Remarks by Spokesman of Islamic Emirate Concerning Anti-Peace Expressions by U.S. President Trump

February 12, 2018

January 30, 2018 – US President Donald Trump exposed his war-mongering face yesterday by stating that he had no intention of holding peace talks with the Taliban. These expressions by Trump prove and clear up the following points:

1 – As we have always maintained, the true authority of war and peace is not with the Kabul regime but with the American invaders and the recent statement by Trump made this matter brighter than the sun.

2 – American invaders and their supporters use peace as mere rhetoric while their true strategy is war and continuation of occupation. Trump openly dismissed any notion of peace or reaching an understanding.

3 – Since Trump and his allies rejected peace, all responsibility of war and bloodletting will also befall upon them because they have not only lit the fire of the ongoing war with their invasion but have spurned any possibility of peace and understanding.

4 – The Islamic Emirate holds peaceful life for the Afghan nation as its greatest goal and wages the ongoing Jihad with the aim of ending the occupation. Even though our enemies solely recognize war in any official capacity however we believe that the resilient struggle and deep patience of our nation will in the end, force the invaders to recognize realities and present them to the table of talks and logic.

5 – Donald Trump and his war-mongering supporters must understand that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. If you insist upon war, our Mujahid nation will not welcome you with roses. Our nation has a long and rich history of bringing arrogant invaders to their senses. War will only make the reactionary Jihadic waves more violent and increase the human and financial losses of American troops by many folds.

6 – Trump should be informed that this is not a war of material superiority but it is a war between Truth and Falsehood, a war of freedom fighters against occupiers. We will most definitely triumph because our cause is lawful and with the help of Allah Almighty, Afghanistan shall become the graveyard for another Empire, Allah willing.
