Putin & Trump loves to blame the Muslims, meaning those people who believes in the Islam religion, for today’s refugee & ISIL terror crisis. Muslim lives mostly in Middle East and related, with also many in Asia and scattered globally also.
Putin is currently off cracking down on Muslims in Russia and Trump is trying to stop people from many Muslim countries, except Muslim countries he has business interest in regardless if people there involved with terror or not, out of America.
Trump hates Muslim people to the point, one wonder does he hate Muslim because lots of them involved in terror, like ISIL, or does he just hate Muslim because Trump just took “White Supremacist” who conducted lots of terror, off the watch list. In fact, terror from white people, i.e mass shootings in America, causes much more death to Americans than terror caused by Muslims.
And politicians globally in all sorts of countries, loves to blame this and that politician and political parties, for making the crisis worse and not solving it.
So there are lots & lots of blaming, theory & lots of insanity going on as related to this current wave of global instability, from terrorism & refugee crisis.
The blame is anyone from Reagan, to Bush Family, Blair to Obama, like you name it, globally any leader of important and consequence & they are probably blamed somehow.
& while I understand, there is the “Now & Current” to be won & lost, relating to direction, of politics into the future short-term movement of time into the future, but if u curious, where it all started, the root to the bombing on 9/11 that have propelled the planet to this point, with massive destabilization in Middle East ISIS & refugee, please remember some fundamental “Historical Facts & Reality”.
I have cut & paste, a period of time, focusing on Afghanistan, Socialist revolution enter into a time of Islamic revolution at the end of this article & reading the section, can give anyone, understanding, where this current global crisis, I mentioned, originated from.
Again, this current wave, of global destabilization, with issues such as immigration & terrorism, “Original Cause & Sin” was USSR invasion of Afghanistan & for quite a while now, the global information system, is a struggle between “Truth & Facts” & disinformation based on
& propaganda, & concerning those white males, who are “White Racist Male” in Europe, America & wherever globally the “Reality” of the situation, is that global “Mobility” like ships, automobiles, airplanes, mobile phones, internet & so many other factors such as terrorism & refugee crisis, driving humanity & people forwards, with serious critical questions of concepts, like multiculturalism, diversity, inclusivity tolerance, information sharing, understanding, friendship & other such force, all started in Afghanistan, way back.
Globally, currently, such as the Brexit exhibited, there is a strain of “White Racist Male Power” that flirts with “Neo-Fascism” driving some politics in Western Countries”
This comes also at a time “Globalization” is being attack as a failure and “isolationism” is being offered in its place.
However, globally, “Mobility” has never been greater, as can be seen from a variety of factors such as free flow of information through the internet or the flee flow of people & goods, through borders of countries.
Of course, those “Racist White Male” & their Neo Fascism, can attack that “Global Mobility” such as in Brexit, & relating force, I mention, like multiculturalism, diversity & inclusions, that “Global Mobility” brings.
All I hope is that , these White Racist Male” does not end up, taking the entire planet’s population, back to live in the “Caves” again
From the wikipedia on Afghanistan:
Marxist revolution and Soviet war
In April 1978, the communist People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan (PDPA) seized power in Afghanistan in the Saur Revolution. Within months, opponents of the communist government launched an uprising in eastern Afghanistan that quickly expanded into a civil warwaged by guerrilla mujahideen against government forces countrywide. The Pakistani government provided these rebels with covert training centers, while the Soviet Union sent thousands of military advisers to support the PDPA government. Meanwhile, increasing friction between the competing factions of the PDPA — the dominant Khalq and the more moderate Parcham — resulted in the dismissal of Parchami cabinet members and the arrest of Parchami military officers under the pretext of a Parchami coup.
In September 1979, Nur Muhammad Taraki was assassinated in a coup within the PDPA orchestrated by fellow Khalq member Hafizullah Amin, who assumed the presidency. Distrusted by the Soviets, Amin was assassinated by Soviet special forces in December 1979. A Soviet-organized government, led by Parcham’s Babrak Karmal but inclusive of both factions, filled the vacuum. Soviet troops were deployed to stabilize Afghanistan under Karmal in more substantial numbers, although the Soviet government did not expect to do most of the fighting in Afghanistan. As a result, however, the Soviets were now directly involved in what had been a domestic war in Afghanistan. The PDPA prohibited usury, declared equality of the sexes, and introduced women to political life.
