Say what you will about their being a bunch of 9th century thugs

They are not stupid and they have studied our culture very well. London Daily Mail:

Taliban soldiers wearing U.S.-made gear mock iconic World War II image of Marines raising flag on Iwo Jima in 1945 and release propaganda footage showing them armed with American weapons while on patrol in Afghanistan

    • The Taliban's Badri 313 Battalion released a collection of propaganda footage this past week
    • Among the collection was the recreation of the famed 1945 World War II picture of soldiers raising the American flag during the Battle of Iwo Jima
    • In the Taliban version, a group of soldiers is seen hoisting the Taliban flag in a similar fashion while sporting U.S. weapons and gear
    • The Badri 313 is a special unit of Taliban fighters that dress like U.S. soldiers by wearing camouflage, combat boots and body armor
    • Analysts expect the unit to continue to grow in the next few months

A group of Taliban fighters released a collection of propaganda footage, including a photo where they mocked the famed World War II picture of soldiers raising the American flag on Iwo Jima.

In the original 1945 photograph, a group of six Marines are depicted hosting the flag on Mount Suribachi.

The Taliban's Badri 313 Battalion recreated the image this week.

In their version, a group of soldiers is seen hoisting the Taliban flag in a similar fashion while sporting U.S. weapons and gear that was likely stolen from allied militaries during patrols of Kabul.

That is a big fucking finger in the eye of everyone who has served in the military. That these goblins think that they defeated us.  We were betrayed by the current administration's incompetence and stupidity.

Their desire to be the opposite of President Trump prevented them from even considering that his plan for withdrawal was a well-ordered and logical plan. Their random pull-out caused this catastrophe. They own this disaster.
