  • Canadian military helicopters, support staff headed to Jamaica to help out in case of hurricanes.  Dozens of Canadian troops are heading to the Caribbean this week to assist the Jamaican military with medevacs and search and rescue during the region’s annual hurricane season, Defence Minister Peter MacKay announced Wednesday in Trenton, Ont. As part of Operation Jaguar, which could last until the end of November, Canada will deploy three CH-146 Griffon helicopters as well as 65 Canadian Forces personnel from Canadian Forces bases in Goose Bay, N.L., Bagotville, Que., and Trenton ….” – more on OP Jaguar here (CF Info-Machine version), here, here, here, here and here.
  • Helping out Colombia.Prime Minister Stephen Harper today announced Canadian support for new and ongoing projects that will enhance peace, security and justice in Colombia and the region. Areas of focus include preventing conflict, combating transnational criminal activity, facilitating access to justice, responding to the global threat of terrorism, ensuring security at major events and land restitution. The announcement was made during an official visit with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos ….” – more in backgrounder here.
  • Boss of CFB Trenton on to other tasks“The current commanding officer here has always been proud to call the air base his home.  He helped heal it. He helped put it on the global map.  Taking the lead of the largest and busiest air force base in the country 18 months ago, outgoing commanding officer Col. Dave Cochrane helped launch Canada’s new emergency response mission Op Jaguar along with minister of National Defence Peter MacKay Wednesday morning – a day before relinquishing his command to Col. Sean Friday.  “Since taking command last February we have done continuous operations,” said Cochrane. “It is because of efforts like Op Hestia in Haiti, our support to the Vancouver Olympic Games, the ongoing support to Afghanistan, and most recently our response to the wild fires in Northern Ontario where thousand of residents were evacuated that our emergency response units and personnel here at 8 Wing that I am proud to call this wing home and being its commander.” …. “It’s been truly amazing,” said the commanding officer, who will proceed on the advanced training list to attend the Defence and Strategic Studies Course – a top level curriculum for senior military officers and government officials engaged in national security issues – at the Australian Defence College later this year ….”
  • Letter writer doesn’t seem to get it.  1)  Writer worried about brutality of Canada’s military police after the Provost Marshal’s annual report says there’s been more investigations of sexual assault, assault and death.  2)  CF Provost Marshal writes back saying:  “These are complaints investigated by or reported to Military Police; the way the letter is written would suggest that these complaints were against the Military Police. This is clearly wrong.”  3)  Original letter writer:  “I am still unclear though as to who committed more than 700 alleged crimes, in 2010, that Grubb stated in the press that he himself was concerned about.” >>insert banging head on wall smiley here<<
  • What’s Canada Buying?  Boots, first for “user acceptance trials”, then loads if OK – more here in part of bid document (PDF).
  • Editorial on need for more help for homeless vets“…. as important as it is to find and fund a solution, correctly identifying the problem is just as crucial.  For the most part, we don’t even know who these veterans are and how they ended up on our streets. Scant research has been done in this country. But a recent study by Susan Ray and Cheryl Forchuk, two nursing professors at the University of Western Ontario, challenges the assumption that these veterans are down and out because they suffer from addictions or mental health problems that can be traced back to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  Few among the dozens of homeless vets they interviewed had ever been deployed overseas. Their average age was 52 and it often took a decade or more after their release from the Forces before they ended up on the street. Many said they learned to drink while in the military and that alcoholism helped drive them to ruin.  What this points to, according to the Western Ontario researchers, is that Veterans Affairs is having some success in identifying and assisting veterans with PTSD. Primarily, those falling through the cracks in Canada seem to be a different group who have trouble making the transition to civilian life — from a highly structured environment to one with much more freedom to make choices …. the phenomenon might be more complex than we imagine and that we need harder data if we are to respond effectively and proactively over the long term ….”
  • Libya Mission  Some of what HMCS Charlottetown was up to. “…. The ship’s superior combat co-ordination and communications systems led to its periodic assignment as Surface Action Group Commander, in which Charlottetown directed the tactical employment of allied warships and maritime patrol aircraft in the area while co-ordinating patrol areas and alert levels for shipborne helicopters. These same capabilities, summarized under the rubric “C4ISR” — standing for the command, control, communications, computing, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems — allowed the ship’s combat control centre to alert NATO to a major offensive on April 26 against Misrata by Gadhafi forces. Working with NATO air controllers, Charlottetown’s operations staff assisted with the co-ordination of air strikes that blunted the attack and eliminated several dozen assault vehicles, artillery pieces and a main battle tank. The ship had repeat performances on May 8 and 24. This Canadian frigate is responsible for saving Libyan lives and preventing Libyan military offensives against the residents of Misrata — big achievements for one ship of Canada’s navy.”
  • Afghanistan  Macleans before-and-after in Kandahar. “…. In the weeks and months of the transition from Canadian to American control, much has changed in Kandahar. The heavy hand of the American war machine has devastated the lives of many villagers. In the Arghandab valley, one elder tells Maclean’s that before the Americans came, there was peace. “Sure, the Taliban were in control,” says the 80-year-old Haji Abdul Jabar, “but they never bothered us. They treated us with respect. Now the Americans have come and they are destroying our gardens with their tanks. When they patrol the village they trample over our irrigation canals. And now war has come. Wherever the Americans go, war follows them.” ….”
  • PM’s got a new (acting) foreign & security advisor“Prime Minister Stephen Harper has brought in Christine Hogan as his acting foreign and defence policy adviser to replace Claude Carrière, who moved out of the position last month to become associate deputy minister at Agriculture Canada. Ms. Hogan, who is usually the assistant secretary to the Cabinet, foreign and defence policy, stepped into the key role temporarily after the departure of Mr. Carrière on July 11. A permanent replacement has yet to be named and the PCO has been tight-lipped on when that would happen, but former diplomats say that the next person to step into the role must be knowledgeable, well-connected, and experienced ….”
  • F-35 Tug o’ War  The good news:  American F-35’s back at work.  The bad news:  not flying yet, though.

