Misconceptions about Afghan Crisis by the West

The seemingly endless war by NATO to beat Talibans  has ended  with hurried withdrawal of US and allied troops from Afghanistan. The Taliban now control almost the entire Afghanistan and have even announced their interim government. But despite the victory of Taliban, the West has unleashed a massive media campaign about future of Afghanistan and casting doubts over Taliban's ability to handle the affairs. 

Ahmad M Siddiqi of Al Jazeerah has highlighted four misconceptions of the West about Taliban. All of these seemingly look rather premature and a move to downplay the Taliban who contested the NATO troops for tow decades and finally made them run.





Here are the four misconceptions that West is seemingly worried about as per Siddiqi:
  • Al Qadea coming back?
  • Taliban are fragmented
  • The Taliban triumphed due to foreign support
  • The US withdrawal too soon.
Please read the full report for details of these misconceptions

Israel and Hamas agree Gaza ceasefire



Finally after 11 days of intense hostilities that cost 232 Palestinians in Gaza and 12 lives in Israel, there is an announcement of  a ceasefire by Israel and Hamas, as reported by Al Jazeera on 21 May 2021

Israel’s security cabinet on Thursday said it voted unanimously in favour of a “mutual and unconditional” Gaza truce proposed by mediator Egypt, but added that the hour of implementation had yet to be agreed upon.





The truce is likely to bring an end some of the fiercest fighting since 2014, which has caused widespread destruction in Gaza and halted much of daily life in Israel.

Joe Biden moving his suitcases to White House


The race to White House finally ends with Joe Biden moving his suitcases to the White House after ousting the sitting US president Donald Trump with a vast majority of 290:214.

There seemed to be a stale mate after the results were announced as 248:224. And the entire world was watching over the TV screens for a final countdown, not really keeping heir fingers crossed as the trends were in favours of Biden. However, surprisingly, despite Trump's rather erratic behaviour as the president, the elections were almost closely and hotly contested and US citizens showed their love for Trump.





As for the Vice President, it is Kamala Harris, the first woman, and the first black and Asian American, to be vice-president-elect. 

With the new people in the White House, let us hope the decades old unrest crated by US by invading dozens of countries across the world comes to an end and that peace finally prevails.
