Beitrag Afghanistan Antworten mit Zitat
In Afghanistan hast wirklich Pech gehabt, wenn in eine arme, verschuldete Familie geboren wirst. Der Vater des 8-jährigen Ibrahim hat Schulden und muss 1000 Ziegelsteine pro Tag herstellen, um seine Familie annähernd ernähren zu können (der jüngste "Arbeiter" der Baustelle ist 3 Jahre alt). Dabei muss die ganze Familie helfen, sonst gibt's nicht mehr zu essen. Die ganzen verblödeten Menschenrechtsheinis möchten endlich ein Gesetz, das Kinderarbeit konsequent verbietet. Die Tatsache hingegen, dass die Ausbeutung 11 Stunden am Tag, 6 Tage die Woche einer Familie von Habenichtsen nicht mal mehr reicht, um annähernd die Kosten für ihre Reproduktion zu zahlen, ist ihnen kein Wort wert. Sehr guter Artikel, halt auf Französisch: http://www.liberation.fr/monde/2014/01/06/je-ferai-des-briques-toute-ma-vie_970919

Beitrag Krieg und Opium Antworten mit Zitat
Im "sicheren Herkunftsland" Afghanistan hat der Krieg um die Handelsroute von Heroin eigentlich nie aufgehört:

Zitat:
Helmand, the country’s largest province, is a hub of opium production and offers a strategic advantage because of its location on the border with Pakistan, where the Taliban leadership council is based. Control of the area would give the militants supremacy in the drug business and a sanctuary from which to fight the central government.

The insurgents kept their pressure on Helmand for most of the fighting season this year. When NATO troops declared combat over and made the transition to a smaller training and advising mission, the Afghan government was sidetracked by the surprise intensity of fighting in the north of the country. As Kunduz city fell and several other urban centers in the north came under fire, resources had to be transferred to meet the insurgency’s shift in geographical focus.

But in recent months, the Taliban have once again mounted a bold offensive across Helmand, overrunning or contesting several districts that had been cleared of their presence, though only after many casualties. The Taliban control the districts of Musa Qala, Nawzad, Baghran, and Disho, according to Mohammad Karim Attal, the chief of the Helmand Provincial council. The districts of Sangin, Marja, Khanishin, Nad Ali, and Kajaki have also experienced sustained fighting.

Beitrag 10-jährig, Kriegsheld Antworten mit Zitat
News aus dem "sicheren Herkunftsland": Es gibt immer noch "Helden"...

Zitat:
The Afghan government declared Wasil Ahmad a hero for leading a militia’s defense against a Taliban siege last year, parading him in front of cameras in a borrowed police uniform too big for him. On Monday, the Taliban triumphantly announced that they had assassinated him with two bullets to the head.

Wasil Ahmad was 10 years old.

He was gunned down in Tirin Kot city, the capital of southern Oruzgan Province, just a few months after leaving militia life and enrolling in school as a fourth grader.

Wasil’s story is a painful example of how child combatants continue to be a part of life in Afghanistan, both in the ranks of pro-government forces and among the Taliban insurgents.

Beitrag Opium für das Volk und die Regierung Antworten mit Zitat
Die afghanische Wirtschaft kommt langsam aber sicher wieder in Schwung:

Zitat:
The United States spent more than $7 billion in the past 14 years to fight the runaway poppy production that has made Afghan opium the world’s biggest brand. Tens of billions more went to governance programs to stem corruption and train a credible police force. Countless more dollars and thousands of lives were lost on the main thrust of the war: to put the Afghan government in charge of district centers and to instill rule of law.

But here in one of the few corners of Helmand Province that is peaceful and in firm government control, the green stalks and swollen bulbs of opium were growing thick and high within eyeshot of official buildings during the past poppy season — signs of a local narco-state administered directly by government officials.

Beitrag Russland will nicht mehr Antworten mit Zitat
Russland will die Amerikaner in Afghanistan künftig "einfach machen lassen":

Zitat:
For all the conflicts in the world in which Washington is at odds with Moscow, the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan has been one area where the Obama administration’s interests and Russia’s concerns coincide.

Disputes over the wars in Ukraine and Syria had not stopped the governments from cooperating on counternarcotics and securing military supply lines. But after initial success on those fronts, Russia now seems to be disengaging with both the United States and the American-backed Afghan government.

