Since the U.S. had no plans to state build/provide the Afghan people with the tools to build their country, this chaos that we're seeing in Kabul was inevitable.

Unsurprisingly, Russia is actively trying to fill the gaping hole with the Taliban that the U.S. is abandoning, which is to be a dangerous precedent, long-term. https://www.reuters.com/world/asia-pacific/russia-will-evacuate-some-embassy-staff-afghanistan-official-2021-08-16/

I'm curious why the idea of our world moving in a multipolar direction directly implicates chaotic and tragic events such as the one in Kabul. Are we implying that the rise of new powers means chaos and violent events? What do we think Russia or China's agenda is with Afghanistan? Are we implying they might be in the business of nation-building in Afghanistan? Why kind of relationship would they want with the Taliban?

Is everyone's end goal to see the decline of U.S.'s power? So many questions!
