The Taliban and the War on Terror

The withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan soil was completely motivated by a political calculus to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of 9/11. This was one red line that the Biden Administration was determined to keep no matter what. 9/11 was the reason that US troops were in Afghanistan in the first place. It was former President Bush that sent our troops to Afghanistan to fight the war on terror. It was so that terrorism could not find a foothold in the mountains of this war-torn country. Ironically, the reason we committed the blood and treasure was precisely the same reason why we left.

An eye-opening article, The Taliban’s Goal in Governing Afghanistan May Surprise Youpositions the Taliban with a different set of goals.

According to reports from Arabic newspapers, Afghanistan’s new spiritual leader Sheikh Hibatu Allah Akhwanzadeh, whom they are predicting to be “Amir al Mu’mineen” (commander of the faithful/ actually the Caliph) of Afghanistan, does not intend to spread terror to the neighboring countries or even outside but to concentrate to rule Afghanistan as a Fundamentalist Sharia-compliant, Islamic Emirate. If true, this is the opposite of Iran’s Shia Islamic state that intends to spread its influence, religion, and power all over the world.

Let’s take a strategic look at the Taliban and their future plans with IQ al-Rassooli. The lasting question that we will be asking for years, if not decades, is what does the future of the war on terror look like? What does Afghanistan look like 10 years from now? What does the Middle East look like 10 years from now? Do we expect more terror attacks here in the US over the next ten years? What steps should America take if we are to prevent attacks on US soil in the war on terror?

IQ al-Rassooli, Foreign Affairs Analyst, is an Iraqi exile, Arabic speaker, scholar and author, and a weekly writer at America Out Loud.

Changing Reality Through Messaging

Changing Reality Through Messaging

By skewing the messaging or exaggerating the messaging, we can change perceptions and, in effect, change reality. Hypocrisy and messaging often go hand in hand, President Biden’s declaration that he is a devout practicing Catholic is perverted by his words. Yet, because it serves a political aim, no one in the media, the church, or the…

Hubris, Greed and Lies in Afghanistan

Hubris, Greed and Lies in Afghanistan

The military wasn’t prepared to leave the country because the generals thought they could convince Biden to stay longer and nation-build which is “big money” for the military elite and defense contractors. Kent explained that Afghanistan’s withdrawal is similar to Iraq’s, where he served, with a few exceptions. There were no deaths or American’s deliberately left…

Conflict of Interest Driving Public Vaccination

Conflict of Interest Driving Public Vaccination

One can only speculate on the motives for resignation after such a disastrous act of regulatory malfeasance that was undoubtedly pressured by many vaccine stakeholders. Several major public health players have become deeply financially invested in the decision to promote mass vaccination on the population. The last two FDA commissioners have joined firms that directly profit from…

They Think Like Communists Because They Are Communists

They Think Like Communists Because They Are Communists

Until 1990, Communists and Muslims were not allowed to hold office. Then on November 18, 1990, President GHW Bush and Congress QUIETLY repealed the McCarran Warner Act of 1952 forbidding Muslims and Communists from holding office. Members of that traitor congress were: Dick Cheney, John McCain, Joe Biden, Al Gore, John Kerry, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi…

Modern Newspeak

Modern Newspeak

From the book 1984, Newspeak was coined for the ambiguous language used by politicians to manipulate the public. Today Newspeak is used not just by politicians, but by many in an attempt to win the argument by bluster rather than data. Only when the American people stop looking to others to determine what is and isn’t true…

Afghanistan to Abortion Rights – The American Divide

Afghanistan to Abortion Rights – The American Divide

There is a distinct difference between ‘nation building’ and ‘strategic alliances.’ Lt Col Tony Shaffer talks about the decision to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan – was it the right move in the first place? In the half-century since Roe, there hasn’t been a court majority as predisposed to ruling against abortion rights as this one. We’ll ask Danielle D’Souza Gill if Roe vs. Wade is on the ropes? Constitutional Expert Paul Engel, on how the Court reaches its decision and packing the court…

Technology or Technocracy?

Technology or Technocracy?

The flip side to the technological advances that make our lives better is the growing technocracy that’s been trying to gain control over our lives this past year and a half. Thomas L. Knapp sounds a hopeful note that, thanks to Covid-19, the technocracy has flowered and failed. Those who are pushing for vaccine mandates often overlook the…
