USA: Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires.

After the longest war in American history, thousands of soldiers killed and wounded, trillions of dollars wasted on an unwinnable war, America has finally accepted its fate. Military historians call it a defeat.

US President Barak Obama said, “Afghanistan remains a dangerous place, and the Afghan people and their security forces continue to make tremendous sacrifices in defence of their country.”

America was warned by many to keep away from Afghanistan. However, Americans insisted to invade Afghanistan. Now they have firsthand experience of defeat in Afghanistan which is called the graveyard of empires.

British Defence Secretary, Philip Hammond said, “Afghanistan is an incredibly complex society … Our ability to influence outcomes is very limited … the long-run solution to security has to be an Afghan solution; it cannot be imposed from outside.”

British MPs cross-party defence committee labelled the pull out as “withdrawal through fatigue”. “The MPs warned that the start of an Afghan-led peace settlement with the Taliban was vital to ensure the country's stability and security after the withdrawal of British troops next year” according to the British newspaper Guardian.

Americans should realize that the days of their supremacy are over. It’s time for America and its Western allies to respect the will of people around the world.

India’s economic future depends on Kashmir

India depends on Pakistan to trade with Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia by land. India has shown its desperation to persuade Pakistan to let it trade by land during South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) meeting in Kathmandu, Nepal.

“Pakistan refused to approve two agreements allowing the seamless movement of goods and passenger vehicles and railways citing a lack of domestic approval, according to two officials, who did not want to be identified as the information was private” according to according to Bloomberg news agency.

Nepal’s Prime Minister Sushil Koirala said that “It is upon us, the member states, to decide how strong and effective SAARC becomes … Despite many transformative potential in the region, our achievement stands short of expectations, and we alone are responsible for shortcoming in the SAARC process.”

India has failed to implement United Nations’ resolutions to resolve the issue of Kashmir. If India wants to help its poor people by trade then it must resolve the issue of Kashmir. People of Kashmir deserve to decide their future through democratic means given to them through the resolutions of United Nations.

Kashmir - the most dangerous place in the world

Indian army has accelerated killing innocent civilians on the disputed border of Kashmir. Pakistani army responded to Indian attacks with a measured and proportionate retaliation. Pakistan has restrained itself in response to unprovoked Indian attacks.

However, former President of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf said that “Pakistan will never shy of using the nuclear weapons against India if the need arises” in an interview to a news channel from India. He said that Indian Prime Minister, “Modi will have to change his stance. He is anti-Muslim and anti-Pakistan”.

Former US President Bill Clinton also said that “the most dangerous place in the world today, I think you could argue, is the Indian subcontinent and the line of control in Kashmir”.

It is time for India to diffuse the dangerous situation in Kashmir. The core issue between India and Pakistan is Kashmir. The only way to resolve this issue is to let people of Kashmir decide their own destiny.

Sykes–Picot Agreement: Neo-Colonialism in the Middle East

The West and its allies under the American leadership are trying hard to support dictators in the Middle East. Americans have used extremists to further their cause. Americans supported the revolt against the Syrian regime.

Now, Americans have turned against their extremist allies in Syria. Americans supported the militants to weaken the iron grip of Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad. But these militants have become the new enemy of the West.

Americans played same game in Afghanistan. The Afghan Mujahideen (freedom fighters) who fought against the brutal Russians forces were labelled terrorists by Americans. Once, these Mujahideen were American ally.

The West is pushing its neo-colonialist agenda in the Middle East to sustain its dwindling hegemony. The West tried same strategy under Sykes–Picot Agreement of 1916. However, the defeat is the destiny of the West.

Genocide of Palestinians by Israel

United Nations and human right groups condemned the killing of hundreds of women and children by Israel during its recent offensive against Palestinians.

But no major report is published as a result of investigations into killings by Israel. The condemnation by these groups was empty rhetoric as usual. True believers of human rights are waiting for a proper report in to the atrocities by Israel.

Israel is committing crimes against humanity in Gaza

Israel has killed hundreds of women and children during its current attack on Gaza Strip. The West and its allies are showing no signs of mercy. Meanwhile, Israeli forces are committing crimes against humanity but the West is silent as usual.

The world’s conscious does not work when it comes to helping innocent Muslim civilians anywhere in the world. There is no hope that Israel will stop crimes against humanity in Palestine. Current situation due to Israeli crimes will help non-state actors to take matters in their own hands.

Its time that United Nation and other international bodies play their role to stop crimes against humanity by Israel.

Echo of Sykes Picot agreement

Former Prime Minister of UK, Tony Blair has absolved himself of any responsibility in recent Iraqi crisis. Blair said, “We have to liberate ourselves from the notion that ‘we’ caused this”.

The West is playing the old game which it planned while finalising Sykes Picot agreement in 1916. Its ally, Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, has also supported the Kurdish independence.

The West should understand that the days of its hegemony are over. The people will decide their own fate all over the world including in the West.
