    Thanks for the clip from DeSantis. I agree (mostly) about the nation building but still worry about the ‘you break it, you fix it’ view. Now that the damage has been done is there anything we can do other than leave?

    I think the White House would have much more flexibility if the Pentagon has rolled back our involvement a decade ago. Transition functions to State and leave a few spec ops assets in country. At this point, I don’t see how they can sell any type of involvement to the general public.
