To Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America

Peace be upon those who follow the guidance!

Your forces have spent 16 years in our country Afghanistan and have used every means to win this war. Despite the fact that the former administration officials created a large coalition to attack our country, your 16 year military presence in Afghanistan has resulted in Afghanistan becoming the most unstable country security wise, the most corrupt administrative wise and the poorest country economically.

The reason behind all this is because foreign invasion is being used to subdue the will of our proud Afghan nation, our national integrity is stripped and keys to power have been handed to individuals who are the most repulsive, wretched and hated faces in the Afghan society due to their servitude to foreigners.

President Trump!

It is entirely possible that you are being provided rosy pictures about Afghanistan by the stooges you have installed and they are showering you will titles ‘allies of the Afghans’ in their ceremonial addresses but understand that the Afghans possess sound intellect . They judge you by the results of your 16 year presence in Afghanistan and not by the slogans of the lying corrupt rulers under your control.

You must realize that these repulsive sellouts neither care about your interests nor that of their own nation, rather the only thing they hold dear is retaining their seat of power and securing their personal interests.

They are not solely subservient to you either but will eagerly be the puppet of any foreign backer to retain their illegitimate grip on power. Even in the current government that you have built, they maintain illicit contacts with tens of other foreign powers.

President of America!

The government which you tried to establish over the past 16 years by spending billions of dollars, sacrificing thousands of soldiers and losing tens of thousands to injuries and mental illness is in a condition where its leader cannot accept his own deputy. You are witnessing that at this very moment the First Vice President – the war criminal and warlord – General Dostum is creating an opposition coalition outside the country against Ashraf Ghani, provincial governors have begun rising against him and Members of Parliament are demanding his resignation.

President Trump!

If you glance over history you will come to know that the Afghans have done you the biggest favor internationally. They rescued you and the entire world from the Red Communist Plague with their immeasurable sacrifices. Do you wish to repay this historical favor of the valiant Afghan nation by forcing upon them such incompetent, corrupt, immoral and criminal officials?

A sound mind and healthy conscience dictates that the monumental actions and international favor of this persecuted nation should be repaid by dealing and interacting with them generously and not through invasions, throwing them into the fire of imposed wars, trampling upon their religious and national values and installing the most corrupt officials as custodians of their affairs.

President of America!

Your previous officials decided to invade Afghanistan without weighing its consequences. They occupied Afghanistan under irrational arguments which had nothing to do with the Afghans. The Afghans who rose against your forces in defense of their land, creed and people did so as a legitimate struggle that is why the fully armed forces of 48 nations under your leadership were unable to pacify and eliminate them.

The Afghans have no ill-intention towards the Americans or any other nation around the world but if anyone violates their sanctums then they are mighty proficient at beating and defeating the transgressors.

The religious and national struggle of our people is not some illegitimate or proxy war rather it takes root from a pure spiritual and national fervor. Your intelligence agencies admit that our Mujahideen are not being supported by any country and neither can they produce any proof in the contrary. After repeated invasions, our nation understands well how to wage long wars with invaders and force them out of their homeland with their traditional weapons and equipment paired with towering resolve and zeal.

Mr. President!

American youth are not born to be killed in the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan in order to establish the writ of thieves and corrupt officials and neither would their parents approve of them killing civilians in Afghanistan. Rather you and American officials have the grave responsibility of protecting the lives of American youth which is your indispensable human resource. It seems to be a historical mistake on part of the previous administrations to have dispatched American youth for the slaughter of Afghans however as a responsible American President, you need to study the mistakes of your predecessors and prevent death and injury to American forces in Afghanistan.

Generals are concealing the real statistics of your dead and crippled however the Afghans can easily count the coffins being sent your way on a daily basis

President Trump!

We have noticed that you have understood the errors of your predecessors and have resolved to thoroughly rethinking your new strategy in Afghanistan. A number of warmongering congressmen and Generals in Afghanistan are pressing you to protract the war in Afghanistan because they seek to preserve their military privileges but instead you must act responsibly as the fate of many Americans and Afghans alike is tied to this issue and as is often said ‘War is imperative politics which cannot be left alone to the whims of fighters’. You must also not handover the Afghan issue to warmongering Generals but must make a decision where history shall remember you as an advocate of peace.

The war situation in Afghanistan is far worse than you realize! You are witnessing that Mujahideen are wresting control of several districts from the corrupt regime in a one week span and are seizing so much equipment that they can continue fighting for a long time. They can easily take control of all major highways of the country and if it were not for fear of civilian casualties, they would conquer many provincial capitals currently under sieges.

Here every Afghan views your soldiers as invaders and transgressors and even the soldiers who you spend a lot of treasure upon frequently open fire on your troops with the same weapon you have provided. Here every parent teaches his offspring about emancipating his country from invaders. In a land where every child is raised with a spirit of vengeance and holds the historic honor of defeating three Empires before you, how will you achieve a stable condition for permanent presence?

President of America!

