Twenty-years war on terror ended, yet Afghan situation is still worrying
Translated by: Redd <MOS Art Group>
Based on the source from the Pentagon, Gen. Frank McKenzie, the commander of U.S. Central Command and Marine Corp officially announced today (August 31) the war in Afghanistan is over. With the last Boeing C-17 Globemaster III leaving Kabul, this withdrawal has come to a complete end.
Since Sep.11, 2001, over 800,000 American soldiers and 25,000 civilians have served in Afghanistan. In nearly twenty years of fighting terrorism, a total of 2,461 U.S. soldiers and civilians were killed in Afghanistan, including the thirteen U.S. soldiers who were killed in Kabul airport last week.
According to the White House, on August 29, U.S. Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken called CCP’s State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi. Over the phone, Blinken expressed that the international community is demanding that the Taliban live up to its commitments to allow safe travel for foreign nationals and Afghans.
Wang Yi, however, threatened Blinken during the call that if the U.S. wished the Taliban to stop attacking Americans, then the U.S. government should stop pressuring the WHO on investigating the origin of the coronavirus.
All indicated that even though the U.S. military evacuated from Afghanistan, the future situation for Afghanistan is still worrying with CCP’s interference.
