So, as it turns out, the Taliban are not quite the sweethearts everyone wants us to believe… imagine that.
Reports broke this morning that more than 100 Afghan troops have been killed since the Taliban takeover of the country.
So much for the promise of not hurting anyone.
U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres petitioned the U.N. Security Council on the matter last week.
He stated, “As I appeal to the international community to step up support for the people of Afghanistan, I make an equally urgent plea to the Taliban leadership to recognize and protect the fundamental human rights that every person shares.”
The report found that roughly two-thirds of those that were killed were done so by extrajudicial killings by the Taliban.
Guterres, in his report, stated that he had also received “credible allegations of extrajudicial killings of at least 50 individuals suspected of affiliation with ISIL-KP.”
Even though the Taliban has denied it, there were additional allegations “of enforced disappearances and other violations impacting the right to life and physical integrity” of former coalition and government members.
Media members and human rights defenders continue “to come under attack, intimidation, harassment, arbitrary arrest, ill-treatment and killings.”
The Taliban continues to demand legitimacy and recognition, but that should not even be an option as long as this is occurring.
Of course, Biden continues to send aid to Afghanistan, even though everyone knows the money eventually winds up in the hands of the Taliban.
Perhaps it is time that Afghanistan just gets erased from the map… that would solve everything.
