They announced that they would not surrender

Afghan Vice President Amrullah Saleh, following the escape of former leader Ashraf Ghani from the country, declared himself the new interim president and called on the people to join him in resisting the Taliban.

The forces of Amrullah Saleh, the former vice president of Afghanistan, who had previously declared himself president of the republic, have regained control of the Charikar area in Panjshir province.

Ten thousand soldiers, including the forces of General Abdul Rashid Dostum, are moving towards Panjsher in the war against the Taliban.

A strategically important road passes through Charikar through the Salang Tunnel that connects Kabul and Mazar-i-Sharif, the largest city in northern Afghanistan. By the way, the influential General Dostum crossed the border with Uzbekistan together with a number of soldiers.

He announced on Twitter that he had remained in Afghanistan and was “addressing all leaders to ensure support and consensus”.

The Taliban entered Kabul on Sunday and declared victory in the war.

  1. Biden and his Administration are ignorant about the Taliban. As the 20th year of 9-11 approaches we have not won this war on Terror, terror has won. Good Lost to Evil. USA should have kept Bagram Airbase, and pulled everyone back to that location as the proverbial Alamo, and had decent Defenses, USA could’ve withdrew the Embassy, and evacuated more people and equipment from the 2 runways at the airbase. Instead Joe closed Bagram and is operating recklessly from an international Afghanistan Airport. Pulled out the Embassy disastrously. There was Prior Warnings, there was Piss Poor Planning, and USA has Tensions with Afghanistan, UK, And others. USA looks Weak and with Joe, incapable.
