Now that the government of Afghanistan has fallen, the Taliban have stepped into the void left by the Afghan Army – by seizing the arms, tanks, Humvees, Black Hawk helicopters, and attack aircraft from jets to helicopters. Billions of US taxpayer dollars are now in the hands of a ruthless, bloodthirsty enemy. For its part, China says it looks forward to working with the Taliban. And the whole thing could get worse soon since the Taliban shopping spree included so much equipment.

Small arms and ammo
The Taliban are currently taking all kinds of weapons and ammunition the US left behind. What a disaster— After Dark Show (@BigCityAndrew) August 16, 2021
While this is all going on:
✔️Biden is on vacation
✔️Harris is focused on “Haiti”
✔️Psaki taking the week off
No accountability! 🤬

The Taliban are not trained in the use of the helicopters or jets… or are they? Footage from some of the areas taken by the Taliban show them operating the aircraft. According to Global Security, some of the American-trained Afghan pilots joined the Taliban.
Up until this week, the Taliban had no air force. They do now. Black Hawks, Attack Helicopters, Humvees, tanks left behind for the Afghan Army – which is no longer in existence.

Let’s see how much Iran or China pay the Taliban for them to investigate our western technology …#EpicFail #Afghanistan pic.twitter.com/YlG8rwlXNe
The Taliban met with Chinese Communist Party representatives in July.
Barbaric, backward, and bloodthirsty – the Taliban have taken over a country they previously ruled and will send it back to the dark ages once again. The Taliban shopping spree has paid off well.
