Taliban Threatens Neighboring Countries Over Hosting US Troops Leaving Afghanistan (Map Update)

The Taliban has warned Afghanistan’s neighbors against allowing the US to use their territory or airspace for any future military operations against the war-torn country.

The warning came in response to plans to reposition some US troops in the region to carry out counter-terrorism missions in Afghanistan once the US and the NATO are out from the country.

In a statement released on May 26, the Taliban called the plans a “grave historical mistake and a disgrace,” warning that it will not remain idle in the face of “such heinous and provocative acts”.

“As we have repeatedly assured others that our soil will not be used against the security of others, we are similarly urging others not to use their soil and airspace against our country. If such a step is taken, the responsibility for all the misfortunes and difficulties lies upon those who commit such mistakes,” the statement reads.

Last month, US President Joe Biden announced a plan to withdraw all US troops from Afghanistan by September 11. According to a recent statement by the US Central Command, around 16 to 25 percent of the withdrawal process has been completed.

Violence in Afghanistan spiked after Biden’s announcement. The Taliban stepped up its attacks on government forces in several parts of the country.

Are they talking about Turkmenistan – as previous operational site for US in region – Pakistan doesn’t seem to be so accommodating to US military aviation at moment…?

Bravo, so who is the Barbarian? i qoute Talibans:

“As we have repeatedly assured others that our soil will not be used against the security of others, we are similarly urging others not to use their soil and airspace against our country.”

Maybe they live in caves but their moral and honor is lightyears away from this Nato-goons!

Before the Towers collapsed there was a seasonal war going on where the terrorists would travel across the mountains into Kyrgyzstan from Tajikistan . This fighting included support from surrounding countries Kazakhstan , Uzbekistan , Tajikistan . The US , France and Britain were supporting these countries with air support from bases in all but Tajikistan as far as I remember. Tajikistan was being told off by the others for not doing enough in their country to stop the terrorists using their country as their winter base. Uzbekistan was at that time , still probably is as I haven’t kept up with it for several years , the most despotic country on earth which was supported by the US in their global push for democracy and freedom for all. Now you know why I know the US policy of bring democracy is such a fuking joke. When the Towers collapsed the US used their base in Uzbekistan to invade Afghanistan from the north riding horses alongside the Northern Alliance against the Taliban. Probably from Tajikistan as well but I don’t know anything about that . Now you can understand why the Taliban don’t want the US pulling out of Afghanistan only to set up next door in Uzbekistan and Tajikistan .

Very informed comment. I recall Hollywood movie about US special forces operating on horseback with Northern Alliance from north – think called 12 Strong – very corny propaganda film, to ram Neo-Con PNAC agenda at mass US audience.
