The Taliban Field A Brigade Of Suicide Bombers – Officially Part Of Their Army


The Taliban have announced that they are forming a brigade of suicide bombers. Reports suggest that at least some of these individuals have, in fact, already been deployed to the border with Tajikistan presumably in preparation for possible attacks against that nation. When they will begin to be put into action remains unclear.

“The Taliban have been cooperative in facilitating the departure of American citizens and lawful permanent residents on charter flights from HKIA. They have shown flexibility, and they have been businesslike and professional in our dealings with them in this effort.”
Biden White House Spokesperson Emily Horne during the disastrous Biden withdrawal from Kabul.

Inherent in these comments is the essence of the Biden administration’s “spin” on the Taliban. ‘They have changed. They are no longer the barbarians who provided Al Qaida the safe haven from which they launched the 9/11 attacks. They are kinder, gentler, more civilized.’

Like most things that the Biden administration says, this is a lie.

In the real world, the Taliban are ordering women not to leave home except in the company of a male relative and decreeing that mannequins be decapitated. They are chasing women from the workplace and girls from school. They are ordering barbers to stop trimming beards. And, now they are institutionalizing the use of suicide bombers as an implementation of their national policy.

Zabiullah Mujahid, the IEA’s deputy minister of information and culture, told Radio Azadi that the suicide unit will be under the Ministry of Defense and will be part of the Taliban’s special forces.

Amin Saikul, former Director of the Centre for Arab and Islamic studies had this comment. “[Suicide bombings are] very important [to the Taliban] because this was one of their main instruments in harassing the U.S. and allied forces and inflicting fatalities.” “By declaring the formation of an official suicide battalion, Saikal added, the Taliban are sending a message to the United States. “‘If you are going to continue the pressure on us … then we will be able to unleash our suicide bombers against you.”

The Taliban make no secret of the fact that they not only endorse but glorify the use of terrorist suicide attacks as an instrument of their policy. Late last year the Taliban Interior Minister Sirajuddin Haqqani – himself a member of a designated international terrorist organization – held a gathering for the families of suicide bombers at a luxury hotel in Kabul. During the gathering, he praised suicide bombers for their “sacrifice” and promised their families land and money.

“I want to do something for the families of our martyrs that reverberates with the entire nation,” said Haqqani, according to an audio recording of his October 18 speech. “I would like to give them a plot of land and a special card that identifies them as members of the families of our martyrs so that their status is even higher than ours.”

Haqqani went on to discuss in particular the January 2018 suicide attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul, which killed 40 people. According to Haqqani, when he met with the commander of the operation prior to the attack, “the commander greeted me and swore that Prophet Muhammad is personally leading their operation.” In response to Haqqani’s comments, members of the audience at the gathering wept and many shouted “Allahu Akbar,” or “God is great.”

Shortly after seizing power the Taliban also staged a huge parade in Kandahar showcasing captured American weaponry. Leading this parade were trucks carrying displays of suicide vests, IEDs, and car bombs. The message was clear. Suicide bombers were to be glorified above all others.

At the heart of this matter is the essence of what the Taliban is all about. As a movement, it teaches its members to actively seek martyrdom and to embrace death. Death is the one true, eternal reality. Members of the Taliban are not taught to fear it or even to accept it as a necessary sacrifice. They are taught to actively choose to become martyrs.

The Taliban do not want peace. On the contrary, only through violence and death can they reach paradise. Perhaps not surprisingly then the Taliban have carried out more suicide attacks than any terrorist group in history.

These are the people who now control Afghanistan and who, thanks to the Biden administration, are armed to the teeth with some of the world’s most sophisticated weaponry. These are the people who produce most of the world’s heroin and are flush with the cash from that lucrative trade. These are the people who even as we speak are organizing hundreds if not thousands of suicide bombers to unleash upon the world.

Biden and company may wish you to forget about Afghanistan. The Taliban will make sure you can’t do that soon enough.
