More than 200 Americans have been left behind in Afghanistan, despite efforts to carry out a safe evacuation mission before the Taliban deadline.
Amongst those 200 US citizens is a young 3-year-old boy from California who just couldn’t make it past the checkpoint. And that’s because his family suffered physical beatings from the Taliban who just wouldn’t let them get through and board the last flight back home.
But that is not the only horrifying story to come out recently.Another heartbreaking incident entailed a pregnant woman being kicked in her stomach by the Taliban, after which she was forced to enter into hiding.
She reportedly tried to flee from the Taliban-controlled nation with her husband but was unsuccessful in doing so, explained reports.
Meanwhile, two families from El Cajon which is a suburban area in San Diego are also trying their best to evacuate.
So many Americans are pleading with the Biden administration for help as they fear for their lives in Kabul. The Taliban have taken full control of the nation, where many Afghans were seen celebrating yesterday.
They even carried out mock funerals with fireworks and loud cheers as coffins lined with US, UK, French, and Nato flags were paraded through the streets.
The Taliban also sent out a chilling message to the world, explaining how the American mission to invade the nation proved to be unsuccessful, despite a 20-year long reign.
Hence, Taliban leaders lined Kabul’s runways where they boldly proclaimed that this US defeat was a huge lesson for the world and especially the West to remember.
Meanwhile, President Biden addressed the nation yesterday, defending his decision for US withdrawal from Afghanistan. The President was also questioned regarding why he did not begin his evacuation efforts before. And on that note, he added that he just couldn’t, even if he wanted.
Calling his withdrawal an extraordinary success, many questioned the President’s defiant stance as more than 100 Americans continue to remain stranded with an uncertain future in the war-torn country.
