Lithium, don't forget the lithium. Next big thing, innit. Moscow and Beijing will be first in there cozying-up to the Talebs with favourable terms, including advanced weaponry and other military resources. Gazprom, National Petroleum Corp. no doubt wanting to exploit Afghanistans gas resources too.

It's all in the game...

The lunatics will want to give the retreating West a bloody nose before they leave. It's too good a chance to miss and this was inevitable. It could only be the start. Might be an excuse though for the West to really take the gloves off this time and firmer leadership to take over.

And now no air-traffic up to 25,000 ft. This might be significant if a military response is forth-coming. Would Old Joe order one? Hardly a good idea at this stage with so many foreign nationals still in country. Something's gonna give if it hasn't already...

At least 73 dead including 13 US troops after attacks outside Kabul Airport, Islamic State claiming responsibility via social media.

That's gonna be the problem, some undesirables attempting to leave Afghanistan have been identified and dealt with before getting on transport or after arrival at destination. The transit centres will hopefully identify others and detain suspicious individuals through DNA, iris identification and intelligence on the ground.

Identifying potential jihadists is problematic when, as proscribed in the a-hadiths (supposedly the true and spoken words of the prophet, that is should he have existed at all) that "war is deceit," a practice first espoused by a Chinese warlord whose name escapes me. The instruction encourages true-believers in Islamic doctrine to "show many faces." A perfect example of this tactic can be seen with the actions of Usman Khan, the Fishmongers Hall jihadist who 'pretended' to be deradicalised and deceived the trust of his mentors which culminated in his stabbing to death the two people who had helped him through the programme. Rightly shot to death by an ARU officer. If I remember correctly one or more of the 7/7 bombers had also been through a deradicalisation programme.

This ideological motivation has no face or other outwardly identifiable markers so can never be completely defeated. The kind of motivation that instructs its adherents to indiscriminately take innocent lives in the name of its god and the outpourings of a desert prophet adds a new dimension to the term psychopathia. Parts of Africa are increasingly succumbing to this deadly incarnation of (predominantly sunni) islam, the summary execution of adherents of other sects by islamic supremacists being commonplace daily, subjugation and power being their goal. Happening in Afghanistan now.

Wasn’t that part of one of those future prediction type stories? The UK is taken over and eventually becomes an Islamic country?

It's not impossible that Islam would become the major religion, we are a nation of heathens after all.

If any moral duty is needed, then it is to give them financial assistance where the pound buys more goods and resources to a safe country near them and where they are aware of the customs and language.

What military operations did the Manx undertake in Afghanistan?

Anything else would create issues in our society and hear that we have enough problems on our plate dealing with the homeless as it is.

The Bishop is compelled by his office to come up with that kind of plea. Will he offer safety and succour at the bishopric by housing a family of 7 perhaps? And eventually other family members in the chain. Pay for an interpreter, organise their healthcare, schooling, feed and clothe them, maybe find them a job? Psalms 91:1-4 for guidance, or proverbs 19:17 (NIV) perhaps? Providing food and shelter brings divinity before god you know, makes one a shining beacon of virtuosity and righteousness for all to see. It's all there in the good book.

The road to hell is paved with good intention.

Amen.
