A Lovely Gang

If even a stopped clock is right twice a day, even a wise tweeter- as this fellow is- can be palpably wrong once in a while:


This is merely one reason recognition is currently inconceivable:


It's not as if the Taliban are opposed to all protest marches. Some they zealously guard.


Afghan women at a pro-Taliban protest on 9/11 wore full burkas and shouted “death to America” as they marched with Taliban fighters standing guard.

Was the selection of a date unintentional- or did the Taliban figure "9/11" was a nice touch?  Business Insider last week reported

The Taliban on Tuesday announced an interim government in Afghanistan that excludes women and includes the head of a militant group who's wanted by the FBI.

Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund, one of the Taliban's founders, was named prime minister. He's on a United Nations blacklist.....

The Taliban named Sirajuddin Haqqani interior minister. Haqqani is the head of the Haqqani Network — a US-designated terror group in Pakistan and Afghanistan with close ties to al-Qaida — and there's a $10 million US bounty on his head.

The FBI's most wanted list says Haqqani is wanted for "questioning in connection with the January 2008 attack on a hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan, that killed six people, including an American citizen."

Sweethearts, all of them.  Times change, people change, regimes change, and the Taliban- along with Al Qaeda- is hostile toward ISIS-K. However, sometimes the enemy of our enemy is not our friend and for the foreseeable future, the theocratic fascists in Kabul cannot be recognized as the legitimate government of Afghanistan.
