Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie has made a big statement about the American soldier. Actress-filmmaker Angelina has expressed anger over the decision to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan. With the withdrawal of US army, the Afghan government has come into the hands of the Taliban.
Angelina Jolie recently told a media agency that whatever your views on the war in Afghanistan, we probably agree on one thing. It shouldn’t have ended like this. She further said that it was not appropriate to give up on the idea of a peace deal between the Afghan government and the Taliban and leave our allies and supporters in such a chaotic manner to cut and run.
It is a fantasy after so many years of effort and sacrifice. It is impossible to fully understand betrayal and failure. Jolie, who completed humanitarian work as a special envoy to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, says she is embarrassed by the way her country has left and feels that the events in Afghanistan have brought the United States down in glory, according to a media report.
Jolie says “I am ashamed of my country’s manner of departure and feels the US has been “diminished” by the events in Afghanistan”. The 46-year-old actress is also concerned about women in Afghanistan as the Taliban are notorious for mistreating women. Angelina Jolie explained that what is happening in Afghanistan now is very sad and wrong.
We lack a strategy to monitor and support women and civil society in Afghanistan. Those the Taliban are targeting, such as banning girls from school, confining women to home and inflicting brutal corporal punishment, including whipping any woman in public.
Along with this, the actress said that the return from Afghanistan has created a new refugee crisis. With a record global displacement, nearly a quarter million Afghans have been displaced within the country since May, 80 percent of whom are women and girls.
