The Taliban is advancing rapidly to the capital city of Kabul, Afghanistan after securing all geographical entry into the conflicted region according to reports.
The group has been merciless in it’s route to absolute conquest of Afghanistan, and have captured a lot of strongholds as they continue their March towards the seat of the democratic government that’s been in place for 20yrs in the country.
US President, Joe Biden has stated that 5,000 military men has been deployed to help secure the successful transportation of about 30,000 embassy workers and Afghan civilians who has been helping the USA military during their occupation of the Asian country.
According to Biden –
“When I came to office, I inherited a deal cut by my predecessor… that left the Taliban in the strongest position militarily since 2001 and imposed a May 1, 2021, deadline on US forces.
“I faced a choice — follow through on the deal, with a brief extension to get our forces and our allies’ forces out safely, or ramp up our presence and send more American troops to fight once again in another country’s civil conflict.
“I was the fourth president to preside over an American troop presence in Afghanistan — two Republicans, two Democrats. I would not, and will not, pass this war onto a fifth.”
The US President also gave serious warning to the Taliban, stating that any action “that puts US personnel or our mission at risk there, will be met with a swift and strong US military response” he added.
