With the US departure the Taliban have in essence won , what they do now is wholly up to them , they will quickly take control of the country and no doubt put in place the strictest variants of Shariah law , women will be 3rd class chattel with almost no rights or say in their soclety .
I am sure the US knew all of this was going to occur
Afghanistan's embassy has released a series of deeply distressing videos which appear to show civilians being tortured and murdered by the Taliban as the group intensifies its campaign to take control of the country.

The Taliban will eventually take over the country , they will enforce the worst elements of Shariah Law and punish the tens of thousands who had helped the Americans in one way or the other , an ignominious ending to the US efforts
Another utterly pointless war with no winners.
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 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...
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - More women and children were killed and wounded in Afghanistan in the first half of 2021 than in the first six months of any year since the United Nations began systematically keeping count in 2009, a U.N.Read more from AP NEWS
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
"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 ."
Lot of truth in that.
The victims in Afghanistan will be the women and girls as medieval Islam is imposed.
