Afghanistan’s ISIS-K has identified the suicide bomber behind last weeks gruesome suicide attack on a Shiite mosque, “Muhammad al-Uyghuri,” a member of China’s Uyghur population that the United States has in recent years claimed is being oppressed by Beijing.

The bombing in Afghanistan’s Kunduz province killed up to 80 people and injured 143 others and represents a drastic escalation in ISIS-K’s war on the Taliban’s rule.

Both the Taliban and even NATO ally Turkey are publicly accusing the CIA and US government of creating ISIS-K to destabilize the region.

It is rare for ISIS to identify the ethnicity of its suicide bombers. Experts believe the decision was made to recruit Uyghurs in China and inspire them to commit similar attacks.

According to a statement made by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu last Saturday, his nation holds credible intelligence showing that the CIA and US military were covertly transporting members of ISIS out of Syria and unleashing them in Afghanistan. It is believed that thousands of Chinese Uyghur jihadists, who developed a close relationship with Washington under former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, fought with and besides ISIS in Syria.

ISIS-K has officially declared war on the Taliban, citing its diplomatic overtures towards China and Iran. Ahmad Yasir, a Taliban spokesman in Qatar, has also said that his government has evidence that ISIS-K is an American intelligence operation and will be releasing it in the future. The Taliban has held that the ISIS-K problem is manageable because the group has no local contacts or popular support in Afghanistan.

Numerous governments have blamed the US for the sudden resurrection of ISIS in Central Asia. Last May, Iran provided reports and testimony, including from former US allies in the Afghan government, revealing that CIA aircraft was transporting jihadists out of Syria and Iraq and into Afghanistan.

The cruel acts this latest iteration of the terrorist group has performed in the last two years has made it such a pariah that even Al Qaeda has vowed to fight against them. Last year, ISIS-K was identified as the group that committed a suicide bombing targeting a maternity ward in Kabul that slaughtered dozens of mothers in labor and newborn babies.

A piece published yesterday by analyst Julia Kassem theorizes that ISIS-K is part of an American geopolitical operation that seeks to drag China into a costly Afghan quagmire. The large number of jihadists belonging to China’s Uyghur population, who come from the Xinjiang province, that have spread throughout Central Asia and the Middle East create a risk of terrorism against Chinese economic ambitions in the region.

Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Colin Powell, has written and spoken extensively about discussions inside the Pentagon regarding the use of the CIA to penetrate Xinjiang to destabilize China.

The goal would not only be to create chaos in the Chinese mainland, but also to encourage and support terrorist groups that target the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in neighboring countries. The Taliban has shown significant interest in joining the BRI since taking power.

Neo-conservative writers in America have started calling for a military re-entry into Afghanistan to address the supposed threat of ISIS-K. The Taliban is adamantly opposed to the idea.

Little is known about ISIS-K other than many of its members were interned in the US’ Bagram Air Base and released during the withdrawal.

This follows a pattern in the history of ISIS, which was reportedly created at Camp Bucca in Iraq under the supervision of US forces. The Pentagon has claimed that ISIS was created by inmates who radicalized one another at the camp under the noses of US personnel because they did not speak Arabic and had no idea what the inmates were talking about.

    Is it not obvious by now that the people who are perpetrating these insidious acts are the enemies of humanity? In 1200 AD they were doing white slavery in Eastern Europe. In 1700 AD they were working Cubans to death. They do not care of the colour of your skin. They do not care about your morals or your religion. They will not stop until they are stopped.

  3. “Neo-conservative writers in America have started calling for a military re-entry into Afghanistan”

    They should be more worried about not being hung by their necks from lamp posts along Pennsylvania Avenue.

    There is zero support for sacrificing more young lives to appease neo-conservative writers, who wouldn’t dream of risking their own kids lives in another foreign war.

    ISIS is US, not much question about that. The Afghans are on the ground there and would know what’s going on as would the Turks. Another hobgoblin to scare the American public with. That these anti-Western jihadis are working on behalf of US policy is a head scratcher. They don’t care where their support is coming from and the ulterior motives involved? The suicide bomber was identified but how do we know that’s even true? A lot of Taliban were also killed besides the US Marines involved. The driver may not have been a suicide but told to drive over and report what he sees and then had the car blown up by remote control. Another martyr. If the media reports it don’t believe a word of it.

    These Zionist and Deep State hacks are the worst F*UPs in history. Everything they touch turns cancerous. All they can due is go around creating chaos, anarchy and destruction, wither globally or domestically. It takes them a relatively short span of time to destroy what sane and civilized people built up over centuries. Demon ((Jews)) and Zoglodytes hiding behind Judaism, Christians, Muslims, liberals, conservatives… past time to turn their demoniac lights out.

    perhaps US and its “allies” (ie nobody in particular)
    should follow advice of its own Taliban (neocons)
    and re-enter Afghanistan to ally itself with Taliban to fight ISIS-K

  9. @anonymous

    Your’e right. After this covid fuckup , believe the opposition.

  10. Nope, not down with hawkish behavior – be it on behalf of Taiwan, Izunreal, or any other place.

    “This follows a pattern in the history of ISIS, which was reportedly created at Camp Bucca ….at the camp under the noses of US personnel because they did not speak Arabic and had no idea what the inmates were talking about.”

