^^^Idiotic gunslingers for hire...I think it's a fringe group within the Taliban...I don't think the Taliban as a whole will be on-board with this agenda...most likely won't get off the ground...frivolous plan...scare tactics...remember when they said they had 200,000 ISIS fighters in neighboring Syria ready to ransack south Lebanon at a moment's notice?

@Eddie Mecca The U.S. and Co. created the Taliban to begin with and have now placed them back in power. The Taliban’s ties and actions disprove your assertion.

Salam this is another propaganda warfare against Iran for distraction mind of people from real issue which has been releasing of $6 billion worth of Iranian assets in South Korea which after that Zionist-Anti Iran medias in all ranks have started yelling from pain so then they have tried to spread such fake propaganda in order to that they can distracts minds of people by spreading false news about this false offer to Taliban .

Quote

Amid reports that a potential deal could be worked out between the two countries that would lead to release of prisoners and assets, certain US politicians have launched another wave of anti-Iran campaigns by attacking Biden for his policy on Iran as the US nears a presidential election in 2024.

 

Quote

Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis has tweeted that the release of $6 billion worth of Iranian assets in South Korea would be a ransom payment that will help Iran build nuclear weapons, support terrorism, oppress the Iranian people, and assist Russia. He also claimed that Biden’s appeasement and weakness embolden Iran to attack the US and allies, adding that Biden is shamefully caving to Iran’s blackmail and extortion.

Senator Tom Cotton, a Republican in Arkansas, released a statement and said that President Biden should stop dancing to Iran’s tune and should start responding firmly and decisively to their aggression, he added.

Former Vice President Mike Pence alleged: While I welcome the release of American hostages, the American people should know that Biden has authorized the largest ransom payment in American history to the officials in Tehran.

In an interview with The Jerusalem Post, former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described the move as "sad and dangerous", claiming: Releasing $6 billion for Tehran, just so that American hostages can go to another type of prison, is a terrible deal. Iran should not benefit from taking American hostages.

It's a typical tactic gambling by America which after a great loss makes too much noise & spreads false claims in order to hide it's great loss in hope of wining in next round.

The comments come amid growing debates over the administration’s approach to foreign policy and national security.

DeSantis’s tweet accuses Biden of rewarding Iran for its alleged hostage-taking incidents, a move he claims could potentially incentivize further acts of hostage-taking.

“Biden is shamefully caving to Iran’s blackmail and extortion,” DeSantis added. “Rewarding Iran for taking Americans hostage incentivizes more hostage-taking.”

The governor’s sentiments reflect concerns within certain circles that the payment lacks transparency and accountability, potentially setting a dangerous precedent.

 

Quote

The governor’s tweet also addresses the perceived obsession with “disastrous deals” that he contends endanger national security.

He calls for a shift towards a stance of “maximum pressure” to counter Iran’s perceived malign influence.

Regarding BRICS and the supposed abandonment of the USD, the following article is quite instructive and dispels the common notion that BRICS opposes Western-led, American-fronted globalisation. A vital excerpt:

Quote

Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana said boosting local currency usage among the NDB's members will also be on the agenda, with the aim of de-risking the impact of foreign exchange fluctuations rather than de-dollarisation. ... "The bank's operating currency is dollars for a very specific reason: U.S. dollars are where the largest pools of liquidity are," he said. … Of more than $30 billion in loans approved by the NDB, two-thirds were in dollars, an April investor presentation showed.

^ So BRICS’s leading financial institution is completely dependent on transactions in USD. Furthermore, rising interest rates increase the indebtedness of several members, in an era of inflation, hobbled growth, and sanctions.

Unsurprisingly, BRICS is fully on board with neoliberalism, “sustainability” (Agenda 2030), digital ID, vaccines, and so on—the totality of globalism, in essence.

  • There has been a drop in the dollar’s share of central banks’ FX reserves, but dollar usage has held up very well in commerce, private assets, debt issuance, and generally on the global FX market.
  • The rising usage of alternative currencies does not seem to be threatening the dollar but rather increasing the competition among the regional currencies amid fragmentation of the trade and capital flows.
  • No currency has made any inroads to the dollar’s pre-eminent status as the issuance currency of choice.

Overall, we do not see any conclusive evidence that the dollar is on the path of structural decline at this point.
