Taliban Target Minorities.
One remembers the awful images of Afghan civilians running after Allied planes as they flew out of Kabul. The terrible image of a man falling from an Allied plane as it took off. Of Afghan civilians flinging their babies over walls to American and British soldiers. Of Afghans hoping they had the right papers so they could leave with the Allied forces. Many did get out and many are still waiting to get out. Afghans that worked for the former regime and/or the Allies are now in fear of their lives. They are being systematically hunted down by the Taliban.

However, as we know Vlad the Invader miscalculated big time. He did not anticipate that Ukraine would defend its nation to the death. Putin did not also take into account how vulnerable his forces would be to western supplied weapons.

Graham Brady Chairperson of the infamous 1922 Committee has indicated such a threshold has been reached. Mr. Brady also announced that he had told the Prime Minister on Sunday. Certainly, at Royal Jubilee events Boris looked forlorn worrying about his predicament.
