Hostage Fears For British & Afghan Allies Left At The Mercy Of Taliban & Isis-K by Gospelpreacher1: 12:54pm On Aug 28
TRAPPED IN HELL : BRITAIN faces the "biggest hostage crisis ever" after leaving over 1,000 Afghan allies to the mercy of the Taliban and ISIS-K, ministers were warned last night.

The chilling warning came as Boris Johnson said he felt a "great sense of regret" about those left behind and vowed to "shift heaven and earth" to get people out of Afghanistan after the August 31 deadline.

Britain has so far evacuated more than 14,500 Afghan and UK nationals as thousands of people have gathered at Kabul airport over the past 12 days hoping to be rescued after the Taliban seized power.

But up to 150 British citizens and 1,100 Afghan aides are set to miss the final airlifts out after the doors were slammed shut.

Security sources now fear the Taliban, or the terror group ISIS-K, could capture vulnerable Afghans or UK citizens and demand a ransom.


MP Tom Tugendhat, chair of the foreign affairs select committee, said Afghan allies are "literally in fear of their lives" after being left behind.

He told Sky News: "There's a possibility we may find ourselves with the biggest hostage crisis the UK has ever seen.

Foreign troops are due to leave the war-torn country by Tuesday at the latest after nearly 20 years of conflict.

On Friday night, the UK government even appeared to have deleted the official Twitter account for the embassy in Afghanistan after two decades of war.

But Boris Johnson has said he will "shift heaven and earth" to get people out of Afghanistan after the deadline as he confirmed three British deaths in the "contemptible" suicide bomb blast at the airport on Thursday.

The Prime Minister said he felt "a great sense of regret" about those left behind, as the evacuation process enters its final stages.

'SHIFT HEAVEN AND EARTH'
The PM added: "Of course, as we come down to the final hours of the operation there will sadly be people who haven't got through, people who might qualify.

"What I would say to them is that we will shift heaven and earth to help them get out, we will do whatever we can in the second phase."

Thirteen US troops and dozens of Afghans were among those killed in a terror attack at Kabul airport.

A young British girl is missing after the attack as her dad was named tonight as one of the 170 victims.

The attack made for America's deadliest day in Afghanistan for 10 years - and Republicans claimed US President Joe Biden had "blood on his hands".

On Friday, the Pentagon said the attack involved only one location and not two as previously reported.

The Pentagon said there was one ISIS suicide bomber, who struck at the Abbey Gate, where desperate Afghans were crowding to try and enter the airport and where US troops were carrying out security checks.

The thing is, all them Afghans fleeing, they should have stayed behind and fought for the kind of Afghanistan they want.

But it seems more Afghans are interested in surviving than in working for better change

When Afghans are ready to take back their Country, they would descend on Taliban with whichever weapon they can lay their hands on. How can less than five percent of the Population be causing so much sorrow and pain?

This Afghan impasse has made USA and UK lose all the respect they have in the committee of nations. . .

Same Buhari government made Nigeria lost all its respect in Africa.

Islamabad

The Christian nations that bombed and manipulated governments in the region for years are what?

Iran might have been a secular nation by now if Christian America had not manipulated the Shah to wreck the secular opposition.

That left the religious fundamentalists as the legit opposition. And indirectly led to groups like the Taliban

There is no one source of evil in the world. The Romans were not Muslims. Yet they killed and enslaved millions.

Evacuating some headslammers first nd leaving ur citizens behind doesn't make sense. Ur citizens shuld b ur priority, evacuate ur citizens then proceed to evacuating any afgans u chose to.


I keep wondering wat Biden was tinkin. I expected a gradual withrawal of us troops, why the sudden rush? A gradual withrawal wuld hv forestall this brouhaha.

One man's lack of efficenct strategy has caused chaos across nations.

The Democrats doctrine:
1. Reverse Trump policies.
2. America last
3. When it inevitably leads to worse results, blame it on Trump.

Is it also Trump that is responsible for the Southern border crisis?

Meanwhile Kamala Harris is busy talking about buying Christmas presents early.

The sad reality with this Afghan situation is that nobody knows what the future holds for the innocent civilians Afghanistan especially the ones who aided the US and NATO forces during the 20-year long siege.
The biggest fear right now is the possibility of shooting down a military plane at the airport which may culminate into a deadly retaliatory move from US which will send Afghanistan into its worst humanitarian crises in centuries
