“Together” Operations of the Common Enemy Under Crushing blows of Mujahideen
According to authenticated reports from the Jihad and honor-loving land of Helmand, with a special help of Allah, the Almighty, the enemy is under crushing blows of Mujahideen. This is despite the accumulation of all kinds of warfare hardware and aerial and ground forces by the invading enemy.
Mujahideen incessantly attack and ambush them, which have stunned the colonialist enemy. On the basis of the data received here, the enemy have lost dozens of their soldiers– both foreign and domestic. Similarly, 15 tanks and military vehicles of the enemy have been destroyed.
If we ponder over the capability of the two sides from the angle of sophisticated military hardware and numerical advantage, we see ,on the one side, roughly 1000 straightforward Mujahideen armed with PK machine guns and rocket-propelled launchers, neither they have surveillance and reconnaissance planes, nor bomber helicopters, B52 planes, phosphorus bombs and other lethal chemical weapons at their disposal, the Western media and the local media which have sold out themselves for American dollars are against them; nor the Mujahideen have the United Nations and the human rights organizations on their sides which blindly give legal clout to every legitimate and illegitimate demands and act of the invaders. But, despite all that, these ill-equipped and undermanned small group of men who have ardent attachment with the cause of Allah, the Almighty, have the upper hand over the enemy that have the sophisticated military hardware and are armed to the teeth and that, only for the battle of Marjah, gathered 15,000 soldiers. In addition to this, they have the support of 40 countries of the world. Still the Mujahideen put them backed into the corner.
The world is witnessing that the spinal cord of America has been broken up because of the current Jihad of the Afghan people.
The Western media admit that thousands of well-nourished American and NATO soldiers who violently cry at the time of their injury and dying, have been killed as a result of the war. Their economy has faced meltdown and disgrace is hastily becoming their fate. They have not been able to suppress or eliminate the Jihadic movement in Afghanistan despite the passage of eight years during which they resorted to every kind of brutal bombardment, destruction, tortures and all devilish tactics. Even they could not block the way of advancement of the Mujahideen.
It is a reality that the so-called Super Power has devilish ambitions, strength and capability but the Mujahideen have the help of Allah (SwT). The enemy have launched 15 operations in the heroic land of Helmand in the past 9 years, let alone other small and sporadic operations conducted by the invaders.
Every time when they launch operations, they make such a tremendous preparations as if they were going to war with a country. Moreover, they always launch propaganda stunt prior to such operations. But praise be to Allah, the almighty, no one can show us any vast area or a district in Helmand province as a proof which substantiates that the enemy writ has been established there permananently.
Helmand holds a message to the common enemy who have launched the operations “ together” that you have not been able to subjugate the people of Helmand during the past nine years, depsite your vast operations and bestialities. Now it is not possible for you to have any gain or advancement in Helmand or any other part of the country—still more in a time that the American, British and their allies’ tactics have faced a complete fiasco in the country and the strongholds of Jihad have already expanded and strengthened in every corner of Afghanistan. However, the enemy can resort to some brutalities, which they are doing right now: like blind bombardment and missile attacks, detainment of innocent people and driving them from their homes and hearths. More than that, they will not have any achievement. Nor Mc Crystal will be able to make for his shameful and historical defeat in Afghanistan by just focusing on one town of a district out of 385 districts of Afghanistan.
