New Delhi : The Taliban has once again taken control in Afghanistan. Now its government will be here. The way this country has been occupied by the Taliban has surprised everyone. Reports quoted US intelligence officials as saying that the capital Kabul would be captured by the Taliban in the next 90 days, but just a few days after this report, the Taliban took control of the capital Kabul.
The Taliban had started preparations for the conflict long ago.
According to the news agency Reuters, Taliban fighters say that they started preparing for the conflict a long time ago. They built their relationships with the country’s smaller political parties and military officials. Tribal elders were also taken into their confidence. Let us tell you that the Taliban had previously ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001. The report said that after the announcement of the withdrawal of US and NATO forces, the Western-backed administration had lost confidence and officials began to run away from their responsibility.
Taliban did not want to fight this time – experts
Asfandyar Mir, a South Asia security analyst at Stanford University, said the Taliban did not want to fight. In fact, they wanted the country’s political process to collapse. Mir says that the way cities and towns came under Taliban control, it surprised them too. The northern regions of the country, where the Taliban are considered weak, also easily came under their control.
‘The announcement of the withdrawal of Western countries broke morale’
“Afghanistan’s leaders surrender not because they have changed their thinking or they have become holy,” he said. This happened because the dollars will not reach them now. Mir referred to the military and financial aid Afghanistan received from Western countries for two decades. Mir said, ‘They surrendered like sheep.’
President Ashraf Ghani has left the country and most members of his administration have gone into hiding. They could not be contacted. Ghani’s defense minister also criticized the president.
