Far from fighting the takfiri terrorists, the US wants to reintegrate them into society. In fact, they are being kept on hold for mischief and mayhem elsewhere in the Muslim world.
The US-crafted Afghan regime with two rulers—a president and a chief executive—had little chance of success. It is coming unhinged amid political squabbling as the Taliban make military gains across the country.
Last month’s failed coup attempt in Turkey has exposed the alternate State that exists in the shadows. It has shown how deeply unsavory characters have penetrated the various institutions of state.1
Has the US finally realized the futility of its policy in Syria? US Secretary of State John Kerry's latest statement seems to give the clearest indication that US policy of trying to topple the government of President Bashar al Asad has failed.
