Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Afghanistan: what has endless war achieved?” – below is their description.

So after the endless war, what was it good for?

All the Afghan, British and American lives lost and the decades spent bogged down in the conflict.

Now the speed of the allies’ hasty retreat is matched only by the Taliban offensive, as city after city falls to their control.

And that’s unlikely to end well.
