The head of the British Armed Forces warned that with the withdrawal of American and other foreign troops, Afghanistan may go to civil war.
The British Chief of Defense Staff Nick Carter made a speech after announcing that most British soldiers had left Afghanistan, saying that if there were no international troops stationed in the country, it was “reasonable” that the country would collapse.

Afghanistan may have a situation similar to the country’s civil war in the 1990s. “In this case, you will see a culture of warlordism. You may see some important institutions such as security forces split along ethnic or tribal boundaries.” Carter said.
“In that case, I guess the Taliban will control part of the country. But, of course, they will not control the entire country.”
