Since the Taliban has taken over most of northern Afghanistan, Sara Carter caught up with a friend from the area on the latest episode of the Sara Carter Show. Now that U.S. troops are leaving, the Taliban has replaced them. On the phone her friend told her they’re desperate to get out of the country but risk losing their lives for trying. They will remain anonymous for their safety.

During her time covering Afghanistan as a reporter, she traveled with this friend and their family started to feel like her family. Now, they live in Kabul and the Taliban is nearing the capital city.

“We have not any where to go out from,” the friend said describing how trapped they are in the city. “They will kill us. We don’t have any choice.”

“So you’re saying that there’s no other choice,” Carter said. “The Taliban will kill you if they get to your house.”

“Come down to Kabul there is no chance to be alive because there’s no any way to escape from all around the province or taken by Taliban,” the friend explained. Another impossible option is to pay smugglers $20,000 a head to sneak out of the country.

“My heart’s breaking,” Carter told her friend. “I wish I could get to Afghanistan right now. I feel it would kill me if I go in though.”

“Don’t try to come down to Afghanistan,” they respond.

“This could be like another, you know, Saigon moment or something,” Carter said “But far worse, the Taliban will take no prisoners, they will slaughter them. And I, you know, my hearts broken, I don’t know what I can do.”

Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki sounded hopeful about the Taliban turning around. “The Taliban also has to make an assessment about what they want their role to be in the international community,” Psaki said.

VIDEO: Russia Moving Missiles Towards Finland Border

Putin has said in recent years that Finland is considered friendly so long as they do not join NATO. Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Sunday he has applied for NATO membership.

MetroUK tweeted chilling video and reported the following:

Russia has started moving nuclear-capable missiles towards its border with Finland hours after Moscow vowed not to tolerate Helsinki’s plans to join Nato.

The Kremlin issued a chilling warning that plans for both Finland and Sweden to sign up to the Atlantic alliance were a ‘grave mistake with far reaching consequences’.

Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said: ‘They should have no illusions that we will simply put up with it,’ and insisted ‘the general level of military tension will rise’.

The video was reportedly taken on a road leading to Vyborg, around 24 miles from the Finnish border, showing the deployment of mobile Iskander missiles.

“Seven launchers are thought to be en route according to commentary on a dash cam video broadcast by Russian media.”

A person on the video can be heard saying: ‘As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining Nato, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them is moving towards Vyborg.

‘Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.’
