Taliban in Afghanistan | Afghanistan: Taliban occupation of Afghanistan: what happened and what will happen now
Fearing people bad memories of the brutality done by Taliban in the past from 1996 to 2001
Kabul: The Taliban took control of Afghanistan two weeks before the full withdrawal of US troops after a two-decade-long war. Afghan security forces trained by its allies succumbed.
After the horrific terrorist attacks on the US on September 11, 2001, Washington rushed to teach a lesson to Osama bin Laden and the Taliban who sheltered him and ousted the rebels from power. Later, the US also killed Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
Taliban again started increasing its influence in the country
After the withdrawal of American troops now began, the Taliban again began to increase their influence in the country and within a few days forced the West-backed Afghan government to kneel by capturing the entire country. The people of Afghanistan are feeling insecure. The huge crowd at Kabul airport to leave the country makes it very clear to what extent people are afraid of the Taliban.
Bad memories of the brutality perpetrated by the Taliban are terrifying
The people are haunted by the bad memories of the brutality committed by the Taliban in the past from 1996 to 2001. Most worried are the women who were forced into home confinement by the Taliban in the past. Former US President Donald Trump last year announced plans to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan during his term in office. At the same time, the current President of America, Joe. Biden actually executed this plan and set a deadline of August 31 for the withdrawal of the last soldier.
Billions of dollars spent to train security forces
The US and NATO allies spent billions of dollars to train Afghan security forces, but the West-backed Afghan government was mired in corruption. Afghan commanders inflated the number of soldiers to manipulate resources, and when war came, the soldiers were short of ammunition and even food. The result turned out to be their defeat.
There was also news of President Ashraf Ghani fleeing the country.
The Taliban also entered Kabul on Sunday and meanwhile, news of President Ashraf Ghani’s escape from the country also came. This was enough to dishearten and frighten the people of the country. Men and women and children are all scared and they are wondering what will happen next. Seeing the people weeping, one can understand the darkness towards which Afghanistan seems to be heading.
