Leader of the Taliban, Hibatullah Akhundzada, released a statement to the Afghan people and the world on the occasion of Eid al-Adha also. In his statement Hibatullah asked other governments to not judge the Taliban.
“There is neither harm (in Islamic rules) nor a (Muslim) should commit a harmful act,” Hibatullah said.

Hibatullah also stressed that the Taliban is not interested in harming or operating in any foreign country. The statement clarified the Taliban approach after US president Donald Trump announced the new US plan in the country.
“We urge the regional governments and those of the Islamic world to know our policy and position before announcing any unilateral stance or leveling accusation [against us] and don’t view us from the angle of our enemy. The Islamic Emirate doesn’t have any intention to harm anyone,” Said Hibatullah.
In his statement Hibatullah also claimed that the Taliban only wants “a free, independent and progressive Afghanistan.”
All the US wants is an Afghanistan wracked by violence and with a wrecked infrastructure that they hope will be a thorn in the side of Russia.
They want ISIS/Al Qaeda getting into Russia and other regions destroying them also anyone who could be a possible ally. The US is in it’s death throes they just don’t seem to know it yet.
Yes indeed and the eventual demise ( quickly I hope) will come when the parasitical Zionist elite in the US finally devour each other in their quest for wealth and power. This process has started of course as the banality of US thought ( civilian and government ) travels the well worn path of dying empires.
The courageous few Americans who do speak out in despair of US (Zionist) hegemony will I fear continue to be persecuted with ever increasing vitriol.
Of course this is even more BS, as its clear that for reaching “wealth and power” you have to be cooperative. so the rich and powerful will surely not “devour each other” – instead will make a deal with other rich and powerful people any day.
Past history spanning thousands of years does not support your opinion Lumen.
many ISIS fighers from russain territory. this means: ISIS is already in russia
Afghanistan is very wealthy natural resources speaking. China without fuss or fanfare has made alot of inroads there. Usnato want afghanistan to run like a weeping sore to bother russia like you say but usnato has never stopped wanting those resources. Wanting those resources usnato has blundered in and broken it all to pieces.
Us nato must be gnashing their teeth that the only ones that can pick up the pieces now is china.even russia may have missed out here due to the elements in country that did not want them during their time their in eighties.
Yours is a good analysis. The US wants to control the Rare Earth minerals and drugs of course in Afghanistan. China has also made in roads into Africa by providing desperately needed civilian infrastructure in return for trade agreements . That has pissed off the US as well. All the US does is provide guns to petty dictators in Africa who then loot their own people on behalf of the American Elite.
Yes you are right.africa has been a very quiet success for china and of course established media says nothing. US had the opportunity ro ” build bridges” ,excuse the pun,but chose to act the bully and got nothing apart from a few bases and a shitty failed state in Libya they caused.
