"Our" Afghanistan is committed to human rights, wants a
democratic government based on it, but is prevented by the
Taliban, says the Northern Alliance's embassy in Kuala Lumpur.
The Northern Alliance is known here as the Islamic state of
Afghanistan, and its embassy does, as the need arises to show it
exists, tell the world, if not Malaysia, how wonderful things are
in its bailliwick, and how the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan,
more widely known as the Taliban, makes short shrift of all those
wonderful ideas Thomas Jefferson and his colleagues made it a
requirement for good governance. "Our ideology is unlike the
Talibans," it said, and the Islamic state's "broad-based and
multi-ethnic character" is proof of this commitment.
The NA is not involved in hosting terror groups, the Taliban
is. Because the Taliban, with armed forces like Mr Osama bin
Laden and his Al-Qaeda group, the Pakistan "occupying force", and
receive "orders and instructions" from Pakistan "fanatics". The
Taliban, therefore, are "criminals in accordance with the
provisions of the Afghan criminal code (1974). Further, "they
have committed high treason and they would be tried and punished
"in due process of law inside Afghanistan." At least, Malaysia
at least knows why the Anglo-American aerial bombardment goes on
relentlessly: it is to ensure the Taliban is brought to justice
under the AFghan criminal code. Why then is the Pentagon and
Whitehall briefings ignore this important fact in their daily
briefings? What are Washington and London so queasy of bringing
into power these paragons of human rights and justice as the
Islamic state of Afghanistan claims it is?
Where was this respect for the criminal code when it was in
power after the Soviet Union was booted out of Afghanistan? Did
not ISA (NA) elements throw acid upon women who had makeup and
were unveiled, when it was in power? Or is it its considered
opinion that women are lower than dogs in Afghanistan? Was the
criminal code applied when they ruled the roost? Why did the
people rise with the Taleban then to force them into the corner
of Afghanistan where the minority tribe they represent? If they
rose because the AFghan criminal code was applied strictly, then
why is this international coalition against (of?) terror are so
terrified of the ISA in power. Why do they believe then that the
ISA in Afghanistan would be more horrific than Dr Mahathir's ISA,
and should not, under any circumstance be in charge in Kabul?
Since it is, in its view, a modern state, with respect for people
and property, why I wonder does it not state when free and
unfettered general elections would be held?
So, there is an aspect of the bombardment that the British
and American briefers miss, as casualties mount, and bombs drop
where they should not, and briefers rush to escape public odium
for its "one must be cruel to be kind" policy of bombing
indiscriminately to force the Taliban to vomit MR Osama from
Afghanistan's cavernouse mountain caves. The Americans would
have been more likely to accept if the bombing was to force the
Taliban to be accountable under the law. And the ISA plans
to try, and punish, those guilty of all these horrendous crimes.
The Taliban leaders, in case Malaysians did not know, are
"criminals who should be brought to justice for the crimes they
have committed in Afghanistan.".
The ISA's commitment to law is such that the Talibans are
guilty before the trial -- first the trial, then the execution --
and they should not be in any future government the
Anglo-American coalition against terror would install. Only one
thing is certain: ISA and IEA, or to put it in the current
idiom, NA and the Taleban, play no part in that. If the NA was a
normal choice, why is this crazy scheme to put an octogenarian
king in power for the very reasons he was booted out by his
brother-in-law three decades ago?
