Afghanistan is Dead — It’s Time To Defend Kabul

Afghanistan as of August 10, 2021 — source: Islamic News Network. Pink areas are a few major cities like Kabul and Mazar i Sharif where the government forces are still holding. All the grey is controlled by the Taliban — nearly all of Afghanistan’s borders.
ISWNews.com alternate version of the current situation. Here’s their Interactive Map
  1. An international military force enters Kabul and secures the region around it with the support of local allies, including the remnants of the national government.
  2. It commits to staying for three years before withdrawing and handing over defense responsibilities to a new and well-equipped Kabul-focused defense force built up from the Afghan Commandos
  3. Massive international investment flows in to build businesses and infrastructure — solar panels, green manufacturing, the kinds of things that can make Kabul economically self-sustaining
  4. A new decentralized democratic government is empowered to evade the chronic corruption pervading the Afghan national government, supported directly by the United Nations
  5. Any Taliban attempts to build up military forces near the secure region are decisively defeated. Once oppressed groups begin to rebel, they can be supported until their territory is clear of Taliban
  6. A new secure, independent region is established, replicating the process until the territory of Afghanistan is split into a series of largely-independent city states. These may then confederate peacefully
