US scrapped talks with Taliban as Blackwater’s Afghan chief was killed in Kabul attack, claims Pakistani analyst

Kabul/Islamabad: The Taliban had carried out an attack in the Afghanistan capital of Kabul, on 2nd of September in which thirty people, including a US military official, were killed. Also, US President Donald Trump had scrapped the peace talks with the Taliban after the attack in Kabul. However, the reasons behind the decision have now surfaced. “The Taliban launched a brutal attack on Green Village, the most sensitive area in Kabul with a high-security compound. Blackwater’s private soldiers and their Afghan chief were killed in the Taliban attack. This was the reason behind President Trump’s decision to scrap the peace talks with Taliban”, says a Pakistani analyst.

Orya Maqbool Jan, a former diplomat, analyst and a staunch proponent of Taliban, exposed the information. The attack on Green Village was so fierce that 30 Blackwater personnel were killed on the spot. Blackwater is a private security company which supplies mercenaries, and the United States has not openly acknowledged the deployment of Blackwater’s troops in Afghanistan. Nevertheless, Blackwater Founder Erik Prince had proposed a while ago that the United States should deploy Blackwater mercenaries, instead of risking the lives of the US soldiers. Also, claims had surfaced of Blackwater being operational in Afghanistan previously as well. While exposing new information on the matter, Orya Maqbool Jan said that the Blackwater commander in Afghanistan, Shafiqullah was among the 30 killed in the Taliban’s Kabul attack.

The Taliban Spokesman informed via social media that they had killed Shafiqullah. Commander Shafiqullah was instrumental in killing scores of Talibani terrorists. Orya Maqbool Jan claimed that the Taliban avenged the killing of their comrades by killing Shafiqullah. Furthermore, the Taliban was emerging victorious in the Afghan war, and that the United States would have to concede defeat and retreat from Afghanistan, he asserted. At the same time, he alleged that the Afghan government and India were rejoicing because the US-Taliban talks were scrapped. Moreover, even the pro-US entities in Pakistan were pleased with the development, he said.

“In the end, regardless of the developments, only the Taliban will emerge victorious in Afghanistan. Taking this into account, the Pakistan government and military should not initiate talks with the Taliban at the instance of the United States. If that happens, Pakistan will suffer immense destruction”, Orya Maqbool Jan warned.

“The Soviet Union had attacked Afghanistan, and after conceding defeat in the war, the USSR disintegrated. Now, the United States has made preparations to lose its superpower status by attacking Afghanistan”, claims an extremist group in Pakistan. Orya Maqbool Jan is standing in support of this group and is among the individuals that openly support the Taliban. He commended the Taliban for remaining firm on its extreme stand. What’s more, Orya Maqbool Jan has demanded that even Pakistan adopt a similar position.

US military presence in Afghanistan vital for our security, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
Washington: Former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice stated that ‘The Taliban was convinced that the United States wants to deal far more than they do. That is why the Taliban adopted an adamant stand in the talks. Nevertheless, President Trump has now scrapped the peace talks, and I took a sigh of relief after that.’ At the same time, Rice added that she was steadfast on the United States keeping a military presence in Afghanistan.
In an interview with a US news channel on her recently published book, Rice expressed her frank opinion on the Afghanistan issue. Rice said that President Trump had made the right decision of cancelling the talks with the Taliban. At the same time, she said that she was fully aware of the US citizens being frustrated with the war ongoing in Afghanistan since the last 18 years. However, she underscored that the decision was vital for national security while reminding of the plot for the 9/11 attacks on the United States being hatched in Afghanistan.
“It is necessary to keep US soldiers in Afghanistan for national security. Since the past 50 years, the US military is deployed in South Korea, and that also was a necessity for our security. One must look at the military presence in Afghanistan from that point of view,” Condoleezza Rice highlighted. Likewise, the former Secretary of State also justified the resignation of National Security Advisor John Bolton over a difference of opinion with President Trump.
