For most of us it is impossible to fully comprehend the terror that the ordinary people of Afghanistan are now feeling. Their lives were pretty grim before the USA, with the full backing of the UK government, decided to vanish and leave them to their fate.
Now the Afghan people wait to see what the reality of Taliban rule will be.
