Recall the UN’s warning that Afghanistan women’s rights are a “red line.” That “red line” has been crossed repeatedly by the Taliban without any consequences from the UN. Meanwhile, the UN Security Council just “unanimously adopted a US-proposed resolution that facilitates humanitarian aid to Afghanistan,” which is said to be “on the verge of economic collapse.”
Didn’t we already build the Afghan economy? And finance the Taliban? But enough is never enough.
Biden brought tens of thousands of unvetted Afghans to America, the vast majority of whom had no visas and were not eligible for anything.
Afghanistan has far-reaching effects. All nations that previously depended upon American military might and financial support have learned that the U.S. no longer stands as a bastion of freedom and support.
