    Assets/aid frozen or not, people will leave if not happy.
    Prospering economy, famine, dictatorship, East Germany, USSR etc, history has shown that people have always left freely or against their will.
    Has anyone wrote a report how many Americans have actually left America for countries like Australia, Canada and New Zealand?

    What are you talking about? It has already frozen $7 billion.
    And what ludicrous logic is that when you say if they freeze assets then the Taliban will not allow anyone to leave?
    I know keep people in Afghanistan by force living in abject poverty so they can rise up against you. Good one Jane. You must be an analyst with the NSA.

  3. sj,
    If the U.S. freezes their assets, do you really think the Taliban will allow Afghans to leave Afghanistan, according to your ridiculous scenario.

  5. "We have no choice but to establish dialogue with the Taliban."
    Translation? If the EU or west places sanctions or freezes Afghanistan's funds then there will be a tsunami of refugees heading for the west. Simple as that.
