Angelina Jolie

Reacting to the turn of events, American actress Angelina Jolie has expressed her anger over the decision of the US to send back its troops from Afghanistan. It’s because the decision of the American government has led to the Afghan government failing under pressure to the Taliban.

This is what the actress wrote, “Whatever your views on the war in Afghanistan, we probably agree on one thing: it should not have ended this way,” she wrote.

She further added, “Giving up the idea of a peace agreement between the Afghan government and the Taliban, appearing to cut and run, and abandoning our allies and supporters in the most chaotic way imaginable, after so many years of effort and sacrifice, is a betrayal and failure impossible to fully understand.” Jolie added.

Jolie has recently completed her humanitarian work where she has represented the US government as a Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. In her latest interaction, the actress has stated that she feels ashamed of the departure of US’s troops from Afghanistan.



This is what she wrote, “After all the bloodshed and effort and sacrifice and time, America seems to have lacked the will to plan this transition in a managed way. It was never going to be easy or perfect but could have been better, more decent and safer.”

“As an American I am ashamed by the manner of our leaving. It diminishes us.” Jolie added.

The actress is also so much concerned about the safety of women in Afghanistan. And so, she explained, “We have lost leverage to influence what now happens in Afghanistan.”

The actress also added, “We lack a strategy to monitor and support women and civil society in Afghanistan, who the Taliban have a history of targeting – banning girls from school, confining women to the home, and inflicting brutal physical punishments, including public lashing, on any woman perceived to have stepped out of line.”

The American actress stated that the withdrawal of army from Afghanistan is going to create a new refugee crisis. She said, “a new refugee crisis, on top of record global displacement, with nearly a quarter of a million Afghans displaced within the country since May 80 per cent of them women and girls.” Jolie concluded.
