Taliban Facing Blackout in Kabul

It appears as though the Taliban cannot pay its bills.

Reports are now surfacing that Central Asian electricity suppliers have not been paid by the Taliban since taking over.

This means that Kabul could soon be plunged into darkness just as the winter season is about to fall.

Humanitarian Disaster Imminent

With the Taliban only in charge for little more than a month, its first humanitarian crisis looms.

Honestly, I am not sure this is not being done by design to get an influx of money into the country.

Daud Noorzai, who resigned as chief executive of the country’s state power monopoly, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), stated, “The consequences would be countrywide, but especially in Kabul.

“There will be blackout and it would bring Afghanistan back to the Dark Ages when it comes to power and to telecommunications.

“This would be a really dangerous situation.”

Of particular interest among its suppliers is Tajikistan, which has sheltered anti-Taliban resistance members.

Tajikistan could pull the plug at any moment on the DABS, leaving the capital city without power.

Is it beneath the Taliban to use this crisis as a way to draw in more aid from other nations on a humanitarian basis?

To me, that seems like this is the play here, but we will find out soon enough when the lights go out.
