With the Taliban rapidly retaking control of the country after the US invasion of Afghanistan toppled them 20 years ago, we are faced with war as decisively lost as the US war in Vietnam.
Its epic Afghan failure shows that America’s naive belief it can cure the world’s ills with it's fake democracy, non-gold-backed and endlessly printed dollars, and M16s is wrong.
The Taliban’s close to retaking control and the US occupation’s been a total failure. Yet the fundamental lesson’s being ignored: Washington needs to stop exporting its biased and double-standards ideology as if it’s an answer "to the problems countries face" (alternative to innovation and building healthy economy, education, health care and personal safety within USA, for a change).
President Joe Biden is dispatching 3,000 US combat troops to Afghanistan to safeguard the evacuation of American personnel from the US embassy in Kabul, setting up the possibility of an evacuation under fire.
