internationally backed government and the establishment of Taliban control in Afghanistan

It is difficult to answer the question of which picture is becoming a symbol of the fall of the internationally backed government and the establishment of Taliban control in Afghanistan. A picture of a military helicopter hovering over the Americans from their embassy in Kabul to the airport, or a scene of Afghans desperately trying to board an American military transport plane to leave the country Taliban control in Afghanistan ? The first film is almost a remake of the scene where Saigon left 45 years ago.

The basis of this image of the Taliban is its past regime. The reason for their further astonishment is their self-made, surrendered army of three lakh armed men without spending any bullets.

The United States and its allies have been talking about withdrawing troops since 2014. An attempt at a political settlement for him had been going on for a long time. The recent meeting of the Chinese Foreign Minister with Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the head of the Taliban’s political bureau, leaves little room for debate. But even before that, Mollah Baradar’s meeting with the US Secretary of State last year agreed to withdraw troops and hold political talks. In the United States, however, Mike Pompeo’s Republican Party and its allies are now blaming President Biden for the crisis. The uneasiness and disagreement among US allies over the deal with the Taliban is also clear.

However, the biggest concern is the growing differences between major and regional powers over the future of Afghanistan and its relationship with the Taliban. US-mediated talks on the one hand; On the other hand, parallel initiatives of China, Russia and Pakistan. This disagreement on the question of recognizing the Taliban government is becoming increasingly clear. India, its regional rival, is most concerned about Pakistan’s role in Afghanistan.

Many have reminded that the military intervention of the former Soviet Union has failed. But the United States has not backed down from the so-called war on terror. Not to mention the Scottish historian William Dalrymple, who hinted at the failure of the military campaign. Dalrimple went to his village Gandama with Karzai cabinet member Anwar Khan Jagdalak in Jalalabad.

Jagdalak himself is a member of the Ghilzai tribe. After visiting the village, Dalrimple asked Jagdalak, Is there any similarity between 1842 and 2006? The answer was, ‘It’s absolutely one. Yet foreigners came for their own sake, not for ours; So again. They say we are your friends, we want to help. But they were lying.
