KABUL: Days of using AK47s are over. The Taliban now holds US Green Beret issued M4 carbines. The US Republican Congressman Jim Banks confirmed that the Taliban had gained control over the US military equipment with Black Hawk choppers.
He said; due to the negligence of this administration, the Taliban now have access to $85 billion worth of military equipment. It is a concert as the Taliban now controls Afghanistan with arms and ammunition, not to forget that China will keep funding them. It will become easier for China to sponsor both Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Ironically, the equipment was supposed to be for the Afghanistan forces and prevent the Taliban from any attack, now possesses the arsenal. The US issued the Green Berets to Afghanistan only, not to mention it was denied to the UK since the weapons are more clear and well maintained.
The Taliban is not the same as it used to be in the 1990s, their transformation from nothing to having their force is a matter of grave concern for the world.
