What is the State Department doing?

Why do private citizens have to step up to rescue Americans and others around Kabul?

Everyone knew this was going to happen once the US left. The question wasn’t “if”’ but merely “when”. The speed is the only surprising thing here.

The mistake wasn’t pulling out - had to happen at some point. The mistake was holding on to this thing for as long as we did. Osama bin Laden was killed a decade ago, probably left Afghanistan years before that.



Incorrect. The mistake was pulling out. To be more precise, the mistake was going in the first place knowing the current gods of our nation were going to intentionally sabotage the whole thing. Factually, they created the event (9/11). Used their neo con president to go to Afghanistan in the first place, and then used the current one to pull out. The whole affair was orchestrated by the same gods.

Going to a nation for a little while and then leaving has only come in vogue since Vietnam. Prior to that the US dedicated time and energy to long term commitments.

For some strange reason everyone believes we're going to up and leave, including us. Why is that? What is in everyone's head?

Happy Nine Eleven Everybody!

Thanks to the goat-herders who recently whooped our collective butts (again!) we can all "Never Forget" the thing that happened 20 years ago.

Solemnity for everyone! And . . . go!

I feel for your country's collective loss. Least we not forget.

Punishing Afghanistan was never going to be the answer though.

Someone just had to pay.

But it wasn't in vain though, even if you made a difference to 1 person then it was worth it and lets face it a difference was made to the lives of many.

The choice is now theirs

That is a nice post.

However, sometimes feeling ok, or being ok with something that is f@#$ed up, makes us forget to be pissed off. Turns people into sheeple.

It’s sad that Trump didn’t get re-elected because then leaving Afghanistan would have been a great idea… best idea ever!

It is the best idea ever for the Taliban, who trump cut the deal with.

The WAY in which the US pulled out of Afghanistan was a monumental clusterf#ck.

I think the monumental failure was in the information / intelligence on the ground.

This isn't the first time the US has pulled out / withdrawn / evacuated a location.

If you expect that the gov't and military would maintain a stable environment, no need to go into emergency crisis mode.

If everyone thought that the country would fall to the Taliban within days of withdrawal, then the moment dt mentioned the pullout should have had everyone high tailing it to the nearest airport.
