Afghanistan

There could be approximately 10,000 Afghans held within Taliban controlled areas who helped UK and related agencies or were immediate family members of those who did and are currently being hunted down by the Taliban and their allies in Al Quada
The UK must develop a response to airlift these people out and the first step must be an air bridge to the Panjshir Valley.
We need a repeat of the Berlin Airlift to defend and assist this bastion of democratic values in a sea of sectarian religious autocratic brutality.
The Taliban’s pretence of inclusive governance and not providing a haven for international terrorists is exposed as a shame with Al Quada forces working with them on the current assaults on the Panjshir Valley.
The Taliban pledges to the USA are as misleading and illusionary as Hitler’s pledges to Neville Chamberlain.
