The same group that the CIA funded back then, turned on the US troops when they invaded. So the terrorists that the US was funding at one point, fought the US up to the point of pulling out, and they are the same groups, although with different names attached, that are now fighting the Afghan army.
“This Is What Winning Looks Like” is a disturbing new documentary about the ineptitude, drug abuse, sexual misconduct, and corruption of the Afghan security forces as well as the reduced role of US Marines due to the troop withdrawal.
Despite winning every battle, the wars in both Afghanistan and Iraq were lost. Despite America spending TRILLIONS on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and losing lots of US veterans, the hearts and minds of the Afghani people were lost, due to multiple things that Americans did wrong or did not even understand when first going into these countries.
51: in; In a meeting between local elected officials, they declare openly and in public that the war against the Taliban was never won, and that they are being left with the same problems that were there before the Americans came in, but without any weapons to fight them with.
The civilians are in the middle and do not pick sides, because if they do, they will be punished, jailed, tortured or killed, either by one side in the war or the other, depending on which side they pick. Thus if they help one side or the other, they have to do it in secret and not let anyone know.
2014 – INSIDE THE AFGHAN ARMY, AFTER AMERICANS LEFT; WHAT HAPPENED IN KHANDAHAR, A MAJOR CITY IN THE SOUTH, A STRONGHOLD FOR THE BEST, WELL TRAINED AFGHAN TROOPS?
Compared to the rest of the country, things seem to be much better in southern Afghanistan, where the army, National Guard and police patrol daily and work together to hold large cities, such as this one; Kandahar
. But even here, the evidence is there that the Taliban are still in existence, although probably much less than in the northern areas where Afghanistan.
What would happen in this large city, if they did not have all of the checkpoints and overlapping heavy security forces patrolling every day?
After the US left 800 bases and outposts in Afghanistan, only 100 were manned by the Afghans, and the rest were abandoned. The first video above this one goes into much more detail around one specific Afghan army base and what it was like there, but this video stays really general and never gets into specifics. There is a ‘handler’ always present, making sure that no one ever talks about what it is really like. Everything is staged for the camera and set up by the handler.
20: in – Public education schools set up by the Americans were abandoned all over Afghanistan, because the Taliban threatened to kill anyone who kept on going to these public schools after the Americans left with death, acid baths, or assassination. The Taliban won this war, because education is what really matters, not winning battles or even wars. If you can control the education as the extremists are doing in many countries, they can win long term, no matter how many battles or wars the US wins. No one seems to understand this, and very few care whether there are madrasas spread all over the Middle East, raising millions of new recruits for terrorist groups.
All of the money that the US spent on setting up public schools, teachers and supplies, all over Afghanistan, was wasted. The Taliban control the education, and thus the minds and hearts of the population these days. They are raising the next ‘crop’ of terrorists, just like in Pakistan and other countries, where madrasas (religious schools) are where most poor people send their children for ‘education’. To learn more about the roots of terrorism and where terrorism is born, click on the following article and dive into the madrasas school section…

Wikipedia; “The overall literacy rate (6+ years of age) fell from 16% in 2005 to 7% in 2011. The overall net enrollment rate (6–13 years of age) fell from 23% in 2005 to 11% in 2011
is one of the largest educational institutions in the province. It has over 5,000 students, about 300 of which are female students.
In partnership with the Asia Foundation
, Kandahar University conducted a pilot project that provided female high school graduates with a four-month refresher course to prepare for the college entrance examination. The university is only one of two universities in Kandahar that serve all of southern Afghanistan. The conditions in the university are poor but improving slowly. The university is far behind the universities of the North because of the violence, the two universities in southern Afghanistan also receive very limited funding.
Efforts to improve education in Afghanistan are severely hampered with shortage of books. Lack of funding, and political will, has led to only small gains since the fall of the Taliban. Education has moved somewhat upward in the rest of the country, but southern provinces, like Kandahar, have seen slow progress because of the continued fighting and instability of the region. In 2006 alone, almost 150 educational institutes have closed in Kandahar province alone, according to the education ministry. Regionally more than 50 schools have been attacked this year. Over 60,000 students cannot attend school because of the risk of attack.
Some of the well known schools in Kandahar are Ahmad Shah Baba High School, Zarghuna Ana High School, Mir Wais High School, Shah Mahmud High School, and Mahmud Tarzi High School, Afghan Turk High Schools
Did things get better after most American troops left, declaring that the Taliban had all been killed or tossed out of the country? What follows are some videos of Taliban attacking either US or Afghan vehicles. Notice that they avoid blowing up the civilian trucks and cars, but concentrate on the military vehicles.
Why do these Afghans hate Americans and their allies so much? Maybe it has something to do with Bagram, torturing, kidnappings and renditions, plus Guantanamo Bay?

melting mermaid June 1, 2015 What? Saddam Hussein was a CIA asset? You don’t say?
No, Bin Laden, too?
No, Pinochet too. And on 9/11. Crazy
And of course, Karzi in Afghanistan is no exception to this rule… he is CIA asset material as well.

The Taliban are still blowing people and things up, even in 2015. As the previous video explains, mines are the main source of casualties and injuries for police and troops. Blowing things up takes a lot of money, sophisticated talent and energy by a large group of people.
Obviously the Taliban are still strong, because they are controlling the education system, while diverting attention with these bomb attacks, which get everyone riled up, but there is nothing anyone can do about it.
More Taliban attacks 2015
2015 – Firing at US base with what looks like stolen US weapons. Not all Americans pulled out, as agreement was signed so that some US troops kept on staying in Afghanistan.
In the video above, that army base does not look like it is in very good shape, despite it still flying the Afghan flag. Notice the blast holes in buildings, and mortars hitting the base, with no return fire. Remember that the Afghans have no air support or heavy weapons, GPS or high technology. All those poor guys in these remote outposts have to fight with is a couple of AK’s.
Does this look like ‘winning’ to you?
CHINA MOVING INTO AFGHANISTAN, TAKING THE CONTRACTS THAT US COMPANIES WERE EXPECTING TO GET, DUE TO BEING THE OCCUPYING FORCE
So now we can tie up another string I left dangling in my VICE report
regarding my get-together with Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s chief peace negotiator, Yahya Maroofi. Maroofi mentioned that the US was furious at Karzai’s granting the first mining contracts to – you guessed it! – Chinese state companies – despite the massive payments by US corporations to Karzai’s family and political allies. (Indeed, Karzai signed with the Chinese partly because of the pay-offs, which made him furious.) Karzai is prepared to give the Chinese a uranium concession. It’s clear, the USA is badly losing this nuclear war with China.
Because Americans and their politicians are so fixated on winning every battle and nothing else matters in the mass media, the Communists can win by coming in and picking up what really matters after the US soldiers spill their blood for the Soviets, and then leave.

Of course, in Iraq, the situation is even worse, with ISIS taking over much of Syria and Iraq. Again, the same situation as in Afghanistan; every battle that US forces fought, they won, but the overall war was lost. As soon as US troops left, the ISIS troops, (equivalent to Taliban) took over large areas of Iraq and Syria.
