People and even countries are saying our leaving Afghanistan was a disaster. We spent 20 years there. Many lives, many injuries and billions of dollars was given up to help the Afghans free their country. We trained, supplied and helped them stand up for themselves. To make their country free from the Taliban.
Within a week the Taliban took over. It’s a slap in the face of every soldier that fought, was injured and even gave their lives for these people. Where were the Afghans? Did they think we were there forever? Was the United States considered “Daddy?” Why didn’t they stand up for themselves and fight for their own freedom like our own did in 1776.
I feel sorry for them but I shake my head because of the lack of resistance. Now they come running to us to take them away from the inevitable. It’s “save us daddy.” I can only shake my head.
