    Come on? Pakistani Taliban? Have they completely lost their minds? They always fled from Afghanistan to Pakistan like a roasting smell ...

        "C'mon? Pakistani Taliban?"
        The north-west of Afghanistan is Vizaristan, a place of compact residence of Pashtuns. There the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan is conditional (mountains, it was there that the Pashtuns beat the British in the middle of the century and did not allow Afghanistan to conquer), and the Pashtuns live there, on the one hand, and on the other hand. In Vizaristan, even the regular army of Pakistan tries not to meddle. The Taliban are mainly local Pashtuns, "students of madrassas are students." And the Americans stood at the origins of the Taliban and trained them there, in Vizaristan, on ter. Pakistan. Pakistan, which supported the emergence of the Taliban, had a huge influence on it through its special forces. service. But then the boy grew out of panties. And now this Taliban is a huge headache for Pakistan. The Taliban is one of the reasons why Pakistan-US relations have cooled. The main reason for the disagreement between Pakistan and the Taliban is that the latter do not want to see Pakistan secular. Perhaps that is why the attack is completely on the university. hi
        It would be necessary for Pakistan to "tidy itself up." Beijing already has a good relationship with them.

        S-400 in China and India. With the Russian Federation and its air defense, everything is clear. Iran and Kazakhstan - S-300. The entire airspace of Asia will be closed to NATO, if Islamabad is still pulled to its side. A funny picture for them will turn out (NATO) - "closed" Asia, defending its interests - yes it will be a "phase shift" for them. Here, surround-do not surround the PRC or the Russian Federation to no avail. Trade will go inside the continent, and not by sea - and that's all. But there is a good prospect for us - our deep processing products are just sold in Asia. Recall the commodity markets. And this is half of humanity. And a lot of work - you need infrastructure: cars and rail. roads, pipelines and airports with ports. And this is a bunch of jobs. So the prospects are good and the SCO will help us. By the way, Pakistan also wants to go there. And Pervez Musharraf (former president) recently spoke negatively about the role of the United States and the Taliban in Pakistan - he “changed his shoes” as soon as he resigned; but he is a military man and carried out a coup in Pakistan. hi
        By the way, the Chinese stopped demanding to load grain into bags - they came up with a smut, two years we were powdered with brains - finally grain carriers were forced to sell. So I understand that only from Kazakhstan is 1 mil. tons this year will go there. Good market for us. They also tried meat (I mean on the coast of China, they mostly eat seafood there) - and this is such a breakthrough that you have time to ship it later.

    They swore - they did not swear: these are their internal gang fights. The Taliban are no better than the Ishilovites ....For reference: «Taliban ”- a terrorist organization banned in a number of countries, including Russia.

    I want to draw your attention to the reaction of the West regarding the attacks:
    - terrorist attack in Paris - a crime against humanity;
    - Germans died in Turkey - a crime against humanity;
    - our plane over Sinai - Russia itself was to blame did not have to climb into Syria;
    - terrorist attacks in Africa, Afghanistan, Pakistan (until today) - complete silence.
    What can we talk about with "people" who the rest of the world consider barbarians and Aborigines to which even human pity is not worth it.

      most struck that the staff of some sort of Russian magazine (I don’t remember the name) brought condolences to the relatives of the victims in Paris, but did not bring condolences to the relatives of the Russians who died in the explosion of an airplane

      even if it’s an empty formality, but very indicative
      after that it was necessary to close the magazine in a good way, and journalists - to the black list so that they could not get a job
      time to take the citadel of democracy as an example laughing

    Well, the fact that in Africa, in Afghanistan there are barbarians who have learned during their existence to blow up each other and howl donkeys - this is really so. Barbarians. And they are not at all sorry! Do you know any physicist, mathematician, from Africa or from Afghanistan, who discovered something useful for the world? I personally don’t know. So let them kill each other, monkeys.
