghanske kvinder til at vende sig mod kvinderettigheder...?

Gammel viden genopdaget.


The Other Afghan Women: The Newyorker


Citer:
In the countryside, the endless killing of civilians turned women against the occupiers who claimed to be helping them.

Elsker denne her. Så ved vi hvem det var Lars Løkke Rasmussen var nede og give penge til.

Citer:
n 1979, when Shakira was an infant, Communists seized power in Kabul and tried to launch a female-literacy program in Helmand—a province the size of West Virginia, with few girls’ schools. Tribal elders and landlords refused. In the villagers’ retelling, the traditional way of life in Sangin was smashed overnight, because outsiders insisted on bringing women’s rights to the valley.

“Our culture could not accept sending their girls outside to school,” Shakira recalled. “It was this way before my father’s time, before my grandfather’s time.” When the authorities began forcing girls to attend classes at gunpoint, a rebellion erupted, led by armed men calling themselves the mujahideen.

In their first operation, they kidnapped all the schoolteachers in the valley, many of whom supported girls’ education, and slit their throats. The next day, the government arrested tribal elders and landlords on the suspicion that they were bankrolling the mujahideen. These community leaders were never seen again.

Alle dem som kritiserede Taliban for dette. Hvor mange var klar over det værdifællesskab Taliban havde med Mujaheddinerne? Osse at der var religiøst politi før Taliban kom til magten.

Citer:
Not long afterward, the mujahideen toppled the Communists in Kabul, and they brought their countryside mores with them. In the capital, their leaders—who had received generous amounts of U.S. funding—issued a decree declaring that “women are not to leave their homes at all, unless absolutely necessary, in which case they are to cover themselves completely.” Women were likewise banned from “walking gracefully or with pride.” Religious police began roaming the city’s streets, arresting women and burning audio- and videocassettes on pyres.

I en æreskultur er dette ulideligt.

Citer:
Messaging by the U.S.-led coalition tended to portray the growing rebellion as a matter of extremists battling freedom, but nato documents I obtained conceded that Ishaqzais had “no good reason” to trust the coalition forces, having suffered “oppression at the hands of Dad Mohammad Khan,” or Amir Dado. In Pan Killay, elders encouraged their sons to take up arms to protect the village, and some reached out to former Taliban members. Shakira wished that her husband would do something—help guard the village, or move them to Pakistan—but he demurred. In a nearby village, when U.S. forces raided the home of a beloved tribal elder, killing him and leaving his son with paraplegia, women shouted at their menfolk, “You people have big turbans on your heads, but what have you done? You can’t even protect us. You call yourselves men?”

Og en lille en til Skyblue at tænke over. Hvem er monstrene i den afghanske landbefolknings øjne?

Citer:
On the strength of a seemingly endless supply of recruits, the Taliban had no difficulty outlasting the coalition. But, though the insurgency has finally brought peace to the Afghan countryside, it is a peace of desolation: many villages are in ruins. Reconstruction will be a challenge, but a bigger trial will be to exorcise memories of the past two decades. “My daughter wakes up screaming that the Americans are coming,” Pazaro said. “We have to keep talking to her softly, and tell her, ‘No, no, they won’t come back.’ ”

Søren Pind og stråmanden. Hvem siger at man ikke skulle prøve at eliminere AQ.

Søren Pind: At sige, Vesten intet skulle have gjort efter 9/11 er åndløst

Søren burde reflekterer lidt over forskellen på at udbrede sine værdier i Afghanistan og så blot at fange/dræbe al Queda medlemmer. Noget som kan gøres med politi, efterretningsvæsen og specialstyrker.

Det politiske mål skulle være det sidste og ikke inkluderende det første. De 20 år i Afghanistan kunne have været seks måneder, også kunne man overgive magten til afghanerne igen (inkluderende en regering med Taliban). Istedet valgte man at opbygge Talibans militærevner ved to årtiers krig. Der er idag ingen afghanske fraktion der kan matche de militære kompetencer Taliban har lært sig under vores lektioner.

Husk 70% af befolkningen lever på landet. Og det vestlige Kabul-regime var ikke deres regering.

Glem ikke at det eneste krav i RoE for at dronebombe en afghansk mand var at han gik rundt med en mobiltelefon.

Det var ikke kun IS så lærte af Vestens drone. Taliban er osse med på dronetoget. Det er dog ikke et altafgørende våben, men det er meget nyttigt - som spejder og præcisionsangrebsvåben.

Dømt til at gentage de samme fejl, da viden undertrykkes af ideologi.

It Looks Like We Forgot: American Conservative

Citer:
Yet, as if to create the anti-widget of my dreams, the Washington Post instead reviewed the sprawling literature to emerge from 9/11 over the past two decades—what they generously called “works of investigation, memoir, and narrative by journalists and former officials.” The books included on the list were written by people taking post-mortem credit for issuing warnings they themselves never acted on, agencies blaming other agencies as if all that happened was the FBI lost a pickup softball game to the CIA, and, of course, journalists who helped sell the whole WMD line profiting off their mini-embeds to write a new “classic” war book about What It’s Really Like Out There, Man.

WaPo left my Iraq book off the list, an accidental omission I’m sure. I joke, but I don’t. I wrote ten years ago, as it was happening, how nation building was going to fail in Iraq. It would have made a good bathroom read for anyone headed into the same situation in Afghanistan. So, while WaPo‘s list does a good job with the “celebrity” books of the era, it ignores the people who saw through the lies at nearly every step. I guess many of them did not write books, or at least not Washington Post kind of books.

Dette får én til at overveje hvad den danske hær gjorde i relation til Afghanistan og dansk presses rolle i forløbet.


Military leaders saw pandemic as unique opportunity to test propaganda techniques on Canadians, Forces report says: Ottawa Citizen

Citer:
The plan devised by the Canadian Joint Operations Command, also known as CJOC, relied on propaganda techniques similar to those employed during the Afghanistan war. The campaign called for “shaping” and “exploiting” information. CJOC claimed the information operations scheme was needed to head off civil disobedience by Canadians during the coronavirus pandemic and to bolster government messages about the pandemic.

A separate initiative, not linked to the CJOC plan, but overseen by Canadian Forces intelligence officers, culled information from public social media accounts in Ontario. Data was also compiled on peaceful Black Lives Matter gatherings and BLM leaders. Senior military officers claimed that information was needed to ensure the success of Operation Laser, the Canadian Forces mission to help out in long-term care homes hit by COVID-19 and to aid in the distribution of vaccines in some northern communities.
