Opinion: U.S. Must Be Able to See Wood for the Trees in Critical Negotiations with Taliban Over Afghanistan’s Future

Published

on

With presidential elections in Afghanistan scheduled for September 28th, the United States and Afghanistan have reached a critical point in their bilateral relationship while the U.S. is trying to strike an agreement with the Taliban for peace, for the sake of the Afghan people and the country’s future.

As talks with the U.S. continue, the Taliban are not pulling their punches on the battlefield and the Afghan government is counter-attacking.

It is clear that the Taliban wants to maximize its leverage during the talks through terrorism and the Afghan government is fighting back.

Most recently, more than 30 people were killed and over 100 injured in a series of Taliban attacks in Kabul and Ghazni. It is the Afghan people who suffer most from the Taliban’s violence during this sensitive and critical situation.

These recent events have demonstrated that the Taliban can sow chaos, can inflict damage, and continue to instill fear into the Afghan population, but it cannot win this war militarily. Therefore, peace with the Afghan government – for however long it may last — is the Taliban’s sole resolution.

However, several months ago, a personal falling out between the U.S. and Afghanistan has still not been corrected and it should be fixed as soon as possible for the benefit of both nations.

Specifically, U.S. officials have made the decision to keep at arm’s length Afghanistan’s national security adviser, Hamdullah Mohib, a trusted senior aide of Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani, over a less-than diplomatic comment that was made about the American special envoy to talks with the Taliban.

Understandably, the perception of being left in the dark over negotiations about the future of its nation and people because the Taliban did not want the Ghani government at the negotiating table is an irksome matter.  More importantly to America, the decision to keep Mr. Mohib at a distance has not served the U.S. interest.

Mr. Mohib is a trusted security advisor to President Ghani, whom he relies on and it is important, albeit critical, that the former Afghan ambassador to the United States, continues playing a central role in the bilateral security talks between the U.S. and Afghanistan.  As Afghanistan’s top diplomat in the U.S. previously, Mr. Mohib established very good working relations with the U.S. government and the Washington establishment.  Those relations and his continued work as the national security advisor remain as important as ever in preserving close security cooperation between the two nations during this fluid period in Afghanistan.

Indeed, Ambassador Mohib is America’s best-suited interlocutor on the Afghan side.

It is important for the U.S. to get past the misunderstanding for America’s sake and Afghanistan’s.  Afghanistan is too important an ally not to and al-Qaeda is a testament to that. An open, working backchannel between the U.S. and Afghanistan during our Government’s talks with the Taliban in Doha is paramount in ensuring the Taliban do not gain the strength it possessed before the tragedy of 9/11. Neither the U.S. nor Afghanistan can afford that again.

Certainly, strong security cooperation between the two countries at the level of national security advisor is needed now more than ever for both nations.

It has been reported that the U.S. has agreed with the Taliban that American forces will  leave Afghanistan by November 2020, although a Taliban  spokesman, Suhail Shaheen, has claimed that during the Taliban’s talks with the U.S. America “has agreed to withdraw all forces from Afghanistan and to not intervene in future Afghan affairs.”

Whatever the case, based on press reports and historical context, we can expect that the U.S. will continue to maintain a counter-terrorism presence in Afghanistan after that date, notwithstanding Taliban statements.  It will be doubly important for the United States to have close security cooperation with the Afghan government after the U.S. withdrawal.

The Trump administration is shepherding a very sensitive process in its negotiations with the Taliban, an organization that harbored al-Qaeda. The Ghani administration and the people of Afghanistan must be reassured that the U.S. will do right by them and not create a security vacuum by withdrawing in a way that will leave both nations worse off.   “Conditions-based withdrawal” benchmarks must be met by the Taliban. This requires a solid line of communication by the U.S. with the Ghani administration so that the latter knows what will be expected of the Taliban after an American withdrawal and the Afghan government can best manage new realities on the ground.  That American channel of communication to our friends in Kabul should run through the Afghan national security advisor.

Ultimately, it will be up to the Afghans themselves, their government – including the Taliban for now – to decide upon the future of their country.  History has taught us that their future will also be ours.

The United States should have the foresight to see the wood for the trees.

United Nations Launches Website Promoting ‘New World Order’ Amidst Coronavirus Pandemic

They never let a good crisis go to waste.

Published

The United Nations has launched a website promoting a “New World Order,” essentially validating what conspiracy theorists have been saying for generations.

“The United Nations New World Order Project is a global, high-level initiative founded in 2008 to advance a new economic paradigm, a new political order, and more broadly, a new world order for humankind, which achieves the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development by 2030, and the happiness, well-being, and freedom of all life on Earth by 2050,” they write on the page.

Although the NWO project has supposedly been around in an official capacity since the time Barack Hussein Obama assumed the U.S. presidency, they have rolled out their website during the coronavirus pandemic. They have a quote from a prominent globalist on their page that tells exactly what their agenda is.

“A great revolution is waiting for us. The crisis doesn’t only make us free to imagine other models, another future, another world. It obliges us to do so,” Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy said in the quote.

The website promotes “Happytalism,” an economic theory devoid of substance that even a 5-year-old would have a difficult time stomaching. It is described as a “New Economic System, Socio-Political Philosophy, And Human Development Paradigm Which Places The Primacy Of Happiness, Well-being, and Freedom At The Center Of Human Development And All Life.”

They issued a press release pushing the project as the coronavirus pandemic took off. While fomenting mass panic worldwide, they simultaneously were calling for a global push for serenity through submitting to their New World Order.

“As my grandad said famously, ‘It always seems impossible until it’s done.’ Let us unite and work together to win this global fight, and to achieve the happiness, wellbeing, and freedom of all life on earth,” said Ndaba Mandela, UNAIDS Global Ambassador, Co-founder of the UN’s New World Order Project, and Chairman of the Mandela Institute for Humanity, in the press release.

“Every step of this year’s #TenStepsToGlobalHappiness challenge is dedicated to uniting humanity together, and summoning the collective resolve, and will necessary to fight and defeat this global pandemic, and so all of humanity and get back on our way to recovery, normalization, and advancing the happiness, wellbeing, and freedom of all life on earth, as called for by the United Nations in 2012,” said Luis Gallardo, a founder of Happytalism, the United Nations Gross Global Happiness Executive Education program at United Nations University for Peace based in Costa Rica.

Jayme Illien, another founder of Happyitalism and CEO of the UN’s New World Order project, made it clear that the NWO’s #TenStepsToGlobalHappiness campaign is ultimately about submitting to a one-world government.

“Step 10 is a call on all people to use this time to ask the tough introspective questions about our economic system and approaches to life, with the hopes of one day building the more holistic, integrated, and predictive approach to our global economic system, to make sure this global pandemic and preventable sudden global crises, which randomly shut down all life, created massive, self-inflicted demand shocks to the global economy, and threaten all humanity, never ever happen again,” Illien said.

The so-called conspiracy theorists have been proven correct yet again, and the coronavirus pandemic is serving as the springboard for the globalists to take the mask off regarding their totalitarian ambitions.
