The US ran out of steam , with all these conflicts so far from their home the US starts well then flounders then puts its hands up and in the end is seen as despite their incredible power as being weak , to win these conflicts you have to be more vicious than your enemy , if you are not then it is a matter of time before the body bag count becomes one too many even though US loses were light .

The face of modern warfare has changed beyond recognition and today it is fought in the cities with civilian casualties being seen as ammunition to the terrorist and a deterrent to the other side

The Taliban say they don’t want to monopolize power... but...

The Taliban will retake Afghanistan and first and foremost take reprisals against every body and anybody who assisted the US .

The void left by the US is similar to the mess we left behind in Gaza and before that in Lebanon in each case our worst enemies stepped into the breech .

You have to wonder how much the US was helping...

The US supplied the Taliban with weapons to fight the Russians who ultimately gave up the ghost and the void was then filled by the US who were then fighting a group of people who knew every inch of their land , the Taliban intended to ensure the US would not have a victory.

With regards to casualties the Taliban I am sure have no interest in how many are killed or injured this is for them merely an aside

Lot of truth in that. 

The victims in Afghanistan will be the women and girls as medieval Islam is imposed.

Hardly a surprise. Years back the Taliban banned football and cricket because it kept men away from prayers. Most of their fighters enjoy cricket so there is a little bit of hope for change.

There's no solution.

The Taliban have won.

We can and should support the Gov in Kabul which is the only hope for people who have benefited from Western influences. The girls who have been schooled and have gone to universities abroad. The young women who haven't been forcibly married off. The gay people who have 'come out'. The musicians and cricketers who were declared un-Islamic by the Taliban when they were in charge some years back.

We should all make it easy for those who have helped NATO and are in fear of their lives to seek asylum in our countries.

The Taliban are utterly backward and repressive and only a shade less bad than ISIS.
