Taliban Won’t Cooperate With the U.S. in Containing ISIS in Afghanistan

Taliban Won’t Cooperate With the U.S. in Containing ISIS in Afghanistan

The Taliban threatens the U.S. with “consequences” if drone strikes target ISIS.

The Taliban has refused to cooperate with the United States in combating the resurgence of Islamic State (ISIS) in Afghanistan. Taliban leadership on Sunday rejected any U.S. assistance in combat against ISIS as President Joe Biden’s administration holds first in-person talks with Afghanistan’s ruling terrorist militia since it took power nearly two months ago.

The Taliban’s refusal to allow the U.S. to target the ISIS in Afghanistan comes amid a series of deadly suicide attacks by the terrorist group across the country. The Islamic State in Khorasan, or ISIS-K, as the Afghanistan chapter of the jihadi group is known, has also taken responsibility for the August 26 suicide bombing outside the Kabul airport that killed 13 U.S. soldiers and 169 Afghan civilians.

Last month, The Taliban threatened the U.S. with “consequences” if counter-terrorism drone strikes were carried out on the Afghan soil. This prevents the Biden administration from going after the ISIS plotters behind the Kabul airport attack. “We will hunt you down and make you pay,” President Biden had vowed following the terrorist attack.

The Associated Press reported the Taliban’s refusal to allow strikes against ISIS targets:

The Taliban on Saturday ruled out cooperation with the United States to contain extremist groups in Afghanistan, staking out an uncompromising position on a key issue ahead of the first direct talks between the former foes since America withdrew from the country in August.

Senior Taliban officials and U.S. representatives are meeting this weekend in Doha, the capital of Qatar. Officials from both sides have said issues include reining in extremist groups and the evacuation of foreign citizens and Afghans from the country. The Taliban have signaled flexibility on evacuations.

However, Taliban political spokesman Suhail Shaheen told The Associated Press there would be no cooperation with Washington on containing the increasingly active Islamic State group in Afghanistan. IS has taken responsibility for a number of recent attacks, including a suicide bombing Friday that killed 46 minority Shiite Muslims and wounded dozens as they prayed in a mosque in the northern city of Kunduz.

The Taliban, despite being seen as a rival to ISIS, has ties to the fellow Islamic terrorist outfit. As the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, it released hundreds of ISIS fighters detained by the U.S. and the Afghan government. Top ISIS leaders were among those freed from the Bagram detention center and Kabul’s Afghan national prison. “Bagram prison contained the 5,000 ‘highest value’ Taliban, al-Qaeda and Islamic State fighters captured on the battlefield,” The Times of London reported.

The Taliban may publicly portray the Afghan ISIS as their rivals, but they both adhere to the same jihadist ideology. Both terrorist outfits believe in global Islamist domination through the means of jihad warfare.

The Taliban’s takeover of power in Afghanistan has been welcomed by jihadi groups across the Muslim world. Al Qaeda, Gaza-based Hamas, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad have cheered their victory.

The newly-formed Taliban’s Islamic Emirate leadership comprises many Islamists with ties to the Al Qaeda terrorist group. Taliban’s Interior Minister, Sirajuddin Haqqani, is on the FBI’s most-wanted list with a $10 million bounty on his head.

I guess the Taliban is also saying, “Fuck Joe Biden” or is it “Let’s go Brandon”?

    Only the Biden administration is surprised.

    They called the Taliban “business-like and professional”.
    This is beyond incompetent.
    The sum of all their actions seems best explained as an intent to destroy America.
    No one could F***-Up this bad and so often without it being intentional

    How about instead of saying, “Fuck Joe Biden” they’re actually doing it. According to an AP report Biden may actually send aid to the Taliban. After all this.