Everyone now understands that the main driver of war in Afghanistan is foreign occupation. The fire of war has been lit due to foreign occupation and everyone is utilizing these war conditions for their self-interests. If there was no war here, a responsible assertive government could have prevented anarchy and lawlessness. You have understood through your experience in the Middle East that kindling the fire of war is not in the interest of any country around the world.

Previous experiences have shown that sending more troops to Afghanistan will not result in anything other than further destruction of American military and economical might therefore it would be wise if you adopt the strategy of a complete withdrawal from Afghanistan instead of a troops increase. On the one hand, this strategy will truly deliver American troops from harm’s way and on the other, it will bring to an end an inherited war by rectifying the mistakes of former American officials.

Final Words

President of the United States! The uprising of the people of Afghanistan under the leadership of Islamic Emirate is an organized and accountable national, political and regional military force which has prevented many calamities from taking root. If it were not for the responsible policies and organized movement of the Islamic Emirate, such disorder would arise that its flames shall reach the neighbors, region and the entire world. If someone were to understand this reality, they would truly consider the Islamic Emirate as mercy for Afghanistan, region and the world because the Islamic Emirate does not have any intention or policy of causing harm to anyone and neither will it allow others to use the Afghan soil against anyone. It would be a grave mistake on your part to force the Afghan Muslim nation – who have so far fought you with their meager tools – to reach out to your foes in order to gain their independence and free themselves from your oppression. Therefore it would be better for you to understand the realities as a responsible President of the United States and then make decisions based upon them. And understand this with an open heart that if you failed to win the Afghan war with professional US and NATO troops, advanced technology, experienced military Generals, consecutive strategies and mighty economy, you shall never be able to win it with mercenaries, notorious contractor firms and immoral stooges.

لا يتضمن بيان راتني ما ينبئ بتغير طارئ على السياسة الأمريكية في المنطقة، وليس في الموقف الأمريكي العام إشارة طارفة تدل على تحديث خططهم العملياتية المستقبلية، ولا إضمار لتوجه جديد أو تحرك مرتبط بهيمنة الهيئة على إدلب؛ إنما هو تكرار للمعزوفة الغربية وحشو لا بد لهم منه، حضر بشكل اعتيادي مع أجواء المداولات الأخيرة في الساحة، الهادفة إلى تشكيل إدارة مدنية و لمّ الصف الداخلي؛ حيث السعي الأمريكي الدائم للعرقلة والتخريب وتخويف الفصائل، منعا من انبثاق حالة ائتلافية جامعة، متنوعة الفرقاء، يمكنها فرض ثقل سياسي وحيازة قرار ذاتي مستقل.

ومن غير المستبعد أن تُتبع أمريكا بيان مبعوثها بموجة قصف إمعانًا في إرهاب الفصائل وإبعادها؛ إلا أن تحركا جذريًا مؤثرًا للإرادة الدولية و الأمريكية إزاء الوضع في إدلب ليس مطروحا أو متداولا، وهو تحرك لا يرتبط – بالدرجة الأولى – بماهية الفصائل المسيطرة، خضراء كانت أم سوداء، فالأسود لم يزل صاحب الكلمة النافذة منذ سنوات؛ لكن الأمر رهن لجدية التواثق والتوافق على خطة حل برؤية واضحة، يمكن – في الطريق إلى إنجازها – الاستغناء عن دور الهيئة والإذن بتغيير موازين القوى في حرب الشام.

فالواقع أن ما يطرح اليوم من حلول لازال في بواكير أطوار التبلور والإنضاج، يغشاه خطوٌ غير مرقوم ولا مفهوم، ولا يتراءى في آفاقه ما يؤهل لإمكانية تهديف دولي نحو ضرب آخر أقوى منطقة “معارضة” وتفكيكها؛ ونحن نرى تعثر المزاملة الروسية الأمريكية بعد اتفاق الجنوب، وكذلك الروسية التركية بعد ضياع الأستانة، وما بدا كأنه مفتاح تسوية كبرى تحول إلى هدن جزئية موضعية، محدودة وهشة، يستميت الروس لتعميمها على باقي المناطق ثم دمج خيوطها في وضع شامل؛ بيد أن الإلتزام الأمريكي يبدو خاملا متراخيا، والواضح أن الحالة المتأزمة للعلاقة مع الروس مؤخرا قد أثرت على نسج الخطة واستكمالها؛ بالإضافة إلى التحفظ الإيراني المرتاب من الدور الأمريكي، والساعي في النقض والتعطيل خوفا من تسوية تحجمه أو تبعده.

هذا الواقع دفع بالروس إلى متابعة خفض التصعيد منفردين في الغوطة و حمص، وبشكل سريع خديج، مع مؤشر هزالة تمثل بحضور مصري غريب، ووساطة لمعارضة مهمَلة صنعت في موسكو! لكن الأسى هو انخراط الكثير من الفصائل في “ردة” ثورية موصوفة، عبر الخضوع لمظلة حميميم بمنتهى الصغار والهوان والاستسلام.

