Taliban Vow to Continue Militancy after US Troops Increase in Afghanistan

Taliban Vow to Continue Militancy after US Troops Increase in Afghanistan

Alwaght- The Taliban militant group has vowed to continue insurgency in Afghanistan after US announcement that it will increase occupation forces in the Asian country.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement issued on Tuesday that the group would continue their militancy “as long as there is one US soldier in our land, and [as long as] they continue to impose war on us.”

Mujahid also urged the US to think of an exit strategy “instead of continuing the war” on Afghanistan.

He further warned that, “If America doesn’t withdraw its troops from Afghanistan, soon Afghanistan will become another graveyard for this superpower in the 21st century.”

The terse statement by Taliban came after Donald Trump’s decision to intensify US involvement in Afghanistan representing a complete u-turn for the man who once backed troop withdrawal and blasted his White House predecessors for futile missions that were a “complete waste.”

In a televised speech before a military audience at Fort Myer on Monday, Trump said that after studying the issue, he had reconsidered his original instinct to pull US forces out of the 16-year war in Afghanistan.

Trump did not provide details about the exact number of troops he might send but he hinted that he had embraced the Pentagon’s proposal to deploy another 4,000 more forces to Afghanistan. There are already 8,400 American occupation troops in the country.

Trump’s new Afghan plan is a complete flip-flop from the advice he once tweeted as a private citizen.

Between 2012 and 2013 Trump’s Twitter tweeted regularly on Afghanistan. “Wasting our money” and a “speedy withdrawal” were two of the common themes expressed.

In 2015, during his election campaign, Trump said of an attack in Afghanistan in which US troops were killed: “We are being led to the slaughter!”

A resurgent Taliban controls greater areas of the country than at any time in the 16-year war with the group launching a bloody offensive in recent months. ISIS Takfiri terrorists group has also gained control of swathes of the war-torn country.

Afghanistan has been torn by decades of a Taliban-led militancy and the 2001 invasion of the US and its allies.
