Congratulations to MVL, and to Grand Chess Tour winner Wesley So! As the saying goes, if you can make it in St. Louis, you can make it anywhere! twitter.com/GrandChessTour…
There is a world of hope between doing nothing and doing the wrong thing, or even doing the right thing badly. Giving up on US leadership & the ideals of freedom is not a solution. There is no vacuum, only apathy and excuses.
It's just as stupid to say that Trump would have done differently or better, of course. But Biden binding himself, the US and the world to a deal with terrorists and rushing to fulfill it is a disaster of many dimensions, not just today.
One reason people supported Biden in 2020, me included, was to reverse many of Trump's bad decisions. This is why Biden blaming Trump's deal with the Taliban for this debacle makes no sense.
This is a very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and tough-minded piece by Bob Kagan. Read the whole thing. washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/…

#Lukashenko kidnaps journalists, tortures dissidents, and terrorizes the people of #Belarus. So why is the #IMF funding his reign of terror? read more in today's newsletter: secure.everyaction.com/p/Wyv1dnUlg0y2…

“According to researchers, there are strong links between Isis-K and the Haqqani network, which in turn is closely linked to the Taliban. The man now in charge of security in Kabul is Khalil Haqqani who has had a $5m (£3.6m) bounty on his head.” bbc.com/news/world-asi…

Even though top spot in the 2021 @GrandChessTour is decided, the fight for 3rd between @Shakhmamedyarov and @FabianoCaruana is still ongoing for today's final round of the #SinquefieldCup. Only the top 3 finishers get a bonus prize so $25k still on the line here! twitter.com/GrandChessTour…

Looks like I missed it earlier but do check out this staggering report about how CCP is hunting down Uyghurs in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Now, I know you think this is not relevant to you but this is very much the case of first they came for Uyghurs. uhrp.org/report/nets-ca…

Please read. Political prisoners anywhere should be unacceptable, marking their regimes as untouchable. Instead, it's business as usual with Putin's mafia state as Navalny sits in prison. twitter.com/HRF/status/143…

The Biden administration’s defenses of its Afghanistan policy ring hollow, @KoriSchake argues. The current chaos was avoidable. trib.al/AO8rzEW

The CDU hoped picking a prototypical "gray man in a suit" in Laschet would get them through in a crisis. But it seems Germans realize that a crisis is an opportunity for boldness and change, not a failing status quo.
Good. Perhaps politics is a dog and pony show, and maybe Europe is going to the dogs, but it's all better than Laschet auditioning to be Putin's new poodle! euronews.com/2021/08/24/ger…

Happy Independence Day to the great nation of Ukraine 🇺🇦! 30 years of fighting for freedom against thugs and dictators, an inspiration to others yearning to be free—and to the many who take democracy for granted.
The Crimea Platform is Ukraine’s diplomatic initiative aimed at bringing global attention back to the issue of Russian-occupied Crimea and ultimately ending the occupation of Ukraine’s peninsula. buff.ly/3B1Ja9S

Anything can get a Russian journalist designated a foreign agent. You sneeze — and you’re a foreign agent. What’s especially depressing is that going to an international conference can make you a foreign agent. They’re cutting Russian journalists off from the rest of the world.

"Let us take that lesson to call things as they are. Lies are lies. Murder is murder. Dictators are dictators. And just as we cannot allow history to be revised, we must not allow the distortion of what is happening now, right in front of our eyes."
"There are new Molotov-Ribbentrop pacts going on all around us today, and they are taking place out in the open, not in secret. Putin believes the West will abandon principle for profit, and so far it’s hard to say that he’s wrong."

I’ve been calling out these double-standards for years. Privacy and security are hotly defended in the free world, but US tech giants cooperate with dictatorships all over, often aiding in repression. twitter.com/LisaShymko/sta…

This interview by @bbclysedoucet with @BSaraway as he leaves #Afghanistan will have been painful for both. Bilal is one of the country’s brightest and best journalists, departing with no idea when he might be able to return. 💔Z

A+. This is at least as important as the loss of US and Western credibility. If there is no positive model for young men to change their lives and the world, and they see ISIL or Taliban success, many seeking change, or just action, will take darker, violent paths. twitter.com/iyad_elbaghdad…
Instead of doing everything possible to support Ukraine's democracy and economy, Europe is happy to take Russian money & gas and use Ukraine as a buffer & bargaining chip against Putin's authoritarian expansionism. Immoral and short-sighted.
Ukraine has fought bravely against Putin's invasion, and largely alone. Now being squeezed by Germany, the EU & US to make concessions and suffer in silence. What would guarantees be worth after so much betrayal already? dw.com/en/merkel-in-u…
