Abstract: Occupation was the law in post-war Afghanistan. On August 15, the Taliban Islamic militia swept into the Afghan capital of Kabul. U.S. President Joe Biden inherited his predecessor’s withdrawal plan and only altered it at the margins: Choosing the symbolic 20-year anniversary of the attacks on mainland US on September 11, 2001, as the final date for withdrawal. The fall of Kabul represents the collapse of US strategy, which relied upon a confederacy of warlords as a nation-building strategy.