    Explanation offered by Pentagon is false and was construed before the prison itself was built. Fucking American can belieive that their military and intelligence can hear whats going in the bathroom of Xi of China and can locate by sateelite the aluminium tube of Sadddam ,can belive the jihadist can send signal if tried in civilisn courts, but cant anticipate grooming by jihadist in prison or cant identify thousands of white Toyota van streaming outof the desert to Syria nor can America form alliance with ISIS despite forming alliances with desth squad in Latin America, Vietnam, with left over Nazi after WW2 ,with thuggush murderers like Batista, Pinochet, with militaries of W Africa , Indonesia and Guatamala.

    NYTimes swallowed it because thats is in the job description of the warmonger columnists who literaaly live there to slant,embellish,curate and print the expected disinformation. The cytoplasmic flow of the disinformation ridden contents from one neuron to the next despite being blocks or miles apart is one of the great achievment of thr Pentagon- deep state.

  13. Turkey are being hypocrites. All governments in Asia know Turkey was giving away passports to Uighurs who fled China and placed many thousands of them as a mercenary army to fight in Syria. That is why Turkey was the only nation to voice criticism on China over the Uighurs. China basically cut off his supply of new recruits. But in any event there should be no surprise.. The US delisted the ETIM/TIP Uighur jihadi group from the terror list claiming they dont exist. Well it ismwell known they trained with ISIS in Afghanistan as their own promotional videos show. So maybe Pompeo told a half truth. Maybe they all just folded in with ISIS since China stymied them.

  14. anon[557] • Disclaimer says:

    As I’ve been saying. The US is not leaving Afghanistan, but going back underground as during the Mujaheddin days.

    – Weapons were left behind for this reason
    – “Civilians” left in Afghanistan are Blackwater types left behind for this reason
    – ISIS-K is the CIA’s newest version of al-Qaeda and ISIS designed for terror against China and Iran.
    – The Pentagon abandoned the nation building aspect. That is all. They are inviting China in for “nation building” as the next empire lured into the grave.

    The defeat of the Ottoman Empire by British imperialism in World War One, left three distinct authorities in the Arabian peninsula: Sharif of Hijaz: Hussain bin Ali of Hijaz (in the west), Ibn Rashid of Ha’il (in the north) and Emir Ibn Saud of Najd (in the east) and his religiously fanatical followers, the Wahhabis.

    Ibn Saud had entered the war early in January 1915 on the side of the British, but was quickly defeated and his British handler, William Shakespear was killed by the Ottoman Empire’s ally Ibn Rashid. This defeat greatly hampered Ibn Saud’s utility to the Empire and left him militarily hamstrung for a year.[1] The Sharif contributed the most to the Ottoman Empire’s defeat by switching allegiances and leading the so-called ‘Arab Revolt’ in June 1916 which removed the Turkish presence from Arabia. He was convinced to totally alter his position because the British had strongly led him to believe, via correspondence with Henry McMahon, the British High Commissioner in Egypt, that a unified Arab country from Gaza to the Persian Gulf will be established with the defeat of the Turks. The letters exchanged between Sharif Hussain and Henry McMahon are known as the McMahon-Hussain Correspondence……..

    Lawrence made the time to visit other leaders in the Arabian peninsula and informed them that they if they don’t tow the British line and avoid entering into an alliance with the Sharif, the Empire will unleash Ibn Saud and his Wahhabis who after all is at Britain’s ‘beck and call’.[6]

    Churchill informed Abdullah that he should persuade “his father to accept the Palestine mandate and sign a treaty to such effect,” if not “the British would unleash Ibn Saud against Hijaz.”[7] In the meantime the British were planning to unleash Ibn Saud on the ruler of Ha’il, Ibn Rashid.
    Ta’if, Ibn Saud’s Wahhabis committed their customary massacres, slaughtering women and children as well as going into mosques and killing traditional Islamic scholars.[18]

    Killing of religious leaders,devout muslims,bombing of mosques have a history that has its roots deeply anchored to the history of British Parliamentarian proceedings and to the DNA of Anglo Zionism body.

    This is the China – savvy Jew in question ?

  17. @anon

    The difference with the mujahadeen days is now those same people for the most part hate America because of the past 20 years. That is why the Taliban was able to just waltz back in..

    China’s dealings with Afghanistan mostly go through Pakistan. China doesn’t do “nation building”.

    ISIS was/is a CIA creation, same as Al Qaeda, and the many variant offshoots.

    [Similar to Convid variants, just when you think you’re safe …]

    AQ/ISIS/et al. is CIA’s American Express card, they are everywhere the CIA wants to be.

    Funny thing about ISIS, shortly before ISIS popped up as the terror group du jour, Verizon and SoftBank had created a smartphone based electronic payment system, and used the name of an Egyptian goddess, ISIS, who was the wife of the God of the Underworld, as the brand name. Which to me was already a spooky name for a payment system.

    Next thing you know the jihadi group ISIS pops up and the death of the Verizon/Softbank creation. Can’t remember if they rebranded it or gave up. Competing against Apple Pay may be ill advised.

    A group of Islamic radical jihadis are referred to using an acronym that is the name of that Egyptian goddess.

    What Would Muhammad ibn Abdullah Say?

  19. @beavertales

    Donald Rumsfeld would disagree with you 101%. Donald stated that Taliban government in Afghanistan ” are terrorists and USA does not negotiate with terrorists” But 20 years later and 2 Trillion spent –Taliban now governing Afghanistan.

    Gordon G Chang —he must be happy reading about these cold blooded killers. Gordon G Chang however is a LOSER—I read his bullshit on DailyBeast and Fox and for the love of Christ –the moron has been wrong on each and every article this clown pens.
