OPINION | Americans gone from Afghanistan: Worst retreat ever!

America’s longest warfare in historical past got here to an unceremonious finish on Monday midnight after the final 5 US -17 army cargo jets left Kabul airport. This was adopted by nightlong heavy celebratory firing by Taliban fighters throughout Kabul, which went on until early morning. After spending greater than $2 trillion on a 20-year-long warfare that took greater than 1,70,000 lives, together with 2,461 American troops, the US in the end did not defeat the Taliban and left behind billions of {dollars} price tanks, armoured autos, plane, choppers, rifles and different weapons.

US army commanders claimed that they’ve deactivated a lot of the armoured autos, Chinook helicopters and different plane left behind at Kabul airport making them unusable, by destroying their techniques, however that declare seems to be debatable. Taliban fighters instantly took management of the complete Kabul airport and their spokesman proclaimed “full independence”, 20 years after the US attacked Afghanistan after the 9/11 terror assaults. The twentieth anniversary of 9/11 in New York will happen 9 days from now.
It was a hasty evacuation marked by massacre brought on by suicide bomb assaults, Drone strike and rocket assaults in Kabul for the final two weeks. The US troops left behind lakhs of Afghans determined to flee Taliban rule. These included many former Afghan military officers holding legitimate visas to enter the US. Their future is now in jeopardy. Hundreds of US residents have additionally been left behind and their future is unsure. US President Joe Biden stated, the Taliban has made commitments to offer protected passage to Americans, Afghan companions and overseas nationals who need to go away Afghanistan. “The world will hold them to their commitments”, Biden stated.
Former US President Donald Trump stated, “Never in history has withdrawal from war been handled so badly or incompetently as the Biden administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan”. He stated, the US “must demand return of all equipment from Afghanistan, and that includes every penny of the 85 billion dollars in cost”. It was Trump’s administration that had signed the peace take care of Taliban in Doha for the peaceable withdrawn of US troops from Afghanistan. While executing that deal, the Biden administration carried out improperly deliberate, hasty evacuation which led to a number of lakhs of Afghans and several other thousand American and different nationals present process ordeal for the final two weeks. Many are nonetheless caught inside Afghanistan looking at a brutal and arbitrary Taliban rule.
In my prime time present ‘Aaj Ki Baat’ on Monday night time, we confirmed visuals of how 1000’s of Afghan girls, carrying small youngsters, negotiating powerful hilly terrain with a view to cross the Afghanistan-Iran border. These males, girls and youngsters have left their houses and properties, and gathered no matter valuables they might, to march in the direction of the Iran border.
Iran has already closed all its border examine posts with Afghanistan after the return to energy of Taliban. The widespread Afghans are going by hilly terrain from Herat and Nimroz provinces of their bid to enter Iran. Many of those Afghan households had left their houses two weeks in the past, when Taliban captured Kabul, and walked greater than 500 km to succeed in the Iran border. More than half of the practically 4 crore Afghan inhabitants are unwilling to remain below Taliban regime.
At the principle crossing factors at Torkham, Spin Boldak and Angur Ada on Afghan-Pakistan border, a whole lot of Pakistan Ranger troopers are pointing rifles at 1000’s of Afghans looking for to cross over to Pakistan. Afghanistan has a 2,000 km lengthy border referred to as Durand Line with Pakistan, and final month when preventing broke out with Afghan military, the Taliban seized a lot of the areas on AfPak border to start out its march in the direction of capital Kabul. At Chaman border crossing, throughout pre-August 15 interval, practically 4,000 Afghans used to cross into Pakistan day by day, however this quantity has now shot as much as 18,000 day by day.
Reports and pictures have come from Afghanistan’s borders with Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan, the place 1000’s of Afghans have began assembling to go away their nation. There are 12 border examine posts, and at most of those posts, entry of Afghans has been banned. Some nations have erected large partitions with barbed wire fencing to cease immigration. Countries like Iran and Turkey have refused to take  any extra Afghans.
I really feel unhappy watching such visuals. I’m wondering what are the compulsions that pressured these Afghan households to go away their dwelling and fireplace. The widespread Afghans don’t belief Taliban’s guarantees of adopting a reasonable line. They know they’d be subjected to inhuman cruelties within the months to come back when Taliban will start implementing the legal guidelines of Shariat. There was this picture of Taliban fighters inside a helicopter carrying a person tied to a series from the chopper. Such pictures have despatched shudders within the backbone of widespread Afghans.
