When video aired on live news of Taliban fighters entering the presidential palace in Kabul it showed the tragic reality of what was to come for people living in that area. Naturally innocent citizens of Afghanistan are desperately trying to escape the country, which led to chaos at Kabul airport. The best way to describe the Kabul Airport stampede is too many people trying to run through a small door at once.
Viral footage shows the moment Afghanistan citizens rushed the last flight at Kabul Airport causing a very dangerous stampede situation. There were small children, and elderly individuals that could have easily gotten crushed from all the people running. Some videos show Afghanistan citizens climbing up guard rails at Kabul Airport to attempt sneaking onto the plane. The sad footage shows how desperate people are to leave that area after the Taliban took over.
A tweet from Andleeb Rana really put in perspective what was going on during the Kabul Airport stampede for the last airplane left. You had Afghanistan parents carrying their young children, and running towards the last flight at Kabul Airport hoping for a miracle to happen that would allow them to get a seat on the plane. In reality they never really had a chance to get on the plane, but the desperation to leave the country made them push forward anyway.
As videos like these continue to circulate on social media the fallout of the situation has began to put Joe Biden’s public perception in jeopardy. For example “Biden Remorse” started trending on Twitter as some people who voted for him started to regret their decision. More and more people are placing some the blame of suffering going on in Afghanistan on his shoulders as president of the US.