بالعودة إلى إدلب؛ فسيطرة الهيئة على دفتها والقرار السياسي فيها قد أفشل كثيرا من المصائد و المكائد، ولولا أن هيأ الله تعالى لهذا الجهاد جهة أمينة على المسار والأرواح؛ لأمسى شمال سوريا كجنوبها أو أشد ذلة وتبعية وارتهانًا.. وقد وفر التخالف الأمريكي التركي فسحة يتوجب على الإخوة الحركة برشاقة في مجالها، و إيجاد هامش يمكن لتركيا المناورة فيه بأقل حرج: عبر اعتماد واجهة ثورية مدنية مرضية، تتولى إدارة المنطقة وتمثيلها و تصدر مشهدها؛ وإلا فقد تنحو الخيارات التركية منحى آخر مغايرا، في ضوء التمهيد لاستبعادهم من المشهد والتأثير، و تخوفهم من خسارة إدلب كحصة نفوذ أو توسيد أمرها إلى الروس – كما لمح راتني -.

إن الجهاد الشامي اليوم في عنق زجاجة معتمة، بين ضيق وانسداد، وصعوبة في الرؤية والتقدير والتدبير؛ إلا أن القوى المجاهدة لا زالت تملك زمام مبادرة فاعلة مؤثرة، وقد تحالفنا اللحظة في عزمة إنقاذ وإنجاء، فالرهان على الميدان لم يفقد جدواه، وأخطار المغامرة الآن خير من آثار السكون، والحرب إن طال العهد بها سيصعب على الشعب الأوبة إليها؛ ولعل الإنجاز المبدل لجغرافية السيطرة كفيل – بإذن الله – بخلط الأوراق وإطاشة سهام التآمر، و إطالة عمر الثورة والصلاح و السلاح… وفي المحرر من المقدرات والإمكانات ما يتيح هذا لو أحِسن بعثه وإنهاضه، إذ المعركة معركة وجود ومصير، والمرحلة تاريخية ستحدد معالم الشام لعشرات السنين؛ لا مجال في مثلها أن تهمل أي طاقة قادرة، أو أن يرقأ أي ينبوع يمكن توجيهه وصبه في ميزاب البذل الصحيح.

Over the past eight years, al-Qaeda’s fortunes have ebbed and flowed. Drones, uprisings, and a challenge from the Islamic State have forced the core al-Qaeda organization—historically based in the Afghanistan/Pakistan region—and its various branches to adapt and migrate outward.

In this new Policy Focus, Washington Institute fellow Aaron Y. Zelin compiles case studies demonstrating how each part of al-Qaeda’s network has evolved and survived the various challenges it has faced roughly since the Obama administration took office. Written by eminent scholars, practitioners, and government officials from the United States and abroad, the chapters are informed by a recent workshop in which the participants gave candid, off-the-record assessments of numerous key issues, including al-Qaeda’s current strategic outlook, a close examination of its branch in Syria, its branches outside of Syria (AQAP, AQIM, al-Shabab, and AQIS), and its current financial situation.

Contributors include: myself, Bruce Hoffman, Charles Lister, Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, Samuel Heller, Katherine Zimmerman, Andrew Lebovich, Christopher Anzalone, Don Rassler, Hans-Jakob Schindler, Katherine Bauer, and Matthew Levitt.

On 13 April 2017 at approximately 7:30 pm local time in Nangarhar’s Achin district, in the area of Mamund valley, American forces dropped – according to their statement – the largest non-nuclear bomb known as the ‘mother of all bombs’. This barbarity was followed with much fanfare with the Americans proudly boasting about it in the media thus showcasing the increasing barbarity of the foreign occupation.
The use and experimentation of such destructive weapons by foreign occupiers on our war-weary people and in every corner of our war-ravaged country is inexcusable. The Islamic Emirate condemns such barbarity in the strongest of terms and considers its perpetrators as war criminals. Such over-proportionate use of destruction poses long-term detriments for the environment and the development of our nation.
The repression of Daesh plots inside Afghanistan is the obligation of Afghans and not of foreigners. If the Americans fear for their security they should foil such plots at their own borders. The use of Daesh as a ploy to kill Afghans, bombard our lands, experiment novel weapons, and extend the illegitimate occupation is unacceptable. On the contrary, it is a historical wrong and a blatant aggression.
Through such actions the Americans hope to portray itself as a force against Daesh while at the same time giving this group visibility and legitimacy and therefore practically strengthening it. In recent months the Islamic Emirate carried out three separate operations against Daesh in Nangarhar yet every time the Mujahideen came close to completely eradicating this group, American aircraft would start bombarding the Mujahideen and forcing them to retreat.
The fact that the Americans claim that their presence in Afghanistan is limited only to a train and assist role while dropping 10 kiloton bombs on our lands only strengthens the voices of independence and Jihad in our land. Such barbarity illustrates that all freedom-loving Afghans ought to adopt a clear stance against the ongoing oppression of our country and no longer be fooled by American extenuations.
We believe that the use of heavy weaponry and destructive bombs in our country is not the answer to the current dilemma. Rather such irresponsible actions only light the flames of vengeance and show the ugly face of foreign occupation.