The United States had been supporting anti-Soviet Afghan mujahideen and foreign “Afghan Arab” fighters through Pakistan’s ISI as early as mid-1979 (see CIA activities in Afghanistan). Billions in cash and weapons, which included over two thousand FIM-92 Stinger surface-to-air missiles, were provided by the United States and Saudi Arabia to Pakistan.
The Soviet war in Afghanistan resulted in the deaths of over 1 million Afghans, mostly civilians, and the creation of about 6 million refugees who fled Afghanistan, mainly to Pakistan and Iran. Faced with mounting international pressure and numerous casualties, the Soviets withdrew in 1989 but continued to support Afghan PresidentMohammad Najibullah until 1992.
From 1989 until 1992, Najibullah’s government tried to solve the ongoing civil war with economic and military aid, but without Soviet troops on the ground. Najibullah tried to build support for his government by portraying his government as Islamic, and in the 1990 constitution the country officially became an Islamic state and all references of communism were removed. Nevertheless, Najibullah did not win any significant support, and with the dissolution of the Soviet Union in December 1991, he was left without foreign aid. This, coupled with the internal collapse of his government, led to his ousting from power in April 1992. After the fall of Najibullah’s government in 1992, the post-communist Islamic State of Afghanistan was established by the Peshawar Accord, a peace and power-sharing agreement under which all the Afghan parties were united in April 1992, except for the Pakistani supported Hezb-e Islami of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. Hekmatyar started a bombardment campaign against the capital city Kabul, which marked the beginning of a new phase in the war.

Due to the sudden initiation of the war, working government departments, police units, and a system of justice and accountability for the newly created Islamic State of Afghanistan did not have time to form. Atrocities were committed by individuals of the different armed factions while Kabul descended into lawlessness and chaos. Because of the chaos, some leaders increasingly had only nominal control over their (sub-)commanders. For civilians there was little security from murder, rape, and extortion. An estimated 25,000 people died during the most intense period of bombardment by Hekmatyar’s Hezb-i Islami and the Junbish-i Milli forces of Abdul Rashid Dostum, who had created an alliance with Hekmatyar in 1994. Half a million people fled Afghanistan.
Southern and eastern Afghanistan were under the control of local commanders such as Gul Agha Sherzai and others. In 1994, the Taliban(a movement originating from Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-run religious schools for Afghan refugees in Pakistan) also developed in Afghanistan as a political-religious force. The Taliban first took control of southern Afghanistan in 1994 and forced the surrender of dozens of local Pashtun leaders.
In late 1994, forces of Ahmad Shah Massoud held on to Kabul. Rabbani’s government took steps to reopen courts, restore law and order, and initiate a nationwide political process with the goal of national consolidation and democratic elections. Massoud invited Taliban leaders to join the process but they refused.
Taliban Emirate and Northern Alliance
The Taliban’s early victories in late 1994 were followed by a series of defeats that resulted in heavy losses. The Taliban attempted to capture Kabul in early 1995 but were repelled by forces under Massoud. In September 1996, as the Taliban, with military support from Pakistan and financial support from Saudi Arabia, prepared for another major offensive, Massoud ordered a full retreat from Kabul.The Taliban seized Kabul in the same month and established the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. They imposed a strict form of Sharia, similar to that found in Saudi Arabia. According to Physicians for Human Rights (PHR), “no other regime in the world has methodically and violently forced half of its population into virtual house arrest, prohibiting them on pain of physical punishment from showing their faces, seeking medical care without a male escort, or attending school.”
After the fall of Kabul to the Taliban, Massoud and Dostum formed the Northern Alliance. The Taliban defeated Dostum’s forces during theBattles of Mazar-i-Sharif (1997–98). Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff, Pervez Musharraf, began sending thousands of Pakistanis to help the Taliban defeat the Northern Alliance. From 1996 to 2001, the al-Qaeda network of Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri was also operating inside Afghanistan. This and the fact that around one million Afghans were internally displaced made the United States worry. From 1990 to September 2001, around 400,000 Afghans died in the internal mini-wars.
On 9 September 2001, Massoud was assassinated by two Arab suicide attackers in Panjshir province of Afghanistan. Two days later, the September 11 attacks were carried out in the United States. The US government suspected Osama bin Laden as the perpetrator of the attacks, and demanded that the Taliban hand him over. After refusing to comply, the October 2001 Operation Enduring Freedom was launched. During the initial invasion, US and UK forces bombed al-Qaeda training camps. The United States began working with the Northern Alliance to remove the Taliban from power.
