The U.S. military is seriously thinking of coordinating with the Taliban in their seemingly shared effort to defeat the Islamic State group’s branch in Afghanistan. They are ISIS-K. This is what the Pentagon’s top officer said. Even as he described went ahead and describing the insurgent group that now is ruling Kabul as “ruthless.” What mess this unconscionable tragedy has become!
Joining Forces with the Tailban
“It, in fact, is possible,” Army Gen. Mark Milley. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said. This was in a press conference when was asking about joining forces with the Taliban for the counterterror effort.
Both the Taliban and ISIS-K are at the bare minimum, the “least rivals” in Afghanistan. This is what American officials have assessed if not sworn enemies. In fact, the top military officers have also said that the Taliban’s decision into going to liberate all detainees from prisons the U.S. establishing during its 20-year war in Afghanistan. They are going to return to the battlefield with up to 2,000 ISIS-K fighters. More problems and bloodshed!
U.S. has Unsavory Options
After the planned withdraw imploded (that’s putting it mildly) it was an epic disaster of huge proportions! Guess what? The U.S. is facing “unsavory” options regarding its future in Afghanistan. There was a complete embarrassment and devastation of the collapse of a supposed 300,000-strong Afghan army U.S. military is seriously thinking of coordinating with the Taliban in their seemingly shared effort to defeat the Islamic State group’s branch in Afghanistan. That, in fact, the U.S. did help stand up along with the regular threats posed by ISIS-K.
A branch of the original group that arose in Iraq and Syria in 2014, the terrorist network, has claimed responsibility for an attack that took place at an airport gate in Kabul which killed 13 U.S. service members last week.
Coordinating with Past and Present Enemies?
In recent days, the U.S. military and administration officials are revealing that there are questionable levels of coordination during the evacuation between American planners in Afghanistan and the Taliban. This “wonderful” group the U.S. originally was trying to defeat and invaded the country to dismantle. However, these now include reports that the U.S. did rely on the insurgent group. They are now arming with billions of dollars worth of high-tech military equipment the departing forces left behind. Thus to shepherd forward Americans through chaotic scenes in Kabul. Then to the airport gates for evacuation.
