The United Nations is coming to the rescue of the Biden administration when it comes to how to handle the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.
The U.S. ambassador to the U.N. described what’s being done to keep the Taliban in line:
🇺🇸 Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield says U.S. expressed "in no uncertain terms" at the United Nations through "a very strongly worded press statement" from the Security Council that "we expect the Taliban to respect women's rights" and "to be respectful of humanitarian law." pic.twitter.com/32TEyRFu4O

A “strongly worded press statement” should send the Taliban running for the hills!
A strongly-worded statement is fine, but what about a #hashtag. That would show the Taliban we are serious.

Did the statement include any hashtags? They won’t take it seriously without hashtags.

The Biden administration is probably focus grouping the hashtag possibilities as we speak!

If it had merely been a strongly worded press statement, it might be fair to criticize the Biden admin for not having a plan and exuding weakness. But it was a VERY strongly worded press statement. https://t.co/tXTz3SDR1m

Yes. The Taliban are very afraid of strongly worded press statements.

We told you Monday that the U.S. State Department also joined the U.N. in asking the Taliban-run government in Afghanistan to be “inclusive.”
