Taliban Navy

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , on October 2, 2021 by andelino

Landlocked Afghanistan now has a Navy under the command of the Taliban, who formed the water hole going formidable force without the help of abandoned U.S. military equipment.

The bearded Taliban deployed a series of “Fatwa Fulfillment Boats” (FFB’s) out on some desert water holes patrolling the shallow waters of Afghanistan’s three or four drainage ditches.

More than two dozen Taliban fighters, armed with rocket launchers and assault rifles, were seen riding in colorful, swan-themed pedal boats at Band-e Amir National Park in the eastern Bamiyan province of Afghanistan.

In one of the photos by reporter Jake Hanrahan, a Taliban “bearded goat herder” appears to be aiming a rocket-propelled grenade. Thankfully we see no innocent children or aid workers at the water holes, so they are at safe from Joe Biden’s “drone strikes.”

The deep blue watering holes in the heart of the country had been considered a relative safe haven before the militant group’s takeover last month. “This park serves as an icon for the identity of the Afghan people for essentially a beacon of stability for three decades of chaos that they went through,” Alex Dehgan, formerly with the Wildlife Conservation Society, told CNN in 2019.

James Willcox, founder of UK-based tour company “Untamed Borders”, said it had once been safe enough to bring visiting groups. “Every time we take people to Band-e-Amir, they have a great day. Most people’s impression of Afghanistan is that it’s dry desert, full of just war and terror and misery and fundamentalism. Whereas all those things exist, but lots of other things exist as well. The general sort of banality of life doesn’t happen on the news, but it goes on all around us,” Willcox told CNN at the time.

Afghanistan’s new “bearded” rulers have seen growing conflict with the even more extreme ISIS-K, who have a stronghold in the eastern Nangarhar province. Explosions in the city of Jalalabad left three dead, at least some of whom were Taliban members. 

Maybe “Fraud-In-Chief” Joe Biden can contract with the Taliban “goat herders” to run security for us on the southern border, now that they have adequate fire power including shoulder mounted surface to air missiles. Clearly they have plenty of time on their hands since the American withdrawal.

Somebody should explain to Old “senile” Joe that “A well regulated militia, being the best security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” applies to our citizens, not our lethal enemies.
