Afghanistan reeling from the 9/11 attacks consequences, says analysts

KABUL (SW) – On the occasion of the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the US, analysts believe Afghanistan suffered immensely due to these attacks and the following events.

Najib al-Rahman Shamal, political analyst, has said that the consequences of the 9/11 attacks attack on Afghanistan were harmful and created a crisis.

He adds: “These attacks on the towers in the US prepared the ground for America’s attack on Afghanistan under the pretext of fighting terrorism, and then, along with with the US, more than 40 NATO member countries attacked Afghanistan.”

General Frank Kenneth McKenzie, the former commander of the Central Command of the United States Army (CENTCOM), who oversaw the withdrawal of the United States and the fall of the republic in Afghanistan during his mission in this position, has called the withdrawal of the United States a fatal mistake.

In an interview with Fox News, he said: “I have many regrets about how our military presence in Afghanistan ended. I regret the initial decision to leave; Because I think it was a wrong decision.”

As the 22nd anniversary of the bloody attacks of the Al-Qaeda network on New York is coming, while here in Afghanistan, history has turned back again and the force has been in power in the country for two years, which, according to the American interpretation, sheltered the perpetrators of this attack.

On the other hand, some experts in political issues believe the US used the issue of September 11th attack as an excuse to interfere in Afghanistan’s affairs and pursue its goals in the country.

They emphasized that after this attack and the US military entry into Afghanistan, global security has not only improved, it has become worse.

Weis Naseri, another expert on political issues, told Salaam Watandar about this: “September 11th was the beginning of a major change in the world’s security perspective, but after 22 years, the world is more vulnerable to terror than in 2001.”

In addition to this, the world now believes that terrorist threats from Afghanistan are still a serious issue, something that the Islamic Emirate has rejected.
