Blinken: Taliban must uphold commitments to international community

( If you thought the suicide bombings in Kabul and the many innocent people murdered by Jihadists in Afghanistan following President Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from the country might have been enough to make the White House think again about its approach to the Taliban, then think again.

On Friday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken re-emphasized the Biden administration’s expectation that any new government led by the Taliban in Afghanistan will maintain its commitments to the international community – something that no reasonable person should expect at this point.

Taliban spokespeople have already told the world that their new government will respect the rights of women, but their actions have been quite different.

Blinken said that commitments made by the Taliban, which including respecting rights for women and minorities as well as countering terrorism and maintaining freedom to travel, will be expected to be upheld in the future. During a press briefing, Blinken said that the State Department is looking at the actions and policies of the new Afghanistan government, and said they have “expectations” that that new government will demonstrate “real inclusivity.”

If they think allowing women to work and go to school as long as they wear a hijab is “real inclusivity,” then how do they square that with the Democrats’ constant claims that America is a fundamentally and systemically racist country?

Blinken added that the main priority for the White House right now is ensuring that the Taliban follows through on those promises, and that they hope to see Jihadist extremists “make good” on those promises.

It comes as the U.S. government announced that some 124,000 people have been evacuated from Afghanistan – most of which were Afghans. Roughly 100 Americans remain stranded in Afghanistan, and most people do not expect those Americans to be able to safely travel through the country to escape.

For some reason, though, Biden thinks that Taliban might start playing nice.
