Afghanistan papers detail US dysfunction: 'We did not know what we were doing'
A key theme of the trove of documents published this week was the lack of coherence in Washington's approach to Afghanistan from the outsetIn the midst of Barack Obama's much vaunted military surge against the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2010, Hayam Mohammed, an elder from Panjwai near the Pakistani border confronted an officer from the US 101st airborne who had come into his village."You walk here during the day," the elder told the soldier bitterly as the Observer listened. "But at night [the Taliban] come bringing night letters" - threats targeting those collaborating with foreign forces.That surge, which like so many other initiatives in Afghanistan's long war was celebrated as a huge success, today serves only as a grim reminder of the deception and failure revealed in the explosive Afghanistan papers published by the Washington Post this week.Comprising more than 600 interviews with key insiders collected confidentially by the Office of Special Inspector General for Reconstruction in Afghanistan [Sigar], and published after a three-year court battle, the trove has been compared in significance to the Pentagon Papers, the secret Department of Defense history of the Vietnam war leaked in 1971.Like that secret history, the Afghanistan Papers' accumulated oral history depicts a war mired in failure - in sharp contrast to the "misleading" story told to the US and British publics by officials in massaged figures and over-optimistic assessments.But even if that deception has

Qatar says there has been 'small progress' in resolving Gulf dispute
Qatar's foreign minister said on Saturday there has been small progress to resolve a 2-1/2 year dispute between the Gulf state and its neighbors. Asked whether there was progress at the Gulf Cooperation Council summit held last week, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani told Reuters that there has been "small progress, just a little progress". Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic and trade links with Qatar in June 2017, accusing it of backing terrorism.

UN climate talks unravelling, face failure
A UN climate summit in Madrid risked collapsing Saturday after all-night negotiations between countries left them more divided than ever over on how to fight global warming and pay for its ravages. Diplomats from rich nations, emerging giants and the world's poorest countries -- each for their own reasons -- found fault in a draft agreement put forward by host Chile in a botched attempt to strike common ground. Faced with five-alarm warnings from science, deadly extreme weather made worse by climate change, and weekly strikes by millions of young people, negotiations in Madrid were under pressure to send a clear signal that governments are willing to double down in tackling the crisis.

Why is the president of the United States cyberbullying a 16-year-old girl?
What it says to girls is: no matter what you do, no matter how much you achieve, powerful men will try to cut you downThe morning after election day 2016, I got a call from a girls' school in New York where I was scheduled to speak. "We have to reschedule," said a representative from the school. "The girls are too upset."Girls across the country were upset when Trump was elected, but not simply on partisan grounds. They were upset because Donald Trump was a bully, a cyberbully, and he bullied girls and young women like them - women like the former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, who revealed that, when she was 19, he called her "Miss Piggy," a dig at her weight.In a New York Times poll in the run-up to the election, nearly half of girls aged 14 to 17 said that Trump's comments about women affected the way they think about their bodies. Only 15% of girls said they would vote for him if they could.And now Trump has a new target for his bullying: Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old environmental activist. Thunberg seems to be really making Trump upset, without meaning to. She doesn't fit into any of his ideas of how girls are supposed to act. She isn't trying to be a contestant in one of his beauty pageants. She's too busy trying to get world leaders like him to do something about the climate crisis. She's too occupied by giving speeches at places like the UN - where Trump was laughed at, when he gave a speech in 2018, and Thunberg was met with respect, despite slamming the entire body

How much do climate fluctuations matter for global crop yields?
The El Niño-Southern Oscillation has been responsible for widespread, simultaneous crop failures in recent history, according to a new study. This finding runs counter to a central pillar of the global agriculture system, which assumes that crop failures in geographically distant breadbasket regions such as the United States, China and Argentina are unrelated. The results also underscore the potential opportunity to manage such climate risks, which can be predicted using seasonal climate forecasts.
