The peace deal with the Taliban is off to a rocky start!
The United States has carried out an air raid against Taliban fighters in Afghanistan, a US forces spokesman said a day after President Donald Trump spoke to a senior Taliban leader by phone.
“The US conducted an air strike on March 4 against Taliban fighters in Nahr-e Saraj, Helmand, who were actively attacking an ANDSF [Afghan National Defence and Security Forces] checkpoint,” said Colonel Sonny Leggett in a tweet on Wednesday, adding that it was a “defensive strike”.
The raid, the first against the Taliban in 11 days, comes days after the US and Taliban signed a deal aimed at ending the nearly 19-year-old war in Afghanistan – the US’s longest.
The agreement, which was finalised after more than a year and a half of negotiations, paves the way for the withdrawal of all US and NATO troops from Afghanistan and a commitment by the Taliban that Afghan territory will not be used to launch attacks on other countries.
President Trump on Tuesday said he held a “very good talk” with a Taliban leader in what may be the first direct discussion between a US leader and a senior Taliban official.
Taliban’s chief negotiator, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, and Trump held a 35-minute telephone call, a Taliban spokesman said, with Trump later confirming the call to reporters at the White House.
In an emailed statement later, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said Trump told Baradar that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would soon speak to Afghan President Ashraf Ghani “so that the barriers against the inter-Afghan talks get removed”.
It’s a great plan for President Trump to send Mike Pompeo to handle these troubles.
Although he is believed by many to be a satanic cannibal and pedophile, and also believed by many to have ordered the release of the Coronavirus as a weapon against China after his riots in Hong Kong had fizzled out, and also he destroyed Trump’s peace talks with North Korea, he is actually a really nice and reasonable person, and helpful to various policies.
I’m sure Pompeo will treat the Taliban very fairly and come up with great solutions to end this war really soon.
The most important thing is that we make sure that Afghanistan is 100% peaceful and has a perfect democracy, just like the United States. It could be a really big problem if there was a disruption in the region, because poppy fields are an extremely important resource for global economies.
In Other News…
Susan Rice, the Obama Administration official who led the campaign to spy on Trump (we seem to have forgotten about all that), wrote an op-ed for the New York Times today calling for the war in Afghanistan to never end, and condemned Trump for trying to end it.
She actually claims in the piece that the Taliban did 911, which is something I haven’t heard since like 2006.
I guess just like she can come back after everyone forgets about the fact she wasn’t ever prosecuted after getting caught ordering the FBI to spy on the presidential candidate of the opposition party and then printing off transcripts of everything him and his team were saying in communications collected by using cellphones as recording devices, the claim that the Taliban did 911 can come back after everyone has forgotten about that.
You would think that the NYT would at least add a footnote saying “911 was done by Al-Qaeda, not the Taliban.” But they did not. Maybe the NYT is ready to start making that claim again also?
I guess they might as well!
After all, saying “Donald Trump is friends with the people who did 911, because he doesn’t care that all those people died” is a lot easier than saying “we just want this pointless war to go on forever because we’re Jewish.”
For those who don’t remember, the Taliban was the government of Afghanistan when 911 happened. Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al-Qaeda, was allegedly living in Afghanistan at the time. The US accused him of doing 911 and asked the Taliban to hand him over. However, the Taliban asked for evidence that he did 911, because bin Laden said he didn’t do it. The US had no evidence that he did it, so the Taliban said they wouldn’t hand him over, so the US invaded the country and went to war with the Taliban.
Osama bin Laden was allegedly killed in 2011 in Pakistan by the US military, and Al-Qaeda is no longer in Afghanistan, but is instead in Syria where the US government is funding them to fight a war against the government of Bashar Assad. But for some reason, we are still fighting against the Taliban in Afghanistan.
The Taliban attacks US troops in the country because they are occupying the country and they want them to leave. However, the US claims that they won’t leave until they stop attacking them, which is a very weird condition to ending an occupation.
The negro spy Rice also complains about attacks on the “Afghan government.” But this is a puppet government created by the US government. They created it by bribing random warlords, and then said that because it was a democracy, it was the one true government. But of course the Taliban remains the actual government, which is supported by the population. There obviously isn’t a way to solve this problem without either killing almost the entire population of the country, or simply withdrawing American troops.
But of course the position of the likes of Susan Rice, who is a globalist technocrat, is that the war should just go on forever, or until the entire population of Afghanistan relocates to Europe. Probably about 500,000 of them went to Europe as Syrian refugees in 2015 when Angela Merkel invited them to come live on welfare while telling the people of Europe that these cave people would work in the high-tech sector to pay the pensions of old Germans.
But that still leaves 35 million of these people living in Afghanistan, and all of them who are not being paid to support democracy support the Taliban.
German women love these men, so I guess with the border to Greece open again, maybe the rest of them can all go to Germany, and then Susan Rice would allow Donald Trump to withdraw the troops from Afghanistan.
However, until then, if you try to end the war, Susan Rice will say you support the 911 attacks.
Oh, and we should also note: Rice also puts the condition that we shouldn’t leave until the country has women’s rights. Because why not throw that in? It’s another thing that won’t ever happen in any universe, which is the purpose of all of her conditions, because the goal is to make sure the war never ends.
