US Troops Out of Afghanistan n 14 Months, if Taliban Keeps ‘Commitments’
Trust but verify. Place your bet on how long before the Taliban do a massive attack on something, breaking the agreement, dear Reader.
[ToloNews] US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, in Kabul on Saturday with Afghanistan's Caped President Ashraf Ghani
...former chancellor of Kabul University, now president of Afghanistan. Before returning to Afghanistan in 2002 he was a scholar of political science and anthropology. He worked at the World Bank working on international development assistance. As Finance Minister of Afghanistan between July 2002 and December 2004, he led Afghanistan's attempted economic recovery until the Karzais stole all the money...
, announced a joint agreement between the United States and Afghanistan, stating that a full withdrawal of all US troops will be completed within 14 months, with the current 13,000 US troops being reduced to 8,600 within 135 days. This plan is contingent on the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...

Caribbean-Latin America
Brazil will declare Hezbollah a terrorist group soon: Eduardo Bolsonaro
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Brazil will declare Iranian proxy group Hezbollah a terrorist organization "soon," Brazilian federal deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro told Al Arabiya English.

The move by Brazil follows Argentina

’s decision to designate Hezbollah a terrorist organization in July 2019, following in the footsteps of the United States, the Arab League
...an organization of Arabic-speaking states with 22 member countries and four observers. The League tries to achieve Arab consensus on issues, which usually leaves them doing nothing but a bit of grimacing and mustache cursing...
, the Europe
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
an Union, Canada, the United Kingdom, and several other countries.

"Inside the government, we are debating about the ways to stop terrorist groups from coming to Brazil. Argentina recognized [Hezbollah] because they had two terrorist attacks in ’92 and ’94," the son of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said.

#1  Luckily some Bosnians are not averse to doing what must be done. I hope they're still active and understand early that this just means unhealthy competition in the underworld. But if they try to assimilate these creatures into their indigenous gangs for cheap labour, they'll regret it. The UN and EU bureaucrats have tried to quietly disarm the citizens for years though.

The EU was trying to get the accursed Rohingya accommodated into 'potential EU states' in exchange for membership, where the resulting mayhem would still not affect the Ewww, but they could prove themselves champions of humanity to islamic nations.

Rohingya can be easily mistaken for bangladeshis too. They are the most savage of the South Asian muslim tribes. Think Wrong Turn, then marry the sasquatchery of islam to it.

Fifth Column
America’s Muslims fight back
The always wordy view from Egypt.
[AlAhram] Prominent Moslems in the United States are combating Islamist attempts to take over political podiums in the country and standing up to those who claim to speak on their behalf.

It has taken much meticulous planning, abundant financing and manipulative politics for the Moslem Brüderbund to infiltrate certain groups in the United States over the past four decades. Since the drafting of its masterplan to take control of various Moslem communities in North America in 1980, the Brotherhood has worked to spread its influence in Islamic centres in the US and to bring a number of Islamic communities in the country under its banner.

The Brotherhood has not operated under its own name, however. Instead, it formed several offshoot groups such as the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). These organizations, using the fronts of NGOs, have spread the doctrines of the Moslem Brüderbund in the US. Unlike in Europe

Great White North
Pakistani-Canadian Wants COVID19 Sufferers To Infect Trump Rallies
[OpIndia] Apart from exporting terror, the parody country of Pakistan has produced one of the most deranged individuals in the world. The sheer contempt for humanity from the people associated with the terror-state was once again displayed when Pakistani based self-proclaimed 'writer' Ali A Rizvi urged people affected with deadly coronavirus to attend rallies of US President Donald Trump and spread the contagious disease so that more people are affected by the disease.

In a hate-filled tweet, Ali A Rizvi on Friday directed the victims of the coronavirus to attend President Trump's rally so that they could spread the disease in the crowd, mostly Trump supporters. Rizvi listed four to-dos for the coronavirus victims and asked them to take some measures while urging them to attend Trump rallies in their area.

However, Rizvi asked to read his instruction in a reverse order, which meant that he wanted people to go to the rally first to spread the disease and then take precautionary measures. In a way, he wanted Trump's supporters to get killed due to the contagious disease which has already taken the lives of thousands of people across the world.

