Afghanistan is INCREDIBLY rich in Minerals
Russia invaded Afghanistan for complex reasons relating to China / Pakistan and the USA - Suffice to say their machinations became unhinged
The US Invasion was to dismantle AQ and remove the Taliban , they got half of what they wanted and lost in the end to the Taliban
Complex ideas by Russia and the US mostly achieved nothing
Watch for the flood of migrants heading west!
The Taliban will just wake up from hibernation and pick up where they left off.
So yeah. Understandable amount of fleeing for their lives.
Especially considering the poor translators are not being protected.
