The Taliban have vowed to keep fighting in Afghanistan ‘for 100 years’ after Donald Trump dramatically cancelled peace talks with the extremist militants.

Taliban leaders claimed they had already rejected Trump’s overtures and vowed that ‘we will continue our jihad’ nearly 18 years after they were forced from power.

The article goes on to state the following:

Trump’s Twitter announcement came at a sensitive time, with a string of significant days this week including the 9/11 anniversary, and an Afghan presidential election later this month.

Afghans are now bracing for a possible new wave of Taliban violence as the insurgents vow to battle against the so-called ‘foreign occupation’ and warned that ‘more Americans will die’.

President Trump tweeted the following announcement on Saturday:

Unbeknownst to almost everyone, the major Taliban leaders and, separately, the President of Afghanistan, were going to secretly meet with me at Camp David on Sunday. They were coming to the United States tonight. Unfortunately, in order to build false leverage, they admitted to..

….an attack in Kabul that killed one of our great great soldiers, and 11 other people. I immediately cancelled the meeting and called off peace negotiations. What kind of people would kill so many in order to seemingly strengthen their bargaining position? They didn’t, they….

….only made it worse! If they cannot agree to a ceasefire during these very important peace talks, and would even kill 12 innocent people, then they probably don’t have the power to negotiate a meaningful agreement anyway. How many more decades are they willing to fight?

The Daily Mail further reported:

As if in answer to Trump’s question, a Taliban source told The Times: ‘We will fight. We have fought for 18 years and we will fight for a hundred years. We will continue our jihad. They will have to pay a price.”
