The Talibans extraordinary gain in Afghanistan now includes the outskirts of Kabul. Kabul is the main seat of governmental power in Afghanistan and is understood to be in imminent danger.
In the early morning hours of Sunday, it emerged that Taliban fighters had overrun most of the outskirts leading into Kabul. Their latest gains have reportedly cut off Kabul’s highway access to nearby city craters and vital resources.
The problems only scratch the surface starting there. A rise again of the Taliban means that world governments will now have to communicate with a terrorist cell in order to gain access in any way to Afghanistan.
It means that women will once again be denied healthcare rights; birth control, education and more. Taliban members do not believe that women should be anything more than child bearers and sexual objects.
The country is when it falls completely expected to become a safe haven for terrorists.
Many experts agree that like before — the Taliban government this time around wouldn’t be much different from the last. Before they were initially toppled by the Americans in 2001 — during a questionable invasion in the first place — they held Afghanistan an with an iron fist. A prime focus for the Taliban appears to be reverting Muslim women back to the “old days” when they were subservient to what people in the west know as a bad date.
When Kabul’s when airport falls — millions of Afghans will be forced to make life altering decisions.
The airport is generally considered a town or country’s main access point for entry and exit. Without it, people have no quick and fairly simple ability to flee. As a result of the impending airport collapse to the Taliban, locals will have to make a break for the border as if it would be their last.
Just as fast as they invaded the Americans are running. According to reports from the weekend, CIA spies are closing shop.
According to reports published over the weekend, CIA spies and embassy officials have been ordered to destroy equipment and run. It is a wild turn of events for a country that once sought to topple and install it’s own desired form of government. Of course, it is another tick in the box of failures by the American government.
