With the fall of Kabul and ousting of the Ashraf Ghani-led Afghan government by the Taliban on Aug 16, 2021, America’s longest war and 2 decades of efforts to build a democratic, secular Afghanistan collapsed within a few weeks.
Power changing hands in Afghanistan has been significant historically for global sovereigns, be it during the era of the Cold War, post-9/11, or further back when the Emirate of Afghanistan was invaded by the British, forming a major chapter of the ‘Great Game’.
The current collapse of the Afghan government and the subsequent departure of the US troops has created a yawning power vacuum with multifaceted consequences for global politics.
