They removed every bit of support, including civilian maintenance support, overnight. The Afghans had millions (billions?) of dollars worth of equipment that was completely useless.
But somehow the equipment you claim was useless to the Afghan army is now formidable in the hands of Taliban.

Does the Taliban have civilian maintenance support?

So you don't want to help people who have cancer in NY but you want to help some guy who was urged for months to get out of an obvious war zone and didn't listen?

Lol, imagine the whining if they would've risked lives to evacuate dogs.

It's not whining about dogs, it's the planned unplanned exit
BTW cancer is not planned, according to the Biden administration everything went as expected

On a population level the existence of cancer and other medical conditions is just as foreseeable as idiots staying behind in a burning house.

Do you want to tax the collective to help individuals or not?

The claim is they have billions in American equipment.

Where did I claim that?
ETA: referring to the latter part. The Taliban will have no use for the equipment right now, but with time and training it can become useful

Today is כג אלול.

Twenty years to the day from the event that prompted US forces entering Afghanistan and overthrowing the Taliban, as they were harboring terrorism.

What now? Are we any safer?

@hvaces42 your thoughts on this day?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

The Taliban celebrated the US withdrawal from Afghanistan with fireworks and gunfire early Tuesday — as the insurgents also stormed Kabul airport and examined the helicopters, weapons and military uniforms abandoned by the US in their frantic final exit.

Just minutes after the final US troops vacated Kabul’s airport, the Taliban stormed in and triumphantly stood on the tarmac as the militants pledged to secure the country.

This is totally disingenuous. The true amount is a MAX of 25% of the claim, not 33% HIGHER than the claim.

That is what I said in Feb of 2020.
Well handing over seemed inevitable.   What did seem possible was not to give them these shiny choppers to transport people to their final destinations....

Not that it matters to the larger discussion, but that's not a hanging/execution, the person is harnessed in and definitely alive.
