The Trump Administration's Policies in Afghanistan and Africa

"The foundation for the Defense of Democracies. He's a senior fellow keeps the Long word journal with Tom Johnson and his colleagues. We go immediately to Afghanistan because here during the Republican convention We want to explicate what we can of the Republican intention if it is successful, winning a second term for President Trump and then to remark upon thee. Trump administration's policies in Africa, particularly when it comes to the kind of length organization Al Shabaab on the attack. Billa Very good evening to Afghanistan, you and Tom for many weeks and months now. Have illustrated that the trump policy from the first term was to make a deal with the Taliban and withdraw as much of the American presidents as possible. And hope for the best. I do not expect the Republicans toe have another direction is your sense bill that the military is quit with Afghanistan? As much as the political apparatus is quit, are there of two minds here? Good evening to you, Bill. Good evening, John. Yes. So I agree with you. The Trump Administration is not going to change policy in Afghanistan, Um, barring some type of major events. Um, it's it's just both sides of the aisle are pushing the end The endless wars narrative, which, of course is ridiculous, because the jihadists have a say, and they're going to keep fighting when we leave, of course. We could. You could say something like we wantto end our involvement in these wars. Fine, But the wars will continue our enemies get a vote, and they're nowhere near tired of fighting. The U. S. First the U. S military goes for Afghanistan. Give US military as a whole. Once out of Afghanistan, it's been a drain on their resource is on their energy. Um, I don't. I think they don't see an end. There. They feel again. I'm not speaking for the entire military. And this was the sense I get from millet, you know, from top military leaders. Who have basically signed on signed off on this policy. There's been no objection publicly to this policy of, uh, negotiating with the Taliban and cutting a deal with them, even though they support Al Qaeda. In the meantime, the Taliban and there is Taliban Afghanistan. In several iterations, there's Taliban, Pakistan and several generations the Taliban is preparing for Nearly triumph, but rule I follow from your posting at long word general that Tariq eat Taliban. Pakistan is congratulating the Muslim UMA in general and the Mujahideen in particular on the merger of the two main groups of jihad in Pakistan. Can we regard this as a temporary merger because and they'll be back to fighting over cities or is there some collective push now for the Pakistan, Taliban and the Afghanistan Taliban to work together? So I think there's a push for the Pakistani Taliban in the Afghan Taliban already work close together, Um they Pakistani Taliban fighters have refocused their efforts to Afghanistan. After Pakistani military operations against them. Remember the Pakistanis play a double game? You're You're a good jihadist If you fight in Afghanistan are cashmere, but you're bad jihadists in the fight against the Pakistani state. So this merger that came up really? I found a little surprising because I could point back to a statement in 2015, where the one of the two groups of it's called One of them's Hezbollah, Har. Um, you know, so it had announced that it already merged with the movement of the calibre, or should I say there were ties broken during the turmoil back in 14 4015 with Mullah Omar staffed and when Melissa was alone took over the Pakistani Taliban. Ah, lot of inside baseball, but I won't go into but they had already announced that they had reunited, so something has happened here. Within the last five years. I think this is really sort of There was probably some kind of personality dispute, and I think a lot of this is for propaganda anyway. Really, to just say, hey, look, we're all unified. We're all going to, you know, operate under the same command when I think essentially they were doing the same thing. I go to Africa because you are a U is a long word General have resource is to cover the story of Al Shabaab. We spoke recently of their surprisingly professional looking videos of their recruiting on their training. Now we have a report from long word general of Al Shabaab on the attack hotel military base suicide assault, reminding me that this is a very sophisticated outfit trained with Al Qaeda, Sze Ah complex attacks as Al Shabaab growing and strength to your measure, it does the next Trump administration need to pour more resource is or get out as well. Yes. Oh, Africa has always been fascinating, particularly Somalia. I think some outside of the Taliban Shabbab is the most effective jihadist insurgency in the world. They have They continually take the fight to the rump some Somali government they control 25% of the country despite the fact that you have the African Union and the US and what they could piece together the Somali military and police. To oppose them, and they're there have very good propaganda. As you noted, It's improved a lot over the years and there are very effective at conducting their attacks and keeping their their fighters. Trained and keeping them in the rank and file. Remember, there's been an attempt by the Islamic state to poach from Shabaab, but it's been largely unsuccessful. Not only did they have they conducted major attacks on military bases and hotels, yet another town this one outside of the town of Baidoa, which eyes in sorry the city. If I go, it's probably the second largest city in southern Somalia. Um they took over the town after the Somali military withdrew in the Somali military withdrew from that town because Shabaab was besieging it, so I think Um, I always reluctant to say they're growing in strength. Thes groups have sort of There's an Evan flow to the fighting, and sometimes particularly went outside groups. When the African Union and the US start piling on them. They have some issues, but they're able to await it out. That's the one thing these John, one of the several things that they have. To their advantage. They have the time. You know, that old saying goes, we have all the clocks, but they have all the time While they're very patient in their fight. They're very patient in their jihad. While we have men may have sophisticated military equipment, that's the clocks. They have the time and patients in the will to fight these battles, not enough terms of the US election cycles but in terms of decades Built in general. Now we're at the crossroads for another administration, either, Mr Trump second. Mr Biden's first. Is there any indication pattern worldwide that Al Qaeda is waiting for that decision, or are they staying on the offensive? Matt, no matter who wins. Yeah, I think there are on the offensive. No matter who wins. They do follow the political situation here, but I think they've come to the conclusion that this is just my opinion here. But I think they've come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter again that end the endless wars narrative and and the actions by the U. S government over two successive administrations. Policies of withdrawn, scaled down and whatnot would look to us is withdrawing troops from Iraq. It just closed that the major based ontology or at least US personnel being at that base. Almost 2000 troops are coming out of there. Um, they see this all and nature there taking it all in, and they realized that the end of our fight in administration is not going to counter act. These measures. Bill Rocha

