As with every other left-induced debacle in contemporary America, the debacle of the Afghan withdrawal leaves rational patriotic Americans shaking their heads in disbelief and disillusionment. As with all the other debacles: COVID response, open borders, mollycoddling violent criminals, pushing socialism, transgender madness, out of control trillion, zillion spending – they are left to ask the question: How can all of this be happening in the greatest country in the history of mankind?
But let’s focus on Afghanistan for now, while keeping in mind the context of an America in severe decline. Look, whether we had twenty years or a thousand years, there was never going to be a way for us to fix Afghanistan. Why, we could no more fix what’s wrong with Afghanistan than we, apparently, can fix what’s wrong with . . . Portland! Or San Francisco! Or Baltimore! Or Chicago! Or you name the ruined, Democrat-run American city. Or for that matter, you name the particular section of the ruined American heartland, which is fast and deliberately being filled up with endless illegals.
