Defiant Taliban not tired of war as US-led invasion enters seventeenth year

nsnbc : Afghanistan’s Taliban militants are saying that the group is not tired of war as the US-led invasion that toppled the regime of the group has entered to its seventeenth year. In a statement, the Taliban claim that they represent the Afghan nation and call on the American forces to withdraw.

The Taliban, in its statement, further added that the nation has neither become tired and nor will it become tired of the war, The Taliban also claimed that the nation is not feeling any disappointment either and that that the Taliban has the moral high-ground when it comes to the decision to continue the war.

An objective analysis of the Taliban’s statement, however, would lead to the conclusion that an ever growing number of Afghan citizens becomes increasingly disappointed at the fact that there are very few – Taliban as well as centrally placed political actors from other parties and affiliations – who don’t have blood on their hands or a history of abuse and crimes.

That said the Talban underpinned that it is fully committed to force the American forces out of the country. The group has not mentioned anything regarding the possibility of peace talks, nor did it mention its links to foreign powers.

President Ashraf Ghani last week called on the group to join peace process by renouncing violence and insisted that the warring parties should opt ballots instead of bullets in a bid to end the conflict and violence in the country.

he latest statement by the Taliban group has been issued almost two months after the US President Donald Trump announced Washington’s new policy for South Asia and vowed to continue the fight until the terror groups are eliminated.
