The Taliban has published a letter slamming the US president’s new Afghan strategy. It urges Americans and their elected representatives to lobby Donald Trump to choose negotiations, not escalation, in war-torn Afghanistan.
The 10-page letter released by Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid makes use of statistics and figures in an attempt to sway the “American people” and “peace-loving congressmen” to pressure the White House into peace talks with the group – a move which Trump has publicly opposed.
Citing the “3,546 American and foreign soldiers” killed and the “87 percent rise” in heroin production in 2017, the letter argues that “if the policy of using force is continued for another one hundred years, the outcome will be the same … as you have observed over the last six months since the initiation of Trump’s new strategy.”
