As the only face to face interview with the correspondent Taliban field commander, we feel the Taliban is everywhere, is also deeply concerned about the fate of Afghanistan.
Taliban unusual ferocity
Afghanistan local time at 21:30 on May 31, in the local Arab people under the guidance of a senior center, ” Global Times “reporter and his party boarded the one side and the windshield was completely blocked after the Toyota car, car Zuoguai turn the streets of Kabul, in the deep darkness of night outside the car in the doldrums, so that reporters uneasy . From the car after several heavily armed military and police checkpoints of view, this is far from the outskirts of Kabul, is still the Arab government-controlled areas, but is about to interview with this reporter in Ghazni province, the Taliban is the highest Field Commander 古拉卜沙阿.
“6 days ago, I led a battle group in Ghazni province ambushed a coalition Mukul region’s logistics team. Battle 1 hour later, we get rid of the RPG-7 rocket Three tanker trucks, the coalition forces to eliminate the car. Then came the U.S. helicopter gunships have killed four of us! “36-year-old Gulab begins by describing his team’s recent coalition forces in a attacks, with bloodshot eyes and a sudden release of light to: “Our fight is with the U.S. and Polish troops, I am proud because we sorted out the troops from 43 countries compete.”
not confirm in advance if identity, hard to believe that sitting in the “Global Times” reporter in front of the traditional Afghan turban wrapped around tall extra baggage of ordinary man is a senior Taliban commander in Ghazni province. Ghazni province in eastern Afghanistan, the Taliban first “revival”, but also the most frequently attacked coalition forces in the province. The province is located in the capital Kabul to Kandahar highway hub position, has always been the two major cities, trade centers, strategic position is very important, is contested.
“Taliban in Ghazni province to make a comeback in 2003, we now have complete control of the provincial capital of Ghazni city in addition to all other areas.” Gulab said, and stationed in this strategy to to the U.S. and other coalition forces to fight the Taliban in Ghazni province has developed a total of 11 operational teams, each battle group consists of 5-6 motorcycle components, each motorcycle can carry two to three militants , equipped with AK-47 assault rifles, heavy machine guns, rocket launchers, homemade mines. These weapons by the armed men hiding in Quetta, Pakistan Taliban leader Committee provided free of charge, and then transported to the border by Abba save Ghazni distributed to operational teams. Gulab his battle group led by several classes of action points: First, carefully ambush coalition patrols and logistics team; the second is “eliminating traitors”, that is, those with the U.S. military to kill or with the military and police officials; third kidnapping in the Arab foreigners.
the Taliban, the armed motorcycle is the most commonly used means of transport, the Afghan army or police why not ban it? Gulab’s explanation to reporters stunned: “A government was in Ghazni province permanent secretary Horace Engdahl region and trying to fully endure touch Gino region, but we immediately announced through mosques and public gatherings: No vehicles are not on the road, and on all roads are mined. A few weeks later, the government had announced to scrap this strategy against the Taliban by Jin Mo, so we more powerful than the government. “
violent exception to the Taliban attack shrink from about 19,000 NATO forces recently said that in the coming June, will launch a Kandahar and other areas largest siege operations, this is a “crucial period.” Agence France-Presse that it would be a bloody battle, the U.S. Government’s new strategy in terms of Abba, is a severe test period. In this regard, Gulab did not the United States in the Arab this “decisive war” looked down: “In September 2006, in Ghazni province, the U.S. does not also launched a code ‘anger mountain’ What the military action ? results but also how and when the U.S. military toward our base, we have buried their weapons, and ordinary people at home and poppy crops, some people went to Ghazni city to live in a hotel or rent an apartment, There is also a small part of the stay guerilla, harassing tactics that put the U.S. military soon tired and grueling drag, and finally withdrew, and we will return to the region this year’s Maer Jia, too, believe also in Kandahar no difference, so the Americans can never win guerrilla warfare. “
Afghanistan, a senior Interior Ministry officials and senior members of the media emir of Kabul are the” Global Times “confirmed that the tower in Ghazni province Taliban “abnormal vicious”: In 2006, there have been two Arab government was shot dead in Ghazni province governor; April 2007, in Ghazni province, Taliban militants occupied Gino area, killing the local Chief Executive and recently appointed chief of police.

