Taliban seize power in Afghanistan as President flees country – BBC News


The Taliban have taken control of Afghanistan, occupying the capital Kabul after President Ashraf Ghani fled the country.

Taliban forces occupied the Presidential Palace, from where they are preparing to announce that they are the new rulers of an “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan”.

It’s the culmination of a lightning takeover by the Islamist fighters, following the decision by the United States and other coalition nations to withdraw all troops from Afghanistan.

Coalition troops first entered the country in 2001 following the 9/11 attacks and removed the Taliban from power. 20 years of fighting to support the new Afghan government cost thousands of lives.

The decision of the US President Joe Biden to withdraw all US forces by September paved the way for the final Taliban offensive that overwhelmed the Afghan government’s forces.

Foreign nationals and many Afghans have been trying to get on flights out of Kabul airport, where US and British troops have been deployed to aid the evacuation.

  1. Quran 24:55

    Allah has promised those who have believed (correct imaan) among you and done righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely establish for them [therein] their religion which He has preferred for them and that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security, [for] they worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after that – then those are the defiantly disobedient.
    (Interpetation of the meaning)

  2. The poor Afghan people live in a miserable corner of the world. After 20 years of aggressive war and destruction, the participating countries must be responsible and compensate the Afghan people with trillions of dollars.

  3. Where are People now when Indian Hindus are kling innocents of Kashmir and Nagaland??

    Where were People when Americans were Kling innocents in Afghanistan?

    Now why are you blaming Afghan Taliban? They take their land back from Americans… do your research first.. and start helping Humanity not those who you like it…

  4. If you ever feel useless, remember the US spent 2T$, 20 years, and thousands of lives to replace Taliban with Ultra Pro Max Taliban.

  5. Abraham Lincoln said that Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test the character of a man, give him power. Now, the Taliban are in power and let us see the character of the new and improved Taliban.

  6. US military industrial complex finally exposed. Real reason for staying 20 years was for US military industrial complex to make money. If you disagree then why would US military industrial complex give security to so called enemies Russia and China for 20 years? Yes US military industrial complex gave security to Russia and China for 20 years and so US military industrial complex was already aware they were improving security for Russia and China and ok with it because they were making money from war.

  7. She was the first to run away then how does she know who is doing the killing, these women are sellouts and they know it that is the reason there running scared for there lives!

  10. What if your understanding is misrepresented by the History of the Angels in which their duties on earth where to resupply the earth with it environment and replenishing the earth and watching humanity. While keeping watch over the image of GOD! What if the Authority they possessed belonged to God and they confiscated it to apply there own Authority and knowledge and History to mankind! Their Authority was to never communicate with the Humans!! God within the creative aspect allowed the metaphysical realm for the Angels due to show them the pain and. Suffering that they gave themselves to direct and lead mankind to there! Metaphysical Heavenly realm! The Angels call themselves God in the Bible but they also call themselves ghost, goblins, evil, demons, apparitions, spirits, Gods (Hindu) and Bad Angels, Saints, pope 35 years I’m still alive cause The Ivy League Colleges are given this Angels verbiage but did not give the true relation to why they wanted them to have it? Bet you want to know Now! They wanted you to see corruption in the flesh of mankind but forgot to tell u the price of this verbiage is to keep you from the true word of God! God gave you an Authority to live they call themselves soul, spirits, ghosts and deceived humanity by introducing themselves with the humans Host to suppress your emotions and self to give them a humans body like “invasion of the Body snatchers” that the government and many Elite have been removing wealth ggold and silver and all minerals to build underground buildings underwater inspecting the Zombies apocalypse but it’s not at all happening God in the Heavenly realm want all of mankind to give back to those you have punished and start restitution for those homeless and manipulating many by this Angels verbiage of the elite class of the Ivy League colleges not to forget a cults ritual people and the 501c3!!!! Stop lying everyone!!!!

  11. "The people who voted for Biden must be spinning in their graves!" Goodbye women's rights, good bye religious freedom. Goodbye freedom. Great job Joe!

  12. What the hell have they been doing for 20 YEARS if taliban have took over in 1 night..like seriously 20 years and all them people died for nothing… taliban look stronger now more than before the war.

  13. After seeing this kind of stuff happening in some nations, you should all appreciate your country and be grateful that you were born there.

  14. Hollywood liberals and stand up comedian will not talk about children and women condition in afganistan…
    They made chaos when one druggists George Floyd was dead …but they keep their mouth shut when 13 soldiers got killed..😂😂😂

  15. Whether we left now or stayed 20 more years we’d have the same outcome. Like how long do you want are soldiers occupying a foreign country and risking their lives for a people who won’t fight and stand up for themselves? This is the right decision and any other country that has a problem with a U.S. withdrawal should send the troops into the treacherous afghan terrain to fight IsIs and the Taliban. We shouldn’t be the overseers of the world or bear the burden of another country when we have our on problems here at home. How many more billions do you want us to pump into another country sir? Not to mention our young men and women dying for what? We can’t force democracy or a way of life on a group of people who have their own ideologies and beliefs.
