Suddenly, Taliban’s Victory is a Risk For The World?

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Control Risks said there was a ‘very high’ chance Afghanistan could become a safe haven for terrorists but we wonder if these people in the risk business spoke to the Taliban?

Nevermind that. The report published in The Independent UK suggests the Taliban will ferment terror organisations and harbour terrorists. The aim will. be to spread ‘Islamic’ terror globally.

The leading security company is very serious in its accusations, which is not made without the deep study of the situation in Afghanistan.

But let us take the report with a dose of salt. Not everything the company is saying will materialise, unless, things turn out to be just like in the CIA playbook.

The Islamist victory across the border has led to the formation of new militant alliances in Pakistan’s tribal areas and the rise in assaults on security forces there are likely to continue, says Control Risks.

As far as we know, these alliances existed well before the Taliban victory in Kabul in August this year.

The Control Risk report is also unsure of what it wants to say.

“It will come as no surprise that Afghanistan has moved to ‘extreme’ from ‘high’. The Taliban, a sanctioned terrorist organisation, is in control. Or maybe it is not, which is one of the elements of volatility in that country for the coming year. The risk is very high that Afghanistan becomes a safe haven for terrorists with ambitions within its border and beyond.”

It says the rise of ‘Islamic’ terror in some parts of the Sahel will encourage the Taliban to have links with these terror orgs. And these terror organisations will use Afghanistan as a springboard to launch their attacks?

They are already using Africa, their homeland, as a springboard to attack Western targets. The African terrorists, as they are called, do not need the Taliban or Afghanistan to succeed in what they are doing.

They are successful so far, because neither the US, the British nor the Germans or the French are able to contain or defeat them in a single round so far.

We can only tsk, tsk at the report.
