Thanks, didn't have a specific site to link but that is a good choice.

This was noteworthy in there too. Good to remember there are good people out there and that good can come from adversity.

Reports of a second explosion now.

There was intelligence that ISIS-K were planning something.

People so desperate to leave the country they are willing to cling to an aircraft and fall to their death. Those who oppose them leaving killing them by blowing themselves up. Whatever possesses the mind of those so determined to oppress these people?

Unfortunately this is happening all the time in multiple countries around the world. The only difference is where the media focus attention and, in this instance, the recent involvement of the UK government.

Exactly

Silly old sod screwed it. He wouldn't go into September as it clashed with 9/11 anniversary.

He has withdrawn without securing civilians withdrawal. He is like a captain leaving a sinking ship without the passengers. He has had loads of time to sort this out.

Impossible for UK to stay in without USA back up even if they wanted to.

It is a total disgrace.

Notice Kamala has distanced herself from it all.

Biden was never going to last 1 year let alone 4 and Kamala has been the shoe in from the start.

There is a massive, unsustainable shortage of workers in the care sector. This is very sensible, but it is pure opportunism.

I remain fairly certain that at 00:01 on Sept 1st, the Taliban will put 8 or 9 Mortar rounds onto the runways.

We're literally going to leave the poor sods to die. I suspect some by torture and we'll make enemies of all of them.

This explosion certainly seems to have made the aim of getting everyone out who wants to leave (and has a passport) by 31st August a lot more difficult.

While I agree with you I honestly don’t think Biden had any chance of getting extra time.

Rather than being seen to fail he decided not to openly try. He knows he has failed hence his refusal to answer questions. He has damaged US standing in the World, probably more than Trump did. He could be laughed off as a fool, but Biden doesn’t fit that description.

The Taliban have insisted that there is to be no extending of the Sept 1st deadline. As poor as Biden is, i cant see that he can do much else. The only other option would start the whole twenty year fiasco all over again.

Absolutely. This was always going to happen once the 5,000 Taliban prisoners were released by Trump in return for 'being good'.

Whatever the timeline, the stronger the Taliban were going to become once their leaders were released.

And as you say, the only way you stop the Taliban is going back to what the USA and partner countries did in 2001 and you're back to a full scale war.

And of course there will be this now:

I wish I could say I am surprised. Biden made a catastrophic error in the eyes of the world, though it is hard to say what the impact will be domesticly as withdrawal has been a big desire for a long time.

Whatever happens, we've passed the point of no return now and the only way I can see NATO going back is if War is declared.

A horrific situation that everyone saw coming

But he’d already extended it by 4 months.

The “West” spent 20 years effectively hollowing out the country, which was always going to leave the Taliban on top when the US left. All seems a colossal waste of time and a tragedy.

He's a moron. Maybe there's something in the reports that he's not mentally fit for office after all!

The very fact it was Trump who agreed this 'peace' deal with the Taliban should have been enough to make them do a sh*t load of due diligence around the likely implications of following the plan. I can't believe the greatest strategic minds in the US looked at a sudden, total withdrawal of support and thought 'yeah, that's a good idea'.

This could well finish Biden off, later if not necessarily now. And he'd deserve it too.
