In the province Zabul, Afghanistan, the Mujahidin have struck again – against the Arghandab Post.
This movie is meere propaganda, just like all as-Sahab productions, but this time it’s plain obivious that the alleged base which is being attacked was propobly abondened some time ago by coaltion forces. But make up your own mind (links at the end of the post).
This post, according to the leader of the unit, is of strategic importance: in a valley, in between moutanious areas, it connects several districts and controls the only road.
This movie is about the victory over a militart post, which is supposed to be run by the evil evil Americans (who else?). What makes the movie quite significant is that the Mujahidin, or Taleban seem so be planning this attack very accurately, letting the viewer know whats going on.
The picture shows the landscape crafted by the attackers, in order to explain how the attack should succeed:
Well, so far so good, and the viewer does expect a standoff – the commander informs us that 150 mujadidin will participate in the attack.
They even dispatch a recon unit – something is shown quite often, especially in the Afghan videos, take a look of the supposed checkpoint (close to the base):
If you ask me, it’s already abandoned. Suddenly the recon team has to hide, the speaker informs us about incoming US planes, send to seek and destroy the poor Taliban (notice the boots of this jihadi):
After that US forces arrive on the scene, some vehicles are shown in the video and the planned assault is delayed. Some time later however, the battle beginns as the Taliban are marching towards the target, praising their endurance and patience and finally the “battle” beginns. Mostly shots fired into the dark, no output can be seen – it just seems staged all the way.
The Taliban retreat, all the sudden and return to their HQ – while eating bread and potatoes, the narrator calls upon the rich and wealthy muslim businessmen to donor to the cause of jihad – and to defend “islam” against the pact of infidel nations, a pact forged in order to destroy the true religion of God.
Two more things about the video:
First, the local (male) population speaks “freely” into the camera, claiming to be finally freed of the foreign oppressor who throw people into prison randomly and disallow any freedom of movement.
Second, while inspecting the “conquered” base, the Taliban find tons of empty patotoe chip bags – produced and exported from Saudi Arabia. Now that’s just one more proof how wicked the Saudi royal family is. (Expect some forthcoming extracts from the Sawt al-Jihad soon, as the magazine is full of that anti Saudi notion)
