...a story of dismay, hard to imagine that it is true.

We asked Hameedullah Motawakil, spokesman of the Taliban's provincial government in Herat, what they were doing to tackle hunger.

"The situation is a result of international sanctions on Afghanistan and the freezing of Afghan assets. Our government is trying to identify how many are in need. Many are lying about their conditions because they think they can get help," he said. It's a stance he persisted with despite being told that we have seen overwhelming evidence of how bad the situation is.

He also said the Taliban were trying to create jobs. "We are looking to open iron ore mines and a gas pipeline project."

It's unlikely that will happen soon.

People told us they felt abandoned, by the Taliban government and the international community.

Hunger is a slow and silent killer, its effects not always immediately visible.

Away from the attention of the world, the scale of the crisis in Afghanistan might never truly come to light, because no one is counting.

...and this story, very disturbing,

Within the Hazara community, there seems to be a growing sense of fear. During an interview in late 2022 in the same area of the Afghan capital where the dozens of girls and young women were killed in September, a Shia Hazara former government official told Al-Monitor that anxiety levels were high among his community.

“In this area, everyone is afraid — always.”

There was a time when Afghanistan was a democracy. Those who helped Taliban financially, militarily and to organise are responsible for what is going on there. The same cunt's are also responsible for what is going on in Iran and the middle east.

For what?

Afghanistan’s Corruption Was Made in America

https://www.foreignaffairs.com/united-s ... =fa_summer

“The disaster in Afghanistan—and the United States’ complicity in allowing corruption to cripple the Afghan state and make it loathsome to its own people—is not only a failure of U.S. foreign policymaking,” she wrote in September 2021. “It is also a mirror, reflecting back a more florid version of the type of corruption that has long been undermining American democracy, as well.”

"The Taliban’s Opium Ban Has Become an Existential Problem for the West"

...a very interesting article which takes us back to 2001 (and two decades before) to explain the ugly mess the world is in today.
