US is also surprised by the plan of the Taliba: terrorists in preparation to win Afghanistan- After the withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan, Taliban fighters are preparing to win without a fight. The Taliban is now sitting more firmly on the border post in Afghanistan than the government in Kabul. In such a situation, it is feared that this terrorist organization is preparing to take over the country strategically without causing much bloodshed. Trade has come to a halt at border posts controlled by the Taliban. In such a situation, the Afghan government is facing a huge loss of revenue. Apart from this, due to the disruption of supply, there is also a shortage of food and drink in the capital Kabul.
Taliban capture most of Afghanistan’s border
The Taliban have captured major highways and border posts in Herat, Farha, Kandahar, Kunduz, Takhar and Badakhshan provinces connecting Pakistan, Iran, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. Imports and exports of $2.9 billion are done through these routes. The Ashraf Ghani government of Afghanistan is currently occupying border posts with Iran and Pakistan in Nangarhar, Paktya, Paktika, Khost and Nimroj provinces. The total value of trade through these routes is around $2 billion. Even America is shocked by this well thought out plan of terrorists. Many experts in the US military have also warned about the increasing power of the Taliban.
War continues between Taliban and Afghan army
Fierce fighting has erupted over the occupation of two border posts with Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. Taliban fighters and government forces have been fighting for several days to consolidate their dominance in Jowjan and Balkh provinces. Surrounded by land, Afghanistan is bordered by Iran to the west, Pakistan to the east and south, and Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan to the north. A narrow Wakhan Strip in the northeast with the northern regions of Pakistan connects Afghanistan with the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China.
Kabul is on the verge of battling a food shortage
These neighbouring countries give Afghanistan access to the sea and handle most of the trade. Experts monitoring Afghanistan’s war believe that the Taliban is increasingly working on strategically shutting off the Afghan government’s resources used for administration, war, energy and even food. Taliban fighters have reached the capital Kabul. The Taliban fired several rockets during the presidential prayers in Kabul a day before Eid-ul-Azha. The fall of these rockets in the Green Zone, which is considered very safe, has instilled fear in the minds of people about the Taliban.
Afghan government will not last long!
Asia Times quoted Jan Achakzai, a former adviser to Pakistan’s Balochistan provincial government, as claiming that Afghanistan’s Ashraf Ghani government would not last long. The Taliban have closed strategically important lines. Not only this, the supply line has also come to a standstill due to the control of the Taliban on the borders. He said that the balance of power in Afghanistan appears to be increasingly tilted in favour of the Taliban.
Taliban occupying the border with efficient strategy
Analysts expect the capital Kabul and other government-controlled areas to soon face severe food and energy shortages if the Taliban continues to aggressively capture borders. They believe that the Taliban is occupying the borders as an efficient strategy. Its purpose is to force the de facto surrender of the government.
There will be a huge increase in the revenue of the Taliban
They believe that the Taliban will soon start levying heavy duties and taxes on export and import goods. He did the same thing in 1990 when Afghanistan was controlled by the Taliban. This will increase the revenue of the Taliban and they will be able to continue the war with the government for a long time. In such a situation, this strategy of Taliban is going to be very heavy for the Afghan army and government.
