This is shameful and not at all new. In the past, the Taliban imposed a “temporary” ban on girls’ education that lasted five years. They are testing our resolve. We demand that leaders stand up for Afghan girls’ right to go to school. theguardian.com/world/2021/s…

"The global average temperature will rise 2.7 degrees Celsius by century’s end even if all countries meet their promised emissions cuts" And we're of course far from reaching even these highly insufficient targets. How long will we let this madness go on? nytimes.com/2021/09/17/clima…

"Prince" Andrew is wanted to answer serious charges. He will not have to do that because we in the UK have a "Royal Family". A family of individuals who, historically, are "top people" that are above us and ordinary law. It is the year 2021.

I have covered the 'War on Terror' since 2001, from the aftermath of 9/11 in the US to long periods in Afghanistan and Iraq. My take on the wars that ended up in defeat for America and a less safe world, with comments from @husainhaqqani and others asia.nikkei.com/Spotlight/Th…

Facebook shut down our research into its role in spreading disinformation. The stakes for everyone are too high to let Facebook control who can study disinformation online. theguardian.com/technology/2…

Agree. Overlooks the fact that Pakistan under Benazir Bhutto championed the Taliban as a unifying force capable of ending the country’s chaos (!) - her security chief Naseerullah Babar led a diplomatic campaign to persuade Western govts to support the movement.
Replying to @myraemacdonald
> Pakistan didn't change that worldview after 9/11. Musharraf took tactical action to avoid threatened U.S. reprisals and then resumed the old approach. Its failure to use 2001 as an opportunity to change course has been disastrous for the region, including Pakistan itself.
