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.

Woke Urban Women Alter the Vote

Woke Urban Women Alter the Vote

The Ladies of Liberty Sound Off – Woke Women have a huge effect on elections. Mostly young and mostly living in urban areas, these women tend to vote Democrat more often than not. The trend is for more women to stay single longer and focus on careers. They have been brainwashed by a woke society that they don’t need men or…

Doomsday Clock is Ticking For Biden and Science

America Emboldened with Greg Boulden – Not once were the scientific experiments mentioned in regard to the dangers presented to humanity. The security experts seem focused on a conflict that we can see, rather than a conflict that is ignored and censored by doctors. We have a pandemic and censorship of information on a global scale…

Immunity or Lawlessness

Immunity or Lawlessness

The Constitution Study with Host Paul Engel – If the individuals who are violating your rights never pay for their actions, why would they stop? Even worse, wouldn’t it encourage some to act badly, knowing they will not be held accountable? So is the court’s doctrine of “qualified immunity” just another name for lawlessness?

Yeadon and Rees on ‘The End Game’ for mRNA Gene Therapy Vaccines

Whistleblower Report with DrLee4America – So why doesn’t everyone have serious complications or die after the shots if they are so dangerous? Why such a discrepancy in the reactions people have to these experimental shots? “The mRNA shots do not conform to their label specifications. In practice, both “blank” and “lethal” vials and anything in between is produced.”

The Ethical and Religious Implications of Covid-19

America Out Loud PULSE with Dr. Marilyn Singleton – Covid-19 sent the world into an unjustified panic. Even in the early stages of the pandemic, the facts did not support the Chicken Little response. Indeed, the response — lockdowns, face masks, and proof of taking a shot that did not prevent transmission of Covid — should not be a template for future outbreaks…

Politifact and Twitter Now Bullies the Vaccine Injured

America Emboldened with Greg Boulden – This is gaslighting and bullying humans in their most vulnerable state. After clicking on the Politifact link, I was horrified to find out that Poynter Institute “fact-checkers”, Samantha Putterman and Paul Specht, had called to verify private health information to the families and medical institutions…
