Hamid Mir orchestrated the Murder of Col Imam at the hands of TTP wing of Asian Tigers Khalid Khawaja and Col Iman were two patriotic officers who had great contribution in Jihad and were respected by the Mujahideen and Afghan Taliban. They were captured by the TTP wing of Asia tigers. Hamid Mir, then calls the TTP Khawarij and convince them to kill Khalid Khawaja, telling them lies and fake stories about Khalid Khawaja. The Khawarij were confused about killing both officers. After this call, both Khalid Khawaja and Col Iman were brutally executed. Son of Khalid Khawaja is on media record saying that Hamid Mir is the murderer of these officers. Now you can hear the original voice of Hamid Mir and his sinister plot on behalf of RAW/CIA to get these officers killed. Innalillahe inna ilehe rajeoon !!
Abdullah has consistently echoed the Kabul refrain that Afghanistan’s internal conflict is the consequence of Pakistan’s support of the Afghan Taliban. Given his roots and legacy, Abdullah will be closer to the Afghan National Army and the National Directorate of Intelligence — both composed largely of Northern Alliance elements. Making peace with Abdullah may prove more difficult than with the erratic Karzai. Dawn.com

Here it is:   QUERY: Any one knows Sheikh Imran Hosein's (HA) views on the Geneva pact? Apparently this is a U-turn by the West's attitude towards Iran and Iran's attitude towards US whom they have been calling the "The Great Satan" since the Islamic Revolution in 1979.  I am hearing views that one of the reason for this pact may be to provide NATO with an alternate supply route as there is an increased concern about NATO supplies from Pakistan. Infact the Imran Khan led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf has been blocking the NATO supply route since the last eight days. NATO has sufferred a lot before because of 8 month supply blockade earlier in 2011 and they may not want to enter into that situation again and Iran may come to the rescue.   In addition, historically Iran has not gone well with Afghan Taliban and this animosity might be used by NATO to its advantage. The Arab world is also concerned about the change of the Western attitude towards Iran. Some even calling that US has betrayed the "Long standing ...
ISI does not help us - Afghan Taliban commander in Zabul (Mullah Abdullah). video is from 2010
Presently, There is too much differences within the rank and file of afghan talibans and "Conflict Analysis" team is in process of assessing the right reasons for it... Their operational chief "Mullah Zakir" have set himself aside from the talibans and chief negotiator for afghan Talibans at Qatar office "Tayab Agha" have also defected and is in Kabul at the moment. Recent targeted killings of important afghan Talibans commanders is done by one another, while afghan government claims of hitting them.

Dear Ghairatmands, Good Jinnah Liberals, Tariq Ali Pinkos and Honda Civic Society of Pakistan, My deepest Condolences on the record turnout in the ongoing Afghan Elections. We really wanted to believe that Afghanistan is still our Backyard, our Strategic Death, ops, Depth. But it turns out that the Taliban are really not as popular there as Hazrat Imran Khan wants us to think. I hope this does not damage another carefully crafted myth that the Afghan Taliban, with their bases, ideological and logistical support, facilitation etc etc in Pakistan, are Different from the Pakistani Taliban and their 7 million different avatars. If this happens, then more condolences to HIK, Ansar Abbasi, Hamid Mir, Najam Sethi, Elitest Jinnah Institute Foreign Policy Elite Report, "Independant" media and all those who worked so hard to create this artificial distinction. I wonder why Afghanistan does not like Pakistan-Saudi backed "Afghan Taliban". Is it lashing unarmed women? Is it the that is one of the favourite sports o . ...
Unsure if Afghan Taliban blaming "foreign invaders" for shooting children in the hotel they just shot up will wash
Do Taliban threaten the region.? [Dr K.N. Pandita] Will Taliban terror proliferate eastward after the US drawdown in 2014? Strategists vigorously debate the proposition. Only the Indian and not the foreign print media have given it near hype importance. What actually stimulates the Indian press to cry wolf? It is not Talban intrepidity: it is the split personality and inconsistency of ordinary Kashmiris serving as stimulants, thanks to their euphoric response to Pakistan’s charade. Who are the ‘Taliban’ we are talking about? We have two of them; the Afghan Taliban based in Afghanistan, and the TTP meaning Tehreek-i-Taliban-e Pakistan based in Pakistan. Both are essentially motivated by religious conservatism. But there are other specificities. Taliban of Afghanistan sprang from the corpus of disbanded mujahideen soon after the Soviets exited and power passed into their hands in Kabul. When threat to national sovereignty receded, the country fell into a state of anarchy. Afghan commanders and their . ...
) The widespread search for the missing Malaysian jet MH370 continues, as confusion deepens over ‘missing 30 minutes’ at heart of the mystery engulfing the stricken jet. Meanwhile, The Independent has learnt that Malaysian authorities are seeking diplomatic permission to investigate a theory that the plane was flown to one of a number of Taliban strongholds on the border of Afghanistan and North West Pakistan. Last night sources in Kuala Lumpur assisting with the investigation told The Independent that full diplomatic permissions were being sought in order to rule out the theory that the plane could have flown to areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan that are not under government control. Large areas of the southern half of Afghanistan are ruled by the Afghan Taliban, while some areas of north-west Pakistan, adjacent to or near to the Afghan border, are controlled by the Pakistani Taliban. A spokesman for Malaysian Airlines said: “These are matters for the jurisdiction of those regions and Malaysia’s ...
Today I had an interesting incident. Goes to show how stupid, myopic, deaf, dumb and blind these TTP khawarij supporters are. Worth sharing with you all. I was in a hotel lobby when a suited man, educated looking walked up to me and asked “Zaid sb why are you against deobandis” ? Me: No I am NOT. I am against Congressi deobandis only. He: Deobandis have defeated two super powers. One Russian and One American. They have defended Pakistan. You speak against deobandis. Why ? (he started to raise his voices as well) Me: Calm down and lower your voice, do you know that I have also fought in Afghanistan against Soviets ?? He: No I don’t know that (he was puzzled now). Me: do you know that I am the biggest defender of Mullah Omer in Pakistan? He: but you never defend Afghan Taliban in media. You never say that in public. You are saying that in front of me alone. Me: I have defended Afghan Taliban a thousand time in media. You have never seen my programs surely. Me: what is your name ?? He: I won’t tell y ...

Afghanistan - Pakistan - Durand line -- an important border issue for the future Why the Durand Line Matters It is time for Kabul to accept the legality of the border. By Arwin Rahi February 21, 2014 Afghan officials have at times accused Pakistan of being less than honest in pushing the Afghan Taliban for talks with Kabul. Before making such statements, those same officials should also try to understand Pakistan’s deep concerns about Afghanistan’s stance on their common border. At present, Afghanistan does not officially recognize the international border with Pakistan. Instead, it has territorial claims on areas stretching from the Afghan-Pakistan border to the Indus River, all told comprising nearly 60 percent of Pakistani territory. This border dispute has its roots in the nineteenth century, when Pakistan was part of India and India was a British colony. The British imposed the 2640 km borderline on the Amir of Afghanistan in 1893 in a bid to strengthen the former’s control over the northern pa ...

The Obama administration has decided to revive talks with the Afghan Taliban in an effort to free the only known American soldier in captivity in exchange for the release of Taliban prisoners held at the U.S. detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, The Washington Post reported late Monday. So why there is an impresssion in pakistan that dialogue with TTP is a Taboo ?? Think Tank
Government Taliban Dialogue Prospects and consequences Both sides have nominated their team for dialogue to bring peace to Pakistan. Situation is very much confusing for everyone. Taliban is deemed to be a puppet of Pakistan Army for long time. And PML (N) has always been closed to religious parties and had soft corner for Taliban as well. What are those reasons pushing Nawaz Sharif for a dialogue or to launch a military operation against Taliban? I think all groups of Taliban are no more stooge of Pak army. And TTP is now a committed ideological group and is fighting for Islamic sharia in Pakistan and ultimately a Khalifat TTP has also supporters and sympathizers among political parties. It has also close relationship with Al Qaida and Afghan Taliban. And another fact is that Both Taliban and Al Qaida are on the rise and al-Qaida has now strong presence in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and some African countries. Afghan Taliban is also thinking to recapture at least the Pashtun belt of Afghanistan after 2014. I thi ...
Imran Khan NICKNAMED AS TALIBAN KHAN TOUGH OPTIONS FOR Pakistan Army Pakistan’s fledgling peace talks with the Tehreek-e-Taleban Pakistan (TTP) suffered a fresh blow on Friday as a negotiator for the militants said he would take no further part until the agenda included the imposition of Shariah law in Pakistan. The firebrand Maulana Abdul Aziz, the chief cleric at Islamabad’s radical Lal Masjid (Red Mosque), said Pakistan’s constitution should be replaced by the Holy Quran and the hadith. Earlier when TTP nominated Imran Khan as one of their negotiators, his detractors nicknamed him as Taliban Khan. Imran Khan declined the TTP offer. Jinnah’s democracy never actually sank down in Pakistan. If the talks fail, will Army crack down on TTP ? Will Afghanistan support military action against TTP in border areas while Pakistan continues to be soft on Afghan Taliban (Mullah Omar & co) ? These questions are important to Afghanistan and India. Pakistan Army will surely try to divert attention by creatin .. ...

