It’s time for retribution! The Taliban are demanding billions in war reparations from the United Kingdom.
After seizing control of Afghanistan, the Taliban are expected to demand billions of pounds in reparations from the British government.
Following their takeover of power in late August, Islamic militants may require the funds to help the country’s struggling economy.
According to reports, the Taliban believes the United Kingdom will give in to their demands. UK veterans who have served in the country since the US and its allies invaded in 2001 have called the likely move “an atrocity.”
The Taliban have murdered dissidents, tortured captives, and pushed women into hiding since taking power in August.
“Britain is ready to pay us war reparations,” Noor Mohommad Mutawakel of the Taliban’s Ministry of Information and Culture told The Daily Mirror.
“Other countries involved in the conflict must be willing to pay as well.”
A Whitehall source, on the other hand, expressed skepticism about the UK’s willingness to pay.
“We don’t know what they’re going to ask for yet,” a source told the Daily Mail.
“It might be in the billions of dollars for all parties concerned.”
“Whether or not we pay it is a different story.”
“It is an atrocity for the terrorist group that took over the country to demand compensation from countries that fought in Afghanistan to assist the legitimate government,” Colonel Richard Kemp, a former infantry battalion commanding officer in Afghanistan, said.
“The British government should not even consider paying these murderous killers a single dime.”
“This will be the first of many demands from a tyranny capable of mass murder, torture, and enslavement.”
“A government that is destroying the country.”
After the United Kingdom, the United States, and other nations withdrew their soldiers, the Taliban took control of Afghanistan on August 15.
They inherited a country that was already suffering from drought and extreme poverty as a result of decades of brutal strife.
The economy, on the other hand, has been on the verge of collapsing since the Taliban assumed power.
