    God loves you so much that He sent His Holy Son Jesus from heaven to earth, to be born of a virgin, to grow up and die on a cross for our sins, and to be put into a tomb 3 days and rise from the dead the third day, and He (Jesus) went back up to heaven. We must receive Sinless Jesus sincerely to be God's child(John 1:12).After we get saved by grace through faith in Christ, if we truly love the Lord Jesus Christ, then we will obey Jesus(John 14:15). Mark 1:15 "And saying, the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: Repent ye, and believe the gospel." Jesus said in John 14:15 "If you love Me, keep My commandments. "There's a real hell. It says in Revelation 21:8 "But for the cowardly, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone…" Please sincerely receive Holy Jesus and put your true faith and trust in Him today and please repent.

    A country that spent 20 years training soldiers and was backed by big cool nations on the world vs fighters wearing traditional clothes afghan armed with aks, who would win?

  5. Prince Solomon says:

    This is another proof of why you can't just force democracy on a people (didn't work in Germany after WW1 either), you must change the minds of the people through a massive collective trauma (WW2 Germany bombed to pieces) or wait many decades and hope education and willpower will do it for the people so the revolution will come from the inside.

    But there are no Afghans, they're heavily divided people, there aren't even THE Taliban, they're divided into many factions too. So much division, of course there can't be any unity and these wars are doomed from the beginning. They're living in the middle ages and nothing is going to change anytime soon because the UN isn't helping enough.

    Bden ignored his general's, scrapped Trmp's policy and made none of his own. Blood on Bden's hands, he also made hundreds of US abandoned there and CNN, BBC etc swept it under the rug, sickening.

    Quran 24:55

    Allah has promised those who have believed (correct imaan) among you and done righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely establish for them [therein] their religion which He has preferred for them and that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security, [for] they worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after that – then those are the defiantly disobedient.
    (Interpetation of the meaning)

    "Taliban ban women from studying with men." -BBC (today's news)
    "UK ban women from studying with men in bikini." – Taliban replied.

    Not everyone wants to be civilised. Savagery is a choice we must respect. Only Sadam Hussein could control Iraq. Brutalism and state terror take decades to develop a "self choice" of freedom. Let "Islam paradise" show it's people how to live. Send Islamic home to their paradise and stop telling civilised peoples of the world that their ideas belong in their societies.

    Because Biden is a failure

  29. winsome850 says:

    The poor Afghan people live in a miserable corner of the world. After 20 years of aggressive war and destruction, the participating countries must be responsible and compensate the Afghan people with trillions of dollars.

    What a war….made on paper

  31. Dr Zakir Naik YT says:

    Biggest mistake Taliban made was by not making Afghanistan the biggest cemetery for the US citizens outside USA..

  32. Shahnaz Gull says:

    Talibans win why. When few people with no special power but spirits and faith is touching height of sky, they can defeat anyone. Whole history is filled with these stories. It is one of the greatest event of this century.

  33. kelly mcclure says:

    All please understand that most in usa are upset and ashamed by our governments plan to leave. People voted Biden for president. He is seen as weak by the Taliban and Biden proved this and continues too.
    I stopped voting after I voted for Obama thinking he would help but didn't. Saw our government for what they are. So I choose to not vote. I agree we needed to leave but the way it was done was completely insane on so many levels. But now Afghanistan is in control, mainly by the Taliban, there are alot of groups like Taliban in Afghanistan.

  34. kelly mcclure says:

    I love how when trump was president things were on a level, then Biden lmao

  35. kelly mcclure says:

    USA military lies

  36. Corey McLaughlin says:

    Taliban overtakes governments and in response "…the U.N. was speaking out…" = And that's one reason the Taliban wins. They use actions. The U.N. uses words.

  37. YoungTurkCA says:

    Afghanistan was a success story in 1950s; building dams, irrigation of deserts, building infrastructure, agriculture, education, and some sort of booming middle class. In 1980s, foreign support of fundamentalist against Russia was a grave mistake and it was the beginning of the end. It's so sad to see a country once was almost a model for development is imploding and radicals once supported by US is the culprit of all problems from Afghanistan to Middle East.
