Melbourne, Feb 14 (ANI): The US-backed government in Afghanistan may be the next to fall after the collapse of the Hosni Mubarak regime in Egypt, according to the Taliban.
The SITE Intelligence Group quoted The Taliban website as saying that Mubarak's ouster on Friday after three decades in power demonstrates that "many weapons and soldiers and much foreign assistance cannot keep a regime in power and that they cannot always hinder the caravan of 'hope and demands' of a nation."
The Pashto-language statement said the Afghan people would rise up and overthrow the Kabul government due to its corruption and the "atrocities" committed by the United States in the country during a nearly decade-old military campaign, News.com.au reports.
The United States will eventually turn against Karzai's government just as it did against Mubarak in Egypt, it continued.
The group also urged Egyptians to form an Islamic government and to "foil the plots of the foreign enemies," according to SITE. (ANI)
