President Joe Biden’s State Department spokesperson Ned Price admitted the Taliban won’t care about President Joe Biden’s organized statements.
During the State Department press briefing on Wednesday, the GOP War Room shares Price’s response.
“They may not care about these ephemeral concepts like legitimacy and recognition. In the past, their past behavior suggests that there’s not a whole lot of confidence.”
Price is correct. We’re not talking about a political group that gets excited about joint statements and coalitions. The Taliban is clearly about power.
Anyone who has spent time looking into the history of the Taliban knows they aren’t shaking in their boots over the latest public statement from the White House or the United Nations. They were excited to see the American flag come down and get their hands on American-made weapons and gear.
The reasons the Taliban has not taken control earlier had nothing to do with statements or words on a screen. They saw soldiers and weapons in the way to their path of power. With troops gone, they have not moved ahead to do what they want. Unfortunately, what they want is to take over the government and rule by strict Islamic law, something that could endanger remaining Americans as well as women and children across Afghanistan.