A Military Dog Is Captured by the Taliban Posted: 07 Feb 2014 11:30 AM PST On Thursday, the Afghan Taliban said it had captured a U.S. military dog and posted a video of the dog online. In the video, the dog is wearing a "complex harness" and mills around members of the Taliban, clearly frightened. According to the Guardian, the dog appears to be Belgian Sheepdog. The paper talked to "an experienced dog handler" who has worked in Afghanistan, who said the dog "just wants to get back to his handler. "You see the ears? They are down, that tells you that the dog is not aggressive and just wants to feel safe. Right now the dog is terrified."

Taliban Talks: What is Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai Really Up To? By Pepe Escobar February 06, 2014 "Whatever one’s judgment of sartorially immaculate crypto-American puppet Afghan President Hamid Karzai, he’s not a fool. So now the word is out, via his spokesman Aimal Fazi, that Karzai envoys have been negotiating in Dubai with the Afghan Taliban. And Karzai, on top of it, is boldly encouraging Washington to join the party. Otherwise, he won’t sign a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) – the key plot line in the Hindu Kush’s favorite geopolitical soap opera for over a year now. Let’s try to break this mess down succinctly. On one side we have the Obama administration dying to exit Afghanistan, but with the Pentagon adamant on keeping boots on the ground and at least some well-located pearls in its vast Empire of Bases. On the other we have a US puppet who needs to think about his future after whatever form the American exit takes; otherwise the Taliban may grill him like a live kebab. And in th ...
To understand IK & Govt approach recall that Pakistan's Interior Minister said that there are some 66 different groups engaged in terrorism in Pakistan. Right wing parties like JUI, JI etc think that Afghan Taliban (Mulla Omer and Haqqani group) are fighting for freedom of Afghanistan and they attack only our military because we have become ally of US on WOT. And these are other groups mostly banned and fake Taliban who kill innocent civilians and engage in all sorts of terrorism and their aim is to destabilize Pakistan as a failed state. Nearly 40, 000 innocent civilians and over 5000 servicemen have been killed and thousands injured since 20002 It is open secret that they are sponsored by Hindu Zionist cabal as most analysts say. By reaching an agreement with genuine Taliban group, some politicians feel it 'd be easy for us to deal with other underground troops as the operations in Karachi are going on. Military operation in Tribal areas, it is said may be counter productive unless we take the tribal le ...
Sir: President Hamid Karzai is trying to develop contacts with the Afghan Taliban in order to pave the way for a political role for himself in the post-US/NATO withdrawal Afghanistan. Probably the entire world was expecting the same from Karzai, given his ability to change his colours according to circumstances. Hamid Karzai is showing to the Taliban that he was helpless when they needed him the most. He is trying to make them realise that he had not been comfortable with the US. His decision of not signing the Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) can be one of the ploys to show to the Taliban how much he hates the US policies. All this hatred has come after enjoying two full presidential stints. Great show indeed. The former US ambassador to the European Union and the initiator of the Bonn conference on Afghanistan, James F Dobbins, in his book, After the Taliban: Nation-Building in Afghanistan, writes that General Tommy Franks, who headed the US Central Command based at Tampa, Florida in 2001, received a ...
US military canine 'in Afghan Taliban custody' .
Four mindsets.Dr Farrukh Saleem A mindset is a “fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to and interpretations of situations.” In essence, a mindset is a “set of assumptions, methods or notations held by one or more people or groups of people.” Here are three facts. Fact 1: Over 2003-2014 fatalities in terrorist violence in Pakistan stand at 50,943. Fact 2: Over 2002-2014, there have been a total of 390 suicide attacks. Fact 3: Over 2001-2014, there have been a total of 4,754 bomb blasts. What does a Pakistani mind make out of the above facts? Within the Pakistani society, both civil and military, there exist four mindsets – conspiratorial, strategic, appeasement and clear. The conspiratorial mindset is convinced that whatever is happening in Pakistan is all American/Indian/Zionist doing. The strategic mindset is bent upon containing the TTP (considered anti-Pakistan) and protecting the Afghan Taliban (considered ‘strategic assets’). The appeasement min ...
Director of National Intelligence and United States Navy Admiral, Dennis C. Blair, told U.S. senators that the Pakistani state and army meanwhile draw clear distinctions among different militant groups.[130] While links exist between the Pakistani and Afghan Taliban, the two groups are distinct enough for the Pakistani military to be able to view them very differently.[131] American officials said that the S Wing of the Pakistani ISI provided direct support to three major groups carrying out attacks in Afghanistan: the Afghan Taliban based in Quetta, Pakistan, commanded by Mullah Muhammad Omar; the militant network run by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar; and a different group run by the guerrilla leader Jalaluddin Haqqani, all considered a strategic asset by Pakistan in contrast to the TTP run by Hakimullah Mehsud, which has engaged the Pakistani army in combat.[130]
CAN WE REALLY ALLOW 35000 TERRORISTS , OUR CLOSET PRO TTP LEADERSHIP AND A HANDFUL AMONGST OUR LOT WITH THE MINDSET TO DETERMINE OUR WAY OF LIFE. LIFE OF 190 MILLION PEOPLE ? TIME TO HAVE A SERIOUS THOUGHT. What does TTP want? Ali K Chishti Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) is an umbrella organization of 13 militant Islamist groups that united under the command of Baitullah Mehsud in December 2007. Since then, it has been responsible for thousands of terrorist attacks, including suicide bombings. In 2008, Baitullah Mehsud met Al Qaeda leader Dr Aymen al-Zawahiri in South Waziristan and shifted his loyalties from Mullah Omar, the emir of the Afghan Taliban, to Osama Bin Laden, then chief of Al Qaeda. Between 2003 and 2007, the TTP had killed 4,346 civilians and soldiers. After allying with Al Qaeda in 2008, it has killed 19,459 people so far. With its proxies spread across Pakistan, the group is now considered the number one enemy of Pakistan. The estimated strength of the TTP is between 30,000 and 35,000. I ...
Mullah Fazlullah A Yousufzai from Swat, he took charge as the head of the TTP after the death of Hakeemullah Mehsud last year. He controlled large parts of the Malakand division for nearly three years before escaping to Afghanistan in 2009 following a military operation. The mastermind of GoC Swat Maj Gen Sanaullah Khan Niazi’s killing, he maintains strong relations with the Afghan Taliban and is popular and well-respected within the TTP and similar ranks.

America has invited the Afghan Taliban for peace talks, a request that was made just one day after a Taliban martyrdom assault team killed 21 people, including IMF's representative to Afghanistan, three UN workers, two Americans, two Brits, two Canadians, and a Danish citizen at a restaurant in Kabul. Zabihullah Mujahid in a more polite manner told them to go fthemselves.
Afghan Taliban reject US call for peace talks - The Long War Journal "We strongly reject the American demand," Zabihullah Mujahid, an official Taliban spokesman "If America truly wants peace and stability for Afghanistan then it should immediately withdraw all its forces from our land and leave the Afghans to their own wills and aspirations," he continued. "If America is adamant on war and occupation then it should wait for more deadly attacks." "They [Al Qaeda] are among the first groups and banners that pledged allegiance to the Emir of the Believers [Mullah Omar, the leader of the Afghan Taliban], and they operate in Afghanistan under the flag of the Islamic Emirate," a spokesman to jihadist forums known as Abdullah al Wazir said in February 2012.

Afghan officials blame Pakistan orchestrated Kabul attack KABUL: Afghan officials Sunday suggested Pakistan orchestrated the attack on a Kabul restaurant that killed 21 people, including senior international representatives, and rattled the capital's close-knit expatriate community. National Security Adviser Rangin Dadfar Spanta rejected the Taliban's claims of responsibility for Friday's killings, saying the attack in Kabul's heavily guarded diplomatic district was beyond the capacity of homegrown Afghan insurgents. "I cannot believe that was Afghan Taliban. It was an attack organized and implemented by the regional spy or intelligence service," Mr. Spanta said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. "This is too sophisticated, which is a strong sign of the hand of some intelligence agencies." While Mr. Spanta didn't specifically accuse Pakistan by name, the language he used is the same as what Kabul officials usually employ to refer to Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence, a spy service that mai ...

The Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence (more commonly known as Inter-Services Intelligence or simply by its initials ISI), is the premier intelligence agency of Pakistan, operationally responsible for providing critical national security and intelligence assessment to the Government of Pakistan. The ISI is the largest of the three intelligence services of Pakistan, the others being the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Military Intelligence (MI). Previously in the 20th century, the ISI's work and activities have included the support of the Afghan mujahideen in then-communist Afghanistan against the Soviet Union in their war against the mujahideen (in conjunction with the Central Intelligence Agency) and later provided strategic and intelligence support to the Afghan Taliban against the Indo-Iranian backing the Northern Alliance in the civil war in Afghanistan in 1990s.[1] The ISI is the successor of the IB and MI formed after the Indo-Pakistani War of 1947 to co-ordinate and operate espionage activiti ...
PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Members of the Afghan Taliban confirmed to NBC News on Thursday that they are still holding the American soldier Bowe Bergdahl who disappeared from his base in Afghanistan in 2009, but claimed he sometimes stops eating and drinking.
Differences Between The Afghan Taliban and TTP These two groups are NOT the same. For those uneducated, Geo TV watching folks, the ISI did not create the TTP. Why would the ISI create the TTP and then behead soldiers of the Pakistan Army? Doesn't make sense, and proves how stupid some are. An Afghan Taliban spokesman told The New York Times: "We don’t like to be involved with them (TTP), as we have rejected all affiliation with Pakistani Taliban fighters...We have sympathy for them as Muslims, but beside that, there is nothing else between us."

Pakistan, Taliban and the Afghan Quagmire By: Bruce The Brothers Riedell With American and NATO combat troops scheduled to depart Afghanistan next year, the relationship between the Afghan Taliban and Pakistan has become more important than ever. It is a complex and complicated nexus. Without doubt, Pakistan and its intelligence service, the Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate of the army (ISI), have more influence over the Taliban than any other country or intelligence service. It provides critical safe haven and sanctuary to the groups’ leadership, advice on military and diplomatic issues, and assistance with fund raising. But its influence is not complete, and whether it could persuade the Taliban to settle for a political settlement in Afghanistan, is unclear at best. Pakistan’s Support for Survival and Revival of the Taliban Pakistan has been intimately associated with the Taliban since its birth in the mid-1990s. The ISI provided support to Mullah Omar when he founded the organisation in Kan ...
CIA gave birth to TTP at “Penny Lane” near Guantanamo Bay Prison–Report On November 25, The Associated Press released a news report which strengthens the beliefs held by many security analyts, that the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan or ‘TTP’ for short, a terrorist organization which repeatedly claims ties to the Afghan Taliban, is a fake group bred by the American intelligence community. According to the report, the CIA had a secret facility (until 2006) near the main Guantanamo Bay prison, dubbed “Penny Lane“, where captured jihadists and fighters from Afghanistan were turned into double agents. This fundamentally required that those who agreed in being American spies would guarantee full cooperation in “killing terrorists” (or, in other words, targeting elements who are eyesore for the US). Captives who signed up to be double agents were offered millions of dollars from the CIA’s (read American taxpayers’ money) secret account (Codename ‘Pledge’), along with safety for their famili ...
China and the great game [By - Haifa Peerzada] The conflict in Afghanistan is becoming more complex by the day, spreading beyond its borders into south Asia. There are four main parties: the US, Pakistan, Afghanistan itself and the Afghan Taliban. Others, previously remotely involved, are increasingly drawn in-the most prominent being China. China's growth rate of close to 10 per cent per annum makes it a global economic hub with which to reckon, second only to the US. This may not however be socially sustainable as it perpetuates inequality in income, heavily concentrated in China's southern coastal area. Moreover, the country's ethnic cohesion is uncertain: apart from minority tensions, the Han majority is itself fractured among ethno-linguistic communities which have experienced sustained segregation. Fear of becoming a target of non-state actors has put the authorities in Beijing on their guard. That fear was exacerbated by the recent violent attack in Tiananmen Square, allegedly by members of the Mus ...
So the American comprising of about 16 national intelligence agencies have produced a report, according to the findings of that report, (a banned extremist group) will obtain strength in Pakistan, and it will get a strong hold over the country, and its activities will increase by year 2017. Alongside the intelligence report's revelation about it has discovered that Afghan Taliban will regain influence in Afghanistan, which will be stronger than their current position, thus what and forces have conquered in Afghanistan during Afghan war will go back in the hands of NOTE: There are some suspicions attached with the said report. In my opinion, Pakistan has suffered greater damage from Afghan-insurgency since the inception of in Afghanistan compared to Lashkar e Taiba, as various foreign players are involved in the war going on in the rogue state specifically where it enjoys acceptance and cooperation from Afghan government and US itself, however it has become a source of damage to Pakistan causing a perpetua ...
Many of you ask why is it okay to support Afghan Taliban and okay for Pakistan to "interfere" in Afghanistan? Good question. To answer this question you should go back to 16 October 1951, when Prime Minister Liaquat Ali Khan was shot twice in the chest during a public meeting of the Muslim League at Company Bagh in Rawalpindi. The assassin was later identified as an Afghan intelligence operative named Saad Akbar Babrak who was rightfully killed. So you see, the question shouldn't be why is it okay for Pakistan to interfere in Afghanistan. The real question should be why hasn't Afghanistan grown up to be a mature country in the civilised world? They were quick to accept the ISI's help in creating, training and equipping the Mujaheddin to fight against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. Legally wouldn't that be interfering in Afghanistan as well? The Afghan Taliban were mainly created out of the remnants of the Mujaheddin. When the west abandon Pakistan and Iran with over 3 million refugees each, Afghani ...

Plot to attack Presidential Palace and Defense Ministry foiled Dec 10, 2013 - 23:03 Source: Pajhwok KABUL (PAN): Twenty-two insurgents, including a Pakistani suicide bomber and senior Afghan Taliban figures, have been arrested in a plot to attack the Presidential Palace, the Ministry of Defence and the Kabul Airport, the spy service said on Tuesday. The National Directorate of Security (NDS) said the arrests were made over the past three weeks in various parts of the central capital. NDS spokesman Farid Shamal told a press conference the detainees included a Taliban-designated district chief for the Khak-i-Jabbar district, Abdul Aleem. Aleem had been tasked with carrying out terrorist attacks by the Waziristan-based Haqqani Network and “Peshawar Taliban Council” during the three-day Loya Jirga session, he said. Attended by 2,500 delegates, the grand assembly last month asked the government to conclude the security deal with the US this year. Shamal said a large quantity of weapons, including 11 mortar ...
Some Afghan and American officials have said that there were signs of positive outcomes in peace negotiations with the Taliban after AHPC chairman Salahuddin Rabbani met with Baradar in Kabul.Pakistan released Baradar in September to accelerate the peace negotiation process. But the Afghan Taliban have said that Baradar still remained in Pakistani custody.Baradar was one of the four men who founded the Taliban in Afghanistan in 1994, and before being captured in Karachi back in 2010, was the right hand man of the reclusive Taliban headman, Mullah Omar.
Need to step up efforts to restore peace Nek Muhammad from Ahmadzai Wazir tribe, Abdullah Mehsud and Baitullah Mehsud, all from South Waziristan (SW) were founding leaders of Pakistani Taliban and had drawn inspiration from Afghan Taliban. They rebelled against the State after regular troops entered SW in 2002 to flush out foreign terrorists and get hold of those who had harbored them. Prior to their movement, Maulana Sufi Muhammad led TNSM in Malakand Division was the first Islamic movement to raise the banner of Shariah in early 1990s. Afghans were also involved in the movement and it became so menacing that an operation led by IGFC Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) had to be launched in 1994. Movement died down after the government agreed to impose Shariah laws in Malakand. Later on Sufi along with his 15000 followers joined Afghan Taliban in their battle against US led invaders in October 2001.

Karzai Blackmailing USA. The president of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai is constantly blackmailing USA by not signing the Bilateral security agreement and saying that he would do so once the general elections are held in Afghanistan in April. Although the Loyi Girga (the grand assembly of Afghan people) has approved the agreement and asked the president to sign it. Americans want that Karzai signs it at the end of this year so that they can decide how much troops they have to maintain in Afghanistan plus the bases. By not signing the Bilateral agreement Mr Karzai is not only distracting the issue but at the same time frustrating the Americans by putting some conditions before he would sing the agreement. The principal demand by Karzai is bring the Afghan Taliban on negotiating table as well exert pressure on Pakistan to use her influence on Taliban to come and discuss ways and means to establish peace in Afghanistan. There are other demands from Karzai side which would delay the signing of the agreement. ...

