Taliban Rising

The resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan, where they recently mounted a major military operation in Helmand province in the south and where throughout the rest of the country they are increasingly active, is emphatic evidence that NATO’s prolonged military mission there has been a dismal failure. This failure is not however a measure of the failure to impose a liberal democracy in the country but in the lives destroyed in the attempt.

Obama Haunted by Graveyard of Empires

US President Barack Obama has little to cheer about during his annual Christmas vacation – just as America’s longest-ever overseas war – in Afghanistan – flares up with no end in sight, and possibly for even more years to come...

Afghanistan: Mission Unaccomplished

The Afghan government has sent army reinforcements to Sangin to fight Taliban militants, who in the last two days have become close to taking control of the strategically important town. There are conflicting claims as to who is getting the upper hand. Helmand's governor, Mirza Khan Rahimi, insisted the authorities were still in control but his own deputy, Mohammad Jan Rasulyar, said Sangin had been overrun by the Taliban late on Dec. 20.

The Origin of Jihadism (I)

The origin of jihadism is prohibited from being reported truthfully – this truth is prohibited by all of the Establishment ‘press,’ including almost all ‘alternative news’ sites – in the West, because it challenges all of the «sensitive» buttons (all of the bigotries, to put the matter in plain terms); and, though this fact (the Establishment’s bigotries, and its hypocrisy to preserve and protect the bigotries even while condemning them) will prevent almost all of the news-media that I send this to from publishing it, nothing prevents me from writing it; so, here that is (in whatever media turn out to be gutsy enough to publish this Western cultural and political samizdat)...

Class, War And David Cameron. “Keep our Country Safe,… Military Action against ISIS”

Disaster in Afghanistan

In Afghanistan on 28 December last year there was a large military ceremony in Kabul. It marked replacement of the US-NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) combat operation by a mission called Resolute Support.

Why Gun Control Should Start at the Pentagon

On October 3 rd , the United States bombed a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. Despite the fact that the hospital provided GPS coordinates to the U.S., despite the nine-foot flag on the roof marking the building as a hospital, and despite repeated pleas by hospital staff to U.S. officials to stop the bombings, the U.S. continued to bomb the site for over an hour. Among the 22 dead following the attack were children, patients, and medical personnel from Doctors Without Borders. Thirty-seven others were also injured...

Kill Them All – US Strike on Afghan Hospital

The deadly US airstrike on an Afghan hospital has been downplayed by Washington as a «tragic mistake» committed in the «fog of war». But recently disclosed documents on the secret policy of drone assassinations by the Pentagon reveals a cold-blooded calculus to «kill all» within a designated strike zone, even resulting in 90 per cent «collateral damage» of «unintended targets»...

The Fantasy World of Central Bank Interest Rates Has Set the Stage for the Second Wave of the Global Financial Crisis

Starting from February, deposits made with the Bank of Japan began to accrue negative interest. The interest rate at the Central Bank of Japan now stands at minus 0.1%.
