It’s not quite that bad for the Afghan forces. They have taken harder casualties than others up until recently. I imagine the abandonment is quite demoralising for them, since the States have been saying they won’t back them for some time. The Taliban were on the up, the Afghan National Army had no ardent backers. It would seem futile for many. And there has been little motivation for a proper sorting of the Afghan army for many years, so it’s no wonder they aren’t the best. Great weaponry can only last so long if they’re poorly trained and motivated.
