US commander warns of worse violence in Afghanistan when American troops leave – BBC News

Published

on



America’s longest-serving commander in Afghanistan says he expects Taliban violence to get worse, as US-led forces withdraw from the country over the coming months.

President Biden has said that all US troops will leave the country by September 2021, ending a deployment that’s lasted 20 years.

Recent violence has included a bomb attack outside a school in Kabul in which dozens of schoolgirls were killed.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting from Kabul by chief international correspondent Lyse Doucet.

    Watching this again I could see the pain and grief more clearly not only in the Afghanistan people but in General Austin Scott Miller I've never really understood war but being a woman I know what hurt is. One thing I've always heard do your best and when you've done that that's all you can do . I believe strongly in God and General Austin Scott Miller did more than his best. You will always be remembered now and in history you are a fine, honest, caring man . I know God will always be with you. You have a big heart.

    it is not only a mistake but a huge blunder, USA has unfortunately committed having decided to leave Afghanistan like an orphan. i feel they could wait longer, train Afghanistan army better to fight against terrorists and then leave them. Now it is like finding oneself in the middle of nowhere. it is just shocking.

    Well hey Afghans want us gone and theyve been calling for it for years, now we are gone and as a result EVERYONE wants a passport out because they are afraid of the taliban. Didnt think that before? "We are better off with taliban rule" was a phrase i heard very often the last 2 years. Welp HERE YA GO!!! DONT RUN! STAY AND LIVE UNDER MURDEROUS, I MEAN TALIBAN RULE like youve been sayin is such a utopia

    Your turn rest of the world. These were just kids who were brainwashed into fighting a war thinking they are making a better world. Does no one learn anything from history? Yall remember Vietnam right? Its this cute little country. Maybe the government will start spending our tax money on good things now…I highly doubt it though unfortunately

    Scoot you knew what will happen when US troops leave Afghanistan and the Taliban is making chaos and kill the people, so not much different with Mujahidin collaborated with US to kick off the Soviet out of Afghanistan.The war hasn't finished yet after long period of time without success but fail. Should learn from during Vietnam war. And I hope there is no more war again and learn how to make a peace with your enemy even you don't like it. Shalom.

    After US withdrew from Vietnam in August 73 the NVA captured Saigon in April 75 thats 20 months. After US withdrew from Iraq in December 2011 Isis deadly took Baghdad in Summer of 2014 thats aprox. 30 months. If Us leave Afghanistan in September 2021, Taliban will reach Kabul around the Summer/Fall 2023. My opinion

Cyclone Idai: Flying over flooded Mozambique – BBC News

Published

on



As Mozambique counts the cost of Cyclone Idai, the BBC’s Africa editor Fergal Keane joined a helicopter flight over some of the worst-affected areas.

The pilot pointed towards the east across the expanse of brown water. “We are 15 miles from the sea,” he said, “but it feels as if we are right over it.” He was right. Below us, farmland that had been home to thousands of people had disappeared.

Charities say thousands of people are stranded by catastrophic flooding, clinging to roofs or stuck in trees.

About 300 people are confirmed dead in Mozambique and Zimbabwe, but the toll is expected to rise.

Killer whale hunts and eats great white shark | BBC News

Published

on



A solitary killer whale, or orca, has been filmed hunting and killing a great white shark in an “astonishing” attack off the coast of South Africa.

Scientists said it was “unprecedented” and showed the exceptional predatory skills of killer whales.

Two orcas in particular off South Africa’s coast have been observed before working together to hunt and kill sharks, including great whites.

Dr Alison Towner, a marine biologist from Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa, led the study.

“This caught us off guard,” said shark biologist Dr Towner.
