Don't help a country that is not helping themselves

Afghanistan is not helping themselves by shutting out half their population

Russian collusion absolutely occurred. Just because the low level criminals didn't flip sufficiently on the boss doesn't mean there isn't a ton of circumstantial evidence that Trump is in the pocket of Putin. Just look at the Helsinki conference.

Nope.

Like “Russian collusion” and so many other propaganda lies that turned out to be false.

With several billion $$$ worth of military weaponry and equipment gifted to them by Biden, the Taliban wont be susceptible to any “pressure” from “the international community” for several decades at least. Well done Joe!

Russia offered a bounty program on killing US soldiers at the time.

Patently false. Even CNN and the other “news” organizations of its ilk backtracked on that bs.

Biden did this

Objectively not true. Surrender Donald had no plan for a functional government in Afghanistan and the Taliban were a force in Afghanistan long before the 2001.

During the Soviet occupation the Russians gave females complete access to education and jobs and expanded their rights considerably. The USA used this to stir up the mujahadeen resistance which it lavishly supported with money and weapons. Funny old world, isnt it?

During the Soviet Afghan war, many Afghan women supported the communist side against the conservative Islamic insurgents, wishing for modernisation and improvements.

The Taliban remember this and sadly keep women powerless.

Sad to see what the women in Afghanistan have to deal with on a daily basis due to misinterpretation of holy texts by old men trying to hold power.

Are the men afraid that woman can do their job better? The men don't want to appear as fools.

The UN needs to pull out and cut off all UN aid unless women are in control. Make that a mandate for the Taliban, Will they follow it or decide to do without?

Afghanistan fail themselves,all the people that benefited under US occupation,fled to the US
