I suspect that we should have started evacuating months ago, not just our people but Afghani nationals. Anyone who thought this would go well hasn't paid attention. Part of the reason that the Afghan army "failed" is that the government in Kabul was not popular and people weren't willing to defend them. Another reason is that Americans have this wierd idea that democracy is a one size fits all situation. It isn't. If China turned to democracy tomorrow it would not resemble American democracy but would be a purely Chinese democracy, factoring in Chinese culture, history and values. And such as it is in Afghanistan. I am heartsick for the people trapped there and the uncertain futures they face.
