Post via Islamic Emirate
If we look into the history of imperialism we will find that illegitimate pretexts have always been crafted for justification of invasions. The incident of World Trade Center in New York on 11 September 2001 is a good example. Though the embassy of the Islamic Emirate in Islamabad immediately condemned this incident during a press conference following its happening and strongly denying any involvement of IEA in it however hardly an hour had passed when American officials started leveling accusations and used this incident as a pretext to invade our independent country.
If sabotage activities outside the country had been the policy of Islamic Emirate then it would have conducted many similar acts during the past decade and a half because they have been practically fighting against invaders in the country. But the entire world has seen that the Islamic Emirate through its actions has proven wrong all the accusations made by invaders in this regard.
Although many independent investigators have shown doubts regarding the reality of this incident but one and half decade ago, America invaded our beloved country under this pretext. So far they have martyred hundreds of thousands of our countrymen and these so-called advocates of human rights have not even left unharmed the tents of nomads, weddings ceremonies and funerals. For example bombardment of wedding ceremonies in Bala Baluk, Dehrawud and Hisarak districts; bombardment of funeral processions in Khost and Azizabad; bombardment of a children school in Kunar province and many other such examples which show the atrocities and inhumane actions of invaders. Unfortunately these incidents are still happening on daily bases while organizations calling themselves protectors of human rights of today’s civilized world have neither raised their voices for these oppressed people in the past nor they are raising it currently.
Keeping innocent people as prisoners in miserable conditions in Guantanamo and Bagram prisons all the while no accusation have been substantiated against them is another scar on the face of the so-called western civilization, democracy and human rights. History shall never forget it. Furthermore the invaders installed a surrogate corrupt administration (in Kabul) under this pretext which holds top position in global corruption index.
They claimed that there were a few hundred terrorists but ultimately ended up sending 150,000 troops to Afghanistan (to fight them). They used phosphorus bombs and daisy cutter bombs and chemical weapons against the Afghan people. In fact all these efforts were exerted to bring the brave Mujahid people of Afghanistan under the yoke of imperialism. But the Mujahid Afghan nation has once again revived the history of their Muslim Mujahid forefathers. Neither have brutalities of invaders shaken their courage nor their terror rather they have bravely confronted their conspiracies, money and weapons, leaving the Western Generals in shock and awe.
We would once again like to remind the invaders that (our) nation can never be subjugated by your use of terror (tactics) and drones. Nor can you solve the issue of Afghanistan by use of force or false pretexts. The label of terrorism has lost its meaning. You should accept the realities. Independence and establishment of an Islamic system are the legitimate rights of Afghan Muslim nation. If you are going to come around to accepting this reality tomorrow, better accept it today. A wise choice if you prefer.
