October 2001: When the longest war began

We found a great video on YouTube that profile some of the news coverage from October 2001 when the United States lead invasion of Afghanistan began.

And now, nearly 20 years later, thousands of United States soldiers injured and dead, tens of thousands of Afghan civilians killed. Trillion spent. And assurances from President Joe Biden in July that there would never be an immediate takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban.

Despite all that, despite the war, and 20 years of division, the Taliban took over the entire nation in Capitol, route it out translators who helped United States, began to enforce a Burka policy on women, and stops females from working in the banking industry. All in hours.Despite all that, despite the war, and 20 years of division, the Taliban took over the entire nation in Capitol, route it out translators who helped United States, began to enforce a Burka policy on women, and stops females from working in the banking industry.

What are the war was a necessity or choice, and whether you feel it was successful as a venture or a failure, we know this: 20 years of military and tactical battle, all wiped out in 20 hours..
