- Afghanistan after the fall of Kabul: Is the war over? // by Alan Woods
  In Defense of Marxism  15 November 2001
In less than a week, Taliban forces have been swept from most of northern Afghanistan, including the key cities of Mazar-e-Sharif, Herat, Kunduz, Taloqan, Bamiyan, Jalalabad and the capital Kabul. The question is: How did a force that only two months ago controlled most of Afghanistan get swept
from the battlefield so quickly, and is the battle over?

On The Brink // by Alan Woods
