The Afghan game backfired, All of its players are hopeless now

Hyderabad: 3 November 2021: As is clear from the statements of various current and former officials in the US, Pakistan is in Washington’s crosshairs for a number of reasons.
The humiliating US withdrawal from Afghanistan is probably the foremost among them. These officials point a finger at Pakistan for helping the Afghan Taliban gain control of the country. Pakistan of course has solid reasons to rubbish such claims, especially given the fact that it is the US that first initiated a dialogue with the Taliban in Doha and then signed an agreement with them. If anyone has legitimized the Taliban, it is Washington itself.
Twenty Year War Ends as U.S. Completes Withdrawal: The last U.S. military forces depart Afghanistan, leaving it under Taliban rule. The exit follows a chaotic, two-week withdrawal process during which more than 120,000 people are evacuated. The next day, President Biden says the United States should learn from its mistakes and that the withdrawal marks the end of “an era of major military operations to remake other countries.” Thousands of Afghans who assisted the United States and its allies, as well as up to two hundred Americans, remain in Afghanistan. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken says Washington will work to get them out and that future U.S. engagement in Afghanistan will focus on diplomacy.
