The ‘Military Times’ website published a report citing the US Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, as saying that the United States wants to find a solution to the Afghan war but that does not involve troop withdrawal.
Mattis made these comments at Reagan National Defense Forum.
The Islamic Emirate wants to remind US Secretary of Defense Mattis and other officials that the valiant Afghan Muslim nation is absolutely determined in forcing the occupying American forces out of Afghanistan.
The political efforts of the Islamic Emirate for the withdrawal of American invaders should not be misconstrued as meaning that the American invaders will not be targeted militarily or that withdrawing and not withdrawing from Afghanistan are options chosen by American Generals!!!
The Islamic Emirate has afforded American an opportunity to end the occupation of Afghanistan and resolve their concerns through political means and at a minimum cost. But if the American officials and generals are of the belief that their occupying forces will remain in Afghanistan and that they will be left alone, then they should reassess their talks.
We will not tire or be disappointed in our Jihad. The Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate shall continue their armed struggle and Jihad until the withdrawal of the last American invader.
The biggest mistake of American military officials is that they do not adopt the path of reasoning and rationale and always use force and stubbornness even when it will not give results. The Afghan Mujahid nation has the right of forcing occupiers from their land through every medium possible and have twice forced out occupiers (British and Soviets) from Afghanistan over the past century. The Americans should read our history and learn a lesson from it.
