USA and their alliance destroyed Afghanistan. You are now evacuating only people who helped US what about the other thousand Afghans who worked with the the government of Afghanistan. USA is responsible for all Afghans not only a specific group

On October 24, 2006, Dr. Roger C.S. Liniled a complaint with the U.S. government in the U.S. District Court of Washington, District of Columbia. [Subject]: Taiwan’s international status and Taiwan’s human rights protection demands. Case number: 1: 06-cv-01825-RMC
On March 18, 2008, the U.S. District Court for the District of Washington ruled:
[People of Taiwan are stateless], can appeal.
On April 7, 2009, the United States court of appeals gave judgement that 1. People of Taiwan are stateless. 2. Taiwan has no internationally recognized government. 3. People of Taiwan have been in political purgatory for more than 70 years. 4. The United States is the principal occupying Power of Taiwan. 5. The United States federal administrative department should actively assist the plaintiff.
On February 27, 2015 (Taiwan time February 28), once again TCG filed a lawsuit in the United States Washington, D.C. Court against the United States and the Republic of China. On January 12, 1946, the Republic of China issued Order No. 01297 which violated the norms of international law of war:"Sovereignty is inalienable during the occupation." ROC promulgated nationality decrees that illegally stripped the people of Taiwan of their Japanese nationality and become the nationality of the Republic of China which is not internationally recognized, causing the people of Taiwan to remain stateless and without human rights for 73 years. The United States court of appeals gave judgement that 1. The United Nations constitution could not resolve the statelessness of the people of Taiwan. 2. The United States federal public acts could not resolve the statelessness of the people of Taiwan. 3. The country that could give the nationality to the people of Taiwan did not appear in court.