LA IKRAHU FIDDIN "There is no compulsion (jabar) in Islam" In context of "Afghan Taliban" rule . its not Islamic in my opinion...to force someone to follow certain orders and even if they have violated the "rules" this is not the way to disgrace humans .when I was in UET back in 94-99 in lahore, i had some class mates from Chaman, Ayub Khan Achakzai...he used to tell me very horrible stories...true or not but I was disgusted...one story told that a man taking his pregnant wife to hospital while on the way at road block so called Afghan "Taliban" stopped them and ordered to pray namaz...he begged for a leave in case of serious emergency but "Talibans" were unmoved... Allah knows better but I dont support this version of Islam...but still there are people supporting and fighting and cursing others in favor of Afghan Talibans. we would be successful only by following Shariah and sunnah and Quran, for sure.but Islam and Shariah as a system, not just punishments.Islam as a full package...what we are doing as a ...

Pakistan PM Sharif vows help for Afghan Taliban talks BNN News Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has promised to help facilitate peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban. Mr Sharif was speaking after meeting Afghan President Hamid Karzai in Kabul. He said that meetings would be encouraged between Mr Karzai's representatives and Mullah Baradar, a former Taliban commander released from detention in Pakistan last year. Afghan officials believe Mullah Baradar is key to the success of any talks. Mr Karzai has said he believes Pakistan has a high degree of influence over the Afghan Taliban. It is believed the Taliban launch attacks from bases inside Pakistan and elements of Pakistan's intelligence service have also been accused of backing the Afghan Taliban. However, Islamabad strongly denies there is any official collusion. Recently relations between the two countries seem to have improved and Saturday's meeting between the two men appears to have been brief but cordial, the BBC's Karen Al ...
Nawaz Sharif to visit Kabul on Saturday ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will visit Kabul on Saturday after he accepted an invitation by Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai. Foreign office spokesperson Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry on Thursday said the agenda of the visit would cover a broad spectrum of bilateral relations, peace and reconciliation process and regional cooperation. Pakistan attaches high importance to its relations with Afghanistan, he added. Pakistan is hoping to play a facilitating role in the peace process in Afghanistan which has elections next year, along with a drawdown of coalition forces. It has released several Afghan Taliban prisoners so that they can mediate in the talks with the militants. On Tuesday too it released three more Taliban prisoners as part of its attempt to facilitate the peace process in Afghanistan. Though there was no statement on this, a government official confirmed the release of the three persons - Mullah Abdul Ahad Jahangirwal, who is reported to be an adviser ...
Afghan Taliban attack NATO base in US army uniform, 6 jets destroyed Afghan Taliban attacked Camp Bastion in southern Helmand province of Afghanistan and destroyed six coalition forces jets using US army uniforms. NATO-led International Security Assistance Force following a statement announced,“15 Taliaban Mujahideens executed a well-coordinated attack against the airfield on Camp Bastion. The Taliban mujahideens, organized into three teams, penetrated at one point of the perimeter fence.” The source further added,“The Taliban Mujahideens appeared to be well equipped, trained and rehearsed.” “Dressed in U.S. Army uniforms and armed with automatic rifles, rocket propelled grenade launchers and suicide vests, they attacked coalition fixed and rotary wing aircraft parked on the flight line, aircraft hangars and other buildings”
A deluge of heads of state as well as intelligence agency professionals have gone on record over the past nine years to state their belief that Bin Laden was likely dead, after it became clear that the Al-Qaeda leader's health was in severe decline as a result of kidney disease at the end of 2001. These include; - Former CIA officer and hugely respected intelligence & foreign policy expert Robert Baer, who in 2008 when asked about Bin Laden by a radio host responded, "Of course he is dead." - On December 26, 2001, Fox News, citing a Pakistan Observer story, reported that the Afghan Taliban had pronounced Bin Laden dead and buried him in an unmarked grave. - On January 18, 2002, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf announced: "I think now, frankly, he is dead." - On July 17, 2002, the then-head of counterterrorism at the FBI, Dale Watson, told a conference of law enforcement officials that "I personally think he [Bin Laden] is probably not with us anymore." - In October 2002, Afghan President Hamid Karzai ...
Sitting with fingers crossed [Dr K.N. Pandita] A question of increasing disquietude, not only for the administration --- civilian and military --- but also for the entire nation is what will be the security scenario of the region lying beyond our north-western border once the US-led NATO troops begin to withdraw from Afghanistan in 2014. NATO withdrawal will begin in a situation in which remnants of Afghan Taliban-Al Qaeda combine are still potently capable of reassembling. Anti-American Pakistani Taliban (TTP), besides other known radical Islamist groups in Pakistan, is making common cause with them. Afghan Taliban militants are forging stronger bonds with TTP. Sectarian outfits in Pakistan essay for better bargaining chips to negotiate in Afghanistan. The contention or the lurking expectation that US-NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan would not be in vacuum is very frail keeping in mind the new reality obtaining from two decades-old religion based militancy in the region. The new perception or reality ...

The Police 10,600 disabled died in 10 months in 2010-11 because of Atos this was by admission of the DWP. Yet there was no Police investigation, however the EU are now launching an investigation. If there are mistakes in hospitals there will be an investigation, sometimes by Police, in fact the Government have now stipulated Nursing staff can get 5 years in prison for cases of neglect. A soldier is facing life in prison for killing a wounded Afghan Taliban, fair enough you say and yet 827 people have died in Police custody in 10 years and no one has been prosecuted. Seems if you pile on them and kill them it's fine but shooting, unless you're in the underground with a backpak, isn't. Slavery and starvation isn't that a crime ? The papers have been full of how they rescued 3 women from domestic slavery and presumably the couple will serve a long prison sentence. This obviously doesn't apply to other forms of slavery and abuse, the type Government force through in statutes. Where are the Police and the law ...
THE Pakistani Taliban Supporters of the Afghan Taliban who sought refuge in Pakistan's tribal areas morphed into a distinct entity following the Pakistani army's initial incursion into the semiautonomous region in 2002. In December 2007, about thirteen disparate militant groups coalesced under the umbrella of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), also known as the Pakistani Taliban, led by Baitullah Mehsud of South Waziristan. Pakistani authorities accused him of orchestrating the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto in December 2007. Short-lived ceasefires signed with Islamabad in 2008 and 2009 provided opportunities for the Pakistani Taliban to regroup and make territorial gains, analysts say. After a U.S. drone strike killed Baitullah in August 2009, his cousin and deputy Hakimullah Mehsud assumed leadership of the TTP. Hakimullah was reportedly prepared to take part in imminent peace talks with Islamabad when he was killed in a U.S. drone strike along with a top deputy in November 2013. Bu ...
The Pak-Afghan tangle The Nation By Samson Simon Sharaf November 18, 2013 The tangle is complicated and confusing. Who backs who is a riddle difficult to answer? As the deadline for a tactical but not strategic withdrawal of NATO-ISAF begins next year, the local trajectories of violence as predicted in these columns become clearer. The loyalties of actors involved in these crisscross; difficult to evaluate; who supports whom; and who attacks who? Afghan Mujahedeen were created by Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto against Sardar Daud. Arab Fighters later Al Qaeda was provided by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Libya and USA. Afghan Taliban backed by Pakistan did not support Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda mauled by Afghan Taliban left Afghanistan for Sudan then moved back on invitation of President Rabbani on C130 aircrafts. In 1996, USA rejected the Pak-Afghan roadmap for stability. Iran, Turkey and Russia supported Dostam (once a Taliban), in massacre of Taliban at Mazar Sharif. Sectarian outfits of Pakistan joined the Afghan conflict backed ...
From Nek Muhammad to Maulana Fazlul Once Pakistan consented to fight US imposed war on terror as a Frontline State, it was asked by USA to flush out about 1000 foreign militants from FATA failing which the US military would be constrained to barge in. At that time, there were no Taliban in FATA or elsewhere in Pakistan except for a small percentage of Afghan Taliban fans. Regular troops ex 11 Corps entered Tirah Valley in Khyber Agency for the first time and from there proceeded to Shawal Valley in North Waziristan (NW) and then to South Waziristan (SW) in 2002 to launch operations against foreigners as well as their sympathizers. Their entry into SW and Musharraf’s attempts to appease American paymasters sowed seeds of mistrust and gave birth to Pakistani Taliban. Terrorism in Pakistan grew when Pak Army at the behest of USA fought the militants in Mehsud belt in SW and later in NW and authorized employment of drones. Foreign agencies based in Kabul on the other hand provided massive covert support to ...
India, U.S. sup with the devil: BRAHMA CHELLANEY Image of then Indian Foreign Minister Jaswant Singh — after having just chaperoned three jailed terrorists to freedom — walking hand-in-hand with the Afghan Taliban regime’s foreign minister, Mullah Wakil Ahmed Mutawakil, on the runway at Kandahar Airport in late 1999 still haunts. Mutawakil was later imprisoned by the U.S. military at the Bagram airbase in Afghanistan. Now Indian Finance Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram has greeted Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef in Goa, best known for its beaches. Zaeef, the Taliban’s ambassador to Pakistan until the U.S.-led military intervention in Afghanistan, spent four years in America’s notorious detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Spanish-born U.S. philosopher George Santayana’s warning is particularly true for India: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” In 1999, no sooner had a hijacked Indian Airlines flight landed in Kandahar than a hallucinating J ...
Why is India hosting CIA and Taliban? - Sandhya Jain, By facilitating a meeting between America’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Afghan Taliban in Goa, the UPA Government seems to have unilaterally compromised India’s strategic interests in Kabul and its friendly relations with Tehran, besides ‘forgiving’ the Taliban for its dubious role during the hijack of Indian Airlines aircraft IC-814 by Pakistani terrorists in 1999. Although an obliging media has maintained discreet silence on the issue, the episode would be known to all major world capitals, particularly as Sartaj Aziz, advisor to Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif, was in New Delhi at the same time, meeting separatist leaders from Jammu & Kashmir. As Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram (also a former Home Minister) was present at the same Tehelka-sponsored event in Goa, it is inconceivable that all these events were not closely coordinated and connected. The development is bound to have a grim fallout for India, as Pakistan is a close al ...

