    Yeah, that is not going to make things better.... they are not going to start treating traitors with respect, or free their women folk to do as they please.

    The amusing thing is that during WWII the civilised western force of Germany.... and I am talking general army, not the nazis... would shoot Soviet women in uniform. They did not capture any, or if they did they would be killed... sometimes sexually assaulted or raped and then murdered... no trial, no protection under international law that should have been afforded to them for fighting in a uniform... just shot... because they didn't think women should be soldiers so they treated them like armed civilians... partizans... and executed them on the spot.

    In that sense the Taliban are more civilised than 1940s Germans... think about that the next anniversary of the second world war when Germany is invited and Russia is not...

    Since when is a group of ethnic persons who do not wish to be governed by who is presently in power, "traitors"?

    It's comparable to Eastern Ukraine, where persons do not wish to be governed by Kiev government.

    Since when is a group of ethnic persons who do not wish to be governed by who is presently in power, "traitors"?

    In Vietnam they were called the Viet Cong or Charlie by the western forces that took every opportunity to murder them.

    When you challenge the authority of those in power, then you become the enemy... traitor... terrorist... they are not demanding voting rights, they are killing defacto government forces.

    What would Democrat Americans call fellow Americans who take up arms against the Democrats in power and demand recounts and openly fight and kill Democrats in various regions of the US of A?

    These rebels are challenging the right of the Taliban to control the country so at the very least they will call them the enemy.

    As they do damage to the Taliban the Taliban are going to get nastier and nastier... that is what happens in war.

    It's comparable to Eastern Ukraine, where persons do not wish to be governed by Kiev government.

    And what to American and Ukrainian forces call those persons? Pro Russian Terrorists?

    When those persons who don't accept current governments as having any authority over them and start ambushing and murdering Kiev forces then they get labelled Russian aggressors and terrorists and shelled and bombed for their efforts.

    It does not really matter if they stay in their regions or push to Kiev or Kabul.

    At least 40 Taliban fighters were reportedly killed by Resistance Forces in two separate attacks in Kariz Mir district of Kabul province and Bagram district of Parwan province.

    Same eye for an eye spiral that leads to perpetual war and death... there is no point whining that women and girls can get education or jobs when they are stuck in war zone... there is no point in having womens rights if they can't leave their homes for fear of being killed in the crossfire of three factions fighting a war.

    Taliban’s government includes designated terrorists, ex-Guantanamo detainees
    BY THOMAS JOSCELYN & BILL ROGGIO | September 8, 2021 | billroggio@gmail.com |


    Editor’s note: This analysis was updated on Sept. 22, 2021 to include the additions on Mullah Zakir and Ibrahim Sadr.

    The Taliban has announced the formation of an “interim government” to rule over Afghanistan. The Taliban’s regime will be known as the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. This is entirely unsurprising. The first emirate was toppled during the U.S.-led invasion in late 2001. The jihadis, members of both the Taliban and al Qaeda, waged jihad for the next two decades in order to resurrect it. The Taliban was clear about its political goal all along.

    Many of the newly appointed leaders in the Islamic Emirate are actually old Taliban leaders. More than a dozen of them were first sanctioned by the U.N. Security Council in early 2001. Some new faces have joined them.

    Brief profiles for 24 of the Taliban men who will govern under the emirate are offered below. This list does not include all of the figures appointed to lead. FDD’s Long War Journal will likely add to this list in the future. Many of the Taliban leaders discussed below have either current or historical ties to al Qaeda. Indeed, some of them worked closely with al Qaeda throughout their careers. Some them are U.S.-designated terrorists.

    Six of the newly-appointed Taliban leaders were once held at the detention facility in Guantánamo. Five of them were exchanged for Bowe Bergdahl in 2014 and are discussed at the end of this analysis.

    Which raises the questions... why did they let them go, but perhaps a better question would be how could they expect to hold on to them forever and because they can't, when they release them these people are going to have great credibility within the enemies of the US... whether they should have been held or were just picked up by accident and detained.

    Effectively the US is creating its own enemies... and is now upset when they form the governments of countries they are running away from.

    Losers don't get to dictate terms.

    'We won't eat tonight': hunger plagues Afghans in historic valley
    They have long survived hand to mouth, but since the Taliban conquered the Bamiyan valley, rural Afghans living in its mountainside caves have been left weak from hunger and fear.

    Known as one of the most beautiful regions in Afghanistan, the rugged, central valley is home to several hundred families living in caves that were carved into sandstone cliffs by Buddhist monks in the fifth century.

    The community is among the poorest in the country and the Taliban takeover in August has only exacerbated their hardship, with international aid cut off, food prices rising and unemployment spiking.

    They live a few kilometres from where the valley's famous giant, ancient Buddha statues once stood, before they were dynamited by the Islamist group when they were last in power two decades ago.

    Fatima says her cave partially collapsed during heavy rains a year and a half ago, leaving the 55-year-old and three family members crammed into a tiny cavern measuring just six square metres (65 square feet).

    "We won't eat tonight. And winter is almost here. We have nothing to keep warm," she says, her face partially covered by a black veil.

    "We live in misery and misfortune."
    Like most people living in the region, the families are Hazara, a mainly Shiite ethnic minority that has been marginalised and persecuted in Afghanistan for centuries.

    The victory of the Taliban, made up of Sunni hardliners who see the community as heretics, has caused panic.

    No group claimed responsibility for the attack. However, groups affiliated to the ISIL (ISIS) group have a long history of attacking Afghanistan’s Shia minority.

    ISIS has a presence in Pakistan as well. And radical Sunni groups in Pakistan have repeatedly killed Shias. Pakistan wants to force Shias to leave Afghanistan and flee to Iran.

    So Pakistan based groups could have played a role in today's attack.

