It is clear that the Mujahideens’ strong military initiative that has resulted in the siege of five provincial capitals –namely Konduz, Baghlan, Farah, Uruzgan and Helmand – has caused great anxiety within American military and political circles.
Reports suggest that the American commander for Afghanistan – Nicholson – has made several tours to Konduz, Helmand, Farah and Uruzgan over the past week. He held numerous consultations with the demoralized military and political leaders of the regime. He assured them of American support, pointing out that American Special Forces and aircraft were fighting in support of the regime, and tried to raise their morale and urged them to fight harder against the Taliban.
However it is quite evident that with the might of Allah Almighty the Taliban have completely routed the regime’s forces and no amount of ‘prep’ talking will be able to raise their morale in Helmand and Konduz ever again.
This is due to the fact that in both Helmand and Konduz Americans have large military bases and personnel. Their Special Forces and their aircraft fought shoulder to shoulder with their internal allies and used aircraft to attack the Mujahideen. In addition, the American’s sent extra troops to these two theaters and even sent special advisors to assess the situation. Moreover their ex-Communist regime allies filled the airwaves with false promises of a swift and decisive victory. Their ex-Mujahideen allies gave religious ‘fatwas’ to defend the cities and begged for heavier bombardment. The American-owned regime media cried baseless accusations of civilian massacres and mass murders.
Yet despite all the military might and propaganda of the enemy, the Mujahideens’ strikes were so swift that it knocked the enemy of its balance, seized the initiative, routed the enemy forces and captured their emptied bases and military hardware.
There is no doubt that the Mujahideen number less than their enemies, and they have fewer and inferior equipment compared with the regime and its foreign masters. Be that as it may, the Mujahideen are nonetheless blessed with steely resilience, high morale and, most importantly, the aid of their Lord. With these few numbers and meager weaponry they shall, God willing, destroy and rout these debased auxiliaries and the demoralized foreign forces.
