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 Kunduz Hospital Atrocity

The U.S. bombing of a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, blipped on and off the mainstream media’s radar, catalogued as just one more unfortunate mistake in the last 14 years of war. But there is probable cause to treat the atrocity as a war crime, writes Marjorie Cohn for TeleSUR.

Collateral Damage/Stuff Happens

President George W. Bush (and his successor Barack Obama) have lamented “collateral damage” in Afghanistan and Iraq – and Jeb Bush shrugs off a domestic mass shooting as “stuff happens” – but the tragedies have a common denominator: glorification of war and cultural acceptance of violence, writes David Marks.

Taliban’s Capture of Kunduz Sends Afghanistan Back to 2001

The capture of  Kunduz is the Taliban movement’s greatest military success since 2001, and the fact that the Taliban held on to Afghanistan’s fifth largest city for several days is already being referred to as a turning point in the US and NATO’s 14-year war in Afghanistan. Against this background, President Obama’s decision regarding the final withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2016 is being perceived by many Afghans as a betrayal. America is sentencing the country to an escalation of the civil war...

Islamic State, Taliban Fanatics are Flourishing

On 25 September a UN report warned that the terror group Islamic State has a presence in 25 of Afghanistan's 34 provinces and two days later the BBC reported that «at least 300 Islamic State fighters have attacked checkpoints in eastern Afghanistan, in a rare co-ordinated assault on the security forces». It was claimed that sixty militants had been killed, but statements of that sort by Afghan or US-NATO officials in Kabul must be treated with caution...

Afghan War’s new direction after Omar

While he may actually have died two years ago, Mullah Omar did not actually ‘die’ until the news of his death was leaked to the world media.  That the news was deliberately leaked to the media is quite evident from the fact that his death was initially kept secret for more than two full years.

Afghanistan on Brink of New Wave of Escalating Tension

Tajik President Emomalii Rahmon, during his Aug. 2 2015 visit to the town of Khorugh, the capital of the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region, claimed that «extremists may try to infiltrate Tajikistan» from neighboring Afghanistan.  Dushanbe is taking steps to strengthen its national borders and to thoroughly train its military units and detachments, given the possible deterioration of the status quo in Afghanistan (IRA), where the confrontation between the Taliban and Kabul is being complicated by activity within the ranks of the Islamic State (IS) armed opposition group...

Afghanistan: Militants Posing Imminent Threat to Central Asia (II)

...The situation is an imminent threat to Russia with its many centuries-long history of living together with Central Asian nations. Unlike the US or the EU, Central Asia is close to Russian borders, and there is a plethora of common interests to unite Moscow with the states of the region. Unlike the West, Russia never imposed its vision of democracy and human rights protection. Common security concerns have produced the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), an organization with teeth serving as an instrument to safeguard peace and stability in Central Asia...

Afghanistan: Militants Posing Imminent Threat to Central Asia (I)

The civil war in Yemen, the following intervention by Saudi Arabia to aggravate the stand-off with Iran, the capture of Iraqi Ramadi and Syrian Palmira by Islamic State (IS) – all these events hit radar screen today to distract attention from Afghanistan where the situation creep is gradually turning into a burning security problem to threaten many nations...

Putin in Tehran: Strengthening of Russian-Iranian Alliance

Vladimir Putin has visited Iran for the first time in eight years. On Nov. 23 the Russian president gave a speech at the Gas Exporting Countries Forum summit (GECF) in Tehran. The idea to create the GECF originated with Ayatollah Khamenei, who in 2001 suggested that Tehran and Moscow establish an organization of gas cooperation like OPEC. The forum was legally founded in Moscow on Dec. 23, 2008, when the energy ministers of the member countries adopted the statute of the GECF – establishing it as an international association – and signed an intergovernmental agreement...
