Stephen’s View On Afghanistan & Taliban
On the Late Show hosted by Stephen Colbert, he discussed the distressful situation Afghanistan is in due to the fall of Kabul. The American troops had withdrawn securities after 20 years from the land of Afghanistan. After few days of the retrieval, the Taliban attacked and seized control over almost every part of the country.
Colbert talked about how the Taliban had taken all the expensive resources that the American government had left there. The Taliban had taken most of the military arsenals such as guns, ammunition, and fighter aircraft. He talked about the situation in a funny manner while keeping in mind the gravity of the current situation.
The Taliban’s New Announcement
The 53-year-old comedian talked about how monstrous the previous regime of the Taliban was. He discussed the time when the Taliban was in power and it basically stripped off the civil rights of people, especially women. While the country is in turmoil, the Taliban have proposed a new identity for themselves claiming a reformation. They say that they are not the same Taliban anymore.
They vowed to reinvent themselves as they gave themselves a new name “Tali-buddies” and not Taliban, which implies their claim of being a friendly association that doesn’t promote violence. Colbert reported in a funny way that the Taliban have promised that they will not indulge in reprisal killings.
