      Auto-translated:

      The population tries to flee from Kabul. Prelude to what lies ahead. What a mess. Let the West and the US not complain in the future. Millions of people, especially women, abandoned to their fate. International political failure.

      Taliban’s white flag over the presidential palace in Kabul.

      Kabul airport this evening. People are waiting near the runway to escape by air.

      “I was detained in Guantanamo bay camp for several years”, says one of the Taliban leader inside the presidential palace in Kabul.

      Exclusive on Al Jazeera: Taliban live from the Presidential palace in Kabul, Afghanistan.

      They showed an official from the former government handing over the presidential palace to 3 representatives from Taliban.

      Capturing of Kabul by a ragtag militia of shepherds and farmers against the overwhelming might of many superpowers armed with nuclear weapons is the tectonic geopolitical earthquake of the 21st century.
      It shows that faith, courage and perseverance always trumps tyranny…

      That’s more than enough for now.

      That last video looks like the Republicans’ first ad for the 2024 presidential race, should Biden still be alive and able to be propped up.

      We can get back to the business of war.

      What an utter dumpster fire and it just gets progressively worse each passing year.

      The people who were running the country before an imperialist army of PNAC cannon fodder illegally invaded have returned to power 20 years later, after 100,000 of their fellow citizens were butchered. Kind of reminds me of the Nazis illegal invasion of France and marching into Paris in 1940, getting ejected 4 years later, and DeGaulle marching back in. Invaders usually end up getting their just desserts. I just wish the only Americans, or any other of their allies left there to face the Taliban, would be all those who supported this bloodbath in the first place, starting with George W Bush and Dick Cheney.

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

      The socialist government the Soviets backed had full rights for Afghan women, and the American Empire did everything they could to destroy it in favor of the Taliban and other medievalist Muslims. To claim Americans should stay for the sake of the women is hypocrisy in its purist form. BTW, what about American women who can’t get access to affordable health care?

      Humbug.

      Osama bin Laden morphing into pan-Islamic military organizations such as al-Qaeda, you name it. This is what we get and they get and if you want it to stop, then demand that we cut the fucking military budget.

      BTW, you can “call Congress right fucking now!”, but don’t count on getting anything resembling a response because you-know-who has lobbied them long enough that they are owned by the same MIC, if not big pharma and big oil.

      THE END

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...
