    BWAAHAAAAAAAAA mutually exclusive terms in one sentence. A Taliban spokesman and negotiator told The Associated Press that the terrorist group aims to form an "open, inclusive Islamic government,"

    Canadian PM Justin Trudeau said Canada will not acknowledge the Taliban as the government of Afghanistan and revealed he spoke with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a press conference on Tuesday.

    "I also spoke last night with former U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who shares our concern for Afghan women and girls," Trudeau revealed. "She welcomed our efforts and urged Canada to continue our work. Governments, international organizations, and civil society must continue to work together to support women and girls in Afghanistan

    ''Some of you Afghan Veterans out there are hurting, trying to make sense of what this all means. Including some of my peers, who are not immune to the feel bads coming out of this clusterfuck. So allow me to give you a different perspective, one that will perhaps soothe the pain a bit. I shoot straight, and this isn’t all sunshine and roses. There is going to be some Grim Dark upfront. But it does have a silver lining, hear me out."

    good take on what happened from the folks doing the dirty work on the ground...i'm getting this feeling of deja vu

    I never served over there and have no first hand experience to base this on, by my pure speculation is that a rag tag rebel force who spent 20 years hiding in caves has no idea how to actually run a country. When they arrest, or kill anyone who did what is going to happen to Afghanistan? I have a feeling they are looking at very dark times by winter or spring. No power, no food, no services what so ever. My guess is we will see mass starvation.

    Nah. When food gets scarce, they'll just do what every dictatorship/tyranny/despot has done....just eliminate all the excess people....problem solved.

    China will be coming to their aid...bringing in all the food they want. China wants the concessions to mining all the rare earth metals extant in that shithole...they will offer the Taliban pretty much whatever they want for those rights.

    And of course the Fagliban, being as traitorous, duplicitous and vile as all Islam is (as well as progressives, liberals, socialists and communists...but I'm being redundant here) will ignore their brothers and sisters being tortured and slaughtered in Xinjiang and give China whatever they want.
