Russia welcomes the Taliban as a lesser evil in Afghanistan

Russia welcomes the Taliban as a lesser evil in Afghanistan

As the Taliban continue their advance in Afghanistan, the Kremlin sees potential benefits. The Taliban are officially designated as terrorists in Russia but Moscow believes that they are a lesser evil compared with other extremists, such as Islamic State, who could flourish as the US withdraws its troops.

NATO is a joke. A bad and very expensive joke. Russia, with a fraction of the NATO budget is developping weapons and military power that makes NATO shit in their pants. Because NATO, like everything in the west is all about corruption, cronyism and giving morons high-paid jobs. Russia is preparing for the breakup of the impossible zombie country called ” Afghanistan” when in all of history, there were never any “Afghans”. Uzbeks, tadschiks, hazaras and turkmens will not be governed by the throat-cutting, hand-chopping islamist crazies mopped up by the west. They will take back their areas of northern… Read more »

And now the clueless geriatric who is so happy his b… gets wiped every day and who is – as gets imcreasingly clear – run by completely insane psychopaths wants to force the complete U.S. military to basically commit suicide by getting “the shot”.

Let’s see what happens. These guys don’t need russia or anyone else. They will end the U.S. all by themselves.

What is this obsession with these shots? It reminds me of the Brits’ obsession with Russia, forever on their brain.

I hope you are right that Russia, Turkey and Iran will come to rescue the poor Afghan tribes. I also agree with “Russia welcomes the Taliban as a lesser evil in Afghanistan.” It is generous for Russia to state that, considering it was the Taliban, the former Mujahadeen, who were created by the US in order to drive out the Soviets from Afghanistan to begin with. Barbaric as the Taliban may be, they will still treat their fellow Muslim Afghan tribesmen better than the US did, or the UK would.

It’s pretty great at deluding itself. Take your victories where you can, I say.

Japan post-World War II as a model for Britain? I hardly think so. It was the Korean and Vietnam Wars that made Japan wealthy again. By analogy, would the Brits welcome a couple of major wars in its vicinity along with US military bases and tens of thousands of US troops stationed on its soil? I doubt it.

Bwahaha. Japanese are like the Koreans and Chinese, Asian conformity a tradition. Brits on the other hand, are constantly at odds with one another, undisciplined to the core. My God, they needed the Indians and Germans to rescue their auto industry. Nah, their mentality is to build an economy by imperial plunder. Been that way for centuries.

Where they shot themselves in the foot is with their russophobia bordering on psychosis. Russia after ’91 was open territory for foreigners to engage in industrial & commercial projects. Brits have a decent engineering class but they failed to take advantage, unlike the Germans and others. Now that Russia has made it past the roaring 90’s, they don’t need or want them, other than thieving oligarchs looking for save havens to park their loot. Germany and a few other Europeans will hang in there and ride a rising tide as secondary players but the bell has tolled for Brits on… Read more »

The Japanese had a post war ministry called MITI, dedicated to using state funds to invest in industrialization of their determination as critical to growth. You know, the very same concept that Russia and China pursue as well to various degrees, and held up by the Brits as proof that they are dictatorial regimes. Guess that’s what those Brits had in mind for following suit. LOL

Is there a YT link that I can go directly to Mercouris’ latest insights and skip all the anti-vax, covid’s a scam, the world is ending, financial collapse imminent, religious crusades diatribes that have found the Duran as a refuge?

I enjoy listening to Crosstalk’s serious guests’ commentary too, if only I could skip the constant interruptions and hijacking of the discussion by monologue-crazed Lavelle, who I often agree with but his style is borderline neurotic. I guess it’s all a take it or leave it deal but I can always wish.

One would have thought that after the British debacle of the 3 Afghan wars in the 19th century was enough. But hey… they want to do it again!
