Panjshir needs help

The Taliban’s rapid advance in Afghanistan has briefly stalled only in the face of strong resistance mounted by the people of the country’s recalcitrant mountainous province of Panjshir.

Handover ceremony at Camp Anthonic, from US Army to Afghan Special Forces, Helmand province, Afghanistan, May 2, 2021.

Afghan fiasco – the end of a unipolar world?

 Just a few months since Joe Biden’s election, US idea of terrorism has radically changed.

Games the Pentagon plays

Games the Pentagon plays

All this meaning that no military action is possible without an advanced economy and supplies.

The Ukrainian crisis and Biden’s interests

The Ukrainian crisis and Biden’s interests

The strange policy, pursued by the present occupant of the White House during the past few weeks is fairly surprising. Moreover, Joe Biden’s actions vis-à-vis Russia are downright contradictory, to say the least.
