If the Taliban has been re-emboldened, which it seemingly has, according to both Fox and the NYT, what will the terrorist group do next under the weak Biden administration?
I do think some of the problem of the US involvement in Afghanistan goes back to the GW Bush days, a man I voted for twice before I realized he was a member of the Uniparty. I’m a slow learner.
I know many people feel let Afghanistan deal with the Taliban without any US troops or administrative people involved, the we can’t be the world’s peace savior forever point of view. I happen to think we can and should help save parts of the world that can’t otherwise save themselves. If the small number of troops we kept in Afghanistan was enough to keep the Taliban at bay, then what harm is it for them to stay?
What’s the point of US military strength if we don’t use our powers to protect?
Afghanistan is a topic that brings about lots of points of view. I don’t honestly know what’s right, other than my gut feeling that the Taliban retaking cities is not a good thing.
Where do you stand?
It’s Friday. Another horribly hot day and I’ll get myself to Bedford at some point, but otherwise not much on my agenda. Have a good one.