ISLAMABAD: The appointment of Mullah Fazlullah as new chief of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) cannot be applicable until the Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Omar’s approval for the post, The News International reported. Unlike the Mehsud’s who were from Waziristan of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), Mullah Fazlullah hails from Sawat Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK). According to the sources, the decision was made to avoid rumours of split within the banished outfit (TTP) turning into a reality.Interestingly, TTP’s Shahidullah Shahid announced Fazlullah as new chief from Afghanistan. The underlying impression given by Shahid was that a meeting of the Taliban council (or shura) was held in Afghanistan as its last meeting held in North Waziristan was where a US drone strike had killed Hakimullah Mehsud. According to sources quoted in the report, the 17-member central shura held several sessions for three days to reach a consensus on appointing a new chief as up to six commanders were vying for the ...
The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s (TTP) appointment of a new hardline leader opposed to peace talks and with a long history of attacks against the military could push the army into launching a fresh offensive, analysts said Friday. The election of Maulana Fazlullah, notorious for leading the militants’ brutal two-year rule in the Swat valley, is like a “red rag to a bull”, one analyst said. It could also raise tensions with Kabul at a critical juncture as US-led forces withdraw from Afghanistan after 12 years of war. While Kabul has long accused Islamabad of supporting the Afghan Taliban, Fazlullah has orchestrated cross-border attacks from his hideout in eastern Afghanistan, and Pakistan suspects its neighbour’s intelligence services of supporting him. Fazlullah, nicknamed Mullah Radio for his fiery sermons over the airwaves denouncing polio vaccination campaigns and female education, is renowned as an uncompromising commander. Intelligence agencies believes he is linked to the failed attempt to ...
Welcome to a new era of violence, bomb blasts and suicide attacks. The divided-into-52-groups Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan now successfully unites under the Leadership of Mullah Fazlullah, who happens to be an eye-candy of Afghan Taliban too. Now you can celebrate the death of Hakimullah Mehsud + Peace Talks by your beloved USA and justify drone strikes. Oh and don't worry about anyone calling Mehsud a Martyr, we all are going to embrace that kuttun wali martyrdom soon.
Drone attacks diplomacy [Dr K.N. Pandita] Killing of TTP chief Hikmatuallah Mehsud along with five more commanders of TTP in a recent American drone attack has triggered a new debate in Pakistani political circles. Baitullah Mehsud, the predecessor of Hikmatullah and the founder of Tehrik-e-Taliban-i-Pakistan (TTP), a confederate of Al-Qaeda-Afghan Taliban and also in liaison with Haqqani and Hekmatyar terrorist groups was killed in drone attack in 2009. TTP spokesperson Shahidullah cast doubts on Pakistan civilian government and the army colluding with the CIA in latter’s drone attacks in North Waziristan. In a statement he said, “We were waiting for a meeting while Pakistan Army and government were sitting with the US finalising a deal to “sell” us”. Unnerved by the belligerent mood of the TTP, Pakistan foreign office summoned the American Ambassador Olson in Islamabad and conveyed to him Pakistan’s disapproval of drone attacks. The Ambassador, without elucidating his remark, remained conte ...
Though the killing of Hakimullah Mehsud by unmanned US drone strike, is a good thing and a positive step toward peace. However if we look at the history of US drone strikes, every-time there has been a drone strike only Pakistani Taliban leaders have been killed. From Nek Mohammad to Baitullah Mehsud, to mullah Nazir and now Hakimullah Mehsud. The question that arises is why only Pakistani Taliban are being targeted, why there has never been any members of the Afghan Taliban. Please share you thoughts and opinions on this!
Top Pakistani judge questions release of Afghan Taliban leader Islamabad 31/Oct: Questioning the release of former Afghan Taliban deputy chief Mullah Baradar by Pakistani authorities, a senior judge on Thursday said "due process" should have been followed in the matter. Peshawar High Court Chief Justice Dost Mohammad Khan questioned the legal grounds on which Baradar was released by Pakistani authorities. He ordered authorities to inform the court about the laws under which Baradar was first arrested and then released by the government. Even the President or the Prime Minister do not have the authority to free prisoners without due process, he observed. Khan raised the issue while a two-judge bench was hearing a case related to "missing persons" or those detained without charge by security and intelligence agencies. He said it appeared that Baradar had been released by the government under pressure from foreign agencies. Baradar was captured during a joint operation by Pakistani and American intelligence ...
US, Fooled again on Pak? Trudy Rubin | When Pak PM Nawaz Sharif came to Washington this week, I couldn't help thinking of the adage: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." Sure enough, despite a long history of U.S. presidents being duped by Pakistani leaders, President Obama plans to restore more than $1.5 billion in blocked assistance for Islamabad. The aid was blocked because Pakistan never came clean about who helped Osama Bin Laden hide for years in Abbottabad. And U.S.-Pakistani relations are stressed because Pakistan hosts Afghan Taliban who kill U.S. soldiers, as well as jihadis who kill Western and Indian civilians. Never mind. When it comes to Pakistan, hope seems to spring eternal. If the United States eases tension with Islamabad, administration thinking goes, the Pakistanis may finally press the Taliban to endorse an Afghan peace accord before the U.S. withdrawal in 2014. But why expect different results now from a country whose leaders have deceived Washington for decades ...
QUETTA, Pakistan - Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar issued a fresh appeal to his supporters Friday to turn public opinion against the next year’s presidential elections - another headache for the country as it prepares for the withdrawal of U.S.-led NATO forces. “We have been tasked by our leadership to urge the public and clerics to boycott the elections next year," senior Taliban leader and cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz told NBC News while on a visit to Quetta, just across the border in neighboring Pakistan. “An anti-election campaign has been launched,” he said. "I am here to convince the Afghan refugees residing in Quetta not to participate in elections.”
Though the TTP of Swat did issue an edict closing schools for girls in the valley, it was an act not sanctioned by the leadership of the movement. While leaders of the TTP attempted to distance themselves from the proclamation, Mullah Omar, the uncontested leader of the Afghan Taliban, issued the statement, “We do not agree with the ban on education in Swat…We are in contact with Maulana Fazlullah and we hope an announcement to withdraw the decision will be made soon on his FM radio.”
CONSERVATIVE CHICKEN-HAWKS START TWO WARS AT ONCE! Here are some of the prominent neo-conservatives associated or influential with the George Bush administration who desperately wanted to invade Iraq long before Bush even took office. The 9/11 terrorist attacks gave them a pseudo-rationale for going after Saddam Hussein and his oilfields, even though Saddam and Iraq had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11. So the neocon chicken-hawks had to first start a war in Afghanistan, ostensibly to go after Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden for actually devising the attack, and punish the Afghan Taliban for allowing Al Qaeda to train in their country. • George W.

