    The problem is not that the troops were pulled out, but how they were pulled.... not to mention should we have been there to begin with?

    My opinion is if you go to war you go to win, and once you have finished you own/rule the country completely. Afghanistan and Iraq should now both be a commonwealth of the US in my view.

    The last war the US actually fought go win was WWII, since that time we now fight not go lose, and that's a big difference.

    PHOTO #1: US diplomats evacuate from US embassy as the PAVN and Viet Cong capture Saigon, Vietnam (1975)

    PHOTO #2: US diplomats evacuate from US embassy as the Taliban capture Kabul, Afghanistan (2021)

    20 years, thousands of American lives, hundreds of thousands of Afghan lives, trillions of dollars.

    All for nothing but the lined pockets of politicians, bankers and weapons contractors.

    End all of the wars, and bring all of the troops home.

    This 70 year old agrees 100%.

    The problem is that we have a standing army - it will find another "something to do in the name of freedom" (and no doubt with the best of intentions).

    If you are Taiwan and/or Ukraine, I’d be terrified. Yesterday’s events taught China and Russia they have nothing to fear.

    Joe is weak.

    Kamala even more so.

    Actions always speak louder than words.

    ^^^That was then--This is now

    Harris was reportedly pressed to give an update on Afghanistan to the American people but refused.

    White House source says Kamala Harris could be heard screaming today: “They will not pin this s*** on me!”

    I know hindsight is 20/20, but maybe, just maybe, the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan should have been focused on other things?
