The 26th of Dalwa is considered a significant and memorable day in the history of Afghanistan and the region. On this very day of the year 1367 Hijri Solar, the withdrawal of the Soviet invaders was completed as the last soldier crossed the Amu River. We congratulate our Mujahid nation especially the Mujahideen fighting the current American invasion and struggling in the path of truth and independence on the anniversary of this historical day.
Before the invasion of Afghanistan, the Soviet Union was considered the most powerful country on the face of the planet, feared by the entire world including America and NATO. However this super power was quickly battered following the invasion of Afghanistan and the subsequent Jihadic struggle of our nation, up until its final leader Gorbachev declared Afghanistan a bleeding wound for the Soviet Union that will not heal until all troops are withdrawn.
If we look at the current situation, the state of America in Afghanistan is exactly the same as that of the Soviet Union during the final days of her invasion. When we analyze the testimony of General Nicholson during the senate hearing, we arrive at the conclusion that the Americans also believe that the US military cannot achieve victory in Afghanistan and the only thing they can do is continue this exhausting and stalemate mission such that it will further erode American reputation on top of incurring human and material losses.
Scholars say, those who do not learn from predecessors will themselves end up becoming lessons for successors. The Americans need to take a lesson from the Soviet Union to heal the bleeding wound of the Afghan war and must think about withdrawal from this country with honor. But if they insist on war, then the experiences of the previous fifteen years adjudicates that the cost of this war will be further human and material losses and erosion of international legitimacy.
