While the Democrats have been in a frenzy over the supposed insurrection by ‘dangerous’ Americans of the Capitol Building on January 6th 2021 – a real threat looms on the horizon. The Taliban have threatened the Biden administration, promising to commit an attack on American soil.
According to a report from The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), who monitor jihadist communications through open source intelligence collection methods, the threat included “a battalion of suicide bombers,” 2000 is their plan, who will be sent to Washington DC.
The report also said that the Pentagon were looking at ways to beef up security in the capital and were considering sending 2000 U.S troops to the American Embassy in Kabul.
According to the MEMRI report, “In December 2021, it also emerged that the Islamic Emirate told the United States during talks in Doha that if the U.S. insisted on deploying 2,000 American troops at its embassy in Kabul, the Taliban would also deploy as part of any bilateral arrangement 2,000 fidayeen mujahideen [i.e., suicide bombers] at the Afghan Embassy in Washington D.C.”
The Taliban is also creating a ‘special forces’ within the Afghan National Army for suicide bombers.
“Our mujahideen in the Ishtishhadi Kandaks [martyrdom-seeking battalions] will be part of the army and [they] will be Special Forces and organized under the defense ministry. The Special Forces will be established in a specific number and used for special operations.” said Zabihullah Mujahid, terrorist and Taliban leader, according to MEMRI.
Not long after the Taliban regained control, they reached out to diplomatic countries, saying they were going to be more “tolerant” and “moderate” in their governing, allegedly in a desperate attempt to have billion of dollars of their assets unfrozen.
The Taliban have never been and never will be, tolerant or moderate.
Bloomberg reported that, “the Taliban will officially recruit suicide bombers to become part of the army as the militant group tries to contain its biggest security threat from rival Islamic State since forming government in Afghanistan four months ago,”
So much for being more tolerant and moderate – the Taliban has redeployed ‘religious police’ to terrorize its citizens, hanging some in and executing others all in public spaces.
Before the U.S sent troops to Afghanistan 20 years ago, the technology and weaponry they possessed was relatively primitive.
But of course since Biden bungled the entire withdrawal, the Taliban has now claimed billions of dollars worth of high-tech equipment.
This includes Apache helicopters from the U.S after it was left abandoned. Their ‘army’ now has more helicopters and sophisticated weaponry than that of Australia.
But while they threaten the United States, there could well be an internal war about to explode in Afghanistan, due to the Islamic State, who have constantly jostled with the Taliban for control.
Maybe Democrats should look at Afghanistan to see what a real insurrection looks like.
