On September 1 local time, CCP propaganda mouthpiece huanqiu.com (GlobalTimes) triumphantly reported that Taliban held Mock funeral for NATO, U.S., U.K. and France after U.S. withdrew from Afghanistan on August 31. According to the report, the “coffins” in the funeral were covered with the flags of the U.S., U.K., France and NATO. It was crowded, and some people were waving Taliban flags. The report triumphantly commented that “The irony is extremely strong”.
At around 0:00 on August 31 local time, after the last U.S. plane flew off the runway of Kabul Airport, a senior Taliban official announced: “All foreign occupation forces have just left Afghanistan.” The Taliban soldiers stationed at the airport to maintain order were “ecstatic”. They entered the American evacuation area and fired at the sky. They tore the star-spangled banners that the Americans had not removed into strips. Some people set off fireworks. The Taliban then uploaded to social media videos of shooting in the sky to celebrate at the airport, as well as videos of Taliban soldiers wearing US military uniforms and holding US-made weapons checking a CH-46 Sea Knight helicopter parked in the hangar.
Plus, “there are also Taliban soldiers flying over Kandahar with a newly captured Black Hawk helicopter”, according to the report.
Meanwhile, in another editorial on the same propaganda website, CCP humiliated secretary of defense Lloyd Austin, threatened that there’s no way U.S. can divert the resources used in Afghanistan to West Pacific:
“Austin’s sentimentalism is disgusting. Had they not launched the stupid invasion 20 years ago, the U.S. could have avoided today’s withdrawal. And even so, with a little judgment and strategy, the withdrawal would not be so embarrassing. What Washington needs is the courage to reflect and accept lessons, but they once again moved themselves and tried to show that even their mistakes and crimes are so noble.”
“However, some American elites are deliberately trying to use the resources withdrawn from Afghanistan to target China, using a more ambitious plan to stop the process of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the transformation of China’s future.”
Also, CCP claimed that they’ve seen through the systematic weakness of U.S and revealed their tactics: “Impetuous American political elites think that playing strategic and geopolitical skills are everything. What they lack is the patience and tenacity at the operational level, and the US national system cannot provide the long-term support required for complex struggles. As long as we fight a protracted war and transform the strategic game into endless tactical entanglement and consumption, the United States will lose wherever it fights.”
What CCP is trying to do is to fundamentally attack the credibility of U.S. It’s unfortunate that the weak, incompetent and corrupt politicians in the free world are so cooperative.
