Afghans Are Facing The Deadliest Taliban Yet | VICE on HBO

14552 ratings | 1182579 views
After more than 16 years of war, Afghan civilians live each day under constant threat, as U.S. forces and the Afghan government struggle to secure the country. Despite hundreds of billions of dollars spent on the war since 2001, U.S. goals are far from within reach. Meanwhile, the Taliban has never been stronger, controlling more land than ever before and establishing footholds in nearly every province in Afghanistan. President Donald Trump has vowed to undo some of the terror group’s grip on the country and force it back to the negotiating table. But his new strategy, which centers on thousands of additional U.S. troops and an intensification of airstrikes, has only just begun to produce gains. The Taliban, facing renewed pressure, have increased terror attacks on major cities, striking at the heart of Kabul recently, in a series of devastating attacks that left hundreds of civilians dead in the span of a week. VICE’s Ben Anderson travelled to Afghanistan in October 2016 as the Taliban were on the verge of retaking Helmand Province, once a crucial territory in the U.S. war. Reconnecting with families he’d visited years earlier, he saw just how little has been done to contain the Taliban’s influence across the country’s rural landscape, and the challenges that await Afghan and U.S. forces.

Brave Afghan men..God bless them all...One day the Taliban and these men will sit and decide to give a hand to each other and the cia will be in trouble..As they are indirectly fueling the conflict and the Taliban itself,so the US have a reason to stay in Afghanistan longer..

I’ve seen hundreds of documentaries about the different conflicts going on around the Middle East but this one shook me down to my core. I wish the Afghan soldiers, displaced civilians and fighters the very best, I praise you all for standing up against these mother fuckers. My thoughts are with you. God bless.

If the Afghan National army had a couple thousand more warriors like the man depicted in this video they would be far better off. I respect the amount of patriotism he has for his nation and the aggressive stance on defeating taliban. Afghanistan needs more men like him. True hero of his people

Without external influence Taliban won't come back again... Pakistan which lost its Sphere after fall of Taliban.. Afghanistans govt is close to India so Pakistan playing this dirty war. Or its US.. After Isis they want another enemy just to help their arm dealer to deal with Taliban illegally and to show world that War on Terror not over and justify their military budget. Or its China which is eager to become world super power and control central Asia with the help of Pakistan. But poor Afghan they are suffering decade after decade