Fresh report on Kandahar city operations

Friday, 22 October 2010 11:48 Qari Yousuf Ahmadi
KANDAHAR, Oct. 22 – New reports coming in from Kandahar city say that the city was rocked once again by very successful Mujahideen operations last night.

Mujahideen carried out deadly attacks and blasts in the city’s Yarana Market, Yakhoji, Beru Kalacha, Captain Madad Chowk, Brishna Kot, Shorandam, the houses of Ahmad Wali Karzai and Haji Abdullah and in other areas as well.

Mujahideen detonated an explosive-laden motorcycle on enemy soldiers in Yarana Market in which 11 puppets were killed. At the same time another 5 puppets were killed in an ambush in Sima bridge. Similarly another 4 puppet police were killed in a firefight in Beru Kalacha and 2 NATO logistical vehicles were torched in Yakhoji area.

In Captain Madad Chowk Mujahideen detonated 2 remote-controlled IED’s on an enemy Surf 4WD, killing and wounding all onboard and another 3 police of 7th Brigade were also killed by a surprise attack of small arms fire.

Once again, just like last time, Mujahideen attacked the house of Ahmad Wali Karzai and Haji Abdullah using heavy and light weapons as a result 14 of their gunmen were killed. Similarly another 3 puppet police were also killed when a blast detonated in front of their check post in Brishna Kot area.

Mujahideen say that due to their attacks and blasts in the area between Shorandam and city center some 5 puppets were killed and their patrol vehicle was also destroyed. Mujahideen add that the operations throughout the night were very successful because no Mujahideen were Martyred or wounded. They say that they had also taken positions on rooftops of the whole city but none of the enemy dared come out. Patrols did come out but only in Lalak Mama Tamir and Kuchni areas but fled after coming under fierce attacks.

These attacks of Mujahideen clearly show that the lies of Ahmad Wali and his masters, of ridding the city from Mujahideen are false and shows that Mujahideen can strike at any time in any part of the city they choose.

Statement of Islamic Emirate regarding the latest organized enemy propaganda Screen capture of full statement at Scribd.com

 

Thursday, 21 October 2010 13:41 –

The NATO forces in Afghanistan, in collaboration with their Afghan puppets and western media outlets under the leadership of U.S have been trying by diplomatic maneuver and organized propaganda to make it appear as though Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate were ready for negotiations and that they have made progress in this regard.

Although the Islamic Emirate has previously issued a number statements regarding this subject, in which it clearly rejects such false claims and calls it a failed last ditch effort by the enemy but the impudent enemy persistently keeps putting forward such mind boggling lies through its propaganda channels and through the bought out leaders of the so called Peace Council without presenting any kind of credible proof whatsoever.

Once again, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan wants to remind the world and its countrymen its stance on the issue. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan refutes outright these false claims neither has it sent any delegations for talks and neither does it intend to negotiate at a time when the country is under occupation.

