The Taliban took it upon themselves to leave a nice letter to our new President, Donald Trump. In the letter, released by Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesperson, they said, “Independence from foreign dominance is ‘the only asset’ an impoverished nation like Afghanistan truly has.”
Khaama Press stated they got this message from the Taliban as well, “Taliban urged the newly elected President to withdraw its forces from Afghanistan as it claimed victory in the ongoing war in Afghanistan, claiming that the they should not further harm its prestige, economy, forces and generals in the country.”
The Taliban stated in the letter that the US was doomed to fail in Afghanistan and the best they could hope for would be a negotiated peace that resolved the differences between the Taliban and the current Afghan government.
Taliban officials also claimed that Russia was on their side, offering “moral and political support,” while some officials in the Afghan government claim the Russians are also offering intelligence, weapons, and funding support as well.
President Trump is alleged to have told Afghan President, Ashraf Ghani, back in December, that he “would certainly continue to support Afghanistan security forces and will consider a proposal for more troops after an assessment.” This is according to the Wall Street Journal.
The Taliban stated in December that “two conditions for peace talks are the removal of the group leader’s name from the U.N. blacklist and the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Afghanistan.
The Afghan government, however, rejected those conditions.
Somehow, one doubts that the Taliban will intimidate this President.
