On this day in history:
The US and Britain launched a new crusade against the Muslims of Afghanistan. Eight years later their forces are still occupying the country and slowly pushing in to Pakistan the target of their next crusade.

Muslims should be in no doubt that to the kuffar Muslim blood is worthless. The kuffar are not our awliyya (friends and protectors).
On the 60 Minutes US TV Show (5/12/1996) the presenter Lesley Stahl interviewed Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq asked: “We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?” Secretary of State Madeleine Albright replied: “I think this is a very hard choice, but the price–we think the price is worth it.”
According to official estimates civilian casualties to date in Afghanistan are between 20,896 – 60,085 deaths. If the US, Britain or other NATO members are asked is 60,000 Muslim civilians a price worth paying, they will indeed reply “Yes!”
The kuffar will never protect Muslim lives unless it achieves some material benefit for them. However, to Allah سبحانه وتعالى Muslim blood is not cheap and is very valuable and must be protected.
The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “The wiping away of the World means less to Allah than a Believer to be killed unjustly.” (ibn Maja)
Only the future Khilafah will defend the honour and lives of Muslims in Afghanistan and throughout the world since the Khilafah is a general leadership over all the Muslims. The armed forces of the Khilafah will be used to secure Islamic interests and defend Muslim blood. They will not be used to secure western interests and kill Muslims as we see the Pakistan Army doing in Swat.
The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Only the Imam is a shield, behind whom you fight and you protect yourself with, so if he orders by taqwa and is just then he has reward for that, and if he orders by other than that then it is against himself.” (Muslim)
