Always thought Bush was the worst president in US history then trump came along and made him look good.

It would be nice if someone supported these guys so they could fight the same sort of insurgency against the Taliban they fought against the West.


$1:
The Panjshir Valley north of Afghanistan's capital Kabul is the final major centre of resistance to the Taliban, but analysts say the fighters gathered there will struggle if the Islamist hardliners launch a full-scale attack.

Surrounded by the high peaks of the Hindu Kush north of Kabul, the Panjshir has long had a reputation as a bastion of resistance -- legendary military commander Ahmad Shah Massoud successfully defended it during the Soviet-Afghan War and the civil war with the Taliban up to his death in 2001.

Right now, it is the only area confirmed to be beyond Taliban control after a lightning offensive saw the rest of the country quickly capitulate.

Amrullah Saleh, latterly the country's vice president and a key powerbroker under the Western-backed governments of the last two decades, and Ahmad Massoud, the son of Ahmad Shah Massoud, have both taken refuge in the area and called for an uprising against the Taliban.

"I write from the Panjshir Valley today, ready to follow in my father's footsteps, with mujahideen fighters who are prepared to once again take on the Taliban," Ahmad Massoud wrote in the Washington Post, calling on the United States to arm his forces.

Saleh, who formerly headed Afghanistan's intelligence service that worked closely with the West, said: "I will never be under one ceiling with the Taliban."

The way I see it, the book has been closed on this. We should have never gone there in the first place and lost so many brave warriors over NOTHING. Having been one of those people on a highway 401 bridge saluting some of our fallen heroes back, it not only made me sad as hell, but angered me very much to see the needless cost of a war we shouldn't have been fighting.

Afghanistan is never going to change unless all those scared citizens trying to flee band together and fight back to the death. Countless attempts have been made over the course of human history to deal with Afghanistan and/or take it over, and all failed miserably. As big of a disaster that country is now, we need to wash out hands of it and admit that it can't be fixed, and we should stop trying.

Money, soldiers, military equipment, and good intentions didn't get the job done and never will. Afghanistan needs to figure itself out.

Just about became an immigrant hater seeing an Afghan Canadian on the news ranting that the blood of any relatives killed by the Taliban will be on Trudeau's hands because he wasn't prepared.
Sorry, no one was prepared for what happened so quickly. We were lied to and never told we fought for a nation run by surrender monkeys.
