Taliban throws victory parade with US military equipment
The Taliban are now brazenly showing off the US military equipment — including Black Hawk helicopters, dozens of armored vehicles and weapons — abandoned by US troops amid President Biden’s chaotic final exit from Afghanistan.
Islamist fighters staged victory parades Wednesday in Kandahar, Afghanistan’s second-biggest city, as they showed off the US military hardware they’ve now seized.
Videos showed heavily-armed Taliban fighters standing on top of a long line of captured Humvees and other tactical vehicles, as they drove along a highway.
In embarrassing scenes for the US, a Black Hawk helicopter even flew circles overhead.
Many Taliban militants could be also seen cradling American M16 rifles and other weapons used by US, NATO and Afghan forces during the 20-year war.
