"Russia said it would not be closing its embassy because the Taliban had provided security assurances.

China expressed its readiness to develop "friendly relations" with the group.

Iran's new hardline president, Ebrahim Raisi, said the US pull-out should offer an opportunity for lasting peace in Afghanistan
." (BBC)

Interesting that all these countries that had vicious fights with the Taliban in the past are taking their time. Why does the US with all its military might on the ground is the one that appears to be running?

Fake. Those helicopters weren't used in Saigon in 1975.

Better?

Better, isn't a term I would use with any of these situations. But this is a more accurate photographic portrayal of the comparison (I posted a video).

The sad part is that it has been going on for more than 1,000 years, with people fighting to impose their beliefs, religions, and ideologies with swords. It might be a temporary (and sometimes long) win, but is one religion or ideology indeed that strong and valid if it needs to be imposed by the power of the sword?

This. I wish I understood every Arabic groups religious views to know who is a threat and who isn't. The problem is I doubt anyone gives accurate information (Just like by Judaism) and I'm not interested in starting to look into their religion.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Follow Abu Saleh on Telegram. He filters out a lot of noise and seems to be on target with both news and analysis.

Biden's speechwriters deserve a raise. To take such a mess and make it sound so beautiful - it takes special talent.

Puff puff pass. Someone forgot the pass part.
@Joe Biden.
Awful speech. I want what he's smoking.

-1.
Bunch of malarkey. Focused on what's not being debated and punted on what's going wrong.
Even CNN is trashing it.