The massacre that happened close to Kabul airport throughout the suicide assaults by Islamic State (Khorasan group), the American Drone assault on “IS target” in Kabul on Sunday,  and the firing of 5 a number of rockets on Monday by IS terrorists on in the direction of US army positions contained in the airport, has brought on scare amongst widespread Afghans. People really feel that within the coming months there might be extra preventing between Taliban and IS, Taliban and Northern Alliance, adopted by brutal killings by hardcore Taliban fighters.
In ‘Aaj Ki Baat’ we confirmed visuals of rifle-toting Taliban fighters standing behind an Afghan information anchor, shivering with concern, inside a tv studio. These Taliban fighters had been keenly listening to the information stories that had been being learn by the anchor. These pictures portend the reign of Taliban terror, that will likely be seen within the days and weeks to come back.
Women workers in media, banks and authorities places of work have already been ordered to not report for responsibility. There was additionally report of Taliban brutally killing a famend Afghan people singer Fawad Andrabi close to his dwelling, practically 100 km from Kabul. Taliban fighters went to his dwelling, sipped tea, then dragged him out, and shot him within the head in entrance of frightened onlookers.
Those who harbour the false phantasm that every one could be properly below Taliban rule after the Americans go away, ought to suppose over once more after watching these pictures and movies. Already, in cities, there’s acute scarcity of meals and commodities, and ATMs and banks have run out of money. Prices of bread, meals gadgets and mineral water have gone by the roof because of dwindling provides. Most of the banks are closed and prospects are unable to withdraw their very own financial savings. The Afghan central financial institution has its funds with IMF and World Bank frozen.
Old Al Qaeda terrorists have began rising into the limelight once more. Aminul Haque, who was safety in-charge of Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, surfaced in Nangarhar province of Afghanistan, dwelling to greater than 3,000 IS terrorists. Aminul Haque was the chief of Al Qaeda safety, when the US was bombing Osama’s hideouts inside Tora Bora caves in 2001.
With the US leaving Afghanistan unceremoniously, the Taliban has hit an enormous jackpot of US-made plane, helicopters, tanks, armoured autos, Humvees, rifles and different weapons, price billions of {dollars}. The Taliban leaders by no means dreamed they’d pay money for such an enormous cache of weapons, that may make any small nation a army energy. Taliban leaders by no means imagined {that a} three lakh sturdy Afghan military, educated by US troops, would meekly give up.
The Afghans by no means dreamt that the US would depart them excessive and dry after utilizing them for 20 years. The Taliban by no means imagined that an elected President would flee the nation and hand over the capital Kabul to them, and not using a battle. The Taliban leaders had been by no means ready for such a fast, speedy victory.
This is the rationale why the Taliban management remains to be unable to kind a coherent authorities and a well-defined governance construction. Taliban by no means imagined that the US military would depart hurriedly leaving billions of {dollars} price weapons of their fingers. The similar US military, which fought  and killed the Taliban fighters for twenty years, has handed over to them an enormous armoury of army weapons and techniques. Thousands of Afghans, who sided with the US in establishing democracy and governance in Afghanistan for twenty years, have been left excessive and dry by their American patrons.
They are actually dwelling a world of terror with loss of life looking at them. On one hand, the Taliban have 1000’s of armoured autos, Humvees, lakhs of assault rifles, plane and helicopters, and then again, the Afghans who helped the US, are locked inside their houses ready for the inevitable. The courageous Afghan girls, who had discarded their ‘burqa’, and had pursued increased training to reside a contemporary life, are actually looking at hell.
The US, which inspired these courageous Afghan girls, to go away a puritanical, fundamentalist lifestyle, and made them yearn for liberty and better training, has left them excessive and dry. The world has by no means seen such a travesty of belief that the widespread Afghan had for the Americans. None can predict what’s going to occur in Afghanistan within the coming weeks and months. Afghans are looking at a future that can witness brutal torture and killings and this may absolutely convey an finish to liberties loved for twenty years by Afghan households.
