telesur — As Afghan War Turns 16, Taliban Says It Will 'Break the Horns' of 'Imperialist' US

“The political analysts and inexperienced generals of U.S. leaders thought that Afghanistan was a bite-sized meal which can readily be devoured and added to their list of colonies” on October 7, 2001, when Occupation Enduring Freedom was launched, the Taliban said on its English-language website. “However, they were unaware that this valiant nation has broken the horns of every invading force and thrown them into the sinkhole of history.”

Before: China and US vs USSR

In addition to the US, China and Pakistan having an interest in Afghanistan, Russia, Iran, and India also have an interest in outcomes there. Given this dynamic, Afghanistan is a tinder box.
