US vows to continue airstrikes in Afghanistan, as general insists ‘Taliban victory is not inevitable’

The head of the US Central Command has promised that despite the withdrawal, the US military will continue supporting the Afghan government with airstrikes against the advancing Taliban militants, at least “in the coming weeks.”

“The Taliban are attempting to create a sense of inevitability about their campaign. They are wrong,” General Kenneth McKenzie, the head of the US Central Command, told reporters in Kabul over the weekend.

Since the US began its withdrawal in May, the advance by the Taliban has intensified, with militants now claiming to have gained control of more than 80% of Afghanistan. In response, the US military has supported the government’s efforts against the Taliban through air strikes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the USSR lost in Afghanistan, the world stopped being afraid of them and stopped doing business their way. The same is going to happen to the US now.
