The murderous terrorists attacks followed by reckless revenge drone strikes by the United States resulting in the killing of innocent civilians is sabotaging the elusive peace in Afghanistan.
The reformed Taliban Mk 2 declared inclusive governance under the name of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan promising general amnesty for opposition upholding human rights for all, including women and minorities.
However Islamophobic propaganda to demonise the Taliban continues to derail efforts towards reconciliation amongst Afghans now that the Americans forces have finally left Afghanistan on Monday 31 August 2021.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid declared that the final departure of US forces was a victory for all Afghans.
“We do not have any doubt that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is a free and sovereign nation,” he said promising that Afghanistan will have “working diplomatic relations” with the West, vowing that Afghans “will protect our freedom, independence and Islamic values”.
The large number of casualties from bomb blasts on Thursday 26 August claimed by terrorists affiliated to ISIS included Afghan civilians as well as US military personnel who were facilitating the evacuation out of Afghanistan.
In an address this morning on Friday 27 August, President Biden while commenting on the bombings vowed to retaliate against those responsible.
“To those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone who wishes America harm, know this: We will not forgive. We will not forget,” Biden said.
“We will hunt you down and make you pay. I will defend our interests in our people with every measure at my command,” he further added.
This warning of revenge by Biden has been followed by swift indiscriminate drone attacks by the Americans military already resulting in a number of indiscriminate civilian casualties in Kabul and elsewhere.
One US drone strike on Sunday 29 August supposedly targeting terrorists killed a family of 10 including six children as young as 2 years old Sumaya.
While there has been evidence of cooperation and coordination between US and Taliban for evacuation of those who want to leave Afghanistan and the mutual desire to end 20 year old war, there are terrorists on one side trying to sabotage the agreement while on the other side Islamophobes continue to demonise Taliban denying them to effectively govern Afghanistan.
The Taliban has been facilitating for the Americans and other foreigners leave Afghanistan safely. At the same time they wanted foreign troops out of the country as soon as possible to establish Afghan sovereignty and independence from foreign domination.
