IN THE #PRESS – Tuesday, August 31, 2021: Just under 20 years after the US invaded #Afghanistan, the #war ends “not with celebration but recrimination”, writes #USA Today. Recrimination abounds in the European press, with The Guardian noting “chaos and bloodshed” as the Americans withdraw, and French paper Le Figaro accusing the US of “abandoning” Kabul to the Taliban. Papers also fear for the “nightmare” future of Afghans under Taliban rule.