    The Taliban as well as Shia in Afghanistan seem to be the targets for this IS-k group . So different tribes should unite and form an Afghan defence force . The solution is not to form Shia only force or NRF only force or Taliban only force . And start tribal sectarian war . Of course , everyone can still have and will probably have own units also . But a joint force , sharing Intel and operational against this group is possible .

    I'm not sure that they ever will, The Tajik Resistance, idk if the Taliban and they will ever work together. They tried to negotiate with the Taliban to be included in government, but as I understand the Taliban included no one, and their government is made up of hard-liners. & then the Tajik Resistance and the Taliban was fighting.

    Good news that girls have returned to some secondary schools in northern Afghanistan. They do however remain barred from classrooms in much of the country. When will they be allowed to go back to school?




    Inside Taliban-held Afghanistan: ‘There is no food, no help, nothing here’
    In Kabul, women who were once teachers and nurses now live in refugee camps while Islamist extremists tighten their grip on a fearful nation
    “I’ve been here since 7 a.m. – we come every day, but since the Taliban came, we have not received any money,” said Malalai Popozai, a 50-year-old teacher, whose family had been forced to sell off both its TV and its refrigerator earlier last month. Even still, her family’s breakfast that morning had been plain bread and unsweetened tea – there wasn’t money for sugar. “Right now, my three children are at home waiting for their mother to bring them some food.”

    Frustrated Ms. Popozai was still speaking when the Taliban official started tugging at my shirt. Then the militant punched The Globe’s translator in the ribs in an effort to end the interview. Ignoring him, other women surged forward to speak.

    All had stories similar to Ms. Popozai’s. Before the Taliban came, they had been teachers and nurses. They were the educated middle class of Afghan women that the United States, Canada and NATO spent two decades and billions of dollars creating. “The world promised that they would support Afghanistan, that they would support women,” said Sheba, a woman in her 20s wearing a blue headscarf, who brandished an identification card to prove she used to work for a German-funded non-governmental organization. “But now they just leave us alone to suffer.”

    The Globe spoke to dozens of Afghan citizens about how their lives have changed since the Taliban takeover on Aug. 15. They feel abandoned. Many are increasingly unable to feed themselves and their family. Women have seen hard-earned rights evaporate, and a generation that believed in a better future is now trying to flee their country. For those who can’t leave, desperation is growing, as are fears of more violence.

    Russian Foreign M spokesperson said, "Russia would take the most decisive action to help Tajikistan if the situation on the Tajik-Afghanistan border escalated."Yesterday TB said that tens of thousands of their forces had been sent to Takhar province near Tajikistan.



    Russia says it will protect Tajikistan in case of incursion from Afghanistan
    MOSCOW, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Russia is ready to protect its ally Tajikistan in the event of any incursions from neighbouring Afghanistan, a senior diplomat was quoted on Friday as saying, amid Russian media reports of a militant Tajik group preparing a cross-border attack.

    Tajiks are the second largest ethnic group in Afghanistan and make up a majority of the population in some northern areas close to the border with Tajikistan, a former Soviet republic.

    According to Russian media reports, the predominantly ethnic Pashtun Taliban have struck an alliance with one particular Tajik militant group which may be planning an incursion into Tajikistan.

    "All necessary assistance will be provided to Tajikistan if required, both within the (Moscow-led) Collective Security Treaty Organisation framework and bilaterally," Interfax news agency quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko as saying.

    "There are indeed reports that the Taliban cannot control the situation (in northern Afghanistan)... Still, we hope they will honour the promises they have made (about not attacking neighbours)," Rudenko added, without elaborating.

    Reuters has been unable to confirm the Russian media reports concerning the Tajik militant group.

    Tajik President Emomali Rakhmon has previously accused the Taliban of human rights violations during their siege of the Panjshir province, where Afghan opposition forces have held rallies.

    The Taliban, which seized power in August amid the chaotic departure of U.S.-led foreign forces from Afghanistan, has warned Dushanbe against meddling in their country's affairs.

    "....I'm not sure that they ever will, The Tajik Resistance, idk if the Taliban and they will ever work together. They tried to negotiate with the Taliban to be included in government, but as I understand the Taliban included no one, and their government is made up of hard-liners. & then the Tajik Resistance and the Taliban was fighting..."


    And :

    " ....According to Russian media reports, the predominantly ethnic Pashtun Taliban have struck an alliance with one particular Tajik militant group which may be planning an incursion into Tajikistan..... "


    So different groups may in practice work together . Where they have common interests . Their greatest common interest is peace .

    Qatari Special Representative for Afghanistan, "Doha believes that recognizing the Taliban government in Afghanistan is not a priority and that the focus should be on engaging with the new administration and addressing humanitarian issues."

    Northern Afghanistan is becoming a strategic position for extremist groups.
    I am hearing that, a number of Taliban commanders in northern Afghanistan who were disregarded by the Taliban leadership after they came to power, now they  are joining ISIS-K. 1/2

    Internal rivalry within the Taliban has also intensified in north. The Haqqani network is seeking to have dominant position in the north. The network has asked a number of Taliban key commanders in the north to announce their loyalty to the network rather the leadership.2/2

    Today's story of Afghanistan;
    Famine threatens entire country. Food prices are skyrocketing. The neighbours closed their doors & imports of goods are suspended. The anger of people towards the Taliban is increasing. The Prospect for over the next 2 months is difficult to predict.

    It assumes that the meeting between Taliban delegation and the United States in Qatar did not go well because the Taliban foreign minister openly criticized the US on freezing of Afghanistan's assets.

    Dozens of thousands of desperate Afghans waiting for days now in Iran-AFG border in Nimroz, to cross the border & flee the country because of Taliban.

    I know, these matters are no longer important to the world & they have already forgot us,but it has to be shared for the history