MANY Pakistanis are confused about the true nature of the Taliban and the Taliban movement. But some can clearly distinguish between the Afghan and Pakistani Taliban and see the former as a legitimate resistance force fighting against foreign occupants in their homeland. This perception exists even if Pakistani Taliban reject the impression that they are different from the Afghan Taliban. In fact, many believe that Pakistani Taliban groups are not deserving of sympathy and label them as foreign agents, criminals and thugs. But then again, there are others who give them maximum concessions and say the Pakistani Taliban are a misled lot of militants. This shows that there is confusion about the Pakistani Taliban — and this is reflected in the difference of opinion among policymakers, political and religious parties, the media and the general public. Taking advantage of the confusion that prevails, the Afghan Taliban groups operating across the Pak-Afghan border camouflage themselves in Pakistan’s doctri ...
Islamabad (AFP) - Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif departed on Saturday for talks in the United States, with the Afghan peace process and the prickly issue of Washington's drone campaign likely to top the agenda. Relations between Pakistan and the US, fractious allies in the "war on terror", have been on the mend this year after lurching from crisis to crisis in 2011 and 2012. Sharif meets President Barack Obama on Wednesday with Washington keen to press the Pakistani premier to help faltering efforts to secure peace between Kabul and the Afghan Taliban. Sharif will use the trip to seek help for his country's ailing economy and dysfunctional energy sector. Daniel Markey, a senior fellow at US think-tank the Council on Foreign Relations, said that since coming to power in May Sharif had impressed Washington with his willingness to be a partner. In the past Pakistan has been accused of being unhelpful in the Afghan peace process and of maintaining links with the Taliban, whose government in the 1990s ...
Just as we were analysing Hakeemullah Mehsud's interview and his firm stance, we were wondering why western media is so concerned suddenly about the TTP, the peace talks and the negotiations? There are still some people in Pakistan who don't realise that the TTP itself is a CIA backed group. The leaders of the TTP were all once Guantanamo Bay detainees who were "released". It begs the question who they are releasing from Guantanamo Bay and under what conditions? Western media has highlighted and glorified Hakeemullah in every possible manner. Before we could jump to the conclusion, last night we received a news of clash between the Afghan Taliban and the TTP in Kunar province (the homebase of TTP) and heard that Mullah Fazulalah has been badly injured. That is where we started realising, that something bad has happened with the assets of foreign elements in Kunar province. Today I am receiving news that Mullah Fazululah aka Mullah Radio who terrorised Swat for many years and played in the hands of foreign ...
National: WAZIRISTAN: The spokesman of the proscribed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) said the peace talks cannot be successful until the withdrawal of army troops from the tribal areas and the release of prisoners. In an interview to a group of journalists at a secret location in Waziristan, the TTP spokesman Shahidullah Shahid also demanded an end to the drone strikes. He disclosed that they were being funded by Afghan Taliban. He said in the beginning the Pakistani Taliban used to provide financial help to the Afghan Taliban but now the latter had become so strong that they no longer needed support from the former. “Now they extend assistance to others besides providing secure positions in Afghanistan,” he added. Shahidullah Shaid told the journalists that the Afghan Taliban had also provided shelter to Mullah Fazlullah in Kunar province. Referring to Malala Yousafzai, he said she was not attacked for pursuing education but for her going against the religion of Islam. “Had we got another chance, ...

*Pakistan warns of polio outbreak after fresh cases* MIRAMSHAH: Health officials in Pakistan on Wednesday warned of a serious polio outbreak after the disease was detected in 16 children in a tribal district where militant groups have banned vaccination. Doctor Khayal Mir Jan, the top health official in Pakistan's militant-infested North Waziristan tribal district, on the Afghan border, told AFP that thousands of children were at risk. Pakistan is one of only three countries in the world where the highly infectious, crippling disease remains endemic. Infections shot up from a low of 28 in 2005 to almost 200 last year. “Polio virus has been detected in 16 children since the Taliban ban,” Jan told AFP. “We are waiting for the result of the stool samples of another 42 children suspected of having the disease.” Local warlord Hafiz Gul Bahadur banned polio vaccinations in Waziristan in June 2012, alleging the campaign was a cover for espionage. Bahadur, who is allied with Afghan Taliban fighting US-led ...

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Friday said that detained Afghan Taliban commander Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar will be released on Saturday, said a statement issued by the foreign office. The statement noted that Islamabad will release Bradar, a close aide of Taliban supreme commander Mullah Muhammad Omar, in order to further facilitate the Afghan reconciliation process. Afghanistan High Peace Council has been making efforts for the release of key Taliban figures detained in Pakistan to expedite peace efforts ahead of US-led foreign troops drawdown from the war-stricken country. Taliban who ruled Kabul before the US invasion and waged a bloodiest war against foreign forces demanded released of their leaders before entering any peace deal with the US. Peace efforts suffered a blow when Afghan President Hamid Karzai protested over opening of Taliban's political office in Qatar due to Islamic movement's banner and flag.

Afghan Taliban kill 15 police in Farah province: (Afghanistan) * The Taliban have ambushed a police patrol in the western Afghan province of Farah, killing 15 policemen and injuring 10 others, officials say. The attack took place on Highway One - the main road connecting Kabul, Kandahar, Herat and Mazar-e-Sharif - which has seen many insurgent attacks. Police said a number militants died in fighting following the ambush. It is the latest in a series of attacks ahead of the withdrawal of foreign combat troops in 2014. "A convoy of police who went to inspect a highway patrol unit were caught in a Taliban ambush [late] on Wednesday," Farah province spokesman Abdul Rahman Zhuwandi told the AFP news agency. "There was fighting between them in which 15 national police were killed and 10 wounded, while several Taliban were also killed." The ambush followed efforts earlier on Wednesday by the Taliban to overrun a Nato base in the eastern province of Ghazni. Although their attack was repulsed, a US soldier was kil ...

"In that mail the enemy losers have tried to influence attacks by mujahideen fighters," Mujahid said. "We strongly reject sending any such email on a stoppage of operations."

The US's Afghan Exit May Depend on a Syrian One By Sharmine Narwani - Tue, 2013-06-25 14:52- Sandbox Washington’s options in Syria are dwindling - and dwindling fast. Trumped up chemical weapons charges against the Syrian government this month failed to produce evidence to convince a skeptical global community of any direct linkage. And the US’s follow-up pledge to arm rebels served only to immediately underline the difficulty of such a task, given the fungibility of weapons-flow among increasingly extremist militias. Yes, for a brief few days, Syrian oppositionists congratulated themselves on this long-awaited American entry into Syria’s bloodied waters. They spoke about "game-changing" weapons that would reverse Syrian army gains and the establishment of a no-fly zone on Syria’s Jordanian border – a la Libya. Eight thousand troops from 19 countries flashed their military hardware in a joint exercise on that border, dangling F-16s and Patriot missiles and “superb cooperation” in a made-for- ...
Over 100 Afghan diplomats defect rather than return to Kabul When U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and the Administration aren't begging Russia to return Edward Snowden or to stop supporting Bashar al-Assad, they're begging the Afghanistan Taliban to hold peace talks. The U.S. Administration has been so desperate to get the Afghan Taliban to have peace talks, they've even dropped the preconditions announced last year by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: They must forego suicide talks and violence, they must sever ties with al-Qaeda, and they must accept Afghanistan's constitution, including protections for women and minority. The Taliban have rejected all of these demands, and the Administration have acquiesced. It now turns out that some 105 Afghanistan diplomats defected en masse on Saturday, when they were all supposed to return to Kabul for scheduled rotation. They've remained in the country where they have been posted, and said that they would apply for asylum in their respective host coun ...
Qatar emir transfers power to son in historic transition. Qatar's ruler handed over the reins of the tiny but influential Persian Gulf nation to his son Tuesday -- a development seen as remarkable for several reasons. Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani's decision to cede power willingly is a first in the modern history of the region. The norm is for Gulf leaders to rule for decades until their death or until circumstances conspire to overthrow them, such as the Arab Spring uprisings that toppled leaders in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya. Sheikh Hamad himself came to power in 1995 by overthrowing his father in a bloodless coup. The second reason Tuesday's transition is historic is because the son, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, now becomes the youngest monarch in the region. He is 33. Qatar prepares for transfer of power While the timing of the handover was unexpected, Sheikh Tamim has been heir apparent for the past decade and was appointed deputy commander-in-chief of Qatar's armed forces. He was educated in ...

