America’s new war plan has nothing new, say Taliban

America’s new war plan has nothing new, say Taliban

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): US President Donald Trump’s strategy for Afghanistaninfo-icon is vague and contains nothing new, the Talibaninfo-icon said on Tuesday.

"For now, I can tell you there was nothing new in his speech and it was very unclear," the militant group’s Zabihullah Mujahid was quoted as saying.

In reaction to Trump’s Afghan war plan, Mujahid said the insurgent movement was preparing a formal statement on the US president’s prime-time address.

AFP quoted an unnamed Taliban commander as slamming Trump for perpetuating the "arrogant behaviour" of previous presidents such as George Bush.

"He is just wasting American soldiers. We know how to defend our country. It will not change anything. For generations, we have fought this war, we are not scared, we will continue this war until our last breath," he added.
