Former UK army chief says Taliban has prevailed in Afghanistan

As Nato troops withdraw, Lord Dannatt says the country could descend into civil war

The Taliban has prevailed in the war in Afghanistan, the former head of the British Army has said.

As the last US troops pull out of the country, Richard Dannatt, a member of the House of Lords and the professional head of the army from 2006 to 2009, said chaos was likely to ensue once the 20-year Nato presence comes to an end.

US troops left their biggest airbase in Afghanistan on Friday as Bagram Air Base was handed over to local forces.

Britain is in the process of withdrawing its last 1,000 troops from the country.

“Tragically, a descent into the chaos of civil war seems highly likely,” Mr Dannatt wrote in an article for the Daily Telegraph.

“Ultimately, Taliban force of arms has prevailed, and the people of that country have been denied the chance to choose a better way of life.”

He said Afghan forces had “seemingly lost the will to fight” when no longer backed by foreign air power.

US President Joe Biden announced in April that all US troops would be withdrawn by September 11, the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

“Afghans are going to have to decide their future, what they want,” Mr Biden said last week.

The White House says it will continue to provide Afghanistan’s government with financial support and medical and humanitarian assistance.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson promised that Britain would “use the full spectrum of our diplomatic, development and defence work” to support Afghanistan.

Mr Dannatt called for an audit of Britain’s involvement similar to the seven-year Chilcot Inquiry into the war in Iraq.

After the invasion in October 2001, 454 British personnel died in Afghanistan.

The operation destroyed ten narcotic manufacturing facilities, and as well as the opium, it netted 220 kg of morphine, more than 100 kg of heroin and 148 kg of cannabis.(AP Photo/Corporal Rupert Frere, Ministry of Defence, ho)  **EDITORIAL USE ONLY**

Fighting continues between Afghan forces and the Taliban, who have made a series of advances in the past two months.

A batch of defence papers that were found by a member of the public at an English bus stop revealed UK concerns over instability in the country.

The papers, which were handed to the BBC, included discussions between officials on whether Britain would maintain a residual presence in Afghanistan.

The reduced presence of Nato forces "is already impairing the situational awareness that we [and the US] used to enjoy across the country", they said.

"Any UK footprint in Afghanistan that persists … is assessed to be vulnerable to targeting by a complex network of actors.”

A senior US official said on Thursday that an ISIS affiliate operating in Afghanistan could regain strength if the government in Kabul collapses.

ISIS-Khorasan, also known as IS-K, has fought against US and Afghan forces and carried out a string of suicide attacks.

In 2017, the US military dropped the “Mother Of All Bombs” – its largest non-nuclear weapon yet used in combat – on the group.

So what is Spicy Chickenjoy?

Just as McDonald’s has the Big Mac, Jollibee has Spicy Chickenjoy – a piece of fried chicken that’s crispy and spicy on the outside and comes with a side of spaghetti, all covered in tomato sauce and topped with sausage slices and ground beef. It sounds like a recipe that a child would come up with, but perhaps that’s the point – a flavourbomb combination of cheap comfort foods. Chickenjoy is Jollibee’s best-selling product in every country in which it has a presence.

Teachers' pay - what you need to know

Pay varies significantly depending on the school, its rating and the curriculum. Here's a rough guide as of January 2021:

- top end schools tend to pay Dh16,000-17,000 a month - plus a monthly housing allowance of up to Dh6,000. These tend to be British curriculum schools rated 'outstanding' or 'very good', followed by American schools

- average salary across curriculums and skill levels is about Dh10,000, recruiters say

- it is becoming more common for schools to provide accommodation, sometimes in an apartment block with other teachers, rather than hand teachers a cash housing allowance

- some strong performing schools have cut back on salaries since the pandemic began, sometimes offering Dh16,000 including the housing allowance, which reflects the slump in rental costs, and sheer demand for jobs

- maths and science teachers are most in demand and some schools will pay up to Dh3,000 more than other teachers in recognition of their technical skills

- at the other end of the market, teachers in some Indian schools, where fees are lower and competition among applicants is intense, can be paid as low as Dh3,000 per month
