    Never mind the Humvees - I just want to sit back and watch the buggers attempt to fly the numerous helicopters and planes left behind too That would make for a fun 30 second video !

    * edit - since typing this post it seems that THAT is EXACTLY what they've been doing, whilst allegedly hanging an American underneath it - the last part re them being American being unconfirmed by the way!!!

    Mind you considering that the Russians and / or Chinese are probably already on with them as we speak offering them genuine US instruction flight manuals and parts by the box load, complete with men to train them in how to fit them too for that matter, all simply to piss the Americans off and get "in" with the Taliban, perhaps they'll all not be THAT useless as we're all being told after all perhaps !

    Saying that, the Americans have said clearly that they've ensured that nothing left behind will EVER fly again.......but I guess they WOULD say that wouldn't they :-)

    The Taliban are basically a game of Paintball that got badly out of hand.

    If these were vehicles which had to be left behind they retreated they should have done the same as the British did when they withdrew from Aden.

    I read that they left grenades in the fuel tanks and attached to the fuel filler cap which were triggered when the cap was removed.

    Hopefully this happened in a petrol station so it also took out the garage as well as the Land Rover.

    From what the news is saying, it appears the US wants an alliance and cooperation with the Taliban, with not much interest in keeping them an enemy.

    Hopefully this doesn't come back to bite the US ala another 9/11 all over or worst.

    Those Blackhawk helicopters need complicated on-going maintenance using specialised spare parts. They will be totally useless within a month or so unless the Taliban are able to get help from somewhere.

    I read that most have been disabled in some way and will not fly again. Time will tell if that's true.

    The unit's left behind, yep they'll probably not fly again......it'll will no douby be the NEW ones that the Americans end up SELLING the new Taliban govt, complete with parts and crew to fix them - all "to help the Taliban defeat ISIS and join the axis of the good guys again" that will be the ones that will enable them to fly again.

    All paid for with a massive "lets help get you going again LOAN' from the US of course too - before China nips in and offers that on great terms too no doubt !

    China is already muttering about official recognising the Talibal government. I suppose if you're that unpopular any friend is better than none. Eh stevie???

    Incidentally...'humiliation' Really!!!
    A bit like the cleaners arriving at the party venue but the guests continued to make more and more mess so the cleaners just left.