Gulab warned: “Not long ago, would like to return to Afghanistan, South Korea, they violated the commitment, the Taliban will kill them!”
Taliban refused peace conference
6 2, has been delayed twice Kabul peace conference finally convened Loya, from around 1600 on behalf of Afghanistan, including U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, including 300 foreign officials to attend the meeting. Peace conference spokesman Ahmed told the “Global Times” reporter, the conference has three purposes: First, all walks of life to the peace process in Afghanistan asked the count; Second, ask if they should reach a settlement with the armed groups in Afghanistan; third What mechanisms should be established in order to achieve peace. Initially, outside the famous Taliban and other rebels will be invited to attend the peace conference, the Afghan presidential spokesman Wahid Omar said the armed groups not invited to participate in any meeting, but he said “welcome to send any organization representatives. ” President Hamid Karzai visited the United States after returning 18 also publicly said there was no involvement of the Taliban in Afghanistan can not achieve peace.
However, the Taliban commander Gulab let it be said that the Taliban will not send people to participate in this meeting, “As long as Americans and foreign troops in Afghanistan one day, there is no meeting of this garbage significance. “Gulab said the Taliban to attend the peace conference of local elders will unceremoniously,” We tell them, if you attend the peace conference to Kabul, then come back, will be executed immediately! “
many people in Kabul could lead to the conference expressed concern about terrorist attacks. 1 Kabul also heard the “base” branch of the organization’s leaders in Afghanistan have been killed Yeqi De messages. This person is the “base” organization’s third leader. Said to be “base” organization website has acknowledged the message. Zhu’a U.S. and Afghan officials confirmed the news to reporters, but “still further verification of the details.” A senior diplomat in Kabul told the “Global Times” reporter: “We are very worried about this conference for the large-scale attacks will happen.” Kabul in all schools starting from June 1, holidays until the peace conference, June 4 November. Afghan Interior Ministry official confirmed that the security situation in the holiday with.

Gulab said the Taliban also adjust their own, such as the Taliban are now in the jurisdiction does not prohibit music, let the children go to school. “But she still can not go to school, it is traditional!” Gulab very clear that “there are some illusions about the United States, want Afghanistan to become America’s 51st state, he had on American life, but when people do not get anything, they will identify the government and the United States is a lie. “
Taliban influence how much
for tower Taliban forces in the end how much, there was a rumor that, in addition to the capital, Kabul, some big and some roads on the provincial capital, the other is the control of the Taliban. In this regard, Gulab very sure that, in 34 provinces of Afghanistan, the Taliban has been established in 31 provinces of the “shadow government.” He said, “This is the fact that we are the Taliban government led by the civil governor and provincial Military Commission, the district governor and provincial military commanders by the Nomination Committee, the battle group agreed that re-determined.”
United States, “Washington Post” has also reported that most of the provinces of Afghanistan there are two “governor”: government-mandated “day governor” and the Taliban-appointed “shadow governor.” The article said that the government appointed by the Afghan province of Laghman, “Governor day” poor reputation among the local population, because of his meddling profitable projects everywhere, including foreign aid. And many local people are like “tough but decisive” Taliban “shadow governor.” Low-level Taliban “official” Once involved in corruption, even if it only rumors certainty of dismissal.
both Afghan officials, soldiers or coalition forces, they are in private and “Global Times” reporter exchanges are acknowledged, the situation in Afghanistan does not optimistic. The past two days, with the Pakistani border in eastern Nuristan province of Afghanistan, hundreds of Taliban from Pakistan occupied local government buildings Matar Baghdad, police and government troops push back Ah, finally coalition warplanes bombing was to prevent the move. A southeastern Khost province, a school built with assistance from the West has also been used rockets to destroy the Taliban. In addition, Taliban suicide bombers attacked a police camp in Khost province, wounding nine police officers. In Nangarhar province, two explosions killed five Minga An entire team of officers and soldiers. In Badakhshan province, nine anti-narcotics police killed by a roadside bomb. This is just a place within 72 hours of Taliban attacks. Even President Hamid Karzai has also said, “Now the United States and other Western countries are beginning to recognize the need for dialogue with the Taliban now in Afghanistan, the war is not only military means can be made victory. “
