[The following news, that possibly half of those either killed or detained in the operation, proves that the Khorog "crackdown" was totally an American event. The deadly military assault was purely a demonstration project, staged to convince the rulers of the other four "Stans" of the dangers posed by a post 2014 scenario in Afghanistan to the neighboring states. The bloody operation was a quiet American appeal to turn away from the Russian/Chinese dominated SCO defense arrangement, toward a more pressing American Afghan agenda. It was to put the fear of "narcoterrorism" into their souls, so that they might tremble at a resonant frequency to the Imperial controllers. So that their thinking will be thereafter tuned to the grand production that America has put together, a few Afghans and Tajiks have been sacrificed on the satanic altars of the New World Empire.
To those who protest that this is a Russian event, staged by the Kremlin to force America to reconsider the 2014 withdrawal, I must counter, that Moscow understands that America and NATO are not leaving in 2014, so why would they need to send a bloody, subtle message to Washington? President Rahmon is dancing to Obama's tune. Does that mean that the Tajik overlord has become deaf to Putin's piping?
Can such a ploy really influence Afghanistan's neighbors to take responsibility for cooling down the Afghan war, in order to facilitate an actual American redeployment from Afghanistan deep into Central Asia? Washington's grand "Silk Road" strategy depends on this hand-off of authority in Afghanistan and Central Asia, as well as in the key state, Pakistan. Governments must buy into the bullshit that Hillary is peddling and become partners to the United States and NATO. In exchange for the right to pipeline CA's resources, America builds highways and national security (surveillance) systems to protect their Silky presence. Agreeing to use their armies to help the American "Big Brother" in Afghanistan, makes America's pipe dream possible, as long as everybody stays with the same script. Obama was simply using the government of Tajikistan to heighten awareness of the dangers of a demilitarized Afghanistan, as an offhand way to exert American pressure on Afghanistan's hesitant neighbors, to persuade them that the Taliban are a greater threat to them all than the three dangers (terrorism, separatism and extremism) outlined by NATO's competitor in Central Asia, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).]
DUSHANBE, August 1 2012, Asia-plus — Afghan regional security force commander Qari Wadud has been detained in Afghan Badakhshan in connection with the Khorog events.
Radio Liberty reports officers from the Afghan National Security Agency arrested and took to Kabul Qari Wadud, commander of the security forces in the Shuhada district in Afghan Badakhshan Province. Qari Wadud is reportedly suspected of being involved in the events that took place in Khorog, the capital of Tajikistan’s Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region (GBAO) last week.
Provincial security chief for Afghan Badakhshan Samunwal Sakhidad confirmed this information in an interview with Radio Liberty and noted that Qari Wadud was the first person detained in Afghanistan in connection with the Khorog events. According to him, detention of other persons involved in the recent events in Khorog will be continued.
Samunwal Sakhidad also confirmed that eight nationals of Afghanistan were killed and four others were detained during a special operation carried out by Tajik government forces in Khorog.
We will recall that President Emomali Rahmon reportedly had a telephone conversation with his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai on July 25. The sides expressed concern about the situation in southeastern Tajikistan, in particular in the city of Khorog. In the course of the talks, President Karzai said that the Afghan authorities were sending additional forces to Badakhshan Province and they would stay there until full normalization of the situation on the Tajik-Afghan border.
