The NATO forces in Afghanistan, in collaboration with their Afghan puppets and western media outlets under the leadership of the U.S have been trying by diplomatic maneuver and organized propaganda to make it appear as though Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate were ready for negotiations and that they have made progress in this regard.
Although the Islamic Emirate has previously issued a number of statements regarding this subject, in which it clearly rejects such false claims and calls it a failed last ditch effort by the enemy but the impudent enemy persistently keeps putting forward such mind boggling lies through its propaganda channels and through the bought out leaders of the so called Peace Council without presenting any kind of credible proof whatsoever.
Once again, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan wants to remind the world and its countrymen its stance on the issue. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan refutes outright these false claims neither has it sent any delegations for talks and neither does it intend to negotiate at a time when the country is under occupation.
In this regard, we must say to Burhanuddin Rabbani and the other degraded faces not to revive old enmities by promoting these false allegations nor should they run the propaganda campaigns to please America. As Afghans, they should not aid General Petraeus’s strategy (bullets and negotiations) developed by the Pentagon because the General wants to have this strategy worked through your hands in such a wicked way that Afghanistan may permanently become a colony of America.
From our point of view, another reason for this intense fabricated propaganda by Karzai and General Petraeus is also likely to win the confidence of the people by making it seem as if the Kabul administration (the crooked and corrupt regime) could bring forth a solution to the problems of Afghanistan.
The Islamic Emirate irrefutably believes that in the presence of foreign invaders, peace talks and any kinds of negotiation deals will be futile as they will not yield a positive outcome for the Momin people and nation. For this reason, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan once again calls on the invaders to stop wasting their time on failed propaganda and military campaigns [and] instead leave Afghanistan so it can enjoy a few years in peace and independence.
Insisting on continuing your crimes may get you nothing but lose political and economical credibility in the eyes of the world which is likely to end up bringing about far more fatal casualties on your part.
