For 20 years, the United States has invested almost 90 billion dollars in the development of the Afghan army, but left as losers - just as the USSR left. The civil war continues, "democracy" has not taken root, a peaceful life is a distant prospect. The new inhabitants of the presidential palace promise not to commit genocide and assure that they are not the same as in the 90s. But nobody believes their words. Why has Afghanistan turned into a Taliban republic again and how will the lives of ordinary Afghans now change? Why should we be worried about what is happening in this distant country?
