Wrong yeah dingus, anyone with a half-knowledge of Afghanistan’s history knows that it’s been “liberated” by plenty of nations, only for it to fall back where it was.
He had every reason to expect our intervention to turn out the same way (and it did), so why sign up? Why put your family in that sort of risk? Why not just keep your head down?
He backed our play when he had every reason to stay out.
By not supporting him, or people like him when things fell apart, we create a class of people saying “Don’t work with Americans, they screw you over.”
Which does not help us, and which I conveniently don’t see you denying RET.
