After the attacks in Kabul, Biden ordered plans to attack IS

US President Joe Biden announced on Thursday that he had ordered military commanders to draw up operational plans for attacks on the leadership, property and facilities of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization. His words were heard in the White House hours after the bombings near the airport in the Afghan capital Kabul, in which 12 American soldiers were killed and 15 others were injured.

Biden called the killed American soldiers “heroes who took part in a dangerous, selfless mission to save the lives of others.” According to him, they were part of an unprecedented evacuation effort, in which “in 11 days more than 100,000 American citizens, American partners and Afghans who helped us and others were brought to safety.”

“Those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone else who wishes to harm America, know: We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will persecute you and force you to pay.”

According to world agencies, about 60 Afghan civilians were killed and 150 others were injured in suicide bombings at Hamid Karzai Airport. IS claimed responsibility for the attacks. The Afghan militant Taliban movement, which recently occupied the country, has condemned the attacks.

Biden declared that “we will respond with strength and precision – at a time, place and in a way we choose.” However, according to CNN, he refused to provide details of the timing of the event.

“These IS terrorists will not win. We will save the Americans. We will get our Afghan allies out. Our mission will continue. America will not be intimidated.” stressed Biden.

Asked if he thought it was a mistake to rely on the Taliban to secure the perimeter of Kabul Airport, Biden said: “No, I don’t think so. No one (Taliban) trusts them … But it’s in their own interest for us to leave.”

According to Biden, there is no evidence yet of any collusion between the Taliban and the IS that would have resulted in attacks on the airport.

Biden added that the US evacuation mission will continue and will not be “discouraged by terrorists”. He also stressed that he was behind his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan. “I never thought we should sacrifice American lives to try to form a democratic government in Afghanistan; a country that has never been a united country in its entire history.” he said.

“Our interest was to prevent al-Qaeda from reappearing, first and foremost to get (Osama) bin Laden, to overthrow al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and to prevent this from happening again. As I have said a hundred times, terrorism has metastasized all over We have bigger threats coming from other countries, much closer to the US … Ladies and gentlemen, it was time to end the 20-year war. ” he added.

Biden also confirmed August 31 as the deadline for US troops to leave Afghanistan. But as he noted, even after this date, the United States will try to evacuate some Afghan applicants for special immigrant visas from the country.
