Taliban media machine quick off the mark – on the re-election of Barack Obama
By Tim Foxley
Summary: A brief, prompt and to the point piece of advice from the Taliban to newly re-elected President Obama
Well, you have to hand it to them, they can be commendably quick off the mark when they want to be. On Thursday, the Taliban posted an official statement on their website on the occasion of the US Presidential elections, to give some recommendations to the re-elected Obama and the American people. The message is short, clear and to the point, if a little repetitive. In essence: you, the American people, are tired of fighting, you have lost, you should leave and focus on your problems at home. Nothing particularly of note in the message – I have come to expect them to react with speed to global events, but usually with a certain amount of clumsy naivety. This isn’t quite so evident here.

That America once again voted for Obama as its president and elected him into the White House hence the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan would like to state that following:
1.Obama should properly utilize his second opportunity this time around by preventing the American leadership from using her as an international police state; it should instead focus on the hardships facing its own citizens and avert America from burning that the flames of international hatred.
2.That the American people have grown weary of wars and needless military spending therefore Obama should realize this reality; answer the call and aspirations of its people; end this futile war and prevent further tarnishing the name of America by perpetrating more war
3.Obama understands that the American nation has grown tired of war casualties and its back breaking economical penalty therefore he should immediately withdrawing its invading troops from our country and extract the American soldiers from this calamity.
4.The elements being supported by America in our country are the most detested figures and rejected faces of our nation; by supporting such elements, America will only face more difficulties and will gain only more human and material losses.
5.Maybe Obama has realized that they have lost the battle in Afghanistan therefore instead of prolonging and lying, it should immediately leave our pure soil and instead turn its attention towards its own country and people.