    As I understand it, the aid is supposed to go to humanitarian NGOs still working in Afghanistan. But as Biden would say, “C’mon, man!” That is basically the administration telling us we’re stupid. Like that supposed ethics deal r.e. Hunter Biden’s “art.” The deal, according Baghdad Bob Psaki is that the gallery won’t tell Hunter who bought his “art,” which of course any chimpanzee flinging poo could outdoo. And even Piss-aki couldn’t keep a straight face when she tried to claim that nobody could possibly influence if the administration doesn’t know who they are.

    Of course, nothing would stop a buyer from telling Hunter who they are. They could go to one ho his showings, tell Hunter which piece they were going to buy, at what price, and then show proof they bought it. Such as displaying it.

    Not even Obama’s former ethics advisers are buying this.

If your surprised by this you need to read up on Islam.

    Wow. Absolutely no one, NO ONE, could have predicted this. Just like no one, NO ONE, could have predicted that if we gave billions to Pakistan to fight “extremist terrorism” then Pakistan would turn around and through its interservices intelligence agency ISI channel that money to fund the Taliban and al-Qaeda. I.E. use the money we paid them to fight terrorism and instead sponsor terrorism.

    Surah 5:51

    “O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.”

    Believing Muslims can’t ally themselves with non-Muslims to fight non-Muslims or else they are apostates. WTF is Nidal Hassan on death row? On the run-up to his unit’s deployment to Afghanistan he gave a Power Point presentation to his “colleagues” (they were forced to consider him one, but as his act of mass murder shows he never considered them his) about how the U.S. must not force Muslims to fight Muslims on behalf of the U.S.) detailing verse by verse, hadith by hadith, that forcing Muslims to fight Muslims was forcing them to choose between apostasy or resistance. His “colleagues” got the message and informed their seniors that this guy was a threat. His seniors told them to shut up or face discipline. He was the Army’s first Palestinian “American” medical officer, a great diversity prize, and they’d be marked down on their E.O. scores if they dared raise the subject again.

    At trial he wanted to defend his act of mass murder was his obligation as a Muslim, as the U.S. was forcing him to choose between obeying orders or eternal damnation. The court martial judge wouldn’t allow that defense. Too bad; it might have opened some eyes.

    Pakistan’s reaction to what the Bush administration was trying to pay them to do was similar. How to escape the dilemma the “crusaders” were forcing them into. On the one hand, they didn’t want to alienate the USG and give up all that aid money. On the other hand as pious Muslims they couldn’t do what the Bush admin was paying them additional billions to do. Solution? Taqiyyah. Take the money, promise the Bushies they’d help in our war on terror, and then turn around and aid their fellow Islamic terrorists.

    And what was the Bush administration’s response? Pay the Pakis even more money.

    We are deliberately blind and ideologically stupid. Ask a leftist (and I consider the Bushes to be leftists) and it all comes down to good paying jobs, paying for child care, and healthcare. Since leftists are all materialists, they can’t conceive of the thought that Muslims take their religion seriously and might just hate us because Allah commands them to.

    We’ll never learn because our ruling class is ideologically committed not learning since one of their gods is diversity. And their god of diversity preaches that all people, everywhere, are just like them, and only want the same material things they want.

    We’re are so f***ed.

Isis wouldn’t exist without the CIA, ISIS is the “moderate rebels” that John McCain and Hillary Clinton armed.

Given USA’s ties to ISIS, the Taliban is very smart to reject USA “help.”

    They fear the Libyan solution, a Kiev coup, or, perhaps, a Persian parade coordinating a war without borders.

50 shades of ISIS. Perhaps the next president will end what Obama… Biden started.

Recall the establishment’s received wisdom (aka ignorance in circulation) when Bush made his case for invading Iraq. Among his reasons was Saddam Hussein’s support for terrorism. First, the left conflated the verifiable fact that Saddam Hussein did support terrorist groups with the idea that Hussein supported al-Qaeda and was somehow behind the 9/11 attack (Bush never claimed that pre-invasion; the left simply lied and claimed he did). And then the received wisdom was that Islamic terrorist groups would never cooperate with the secular Saddam Hussein.