Wall Street Journal June 19, 2013 Pg. 15 Benghazi's Legacy Of Broken Trust When serving in harm's way, diplomats, spies and soldiers need to know that their government has their back. By Kevin G. Norton In 2009, I was a member of a small team of advisers to the Afghan police in Paktia province in the mountains near the southeastern Afghan border. One hot afternoon in early June, we received a desperate call for help from another American unit that was under a sustained attack. We drove out to their position as fast as we could, only to find several casualties and chaos. The Taliban cut off the attack soon after we arrived. After we evacuated the casualties, the officer in charge of the unit told me that he could not find his interpreter. I led a small group of soldiers down into a wide field to look for the interpreter. We knew the danger: At any moment the Taliban could have resumed the attack and caught us in a very exposed position. We searched for more than 10 minutes before we found his lifeless body ...

A little light hearted-ness does the heart good.(sent to me by a friend): A fleeing Taliban terrorist, desperate for water, was plodding through the Afghan desert when he saw something far off in the distance. Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the mirage, only to find a very frail little old Jewish man standing at a small makeshift display rack - selling ties. The Taliban terrorist asked, "Do you have water?" The Jewish man replied, "I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5." The Taliban shouted hysterically, *** Infidel! I do not need such an over-priced western adornment - I spit on your ties. I need water!” "Sorry, I have none - just ties - pure silk - and only $5." "Pahh! A curse on your ties, I should wrap one around your scrawny little neck and choke the life out of you but . . . I must conserve my energy and find water!" "Okay," said the little old Jewish man, “It does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie from me or that you hate me, threaten my life and ...

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for an early-morning attack near the presidential palace in a heavily guarded area of the Afghan capital Kabul. A Taliban statement said one of the targets was the Ariana Hotel, which houses a CIA station/
A nearby building known to house a CIA base also came under attack as explosions and gunfire erupted for more than an hour in an area close to heavily secured Western embassies and ministry buildings.
The assault comes a week after the Taliban opened an office in Qatar to pursue peace talks with the U.S.
An hour in Kabul: A reporter's eyewitness account of a deadly Taliban attack
Afghanistan was a fools’ war... The US has discovered the hard way that there is no military fix to the conflict, but its decision to engage the Taliban in talks may be little more than a face- saver. Osama Bin Laden was permitted to flee his Tora Bora cave complex to Pakistan and now it appears that his protectors, the Taliban, which the US pledged to defeat, are poised to become Afghanistan’s prodigal sons. The $ 6 trillion ( the war’s financial burden on the US alone) question here is: What were the past 12 years all about? Tens of thousands of Afghan lives have been sacrificed; over 3,000 coalition soldiers have been killed while 50,000 were wounded in action, many requiring care for the rest of their lives. The terrible price in blood and treasure paid by all concerned could have been brought to a minimum had the Bush administration listened to President Hamid Karzai in December 2001 when he announced that amnesty had been extended to “common Taliban”, including their leader Mullah Omar, pr ...

THIS JUST IN As negotiations for the US withdrawal from Afghanistan have once again come to a halt, the Taliban Supreme Council has offered to level the playing field by sending a group of 400 battle-hardened Taliban peacekeepers to the U.S. city of Chicago, to help pacify one of the most violent regions in the Great Plains area of the North American continent. With many years of combat experience in violent areas of their own country and having fought rebels, insurgents, villagers, urban militias, rival drug lords, as well as Soviet and American occupying forces on foot, horses, camels, donkeys, and trucks, they may be just what the Chicago city officials need to pacify their own population and bring the recently publicized murder rate under control. Details as to the logistical challenges have yet to be worked out, but already many US officials are expressing support for the idea.

Over the past decade, India has invested heavily in Afghanistan’s reconstruction. Recognizing India’s significant economic and development contributions, the United States has called on New Delhi to play an important role in the new Silk Road initiative aimed at transforming Afghanistan into a regional trade hub. At the same time, New Delhi has been reluctant to become directly involved in supporting Afghanistan’s nascent security sector. The many uncertainties surrounding next year’s security transition from international to Afghan leadership raise further questions about New Delhi’s role in the Afghan endgame. India’s decision-makers acknowledge that India’s own internal security would be at risk if the international drawdown from Afghanistan leaves behind a security vacuum that is filled by Pakistan-backed militant groups. New Delhi can no longer ignore the related consequences. And while some of the Pakistan-related sensitivities are important for India, it should not approach its relati ...

There is absolutely NO "negotiating" with the Taliban. Letter from WOMEN FOR AFGHAN WOMEN ORG: June 25, 2013 Dear WAW Supporter, As you know, the Taliban has opened an office in Doha, Qatar, and claims to want to negotiate a peaceful solution to the long war in Afghanistan. Although we yearn for peace as much as you, Women for Afghan Women believes that far from achieving that goal, negotiating with the Taliban is the way to brutal repression. The Taliban are murderers who will stop at nothing to regain the totalitarian power they held in Afghanistan in the 1990s. At 6:30 am today, they conducted a brazen attack on the president’s palace. We awoke to TV images of little girls and boys and their teachers at a nearby school crawling out from under rubble. The Taliban have burned down hundreds of girls’ schools, murdered teachers who defy them by teaching girls, threaten those of us who run shelters for abused females. The Taliban have not agreed to respect and obey the Afghan constitution. They have no ...

U.S. Supported Kabul on "Islamic Emirates" Controversy, Still Hopeful for Peace Talks TOLOnews.com Monday, 24 June 2013 James Dobbins, the U.S. Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, arrived in Kabul on Monday and expressed solidarity with the Afghan government on Taliban negotiations, remaining optimistic about their future. On his second trip to Afghanistan as Special Envoy, Dobbins spoke about the recent controversy that erupted following the Taliban's ceremony to inaugurate its new political office in Doha last Tuesday. "I think it may have been a combination of misunderstanding and a desire for a certain propaganda victory, which I think turned out to be – from their standpoint – disappointing," Dobbins said in reference to the Taliban's unsanctioned flying of the group's flag and brandishing of an "Islamic Emirates of Afghanistan" placard during the ceremony. News broke last Tuesday about the Taliban's new office, which was intended to offer a facility for peace negotiations with the U.S. an ...

Today i read orya Maqbool's article about Afghan Taliban. voice of my heart. they lost govt but earned dignity. what we got? Lost every thing, dignity, trust of friends, peace. we tried to avoid stone age, but we reached there
i've a simple doubt. This is the time America prepares to pullout thier army troops from Afghanistan. Can they establish peace in Afghan??? Can they defeat Taliban by all meaning??? If yes, then why did they invite Taliban to open an office in Qatar for 'peace talks'??? If no, then why they have tresspassed to Afghan and occupied it for more than a decade??? Why they spend 636 billion dollars in Afghan as war cost??? I think, only Obama and God know the answer... :p :p :

This establishes a communication channel that is a de facto alternative to the one manned by those who take the names Qari Yousuf Muhammad and Zabihullah Mujahed, which is directly linked to the IEA website.

As the date for US withdrawal from Afghanistan approaches rather quickly, there is little news to show progress towards the goal of reconciliation. Ironically, none of the stakeholders are panicking about the relative stagnant state of affairs. Going by the international mood, a lot still depends on the role of Pakistan. While most of the attention was focused on the elections, the challenges confronted by the nation have not changed with the transfer of power. From early indications, Nawaz Sharif’s foreign policy outlook does not represent any dramatic shift from the past. This, obviously as was expected. Actions on the ground suggest a policy to eliminate the irreconcilable Taliban elements, before approaching a negotiated solution. Keeping the defense and foreign ministries close to his heart, shows the importance of Afghan reconciliation for the new prime minister, especially when NATO equipment is likely to be retracted via routes through Pakistan. Then there is the complex task of managing public ...

For years many of us had argued the need to get out of Afghanistan. To end the fighting, the dying, the destruction, the nation-building. To end the foolish fantasy that we were building a Western-style democracy there. We cannot leave, we were told for all those years. If we leave Afghanistan now, the Taliban will come back! Well guess what, after 12 years, trillions of dollars, more than 2,245 Americans killed and 17,674 wounded, and perhaps more than 50,000 dead Afghan civilians and fighters, the Taliban is coming back anyway!

