Post via Islamic Emirate
The commander general of foreign invading forces in Afghanistan, General Campbell, declared in a conference that the only option left for Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate is to surrender.
What a foolish and ridiculous perception and a juvenile approach he has!! The only benefit of these expressions were that his immaturity and idiocy were revealed.
General Campbell expressed his views while he has completely failed in his assignment for Afghanistan and has been replaced by his successor. Numerous foreign troops and his trained internal forces were either killed or crippled in the successful attacks of Mujahidin during his tenure. General Campbell, though apparently he looks well, in fact has lost his mental equilibrium in the fierce attacks of Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate. He does not realize how to conceal his failure and embarrassment therefore his expressions are sometimes inconsistent with the prevailing realities.
General Campbell, while uttering the above ridiculous assertions, forgets the American involvement in this futile war inside Afghanistan for the last fifteen years. Despite tens of thousands of their soldiers, fully equipped with the most sophisticated weapons and advanced technology, failed to subdue the courageous Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate. Now that the number of foreign invading forces has decreased, the internal mercenary forces have lost their morale and Mujahidin are stronger and influential than ever before, how can he justify his claim that Mujahidin will have to surrender?
If General Campbell is not well acquainted with the brilliant history of Afghanistan, he should at least go through the previous assignments of his predecessors (generals, commanders and ordinary soldiers). He should consult General Franks, General McChrystal and David Petraeus. And ask them about their achievements and failures in Afghanistan. He would definitely come to realize the arrogance with which his predecessors came, suffered colossal financial losses and casualties and eventually left, deeply embarrassed and humiliated.
The brilliant history of Afghanistan is fraught with the names of coward and wicked foreign commanders defeated here and the name of General Campbell might be added in the history of our ongoing heroic and successful Jihadi struggle in the following terms:
‘General Campbell, who failed to pacify the Jihadi resistance of the valiant people of Afghanistan despite tens of thousands of brutal foreign invading soldiers at his disposal. Thousands of savage soldiers were killed and eventually he left Afghanistan as an utterly failed and unsuccessful commander.
Afghanistan has never been subdued by any of the foreign invaders in its history. The freedom loving people of our country have always munificently sacrificed their lives and wealth to preserve their sovereignty and values. They were never subjugated by the foreign invaders or occupying forces.
And the present day Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate have literally proved, in the real sense of the word, that they will follow the footsteps of their heroic forefathers. They are determined to continue their Jihadi struggle against the brutal foreign invaders as well as their internal mercenary forces unless and until the sovereignty of our beloved country is restored and Islamic Sharia implement.
General Campbell and his patrons should realize that Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate can never be subdued by force or by temptations. Were it possible, why would he have left Afghanistan like his several predecessors, failed and humiliated!!!
