I am Team Get The Fuck Out Of Afghanistan which, as a friend pointed out to me today, has always been Team Taliban. It's Team Taliban or Team Stay Forever. There is no third team.

And so I sit here, reading these sad fucking articles and these horrified social media posts about the suffering in Afghanistan and the horror of the encroaching Taliban and how awful it is that this is happening but I can't stop feeling this grim happiness, like, finally, you fuckers, finally you have to face the thing Afghanistan has always been. You can't keep lying to yourself about what you sent us into.

I dunno. Lies come cheap. Republican lies----they practically give those away.

No worries.

The lies will now be about what Joe Biden got us out of.

You can't force a nation to fight for it's freedom. They either want to fight for freedom or they don't.

The Taliban will fight to the death. The Afghanis that we spent hundreds of billions on training and equipping were all too eager to drop their weapons and run when they had to fight.

This was doomed from the first day.

Should have pulled out when Bin Laden was given a third eye.

After the terrorist camps in Afghanistan were destroyed, our role there should have ended. Period. Full Stop.

If there is a lesson to be learned after 20 years it is that the generals, instead of politicians should have been put in charge of Afghanistan. To hell with trying to establish a civilian government modelled after the USA. Let the generals sort it out.

Afghanistan served its purpose.

It was the gateway into Iraq.

Mission Accomplished!

War is stupid and unpredictable. I appreciate those that serve a country through military service. The sad reality is we have politicians that feed off war lobbyists. We have states who make money-making war machines. Capitalism and war don't need to mix.
