Afghanistan Starts Its Journey To Caliphate.
I used this picture years ago. A Taliban meeting as The West were pouring billions of munitions into trying to defeat them.Since Vietnam, however The West's paymaster has failed to deliver more bangs to the buck sufficiently to have any success other than for the arms dealers.
So as Kabul got a taste of what's to come. We can but sigh and bemoan the total lack of diplomacy corporate driven politics has failed to deliver. Capitalism has been hijacked and its limited success, to enrich all under its banner, long lost. Not a pretty outcome.
