Taliban taking over Kabul faster than ever expected

The world was shocked by horrifying scenes of desperate Afghans swarming at Kabul’s international airport, grasping at their last chance to escape a country now completely overrun by the Taliban.

How did all this happen so fast? After nearly two decades of war, US has spent over $2 trillion and lost more than 6000 American lives. Now they has decided to withdraw the military forced from Afghanistan. And it has been just a few weeks till now that the capital Kabul is also taken over by the Taliban.

Was the past 20 years completely pointless and in vain? – an American Afghanistan veteren said.
