-Afghanistan-Taliban Situation

In 2001, United States’ former president George W. Bush signed into law a joint resolution authorizing the use of force against those responsible for attacking the United States on 9/11. Right after the joint resolution, The U.S. military, with British support, began a bombing campaign against Taliban forces, officially launching Operation Enduring Freedom. Since then,the tension never dropped in the region. After 20 years, the United States of America declared that the longest war of the US has come to an end. Withdrawal of the American forces took approximately 2 weeks, leaving Afghanistan under complete Taliban ruling. Today, the Taliban has complete control of Afghanistan. However the future of the region is still too unpredictable.
