New statement / Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: Remarks on Gen. Votel

In the announcement, Zabīh Allah Mujāhid accuses the US of using Daesh (a.k.a. ISIS) as an excuse to prolong their presence in Afghanistan, while berating their performance as warriors.

The head of United States Central Command General Joseph Votel, while talking to the media yesterday made propaganda claims that Daesh in Afghanistan is a major threat and has acquired the capability of directly attacking America from Afghanistan.

Exaggerating threat of Daesh miscreants and utilizing it for media propaganda in order to prolong the invasion of Afghanistan is the duty of many American generals. Instead of assessing the real nature of dispute of Afghanistan, they continue to repeat their previous mistakes of classifying Afghanistan as a major threat to America.

American generals, despite their failure in numerous war tactics during past eighteen years and bringing international and historical shame upon America, still emphasizes on extension of war through use of such rumors to protect the interests of their war mafias and to continue selling weapons.

The Islamic Emirate categorically rejects claims of the American general. Afghanistan neither poses threat to any one nor will the Afghan nation allow such doings. Daesh militant group is restricted to a small area of Afghanistan in spite of full support of American air force, is under the siege and attacks of Muajhideen and will soon be eradicated.

American invaders have consistently supported Daesh by bombarding the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate, providing air escort to under siege personnel of Daesh and by raiding prisons of Islamic Emirate to free Daesh captives.

American generals, by exaggerating the threat of Daesh miscreants, seek to stoke anxieties of regional countries and spread fear in the American public that are against the US presence in Afghanistan and want to see its end.