On an old Cold War battlefield where Russia fought a nearly decade-long war against United States-supplied fighters, Moscow has a new strategy: the cold shoulder.

“We won’t join the useless events, and we’ve already told the Americans,” President Vladimir V. Putin’s envoy to Afghanistan, Zamir N. Kabulov, told Russian state news media this month. Russia, he said, would sit out any talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government in Kabul, backed by the United States, Pakistan and China.

Beitrag Krieg und Opium Antworten mit Zitat
Der Provinz Helmand ist begehrt:

Zitat:
When mujahedeen guerrillas captured this southern provincial capital in 1993, Gen. Abdul Jabar Qahraman was the Afghan government commander on the last flight out, surrendering the city.

In a resonant twist more than two decades later, Mr. Qahraman is again the face of the Afghan government here as an insurgency threatens to overrun his post.

This time, it is the Taliban at the city gates. The insurgents are firmly entrenched in a suburb of the provincial capital, Lashkar Gah, and separated from the seat of government by only the calm waters of the Helmand River. They control or contest at least 10 of the 14 districts in Helmand Province, Afghanistan’s largest in both size and opium production.

Beitrag Hekmatyars nie endender Krieg Antworten mit Zitat
Zwar schon älter, aber interessanter Artikel über den wohl durchgeknalltesten Warlord Afghanistans, der jedoch in den 1980er Jahren der Favorit des pakistanischen Geheimdienstes ISI war:

Zitat:
But one prominent visiting commander, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, refused to see the US president, despite reportedly receiving a hefty share of the roughly $200m that the CIA funnelled annually to Afghan guerrillas for defeating the invading Red Army. [...]

Many of the US allies from the time of jihad have subsequently turned against the US - bin Laden being the most prominent.

Another of the visiting leaders to Washington that year, the late Mawlawi Yunus Khalis, is considered a spiritual father to the Taliban. His claim to fame was inviting Reagan to convert to Islam from the podium of the White House.

But one of the most feared US enemies today, Jalaluddin Haqanni of the so-called Haqqani Network, was actually a very cooperative ally in the 1980s.

When a girl's school for Afghan refugees was closed down in Peshawar and the guard was shot dead, most likely by elements close to Hekmatyar, Malinowski says, it was Haqqani who helped them reopen it. [...]

"The ISI funnelled most of the cash to Hekmatyar, who was their favourite," Malinowski says, adding that the Pakistani agency was grooming Hekmatyar to lead post-Soviet Afghanistan. "Every time I met others, they would always complain about Hekmatyar getting most of the aid."

http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2012/01/201212614551208744.html


Weil er am meisten Russen töte, bekomme er am meisten Geld, sagten ISI und CIA damals, da sind sich aber nicht alle wirklich einig, und sein Krieg war nicht immer ganz durchschaubar:

Zitat:
One of the most controversial of the mujahideen commanders, he has been accused of spending "more time fighting other Mujahideen than killing Soviets." [...]

At various times, he has both fought against and allied himself with almost every other group in Afghanistan.

Beitrag Gute Opiumernte zu erwarten Antworten mit Zitat
Die Opiumernte dient den Taliban auch zur Rekrutierung:

Zitat:
“The poppy harvest is a good time for the Taliban to interact with new faces — best time for new recruitment,” said Bashir Ahmad Shakir, the head of security committee at the Helmand provincial council.

Abdul Jabar Qahraman, the Afghan government’s representative in charge of the fighting in Helmand, said the Taliban were campaigning “24-7” to recruit from the pool of 15,000 laborers, mostly jobless young people, who arrived in Helmand for the harvest season. He said the government arrested some 700 of the laborers to disrupt the harvesting, but the men were released a few days later except for a small number suspected of being Taliban members.

Beitrag Comeback von Hekmatyar? Antworten mit Zitat
Hekmatyar soll Friedensverhandlungen mit der Regierung führen:

Zitat:
Now, with his Hezb-i-Islami militant group nearly eclipsed by the Taliban, Mr. Hekmatyar, 68, is once again working a deal — this time to formally reconcile with the Afghan government for the first time since the end of the country’s civil war.

After years of failed overtures, representatives of Mr. Hekmatyar, whose whereabouts is unknown, are now said to be finalizing a peace agreement with the struggling government of President Ashraf Ghani, according to representatives from both sides. If signed, the agreement would allow Mr. Hekmatyar to return to Kabul for the first time since 1996. That was when the Taliban pushed him out of power after he had negotiated a deal to become prime minister in return for ending his insurgency against the government.

