Americans – The end of the Afghanistan odyssey is a blow to the empire. Getting out means no more deployments for a mission that had lost the plot a decade ago.
Taliban – Online videos showed the Taliban rolling up cities with little resistance. They pick up a lot of equipment donated by the Pentagon.
Lord Miles – This British lad went on a holiday to Kabul as the collapse happened. He had to hide, find safe houses, pass through Taliban checkpoints but he made his way out of the country. He confused the Taliban by saying he was from Wales. MI6 should hire him.
The American Empire – Leaving is good but the speed of Afghanistan’s collapse is a major exclamation point to all the terrible proclamations from the US military brass, State and CIA through the war. In a 20 year span, it morphed into such an abomination that the Taliban appear as freedom fighters.
OnlyFans Content Creators – Wait for the dust to settle but looks like Hans question of OnlyFans being their OnlyPlans will be answered.
Liberal Narratives – Afghanistan nation building, reopening but maybe locking down again, economic snapback, vaccine effectiveness… everything is cracking.
In short, an unserious country mired in the most masturbatory hysterics over bullshit dramas waged war against an insurgency of religious zealots fired by a 7th-century morality, and utterly and totally lost.
