This was inevitable. Only huge American payoffs kept it propped up this long.
Every American general and colonel who ever signed a report calling the Afghan national army “good enough” should be fired and publicly disgraced. Every state department official should join them in public humiliation. They were either delusional or lying all along and should be held accountable for their lack of results. In most cases, the us military is incapable of recognizing the difference between great leaders and mediocrity. This is an example of total failure at the strategic and national level and should be treated as such.
Which city in American city gets to be the “Kabul” of the midwest? Didn’t we already see this movie? Doesn’t anyone understand that “bringing them here” is not the only possible solution? How about all those islamic countries?