For the sake of argument let’s say they were right. A lot of articles making those claims seem to be memory-holed but this archived CFR article from 2005 comes close to expressing that pre-invasion received wisdom:

“…Saddam was a secular dictator, and his regime generally tended to support secular terrorist groups rather than Islamists such as al-Qaeda, experts say. But Iraq also supported some Islamist Palestinian groups opposed to Israel, and before the 2003 war, the CIA cited Iraq’s increased support for such organizations as reason to believe that Baghdad’s links to terror could continue to increase…”

The left was wrong on both counts, as after Gulf War I Saddam Hussein had at least attempted to remake himself from Ba’athist dictator to holy Islamic warrior. Part of this transformation included changing the Iraqi flag. Between 1963 and 1991 the Iraqi flag was tricolor with red, white, and black horizontal stripes and the three green stars of the United Arabic Republic (the even then defunct political union between secular, socialist Egypt and Syria, which Iraq hoped to revive and join). After the 1991 Gulf War the stars were replaced with “Allahu Akbar. Islamic groups did start working with Hussein; I’m not saying that they believed he was sincere about his Islamic conversion, but they accepted his overtures.

So the left was wrong to call Saddam Hussein a secular dictator; during the 12 years prior to the 2003 invasion Hussein “identified” as a Muslim dictator (It’s easier to believe that than that persons who “identify” as women have penises, so leftists have to believe the case I’m making about the Iraqi dictator). And in any case we are talking about a Muslim majority Arab nation. Both facts placed Iraq solidly in Dar al Islam; the house of Islam.

The left was also wrong about Iraq having no connection with al-Qaeda and the 9/11 attack; Iraq did provide support.

i”A federal judge’s finding that there was enough evidence to show Iraq supported Osama bin Laden’s terror network and must pay millions in damages is “a significant victory,” a lawyer in the case said…”
(in a classic d**k move Bush made sure the families got nothing from Iraq’s frozen assets, since he claimed he needed all those billions for rebuilding the country)

But they were right in theory; there is no way religious Muslims would cooperate with a truly secular, non Muslim country against Muslims. Islam divides the world into two camps. After the Gulf War Iraq was in the first camp. The second is Dar al Harb, the house of war.

So, why, pray tell, did our “experts” think the Taliban would choose to cooperate with us to fight al-Qaeda or ISIS? We don’t have even a nominal Muslim dictator; we have “devoutly Catholic” Dementia Joe the abortion worshipper. And we are an overwhelmingly Christian nation, although we all know most of those Christians are only nominally so. Both facts place us solidly in Dar al Harb, the house of war. There is no way the Taliban would ever cooperate with kaffir harbis (infidels at war with Islam) in preference to other Muslims.

I suppose because our “experts” (the ones who “planned” the Afghanistan evacuation, among other fusterclucks) are religiously devoted to their goddess diversity who preaches ignorance of other cultures had never heard of the Arabic Muslim saying, “Me against my brother, my brother and I against our cousin.” And it is Islam that divides the world into the two camps I mentioned above. Our “experts” have never heard of that Islamic orthodox religious tenet.

What would we do without our “expert” ruling class? Oh, I know; survive as a nation and a republic.

Whaaaat?! I thought the Taliban were our “allies in the region”! Oh, say it isn’t so, Joe…

Joe, despite what you were unreasonably expecting, Afghanistan ain’t your Monopoly board no more.

China and Russia are laughing so hard I we can just about hear them over here.

I fear for Taiwan and the people living in fear there now – because Biden is in office.

China want to distract from its $5 Trillion real estate bubble. I think an attack on Taiwan will be that distraction.

But, will the Taliban/ISIS implement “Drag Queen Story Hour,” fly the rainbow flag over mosques during “Pride” month, and, refrain from engaging in their national sport of tossing homosexuals and trannies off of rooftops? That’s what Xi-den and the Dhimmi-crats want to know.
