    Wait, what??
    The F happened here, did the U.S ask for Mongolian advisers or something????

    The Golden Horde was quite a bit more successful over there than everyone else so they might have been on to something... Cool

    lool. I'll tell you what I'm noticing very obviously is that 20+ years later and with a country where something like 70% of the population is under 25 or something like that (don't hold me to those exact numbers but they're in the ballpark) is that there is a new generation within that older generation that might just see more of an appeal to the fun things in life than the strict rules under the Taliban. The same exists within the Taliban themselves as we can see. The old Taliban would've blown up the bumper cars and set the entire amusement park ablaze. Hung the guys making fools of themselves on the trampoline and beheaded many people by now. So at least for now, we're seeing a slightly new generation within the elders and who knows how that's going to transpire moving forward.

    loll. I bet you the US military asked them to join since they're basically the eastern Asian version of the Taliban and are hardened mountain trackers etc. that the US military was thinking of using as field advisers against the Taliban.

    Licking the neo-con's balls like everyone else on the map

    This was the 'hyperpower' era of American power, remember

    I honestly don't know why they actually bothered getting El Salvador in on the action too. And Tonga? I think I like heard of that country once in my life. Maybe. Do they play rugby or something?
    I mean what, was it really all just about the PR of having as big a 'coalition of the willing' as possible? Carnival of nations

    the twitter account states they are PMC's?. But who contracted them?.
    Its their contractor's responsibility to inform them to GTFO.

    I dont know the local situation and circumstances of course. So i am taking an guess here.
    But from my personal experience dealing with PMC's in Afghanistan. No NATO army in Afghanistan deal's with them.

    I/we encountered them in Afghanistan as well, But as they operate outside rules of engagement and its most of the time unclear who they belong to. NATO armies treat's them as unknown armed participants and avoid them.
    Mostly PMC's are hired for jobs the regular army does not want to be associated with.

    I am curious who hired them.

    Lets just say it would not be the first time the U.S leave's allies behind.
    But after the whole blackwater incident, NATO army's stayed away from hiring gaurd/combat PMC's.

    So, they where clearly left behind by someone. But who?.

    Not sure, some sources say PMCs, some say military

    Might be these guys, but mb they left long ago already:
    https://tolonews.com/afghanistan/ukraine-increase-number-troops-afghanistan

    There's also info that 274 Georgian servicemen have been left behind. Can't be for real..

    Anyway, apparently there was an ukro plane that departed 2 days ago meant to evacuate their people, that also was meant to pick up some of the Georgians.

    In the end only 7 Ukrainian citizens boarded that plane, and 73 "commercial passengers", who paid up to 15k dollars for the ride - citizens of Afghanistan, the Netherlands and Croatia at the minimum

    They even boasted about it:

    Of course what they didn't say in that tweet is that they haven't even evacuated all their citizens on that flight (there are 12 still stranded on that military base), nevermind the Georgians

    Compare the Western moral panic about women's rights in Afghanistan with the acceptance of US backing of the Saudi monarchy, and arming and financing Al-Qaeda in Syria

    The contrast highlights how Western outrage is selectively manufactured when it suits foreign policy interests

    I do recall asking this.

    Thanks for the link.

    And this theft is only part of it.  The amount they extracted from Afghanistan over the decades is gotta be massive.  Not to mention the human lives they wasted especially with that whole Opium issue too.

    Do you know what I find exceptionally interesting?
    The amount of it.
    $9+ bln reserves for a shithole like Afghanistan means, that they were simply shaved to the naked skin by their Murican gauleiters.
    Keeping in mind of course, where that cash was kept.

    Russia was not forced to retreat. It was alone Gorbys decision. He wanted to please the west. In 89 Afghanistan had a functioning government, armed forces, even something of an economy.

    Won't mean much, no support, landlocked, food, and ammo supplies will quickly become a concern.

    Taliban will crush him eventually. Far too late for this but hey at least someone decided to fight back.

    Former Afghan leader Ghani reportedly stole US 169 million by fleeing Afghanistan, 18.08.2021

    Afghanistan's ambassador to Tajikistan calls the former Afghan president a "traitor" and reveals that he stole US 169 million (R 8 892 million) from the National Treasury.

    Former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, who fled the country, stole US 169 million from the National Treasury, Afghanistan's ambassador to Tajikistan Muhammad Zahir Agbar said on his Facebook account.

    The Afghan ambassador called Ghani's escape a "betrayal of the state and the nation," and claimed that he "stole US 169 million from the National Treasury."

    The diplomat said that he recognizes vice president Amrullah Saleh as the leader of Afghanistan, given that, according to the Constitution of the country, in case of absence, flight or death of the president, power is transferred to this official.
    Agbar stated that he addressed Interpol requesting the arrest of Ashraf Ghani to hand him over to an international court.

    In turn, the head of the National Central Office of Interpol in Tajikistan, Shakhrier Nazriev, told Sputnik that they did not receive such a request for the arrest of the former Afghan President.

    "First, They [Afghanistan] should address a search request to the Secretary General of Interpol, after that we will study it," Nazriev explained.

    Earlier, the vice president of Afghanistan, Amrullah Saleh, stated that, unlike Ghani, he stayed in the country and, according to the Constitution, he is the interim leader of the Afghan state. Saleh's forces took control of the Charikar District of Parwan province, defeating the Taliban (a terrorist organization banned in Russia and other countries), a Sputnik source said.
