“Real danger” of rouge ISIS terror attack on Kabul airport

Published

on

As an enemy of both the Taliban and the US, ISIS-K is threatening to launch a devastating terror attack as thousands flee Kabul airport

US intelligence and military analysts say that ISIS-K is threatening to target Kabul Airport with a bomb-laden truck, suicide bombers and mortar strikes against the airfield.

With the increasing threat of a terror attack and demands by the Taliban for the US to leave by the end of August, Biden is scrambling to hasten evacuation efforts.

“Every day we’re on the ground is another day we know that ISIS-K is seeking to target the airport and attack both U.S. and allied forces and innocent civilians,” Biden said.

Biden’s national security adviser says terror threat is “acute” and “persistent”

Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan says that American officials are taking all possible steps to thwart potential attacks.

As a result, the Biden administration has struck an unlikely temporary truce with the Taliban to defend against an ISIS-K attack.

ISIS leaders have already denounced the Taliban takeover, saying that the group is too ‘progressive’.

US, UK and allied forces exposed to terror attack

US and NATO troops remain particularly exposed to an attack, needing to rely on the Taliban to ensure a safe passage to Kabul Airport.

The US embassy in Kabul has advised US citizens to “avoid airport gates at this time unless you receive individual instructions from a US government representative to do so”.

The UK Foreign office has also updated its travel advice for UK nationals:

“The security situation in Afghanistan remains volatile. There is an ongoing and high threat of terrorist attack. Do not travel to Kabul Hamid Karzai International Airport. If you are in the area of the airport, move away to a safe location and await further advice.”

The Great Resignation vs. The Great Burnout

Published

on

As employees recover from the height of the pandemic, the Great Resignation has come to light

 
The pandemic saw the term ‘the great resignation’ coined as thousands of people resigned from their jobs across the U.S. in 2021 and 2022.

Karin Reed, the author of ‘Suddenly Hybrid said the great resignation was a period of employees taking control of their future.

“A lot of people realised in their current environment they were not happy with what they were doing with their job. They chose to vote with their feet and go elsewhere,

In other parts of the world, a spike in resignations was not reported.

However, a higher degree of workers began reporting post-Covid burnout, as they made a return to the office.

“There’s been a blurring of the lines. You have work that’s not confined by a physical space.

“Instead of closing the computer and walk away, our computer is in the next room.”
