Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate inflicted heavy losses on the enemy during an armed confrontation in Kufaki area of Lashkargah, the provincial capital of Helmand province on Monday last. Consequently, the Mujahideen captured a British soldier with his weapon and other military hardware.
To avoid the humiliation as a result of the incident, the invading American and British forces based in south Afghanistan concentrated their aerial reserve force on the said area, launching heavy aerial and ground attacks. In addition to this, the enemy turned to arresting, killing and searching civilian’s houses in order to locate the soldier.
To wrench the pretext from the hands of the enemy which they used for their on going atrocities, the Islamic Emirate had no way but to implement article 13 of the Code of Conduct of Mujahideen and killed the British soldier.
We would like to say that last year, self-same conduct of the invading forces compelled Mujahideen to kill the American soldiers who had been captured by them.
The foreign invading forces which are gloating at their military power do not condescend to take the ground realities into account but,contrarily, they want to sustain their arrogant domineer. Often, this leads to causing them loss. Even, they do not care about the life of their captured soldier but only aim at covering up their fiasco. Even they take for granted the lives of the Afghans defenseless civilians in order to hide their defeat. However, as a result of such conduct of the invaders, their soldier usually loses his life.
Had the British government realized the ground reality that capturing of a soldier is part and parcel of the war, they can be exchanged with war prisoners later on, then the said soldier would have been released through prisoners exchange like the two French nationals.
We can say the British prime Minister acted under the impression of his military commanders and wasted the life of his soldier because of a headlong and irrational venture.
