Leaving the country you came to save

This is the real world. Not sitting around an office at Langley or “C” Street

Only a tiny percentage of Americans know anything about War. Few serve in uniform and indeed most could not find Afghanistan on an unmarked map. A defeated military does not leave the country they came to save as if checking out of a hotel. It is and has always been a messy process. That American political and military officials so badly misjudged the exit— is completely consistent with our conduct there for 2 decades. It’s over. The British, the French, the Russians and now the Americans have been expelled from Afghanistan. End of story
