The Taliban are riding the high wave, and it’s been happening for nearly three months.

The beginning of August, however, was significant in many ways.

So far, the group has captured 65% of Afghanistan and have taken or threaten to take 11 provincial capitals of the country’s 34.

Faizabad, in the northeastern province of Badakhshan, on August 11th became the ninth capital to be seized by the Taliban.

Since August 6th, the group has also captured Faizabad, Farah, Pul-e-Khumri, Sar-e-Pul, Sheberghan, Aybak, Kunduz, Taluqan and Zaranj.

Fighting continues to be extremely intense in Kandahar city.

The Afghan Armed Forces are providing a semblance of resistance in some parts, especially in the besieged northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif. President Ashraf Ghani visited the city to rally the troops, it appears to have had some result, but it all seems too little too late.

All gateways to Kabul, which lies in a valley surrounded by mountains, were choked with civilians fleeing violence.

The Afghan interior minister said that Afghanistan is arming local groups as part of a wider three-phase plan to fight back against the Taliban’s advances.

Taliban fighters could isolate Afghanistan’s capital in 30 days and possibly take it over in 90, US intelligence estimated.

The new assessment of how long Kabul could stand is a result of the rapid gains the Taliban had been making around the country as US-led foreign forces leave.

This all comes down to how the fighting will progress from now on. The Afghanistan’s government is attempting to shake things up, with the chief of staff of the army, as well as the commander of the special operations corps being shuffled.

The information coming out of Afghanistan is mostly one-sided, with Taliban capturing more cities and districts, as well as boasting of their various successes.

On August 11, the Taliban seized a Mi-35 attack helicopter that was left behind by the Afghan government forces at Kunduz Airport in northeastern Afghanistan.

Footage from different parts of Kunduz confirms that the Taliban seized at least dozens of military vehicles, mainly US-made Humvees.

Furthermore, the Taliban downed an Iranian surveillance drone over the southwestern province of Farah. The group released photos showing the wreckage of the drone, that was identified as an Iranian-made Qods Mohajer-2N.

The Taliban’s recent advance in the southwestern and northwestern parts of Afghanistan created an influx of refugees to Iran. Despite maintaining some low-level relations with the Taliban, Tehran appears to be preparing for the worst-case scenario.

As such, Tehran likely also expects the Taliban to be victorious in the fight for Afghanistan, and needs to keep a close eye, similarly to what Russia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan are doing, to protect their borders and guarantee their security.

Saigon 2.0!

TOM

I disagree… It is far more embarrassing for US.

Arch Bungle

To think, many of these men were children, or newborns when NATO first rolled in to destroy their country.

If they are monsters, they were made so by Western evil.

S Balu

I remember when Mehdi Bazagan CIA agent was mentioned to take over leadership in Iran in 1979
Khomeini outright rejected the idea
Why have cancer cells in your body ie CIA agents in the government
Same Taliban must follow

Arch Bungle

By the same token, the Taliban should accept no power sharing deals with the puppet US government.

The entire Afghan ‘government’ should be exiled or tried for treason – they are essentially collaborators with an occupying power.

Rank and file soldiers of the puppet Afghan army should be granted Amnesty, unless guilty of war crimes.

This is a Western principle, so we should all be ok with it …

Remember whiteman talk with forked tongue
And USA/Britain/NATO have invaded Afghanistan based on lie and was/is a subtle Racial war
Saddest thing I have observed and read is Devious USA/British/
NATO lie about Taliban being taken as the truth and Taliban being
Portrayed as being INTRANSIGENT AND NOT WILLING TO COMPROMISE
EXACT MANTRA THAT WAS DISHED OUT BY USA AGAINST IRANIAN REVOLUTIONARIES LED BY KHOMEINI in 1979
When CIA tried their level best to impose their Puppet Mehdi Bazergan As compromised Candidate giving illusion of having popular support with their mass media blitz
Khomeini flatly refused and Exact positron is by Taliban that GHANI and his gang are CIA/Indian Puppets must go peacefully
Talks in Doha are waste of Time
If war Criminal Tony Blair can lie in The British Parliament about SADDAM’S WMD what credibility do you give to ZalmI say none

Has nothing to do with racism.
It has everything to do with the rare earth minerals.

Ahson

come on man. Plenty of Lithium everywhere……Why go get shot in shit-hole Afghanistan for it? Same goes for that other stupid opium excuse? Who wants expensive opium when you can get dirt cheap and super potent Chinese Fentanyl and Meth now?

Afghanistan may be sitting on one of the richest troves of minerals in the world, valued at nearly $1 trillion. Afghanistan holds 60 million tons of copper, 2.2 billion tons of iron ore, 1.4 million tons of rare earth elements such as lanthanum, cerium and neodymium, and lodes of aluminum, gold, silver, zinc, mercury and lithium. For instance, the Khanneshin carbonatite deposit in Afghanistan’s Helmand province is valued at $89 billion, full as it is with rare earth elements. . Afghanistan is thought to be able to “supply about 690 tons of morphine” an amount that would triple the global supply of morphine. It has the most hectares of poppy fields anywhere in the world at 300,000 hectares of land in the country that was being used to grow the crop. That plus I’m guessing you don’t know anything the medical industry does to produce said pharmaceutical drugs from China do you? Afghanistan ships/exports vasts amounts of opium which is why in America you’ll find opioids on the cheap.

This is a ruse ie deception about minerals technology has evolved and DEEP SEA MINING IS FAR ADVANCED AND YIELD more minerals and economically very viable
The main reason of USA/NATO invaded Afghanistan is of it’s GEO-STRATEGIC LOCATION as it is under belly of China,Russia,Iran,
Middle East ,India etc and USA could easily control it’s rival and competitors at the same it can destroy Muslims

Ahson

brah……you wouldn’t even find a single wahabbi willing to risk his life stepping foot in that hell-hole……forget Afghanistan, you wouldn’t anyone willing to invest in Pakistan either…….there’s a reason for it.

Arch Bungle

It is totally unviable to mine these resources cost effectively in Afghanistan.

For a myriad of reasons.

Ahson dhotiwalla you promised me that we will go into trucking business as you will invest in new LORRY trucks from money you
Made by SELLING YOUR FELLOW DALITS INTO SLAVERY to build Hindu Temple in ROBBINSVILLE new jersey USA
But I also heard that You are extremely lucky that Apart from GHANI and Abdullah Abdullah you will be joined by Ahmed Massoud, Marshal Fahim, Rashid Dostum, Amrullah Saleh, Hamdullah Mohib, Hanif Atmar, and Ismail Khan etc. They all agreed to start wearing saffron coloured dhotis and go with you to Varanasi at Ganges River
Be blessed by Modi
Ahson how did manage to be so influential and so popular
Can you share your secret please and please make up your mind

Ahson

me and yous was goin go into business……but you backed out after I found out about you being a wahabbi. Your secret got exposed!

S Balu

Ahson
Soon you will have to pass through TALIBAN CHECKPOINTS
and as you are wearing your smelly brown stained dhoti which opens from the back and Taliban wear pajamas that open from front you know what it means you will FUN

Arch Bungle

Correct. It’s a thousand times cheaper to buy it from China.

If the plan was to invade and occupy Afghanistan for rare earths, it was a plan dreamt up by a complete cretin(s).

Arch Bungle

Wake up, sleepy head.

Rare earth minerals has nothing to do with it.

The USA exported not a single gram of r.e.m in 20 years of occupation.

Tommy Jensen

Ohh no. Not that Saigon scene again.
