Ever since our flight from Kabul the Biden administration has attempted to portray the Taliban as a new, changed entity. This is Taliban 2.0. Kinder. Gentler. Businesslike. Unfortunately, as with most pronouncements by this administration, all of this is a lie. The Taliban have not changed. They paused momentarily in imposing their barbaric measures on the populace in order to take advantage of the weakness of the West. Now that they believe the world is watching other horrors, they have begun to impose the measures that will create their bizarre 6th-century vision of hell.
Will cell phones for women be banned? If all of the above is being reinstituted, Id imagine all those barbaric punishments for offenders will also be used.
