Have you heard the saying “To the victor goes the spoils”? In this tragic case, the victor is the Taliban, and the spoils are billions of dollars in U.S. military equipment that President Biden left in Afghanistan. Now, the Taliban is holding “victory parades” while riding in American military vehicles.
“The Taliban are now brazenly showing off the US military equipment — including Black Hawk helicopters, dozens of armored vehicles and weapons — abandoned by US troops amid President Biden’s chaotic final exit from Afghanistan,” according to the New York Post. [emphasis added]
“Islamist fighters staged victory parades Wednesday in Kandahar, Afghanistan’s second-biggest city, as they showed off the US military hardware they’ve now seized. [emphasis added]
“Videos showed heavily-armed Taliban fighters standing on top of a long line of captured Humvees and other tactical vehicles, as they drove along a highway.
“In embarrassing scenes for the US, a Black Hawk helicopter even flew circles overhead.” [emphasis added]
