News Synopsis

The geopolitics of Afghanistan is one of the most complex and violent chapters in modern history. The country has seen a lot of distressful times and seems like there’s lots more the country and its citizen will have to tolerate since the Taliban has overthrown the government of Afghanistan. And we all know the extremist politics of the Taliban. What happened 2 days ago in Kabul is just an example of how the Taliban is planning to run the country. 

The bombing cost the lives of many. Thankfully another such tragedy was averted but now reports are coming that there may have been few potential casualties too, most probably locals. America’s statement on this just proved their neglect towards Afghan locals and it’s embarrassing, to say the least.

Be it America or the Taliban, at the end of the day, it’s Afghani locals who have to bear with all the loss. They had been facing atrocities for a long time and the moment they had begun to build their country from ashes, they are again struck by tragedy. What’s more scary and disappointing is that the whole world is watching. Time will only tell us how the Taliban will run the country.
