RT: A senior spokesperson for the Taliban has warned that the US military personnel in Afghanistan must be gone by September 11, after Washington redeployed soldiers to watch over the evacuation.

The US must remove all its troops from Afghanistan by September 11, Suhail Shaheen, a member of the Taliban’s political office and negotiation team in Qatar, told Sky News.

Shaheen said the militants remain committed to not attacking US servicemen, and their immediate goal is to maintain security and prevent incidents around Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul.

The group’s spokesperson previously said that foreign diplomats and aid workers will not be harmed.

The US planned to withdraw its troops by August 31, but was forced to dispatch around 5,000 additional soldiers to facilitate the evacuation of American diplomatic personnel and their allies from Kabul, as Afghanistan’s capital and largest city was swiftly seized by the Taliban on Sunday.

The sudden arrival of the militants sparked panic, with locals swarming the airport in the hope of catching a flight from Afghanistan. According to reports, several people died during the ensuing chaos and US troops reportedly fired in the air to prevent desperate Afghans from flooding the runway.

On Monday, President Joe Biden promised a “swift and forceful” response if the Taliban attacks American soldiers or disrupts evacuations.

    • Kevin Barrett on VT today,
      “9/11 was the worst crime ever committed on American soil. It put the final nail in the coffin of our Republic, turned us into an evil empire, and sent us on a fool’s errand wasting $7 trillion on a murderous and doomed crusade against brave people defending their countries against the war criminals that we have become.

      Since that day, the real America has been stone cold dead. There’re only one way to bring it back to life.

      We know who did it. Most of them are still alive and walking around without a care in the world.”

      This is what’s wrong in the World.

  1. You are a Muslim society. You claim your religion is superior to Christianity, that we changed the Bible, that Jesus was never crucified and rose from the dead, that your civilization is better than ours.

    So why don’t you own it? Why do you have to come begging for our money our Military Support and endless amounts of financial aid?

    If your religious leaders can’t get their act together to decide how Muslims should treat their women and daughters, that is not our problem. Why don’t you open your eyes and wake up to realize you’re part of a depraved religious system? And leave the rest of us in the world alone until you’re ready to acknowledge the failures and falsehoods of your faith. Stop playing on our sympathies and treating us like a bunch of suckers!

    Above all, lie about our religion and spit in the face of Jesus and the God of Israel and see what sorrow and suffering awaits you: Not 72 virgins in heaven but 72 different cases of VD HIV bubonic plague and every other horrific disease you can imagine.

    What you are suffering here now in this world is just a drop in the ocean of the pain shame and disdain that awaits you for all eternity in the afterlife. We pray you will open your eyes and cry out to the Lord God of Israel and repent. And throw off the shackles of your lying abominable false religious leaders. Get on your knees and come unto Christ. We are praying for you. Amen.

  2. This Western duplicity to ‘Oh what’s gonna happen to the Afghani women-folks now since we the greatest liberator of humankind (i.e. meaning subjugator!) are leaving them at the mercy of the Talibans. This makes us laugh, giggle, chuckle, cackle, snicker, snort, titter like raving lunatics! And we say hey America, stop crying this crocodile tears. Enough already, mind your own frigging business! Let the Afghans and Talibans mind their own.

    • I don’t know if you are a man or a woman, but if you’re a woman, I’ll bet you wouldn’t like living there, even with the possible liberalizations.
      Even if you’re a man, how could anyone rationalize the relationships that must exist between mothers and sons, brothers and sisters over there. Talk about troglodyte caveman mentality; no wonder they’re so at home in caves.

    • Elvin please refrain from nonsensical attacks. You have no idea who Afghans are and what Brits, Russians, US and Australians have done to them for decades is summed up in a few sentences by your mainstream displaying a covered Clarissa Ward of CNN et al for you to swallow.

      For 50 years I’ve harbored hundreds of Hazara refugee families as farmers in my farm in Iran and just like what Iran could have been if left alone, Afghanistan, much different but resourceful, could have been a peaceful place without the western guns and ideology.

      Taliban was is a creation of the Rumsfelds of the MIC for pure profit otherwise Iran offered to take them out in 2000 when they were still a ragtag army and Rumsfeld refused.

  3. It shouldn’t be too unexpected that the Taliban is showing signs of “modernization.” Even the meanest can soften around the edges.
    If the prospect for certain limited advances holds true, then “progress” has been made.