Beitrag Marmor und Taliban Antworten mit Zitat
Kuriose Funktionsweise der Marmorindustrie in Afghanistan:

Zitat:
The Afghan government is indirectly but knowingly funnelling money to the Taliban through the country’s lucrative marble business, the Guardian has learned. Afghanistan’s vast mineral deposits, which under different circumstances could fund development, instead nourish some of the worst ills plaguing the war-torn nation: corruption, smuggling and a militant insurgency.

In Helmand province, large marble reserves are in areas long under Taliban control. The government, largely unable to extract marble on its own and intent on maintaining an embryonic marble industry, buys the stone from private companies, who in turn pay the Taliban ample taxes and for extraction rights.

As a result, the government adds to a revenue stream into the militant group’s coffers worth millions of dollars each year. In 2014, a UN monitoring team estimated that at least two-thirds of the $15m (£10m) made on Helmand marble each year went to the Taliban.

Beitrag Friedhof von Kabul Antworten mit Zitat
In Kabul ist der Friedhof ein Wirtschaftsfaktor:

Zitat:
The children look for fun where they can, but their business is serious. It puts food on their families’ tables. They make about 10 afghanis for each small bucket they pour — the price of a loaf of bread, about 15 cents. On lucky days, they will get much more in tips, some as big as $10 or even $20, forever marking that grave as auspicious, distinct in their memory.

They have come to rely on a harsh reality of Afghan life: After decades of war and staggeringly frequent tragedy, more and more Afghan families have some business or another in Kabul’s cemeteries, where an ever-larger slice of everyday life is now centered.

Beitrag Neuer Anführer der Taliban Antworten mit Zitat
Die NYT zum neuen Anführer der Taliban:

Zitat:
Many view him as lacking the grip and influence that his predecessor, Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansour, had amassed before being killed in an American drone strike in May. Mullah Mansour’s tenure was marked by purges and open rebellion that have receded into the background.

Despite that, some commanders have refused to pledge allegiance to Mawlawi — a title reserved for Islamic scholars — Haibatullah, according to interviews with Taliban commanders and officials.

From the first days of the hasty leadership meetings that elevated Mawlawi Haibatullah, it was clear that the Taliban’s decision-making power was returning to the insurgency’s senior council based in Quetta, Pakistan — a politburo of about two dozen clerics and commanders split between the older generation that founded the Taliban and newer members who were empowered more recently.

Beitrag Taliban und ISI Antworten mit Zitat
Der pakistanische Geheimdienst scheint die Taliban weiterhin fleissig zu unterstützen:

Zitat:
The former head of Afghanistan's main intelligence agency released documents on Thursday which he said showed that Pakistani intelligence services helped leaders of the Taliban and the feared Haqqani network in 2014 and 2015.

Rahmatullah Nabil stepped down from the National Directorate of Security (NDS) in December last year after opposing Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's efforts to improve relations with Pakistan and include Islamabad in peace talks with the Taliban.

Nabil told a group of journalists in Kabul that he had released the documents to provide concrete evidence of Pakistan's collusion with the Taliban and the associated Haqqani group, which has been blamed for a series of kidnappings and high profile suicide bombings in the capital.

Beitrag Hazaras in Syrien Antworten mit Zitat
Ein Artikel über Hazaras in Syrien:

Zitat:
Thousands of Afghans, almost all of them Shiite Muslims from the Hazara ethnic minority, have fought in Syria in the past few years, serving in brigades supporting the government of President Bashar al-Assad, according to their relatives and commanders in Syria. Most of the Afghan men are recruited or drawn from the Afghan diaspora within Iran, a crucial ally of the Assad government. But more and more of the men are coming directly from Afghanistan in the past year, in part because of the increasingly dire state of the Afghan economy, relatives and officials here say.

The promise of urgently needed salaries — or at least compensation for hardship or death, often paid by the Iranian government — has done little to comfort the families left behind, or to ease their regret at the misery that forced their sons to flee in the first place.

