Afghanistan has fallen to the Taliban, which the U.S. furnished with weapons at one time, and then after years of training with aid, the U.S. sent thousands of young military members to kill in a fashion that resembles a horrible science experiment gone wrong. The private sector military complex made billions, politicians were rewarded with monetary gain, and the entire mess was financed by the hard earned taxes confiscated by the government.
Next, we'll see the tyranny of the Taliban whip the populace back in line. Sharia law will be upheld with violence, and many will suffer horrible deaths. It's how they live, and they don't care what the rest of the world thinks. They've suffered through invasions throughout history, and two of the most powerful nations in the world left in disgrace for their meddling.
Eventually, the country will return to the tribal conflicts that leave the country in constant turmoil. Those willing to throw decency to the wind will take advantage of the poppy crops and reap huge fortunes. The tribal politics will demand constant retribution for supposed infractions by others, and violence will be the method of solving all perceived problems.
New reports show China is entertaining the idea of relations with Afghanistan. They might be successful in their endeavors, since they've practiced ruthless methods for centuries. It might be the big change for the country, and the citizens that never really moved past the times of the past will find the same results of the rulers of the past. The carnage will be terrible to see, and the population will be reduced to numbers that will take centuries to replace.
