New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: "Regarding the 27th Anniversary of the Soviet Defeat"

27 years ago today on the 26th of Dalwa 1367 (15th February 1989) the Soviet invading forces in our country [Afghanistan] were completely defeated and a new chapter of valor and heroism was written in the proud history of the Afghans.
After a decade of tyranny and barbarism in Afghanistan, the defeat and withdrawal of the Soviet occupiers in spite of having the most advanced military equipment was a clear example of Falsehood succumbing in the face of Truth.
The enemies of our nation and religion have constantly tried to bring us misery, promote irreligiosity, occupy our country and break our determination but all praise is due to Allah, they have failed and taken their dreams with them to their graves.
Unfortunately after the Soviet Union the remaining arrogant international powers not only failed to take heed from the Soviet defeat in Afghanistan but began treading the latter’s footsteps and transgressed against the honor, pride, land, religion and culture of this poor miserable nation.
The humiliating defeat of the Soviet and withdrawal of over a hundred thousand soldiers proves that none can subdue this nation or become an impediment in front of their faith and lofty goals. Whoever seeks to subjugate them should await the same fate as that of the Soviets.
Today’s American invaders are also standing on the edge of overt defeat and have failed at achieving anything during the 14 year occupation. They have been forced to kneel in front of Faith and Afghan valor and it is not far that we shall add the date of American defeat to our calendar just as that of the Soviets.
The Islamic Emirate acknowledges the heroism of the its valiant Mujahid nation on the anniversary of the defeat of the Soviet Union’s Red Army and asks Allah Almighty to reward those who have sacrificed in this path.
At the same time it is determined that just as the Soviet Union, Allah willing, the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate will also completely defeat the American invaders, emancipate our nation from their oppression and will continue waging Jihad as its religious obligation so long as a single American invader is present on our soil and is an impediment in front of an Islamic government.
