As the Taliban captured Afghanistan, families of soldiers who martyred, and retired army men, have been left asking what their efforts were for.
Afghanistan is currently being taken by the Taliban, 20 years after the fundamentalist group was expelled from power by a US-drove military alliance.
The alliance incorporated the British Army and saw 457 British lives lost and £22billion ($30 Billion) spent.
Recently, the Taliban captured the nation’s capital, Kabul, and it is presently expected that the nation will fall under severe Sharia Law, with the efforts of British warriors to no end.
Jack Cummings, a veteran who lost two of his legs in 2010 in Afghanistan, tweeted: “Was it worth it, probably not. Did I lose my legs for nothing, looks like it. Did my mates die in vain. Yep.”
He further added: “Many emotions going through my head, anger, betrayal sadness to name a few…. All I can do is keep positive, positive I’m a alive when 454 didn’t make it home.
He continued: Boris Johnson and POTUS has come and and said they didn’t die in vain, you say that face to face to a grieving wife or mum. Many of my mates are f***** in the head, f***** in the head from seeing f***** up shit! They will never forget.”
The families of British soldiers who martyred during the Afghan mission have likewise shared their fierceness and grief at the way that Afghanistan has been passed on to the Taliban, with no British or American troops offering help with the battle against the extremist group

Sarah Adams, whose child James Prosser passed at the age of 21 when his defensively covered vehicle was exploded in 2009 said she was left ‘asking what his sacrifice was for’.
The 59 years old told Dail Mail: “It’s devastating to see what’s being going on in Afghanistan over the past few days. Everything he worked towards will soon be torn apart. It’s heartbreaking to see what’s happening, not just for the families who lost sons and husbands, but for those who served and still carry the physical and mental injuries. Now it feels as if none of it was worth it.”
