چند هفته پیش سخنگوی #طالبان در کلاب هاوس گفت: «ما تشنه روابط با جمهوری اسلامی بودیم و یکی از دلایلش رهبری روحانیون در آنجاست و انقلاب ما الهامگرفته از آنها بود.» pic.twitter.com/i56trtmQtF
"No one cares about us. We'll die slowly in history."
The video comes after former CIA Director David Petraeus warned that Democrat Joe Biden's "disastrous" handling of Afghanistan has created a "catastrophic" security situation.
Retired Army general Petraeus says the rapidly deteriorating situation is not only devastating for the U.S. but the whole world.
"This is an enormous national security setback and it is on the verge of getting much worse unless we decide to take really significant action," the ex-Obama admin official told host Rita Cosby on "The Rita Cosby Show" on WABC Radio.
Petraeus was the former commander of U.S. and International Forces in Afghanistan.

The Taliban terrorist group is reportedly “going door-to-door” and abducting girls as young as 12 years old to become “sex slaves” for jihadi fighters.
The Australian network's report cites an earlier report by Bloomberg:
“An inside source suggests that Taliban leaders are attempting to kidnap and forcibly marry women."
“[T]he Taliban are going door-to-door in some areas, compiling lists of women and girls aged between 12 and 45 years for their fighters to forcibly marry,” Bloomberg reported on August 9.
OpIndia reported August 12, citing an August 11 report from the Daily Mail:
“Taliban commanders, after capturing some of the provincial capitals, have ordered local Imams [Islamic leaders] to bring the lists of unmarried women aged from 12 to 45 for their soldiers to marry as they view them as ‘qhanimat or ‘spoils of war.’”
