When France began its withdrawal process from Afghanistan in recent times it seemed as the French government would likely expand its anti-war stance to other regions of the world however it broke off its commitment to peace by transgressing militarily on the soil of northern African nation of Mali. France has launched war against the Muslim nation of Mali without having any legal jurisdiction.
The Islamic Emirate strongly condemns this French attack on a Muslim nation and calls on all the nations of the world, governments and organizations to fulfill their due roles in stopping such transgressions so that the Muslims of Mali can solve their own problems by themselves. Such interventions and attacks are not only disastrous for Mali but also for France.
All the powerful countries of the world should take lessons from the failed American policy of military interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq from which it cannot wrangle free or regain its lost status.
Spokesman of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
“How many more men must die in support of a mission that is not succeeding,” he asked? His report’s opening comments said:
“Senior ranking U.S. military leaders have so distorted the truth when communicating with the US Congress and American people in regards to conditions on the ground in Afghanistan that the truth has become unrecognizable.”
“This deception has damaged America’s credibility among both our allies and enemies, severely limiting our ability to reach a political solution to the war in Afghanistan.”
His classified report was more explicit.
“If the public had access to these classified reports,” he explained, “they would see the dramatic gulf between what is often said in public by our senior leaders and what is actually true behind the scenes.”
“It would be illegal for me to discuss, use, or cite classified material in an open venue, and thus I will not do so.”
He traveled thousands of miles throughout the country. He spoke to US commanders, subordinates, and low-ranking soldiers. He talked at length with Afghan security officials, civilians and village elders.
What he learned bore no resemblance to rosy scenario official accounts. Insurgent forces control “virtually every piece of land beyond eyeshot of a US or International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) base.”
Mali’s President Dioncounda Traore used Twitter on Sunday to announce that Canada, the United States and Britain have agreed to provide logistical support to the Malian and French military forces fighting the Mujahideen. The U.S. has acknowledged it is providing communications and transport help, while Britain is sending C-17 aircraft to help African nations move their troops to the front lines. The Canadian government did not comment directly Sunday on Traore’s announcement. But Jay Paxton, a spokesman for Defence Minister Peter MacKay, stated in an email that Canada’s position has not changed.
“Canada continues to be deeply concerned by the ongoing security situation in Mali and supports efforts to stabilize that country,” he said. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has said Canada would not provide “direct” military aid to Mali. Government officials have said, however, Canada is looking for ways to support that country.
Mali’s puppet president did not give further details on what sort of logistical aid Canada would provide. But a Canadian Forces C-17 transport aircraft was recently in Africa to deliver equipment and personnel from the Canadian Special Operations Regiment from CFB Petawawa so they could begin training troops from Niger. The Canadians, numbering less than 25, will provide instruction to the Niger soldiers and then accompany them to a U.S.-sponsored exercise in Mauritania. It is not known whether the Canadian C-17 has since been diverted to pick up other African troops and transport them to Mali so they can take part in the fighting.
