It is the day former President Ashraf Ghani ran away as Taliban forces sped on Kabul, the city that had become the center of IEDs and targeted killings the previous year. Ghani had been silent for the past eleven days, never mentioning a single province that had fallen to the Taliban. It took several weeks for him to apologize after he got to safety. Even today, his government – full of ministers, ambassadors and generals long persecuted by allegations of corruption, sexual harassment, fraud, incompetence and war crimes – never had to be interrogated in Afghanistan. These officials are now in Dubai, Istanbul and New Delhi.

During Ghani’s escape, more than 32 million Afghans were left to their own devices against a group that claimed to be fighting foreign occupation but was better known for sending suicide bombers to attack civilians: people working in a restaurant celebrated at the lake birthday 20 minutes from town; Media workers on their way home from the office; Families gathering for dinner on the eve of the Persian New Year.

The old decision-makers were gone overnight. Game shows, singing competitions, and boring Turkish series went off the air. Thousands of people flocked to the airport to catch the last flight from Kabul.

And then the economy collapsed when the US Federal Reserve, World Bank and International Monetary Fund blocked the country from accessing billions in assets, aid and credit. Western Union quickly followed suit. The world, Washington in particular, wanted to punish the group with whom Donald Trump had signed a peace deal just 18 months earlier and Joe Biden had watched the strong arm come back to power. Even when they refused to open their doors to refugees, countries said it was « impossible » to recognize the Taliban’s interim government.

The Afghan people were left alone and collapsed. Current topic

When the initial shock of the Taliban’s return to power wore off, the devastation of lack of cash, employment and income began to sink. Suddenly the streets of Kabul were lined with fridges, televisions, cutlery, carpets, air conditioners, and anything else people could sell – always at a massive discount – to buy food, pay rent, and turn on the lights. Today more than half of the population – around 22.5 million people – are facing a winter of catastrophic food insecurity; up to 1 million children could die.

Among the many lessons learned over the past four months, one has become criminally clear that after more than 20 years of occupation, the Afghan economy has become a shell that is dependent on aid. As soon as development aid was cut, the whole structure crumbled, trapping people in what the United Nations called a « humanitarian » disaster. Even commercial ventures that should have been independent businesses were somehow tied to foreign contracts, international NGOs, embassies, or grants. When these offices closed, the many who were dependent on them began to suffer: the small shops where clerks bought their groceries; the travel agents who have booked tickets for their trips; the tailors who sewed the suits they wore; the money changers who exchanged their currencies.

Of course, the Taliban leadership did not suffer from any of this. Neither does Ghani or his global co-conspirators. Those who are suffering today are the same who suffered during the 20 years of Western-backed occupation and the Taliban’s alleged struggle against it – the people. The crime has not resolved. The so-called Islamic State continues to be a force. The Taliban have beaten up and arrested journalists. They are accused of having forcibly evicted people from their land. They reportedly intimidated or killed hundreds of former security forces in retaliation for their association with the western allied government. Teenage girls are still largely unable to go to school. Thousands of women are scared or unable to go back to work.

None of this was inevitable, of course, but all of that might have been expected. It is the direct result of a single August day that has been worked on for 20 years. Given the uncertainty of 2022, one thing is certain: the people of Afghanistan are still on their own.