Beitrag Helmand Antworten mit Zitat
Im "sicheren Herkunftsland" Afghanistan droht Lashkar Gah, von den Taliban überrennt zu werden:

Zitat:
The entire area held by government forces in Helmand has shrunk in recent months. Four districts — including Musa Qala and Nawzad — that were the focus of thousands of American and coalition troops during the 2010 surge are under Taliban control. Frequent airstrikes and reinforcements are required to keep many of the other 10 districts, some only nominally in government control, from falling.

While Afghan officials insist that Lashkar Gah will not be allowed to fall, their helter-skelter strategy seems unsustainable against an enemy that has proved to be mobile and resilient. Defending the district centers that have not fallen to the Taliban has required a delegation of senior generals and officials sent from Kabul to shuttle back and forth to monitor developments.

Beitrag Frieden mit Hekmatyar Antworten mit Zitat
Was in den 1980ern geschah, wird wieder mal nicht erwähnt, aber is' ja auch Frieden jetzt:

Zitat:
Not only will Zarif face the return of Hekmatyar. He and other taxpayers will also help fund the insurgent leader’s security. The bill for residences, vehicles and guards for Hezb-i-Islami leadership have been reported to be as high as $4m (£3m).

Hekmatyar, who has been in hiding since 1997, has not yet returned to the capital. Neither he nor the country’s president, Ashraf Ghani, were present at the signing ceremony. Instead, the deal was inked by national security adviser Hanif Atmar, head of the High Peace Council Pir Sayed Ahmad Gailani and a Hezb-i-Islami delegation led by senior member Mohammad Amin Karim.

Beitrag Taliban Antworten mit Zitat
Die Taliban kontrollieren wohl de facto etwa 1/4 des Landes:

Zitat:
“We believe the Afghans control or heavily influence 68 to 70 percent of the population,” Nicholson told reporters at a Pentagon press briefing today. “We believe the enemy control or influence about 10 percent of the population. And then the balance, roughly a quarter, is in play, is contested.”

“This is a positive in the sense of the majority of the population is under control of the government forces and this primarily the population centers, and so on, and the enemy is primarily in more rural areas that have less impact on the future of the country,” Nicholson continued.

While Nicholson downplayed the importance of the Taliban’s presence in rural Afghanistan, the Taliban uses the rural areas to raise funds, recruit and train fighters, and launch attacks on population centers. Additionally, Taliban allies such as al Qaeda run training camps and operate bases in areas under Taliban control.

Nicholson described press reporting on Taliban offensives, including the group’s recent operations that threatened to overrun the provincial capitals of Kunduz, Helmand, and Uruzgan, as “exaggerated reports about how dire the security situation is.” These reports, Nicholson claimed, force the Afghan government to respond.

Beitrag Helmand Antworten mit Zitat
Gute Reportage aus der umkämpften Region Helmand:

Zitat:
In Bolan, where Abdul Hakim’s family waits for him, the front line is only about three miles away. Worried that government forces might not be able to repel a Taliban assault on the city, the United States has hit Helmand province with about 40 airstrikes since late July and deployed more than 100 U.S. soldiers to Lashkar Gah.

Whatever they’re doing, it doesn’t seem to be working. Fighting in Helmand always ebbs and flows — but never since 2001 have the Taliban been able to surround Lashkar Gah like this. The Taliban have also almost completely captured several districts in the province that have been firmly in government hands for a decade or more.

The Taliban’s gains in Helmand mirror their progress elsewhere in the country. In the first half of 2016, the Afghan government lost control of almost 5 percent of its territory, according to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), a U.S. government watchdog. Its forces now control 65.6 percent of districts throughout the country — meaning they lost control of 19 districts in a few short months. Recently, the largest Afghan news channel, Tolo News, reported that insurgent attacks in Afghanistan had increased 28 percent from June to July.

Beitrag Stimmen aus dem Krieg Antworten mit Zitat
In Afghanistan beurteilt man das mit dem "sicheren Herkunftsland" etwas anders:

Zitat:
I graduated from the teacher training institute a couple months ago, but I was not able to work in my own field, as all schools in our area are closed. ... I work as a farmer on plots that don’t belong to us. ...

Now an Afghan is in charge of ISIS here. The behavior of ISIS members has changed: They are not making problems for us, they are not beating us. But still, ISIS has banned using phones, smoking, cutting your beard and using chewing tobacco. If they see you doing so, they will imprison you for 10 days, and they will take a guarantee from you. If they arrest you for doing the same thing again, they will punish you much harder.

