I woke up today with the news that the Taliban were hours away from a complete takeover of all cities in Afghanistan.
All that blood and treasure wasted.
It was time to pull the plug on the stupidity and corruption of two decades of folly.
Nothing was learned from Vietnam. All the flowerily rhetoric about human rights and education for women ring true. But the ham-fisted implementation of an incompetent and venal government spelled disaster.
I’m reminded that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
