I feel like we’re going to have more news on this.

Biden giving an address a few minutes from now:

I realized the US war there is older than geeknights.

This doesn’t format great when the forum previews the link, but suffice it to say the United States has been at war for 50% or a lot more for most of our lives

So the Taliban, Al-Qaeda, ISIS have been a threat for 20~ years.


Who’s been giving them bullets and guns this whole time?

From what I’ve been reading forces in Pakistan have been arming the Taliban. Plus there are lots of 3rd party ways to get guns and ammo.

Plus the Opium trade was one of the ways the Taliban raised money.
