Dear MEL Topic Readers,
Timeline: How September 11, 2001 led to US’s longest war
After the deadliest 9.11 terrorist attacks in 2001, the US was heavily involved in Afghanistan and Iraq, including military operations, political intervention, and financial aids. More lives of civilians, insurgents, and security forces were lost over the course of the last twenty years than the lives lost in the attacks. And the hastened retreat of the US and allied forces prompted the collapse of the US-installed Afghan government and US-trained security forces. US Intelligence failed to prove the weapon of mass destruction in Iraq and forecast the velocity of the Taliban’s advancement or vulnerability of the Afghanistan government. What does remain after the US withdrawal from Afghanistan besides corpses?
Read the timeline that shows what the US has done since the 9.11 terrorist attacks and think what the lives of Afghans are and will be like.
