The Islamic Emirate’s recent attacks in Kabul and around the country have shown that the Mujahideen can still effectively target the foreign occupiers whenever they want. After the attacks in Kabul the American occupiers faced yet another tragedy in Helmand province.
The American’s officially announced an end to their combat role in Afghanistan more than a year ago. Yet on the ground the war is still very much raging on. American occupying forces continue to raid Afghan homes in various parts of the country and violate the sensibilities of our people.
Two weeks ago, American Special Forces arrived at Marjah’s Chur Charahi area to assist the embattled Kabul regime forces. They attacked the Mujahideen positions through air strikes and artillery bombardment. After that the Mujahideen forces ferociously counter-attacked their positions, causing casualties within the foreign ranks. At that point an American helicopter arrived to help the ground troops but it came under heavy fire – and its efforts to scramble up from the ground – the helicopter came in contact with a wall and crashed. This incident caused heavy losses amongst the passengers inside.
After this incident reports arrived that the American forces had evacuated Marjah district and left the Kabul forces to their plight.
The recent casualties amongst America’s elite forces had a profound impact on that nation. The Daily Beast published a scathing article titled “Afghan War Returns to Blood and Shadows”. The subheading read “The death of a U.S. service member and injuries to two more are shrouded in mystery”. The article went on its criticism and even accused the Pentagon of refusing to explain their mission in an increasingly secretive conflict.
The White House’s spokesperson – Josh Ernest – addressed the recent American casualties by stating that “Afghanistan continues to be a dangerous place”. The spokesman tried to justify the recent casualties by arguing that the American forces had to continue to put their lives at risk in Afghanistan in order to protect America’s security at home. Yet he failed to elaborate how the conflict in Afghanistan has made America safer.
To this day no Afghan has gone to that country to carry out attacks nor have they killed any Americans outside of Afghanistan. If Afghans have killed any Americans it is only those that came to our country and tried to colonize our nation. Even the White House will have to admit that Afghans only to continue to fight the American’s as long as they occupy our country. The moment they leave our sacred land, we will bid them farewell by saying “good riddance”.