The main bazaar in Achin district — the Shadal Bazaar — and other bazaars here are shut. We are bringing in a small amount of food and other things from Marko and Ghanikhel areas of Shinwari district, because government is not allowing us to bring in large amounts. They say you are supplying this for ISIS.

Living here is very hard — we always live with fear. But we don’t have any other place to go, we cannot afford to rent a house somewhere else.

Beitrag Taliban auf dem Vormarsch Antworten mit Zitat
Die Taliban verstärken ihre Angriffe:

Zitat:
From March to August, about 4,500 Afghan soldiers and police were killed and more than 8,000 wounded, according to information provided by a senior Afghan official who had seen the tallies, but like others spoke on condition of anonymity to share sensitive information. In August, the police and the army sustained about 2,800 casualties, more than a third of them fatal.

Beyond that, the inability to replace the fallen has raised particular alarm among the top ranks of the Afghan government as well as its Western backers, including the United States.

For months now, the police and the army have failed to achieve recruitment goals. While the army still maintains a marginal positive balance of recruitment over losses, the police seem in trouble.

Beitrag Propaganda der Taliban Antworten mit Zitat
Auch die Taliban produzieren nun immer mehr Videos:

Zitat:
Increasingly, the Taliban — who, when they controlled the government, banned television and jailed people for photography — rely on their front-line fighters not only to gain territory and strike at the Afghan security forces, but also to record the moment and share it.

It appears that they are drawing inspiration from the Islamic State’s propaganda-first strategy. In the past, the Taliban released elaborate videos of suicide bombings long after the fact, their material falling far short of the Islamic State’s slick production values. Recently, though, they have been aiming for close-to-real-time updates and have greatly improved on quality. A few days ago, the insurgents released footage filmed by drone-mounted cameras of a suicide car bomb targeting the Nawa district center in Helmand Province.

Beitrag Kontrolle von Gebieten Antworten mit Zitat
Die Taliban scheinen deutlich mehr Gebiete zu kontrollieren als die USA behaupten:

Zitat:
The Long War Journal believes that the US military’s assessment of the state of play in Afghanistan’s districts is flawed. A study by The Long War Journal estimates the Taliban controls 42 Afghan districts and contests (or influences) another 55. [Note, USFOR-A’s definition of “influence” matches that of LWJ‘s definition of “contested.” The term “influenced/contested” will be used for clarity to describe these districts. LWJ does not assess districts that are defined by USFOR-A as “contested,” which means neither the Taliban or Afghan government hold sway.]

The number of Taliban controlled and influenced/contested districts has risen from 70 in October 2015 to 97 this month.

Districts under Taliban command are typically being administered by the group, or the group controls the district center. Additionally, districts where the district center frequently changes hands are considered Taliban-controlled. In influenced/contested districts, the Taliban dominates all of the areas of a district except the administrative center.

Beitrag Rückkehr afghanischer Flüchtlinge Antworten mit Zitat
Das Land, welches am meisten afghanische Flüchtlinge aufnimmt? Afghanistan:

Zitat:
There is one country in the world that is now taking in more Afghan migrants than all the countries in Europe and South Asia put together this year.

That would be Afghanistan itself.

By the end of the year, aid officials here expect some 1.5 million migrants to return to Afghanistan — many of them forcibly, and including some officially registered as refugees.

Some will come from Europe, which has recently signed a deal with Afghanistan to return tens of thousands of migrants who were not granted asylum. A far larger number are being forced back by Iran and, particularly, Pakistan, where the United Nations says there are 1.3 million registered Afghan refugees and an additional 700,000 undocumented Afghans.

Beitrag "Sicherheitskrise" Antworten mit Zitat
Die Taliban kontrollieren ziemlich sicher mehr:

Zitat:
As intense Taliban offensives have taken large portions of territory out of the Afghan government’s hands, those spaces have become the stage for a resurgence of regional and international militant groups. That is despite the extended presence of nearly 10,000 American troops in the country, tasked with performing counterterrorism operations and supporting the Afghan forces that are bearing the brunt of the fighting.

Gen. Joseph L. Votel, the chief of the United States Central Command, said the Afghan government now controls only about 60 percent of the country, the Taliban hold sway over about 10 percent, and the remainder is contested. Which group or groups fill those voids of increasing ungoverned territory in Afghanistan “is something we’ll have to contend with,” he said.