Afghan revelations: Pakistan-US secret diplomacy created Doha roadmap The Express Tribune By Syed Talat Hussain June 20, 2013 ISLAMABAD - Months-long painstaking and secret negotiations involving Islamabad and Washington have yielded a detailed roadmap for steering negotiations with the Afghan Taliban which will start to unfold with the release of five Afghan prisoners from Guantanamo Bay and the return of the captured US soldier PFC Bowe Bergdahl, at present in Taliban custody. While the opening of the Taliban office in Doha, Qatar, has captured headlines across the world, wide-ranging interviews with highly-placed diplomatic, military and foreign office sources reveal that this office is but one of the many elements of a complex process, the ultimate aim of which is for all stakeholders in Afghanistan to share power through an inclusive election process under a possibly modified Afghanistan constitution. “The journey begins now and if all goes well should co-terminate with the exit of the American com ...

last one was quote from US News article about US Afghan Taliban talks in Qatar
(R) Afghanistan Article Taliban Divided On Making Peace The government continues to criticize Pakistan for meddling in Afghan affairs and supporting the Afghan Taliban. Most Afghans resent the fact that Pakistan created the Taliban (recruiting and arming Afghan religious school students in Pakistani refugee camps) in the early 1990s and sending them in to end the civil war and become a new government that would be heavily influenced by Pakistan. The Taliban failed to end the civil war (which was still going on in September 2001) and misruled the parts of the country they did control. The Taliban are also hated for their decades of cooperation with drug gangs. Unofficial taxes on the heroin and opium trade have always provided most of the Taliban income but have also created over a million addicts while only benefiting (economically) a small segment of the population. While most Afghans are religiously conservative, they also dislike Taliban efforts that force them to follow a particularly strict form of I ...
QUETTA: Pashtunabada poor, wind- and flyblown suburb of Quettais the type of Pakistani town where commanders in the Afghan Taliban generally lived after being kicked out of their home country in 2001, says a report published in The Newsweek. Modest cement-block and mud-brick, one- and two-story homes sit cheek by jowl along the narrow, largely unpaved streets and open sewers. Graffiti such as Long Live Mullah Omar and Long Live the Jihad are scrawled on walls; the black-and-white flag of a pro-Taliban political party flies over many homes. Living in a town like Pashtunabad carried advantages for the Afghan Taliban's leadership: it allowed them to fly under the radar and cultivate an image as average Joes, even as they were directing an insurgency against U.S. troops across the border. But in recent years, some Taliban commanders have begun moving out of places like Pashtunabadand into new neighborhoods that could not be more different. They have transformed rural districts of mud-brick homes in places lik ...

Afghan Taliban boldly attack on Kabul airport - Houston Chronicle
Editorial Karzai’s cheekiness Afghan President Hamid Karzai was blowing hot and cold on the national media the other day at a function in Kabul. Do not damage the country's "core national interests" while covering the protests against Afghanistan's neighbours, he was quoted warning the media outlets. Ostensibly his ire was provoked by the screaming coverage of the recent anti-Iran protests in Kabul by the Afghan media networks, whereas it is widely believed that his own regime had actually sponsored those demonstrations. Notably, the Iranians have lately incurred his anger for inviting a delegation of the Afghan Taliban and holding talks with them. He is doubly miffed. Although his spokesmen have taken the public stance that Tehran had unacceptably bypassed Kabul while inviting the Taliban peace interlocutors, Karzai's real frustration is that the Taliban have as yet not softened a wee bit their stiff stance that in no event would they talk to him as they consider him just a lame duck puppet of the US-l ...

Hakimullah Mehsud maintains ties to al-Qaeda, the Afghan Taliban and various Pakistani jihadist groups, such as Lashkar-e-Taiba, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, and Jaish-e-Mohammed.[9] Reports initially indicated he was fatally wounded on January 14, 2010 by a U.S. drone attack[10][11] although two videos released by the TTP in 2010 and 2011 proved that he survived the attack.[12][13] Mehsud was reported by Pakistani intelligence to have been killed by US drone strike on 12 January 2012.[14] However, the Pakistani Taliban denied the claim.[15] Presently, the FBI is offering a $5,000,000 US Dollar reward for information leading to his capture. Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Chief Hakimullah Mehsud has called the democratic system un-Islamic, adding that TTP wants to replace democracy in Pakistan and all other Islamic countries with Shariah Law. In a video message, Mehsud said that non-believers are trying to divide Muslims in the name of democracy. He further ...
Why they are reporting that Afghan Taliban and Lashkar-e-Taiba are planning an attack on Pakistani Taliban in Mohmand Agencey? via Azad Pashtun There is a big story about Afghan Taliban, Lashkar Taiba and Ansarul Islam planning an attack on Tehrik e Taliban Pakistan in Mohmand. There may indeed be renewed war in Mohmand but the reported reasons that Afghan Taliban are angry at TTP for kidnapping and other crimes and this way bringing 'Taliban' a bad name; that Lashkar Taiba are long-time rivals just like Ansarul Islam so they are all planning a major strike against TTP together stink of a plan to re-start war in north-western Pakhtunkhwa. 1. First of all there is very little TTP in Mohmand. If anyone wants to hit TTP, they must go to Waziristan. Why choose Mohmand? 2. Afghan Taliban have enough pressure from the Afghan National Army (and NATO to a lesser extent because they are not doing that much fighting now). Afghan Talib is getting hunted more fiercely than ever before by the more confident Afghan Arm ...
Now where are the paid supporters and activists of TTP/HUT...who always defended their atrocities and tried their level best to prove that TTP and Afghan Taliban are the same?
ISI still engaged with the Taliban: US expert By Lalit K Jha Jun 6, 2013 - 10:14 WASHINGTON (PAN): The Inter-Services Intelligence continues to be engaged with the Taliban, as the Pakistan Army believes the US would abandon Afghanistan as it did in the 1990s, a top American counter-terrorism and intelligence analyst has said. “For twenty years Pakistan's army --t he real power broker in the country -- has backed the Afghan Taliban. It helped create the Taliban's Islamic Emirate in the 1990s and build the Al Qaeda state within a state," the expert said. Bruce Riedel, a former CIA official and now a scholar at the Brookings Institute, accused the Pakistan Army of providing safe haven, arms, expertise and other help to the Taliban. “It briefly pretended to abandon the Taliban to avoid American anger in 2001, misleading George Bush. By 2004 under the leadership of its then spy chief and today top general, Ashfaq Kayani, the ISI was deeply engaged in helping the Taliban again,” he alleged. Senior Taliban ...
Kashmir armed struggle not well co-ordinated: Pir Syed Geelani ADIL LATEEF | Interview | Many analysts, particularly in the Indian mainland, believe that Syed Ali Shah Geelani (SASG) has a considerable say over the militant leadership, but the octogenarian leader tells Kashmir Dispatch’s Adil Lateef (AL) that his path doesn’t coincide with the militants fighting in Kashmir. The armed struggle in Kashmir, he says, is not well co-ordinate. Excerpts: AL: When Afghans defeated Communist Soviet Union in 1990, many ‘mujahideen’ came to Kashmir and fought here. Apprehensions are being raised that after the exit of US-led NATO in Afghanistan in 2014, Taliban may eye Kashmir. SASG: The Afghan Taliban and Al Qaeda have been declared as terrorist organizations by America. Although they (Afghan Taliban) are fighting and resisting against American occupation and we support them, but, if they would come here, India and World will label our movement as terrorism. We will lose the sympathy of World community. Ind ...
Waliur Rehman: From madrassa teacher to Taliban commander Waliur Rehman Mehsud, 40, was a member of Malkhel tribe, a sub-clan of the Mehsuds inhibiting Sarokai Manzai area of South Waziristan. He received his early education from a madrassa in Tank district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and then went to Faisalabad district of Punjab where he studied at the Jamia Imdadia seminary. After a teaching stint at Karama madrassa, in South Waziristan, he joined the Haqqani network – the deadliest of all Afghan Taliban factions. Later when the TTP was founded in 2008, he joined the group and became the spokesperson of its head honcho, Baitullah Mehsud. Among militant circles he’s known as Mufti Waliur Rehman. He is the eldest of six siblings, had three wives and two daughters. The death of Baitullah Mehsud in a US drone strike in 2009 led to a tug of war between Waliur Rehman and Hakimullah Mehsud. On August 9, 2009, media reported that Waliur Rehman shot and injured Hakimullah during a Taliban Shura meeting which was ...
Talking with Taliban By Imran Malik June 2 - The AfPak Region (APR) is anticipating massive change. All regional players, to include the allies (US, Afghanistan and Pakistan) and the Taliban (al-Qaeda, Afghan Taliban, TTP and other affiliates), are trying to mould the emerging strategic environment to suit their respective interests. The contours of the belligerents’ strategies are gradually becoming discernible. (The Nation, Pakistan) The allies apparently want to “determine, dictate and control the pace and direction of the emerging change in the APR come December 2014.”The Taliban, on the other hand, are likely to persist with their primary aim of carving out an Islamic Emirate from within the APR, as a prelude to the ultimate aim of recreating a universal Khilafat. In the run up to the US/Nato/Isaf egress, they are likely to view Afghanistan and Pakistan as two separate fronts and deal with them piecemeal; that is, to ‘hold’ one front, while ‘dealing’ with the other conclusively and the ...
