MOSCOW (AP) — The Taliban claimed on Friday that they now control 85% of Afghanistan’s territory amid a surge in wins on the ground and as American troops complete their pullout from the war-battered country.

The announcement came at a press conference at the end of a visit by a senior Taliban delegation to Moscow this week — a trip meant to offer assurances that the insurgents’ quick gains in Afghanistan do not threaten Russia or its allies in Central Asia.


The first Biden did was shut down American oil and gas exploration to give all that national wealth to Russia. Next, he lifted sanctions to give Russia all of the EU's gas and oil business - trillions for his pal Putin and Russia.

He also ordered shutting down gas pipeline and pushing ending using fossil fuels - as all energy costs to Americans - and pushing electric cars - to benefit China by giving China a massive low energy costs for their industries and people - as China is building dozens of new coal burn plants.

He is open that he will allow Iran to get nuclear warheads to put on their missiles.

Did anyone doubt he would give Afghanistan to the Taliban?

It seems obvious he will comply with his instructions from Kim Jung Un

Biden is the most traitorous president possible, essentially a foreign agent of Russia and China. It's just a lie to fly the American flag over the White House. It should be the Chinese flag above the Russian flag, and the White House should be painted red. Stop the lies. He is converting the USA to being nothing but one of China's provinces, while completely rebuilding Russia's economy - and therefore military - ultimately trillions from the American economy to the Russian economy. He gave Russia control of world oil and therefore energy, and is giving China the last of American industry.

Basically the future of the USA is that economy is Big Tech, Amazon, WalMart and other big box international companies - all of which are the advertising agencies and retailers for Chinese products made in Chinese factories in joint Chinese plutocrats - American plutocrats global monopoly. The guardians of freedom, the middle merchant class, was destroyed by the covid-19 bioterrorism campaign on TV, in newspapers and and online - that the plutocrats 90+% control. The propaganda was that all small low traffic businesses must be ordered illegal and permanently eliminated (over half a million so far) - claiming you are not safe unless packed into a WalMart, other big box store, or from Amazon Prime with 20,000 covid-19 postive employees mailing covid 19 all over the country. In fact, they would get covid-19 to you often within a day to assure maximum remaining covid-19 on the packaging and product.

You may want to convert any money and accounts you have to necessities of life. Inflation is going to erase money and savings. Also liquidate stock, that will not be able to keep up with increasing inflation rates. It isn't long before the world and petro monetary system will not longer be the American dollar. When that happened the value of the dollar falls thru the floor - permanently - and there is no domestic production to even try to fall back on. The USA already is a beggar to China for goods and products paid for on IOUs and by American land and businesses.

BIden fully surrendered to Russia and China, the easiest colonization of another country probably in known history.

Why are you blaming Biden and babbling about Russia and China and Covid?

And did you not know that your crush Trump was the one who promised to end the Afghanistan war? He committed to a May 1, 2021 end of war. Did you forget that he agreed to this with the Taliban? I guess you're saying Trump ****ed up.

imo, Afghanistan was going to fall back to its old ways no matter when the US withdraws.

How many remember Trump wanting US out by May 1 2021?

If we had stayed one year, ten years, or one hundred years; the end result would be the same. Multiple "empires" have passed through Afghanistan only to leave it the same as when they first arrived.

Lets look back at Joko's evolving opinion of removing troops from Afghanistan, shall we?

We know how upset the Democratic Party, Biden and Harris are for us not being in war in Syria, reducing troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, and for plans to reduce troops in Germany.

It probably will be a challenge, but it isn't impossible you can lead the movement to go to war again in Vietnam since that's what Trump was talking about that by your message apparently so infuriates you.

6 new reasons the Democratic Party hates President Trump so intensely:

1. Two Muslim nations recognizing Israel.
2. Refusing to get us into war in Syria
3. Reducing troops in Afghanistan and Iraq
4. Publicly stating he will NOT go along with the military industrial complex to get in more wars - calling them out publicly
5. Not getting us into any new war - unlike any president has done for decades
6. Vowing to reduce troop count in Germany

Little could be more outrageous to the Democratic Party concerning foreign policy. Over 90% of all American war deaths have been under Democratic leadership - so they do NOT like this!

Outraged we didn't get into another Democratic lead war in N. Korea - and that's why you're voting for Biden isn't it? War in Syria. More war forever in Afghanistan and Iraq, war with North Korea. War with Russia. War with China. There's probably is some remote group of people south of our border of Inca ancestry to attack for the crimes of their ancestors too.

It is like he does not even bother to hide how he was for whatever Trump did, and against whatever Biden does, even when it is the exact same thing.

I know your intention is to talk about how bad Biden is for the US, and I agree with you, but since your thread title is about the Taliban and Afghanistan that's what I'm going to talk about.

It doesn't matter who the President is when the US completely pulls out of that country. The Taliban will take it back. The same thing would have happened if Trump was in the Oval Office right now. But the reality that both Trump and, thankfully, Biden recognize is that the US MUST get out of that country. In fact, Obama should have realized that reality and acted upon it more than 10 years ago.

It sucks for all the Afghan people we tried to help, but we cannot prop them up forever. The ones who oppose the Taliban need to deal with it themselves.

But one thing I expect the US to do...no matter who the President is...is to keep tabs on Afghanistan and make sure that the aid and support the Taliban gave to Al Qaeda never gets given to them or any other terrorist organization. If it looks like that's happening...I think it's glass parking lot time.

The allies should have forced republican electoral systems on the country. Drilled the population in having elections all the time for all positions.

The mistake was to be culturally sensitive. That never did any good, and just made things too complicated.

If people didn't want Biden to end Trump's Forever Wars they would've voted for Trump. As it is, Landslide Biden is finally bringing our boys home.

Many who support endless war do not support declaring the war first or charging everyone war taxes. I support charging all tax brackets a war tax, as well as considerable taxes for corporations. We'll probably see fewer and shorter wars with that system.

And then we were shocked by all of Olgino... that is, we have worked so much on the topic of Trump... and it turns out Biden... you will first decide who our agent is there, otherwise it is impossible to work.

But seriously. For 20 years, America has been spending a lot of money to win a war that has no end... and which makes no sense. No reputation, because the control is imaginary, and Afghanistan has become an even more bandit country. No income from this country.
Why the United States needs this is not clear. Take your soldiers from Afghanistan, Poland, the Baltic States, we will take care of everyone.

In a country where, even under the Americans, Sharia law was in force... um... are you serious?
A democracy only for men from destroyed clans? This is something new.
Afghanistan is a deeply religious country, what kind of democracy are we talking about?

The US would have needed at least 100 000 more soldiers over the max they had in the country to even try that. At a cost of $200 000 per soldier per year

If after 20 years of trying to build up an Afghan force that could hold back the Taliban we couldnt do it, then you can only conclude that the Afghans arent all that unhappy with Taliban rule.

Breaking news - Afghans run Afghanistan
Yes, they will soon return to their entertainment from the 90s, the slave trade, the whole country is in a poppy... mass executions.
And that, a sovereign country, they have the right...

This is ironic.

This is a logic at the level of the Holocaust... which lasted longer than the Second World War... it started earlier... and if you think like you, Jews, Gypsies, Balts and Slavs, were not strong against the Holocaust... however, still no.
