Why USA cannot defeat Taliban?
Question: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh!!! Why the United States, being a military superpower, cannot defeat the Taliban movement? Does USA specially support Taliban to use it in own interests?
Answer: Wa alaikum assalam. Yes, the USA is the world leader in terms of military power. Annual military budget of America is bigger than of other world countries. However, despite this fact, the USA made a coalition with NATO and dozens of other states and invaded Afghanistan and was defeated by Taliban. If we look at it from the viewpoint of logic, it should not have happened. However, the Islamic Ummah has such a power that even the Ummah itself cannot realize it sometimes. Therefore, the system of unbelief, before coming down on Muslims, will try to show Muslims as guilty in order to prevent awakening of this power. This power emerges when an enemy intrudes into a country, when the religious fundamentals are offended, when the Kufr openly declares war against Muslims. This power is uniting of the Ummah into a single body. An example of it is the Kufr’s artificial organization of the September 11 events. Thus, it is not Taliban militants who defeated the military coalition led by the USA in Afghanistan. The global system of unbelief could not achieve victory here because the Ummah accepted the Taliban mujahedeen and other groups as its own sons and protectors of homeland. In other words, the Taliban movement or other armed Islamic group will achieve victory if they act in accordance with the Shariah laws and in unity with such a power as the Ummah. Unification of the Ummah around the Shariah is a great power! The Kufr’s global government system knows it very well and is concerned that the Ummah might realize this power in itself! Therefore, they ascribe their defeat to Taliban or other organization and publicly declare about it to conceal the ideological power of the Ummah from it and from the world community. Those who call the Ummah to unite around the Mabda (Islamic state ideology) are labeled as “terrorists” and “extremists” and are isolated from a society because the Ummah can unite only around the Mabda. Otherwise, it will be under misapprehension trying to restore Islam and to protect the Islamic ideology if it uses the Kufr’s methods. At the moment, the global system of unbelief disseminates into the Ummah’s conscious the ideology of “moderate and traditional” Islam. This project calls for merging of Islam with the Western ideology. In this project, they call the Ummah to live and accept that only the worshipping part of the Islamic ideology will be implemented and that it will be protected by the Kufr methods. This pertains to Shariah and political aspects of the issue. Regarding intentional support of Taliban and other armed Islamic groups by the United States and providing the above conditions for them, the USA and the international politics are concerned with activation of international Islamic movements. That is why they try to lead astray Muslims from reviving Islam by misguiding them. This is happening in Syria. In other words, they “reward” Islamic militants with a victory to conceal the fact that the fight in Syria is contrary to the Islamic ideological principles. By doing this, they try to distract the Ummah from ideological awakening, shading the ideological power of Islam and crowning with victory only the military power. Therefore, any organization, be it Taliban or other Islamic armed group, can achieve success only acting in accordance with Shariah and Islamic ideological method. They must realize the truth that they are strong only because the Ummah is behind them. The Ummah sees every Islamic movement as a society that contributes to reviving of Islam. So, every Islamic organization must complete assigned tasks within the scope of the Shariah methods. Otherwise, they will be among the organizations the people refused and as a result will be needless even for the Kufr.
