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

        "Come on? Pakistani Taliban?"
        Northwest Afghanistan is Visaristan, 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 centuries and did not allow them to conquer Afghanistan), and the Pashtuns live there, on one side or the other. Even the regular army of Pakistan tries not to get into Visaristan. The Taliban are mostly local Pashtuns, "madrasah students are students." And at the origins of the Taliban were the Americans and taught them there, in Visaristan on ter. Pakistan. Pakistan, which supported the emergence of the Taliban, had a huge impact on it through its special. service. But then the boy grew out of his pants. And now this Taliban is a huge headache for Pakistan. The Taliban are one of the reasons why Pakistani-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 as secular. This is probably why the attack is completely on the university. hi
        It would be necessary to "clean up" Pakistan. Beijing already has good relations with them.

        S-400 in China and India. With the Russian Federation and its air defense, everything is clear. Iran and Kazakhstan - S-300. All airspace in Asia for NATO will be closed if Islamabad is still pulled over to its side. They will get a funny picture (NATO) - "closed" Asia, defending its interests - but for them it will be a "phase shift". Then surround, do not surround the PRC or the Russian Federation, everything will turn out to no avail. Trade will go into the interior of the continent, and not by sea - and that's all. But there is a good prospect for us - our products of deep processing are just sold in Asia. Let's take another look at the commodity markets. And this is half of humanity. And there is a lot of work - we need infrastructure: auto 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 out negatively about the role of the United States and the Taliban in Pakistan - "changed his shoes" as soon as he resigned; but he is a military man and made 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 you talk about with "people" who are considered by the rest of the world to be barbarians and aborigines, for whom even human pity should not be shown.

      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.
