Media: US offered the Taliban to return billions of dollars in exchange for creating a hotbed of tension in Iran

After the Taliban returned to power in Afghanistan, the situation on the border with neighboring countries began to deteriorate. The Taliban had a lot of questions to their neighbors about water resources, "goat trails" and other reasons for quarrels. They do not even hesitate to challenge the stronger states - Pakistan and Iran.

It should be noted that regarding Iran, the actions of the Taliban are very favorably viewed in Washington. In August 2021, the US blocked the funds (money) of Afghanistan under the pretext of "protection". All this time, the Taliban are trying to negotiate with the Americans about the unblocking of dollar accounts.

It has now become known that the US has offered the Taliban to unlock Afghanistan's gold and foreign exchange reserves in dollars in exchange for "Iran becoming unsafe." This was reported to the public by the Iranian English edition of The Tehran Times, a daily newspaper that positions itself as the foreign voice of the Islamic Revolution.

The publication of this and other media in the region said that the Taliban movement is sending "thousands of fighters and hundreds of suicide bombers" to the Iranian border. Thus, the US proposal to return billions of dollars to the Taliban in exchange for creating a hotbed of tension in Iran could be considered acceptable in Kabul, but one should not rush to final conclusions.

We remind you that the last major armed confrontation on the Afghan-Iranian border arose at the end of May this year. Then, during the clashes, even artillery was used.

    Eh, now the Americans will constantly blackmail the Taliban, now the Taliban will not see this money as their ears. The Americans will blackmail them as Japan Okinawa. As long as there are skirmishes on the Iranian border, the Taliban will have hope to return the money. In vain, many keep their assets in Western banks - another lesson!

      It's not called "return"!
      This is called HIRE the Taliban with the Afghan money stolen by Washington from Afghanistan, so that the Taliban begin, under the promise of returning the money by the Americans, to fight Iran for the national interests of the United States in the BV.

      IN OTHER WORDS. The US wants to get free "cannon fodder" from the Afghans in the US-Iran war just for a "carrot suspended by Washington in front of the Taliban's nose", like donkeys, so that they harness themselves to bear all the hardships of the war for the Afghans in the US war with Iran over US national interests, instead of the Americans themselves.

    The problems of peaceful coexistence of neighbors are usually solved by simple negotiations between the parties, but where the pi... this gets in, they try to throw green firewood into the conflict to the maximum, so one of the factors of stability is the destruction of the leverage of dollars by any available means. At the same time, you need to understand that the dollar coverage area is the whole world and national currencies operating on the principle of greenery are what it is.

    Why, no one told the Taliban that half of the "frozen" financial assets of Afghanistan have long been confiscated? And it's not used anywhere. Or are the Taliban ready to lick the American ass for the remaining crumbs? And not just the back.

    Well, the Kremlin needs to tighten up and cooperate more closely with Iran. Especially in the area of ​​weapons. You can also participate in Iran's nuclear program!
