The deadliest terror act on American territory has been carried out for the past 20 years. Two planes collided with the World Trade Center skyscrapers in Manhattan, another collided with the Pentagon, and the hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 was brought down by courageous passengers. At least 2,977 citizens would be killed, and the nation’s psyche would be scarred.
Following the 9/11 attacks, the United States embarked on two costly military campaigns in the Middle East: the Iraq War and the Afghan War. Afghanistan’s military battle grew into the ill-fated longest war in American history. The terrible consequences of the United States’ hasty military pullout after two decades of fighting are now clear.

The Washington Post reported, citing local media reports, that four of the five Taliban members released from Guantanamo Bay by the Obama administration in 2014 in exchange for admitted US Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl are now part of the Islamic fundamentalist group’s new hardline government in Afghanistan.
Acting Director of Intelligence Abdul Haq Wasiq, Acting Minister of Borders and Tribal Affairs Norullah Noori, Deputy Defense Minister Mohammad Fazl, and Acting Minister of Information and Culture Khairullah Khairkhah are the four members of the so-called ‘Taliban Five’ who have joined the new government. Mohammad Nabi Omari, the fifth member of the Taliban Five, has been named governor of eastern Khost province.
Meanwhile, America’s adversaries, such as China and Russia, are expanding their own spheres of influence. The symbolic culmination of Commander-in-Chief Joe Biden’s humiliation of the United States will take place on Saturday, when the Taliban will receive delegations from six countries to honor the formation of its government and commemorate the 20th anniversary of the US strikes.
“In terms of the War on Terror’s symbolism, the Taliban are organizing an interim government inauguration event on September 11th, the 20th anniversary of 9/11,” a former State Department official said.
China, Russia, Pakistan, Qatar, Iran, and Turkey have all been invited to the 9/11 inauguration. China has declined to comment on its offer, but its plans to expand its sphere of influence have begun in earnest, including efforts to assist with the control of the former US air base at Bagram.
According to U.S. News & World Report, China is considering sending military personnel and economic development officials to Bagram Airfield, which is perhaps the most visible emblem of the United States’ 20-year involvement in Afghanistan.
“I believe China will be likely to give human support if the Taliban wants it,” Sun continued. “Most likely, they’ll refer to it as technical or logistical assistance. There have been precedents in the past when it comes to foreign military bases. “However, a Chinese takeover seems improbable,” she says.
In a second article, U.S. President Biden acknowledged the worldwide embarrassment on Tuesday, stating that he was certain that ‘China would try to work out an arrangement with the Taliban.’
Biden asserted that China had a serious problem with the Taliban. “I’m sure they’ll try to work out some sort of deal with the Taliban. Pakistan, Russia, and Iran are all in the same boat. They’re all OK.
