    And who is this, ISIS, the Taliban? What did they want, what did they achieve, is not clear from such news? Even the number of victims is different. Will we wait for details?

      What they wanted, what they achieved, is not clear
      The main thing is to keep the enemy in constant tension, and the population in fear. Although the Afghan population is not in my opinion this will not scare. They are born and die in a state of continuous war of all against all.

    To destabilize the situation, if others are in power, then the current ones will begin to partisan. And all this has been repeated for decades, and all this is implicated in drugs.
