This what happened ,when you have corruption that is widespread, Ukraine will not be any better

What a difference between Afghans and Ukranians. Firstly the Afghan president ran so fast out of the country he left behind his shadow. And the army, after hearing some Taliban cough threw down their weapons and scampered away like rabbits. They ran so fast they created a windstorm. Cities of hundreds of thousands handed over the keys to groups of a dozen invaders. There is no helping them.

Males who cannot view a woman as their equal and instead chose to attack them are the worst cowards.

Incredibly brave women, standing up to those barbarians. Afghanistan is a country where the men just don’t deserve the opposite sex.

Incredibly brave of these women to protest against the taliban savages, knowing fully well they cannot stand the sight of free women!!!

I don’t have much hope for Afghanistan though as long as these savages are in control!!!

putin’s brutes brought in the Chechens, taliban’s ideological brothers to fight in Ukraine.

But I’m happy to inform you that they were beaten back and ran off tail between their legs. So not much chance of Ukraine becoming another Afghanistan despite lil putin’s best efforts!!

Chechen fighters have fought for both the Russians and Ukrainians. Quite a few hard core anti-Russian Chechens who had been fighting Russian forces in Syria came to Ukraine to fight them there.

What could become interesting are noises coming from Chechen rebels claiming they are going to renew their war for independence from Russia. Apparently their thinking that Russian forces are already over extended and this would be a good time to take up arms again.

Taliban has been taking revenge on people who worked in the prior administration. They've closed entire govt departments.

They want women to be at home, always, never allowed out because Afghani men cannot control themselves.

Taliban has been kidnapping women and girls, forcing them to marry former fighters. They force the female family, especially the fathers, to agree to these marriages, or they will be "disappeared".

Women are being arrested by the Taliban for being "morality laws" if they are un-escorted by a male family member out of the house. There is no trial, which violated Taliban law. They are held for months in prison without being formally charged. No investigation happens. Nothing is logged into the country's legal system.

Female lawyers aren't allowed to work.

Female radio news people aren't allowed to work.

All under the Taliban guise of "morality laws".

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBVtCcAq3nQ is a video of Afghani women held in prison for "immoral behavior". Sure must be nice to have men who want the world to be like it was 2000 yrs ago in charge. /s

Women and Men are not equal but women deserve equal rights

Let me fix this for you. Men and women are equal as human beings, and deserve equal rights. Men and women do function differently and have obvious physical differences as biological gender dictates.

The Taliban in their infinite ignorance and stupidity keep missing the fact that men and women make two halves of a whole. Men can't bear children alone, and women are not worth half a man as Islam proclaims, but are the other half of two people who can raise a family in hetero relationships.

I really wish all the women fled Afghanistan when they had the chance. That would have left the Taliban pretty high and dry.
