    After 20 years of war in Afghanistan, U.S. President Joe Biden said it’s finally time to bring American troops home. The U.S. military estimated that it has completed more than half of its withdrawal, and the remainder are expected to depart by September 11.

    But, the withdrawal of the U.S. troops has sparked fears that Afghanistan’s civil war could intensify and spiral out of control. A UN report released this month warned the Taliban are strengthening their military posture in Afghanistan. Civilians have been killed in a string of attacks since May 1, when the United States formally began its withdrawal. So, as violence continues, what is the future for the war-torn country?
