The Taliban is apparently taking advantage of abandoned luxuries in Afghanistan, this time pedal boating on the lake of an empty park.
Check out these photos of a group of reported Taliban militants hitting up the waters in swan, flamingo and other bird-themed vessels at the Band-e Amir National Park near the Bamiyan Provience.
The Taliban members pedal while also making sure to carry their arsenal of weapons with them — including a rifle and what appears to be a rocket launcher.
It’s a bizarre scene … one of many that have surfaced of the Taliban in seemingly out of place situations — this, of course, after they’ve taken over Afghanistan and had their run of the place, following a chaotic withdrawal of U.S. and allied forces.
Not too long ago, guys from the Taliban filmed themselves hitting up a gym they found inside the walls of the Presidential Palace in Kabul — fiddling with the machines and yukking it up with each other in amusement.
Again … their giddiness — be it at the gym or on the lake here — is the complete opposite of what the reality is that they’ve set in place. Despite the Taliban promising to honor women’s rights … promises that have flown out the window, as they’ve recently declared a number of bans for the ladies still in town, including no secondary schooling — among other liberties being stripped.
