The Taliban will Get a country….
President Biden will get America out….
The Taliban will be the victors….
The American President suffers a lesson in how NOT to do certain things…..
And will now have his military effect a HUGE evacuation of thousands of people it warned their commander would be a result of his hurried exit from the country….
Biden will hope that his feeling that the Taliban will HAVE to worry about governing effects their long term actions and there will be no mass revenge ….There fighters have been told to NOT overrun the city …Letting the Americans and other’s empty out their people and the nucleus probably of any political opposition to their control of the country….Probably over a million Afghan’s have fled the country….There will invariably be rifts among the Taliban itself since the common enemy will be gone….The Taliban will actually NEED the government’s military and police to govern….
America exits the country in a replay of its exit of Saigon decades ago….
President Biden gets his baptism in foreign affairs….
He cannot blame this on Donald Trump….
One hope’s that there is no bloodshed and Biden can come out of this ahead in the long run…
He IS the President …..
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement that the group’s fighters had been instructed not to push further into the city with force. The militants had made recent gains after negotiating with local leaders. “We want to enter Kabul with peace, and talks are underway” with the government, he said.
Negotiators representing the national government are headed to Doha, Qatar Sunday to discuss an agreement with the Taliban’s political leadership, a senior official close to Afghan president Ashraf Ghani said. Members of the militant group were also at the presidential palace for talks on Sunday afternoon, according to two Afghan officials.
“There is an agreement that there will be a transitional administration for orderly transfer of power,” said acting Interior Minister Abdul Satar Mirzakwal on Sunday. He added that security forces were being deployed across Kabul to ensure order.
The Taliban’s lightning quick advance to the Afghan capital came as helicopters landed at the U.S. Embassy early Sunday and armored diplomatic vehicles were seen leaving the area around the compound, the Associated Press reported. Diplomats scrambled to destroy sensitive documents, sending smoke from the embassy’s roof, the AP said, citing anonymous U.S. military officials.
U.S. personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan are being relocated to the airport to “ensure they can operate safely and securely” as the Taliban encircle Kabul, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told ABC News on Sunday….
The Taliban’s capture of Jalalabad, close to Afghanistan’s border with Pakistan, came with minimal resistance after militants and local elders negotiated the fall of the city’s government. Leaders in Jalalabad were given safe passage from the city, according to Reuters.
Both Bagram and Sorobi districts in Kabul province also surrendered without shots being fired, according to an official, adding that the militants had made “political deals” with local leaders.
Afghan forces on Sunday handed over Bagram air base — once the U.S. military’s most important airfield in the country — to the Taliban, a district chief told the AP. The air base holds a prison containing 5,000 inmates.
Several other countries that had retained a diplomatic presence in Kabul even as Taliban gains accelerated began withdrawing their staff. The British ambassador will be airlifted from Afghanistan by Monday evening, the Sunday Telegraph newspaper reported. Iranian officials said its embassy in Kabul would be evacuated by Monday, according to Reuters.
The Danish and Norwegian embassies also recently said they would suspend operations and move staff out of the country.
President Biden on Saturday had announced that more troops would be sent to the capital to assist the departure of Americans there, expanding the number of troops sent to Kabul to 5,000. That includes an additional 1,000 troops that had been held at the ready in Kuwait, and at least 650 who had stayed behind in Afghanistan with the mission of protecting the U.S. Embassy and airport after the United States began withdrawing its military….
A look at how America wadded into this….
