Khalil Nouri: Afghanistan: — Danger Looms if Afghan Vice President & Warlord becomes Country’s President.


What some Afghan natives and analysts call the most dangerous part of the world has reached a critical juncture, “a tipping point”. Per Guardian and New York Times reports, “President Hamid Karzai has lost faith in the US strategy in Afghanistan and is increasingly looking to Pakistan to end the insurgency.”

Qasim Fahim--Afghan Vice President

Rest assured that this is wishful thinking on Mr. Karzai’s part; it is a pipedream. Pakistan may not even want to waste their time to contemplate. In fact, the window of opportunity has long gone when Mr. Karzai’s intimacy with Pakistan’s arch rival India, who allegedly supported the Northern Alliance for many years in Afghanistan, is still considered a threat in the minds of some top Pakistani government officials. In hindsight, Karzai’s own instability and insanity is now considered the greater threat.

However, the most recent event in Kabul was the beginning of a panic mode within the Karzai government’s inner circle when two—most admired by the West—of his confidants; the senior intelligence chief Mr. Amrullah Saleh and the head of the Afghan interior ministry Mr. Hanif Atmar were both sacked from their positions.

According to a New York Times report, Mr. Karzai’s motive for the firings was to allegedly comply with Pakistan’s demand to be rid Mr. Saleh (ethnically a Tajik and once a confidant to Ahmad Shah Masoud) who as a hardliner railed against Karzai’s desire for reconciliation efforts to bring the Taliban to the table. That said, according to a reliable source in Kabul, another Karzai inner circle official, Vice President and powerful warlord Marshal Qasim Fahim (also a Tajik and a hardliner) is anxiously showing his interest in securing his own foothold in these game changing times. The source said, “He could go for the kill by securing the president’s position … (for himself)… in these panicky times.” If such a scenario were to ever develop, then Afghanistan is highly likely to spiral once again into a chaotic civil war between North and South.

When Karzai announced Mr. Fahim as his vice-president in the last election, many in Kabul alleged Mr. Fahim was at the time involved in criminal activities, including kidnapping for ransom; as well as human rights abuses during Afghanistan’s decades of war.

By choosing Mr. Fahim—with the blood of many Afghans on his hands—as his Vice-president, Mr. Karzai stained his own credibility even further. It also showed a lack of sanity on the part of Karzai for putting himself and the whole nation into such a delicate and risky predicament.

In any case, the source further said, “there is no doubt that Mr. Karzai in an accidental circumstance or … (any other drastic outcome)… could lose his presidency and Mr. Fahim who is second in charge – …(and according to)… the Afghan constitution–has the legitimate right to assume the position of the Afghan president for himself.” He further said that if this ever were to happen, “We will see a blood bath between ethnic Pashtuns and Tajiks all over Afghanistan.”

Moreover, with the support of the well trained 60 percent ethnic Tajik majority dominating the Afghan National Army and Police, it is highly likely to give enough confidence to the former Northern Alliance leader for him to believe that he could withstand any offense by the Pashtuns from Southern and Eastern parts of the country.

It remains to be seen as to what the upcoming Afghan parliamentary elections and the international conference on Afghanistan in Kabul evolves into, but our native Afghan analysis suggest that a plan must be drafted for a viable alternative solution just in case panicking officials within the Karzai government should act in ways that would cause massive societal disruptions.

The difficulty here is the problem of to even bringing up the delicate subject of a change of government in Afghanistan. But, the legitimacy of the Karzai government is questioned by major Afghan tribal leaders, by the general Afghan public, and by the opposition who have been labeled in the western world as the Taliban; all have a stake in this matter. And, there is an emerging consensus within the whole nation of Afghanistan that is calling for the return of a Head of State with limited political power who can represent all Afghans. There is a growing call for a descendent of the former king to be made Head of State; someone who would be above politics, a constitutional monarch, a new Afghan King who represents the nation and unites all Afghans around the world. Politics would be relegated to the Prime minister, his deputy ministers and a Parliament. The national police and army would be relegated to protecting the king, and each province would have its own police and Provincial Guard military force. The Provincial Guard would act like America’s National Guard who could be called forth by the King and his select league of tribal elders or the prime minister to protect the nation.

This process starts by communicating with all Afghan tribal leaders who would then choose a special group of elders, a select league. This select league of elders would convene a series of leadership conferences inside and outside of Afghanistan. They would first meet to choose royal candidates for the Afghan Head of State. They would then travel to several capitals within the region before traveling on to capitals in the western world; and finally they would visit the United Nations in New York City as special guests. During this process, elders will have time to assess what is needed in the individual that they will choose as Head of State when they return home, based upon their own experiences in the world that they discover outside of Afghanistan; and having the time to screen out any bad blood inside their group if necessary, while building up the spirit of unity among themselves.

By traveling the world before selecting their King, the select tribal elders would see for themselves what is needed in the leader they select. The goal is to create a true Afghan democracy based on Afghan consciousness and consensus, while bringing Afghanistan’s people into the 21st Century; and by recognizing today’s status of facts on the ground as well as yesterdays tribal governing traditions, a bridge between yesterday’s successes and 21st Century needs can be created and strengthened.

From this group a number of things can be accomplished, like having these leaders put forth the names of young people who they see as future leaders that can to be trained in the ideas of traditional Afghan values as well as 21st Century concepts that will benefit their nation for generations; always with great respect for the full integrity of Afghanistan’s need for unique multi-tribal balancing influences.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