In this regard, we must say to Burhanuddin Rabbani and the other degraded faces not to revive old enmities by promoting these false allegations nor should they run the propaganda campaigns to please America. As Afghans, they should not aid General Petreaus’s strategy (bullets and negotiations) developed by the Pentagon because the General wants to have this strategy worked through your hands in such a wicked way that Afghanistan may permanently become a colony of America.

From our point of view, another reason for this intense fabricated propaganda by Karzai and General Petreaus is also likely to win the confidence of the people by making it seem as if Kabul administration (the crooked and corrupt regime) could bring forth a solution to the problems of Afghanistan.

The Islamic Emirate irrefutably believes that in the presence of foreign invaders, peace talks and any kinds of negotiation deals will be futile as they will not yield a positive outcome for the Momin people and nation. For this reason, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan once again calls on the invaders to stop wasting their time on failed propaganda and military campaigns instead leave Afghanistan so it can enjoy a few years in peace and independence.

Insisting on continuing your crimes may get you noting but lose political and economical credibility in the eyes of the world which is likely to end up bringing about far more fatal casualties on your part.

Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan

Peace talks in conditions of the presence of foreign forces are meaningless and futile. Screen capture of full statement at Scribd.com

 

Tuesday, 19 October 2010 12:50 –

Interview with Maulavi Abdul Kabir, member of the Leadership Council of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the Coordinating Chief of the Eastern Provinces: Peace talks in conditions of the presence of foreign forces are meaningless and futile.

Q: Recently, the Head of the Kabul Administration, Karzai, announced establishment of a set-up under the name of peace high council, consisting of 69 persons including chiefs of former factions, other famous figures and former officials of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. What is your view about the establishment of the peace council, its importance and the effectiveness of its members and the council’s role in bringing about peace in the country?

A: Foundation of Jirgas and mutual deliberation is an accepted norm among the Afghans. It is an institution traditionally utilized for the resolution of internal disputes and issues. But the said peace council is a one-sided entity, having been established to protect their unilateral goals and interests. The council consists of people who practically support the Americans, though they claim being Jihadic figures and leaders. But by siding with the American invaders, they have forfeited their credibility in the eyes of the Afghans which they once enjoyed during the era of the former Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan. Similarly, some persons who were once officials of the Islamic Emirate, have been given membership in the peace council but they are not in the capacity to represent the Islamic Emirate. They themselves are living under the eyes and surveillance of the Americans.

Q: Your reaction to every initiative of peace is usually negative and, instead you emphasize on the use of force. Do you not think that this posturing portrays your weakness in the diplomatic filed?

A: In Afghanistan, in the current condition, only those efforts of peace and reconciliation are pragmatic which surely leads to withdrawal of the foreign invading forces from Afghanistan and pave the way for establishment of an Islamic system in the country. This objective can’t be achieved in conditions of presence of foreign forces in the country.

Q: During the reign of the Islamic Emirate, severe fighting took place in areas, north of Kabul and other northern provinces of the country. Thousands of armed men lost their lives as a result. Many of them were detained and tortured. Thus, it would have created mistrust between you and the hostility would have still been existing. What steps have you taken to resolve these problems and usher in an atmosphere of confidence instead? Do you intend to take certain measures to achieve that goal.

A: This fact is clear as the broad day light that the Islamic Emirate has never fought on tribal, ethnical and geographical basis. During the government of the Islamic Emirate, people of all ethnicities had participation in the government and movement including in northern parts of the country. Currently, the Islamic Emirate has presence both in the north, south and other parts of the country with formal organizational set-ups being in place in every province. You pointed to Islamic Emirate’s antagonism during its reign in the north of the country; I would like to explain that the Islamic Emirate has never fought against the people in the north nor it harbors any kind of enmity on the basis of ethnicity and geographical location. Rather it has fought against that elements who were hurling hurdles in the way of noble objectives of the Islamic Emirate like establishment of country-wide peace and formation of an Islamic system in the country. Similarly, the Islamic Emirate has fought against self-same elements in the south that were considered as stumbling blocks in the way of peace and establishment of an Islamic government. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan regards all Afghans as being equal with no discrimination. We call on all pious people in the north of the country and on all other countrymen to strengthen the strongholds of Jihad against the invaders further more and foil the overt and covert conspiracies and plans of the enemy.

