The recent developments unfolding in Afghanistan clearly display that the Mujahidin of Islamic Emirate are flexing their military muscles and are rapidly retaking areas from the mercenary militias and gunmen once occupied by the foreign invaders. It has become evident from this year’s (Azm) advance that were the invader’s to stop supporting their mercenary forces, the Taliban per se would swallow the Kabul regime in a single bite and it wont take years rather a mere few months for the Taliban to spread their wings and bring the entire country under the control!
These are not meagre hollow claims rather it is an undisputed truth acknowledged even by the invaders and it’s propped up administration. Now that the time of their rule has come to an end and their souls have reached their throats (time of death), they do not see any benefit in trying to hide this reality.
The United Nations declared recently: Taliban strength is highest since 2001. The review by the United Nations concludes: The Taliban insurgency has spread through more of Afghanistan than at any point since 2001.
A report by ‘The New York Times’ concludes that the Taliban’s strength is at the same level as in 2001, according to the data compiled by the United Nations as well as interviews with numerous local officials.
According to the local officials in the affected areas, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan over the past two weeks has evacuated four of its 13 provincial offices across the country.
This data, compiled in early September — even before the fall of Kunduz — showed that United Nations security officials had already rated the threat level in about half of the country’s administrative districts as either “high” or “extreme”, and this graph has only increased as the Taliban have begun mounting more daring attacks throughout the country, from north to south and east to west.
According to this report by ‘The New York Times’, the United Nations has not released this assessment publically but routinely shares it privately with countries in the international coalition forces in Afghanistan.
‘The New York Times’ adds that this report seems at odds with the assessment by its American commander, Gen. John F. Campbell, in his testimony to Congress last week where he stated that “The Afghan security forces have displayed courage and resilience in face of Taliban and they’re still holding and retain control of Kabul, all provincial capitals and nearly all of the district centers…….”.
The complete fall of Kunduz as well as liberation of large areas and strategic points in Takhar, Badakhshan, Baghlan, Saripul, Faryab, Ghazni and other provinces is nothing ordinary or mere talk rather these are huge military achievements and advancements in complete conflict with the assessments of the international powers over the past 14 years, shaking the throne of America and her allies, throwing their 14 year efforts into the abyss and crushing their wishful dreams.
After the brutal American bombing campaign which failed to differentiate between military and civilian, ending with the ruthless bombing a ‘Médecins Sans Frontières’ hospital and killing over 80 doctors, patients and their family members, indiscriminately targeting the citizens of Kunduz and carrying out numerous other transgressions, the leader of Islamic Emirate ordered his Mujahideen to withdraw from the city center into the outlying rural areas and have sympathy on its nation.
The withdrawal of Mujahideen from Kunduz city is a planned maneuver just as written in a statement release by the Emirate, indicating it to a be a Jihadi tactic and for safeguarding civilian life and property, clearly displaying the love of Mujahideen and their new leader with the Muslim nation. This statement was also warmly received by the invaders in the White House and this (Black Obama’s White House) attested to the fact that the goals of the Islamic Emirate are peaceful and carries a message of good intentions for the nations of the world. It also proved the false nature of the slogan ‘terrorists!!!’ heaped upon the Taliban by the foreign invaders.
The statement of Islamic Emirate said:
“The Islamic Emirate took into consideration the military situation and the fruitless cost of corporeal and material losses to Mujahideen in the protracted battle in defense of Kunduz city and therefore ordered its Mujahideen to withdraw from the main square markets and government buildings to the outlying rural areas of the city in order to reinforce their defense lines and reserve their strength for effective future operations.
We reassure the world and our Mujahid nation that just as the Mujahideen of Kunduz repelled the American and hireling Special Forces backed by air power and made them repeatedly flee towards the terminals of Kunduz airbase, they can at this very moment bring Kunduz city back under their control and once again force the enemy out with the help of Allah Almighty.
Withdrawal from Kunduz city bazaar and government buildings is done purely for the higher interests of Jihad, the main goal of which was to secure the population from air raids and protect the human and material cost of Mujahideen from waste in a protracted defensive battle.”
Fortunately today these same invaders have been compelled to acknowledge the Taliban as a military force in complete opposition to the previous assessments and are unable to label them ‘terrorists’ because they cannot provide evidence otherwise.
And there is no doubt left that despite suffering huge losses and dispersion, the Taliban remain a potent force which today is again being accepted by the United Nations and America, with both acknowledging that the Taliban strength is at the same level as in 2001. Today they have turned back to being a force with capabilities of taking over a militarily strategic provincial capital like Kunduz within a few hours and can bring the country’s northern parts once deemed safe by the Americans under the shadow of their swords!
The anticipation of the people has increased many folds and the moment has dawned closer when Islamic Shariah shall rule over the land as the infidel invaders and their lackeys pack their bags. A day when this oppressed nation shall see the fruits of their sacrifices and hopes of the martyrs become a reality with their own weary eyes!!!
