But powerful enough to challenge the Taliban?
And now Iran's theocracy must face their second most deadly enemy (after Israel).
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.
They have had support from China, Russia and Pakistan and Qatar all of whom are opposed to the US .
This is an aside but if Israel left the West Bank , HAMAS like the Taliban would sweep through the area in a day such is the inept abilities of the Palestinian Authorities .
