Afghanistan One Year After the Expulsion of US Forces

One year has passed since the historic defeat and expulsion of US and NATO occupation forces in Afghanistan at the hands of a popular resistance led by the Taliban movement, an occupation that lasted for 20 years and which began a generation ago as part of America's domestic subsidy program for defense contractors called the "Global War on Terror".

The Afghanistan War and occupation ended up being America's and NATO's most humiliating defeat since the loss of the Vietnam War, with the images of Afghans holding on and falling off massive US military transport planes as they are taking off from Kabul airport, seared into the minds of global audiences watching these images in the media, similar to the images of US helicopters fleeing from the roof of the US embassy in Saigon at the end of the Vietnam War.
