    OPINION
    Why all eyes are on the Afghan-Tajikistan border
    The war of words between Dushanbe and the Taliban has deep historical roots
    By VIJAY PRASHAD
    OCTOBER 5, 2021

    Afghanistan and Tajikistan share a 1,400-kilometer border. Recently, a war of words erupted between Tajik President Emomali Rahmon and the Taliban government in Kabul. Rahmon censures the Taliban for the destabilization of Central Asia by the export of militant groups, while the Taliban leadership has accused Tajikistan’s government of interference.

    This summer, Rahmon mobilized 20,000 troops to the border, and held military exercises and discussions with Russia and other members of the Collective Security Treaty Organization. Meanwhile, the spokesman for the Afghan government, Zabihullah Mujahid, tweeted pictures of Afghan troops deployed to Takhar province on the border of the two countries.

    The escalation of harsh language continues. Prospects of war between these two countries should not be discounted, but given the role Russia plays in Tajikistan, it is unlikely.

    Speech balloon #Zakharova: Next week, we are expecting a representative delegation of the Taliban movement to visit Moscow to take part in the third Moscow format consultations on Afghanistan.

    The irony is that despite being former enemies the Taliban seem to have rather more respect and more interest in good relations with Russia than with the US or the west, which they realise are not compatible with their beliefs.

    Amusing that Russia could probably talk the Taliban into being more inclusive and also to help them fight ISIS which is in every ones interests, but I suspect the west will be supporting the resistance and therefore there is very little chance for dialog or cooperation with the Taliban... why communicate with groups openly supporting your opponents in combat?

    Time to close down Mosques . Muslims can pray any place . If they want Friday prayers , then open air prayer gatherings only . With large security margin and single file entrance to area and each person searched . Same with the Bazaar area . Concrete barrier against vehicle entrance to areas , shopping or pedestrian . Afghan police should organise . Or local people .

    Two months passed since Afghanistan fell to the Taliban. So far no country has recognized the Taliban and Afghanistan is isolated and left without a government. The economy is collapsing and a nation is in complete despair.

    This says China recognized the Taliban.


    Violence Undermines China’s Plans in Afghanistan, Risks Luring it Into Quagmire

    A recent attack in Afghanistan carried out by a Uighur Muslim
    has shaken China’s top national security decisionmakers, who now question the value of promises from the Taliban.

    China's top national security decisionmakers are stunned by a devastating suicide bombing attack in Afghanistan last week reportedly carried out by a Uighur Muslim, sources say, provoking Beijing to either disrupt its march toward greater investments in the Taliban government or to commit further to the quagmire that has stymied other superpowers for decades.
    The Islamic State group's affiliate in Afghanistan, known as ISIS-K, quickly claimed responsibility for the deadly attack at a Shiite Muslim mosque in Kunduz on Friday. But in an even more brazen and rare move, it also provided a crucial detail about the attacker, specifying that the bomber was of the ethnicity that largely originates from China's restive Xinjiang Province. Beijing's attempts to stamp out violent extremists among its Uighur population has emerged as perhaps its most sensitive problem at home and nearby, as shown through the lengths it's willing to go to quash the threat it perceives.

    The highly symbolic nature of the latest attack has raised new concerns in China that its partners on the ground in Kabul are not following through on promises they made, including to prevent organizations fighting for Uighur causes from finding safe haven in Afghanistan. And it has prompted worries in Beijing that elements of the new ruling government in fact may be trying to exploit its interests there to draw greater investment and involvement.

    "They seem to be in a real state of panic in terms of how to deal with Afghanistan," says a source briefed on the concerns by Chinese military officials and on their plans for the future, who like others spoke to U.S. News on the condition of anonymity.

    MILITARY DRILLS15 OCT, 11:29
    Russia, its allies to continue joint drill as long as situation in Afghanistan requires
    "Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Russia conducted quite successful exercises from the point of view of the deterrent effect on possible radical forces in the border areas," director of the Russian foreign ministry’s third CIS countries department Alexander Sternik noted

    MOSCOW, October 15. /TASS/. Russia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan will continue joint drills as long as the situation in Afghanistan requires, Alexander Sternik, director of the Russian foreign ministry’s third CIS countries department, said on Friday.

    "Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Russia conducted quite successful exercises from the point of view of the deterrent effect on possible radical forces in the border areas. Such joint drills will be continued as long as the alarming situation in the neighboring country requires," he said at a special session on the topic "Afghanistan in the system of regional relations" at the MGIMO-University.