Beitrag Alltag in Kundus Antworten mit Zitat
Ein Bäcker und ein Totengräber zum Alltag in Kundus:

Zitat:
Allah Mohammed, 37, helps sustain life, baking bread all day in the small oven of his corner shop in Kunduz city. Part of his bakery’s ceiling remains caved in where it was hit by a rocket during the latest Taliban siege.

In another corner of the city, Abdul Rassoul, 65, comes in after life has gone. He digs graves and then waters the trees that dot the cemetery. He also chases away addicts trying to steal a grave railing, or shepherd boys whose herds stumble on the graves — pelting them with rocks and cursing them.

Both men wake up around 3 a.m. when the rest of Kunduz’s residents are fast asleep, barring just a few.

Their everyday lives are woven into a larger pattern of hardship and resilience in the city. The bullet holes in the walls after each siege — two Taliban takeovers in just over a year — are reminders that it could easily happen again, and most likely will. So the people of Kunduz try to shrug it off as just another disruption in a long stream of them.

Beitrag Jungfräulichkeitstests Antworten mit Zitat
Wenn man in Afghanistan als Frau fast von einem Mob gelyncht wird, muss man danach den Bullen erst einmal seine Jungfräulichkeit beweisen:

Zitat:
The teenage girl had barely survived an attempted mob lynching in Kabul. The police responded by forcing her to undergo a virginity examination.

An unproved accusation of adultery had sent the mob chasing the girl and the young man she had been linked to, and the crowd set fire to the car in which the two were found last July in west Kabul. They barely escaped, but the police seemed more concerned about the mob’s accusation. They chased her down and arrested her hours later.

“Since there was suspicion of sexual relationship, the police sent the girl to forensic medical for virginity test,” Fraidoon Obaidi, chief of the Kabul Police Criminal Investigation Department, said after her arrest.

Beitrag Steuern der Taliban Antworten mit Zitat
In einigen Regionen des Landes sind die Taliban de facto der Staat:

Zitat:
The diversification of the revenue collection system, in the face of a central government largely dependent on Western donations and hobbled by corruption, has raised fears that the balance of the war could tilt even further in the year ahead, and that the insurgency is becoming more entrenched and acting as a shadow government in parts of the countryside.

“What it suggests, essentially, is that the group is becoming more efficient in systematically taxing the areas they either control or have a lot of influence on,” said Timor Sharan, senior analyst for Afghanistan at the International Crisis Group, a research institute. “Efficiency of taxation is quite significant in terms of sustaining the group for a long time.”

In addition to collecting electricity bills from thousands of homes in provinces such as Kunduz and Helmand, the insurgents levy taxes on potato harvests, flour mills, teachers’ salaries, marriage ceremonies, and fuel and vegetable trucks crossing their checkpoints.

Beitrag Taliban machen Herkunftsland "sicher" Antworten mit Zitat
Immer näher bei Kabul:

Zitat:
Taliban fighters were shown raising the white banner of the jihadist group over the district center. The group also claimed to seize large quantities of weapons and ammunition during the assault.

The Taliban took control of Waghaz on May 22, the same day it assaulted areas in the capital of Ghazni City. The Taliban also bombed the governor’s compound during the fighting.

The Taliban now claims to control five of Ghazni’s 18 districts (Nawa, Khogyani, Rasheedan, Waghaz, and Zana Khan), and controls 60 percent or more of nine other districts. Only three districts (Nawar, Ajiristan, and Malistan) are fully under government control. FDD’s Long War Journal has assessed the Taliban’s claims of territorial control to be credible.

Afghan forces have ceded control of some rural districts to the Taliban, excusing the districts as strategically unimportant. The Taliban has instead used these districts as bases to attack Afghan forces in more populous districts. The US military estimates that the Taliban now controls or contests 40 percent of Afghanistan’s districts, while the Taliban claims the number is closer to 50 percent.

Beitrag Ghor Antworten mit Zitat
In der Provinz Ghor gehört Gewalt gegen Frauen zum Alltag:

Zitat:
“There is no value for women there,” Ms. Koofi added. “It is as if she deserves to die.”

With a population of over 700,000 and located in west-central Afghanistan, Ghor is considered one of the most deprived provinces of the country. It has received little government attention over the years, and the rule of law is almost nonexistent in certain parts of the territory. Ghor also shares borders with some of the most violent provinces with strong Taliban presence, making it vulnerable to the insurgency.

