Taliban Take to The Skies

The Taliban on Saturday took to the skies with helicopters they seized from the US-backed Afghan puppet government just two or three days ago.

From The Daily Mail, "Air Taliban: Fighters seize $6million US Blackhawk helicopters alongside tons of American equipment - while taking to the skies in captured Russian choppers as advance approaches outskirts of Kabul":
Taliban fighters today seized $6million US Blackhawk helicopters alongside tons of American equipment as they took to the skies in captured Russian choppers amid their advance through Afghanistan.

A series of videos being shared on social media show insurgents flying the Kremlin-made mi-17 aircraft around the city of Kandahar [...]

Even more seismic, however, is the evidence that the Taliban have also seized American-made Blackhawk helicopters, made famous in the 2001 Ridley Scott blockbuster.

The Afghan government pilots who fly the operational Russian helicopters have been turned to the Taliban, while the US helicopters are likely to be grounded by a lack of spare parts from the United States.

The White House has spent billions of dollars on supplying the Afghan military with the necessary weapons and equipment to wipe out the Taliban, but following the collapse of local armed forces, their investment is now effectively being used by the insurgents themselves as they bid to control more and more major cities.

From The Daily Mail, "Rampant Taliban ransack the palatial home of top Afghan warlord and US ally General Dostum amid claims fighters have reached the outskirts of Kabul which will fall in HOURS":
The Taliban have ransacked the palatial home of top Afghan warlord and US ally General Dostum amid claims that fighters have reached the outskirts of Kabul.

Insurgents tightened their grip on Afghanistan on Saturday by capturing Mazar-e-Sharif - a large, heavily defended city in the north of the country - in a major setback for the government.

[...] Meanwhile, the Taliban raided the home of Army Marshal Rashid Dostum - an infamous warlord and a former Afghan vice president who has survived the past 40 years of conflict by cutting deals and switching sides. He has also gained notoriety for crushing prisoners under tanks.

A major army commander in the government during the Soviet-Afghan war, he was the key indigenous ally to US Special Forces and the CIA during the campaign to topple the Taliban government in 2001.

On Saturday, fighters wielding guns were filmed walking around the luxurious oval-shaped room, filled with chandeliers and gold furniture, and posing in chairs.
The Taliban took their country back after 20 years of guerrilla warfare and now they're seizing billions in US assets.

This is total humiliation for the Globalist American Empire.

Cities are falling to the Taliban every few hours.

Afghanistan's capital of Kabul is the only major city left for the Taliban to retake.

The power to the city was cut on Saturday ahead of the final battle.

"I have authorized the deployment of approximately 5,000 U.S. troops to make sure we can have an orderly and safe drawdown of U.S. personnel and other allied personnel, and an orderly and safe evacuation of Afghans who helped our troops during our mission and those at special risk from the Taliban advance," Biden announced in a statement on Saturday.

"I have placed Ambassador Tracey Jacobson in charge of a whole-of-government effort to process, transport, and relocate Afghan Special Immigrant Visa applicants and other Afghan allies," he continued. "Our hearts go out to the brave Afghan men and women who are now at risk. We are working to evacuate thousands of those who helped our cause and their families."

Invade the world, invite the world!

Some 100,000 Afghan "refugees" are expected to apply to become New Americans™ in the coming weeks and thousands are already being flown in to Fort Lee, Virginia and Hartford, Connecticut as we speak.