"It's gonna set off any ideas that might be and once buildings to go in and kind of take blankets to say on the reef in the cold before they move forward. The next house. I wanna ask you a bit about the dangers. You've ace doing this kind of reporting. How do you calculate which risks are worth taking? I think generally speaking, this is a bit of an unusual situation in the the situation on the ground is more fluid than me expect it, but generally speaking in kind of frontline where the enemy is, you know, where you are and you can calculate the risks. You can kinda work out where the best place to stay in cover. What your means of escape escaper if it comes to it and all that kind of stuff say, yeah. Normally, it's quite easy to kind of make these calculations. This was obviously a slight different situation than the one expand. I mean, what would be a different situation where you'd be able to say no this risk is too much. Well healing in rocker. There's a clear sense of the front lines. You knew that the control one block of houses, and ISIS, the next block of houses say you worked out how to move and where to film from all kind of stuff based on knowledge, otherwise across all the fighting northeast Syria over the past few years normally being across a broad. Mt. Kind of step environment spoon. Villagers say again, it was a traditional front line. We had very clear idea where the enemy was in like in this situation. It was really product of the kind of very dense undergrowth and watch the allow. Oude ISIS the capacity to kind of move around unseen and all that anec-. Some of the men that you encounter have been fighting for years, whether against aside Qaeda, ISIS, what are they like? In a war has effects them. In sense, often go very different sense of risk to ask kind of western intellect his coming in for short period of time and leaving again. Yes. Some of them having five years mostly. At this point. If you've been fighting for years, you kind of work your way out the command scale and your commander or your dad, and I may see people on the front line of a relatively new recruits, his constant kind of recruiting process gay on kind of churn of fighters trout as the. Even cross women and children, many of them are widows and orphans vices fighters. And some of these women have been in the news lately. What is it like to meet them? I think it's just come out with very traumatic environment where they've been kind of hemmed in a really tiny space of line that seems to contain tens of thousands of people somehow say, but time we've met them. They've just come out of this kind of long arduous, smugglers brute and to s the front lines. So sometimes it despite their kind of ideological animus against the west which many of them have they'll be quite keen to kind of express their anger will decides faction it at the at the circumstances in which they find themselves. I mean, describing is wife often doesn't really cover. I mean, they are many of them will miss them female ISIS members. They are members of ISIS supporters of in what ISIS did. And what it stood for particularly did by calling my says wives. You're not giving them the sort of agency having chosen the life for themselves camin. Yeah. Absolutely. I think you can distinguish between say. Local Syrian women who are the wise people who may have been FSA vices originally who then the overtime kind of joined ISIS or like most Syrian women that we met there were from north Aleppo, so they presumably came from like within the kind of the rebel dynamic and over time.