Some of the cases in Ghor briefly shock the nation before fading into its long history of abuse.

Beitrag Helmand Antworten mit Zitat
Die Situation in dieser Provinz ist ziemlich düster:

Zitat:
Her family said she accidentally shot herself in the face when she came across a Kalashnikov hidden under some blankets while cleaning.

In town – Helmand’s provincial capital – the story was regarded with suspicion, if not surprise. Salima died 10 days before an arranged marriage, but nobody asked any questions: it would be improper to scrutinise a woman’s death.

Her body was lowered into the hole, wrapped in a thin, black shroud. She had lived unseen, and was buried by strangers.

For more than 15 years, women’s empowerment has been claimed as a central pillar of western efforts in Afghanistan. Yet in Helmand, adult women are almost entirely invisible, even in the city. They are the property of their family, and few are able to work or seek higher education, independent medical care or justice.

Beitrag Heroin Antworten mit Zitat
Die Taliban haben in der Zwischenzeit entdeckt, dass sich mit Heroin mehr Kohle machen lässt als mit Rohopium:

Zitat:
For years, most of the harvest would be smuggled out in the form of bulky opium syrup that was refined in other countries. But now, Afghan and Western officials estimate that half, if not more, of Afghan opium is getting some level of processing in the country, either into morphine or heroin with varying degrees of purity.

The refining makes the drug much easier to smuggle out into the supply lines to the West. And it is vastly increasing the profits for the Taliban, for whom the drug trade makes up at least 60 percent of their income, according to Afghan and Western officials.

Beitrag Waffenstillstand Antworten mit Zitat
Sehr kuriose Situation in den letzten Tagen: Sowohl die Soldaten als auch die niederen Ränge der Taliban haben sehr offen ihre Kriegsmüdigkeit zur Schau gestellt:

Zitat:
For the Taliban, such enthusiasm among its foot soldiers for a brief period of normalcy directly contradicted a narrative the insurgent leaders often push: that their forces are ready to drag this war out as long as it takes.

Their fighters, and even midlevel commanders, not only widely spoke of how tired they are of the war, but continued to visit the cities — and appeared to enjoy their visits — on Sunday, despite clear orders from their leadership to avoid such visits after the bloody attack on Saturday.

Voice messages attributed to Taliban leaders, sent to the phones of their fighters and shared with a New York Times reporter, showed a sense of anger at how easily their side had mingled with Afghan government forces, and their excess in posing for selfies.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/17/world/asia/afghanistan-bombing-taliban-isis.html


Einen Friedensmarsch hat es wohl in der Geschichte Afghanistans ebenfalls noch nie gegeben:

Zitat:
They come from all walks of life, ages 17 to 65. Among them is a high school student who went home to complete his final exams before rejoining the others; a poet who still carries in his chest one of the four bullets he was shot with; a bodybuilding champion who abandoned his gym and has lost 20 pounds of muscle on the journey. They are day laborers, farmers, retired army officers, a polio victim on crutches, a mechanic who was robbed of his sight by war.

Afghanistan’s most striking grass-roots movement for peace in recent years started with just eight people. I started watching their movement then, when it was a hunger strike born out of pain and outrage at a suicide bombing that killed and wounded dozens in Helmand Province. A group of young men pitched a protest tent next to the carnage. Their blood had become cheap — too cheap, they said. For too long, they had been dying in silence.

Beitrag Taliban überrennen Ghazni Antworten mit Zitat
Die Taliban scheinen kurz davor zu stehen, die Stadt im Südosten einzunehmen:

Zitat:
More than 100 police officers and soldiers have been killed in the southeastern Afghan city of Ghazni in three days, a hospital official said on Sunday, as fighting continued in the strategic city, where Taliban insurgents have seized control of most neighborhoods.

The insurgents have also begun spreading into districts outside Ghazni city, two of which fell to them overnight, according to reports from local residents and Afghan officials.

Baz Mohammad Hemat, the director of the Ghazni Hospital, said by telephone that 113 bodies had been taken to the hospital, along with 142 wounded, most of them in uniform.

“We’re running out of hospital rooms; we are using corridors and available space everywhere,” he said. “Fighting is quite close to the hospital. The situation is really bad here. We’re receiving more and more wounded and dead every hour.”
