Taliban messaging in recent days is basically: “Don’t worry foreign troops, we won’t hit you on your way out. Don’t worry foreign aid workers, we won’t hit you when you stay-and we welcome your money. But do worry fellow Afghans, as we’ve given no assurances about your security.”

The Taliban are terrorists: they target civilians, commit war crimes. They are also the main victims of Pakistan's proxy war, comprising over half of the 124,000 killed since 2001 -- young lives taken from us to be cannon fodder in GHQ's senseless slaughter. #EndProxyWar
