Other countries getting pissed at the US unilaterally taking over the international airport instead of hanging on to Bagram and using that.

Still no further information on the Taliban vs ISIL battle in Bagram prison.

Settle down, Pie eyed, we're making plans to get them out. Can't do it without making plans.

Meanwhile, this is the "secured" airport with a Globemaster taxiing before takeoff. Note the people standing on the main landing gear doors.


No need to link the video of the people falling when the gear was raised after takeoff.
Seriously?
Do you think that it's too much to expect a Government to have thought for 2 or 3 minutes before they abandon a country we have been fighting in for 20 years?
Morrison is now playing the idiot.
We wasted 20 years, billions of dollars and hundreds of lives to suck US cock and win John Howard an election.
This Government are simpletons.

Yes Morrison, our forces wasted their time and lives for Liberal party whims.

Did you want to waste another 20 years over there for the same results we have seen? Another trillion dollars maybe. More Aussie and Allied troops dead? More civilians killed. Allies killed around 45,000 civillians in that time did you know. I suppose another 20 or 30 years, we couldve got that up to a few hundred thousand.

Morrison is just a bystander in this as is Australia. Not on him at all and your Liberal party comment is nonsense.

No.
We should never have been there in the first place, however you do not abandon those who assisted you while you were there to be slaughtered.
Morrison is a slug and a piece of sh*t at best. In this he is a gutless opportunist piece of sh*t.
Defend him all you like.
Go on say "they knew what they were getting into" I dare you.

I agree we should never have been there. Not matter how and when the allies left, this was ineveitable.

Allies spent billions training the Afgan troops. All for nothing as they rolled over without a shot fired. No one couldve predicted that

Who is getting slaughtered? Afgan troops are seen to be handing their weapons over to the Taliban and shaking hands with them

Really? I thought it was pretty ******* obvious. They aren't fighting for their country. They aren't fighting for a way of life. They aren't fighting some foreign enemy. They've had 20 years of watching successive governments siphon massive amounts of cash for themselves while doing SFA, and once the occupying forces flew out and took their gravy train with them, it wouldn't take Nostradamus to predict the ruling class would piss off with them and the reprisals would begin.

The surrenders and handovers began a year ago.

" After the fall of Kabul, Washington said the Taliban will not get access to Afghanistan’s national reserves kept in US-controlled bank accounts, which were estimated at $9.4 billion in April. "

Colour me shocked and surprised.

Australia has no role to play in it, please don't put aus along the same level as USA and britain, aus is an irrelevant little island that ideally should have stayed out of all the world's affairs but it chose to take on china. Good work morrison.

I can assure you this as chinese myself that in the coming decade, china will obliterate australia, obliterate with a capital O. Wiill give you details in time.
We have been bleeding and dying along side our American brothers longer than your communist sh*t show has existed. Don’t worry China has been told to pull its head in and pull it in quick.
You have no idea.

"Yeah, nah, too late, suck sh*t"

Peter Dutton has got blood on his hands, for months now deliberately preventing Afghanis who put their lives at risk helping Australians from coming to Australia.
Far from being ashamed, I reckon he'll be quite pleased with himself.

Yes. Yes I believe you.
There will be no recriminations.
Plenty of right wing stupidity in the West.
It's almost like a sport, posting bullshit to support Liberal dickheads.

News says:
Ashraf Ghani, the US-backed president of Afghanistan who fled before the Taliban, has re-emerged in the United Arab Emirates. In a Facebook video, he defended his actions and denied reports he took millions in cash with him.
Ghani fled Kabul over the weekend, and his whereabouts were unknown until the UAE confirmed on Wednesday it had welcomed the former president and his family “on humanitarian grounds.”
Multiple diplomats spoke of Ghani fleeing the country with suitcases of cash, even saying he left some behind at the Kabul airport. According to the Afghan ambassador to neighboring Tajikistan, quoted by the BBC, Ghani took $169 million with him.

Probably tucked it away in Cayman Island bank accounts months ago.

Shouldn't lol but... UK embassy guards escorted diplomats to the airport and helped them board an evac flight, and were told to go home and they weren't eligible to even apply for assistance (even though some of them had been front-line staffing the embassy for 10 years) because they were contractors and not employees. Go talk to your Canadian employer.

So typical.
