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.
They certainly played the long game and let the US take care of ISIS for them.

The USA has left a void which is being filled by the Taliban , we left GAZA and the void was filled by Hamas , we left LEBANON and the void was filled by Hezbollah in the 3 cases had Israel and the US negotiated their removal with the national parties the possibility of these events occurring would have lessened .
It is interesting that nobody learns from History and in each case it repeats itself .
What is really astonishing is the speed and efficiency of which the Taliban is taking the country.
The US WISHES they were that organised.
