Unless the USA was willing to stay in Afghanistan for a century and bring back the military draft, President Biden was right to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan. Their government collapsed quickly, which was a surprise. We orchestrated a massive airlift in spite of everything.
I made the following assertions:
1. For those who say we should have stayed, let them enlist in the Armed Forces or persuade their younger relatives and friends to do so. Chickenhawks need to refrain from commenting.
2. Afghanistan was going to be a shitstorm no matter what, regardless of when we pulled out.
3. Calls to impeach the president are ridiculous.
4. Some countries are simply never going to be a democracy.
Finally, I am a Retired Army Reservist with Veteran Status and a chaplain. I have seen too many Soldiers/other GIs who have endured multiple deployments to Afghanistan and/or Iraq, and have sadly seen the consequences of their service.
