The war in Afghanistan has been an extremely long conflict since the United States occupied the country in 2001 to oust the Taliban from power. After the disorderly departure, the American occupation of Afghanistan was compared to the mistakes made during the Vietnam War. Now that a large number of US forces have left Kabul, reports show that the Federal Reserve branch in New York has seized $ 10 billion in assets from the Afghan central bank. In addition, last week, the Biden administration stopped shipments of dollars to Afghanistan.
America’s “disorderly” exit from Afghanistan is turning into a financial war
The war in Afghanistan, in which the United States was involved, was a long-standing foreign policy turbulence for the American bureaucrats who supported the invasion. 2021 “The fall of Kabul“It was a difficult exit, and critics of the US military-industrial complex compared the war in Afghanistan to the war in Vietnam.

FRBNY has $ 1.3 billion in Afghan gold bullion, which represents more than half of the Afghan central bank’s gold reserves. THE consolidated statement indicates that FRBNY owns approximately $ 6.1 billion of all assets. The Afghan central bank will not see these funds soon, as the US government believes they will fall into the hands of the Taliban. In addition, last week, the Biden administration stopped giving US dollars to Afghanistan to keep the funds away from members of the Taliban.

The additional forces that have emerged since the so-called exit from Afghanistan and the economic sanctions show that the United States is unwilling to withdraw so easily from the world order. Afghanistan is likely to have problems with the financial system monopolized by the global central banking system, just as many other nation states are discarded by the American bureaucracy. Nation-states like North Korea, Venezuela, Turkey, Iran, and now Afghanistan will feel the wrath of financial weapons and economic exclusion.
