Iran, Taliban rebuffing U.S. diplomacy, upping threats against Americans under Biden

Iran and the Taliban are intensifying their threats against the U.S., spurning the Biden administration's diplomatic outreach to both rogue regimes.

Last month, the Taliban told the U.S. during talks in Doha, Qatar, that it will deploy 2,000 suicide bombers to Washington, D.C., if the Biden administration insists on posting the same number of troops at the U.S. embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, according to a new report by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

The acting defense minister of the Taliban government in Afghanistan issued an identical threat on Twitter.

"If America wants 2,000 [American] troops at its embassy in Afghanistan, we also want 2,000 Fidayeen Mujahideen [suicide bombers] from the Fateh Force at the embassy of Afghanistan in America," wrote Maulvi Mohammad Yaqoob Mujahid, son of the late Taliban founder Mullah Mohammad Omar.
