Taliban go from rebel to ruler in Afghanistan

  • Taliban complete their territorial sweep in Afghanistan as military melts away in Kabul, Ghani flees, government resigns

  • We expect China, Pakistan, and Russia to engage with the new government but the US and India to view it as illegitimate

  • Remains to be seen if Taliban have full control of state and security and whether they seek revenge or reconciliation
