In bugging out of Afghanistan, the United States leaves behind millions of women and children at the mercy of one of the most brutal and violent regimes on the planet. The highly militant and not at all sympathetic Muslim group The Taliban.
That promise did not last a full day.
Taliban fighters shot and killed a woman for not wearing a burqa in Afghanistan on Tuesday — the same day the group pledged to usher in a new inclusive era in the country that honors “women’s rights.”
A photo emerged of a woman in Takhar province lying in a pool of blood, with loved ones crouched around her, after she was killed by insurgents for being in public without a head covering, according to Fox News.
The killing came amid the group’s version of a charm offensive, after its swift takeover of the country in the absence of US troops, who had been propping up allied military groups since shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
In the west, being without a head covering seems to be a fairly minor offense for such a brutal punishment, but these insurrectionists do not seem to have much in the way of sense when it comes to such crimes in their sphere.
Insurgents also vowed Tuesday not to interfere with US-led evacuation efforts of Westerners and their Afghan allies, but were instead reported to be controlling the entrances of Hamid Karzai International Airport, and attacking those who were trying to flee.
“There was kids, women, babies, old women, they could barely walk,” an Afghan former State Department contractor told Fox. “They [are in a] very, very bad situation, I’m telling you. At the end, I was thinking that there was like 10,000 or more than 10,000 people, and they’re running into the airport … The Taliban [were] beating people and the people were jumping from the fence, the concertina wire, and also the wall.”
And this is what we leave behind when the squatter in the White House decided to just pull out of Afghanistan rather than gracefully withdraw.