    "It is quite obvious that it is important for Russia and Afghanistan’s neighbors to prevent turmoil, anarchy that might entail an economic collapse and a humanitarian crisis," he said.

    The special session on Afghanistan is being held as part of the 13th Convent of the Russian International Studies Association on the 30th anniversary of new Russia’s foreign policy.

    Russia and Iran and China should not abandon Afghanistan , because there are extremist groups and turmoil . Together they can help Afghans overcome these problems by security and political and economic aid . Pushing the little pebbles out of the silk Road . The Shia in Afghanistan are well organised , and to stop sectarian conflict then they should not enter the arena , under a religious flag . But a national flag . They can help protect communities from ethnic conflict . Closure of Mosque in the short term is necessary . New protected venue can be organised , safe from attacks . Friday gatherings could be held several times during the day , with smaller number of worshippers . Say at 9 am , then 12 am , 3 pm and 6 pm , in open venue .

    What is wrong with American journalists... are they really that stupid?

    The suggestion from this piece above is that China is suddenly shocked and horrified and might stop supporting the Taliban... it then goes on to say that ISIS K claimed they were responsible for the attack and that the person who carried it out was an Uighur... BUT ISIS and this Uighur attacked the Taliban... which means the Taliban are the good guys here because as far as China is concerned nutter bloody suicide bombers that are ethnically Uighur are terrorists in the eyes of the Chinese... it is the west complaining that the evil Chinese are victimising the poor innocent misunderstood Uighurs, not the Chinese.

    This story means the Chinese were bang on in their support for the Taliban government and that the new US surrogates fighting the Taliban are terrorists (ISIS-K and suicide Uighurs) and they need to up their support of the Taliban to help them fight these nutters supported by Saudi Arabia and the west.

    Why are American reporters so damn stupid... I remember people posting articles by American websites on MP.net regarding Al queda working together with Iraqi Kurdish forces... they were trying to demonise Saddam for fighting against Al Quada... because Al Quada fighting along side Kurds against Saddam meant Saddam had links to Al Quada.... no wonder some Americans can be led around like sheep... there is no critical thinking involved at all... just learning by wrote...

    It really is no different to the education the Afghans are now going to get... boys and girls educated to the level where they can count and add so they can spend money and pay tax and then not much more. Boys get a little longer education so they can read the Quran... and that is it... read but don't question...

They can help protect communities from ethnic conflict . Closure of Mosque in the short term is necessary . New protected venue can be organised , safe from attacks . Friday gatherings could be held several times during the day , with smaller number of worshippers . Say at 9 am , then 12 am , 3 pm and 6 pm , in open venue .
    None of these things that you have outlined are possible as long as Pakistan exists. They will keep Afghanistan on the boil, like forever.

    Well it could work out , here the Taliban seem to work in positive direction . They could work with others in establishing security . One way to do this , is to allow local tribal forces to police own areas , while handling international or national security problems like IS-K , together by a joint force .

    In clashes between Andarab Resistance Forces & Taliban in Pol-e-Hesar area of Andarab, Taliban have suffered heavy casualties. Taliban have been trying to send reinforcements to the area for hrs, but every time they have tried, they have faced guerrilla attacks by RF & they fled.

    #AFG The residents in Nangarhar are passing through a barbaric era. Hundreds of people are missing.Dozens brutally killed bodies,including beheaded corpses thrown in different parts of its capital since the Taliban took over. No Nangarhari elder can dare 2raise voice against it.

    VIDEO: The Taliban are torturing a person who is said to be a critic of the Taliban Islamic Emirate.

    I think this is the "Changed Taliban" that West used to say. And they are right. Taliban have changed. Earlier they were beheading their critics, now they torture.

    Wow they learn fast... pretty soon they will be sending their prisoners to Guantanimo and suddenly be respected and ethical with their torture like the US is.

    I notice there is a guy in Guantanimo that has been there for 17 years and one month... he was a taxi driver of some guy they wanted to capture but it turned out even the guy they captured wasn't the one they wanted... but they still have this taxi driver in Guantanimo Bay prison... having tortured him and kept him from his family and they admit he is not someone they wanted when they snatched him, but he is still in illegal prison...

    Sounds like the Taliban are total amateurs and have a lot to learn from their dark sith lords...

    Yes, if there are two different governments, and both governments do evil things, Although one may do more than the other, they both are still doing evil things.