What to do if you have coronavirus:

1. See your healthcare provider - make sure you call ahead.
2. Separate yourself from family and friends.
3. Wear a face mask.
4. Cover all coughs/sneezes.
4. Attend every Trump rally in your area.

(Do all steps in reverse order)


- Ali A. Rizvi (@aliamjadrizvi) February 28, 2020

This is not the first time that Rizvi is craving for someone's death through coronavirus. Just a few days back, responding to a post tweeted by former US Attorney Preet Bharara, Rizvi said he would attend Trump's rally if he had carried coronavirus.

If I contracted coronavirus, I would go out and try to attend every Trump rally possible

International-UN-NGOs
Statement by NATO Secretary General after Article 4 consultations, by Jens Stoltenberg
[VoltaireNet] The North Atlantic Council has just met, following a request by Turkey to hold consultations under Article 4 of NATO's founding Washington Treaty on the situation in Syria.

Under Article 4 of the Treaty, any Ally can request consultations whenever, in the opinion of any of them, their territorial integrity, political independence or security is threatened.

I spoke to the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu last night about the situation in Syria, and he requested these consultations.

Allies offer their deepest condolences for the death of Turkish soldiers in last night's bombing near Idlib.

Allies condemn the continued indiscriminate air strikes by the Syrian regime and its backer Russia in Idlib province.

We call on them to stop their offensive. To respect international law. And to back UN efforts for a peaceful solution.

This dangerous situation must be deescalated to avoid further worsening of the horrendous humanitarian situation in the region, and to allow urgent humanitarian access for those trapped in Idlib. We urge an immediate return to the 2018 ceasefire.

Today's meeting is a sign of solidarity with Turkey.

Turkey is the NATO Ally most affected by the terrible conflict in Syria, which has suffered the most terrorist attacks, and which hosts millions of refugees.

NATO continues to support Turkey with a range of measures, including by augmenting its air defences, which helps Turkey against the threat of missile attacks from Syria.

I thank Turkey for briefing Allies regularly on the situation in Syria.

Allies will continue to follow developments on the South-eastern border of NATO very closely.

Iraq
Breaking: Iraq's PM-designate Allawi withdraws from post, prolonging deadlock
Iran's tool rejected
[Ay-Pee via SD UnionTrib] Iraq's prime minister-designate announced his withdrawal from the post Sunday night after failing to secure parliamentary support for his Cabinet selection, prolonging the political deadlock in the country amid multiple economic, health and security challenges.

Prime Minister designate Mohammed Allawi blamed political parties he did not name, saying they "were not serious about implementing reforms that they promised to the people" and accusing them of placing obstacles in the way of a new and independent government.

"If I agreed to offer concessions, I would be prime minister now, but I tried everything possible to save the country from sliding toward the unknown and resolve the current crisis. But the negotiations hit repeated snags," he said in a short address to the nation, explaining his decision to withdraw. He accused some parties of negotiating "purely for narrow interests."

Allawi's withdrawal a month after he was selected for the post plunges the country in more uncertainty at a critical time and as the country weathers troubled times, including ongoing anti-government protests and the constant threat of being ensnared by festering U.S.-Iran tensions.

Shortly after he spoke, two mortar shells landed in Iraq's Green Zone where the U.S. Embassy and government offices are located, without causing any injuries, two security officials said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.

Iraq on Sunday marked five months since a popular uprising against the country's corrupt political class erupted in Baghdad and southern provinces. Iraqis took to the streets in the thousands on Oct. 1 to decry rampant government corruption, unemployment and poor services. Demonstrators rejected Allawi's candidacy outright, saying he was the choice of the political elite and not the street.

Iraq also faces multiple challenges including on the economic and security fronts, and the most recent challenge of containing the coronavirus, with a failing health system and 19 confirmed cases so far.

Allawi's withdrawal came after he twice failed to secure a quorum for parliament to meet to vote on his Cabinet selection.

Allawi's cabinet formation process was beset with political turmoil as opposing factions threatened to withdraw support over the prime minister-designate's secretive selection of ministers -- unusual in the country's power-sharing system ‐ while in the streets of Baghdad, anti-government protesters camped in a central square for five months said they would reject his authority if early elections weren't held.