"City's America's biggest enemy making its return tonight, and where Iraq Al Qaeda taking over the very off to the two battles in two thousand and four. US troops along with three thousand trained Iraqi soldiers launch operation phantom fury. The second battle of Lucia begin. It continued to be a difficult place until after two thousand seven two thousand eight when things began squatting down a bit on Iraq. And then it, you know, began to today and around late two thousand and twelve note long before bicycle came onto the scene. Fighters from the Qaeda linked Islam states in the Levant claim they have taken over the main highway into the town of flu. Joe lose control of town, which was one of the cost of such intense fighting and so many American lives and to lose it to an al-qaeda affiliate risks raising the question what the whole war was full. Okay. So at that point, the US have pretty much withdrawn from the wall and the KT, but then right at the end of twenty thirteen ISIS, take control of leisure. Why do you think it was able to move in? I mean, I think it managed to get into hold ago because of the kind of six cool political crisis, which is the Sunnis in Iraq felt extremely nation dissatisfied. And there was no real attempt to do with the root causes of alienated. And that made it easy radicalization to happen say Felicia was one of the very first ease to fall under control of ISIS and ISIS. His rule was as very brutal. And it was then two years before they were driven out by US in Iraqi forces. Senior. Iraqi commander says the city Faluji has been liberated flew to them as liberation in two thousand sixteen after after battling the city, you know, is a pretty fist battle and one of the features of it was the as in other places ISIS had had essentially dug in around what they called caliphate and try to hold ground and part of holding that ground men sort of building barrier minefields around the city and influence case. I mean, the the belt minefields probably about fifteen kilometers long. That's h they're huge when you get the outskirts. I mean, that's where the fighting was most fist is sort of a complex of of university buildings on the southern edge of flu. And this quite new neighborhood called Shahada which was being built in the area of kind of. The farmland meets the city, and there's sort of new breeze blockhouses. I'm when you go there now, I mean, this is an awful lot of destruction is almost every houses damaged or collapsed. And now when you walk around that it's surrounded with with marked minefields. The dirt roads have red painted bricks along them marking out and safe passage. Then you have these, you know, the skull-and-crossbone signs that you would imagine marking a minefield and every now and then you'll see a yellow painted by of signed which shows an idea is actually being discovered. One of these homemade minds. If people re returned. People returned home. I mean, some there is still I mean across Iraq from the ISIS period and conflicts before I mean, that's a height. There was something like four million people who were displaced many of the one thousand displaced Iraqis living in this camp was to flee now forced to leave the Iraqi government closes camps for people displaced by years of war. Consider these days. I think the latest figures I saw is about one point one point nine million people so not everyone's returned and into areas late Shahada were which were on the front lines. I mean, the return of being much more limited than say, the the center of the city. I mean, people are still living in other places PTO back in falutin now because of this growing issue with homemade explosive devices, and they're they're a big part of why people are not returning to the Hanes say what are these devices? Like, I mean, I I came across one of these things personally enough guy. Anniston around two thousand and ten I mean, typically what you would find is like a plastic jerrycan, which either had cooking oil or some other thing incited thought stuffed with explosives. I mean, what's really shocking about these things is the cold voyeur antipasto minds that you have a few hundred grams of explosive center, it's enough to take your foot off these things can have kilos of explosives, and and and quite dirty explosive. So if you stuck on one of these things unsurvivable your light needs to suffer multiple petitions, you could lose all your limbs..

News from typically rookie city. I mean, it's very flat. It kind of runs into the desert. It's kind of a rundown place with this sort of industrial area of of little metal workshops and things like that new flows of mosques nitsa very religious place. It's sort of prides itself in its hospitality. But also says good reputations. Having been one of those places that quite a long time. It's been dangerous before on this. Visit what was the situation like when you were last there? The last time I was which was at the beginning of two thousand and four I think situation was guessing worse and worse. It was getting to be a place that was very difficult to visit. I mean, we run into some people who didn't wish us very well. So we left in in quite a hurry. And wish you L in what way? Oh, there were men with guns who wants to come and talk to us. And I mean, we were fortunate we we were able to leave. But it was it was quite a quite a frightening experience. It was just over ninety minutes. Gone. President Bush's deadline for Saddam Hussein to leave Iraq that US warships and planes launched.

Faluji became more and more restive those an incident in which some demonstrators were shot by US forces. Iraqi blood spilt time in days, flew to dead and fourteen injured after US troops opened fire on anti-american demonstrators. Ironically, the shooting happened at a much protesting gates to the deaths of thirty rock is killed on Monday. It became one of those places. You know, the the insurgency initially started and took off from. I mean, I think I lost visited trip. Probably around a week. After the American contracts have been killed in the city and bodies hung from one of the bridges over the river. There. We're going to begin with Iraq this evening, four American civilians were killed there today, and sometimes happens the cameras were there for the gruesome aftermath, the four men were from that period. It's kind of this complex history of citing at times people inside the city, citing with the the original insurgents than Al Qaeda figures arrived in the.
