Taliban Spring – New Wave of Attacks Hit Afghanistan – as Predicted by Us Whistleblower
In what will be called the Taliban Spring, the Taliban have launched a major offensive in Afghanistan with a series of coordinated attacks in capital Kabul and several provinces. Rocket propelled grenades launched against key targets including Nato HQ, embassies of Nato forces, and Parliament.
The Taliban launches a major Spring offensive in Afghanistan with a series of coordinated attacks in the capital Kabul and several provinces. Rocket propelled grenades have been launched against key targets including Nato HQ, embassies of Nato forces, and Parliament.
According to Reuters the attacks have been confirmed by Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid who said they were part of a long planned Spring offensive. This seems to confirm what has been suspected – that the political talks with the Taliban are just a stalling tactic on their part as they prepare fresh military action.
US Whistle-blower Speaks Out
On the one a spokesman for the Afghan government condemned the lack of intelligence and preparation for the attacks – but a top US Lieutenant-Colonel has gone public with claims that US Generals are misleading public opinion about the true state of the military campaign in Afghanistan.
Lieutenant-Colonel Daniel Davis claims that Americans and their allies are risking their lives fighting in Afghanistan - often dying as they win territory – only for the gains to be lost as Afghan forces let it fall to the Taliban. This is happening as US Generals claim successes working together with Afghan forces, he claims.
His report would seem to be backed by this outbreak of a Taliban Spring. At least seven huge explosions have been heard in Kabul as residents run for cover. The US,Russian and German embassies are under fire and Nato’s Camp Warehouse on the outskirts of Kabul is under direct attack. It is defended by Greek and Turkish troops from Nato forces.
The Taliban Spring offensive in Kabul has been co-ordinated with attacks on Logor and Paktia provinces. There has also been a suicide bombing at Jalalabad airport.
In a damming part of his report Lieutenant-Colonel Daniel Davis claims that he asked an Afghan police officer if they ever tried to fight the Taliban. “No, that would be dangerous,” he replied, laughing in the face of Davis.
US and Nato forces are due to pull out of Afghanistan next year – leaving a trained Afghan defence force.
The credibility of that plan has now been undermined as the Taliban openly attack Nato in Kabul.
