The Taliban have mocked America by taking a photo that shares striking resemblance to the famous Iwo Jima photo.

The photo was released by the Taliban in an effort to further hurt America’s reputation after the catastrophe of a withdrawal in Afghanistan.

From News 4 San Antonio:

WASHINGTON (SBG) — A little-known Taliban fighting unit, the Badri 313 Batallion, this week was spotted patrolling parts of Afghanistan’s capital of Kabul in newly released propaganda videos from the insurgent group.

The videos show heavily armed Taliban soldiers carrying U.S. and U.S. ally-made weapons and gear that appear to be stolen from various allied militaries. Various helicopters and light attack aircraft, including 35 American Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, are also now reportedly under Taliban control.

In one propaganda photo, it appears the Taliban is mocking one of the most iconic American images from World War II — Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima.

Taliban fighters are typically seen wearing turbans and vests over shalwar kameez clothing while carrying old Soviet guns, many from the Soviet-Afghan War which happened from 1979-89.