Q: Some interesting points had been included in the message of Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid on the eve of the Eid, including details about characteristics of government system in the country. Among them, devolvement of responsibilities and posts on the basis of professionalism and expertise is worth mentioning. Other points spoke of creating a consultative system. Would you please highlight a little further by touching on the requirements needed to qualify a person to hold a post in the framework of the Islamic Emirate, namely would that include other people with modern education and professions rather than the students of Madrassa’s and religious scholars?

A: Even during the reign of the Islamic Emirate, the professional people were not disregarded but had had participation in the government. Only Taliban and religious scholars were appointed to some higher slots. The rest were professional officials who were serving the country. The Islamic Emirate will endeavor more than ever if it gained power with the help of the Almighty Allah, to appoint more professional cadres in the government. As to your mentioning that would the advantage for appointment in a post be limited only to a Talib or a religious scholar, I would like to say. No. Never. The prerequisite for that is piety and capacity. Any one can have these qualitificiations to become proper candidate for work in the framework of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

Q: Any government that may be established in Afghanistan, should have a comprehensive policy to maintain good relations with the neighboring countries and that the neighbors may not sense danger from them. This is necessary for stability of any government in Afghanistan. Does the Islamic Emirate has any practical plan in this regard and would it assure the neighboring countries that it would not resort to any action against them but rather would follow a policy of the principle of mutual respect?

(A): We are Muslims. A Muslim knows the rights of a neighbor in the light of Islam. During its reign, the Islamic Emirate had tried to establish good relations with neighboring countries. No one can ever produce any evidence to show that we had created problems for the neighbors. Even in these critical conditions that we are passing through, no neighbor including Pakistan and Iran has evidence to prove that we have intervened in their internal affairs. The esteemed Amir-ul-Mominnee has touched on this topic in details in his messages. It is our official policy.

Q: Some times, we hear rumors claiming that the leadership of Taliban is engaged in peace talks with the Americans and the Kabul administration. They say, the talks were held first in a certain country, then in another given country. Moreover, media reports refer to your role that you have willingness to engage in peace negotiation. Who circulate these amours and what is their objective?

A: No doubt, the Americans have faced defeat at the military field. All their stratagems have gone awry. Now the Americans and their allies are making efforts to have some gains in the diplomatic field. Therefore, they launch spurious efforts under the name of reconciliation and peace time and again. They are trying to produce some fabricated indications in order to give cosmetic leverage to their claims. They mention names of a few members of the leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, saying, they have had contacts with them or at least, shown willingness to initiate negotiation. In fact, all these are futile propaganda of the invaders aimed at creating mistrust between the Muslims and the Mujahideen. You know the enemy have not produced any evidence despite many claims to indicate that the officials of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan were engaged in talks with them. Nor they are able to produce one. This explains that the talks have not taken place nor the officials of the Islamic Emirate are intending to engage in the talks.

Reaction of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Regarding the Security Council’s Decision to extend Screen capture of full statement at Scribd.com

Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:57 –

The UN Security Council has once again issued a resolution, extending the unjustified foreign invasion in the country for one more year as it allowed aggression against the miserable Afghanistan nine years ago, by interpreting and explaining anew, article 7 of the Charter of the United Nations.

Similarly, the UNSC has raised the issue of civilian casualties in Afghanistan in its recent statements and has put the blame on the Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate in an effort to please Washington. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan believes, the resolutions and decisions of the Security Council are the main cause behind the current nine-years long tragedy and the flames of war in Afghanistan, therefore, the Islamic Emirate, as usual, condemns the recent decision of the Security Council.

The I.E. is of the opinion that the one-sided stand of UNSC is a great and unforgettable betrayal with the miserable people of Afghanistan. It is pity that the UNSC, as a universal body, adds fuel to the flames of war and gives legitimacy to the extension of the mission while it should have worked for world security and human prosperity.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan believes the UNSC‘s judgment about civilian casualties in Afghanistan is partial and biased. The Islamic Emirate on its part and for elucidation of the matter, has called on all human rights organizations and entities to constitute a joint comprehensive team to carry out impartial survey in the whole country and declare the realties but unfortunately, the world’s organizations, particularly, the UNSC, instead of conducting investigation into the matter, passes decision that do not stand on facts. It seems the UNSC wants to distract the attention of the public of the world from the ground realities in Afghanistan by its resorting to blind judgments and accusations.

In our view, the UNSC, on the basis of its principles, should not contribute to the prolongation of war in Afghanistan by passing such decisions but should work for ending the war and occupation in the country by using its caliber. This will restore its lost credibility and meanwhile, save the Afghans from the fire of the unjustified and imposed war.
