Taliban Parade U.S.-Made Military Hardware as Refugees Gather at Afghanistans Borders

In Afghanistan, the Taliban celebrated its victory over the United States and itsNATOallies with a military parade in Kandahar Wednesday that featured dozens of U.S.-made armored vehicles and a Black Hawk helicopter. Just days after the last U.S. military transport plane left Kabuls airport, the Biden administration said its exploring ways to evacuate hundreds of remaining U.S. citizens and tens of thousands of Afghan allies, including by land routes. Thousands of refugees have gathered at the border with Pakistan, overwhelming local resources. Those whove been able to cross are begging for international aid.

Afghan refugee: We are 150 families. It was tough for us to cross the border. We were very oppressed, and many families are stranded there. We were unemployed and hungry. We migrated here because of poverty. And we have to be helped, because we dont have tents and food. We have nothing. Have mercy on us.

Meanwhile, U.S. General Mark Milley, chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters Wednesday it is possible the United States will coordinate with the Taliban in the fight against the Islamic State.
